Baltimore Magazine's annual "Best of Baltimore" addition celebrates "all the best stuff in the best city in the world". Lenny's Deli beat the local competition in a head-to-head "throwdown".
"It's Lenny's! The inch-thick sandwich wins extra points for its melt-in-your-mouth beef and easy-on-your-wallet price."
"The pastrami and Swiss on rye is a solid build, with tender, peppery meat, thinly sliced and thickly stacked. You can guide the creation of these sandwiches, and we specified Swiss as the cheese choice. Lenny's delivered its melted glory in abundance. Along with the rye bread, this was a well-balanced and filling sandwich."The Baltimore Sun
"EVERYTHING is delicious. Best Tuna Salad ever, fresh bagels, great sandwiches and bakery. Worth the treat once in a while, great for breakfast!"Jess L | yelp.com
"The Reuben from Lenny’s delicatessen. This is an old Jewish deli in Jonestown- the best Reuben I’ve ever had. And there have been many. They mix together the corned beef and the sauerkraut on the flat top and then steam the cheese over it. Gahhh I need one now."Erin | spillthebeansblog
"The corned beef, which I sampled, however, was among the best I have ever tasted. (Order the regular, not the lean. If you want lean, go to a health club.) The corned beef was easily equal, if not better, than New York's."Roger Simon | Baltimore Sun
"Lenny's is a true New York-style deli. It's not cheap, but in this case, you get what you pay for - high quality, good-sized portions.
Their rueben is my go-to sandwich for lunch.
The staff is very friendly, and seems to have very little turnover. It's the same group of folks working practically every time I come here."Lauren B. | yelp.com
