Where to Eat Ben and Irv's Jewish Deli Justa Farm County Line Rd

2017 ben irv

Many years ago there were delicatessen's  in all the neighborhoods .Today it is really hard to find a really good deli with authentic Jewish cuisine. It is not the food it is financing and the big food chains .What a loss . Just lately Jacks a local deli in the Bustleton section of NE Philadelphia Pa closed its doors and said Good Bye to the dismay of many .


Saturday was Ben and Irv's Deli in Huntington Valley  Dinner with a friend at the neighborhood deli . The local deli is about thirty minutes away but the food is worth the ride . I had a Groupon $16 for $30  worth of food .


  • The  menu is at least three of four pages long . I love the soup . My favorite is mushroom barley . My friend ordered  matzo ball . We split a corn beef special on rye no seeds . I like mine hot she got hers cold .It is so big neither of us  could finish a whole sandwich . The service is exceptional and usually there is a line and a wait . Normally you see someone you know which we did  They stop at your table and chit chat


  • There was also a bowl of delicious pickles  on the tables . So nice and salty that my ankles swelled up on Sunday  something that has not happened to me for a very long time . Oh and did I  mention an old fashioned fountain glass of mint chocolate chip ice cream so big that I complained that I wanted a small scoop . The waitress came over and laughed graped my hand and said that is small . I said no I want a little scoop you don't understand I will eat it all. She laughed at me again. Seriously I was not trying to be funny . Eat it all I did .Then she gave me an oatmeal raisin cookie . Here she said you are just a little short of your Groupon.


Ouy Vey .  Ga Sint ter Hage - You should live and be well .  I asked my friend to leave the tip I would take care of the check  Then when you leave you stop at someones table chit chat and say good-bye


We stopped in  Hot Foot Boutique
