great jewish comfort food, best hidden jewish deli, friendly service, really poor value, great matzo ball soup, good atmosphere, not excellent grilled chicken sandwich
I love the look in side the place. Has a great deli 1950's decor.
Matzo Ball was bland... they shold have boiled it in the chicken broth...but the soup was good over all.
The chopped liver was THE BEST I have had yet! Seasoned great and I loved every bite.
The Kishka and Gravy was sad. The best Kishka and gravy I've had so far is at The Ketella Deli in Los Alamitos. Canters doesn't carry it anymore.
Lastly, the restaruant made the mistake of have the crappy "Apffels" brand coffee. The worst.
Ca-ching!. In all honesty, I've never eaten at the Roll 'n Rye, but I heard their ad on the radio and went on-line to cop a look. The one common factor (no deli pun intended) in all the reviews is that they are way overpriced. I can't imagine what they do with their profits, 'cause they sure didn't spend it on the ad, which was strictly amateur. If they care that little about their image, I'm wondering how much they care about the food. Maybe next time I have $20 I don't need I'll go in for a sandwich.
Rip Off. I went with my wife to try this place out and it smelled like urine. I just sucked it up not wanting to make my wife upset. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and she ordered 2 pancakes. The bill was over 27.00. WTF?!
I love this deli. I think this may be the best deli in L.A. Actually it's more Chicago style than New York. Great food, wonderfully friendly wait staff and management. We love their Sunday brunch. Yes, it's not cheap, but the portions are large and so we often split.
Better than average deli food really poor value for money.
This place, while offering better than average NY style deli fare, and I'm being charitable here, is a very poor value. Most NY Style delis are overpriced (which is why I tend not to frequent them) but Roll 'n Rye takes the cake. For instance a 1/2 sandwich, cup of soup combo w/tax comes out to $16... takeout.
Not recommended unless you really crave this style of food or, are like the Century City sharp dressed lawyer I was talking to while waiting, bill your clients $300/hr. However to be fair the chicken soup is really good and the turkey is oven roasted on the premises, the bread was fresh. But for Pete's sake $16 for a cup of soup (served in one of those little, little styrofoam cups) and a half a sandwich? I even asked for hot deli mustard and the guy threw in a packet of regular French's mustard. For that kind of dough one should get what one asks for. I also asked for swiss cheese on the turkey san and got one very thin slice of swiss. $16! If it were more reasonably priced I would have given a 4 star rating. I think a fair price would be $9-10 for that given the quality and the restaurants location.
Pricey but deli-sh. I've been for lunch several times and the food is always good. The veggie burger isn't dry like most, the monte cristo and grilled cheese are chees-ily wonderful, and the pastrami sandwich GI-NORMOUS! Even the sides are really well done...the fries, the soups, the coles slaw - all really yummy and fresh tasting. They have a huge menu so if you go there, try and have an idea of the general kind of food you want. It feels like a really spacious and cleaner NYC deli. The service is friendly and they never handle the cash, just pay up front when your ready to go. BUT this place is pretty pricey, especially considering its lunch.
If you want good food, you'll have to pay. Finally a place in Culver City worth going to twice. Great food, friendly service and lots of choices, especially for vegetarians. Prices are a little high but I left feeling like it was worth it.
Holishkes - Is This Place Good!. Bagels and lox, gefilte fish, matzah ball soup, knishes, blintzes, latkes, kugel, and egg creams. It's all here and more. And it's all good. Bubbeh and Zaydeh will love it. But come here for the excellent Jewish comfort food, not the grilled chicken sandwich or hamburger and fries. That you can get anywhere. No, this is one of those special places that offers great food that is really not around anymore. And for this you have to pay a little more. It ain't Taco Bell or Chinatown Express. This is GOOD food. There's a difference, and it comes at a price. So dig a little deeper in your pockets and enjoy food. You'll be glad you did. L'CHAYIM!
BEST HIDDEN JEWISH DELI IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. While prices are high, so is the quality and quantity of each meal. Come hungry and you will not be disappointed. Have been coming to this institution for 40 years and look forward to each dining experience. I have never had to wait for a table and the service is very pleasant. Try it once and you will be a repeat customer.
It's a Find. The food here is amazing. Sure the prices are a bit on the high side but you can't beat the portions. You won't leave this place feeling unsatisfied. The pickled sides are amazing, I hear its an old family recipe... don't miss the pickled tomatoes, wow!. The place is a classic traditional Jewish Deli. Good people, good atmosphere, great eats. Don't miss it. Cheers.
