If you want a traditional corned beef or pastrami sandwich, or smoked fishes this is by far the best, however if you want a tuna sandwich, potato pancakes, or a good cup of coffee this place is the pits. You get alot of tuna, but if there is more then mayo in it that's alot, very fishy tasting. I love tuna and this is the most disappointing tasting tuna I have ever had. Also most of the people are not friendly, the owners don't even look at you.

Are you kidding me? A co-worker of mine told me he was going there, so I brought up the menu. I ordered a brisket sandwhich on an onion roll with mayo.....it was awesome! I ordered fries too! Now for the price I paid, it was so well worth it. Know this....when the pickle is delish, you've batted a thousand! You rock 4th Street Deli!! I'll personally make the trip next time.

Growing up in NY, the word 'deli' stood for the iconic restaurant where you could over dose on incredible corned beef, piled so high that you could not get your mouth to open wide enough to get both slices of bread in at the same time. The real 'belly' lox jolted you when you took your first bite with a great bagel and a loaded 'schmeer". Well this place nails it. Yes the sandwiches cost more than $10. But where can you get that quality and quantity for less? Want to pay less, then go to Dunkin Donuts for a sandwich. I wish they would develop more Famous Deli's around the country. This ownership still knows how to do it right!

The pastrami is better than the Carnegie. They could work on their sides especially the tasteless potato mush pancakes. However I go back all the time because their meets are so incredible. If you want NY deli in Philly this is the best option

Been there at least 3 or 4 times over the last so many years..........forget it, never liked it and never did my husband.......we always wondered why it was supposed to be so famous.

Excellent service, huge portions. Just share if you feel there is too much food, and take the rest home. They will even provide the containers. It offers an old time deli atmosphere and great deli food. It has become a staple in our restaurant repetoire, and we are even more delighted that a branch has opened on 19th street. Same great food. Don't miss Famous. It does not disappoint, and it lives up to its reputation.

I grew up in Long Island, NY, raised on Jewish Deli food for Sunday brunch...Whenever my brother comes to town from Boston-his family and mine meet at Famous 4th Street for brunch. Whenever I visit my sister in DC, I bring bagels and lox from Famous. Absolutely fabulous food!
