Opened by Murray Hill Police Sergeant Abe “Sarge” Katz in 1964, this perennially popular 24-hour deli has been satiating customers for decades. The menu includes over-stuffed corned beef sandwiches, giant flame-broiled burgers, homemade matzo ball soup, and mouth-watering cheese blintzes.
Sink your teeth into Sarge’s warm and juicy pastrami sandwich and you’ll probably agree with Sarge’s ardent fans that this is one of the best Jewish delis in New York. The secret? Sarge’s cures its own meats with special spice rubs, using recipes handed down over three generations. Sarge’s cheesecake is made the old-fashioned way; with a crunchy graham cracker crust, vanilla flavor, and with creamy texture—it’s impossible to resist. So give in to your cravings and order a slice. Or two.
Souper Soup—With Kreplach, a Matzo ball and noodles
Potato Pancake—Served with applesauce
Sarge’s Favorite—Hot brisket of beef on a potato pancake with gravy and applesauce
Corned Beef Hash—Our finest corned beef blended and grilled, served with three eggs
Hot Pastrami Sandwich
After an hour and a half, I called to find out where our food was. She said it was already out for delivery and would be here within 5 minutes. Half an hour later, it showed up - ice cold.
The delivery was bad, but the food was worse. Greasy, oily sandwich with cold congealed cheese on top. Slimy, cold fries. Watery, powdered mashed potatoes. Revolting macaroni and cheese - like watered-down Velveeta and mayonnaise on overcooked noodles.
It was already too late at night to order something else, so we reheated and choked down a few bites. We would have been better off going hungry - now we're both nursing aching, nauseated stomachs.
Tl;dr: Never again. Super late delivery, gross food, got sick.

Ordered the corned beef, and it was all shredded pieces instead of your traditional thin slices--very underwhelming . Corn muffins were super starchy. I also ordered a cream cheese bagel.... hard to screw that up, right? Guess again. How did this place get 4 stars??

They charged me extra for avocado (which wasn't an option I could pick to be charged for), then the delivery guy waited downstairs for me to pay in cash instead of charging my account, then he left because I couldn't get there in time, then he came back with the food. The food was mediocre at best and then I had stomach cramps and related problems the next day (i.e. the food was likely tampered with). This place is awful.

Sarge's has DEFINITELY improved since they closed for fire and reopened. Sarges is hands down the best Lean Corned Beef and Pastrami in NY. I was afraid it was a one time thing when I received the Pastrami with barely any fat at all. I've ordered four more times and each time I get fabulous meat!! Congrats Sarge's! You are now #1 Deli in NY in my estimation!! Burgers are fabulous and big also!!

Best chicken soup in nyc!!

So I got my delivery. I asked for rye bread with pastrami and corned beef platter. Not only did I not get any bread but no mustard either. I called and spoke to Sean. He said they put six slices of rye in the bag along with the condiments. Come on Andrew! Time to order from Second Ave. Deli. With a $1.50 delivery fee the least you can do is get it right. At this point, by the time I get the bread you can have your order back!

Pastrami is amazing. Melts in your mouth and perfectly seasoned. Matzo ball soup is one of the best in the city. Better than Katz's.

First and last time ordering from Sarge's Deli. Food arrived well over one hour and past the estimated delivery time. Sandwich was cold. Coffee was lukewarm at best. The expensive delivery minimum is simply not worth the trouble. Skip out on this deli.

Chicken in a pot is the BEST delivery chicken soup in the neighborhood. Literally taste like my mother's (excellent) chicken soup. Huge amount of soup, maybe 2qts worth? Generous amount of chicken, an enormous, well-textured matzo ball, carrots that aren't mush, and great broth. They're really good about accommodating side instructions (I ask for no green peas in the soup), soup is well packed, delivery is fast, and no drama. Chicken pot pie is also wonderful and tastes wonderfully homemade. I did not love their burger, but it certainly wasn't the worst I've had in the neighborhood. This is overall a fantastic, reliable place, that is my top choice for chicken soup.

Based on the reviews here, I was reluctant to order from Sarge's. Well, I ordered at 4:15 PM on a weekday, I'm 30 blocks away, and my food arrived in 22 minutes! Also, the delivery guy wasn't rude and he came to my door.
Posted 2 years ago by Lewis G.
If you’re hungry or need a quick meal, don’t order from Sarge’s. I waited two hours for my food yesterday evening. Every time that I called, the person on the other end of the phone was could care less that my food hadn't arrived. That’s horrible customer service. After the food finally arrived, my "hot" $17 sandwich had obviously cooled off quite a bit. I didn't accept the food and asked for a refund, which they said that they would process. As of this afternoon, no refund has been processed. It's a shame, I was really looking forward to trying their food. I won’t be able to now, because I'll never order from them again.

The food took an over hour to get to me and the delivery man was so rude. He called to ask me to meet him somewhere so he wouldn't have to walk the entire way to my building and floor (he said he had to park far away) and when I said no he hung up on me. I'm at work. I can't leave. That's why I ordered DELIVERY. I will never order again and tell everyone what a disappointment and failure this place is.

Disgusting. Food was ice cold when it arrived (75 minutes after ordering) & sitting in a pile of grease. Tried microwaving it & choking it down, but I couldn't. The few bites I ate are sitting heavy in my stomach. STAY AWAY!! I am easy to please, but this was ridiculous. Would give zero stars if I could-- literally nothing was edible.

Do Not order if you are not within a mile radius of their shop (3rd Ave between 36th and 37th). Average delivery times - 1.5 to 2hrs. Not just once but I tried on many different occasions. Worse still, they do not have any tracking system of their delivery person. And to top that up, they only have one driver so they can't even dispatch another order to make up for it. You will be asked to 'wait' even if it has been 2 hrs since your placed your order.
Horrible experience. Cold food, bad service, horrendous delivery times.

I order food almost daily as I am not a big cook. When I say,this is the worst food delivery I have ever had, I mean it. I threw away the entire order! potato knish tatsed cold and was freezing cold in the middle.... The French onion soup tatsted like onions in hot water. The broth was actually close to clear in color... I am so unhappy I just wasted $15. This place should be ashamed they would such horrible food.

Ahhh, Sarge's. It's a love-hate relationship with you. I've tried to tell myself not to order you when I stumble home drunk but I always find myself opening my browser and clicking to you. You never fail to deliver at any hour and the food is always great.
All the sandwiches are awesome...the pastrami is ridiculously good. I have an unhealthy love for buffalo chicken wings and have probably ordered it over 10x. For some reason, they make it better then most places I've had them in NYC (as good as Wogie's which some consider one of the best). I got the whole chicken soup once when I was sick and it was really really good. It's really a whole chicken cooked with carrots, celery, noodles and a giant matzo ball. Only lacks a star because my friends ordered once from my buffalo wing reco and got food poisoning. You win some, you lose some.

We ordered food and the delivery said it would take 50-65 minutes. At 85 minutes we called to see where the order was and a lady apologized and said it was on the way. At 105 minutes we called just as the food was delivered to complain to get a refund because we had to wait an excessive amount of time for our food. The manager spoke to me and refused to give a refund, repeatedly saying that a refund was up to them to decide and not for us to decide. I rate this a one star because there food is okay but the rude and poor customer service gives them a one. They lost a customer. The manager did not once apologize and was completely rude.

Pastrami Sandwich was good. But whatever you do, do not order the borscht. Borscht is not supposed to be sweet and is supposed to have substance to it with cabbage and chunks of meat. We ordered both the regular borscht and the cold borscht. The regular was colder than the cold borscht. Really disappointed and slightly insulted that a Russian iconic food is being trampled on by something that looks and tastes like cranberry juice and has a similar consistency. Lay off the sugar.

The food here is incredibly reliable. Despite being a bit pricey for a deli, the sandwiches here are very tasty, yet smaller than those at 2nd Ave Deli. Mozzarella sticks and soups are also quite good, as are the knishes!
My only complaint is that delivery takes FOREVER. Standard delivery time is about an hour from when you place the order (but at least they're upfront about it).

Food arrived totally cold. I ordered chicken fingers. They arrived cold and soggy and dripping in honey mustard sauce because the sauce had opened up in the bag.

I ordered the three fresh eggs any style with bacon. The eggs were supposed to be over medium, but they were very runny. The food was just warm when it got here, and the bacon wasn't crispy. I enjoyed the iced tea though, because it was freshly brewed despite being for delivery.

it's been almost two hours and i'm still waiting for my order. when i called, it was over an hour since i placed my order, and they said it was next in line to LEAVE. i hope my food that arrives is at least good and worth the wait. one star for taking so long and i will not order from here again.

Love a good deli sandwich and Sarge's didn't disappoint. Had eaten there before, but this was the first delivery. Order came relatively quick and everything was warm/fresh. Food portions seemed even larger than I remembered. Will definitely order there again.

Delivery was prompt and the food came hot. The latke was big and impressively crispy considering it was delivered wrapped in foil. Well-seasoned and tasty.
Matzoh ball soup was good but be aware that consomme means you're not going to get any veggies in the soup - just broth and matzoh ball.

The best pastrami sandwich I have ever had...filling, fresh, juicy goodness...how can one go wrong?
Posted 3 years ago by Amy L.
Sarge's has delicious sandwiches. The hot pastrami with mustard is DELICIOUS. The sandwiches are so big that they could easily feed two hungry people. Or feed one person for several meals. I have only picked up from the restaurant, never had food delivered, so I can't speak to that. But it's definitely worth ordering from here.

sarge's is a dependable neighborhood old world ny deli. my last order i got the chicken consomme with matzoh balls, fried kreplach, kasha varnishkas, and a tongue/pastrami combo on rye. everything was as good as usual except the sandwich. i guess i should've ordered the leaner versions of the pastrami and tongue because although it was tasty, they were a bit fattier than usual. that being said, i would order from sarge's again as i have in the past.

The sandwiches are quite delicious. The pastrami is really succulent and flavorful though quite fattening. The corned beef is... everything you'd like corned beef to be. Though overpriced, the sandwiches are quite large and extra bread is probably necessary. They come with rather disappointing pickles. The french fries are pretty good too, fat and crinkle cut, they're very satisfying. Delivery time was thankfully less than the estimate and took a reasonable amount of time.

So disappointed with my order and service. Being sick, I ordered 2 QUARTS of "chicken soup" to last the duration of my sickness. The delivery was timely, sure, but when I went to portion out some soup for myself, there was no chicken, vegetables, or noodles. Just broth and matzoh balls. I called the deli, dismayed at having received the wrong delivery, only to be informed that I was mistaken and that the broth and matzoh before me was in fact their version of chicken soup. Where's the chicken? I asked. It's chicken broth. well thanks, sarge, i got that much. Without any sort of apology for the confusion, the offended deli representative told me that this was how they'd been making chicken soup for 50 years and how they would continue to do so.
That's fair. Carry on. Just please make a note on your menu that your chicken soup does not actually have any chicken in it. And be nice to your customers.

Think twice about ordering from Sarge's because their delivery will take twice as long as the listing indicates. And when we called to ask about the whereabouts of our order, they were full of excuses. ("Just wait fifteen minutes more...") Sarge's really needs to rethink its delivery zone and estimated delivery time, because it's bordering on fraud. Hopefully, SeamlessWeb will make them change these falsities on their website. Sarge's food is not worth the wait.
Posted 4 years ago by Charles R.
It took over an hour to get my food, which was cold when it arrived. Sarge's is at 36th and 3rd, but for some reason has chosen to offer deliver to the Upper West Side. Though I appreciate wanting to offer a wide delivery area, many customers will not realize how far their food will have to travel, which will lead to long waiting times and cold food.

Corned Beef ... Mmmmm. And the portions are huge (they better be considering their prices!). Overall, can't find a better late night deli that delivers at any hour of the day.

Sarge's has poor customer service. We ordered food and received a delivery confirmation at 11:23am. At 1:15 our food had still not arrived. When we called to inquire they told us that the food was on the way but would not provide any compensation for our 2 hour wait. I don't recommend ordering from this restaurant.
Posted 4 years ago by Joanna G.
I don't live near Sarge's but after finding them on Seamless last year, I ALWAYS order soup and fresh-squeezed orange juice when I have a cold (and I've sent it to friends when they're sick, which is a huge hit). It's not the kind of place that delivers in under 20 mins, but they always make it within 45 and the delivery guys are SO nice.
Some of the review mention a lack of chicken pieces in the soup, but for "Jewish Deli" soup in NY, that's actually the norm - some would call it "Chicken Stock" but Sarge's is so full of FLAVOR, its more than just a stock.
The Matzoh Brie is also fantastic, the same as my mom would make (scrambled, no onions, etc). Its a generous portion, but somehow I finish it every time.

this place is the best late-night order option in the neighborhood. the stuffing and spinach and that kind of stuff is really good, but i usually just get one of their burgers and french fries which are realllly good. the only problem is that once in a blue moon they'll undercook it, otherwise it's a huge juicy burger not the lame flat kind that many diners around give. same with the fries, when they're smaller pieces and crispy they're awesome as opposed to the rare times that they're chunky and dry.

They should get no stars! I ordered on Sunday morning at 830 am. There is no traffic at this time of morning. At an hour and forty minutes I still have not received my food. They supposed left 30 minutes ago. It doesn't take that long to get here. So now I'm going to get cold eggs. When I called they made up some excuse about a freight elevator. But as you can see from others people comments they are consistently late with horrible service. If you expect warm food, or good service don't order from here. Seamless web, you should take them off the service because they don;t deliver what they promise!

When it finally got here, the order was wrong and all the food was cold. Don't waste your time here; theres plenty of other diners that are much better and friendlier

I recently ordered "Old Fashioned Chicken Soup" from Sarge's assuming it would be some form of chicken noodle soup. What arrived was a quart of terrible tasting chicken broth with nothing in it. I called to complain about this only to be informed that Sarge's "doesn't put chicken or vegetables in their chicken soup and you are expected to order the noodles separately if you want noodles in your soup." The service was horrible and the food even worse. I would absolutely not recommend this restaurant.

Very good for brunch. I ordered the eggs benedict with home fries. The home fries were done perfectly, not too burnt, but not too mushy. The muffin was good. I gave it a 10 sec heat up in the microwave and spread some butter on it and it was delicious. I would def order from here again. The reason I gave this restaurant 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because it seems unbelievable to be that delivery takes an hour for poached eggs and a muffin. I know that they advertise the wait time to be 50-65 min but I still think that is unreasonable. Otherwise, good food.

Unfortunately for Sarge's, great food is not enough (and their food is great!) I order delivery online frequently and I need a delivery restaurant to be *reliable* and at least minimally courteous. This was not the case the other night when their estimated delivery time was 50 to 60 minutes and my actual order took 1 hr 45 minutes. When I called after nearly an hour and a half to ask what was going on the lady sounded confused and didn't seem to know where the guy was. She said he was new. She didn't apologize. When the guy finally got here he didn't apologize either or even address the fact he took nearly two hours to arrive. I asked him if he got lost he said, no, he got stuck in traffic. If it were my business that would have been my cue to say, "I'm sorry it's so late!" Needless to say, the food was cold.

The site warned delivery would take 65-80 miutes. Even that wasn't enough. It took over an hour and a half for the overpriced food to arrive. When I called to ask where my food was he said they all just went out without even asking my name.

I like the food at Sarge's, though for my last few orders they have exceed the far end of the delivery range by as much as 20-minutes (= a deliver time exceeding an hour) and the food arrives cold. I believe that they wait until they have multiple orders to deliver and then set up some form of queue. I generally don't mind waiting for an order, as long as the food is delivered hot. Cold food and a lengthy delay is what I call a double negative. It is highly unlikely that I will be ordering from Sarge's for delivery again, despite the great corned beef.

I ordered a pizza burger well done from Sarge's @ 12:36 am on 12/22/2009. The burger arrived an hour later and it was rare to medium-rare (completely red and uncooked in the center). When I called them back they didn't even offer to send me another one, I had to ask. And then the manager even called back to tell me that the cook told him that it was well done and that they wouldn't be sending the french fries again, just the hamburger. After another hour, and after me having to call them back again to see what was taking so long, the burger arrived. It was well-done this time, but ice-cold as were ther french fries that preceded it by an hour. How a restaurant like this stays in business is beyond me, but I will never order from them again.

the food came late, it was cold and had very little flavor. I got eggs Benedict - the ham seemed to be of a lower grade, it was tough and as though it had strings through it. the ggs were poached just perfectly, but there was no taste, and the hollandaise sauce was missing. I had to keep adding salt and pepper. I got borscht another day and it came completely cold, which is not the way I have had it served before. the potatoes were also undercooked...

While the food is decent, this is the second time in a row that an order from Sarge's (for a single turkey sandwich) has taken more than an hour to arrive. Both times I've called after 45+ minutes and was informed, "Oh, it's leaving right now", only to have to call back and inquire again another 20+ minutes later as to why my turkey on rye had been backburnered. I imagine the team of in-house researchers who study the nuances of the turkey sandwich and recommend experimental approaches for its construction and transportation was otherwise occupied. Completely unacceptable. At the very least the estimated delivery time should be doubled from the 15-30 minutes listed on SW (maybe tripled just to be safe).

I will never order from this place again. The delivery time was well over an hour, when on the description it promised 15-30 minutes.

there are very few places out there that make a good overstuffed roast beef sandwhich. Sarges does it and doesn't charge you like katz's or Carnegie deli.

Excellent food !! Best Brisket Sandwhich in NYC hands down!

The burger (pastrami + beef) & fries (potato slices that are crispy) are delicious! Same goes for the swedish meatballs.

Quick delivery. Corned beef sandwich was just okay.

Never received order. They initially claimed that they had rain delays and my order was going out soon. They eventually claimed that they never received my order and didn't know who I was.

I've ordered from this place a number of times and have no complaints so far. They delivered on time, within 20-30 mins (of course, I only live a couple of blocks away), and the food has been great. Except fries - they seem to recycle their leftover fries.

Mushroom barley soup was good. Cheese fries were horrendous and should not be made that way! Only reasonably priced with a discount.

Yummy. It may take over an hour to get the delivery in the middle of the night, but the wait is worth it.

I have been ordering from Sarge's at least twice a week ever since I found them about a year ago. Everything is top quality, fast delivery, and always delicious. You can't go wrong with Sarge's! And the Grilled Chicken Ceasar Salad Platter is the best I have ever had!

2 hours just for a sandwhich???? HORRIBLE

Food is good - but don't count on it arriving anywhere NEAR what they say.
If you want food on time, this is NOT the place to get it from.
They are slow and disorganized.

If you want to have Sarge's, you should make sure you order the night before so you can get it when you are ready to eat. Its only the second time I have ever ordered from this place and the first time took 2 hours to get delivery. Since that was a football sunday afternoon, i gave them the benefit of the doubt. So I tried again and they beat their original delivery time by 5 minutes. I can't even rate the food because its like eating yesterday's leftovers by the time it gets here.

Good corned-beef sandwich. Below-average knish.

The food is decent but make sure you're ready to wait well over an hour for delivery. If you call the restaurant to inquire about your order, you'll get the standard response that delivery is on its way. There is an added annoyance of getting the call that your delivery has arrived only to wait in the lobby while delivery gets to you. I will not order from this vendor again.

Burgers were good, and took about 40 minutes to deliver. Would definitely order again from them.
