This is hands down the best pastrami I've ever had in my life. Best sandwiches, best service, best chill environment, hands down. And we got a bonus cookie!!

A trip back to NYC. Simple and max taste. No need to say more. Plenty of seating. Recommend roasted garlic & onion cream cheese.

Good sandwiches. Great depending on what you get. No frills vibe. Go to a cooler, grab a drink, go to counter, order food. The best part is the portions. Like, hot damn, they were big. Seating can be a problem, but get cozy and sit next to a stranger. More...

Delicious food! Great customer service! Always a packed house but they move the line quickly! One of my favorite spots in Nola.

Rachel was delish!  From someone that has eaten a few good sandwiches, I was very happy with it.  Dude behind the counter, I think maybe the owner...lighten up.  If customers, questions and all that bothers you to where you can't say hello or thanks, hire someone who can.  I think you've clearly got a good thing going, but you're in the south now so show some hospitality.

Went to Stein's today for lunch & had the most delicious sandwich, a Ruben. It was all it was supposed to be. I love this restaurant & that's why I was so surprised when I brought the matzah ball soup home for dinner it was burning my mouth, & I don't mean fire heat. It was so full of pepper, I could hardly eat it. I thought matzo ball soup was supposed to be soothing to the mouth, stomach & soul ... it wasn't. More...

This was a welcome surprise - super legit Jewish deli food out of a small space that feels like a corner store, with candy and soda pop surrounding the small dining area.I ordered a pastrami Rachel on marbled rye, a potato knish, sour pickles and a Doc Brown's Cream Soda to wash it all down. First the sandwich: wow. I'm a fan of deli food and have been to some of the best on both coasts, but Stein's can definitely hold its own. The bread was great, the cuts of meat were great, and the synergy between all the parts was undeniable. This was one of the best pastrami Rachel's I've had.Sour pickles were tasty, and the knish was solid. The standout was definitely the sandwich, but nothing was bad.This was a nice break from the Creole food and po' boys we normally stuff ourselves on in NOLA. Solid eats - we'll be back. More...

Was in town in June for a trade show and ran into this place by accident!  And bo6 am I glad I did!  It's a funky deli and sit down joint in a side street but since the line was ou5 the door and the smells were amazing I hooked a right and waited!  The line didn't take long to get through and through food was fresh and packed with flavor!  Service was excellent and since I took mine to go it was nice you could hear them call your number! They have an array of meats and breads along with plenty of fixings!  If you want a simple, fresh food, love flavor and appreciate good service in the heart of NOLA then this is your place!  To see more pictures of this place and others go to Kam Finds Food page on Facebook and Instagram and join the foodie community!

Has the best selection of independent and indie beer companies to choose from. Their secret beer room in the back is a great touch to the market as a whole. It's isn't the easiest place to find which I think also adds to the specialness to this business. Whenever I'm in the mood to drink beer, I don't go anywhere else but here. More...

Coming from Philadelphia, seeing the pork roll egg and cheese on a bagel was pure happiness. I usually go for the bacon egg and cheese on an onion bagel and it's always delish. Sausage is just as great too. I'll admit I've tried their hoagies and I'm not impressed. They've done philly breakfast right but I don't know about lunch just yet. Overall great place. The decor alone will keep you busy while eating. More...

Stein's is a hoppin' locals spot in an up and coming location on Magazine. They have a vast deli selection of meats and cheese plus loaded sandwiches and salads and the best NYC style bagels in town!!!! They have a great drink and beer selection too!! The ambiance is like NYC meets NOLA with large communal table tops inside and picnic seating outside. I get a toasted bagel with avo, lettuce, tomato, and capers! Sandwiches come with delicious pickles. My friend got the Rachel sandwich and loved it.  We had a bit of a wait but the service was great! They totally made up for it by offering my friend a free drink on account of his wait. Great deli!! Highly recommend Stein's for locals and tourists alike. More...

Hipster/superhero nerd ambiance. They are know to give a bit attitude but don't take it the wrong way. It's what makes them, them. They also have a great selection of beverages and snacks as well as a wide variety of beers in the back. I got their pastrami Reuben (very good). More...

Oh dear god yes! This place is amazing Food quality is great, atmosphere is fun and their beer selection is awesome.One of my tattoo artist friends visited me from Southern California and one of the places I took him to was Stein's.

Delicious breakfast sandwiches, worth waiting in line and enduring the hectic shop for. There is picnic bench seating inside, but I felt pretty crowded sitting there by the people waiting for food. Service was great and food was awesome, but I would suggest taking it to a nearby park and enjoying it there. My personal favorite sandwich is their take on the Mufaletta, which really only varies in the bread and the quality of ingredients (the highest I've tasted!). It is awesome and I would recommend.

The best sandwich shop in New Orleans without a doubt. My favorite sandwich on the menu is The Rachel, it's divine. Further, they have a daily special that is usually great, I love the Italian Beef in Saturday's.

Generous portions n inexpensive.  Traditional NYC deli in NOLA!  Best bagels, cream cheese, and sandwiches in town.  Park on the street.  You can dine in or takeout.  Great for breakfast!  I always get the salmon bagel loaded with everything.  Great selection of sodas, alcohol n coffee.  Locals m tourists go here.  Music is always s jamming.

I used to drive by this place all the time without ever noticing it before. It's tucked between a couple of places so it may be hard to spot, but don't overlook this place!  They have all kinds of bread and all kinds of meat to enjoy here. I personally got a turkey panini and it was great!  If you're like me and like a little spice you're going to have to add a little in there to give it some flavor.  Otherwise the bread was incredibly soft and the sandwich well prepared!  They don't have an abundance of seating so beware if you're going with a larger group.  It's a nice place to grab something to go or stop in for a quick bite! Can't wait to try some more items on the menu! More...

The San sandwich is one of my favorite sandwiches in the city. I would give them 5 stars but there are some consistency issues.They cook the pastrami on a flat top, and in ranges from deliciously crispy to just short of burnt. On a good day the food is amazing, and I'll freely admit I've eaten there 3 weekends in a row before. More...

Don't let the iconic Stein frown fool you, there's nothing but love here. Incredible hard to find market items, legit east coast deli sandwiches and bagels, tremendous beer selection, a strong sense of caring about quality and unapologetic authentic personality. The bacon, egg and cheese bagel was everything I remember from my days in the northeast (and Philly/Jerseyites they have Taylor ham). The old fart with liver and tongue was divine, and the meatball sub was note perfect down to the melted cheese. More...

Tag Line:  A jewish deli sneaked away in the Magazine Street district of Nola (think Magazine and Washington), serving hot, cold and delicious sandwiches.   They provide the wifi that District Donuts doesn't...The Good:  The Rueben, and most of what I've had, is served hot a delicious.  A really amazing sandwich that will fill you up!  Cool communal tables so you get to meet someone new.   Fast service for the number of people at any given time. The Bad:  The Fernando is a grilled sandwich but the inside meats don't get hot so your stuck with a half hot half cold sandwich.  The potato salad is a little tart for me and lacks much flavor.  And if you don't like communal tables you need to get it to go.  That it for seating options. Food:  5/5Atmosphere: 5/5Service: 5/5Cleanliness: 5/5Price: $$Today my friend and I have settled on the Hot Corned Been Reuben and the Fernando.    The Fernando is a pesto and prosciutto sandwich.   Stein's deli features communal tables so if you want to sit alone and be to yourself I would avoid this spot.   Even on off hours it's pretty popping'.   They also feature an extensive drink selection, a coffee bar and a large beer selection if you work your way to the back of the store.  The front shelves feature a collection of high-end take-homes like pastas, sauces and cookies.The atmosphere Is cool and gives you a false sense of New York..thinking it's packed and busy like a New York deli would be accurate...thinking that any New York deli would have this much open space and head room would be a mistake.   It's been there for 12 years according to their Facebook page update person.The food is generally on point and today we expect to find out the same.  Check out the video to see our total experience.  The food, the atmosphere and the rest of the caboodle.  Dishes Tried:Hot Corned Beef RuebenHot corned beef, sauerkraut with melted Swiss on Rye, featuring Russian Dressing.FernandoImported Prosciutto,  house made pesto and fresh mozzarella served on Ciabatta bread.  (Note:  My friend substitutes the Sour Dough because she finds the Ciabatta doughy.)

There's a reason they get almost all 4 and 5 stars.. Any review with less is about someone that didn't get they're ego stroked correctly, but not about the food.. And why else do u go to a deli..it's about the food, idiots. You want a real sandwich Go to Steins, shut up and eat.. More...

LOVE LOVE LOVE- Who doesn't love a good Jewish style deli? The place is old and looks like a hole in the wall but amazing and very busy. You order and sit down wherever there is room. We came for brunch and it was pretty crowded. I got the bagel and lox and it was amazing. Highly recommend this place. More...

The best sandwiches ever.. I grew up in Chicago eating Italian beef sandwiches and Steins kills it on Saturday. Takes me right home. I get mine with cheddar and stupid soaking wet but I can't help myself. They have endless amazing sandwiches with fresh meats and well aged cheeses. The ciabatta is made fresh daily and throughout the day you can smell it baking in the oven along with bacon, matzah ball soup, fresh awesome salads drenched in hunks of meat, cheese, veggies with house made dressings. The daily specials sell out often so come early and get you one of your favorite bottled beers or beverages, grab some fresh ground fresh brewed coffee, read a paper, be weird, laugh at yourself and be in heaven. I'm on my way there now for a couple of those Italian beefs. Get sour pickles, homemade potato salad, chicken salad. All of it all of it all of it all the thangggggggssss das good ya hurd? More...

To borrow a phrase, Stein's got the meats.  I met a group of friends here before attacking the boutiques on Magazine during Small Business Saturday.  This deli shop is full to the brim with tables, and items to accompany your sandwich.  When you add people to the mix it isn't quite apparent what the flow is so here is a little help.  You  order at the front but various chips and cookies and all of the drinks are along the walls.  If you want to pay all at once, gather your drinks and accompaniments first before you order.After I figured that all out, I ended up ordering a Tuscan Panini which truly was full to the brim with meat.  It was buttery and toasted without being greasy. There were plenty of local brews available (parish brewing, abita, etc.) but I had a blood orange smash instead.  Overall, quality affordable sandwiches. More...

Friends, yall already know this place has bomb sandwiches based on the other reviews so I'll skip the repetition and direct you instead to their amazing bagels! Personally, I find their bagels to be the best in the city especially because they have such a variety of smears to go along with it. For a while I was getting the bagel with lox but have recently downsized to an everything bagel with salmon cream cheese that has real bits of salmon in it. Just for completeness sake, my fav sandwich is the Italian Hoagie - the large is big enough to split with your fav pal + a bag of Zapps + your fav libation makes for a wonderful lunch!  Also, Philly fans unite and go shake the owner, Dan's hands - cool dude running a great lil deli. Parking situation kinda sucks but def not a deal break so don't sleep on Stein's! Tip: use your phone to pay the meter using one of those nifty apps if you don't ever carry cash like me. More...

This place is awesome. I try to make it here for lunch every time I'm in town for work. The place is packed both full of stuff and people. So it's a tight squeeze to sit and eat. But it's totally worth it. My coworkers switch it up and are always happy with what they get but for me, I can't get away from the Reuben on rye bread. It's the best one I've had outside of the northeast. I know I'm just gilding the lily with this review since I know everyone who walks in here leaves thrilled. But wow. It's great. Definitely make the trip and hit this place for lunch. More...

We've been long time fans of Stein's Deli, the Reuben is a classic and delicious, and we are sure to stop in at least once every trip to NOLA, which are frequent. Our fav though is the Sam, with pastrami and cole slaw instead of the Reuben's corned beef and sauerkraut. Recently we enjoyed the Dan, a great turkey BLT on whole wheat. With so many appealing choices on Magazine Street, don't be distracted by the shiny objects and overlook the real deal: Stein's Market and Deli. An afternote from a recent visit: I was in buying a sack of sandwiches for a house full of guests. Some rare spectacles slipped out of my jacket and got kicked under the potato chip stand. Realizing the loss later I called Dan Stein and asked if he would call me if they turned up, unsure where exactly I lost them. Dan looked high and low, during a busy Saturday afternoon, out in the parking lot and finally found them under the potato chip stand. Loyalty is a two-way street at Stein's Deli. More...

I recently contacted Stein's for a catering event. They really went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. Dan was great to work with. I gave them my budget, they asked me what I wanted (salad, sandwiches, dessert, etc.) and they set everything up so all I had to do was walk in and walk out with a bounty of great food. The sandwiches were quality - guests left happy and full. More...

For me, choosing a favorite Stein's sandwich is like playing favorites between my children. Okay, I don't have children. But if I did, I'd name them after Stein's sandwiches and put them all through college, because they deserved to be loved all the same as a tribute to their respectively inspired menu items. Oh, there's also the beer room. Wish I could give an extra star for that. But it works out anyway, because I'd have to dock a star for the parking situation on the decline recently. More...

It's Stein's. What am I gonna say that hasn't been said a billion times already? Come in here and know what you want. Or don't know what you want and eeny-meeny-miny-moe it, either way, your life will be changed. It's funny to me that all these other restaurants in Nola receive these fancy awards for best new this n best that, whilst Steins is looking around like, "whatever". I love that about them. No glitz or glamour, just sandwiches that'll make you want to abandon your family and camp out in front everyday just to catch a crumb from a slice of that marble rye bread. I've been in countless times, for years, and still haven't gotten anything but that Rachel on Marble Rye. I'll be damned if it doesn't overshadow every other meal I eat in between my last Rachel and the next. It's so damn good, y'all. I have a ton of homies from the northeast and they all have their favorite go-to's and I trust and want to try their recommendations but I have not a hint of FOMO about any of it. More...

I don't come for the bagels or the sandwiches or the meats. I come for the customer service. No frills, no nonsense, just good old fashioned, straight forward ordering. No ones trying to be cute by cracking jokes or forcing a smile on me. It's strictly business. Keep it up. If people complain that they want "friendlier"  staff, they can go right next door to District Donuts. Or HR block. Either works. But if that's the type of service you want, you're in the wrong spot. And you're also just wrong. More...

Found out they don't lease the parking lot anymore, but it's a public (pay) lot. Or street parking. Had a corned beef on marble rye, and also got an italian hoagie again. The corned beef itself is flavorful and tasty. Bread, mustard, lettuce and tomato....delicious!Love the Italian hoagie. Fresh meats and cheeses... great!I got a pint of potato salad too. Not my favorite. Weird pickle taste and too mustard for me.Got pickles too. Did not like. Great sandwiches! More...

Oy vey!  A real Jewish east coast deli (Philly to be exact) in NOLA!!!!  Finally!!!  Had the Rachel (pastrami Reuben) and it was very good.  Not quite NY or LA perfection, but close.  $12.99.  Will be back to check out the other sandwiches.  Quick service. Nice drink selection.  Highly recommended.Update:  tried the Sam - excellent! Chopped liver is tasty as well. More...

Two words: Old Fart. This sandwich -- which consists of thinly-sliced beef tongue, chopped liver, Swiss, coleslaw, and Russian dressed on marble rye -- is the best sandwich in the city, in my humble opinion. They have some other great sandwiches, too, but take my word for it, the Old Fart is the best. More...

Great place if you're looking for a great bagel. The bagel has never failed to impress me, but this recent trip compelled me to write a review. The owner, Dan was very kind. I ordered something I normally don't eat and I wasn't used to the taste so I didn't finish it. Because of that, Dan gave me two sweets to compensate and he didn't have to do that at all. If you're reading this, I really appreciate it man! I look forward to my next visit. More...

Brilliant! Ruben is the best in New Orleans! Atmosphere is a little cramped, but it is a little deli. One can get over it. The owner is great and he looks like Brenden Frasier stepped into a morphing device with Robert Downey Jr. This has nothing to do with things at all. EAT AT STEINS! More...

I have been living in New Orleans for a couple years now and I have been absolutely craving that Jewish-Deli style sandwich. That type of sandwich with meat piled wider than a mouth can bite between two pieces of bread. The plus on this sandwich was the bread was toasted!I have found the deli sandwich I have been craving for years in New Orleans at Stein's Market. Just an FYI as well, I made it out to the beer room while I was here and they have a great indie brewery beers here, most of which I haven't seen available in Louisiana. If you're a beer lover, I recommend Stein's as well. More...

Stein's is my favorite bagel spot in New Orleans. It's the only real New York Jewish style deli, and everything inside is on brand, with some New Orleans fusion. From stickers that say "New Orleans Oy! Such a Home," to a Simon painting that says "how can we miss you if you won't go away," to a Philly style "muphuletta," to Stein at the cash registering sighing at how long you're taking and urging you to hurry up and order, this place is awesome. Not to mention the food is amazing. I loved a classic lox on everything, but the extensive sandwich list might convince you to try something new. Also, once when I tipped well Stein gave me some free pickles. Love this place More...

Lol great sandwich joint. This pace is pretty legit and they seem to be serious beer snobs. Seating is super limited and parking sucks but it's worth the stop for the sandwiches. Not 100% of how beer is sold here but they have a amazing selection of beer. Funny part when we went out later that night we saw the owner again  at a brew pub. Keep up the great work guys. More...

I always stop in Stein's when in town for breakfast and get the egg, cheese, and tomato sandwich on a bialy and they never disappoint. I had the chance to stop by here for lunch and got the tuna salad on ciabatta with the xim(kale) salad. The salad was delicious with a lovely lemon dressing, tangy green apples, crisp radishes, and shaved brussel sprouts, that leaves me wanting more and will have me definitely ordering this consistently in the future! The Ciabatta was made in house with an airy and spongy texture that is tasty too. Their tuna salad is simple and has chunks of boiled egg which I loved. Needless to say everything that I have ever gotten here has been delicious. More...

Tried the Rachel and it was very good.  Served with 2 pickle spears...perfect for the crunch and to help with the saltiness of the sandwich.  For $14.39 though, I expected more meat or a bag of chips included.  No frills, busy deli with tables and various grocery items.  Parking can be difficult.  Expect a wait (10+ minutes to pick up food).  Look forward to trying other items and would recommend to others.

This is very cool and unique place right off Magazine Street next to the Donut Shop. It has a lot of Philadelphia inspired decor and theme, along with a tons of foods, drinks, and loads of canned and bottled beer selections that you can buy. The food was very very good. I ordered the Italian Sandwich and my wife ordered the smaller sized Philly Cheesesteak with provolone cheese, they tasted fresh and were really good, and filled us up.  This is a great local place that's a good spot to check out if you like unique sandwich shops with a variety of items.(One note, it does get cramped inside as there is little space when crowded due to the display carts and shelves) More...

This is one of the local favorite, and we were in the garden district on a tour, decided to get something to eat before that tour. This place show up on the map, but if you are not careful, you will walk right pass it. The door is kinda hidden. Once you find it, you walk in and it transport you to a New York style deli. The sandwich was really good. The meat is fresh, they had amazing roast beef. They have tons of craft beer, tons of regular drinks. Overall it was a wonderful place and it's not pricey. More...

Stein's has phenomenal sandwiches. My girlfriend brought home a sandwich one day, but it became soggy on the way home cause of condensation. Regardless, it was so good we decided to swing in and eat it fresh out the deli. Best pastrami ever.This place is by no means modern and hipster, I would call it more rustic/mature. But hey, can't judge a book by its cover cause these sandwiches are put together so well. They give you two types of pickles, one pickle is on the lighter side (which I love the flavor is super subtle), and the other is real heavy which is also great cause you can alternate pickles.Definitely returning to Stein's. They have a beer room in the back too for those who like craft beers! More...

Dan and his crew are awesome in every way.  They always treat me like a king and I'm just some dude.  The food and cold cuts are outstanding.  The beer selection out back is awesome too.  Not really sure what else I can say.  Oh yeah.  I was walking home one night from a local bar and Dan offered me a ride home just because I was tipsy.  Mensch.

Not that I haven't already found a place for bagels in New Orleans, but this New York-y deli I tried has a lot to offer. It's a tight squeeze in there, and much of what they have is not of interest to me, but there are nonetheless a variety of specialty drinks and snacks that are hard to find, in addition to the attraction I stopped in for.I ordered a variety of flavors and was quite happy with pumpernickel in addition to basics. Their whole wheat is entirely delectable and perhaps better than the plain one. They are smallish in diameter, but dense and chewy and a good serving size, and also a very nice price. Certainly, I've spent too much time in life not eating bagels. More...

Not much on atmosphere but the food was excellent. We had the "Sam" which was hot pastrami, Swiss cheese and coleslaw with Russian Dressing in rye. It was delicious. We also had the muphuletta (their spelling) and that was also really good. Saw other people with various sandwiches as well as bagels with cream cheese and Lox. All looked great. More...

We ordered the "Rachel".  It comes on rye bread with pastrami, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and topped off with Russian dressing. We had them switch out the Swiss cheese for provolone, and you have your choice of 3 rye breads: seeded, no seeds, or marbled rye. We chose the no seed rye. Then we asked to have the bread toasted extra crispy and the meat cooked crispy. Right away the man taking my order was annoyed...he said "oh, you're from...one day Blake Lively said she order her food from us that way and now everyone from there wants it that way"!!! He was sooooo annoyed, but oh well, I wanted to try what I wanted to try. When I say that this was THE best sandwich I've EVER eaten...I'm not exaggerating! The bread was toasted wonderfully, the meat was crispy yet moist and very, VERY tasty, and the provolone cheese was ooey and gooey...just perfect! I don't need a friendly greeting when I'm buying lunch, I need outstanding food, and this sandwich hits the spot! More...

What more can you say about this place that hasn't been said already? Sam sandwich is ridiculously good, pickles are crunchy and flavorful, plenty of options to choose from!

I'm sure much has been written on The Sam. I'll try now to add to the acculumated knowledge of this legendary sandwich: So much hype, and I can only add that I have never tasted a better sandwich anywhere ever in my whole entire sandwich eating life (and I freakin' LOVE sandwiches and eat them every chance I get). Take your first bite of this unreal sandwich and your face will light up like a five year old on Christmas morning unwrapping every toy you ever desired (mine did). Then take another bite and it will happen again! Piping hot pastrami, perfectly seasoned and bursting with juicy goodness, nestled in ice cold creamy perfect coleslaw on seeded rye toast.There just is not a better thing you could possibly eat. I'm sure of it.Also everything else I ate there was delicious, the people are nice and the vibe is super fun.Bonus: I stood in line with a dude wearing a live parrot on his shoulder. (I love New Orleans!!!)They derserve all of the credit they can get in more.  Do not hesistate to go here at once. More...

I recently moved to New Orleans from Pennsylvania and have been desperately searching for a good bagel. I ordered a sesame bagel and was very impressed. It tastes just like the delicious ones I grew up eating. I had a Reuben but swapped the Swiss cheese for provolone and it was perfect. Also I was pleased with how quickly the food was prepared. They don't mess around here! I would like to try some items in the market area next time. The prices seemed a little steep but I guess it's fair since they're gourmet products. More...

New Orleans has great sandwich shops. Turkey and the Wolf is the one that you probably have heard the most about...and it's great. But, if you want a more casual, less crowded spot, Stein's is your place. I got the Sam. It was hot and salty and just pure goodness. I grabbed a drink from the market and some Zapps. I sat at a communal table. Everyone who took my order and made my sandwich and shared my table was nice and cool and interesting. More...

Good bagels,  great sandwiches and probably the best beer spot in NoLa.  The beer storeroom is in the back, and if you wander in at the right time the owner might even let you peruse the secret stash.

I went to Stein's post-night out in NOLA searching for something to satisfy my hunger but not throw me into a feeding frenzy. The friend who met us suggested the Rachel "because it's the only sandwich that matters" at Steins. So I went with that, a bowl of Matzo Ball soup (because I'd never had it and have always wondered) and some fresh squeezed orange juice. Luckily the rest of the meal was better than the orange juice because it was awful, to put it frankly. It was more of an orange drank than OJ. The Rachel was delicious and everything I'd expect from a Jewish deli, juicy pastrami with tangy Russian dressing and crunchy sauerkraut and gooey melty cheese. Heating up the other half that night and crunching up that seeded rye was even better. The matzo ball soup was warm and soothing - the soft and pillowy matzo ball is what I want instead of noodles in my soup from now on. Seasoning was mild which is exactly what's needed after a night filled with chargrilled oysters, cake balls, and roasted garlic fries. Now for the real star of my visit, the condiment that I cannot stop thinking about, that I really want to duplicate  so I can eat daily. The honey nut cream cheese. Good lord. It's like butter and cream cheese had a baby and then named her honey and sprinkled her with cinnamon and sugar. Jesus was this shit delicious. I would eat bagels daily if I could have this cream cheese stocked in my frig in a never ending supply. Since I didn't get to go to their epic beer room on this visit, I'll definitely be back for that and some bagels and lox, with a vat of honey nut cream cheese to go. More...

Definitively overpriced but good execution of a traditional reuben. I ordered the classic Stein's Reuben. The bread is thin and acceptable robust for this savoury sandwich. I wouldn't say it made much of an impression on me. The filling of the sandwich is well-balanced in flavor and texture. The classic combination of pastrami, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing, and swiss all presented in a tasty and pleasant ratio. All the ingredients tasted fresh and flavorful. The beef, though well-executed into flaky and moist layers, could have been fattier. This is a preference. But I found the lack of fat in the beef to miss a bit of an opportunity to engage in a deeper and more unctuous mouthfeel. More...

Summing up the other reviewers: the food is fantastic (we had the Fernando and beef tongue with coleslaw), the employees are largely rude. From the guy too busy texting to look up and take our order to the scowl of the guy calling out our order (from whom I had the impression that a smile and "thank you" from me would have been offensive). Anyway- don't be too put off by it; come for the food. More...

Tried this deli after some coworkers of ours had eaten here. We ordered the Sam and hot Corned Beef Special on marbled rye, and matzah ball soup on the side. The sandwiches were delicious!

I know I live in New Orleans and there is a boiling pot of different foods to have, but this is my favorite restaurant in the whole city. Whenever I try a different sandwich shop, I feel weird. Nothing can top Dan Stein's creations. My usual order is a Rachel on seeded rye, however I have tried basically the whole menu and never had a bad sandwich. Also, the bagels are super cheap and some of the best in the city. Some may say that Dan has a "bad attitude" or claim that the staff is "rude," but it all adds to the experience. Nothing will ever turn me away from this glorious deli that forever changed my life (I'm not being dramatic). More...

Truly a reason for my continued existence. Their bagels are by far the best in New Orleans, and Dan Stein is a legend. He is archetypical grumpy deli owner, and I appreciate him in my bones.

I heard good things about Stein's over the past couple months. I finally had the chance to try it today. My celebrity crush Blake Lively favors the Rachel extra crispy, so I ordered it! The caraway seeded sandwich comes topped with pastrami, sauerkraut, Swiss, Russian dressing and two types of halved pickles. The first bite was as good as the last. This sandwich is not like any other sandwich. Every bite you take, a piece of the generous portion of pastrami falls into your plastic basket. After my experience with Stein's. I can't say, "I could've made this at home."Get you some. Parking on the side. I had a quad espresso in the little corner of the deli (Cherrys espresso bar) while waiting, hence the long review.

My husband and I come here almost daily and we are always made to feel welcome. The owner, Dan, always remembers our order and the cashier remembers our names and is cool. It gets annoyingly busy at lunch, so if you're in a rush maybe try to go earlier. The prices are great, the food is really damn good. The beer room is a great addition and it's fun to look in there and pick up some local beer (or any kind, really). Cherry coffee has a bar set up in the front and they serve the BEST coffee (until 1pm). More...

It seems they are always in pissy mood here (the employees)- but I deal with it because it's my favorite place to get a either salmon cream cheese bagel or a salmon-flavored cream cheese bagel.  The latter is pretty cheap, and it's not just "flavored"... they actually put a good helping of chopped salmon into that.  It's like, my favorite thing to get at any time.  With capers . They've got a great menu, and the atmosphere is subjective.  I dig it. It's worth the lines and attitudes. More...

Simple and amazing! Steins is an awesome old school deli. When you walk in you're in a grocery store with a couple tables and a huge chalkboard menu with all their unique sandwiches. My favorite is the Robert which is prosciutto, tomatoes, balsamic and white mozzarella. I've also tried the Fernando which is the same sandwich except no tomatoes, and instead of balsamic it has pesto. Their sandwiches are so simple but really don't need anything else! They put LOTS of meat and give you a little wrapped pickle and that's it. I could eat here every day. More...

Best deli in town. I'd marry their sandwiches if I could. All the meats, cheeses, and breads they use are high quality. Bagels under $2, coffee stand until 1pm. I have a habit of going here at least once a week because if I even think about a Stein sandwich my mouth waters. Monday is the saddest day of the week because Stein's is closed and it's usually when the sandwich craving is at its maximum. The owner and most the employees will be rude in response to anything they find to be a dumb question or irritating action--it's part of the schtick and the charm, like being in the northeast. Don't take it personally. Don't order a po-boy or a muffaletta like a tourist. Call ahead if you can get through because it's always packed and there's always a wait. And it's always worth the wait. Comes with a pickle. More...

I love Stein's. It's a no frills, no fuss kind of place, and is just what you need when you're craving a sandwich. Being from Pittsburgh, sandwiches are a major food group, and Stein's (although a Philadelphia establishment) has it down to a science.Hungry? Get the reuben. Feelin' healthy? Try the vegetarian.Hungover? Get a bagel sandwich. Super hungover? Get the matzah ball soup and replenish those salts. This is a true Pennsylvania establishment. The people aren't friendly, and the place isn't all that clean, but it's a true gem.On top of the awesome sandwiches, they have a variety of artisanal products including pastas,  bitters, and the not-so-artisinal Heinz Ketchup potato chips (YUM).And, I must not forget to mention the amazing beer selection they have out back. I found a bottle from one of my favorite craft breweries in NY. This is a weekly stop for me, and it should be for you too. More...

My God, I have never had such an AMAZING sandwich! Thank you, Stein's Deli Decided to grab lunch here while visiting and walking around the Garden District- not disappointed at all! We walked 12 blocks out of our way for this place and I would do it over and over again, lol. Location: This deli is conveniently located right on the popular Magazine St, so it's very easy to get to either by trolley, foot, or Uber. Also, I like how there's a good amount of spots around there where you can grab a drink or dessert afterwards. Menu:Their menu is HUGE! You could probably come here every week and never get bored since there's so many options. Stein's offers all types of sandwiches, hoagies, fresh bread, sandwich meats and cheeses, salads, soups, and desserts... come here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Food:Originally, we were going to order the Muphuletta BUT the owner talked us out of it since he said there are wayyyyy better sandwiches to order and other sandwiches that this deli in particular is known for.. We took his advice and ordered two different sandwiches and split them. 1) The Italian Hoagie ($10.99 for a large)2) The Reuben ($12.99 one size only)Oh my God... I can't describe how freaking delicious and FRESH these damn sandwiches were... holy crap is all I can say lol. These guys know what they're doing and I'll never look at a regular sandwich the same way lol. More...

Not many places in the city like Stein's. Maybe it's not a Carnegie or Katz's but still quite enjoyable Pastrami and Corned Beef sandwiches.  Hey it's great that this place exists and had plenty of sundries and deli items for sale you may not easily find in the big supermarket.  Definitely an old school NYC vibe here - don't expect flash or fancy - and the prices are reasonable.  They have dry Italian rice and pastas for sale and deli mustards among others things.  Definitely recommend this place for a visit!

A classic Jewish deli, Stein's uses fresh meats, cheeses, and veggies to build mile-high sammiches to satisfy any rumbly tummy. Their Classic and Specialty menus are jam packed with options for all, but if you are super uber picky, you can build your own from a list of NINE different breads- within that list, there are three Rye choices, and a few house-made breads! Enjoy a big win with any of the fifteen meat options, from classic turkey to beef tongue, and seven cheeses! No joke!! The sides are also to die for, you absolutely cannot go wrong! It has been too warm of days for me to try the Matzah ball soup, but I cannot wait to give it a go!I also tend to make it here when my tank is on E, and while I'm sure many of the brekkie options are filling enough, I have only opted for lunch munches so far. The staff is fun, friendly, and quick; however, the wait is a bit daunting because there are almost always 1.6 million people being served at a time. Worth the wait. I promise. Stein's also sells a vast selection of cold drinks and beer, although I am unsure if you're allowed to drink alcohol in the deli or not. I gotta say, Stein's is on the very short list of my favorites of fave's! More...

Amazing deli for sandwiches or bagels. Too many choices but you can't go wrong with any of them. Egg salad was some of the best I've had and the meat sammys are amazing! Plus impressive selection of natural sodas, kombucha, and more. Can't wait to go back and try another sandwich! More...

Stein's is, hands down, the best deli in the city. It's so good that I can't even venture to other establishments around the Magazine and Jackson intersection simply because of their presence. The Fernando has prevented me from all but one other sandwich. The combination of prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and pesto will make you forget that you're just another slave to the capitalist dogma and may give you new meaning in life. Their beer selection is pretty dope as well. Just make sure you've decided on what you want before hopping in line. Don't make them wait. Oh yea, pay cash and take a piece of candy. More...

A favorite for sandwiches but equally as great for wines and imported dry goods like pastas and oils that are hard to find elsewhere. Steins is also a go to for high quality cheese and meat selection. Call ahead to avoid the lines. More...

I'm an old Jewish man from New Jersey. Well, not that old that I have a daughter at Tulane and am able to navigate Postmates. My daughter is under the weather and needs some Matzoh Ball soup. Delivered by Postmates in less than an hour, still hot; delicious (not as good as mine, but that's not a manageable expectation), and the VERY kind souls @ Stein's even added the "get well" note that I requested. If there was a 6 Star review, I'd give Stein's a 10. Thanks, Fellahs. Good job representing. Jersey respects you. More...

Oh what a wonderful way to end my N.O. trip. Before I got back on the road to head back home, I had to make sure I took care of my taste buds and stop at one more delicious food spot. Again, shoutout to my Yelp family for giving credit to where it's due. Stein's Market and Deli was phenomenal. Lawd, that Stoltzfus (Scrambled Egg, Corned Beef or Pastrami with Swiss and Spicy Brown Mustard on Choice of Bread) was life changing. I orded mine with corned beef on an everything bagel. My intentions were to split it in half with my mom, but see what had happened was.... lol. This damn bagel sandwich didn't even make it to the major freeway before getting inside of my stomach. This place is definitely a favorite amongst alot of locals seeing how long the line was, but no need to worry because they move pretty quickly. Also, the interior is very small and cluttered, so it can feel a little tight if you're looking to dine in. Please add this place to your must try list on your next visit to New Orleans, you will not be disappointed. More...

By far my favorite and most "close to home" deli! I'm a born and raised Jersey girl who loves her carbs and I must say the bagels here can't get any better! They are soft and full. Usually you go to a bagel shop and they are flat and bland, well this is the complete opposite.The atmosphere is New Yorkish as well.Sweet Treat... black and a white cookie is a must if you like cookies and cake oh and chocolate! These are made in NY.If you get cream cheese and don't like bagels that have a pound of cream cheese then tell them "light"'on the cream cheese because otherwise it's pretty messy but in my opinion delicious.I definitely recommend it for a breakfast spot. When I go back for lunch I will update my review on how their sandwiches are.Oh and they have Taylor Ham!!! If you are from the North then you'll be happy to find a deli that has that. More...

Mmmm. Tasty Rueben (I substituted turkey for the corned beef). The sandwich was huge and packed with meat. A great local stop for a good sandwich with high quality meats. This place is truly "New Orleans" a bit chaotic, random, and confusing, but that makes it great. If you are looking for the beer room, which is an amazing spot to find some beers that can't be found elsewhere in the city, walk all the way through the restaurant out the back door and it's to your right. It seems like you shouldn't be walking out there but it's cool! You'll be pleasantly surprised by what you find! More...

They have some interesting items for sale as well, like pastas, oil & vinegar, coffee, weird candy I haven't seen in years, and more. Can't wait to come back! More...

Quick and delicious breakfast here this morning! I ordered a basic egg and cheese on a garlic bagel. The sandwich was huge and filling. The garlic bagel is so flavorful and full of minced garlic on top. It's a lot of garlic, which is not a problem for me, but heads up if you only want a mild flavor. My husband got a basic everything bagel with cream cheese and said it was good. They only have drip coffee to order at the counter, but there's a separate barista in the restaurant who can make espresso drinks. Everyone was super friendly! More...

I just want to say this is what service is supposed to be like. Mike at the deli was extremely nice, professional and knew his deli meats. I had asked for Stein to put together an appetizer plate for a New Years party that I was attending on short notice and Mike and the staff nailed it. I can't wait to come back here. Thanks for all the help and tasty food. We def brought in the new year right. More...

We actually went here to go to the donut shop(next door) I am so glad we didn't! Be patient, they are a busy location. It is well worth the wait, I had Ode to Nuske, so good!

Hungry at 3pm on a Thursday: Stein's Deli! No line, hardly any wait for fresh made sandwiches, and very affordable. The $10.99 price tag most definitely leaves you stuffed & because I couldn't eat both sides, I at least ate the meat & cheese in mine because I couldn't waste something so delicious. It's super fresh! My boyfriend got the hot pastrami sandwich and loved it. We've mistakenly got it somewhere else around here & it was nothing like this. Get the pastrami HERE unless you're in New York. Not a fancy place at all, so if you're dressed down like we were, stop on in. More...

Absolutely delicious. I had the Rachel for lunch and I can't wait to go back and have it again.  The pastrami was piping hot and melt in your mouth good. A friend and I went for lunch during the work week and there was a line and a small crowd.  We didn't wait in line for more than 10 minutes and our food came quickly. We found ourselves a table and chowed down. More...

My favorite place in NOLA ate there 5 times in two weeks. Great beer selection. Great music. Everything they make is insane. My favorite is the Italian hoagie. Unless you go on Philly cheesesteak day then get that. The dudes that work there are really cool and if they're not busy they'll have a conversation with you. The pastrami is excellent. They make their own gardinera that you can buy on its own. I'd give more stars if I could. I'd work there for free sandwiches no lie. Go eat there More...

Have you ever wanted to kill yourself because you didn't discover a place until after you had moved away from the city it's located in? Yeah, well, let me tell you...New Orleanians, don't sleep on Stein's. Holy sh*t. It's easy to get sucked into the District Donuts hype, what with the line and all, and don't get me wrong, I LOVE me some District, but the entire time I lived in Nola, I never once suspected the magic and beauty lurking next door at Stein's. I was there a couple weekends ago on a family trip and the line at District was just too long. So we went next door, thinking "maybe we can get a decent bagel here." WHAT. OMG the bagels. OMG the coffee (Cherry Coffee actually, but it's inside Stein's). I'm a rabid fan of the NY style bagel with lox, cream cheese, red onion & capers, and this was the best I've ever had. So big I could only eat half, but I was hitting the road back to Houston (sad face) immediately after and the second half made a perfect road trip snack. Needless to say, I'll be going back to Stein's every time I go back to Nola from here on out. More...

They had me at "specialty meats and cheeses". Steins is an authentic Jewish-Italian deli & market in the Lower Garden District. It's the perfect amount of "dive". Plenty of deli choices, great service with an attitude. If you're easy going and appreciate a seriously legit sandwich, you'll love it - period. Some say Steins rivals some of NYC's favs. I agree. Impressive beer selection. Bring a bag and take it home though. No drinking on premise. Did I mention the speciality meats and cheeses? So good! Love NOLA. More...

Cute little deli right off of Market St in New Orleans. I had been told that their schtick is being grumpy pants but I found all the workers pleasant. It was nice and cold, which was a grateful change from the humid near 90 degrees waiting outside. If you're accustomed to the weather, however, there are tables outside to accommodate. I had the minestrone soup and hippie panini. I don't see that on their online menu but it was very similar to the caprese just warm and on panini bread with red peppers. The soup was perfect! I love a good vegetable soup! The veggies were al dente and the broth had a nice tomato and spice flavor that happily lingered on your tongue. I had to add a bit of salt but I have recently discovered I enjoy the saltier flavors. My sandwich was even better than the soup. Each night just the right amount of peppers, bread, cheese, and balsamic ratio. When I am very happy I wiggle and this sandwich made me wiggle. I wanted to eat the whole thing but I gave half to Adams dad...reluctantly. Haha. Adam had the Robért. I didn't get a taste of it but he assured me it was delicious. It was his idea to eat at Stein's as he did when he lived here. Their menu apparently does not disappoint. I hope to come back someday. In addition to the plethora of fresh sandwiches they offer they also have breakfast, salads, soups, deserts and old fashioned soda pops. Eat here! Nom nom nom! More...

Stein's Market is a great place to enjoy breakfast, lunch, or pop in for a few drinks to go!A small group of us stopped in for breakfast and a place to work for a few hours after arriving at the airport. We all ordered different breakfast sandwiches and they were all delicious. Some other reviews have described the bagels as close to being NYC bagels as you can get. They were good, just not NYC bagels.While there, the location provided wifi and a water dispenser so that we could hydrate before the weekend started.The staff was very nice and quickly created our orders.The tables were a little close to each other and the register, but it makes for a cozy atmosphere. You can also sit outside on picnic benches, which is perfect for a nice day!We were there a few hours and the place never stopped being busy for a moment. This is clearly an awesome place and one that I will definitely stop in if ever back in NOLA! More...

It's cramped and you might have to sit next to a perfect stranger!  I love that aspect.Quality ingredients, overstuffed sammiches, pickles on the side and wonderful tattooed men to take your order.  I find myself often craving Stein's.  I can eat 1/2 a sandwich and save the other 1/2 for dinner or lunch the next day.  Oh, you were craving that special bagel and cream cheese from your home back in the Northeast, dey got dat!  They are the truest deli the NO has.  They have canned and bottled drinks for days in one of their many coolers.  Thanks for always making perfect sandwiches that keep me coming back for more.  I appreciate that.  As a sidenote, parking can be a royal *****.  They have a parking lot but often it is not navigable with all the Magazine St. ebb and flow.  I'll take a side street/ parallel park job over the front of store chaos any day.

I was sooooooo happy to find this place. Late afternoon and was really trying hard to find something gluten free within walking distance. These guys were just about to close and they made me a phenomenal made to order gluten free sandwich that was really high quality and they didn't say anything about the fact that I ran through the door just as they were about to close. Thank you Dan and the rest of the staff - really appreciated the quality of food and service. More...

In the heart of the Garden District, this industrial specialty market is a CANNOT MISS. We came for the unbeatable selection of craft beer in "the back" and always stay for food. The bagels are incredible. I personally always get an everything bagel with jalepeno cream cheese and lox while my husband keeps it simple- plain with plain. Our kids now request Steins over Café Du Monde. Skip the tourist traps and come get amazing food with super cool ambiance. Don't forget to order a fresh squeezed OJ! There are always really cool people in there to talk to and the staff are very accommodating. "Welcome to Steins. What the fuck do you want?" More...

Really awesome little deli with funky atmosphere and very "local" feel.Insanely amazing beer selections (note: they are not a bar, so you can't drink them there... buy them, take 'em home and enjoy). I didn't partake in any of their mouthwatering sandwiches, but they all looked wonderful.I loved the casual, weird & fun feel of the place, including the peeps that works there - it's hard to explain but... they aren't overly polite/ friendly/ nice to you, nor uninterested/ cold/ business like/ pretentious. I feel they are rather "real people". And I like that. A lot.Go to Steins, I hope you like them as much as I did. More...

Sandwiches are always full of flavor and the house made pickles pack a puckering punch. I recommend the traditional Ruben or my fave the "Rachel."  They are big and can be shared or eaten in two sittings unless your super hungry!My only drawback is the sandwiches can get messy when they are really busy, but the delicious taste is never lacking.Fast service & family seating makes this a great place to eat or you can order to go!  There is also a small store around the edges of the deli where you can buy bitters, oils, bagel chips, pretzels and other goodies!

The sandwich I ordered had turkey avacado, bacon, and cucumber on it and was quite yummy. My friend had two of the other sandwiches, one of which was some type of panini that she liked a lot. Everything on the menu sounded good, will have to go back again to try more of the options! More...

The Fancy Schmancy Cuban is a favorite but you can't go wrong.  This place is somewhat disorganized and comes with quite a bit of shtick which definitely adds to the ambiance.  The beer selection is mythical , and the service is great.  Cherry Coffee up front on the left is outstanding as well.  A New York style Jewish deli simmered in the heat and humidity of New Orleans- Love everything about it More...

I love bagels. I'm originally from the northeast where people would give their right arms for a delicious bagel, pizza, or (in my town) pierogies. I was hesitant to try a southern bagel shop at first but when our previous lunch plans fell through, we gave it a shot. The atmosphere of Stein's is super laid back. Big communal tables, the menu written on the wall...things that I like to see in a deli-type atmosphere. I ordered an everything bagel (my absolute fave) and chive cream cheese. It was all I could've asked for in that moment. So good. The boyfriend got The Dan sandwich and also thoroughly enjoyed. I will definitely return when my bagel cravings return. I'm also looking forward to trying their sandwiches..all of which sounded yummy. More...

Stein's has the best bagels in New Orleans, easily. Not to mention, their sandwiches will change your life. The Stoltfus and the Fernando happen to be some of the tastiest morsels I have ever put in my mouth, and I crave them deeply on the regular. The establishment itself has a very nice atmosphere, with some cool art as well as some tongue in cheek art. There is a wide selection of deli products, drinks, candy, and (my favorite!) craft beer. It is always crowded, and usually hard to find a place to sit. Now, some might say the service is extremely brisk, granted it is, but it is also so fast and efficient. Although they may be slightly off putting and harsh, the guys working behind the counter are actually really nice and even sold my girlfriend and I some coveted schmaltz when we made latkes for Hanukkah.

As much as I love po boys, if there's one sandwich that's near and dear to my heart it is a classic Reuben.  There's just something about that classic combo of melted cheese, Russian dressing, and corned beef/pastrami that can't be beat.  So I found myself researching good Reuben shops in New Orleans and Stein's Market and Deli was pretty much at the top of everyone's list.I'll get right to the chase - I went and tried the Rachel (which is a variant of the classic Reuben, subbing corned beef for pastrami), and it was absolutely delicious.  The pastrami was probably the most well-seasoned, tender, and flavorful meat I've ever had in any Reuben, anywhere.  The Russian dressing, cheese, and bread were all pretty standard as far as Reubens go, but their main purpose was to complement the incredibly flavorful pastrami.  In terms of overall quality of ingredients, I'd say the Reuben at Stein's is definitely one of, if not THE, best in New Orleans, and would stack up favorably to any deli in NYC as well.In terms of price/quantity ratio, I feel like Stein's is on the expensive side - I paid $15 for my sandwich and although it was incredibly high quality, the sandwich was a bit on the small side.  In comparison, Welty's in the CBD serves a Reuben that's cheaper, probably 1.5x bigger, and only marginally lower in taste/quality than Stein's.OVERALL: 4/5.  Fantastic deli that serves up some of the best Reubens and deli sandwiches in New Orleans.  If you want a break from all the po boys, come here!

What a great sandwich joint on Magazine.  It's got great deli appeal and great sandwiches too.  I ate the roast beef spec today.  Loaded with tasty roast beef, coleslaw, Swiss cheese, and a splash of Russian dressing.  It is a lot of beef on a reasonable sandwich.  Enjoy. More...

Stein's is my favorite place to go on Saturdays. They have amazing bagels, good coffee, and their Chicago Italian Beef sandwiches are the best. The service is good (not friendly, but good). They know their stuff over there! Not to be forgotten are their specialty cream cheeses. My personal favorites are their veggie cream cheese and their honey nut. I've had their beef tongue sandwich (which if you've never tried beef tongue before, try it here) and chopped liver (also, something else I had never tried until going to Stein's -also very good). I highly recommend this place! Great sandwiches, bagels, and specialty items! More...

In a city full of po'boys, Steins has your sandwich cravings covered.  Bless the cold cut and bread variety.  Their collection of sandwiches are exactly what an east coast transplant wants and needs in their life.  Just the thought of the Foxy sandwich (roast beef, cheddar and avocado) makes me want to drop everything, get in my car and go devour one right now. I could say the same for the Italian sub as well. Actually you need to drop everything and go there right now, because that what I'm about to do and maybe I'll see you there. If you're a vegetarian it's ok they cater to you as well. More...

Stein's rocks. The bagels are great. I love the bagel cream cheese red onion and lox sandwich. Also, the Dan (honey turkey, bacon, swiss, lettuce, tomato with mustard and mayo) is AMAZING. Any of their sandwiches are good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner because they are so hearty.I do have to say though, the service isn't the nicest and tends to be a little slow because of the long lines (especially on weekends), but as long as you go in there knowing that you won't be treated like a king, this place is great.

Stein's is the bain of my existence.  I moved nearby two years ago and every time I try to be healthy it mockingly calls to me and says no - you should have an overstuffed delicious deli sandwich instead of that bowl of romaine lettuce.  I have tried to cut down but I can't cut it out entirely.  My favorites are the the toungle (special or old fart), the rachael, the roast beef, and the bagel with lox if I'm so inclined.  The beer selection is absurd and there is an entire room out back if the coolers are not enough for you.  The prices are a little high for sandwiches but the quality makes it easily worth it for me.  Also of note - Stein's has the endorsement of my mother, a New York jew and by natural extension - an official deli critic.

Solid all around deli. For being so popular, they were fairly fast and the wait was well worth the reward. Food covers all your East coast deli needs in one place and doesn't seem to falter on any of the standbys. Don't expect anything fancy, actually, expect a punk-rock deli that makes amazing staples. Bring an appetite for Reubens, corned beef, bagels and lox, etc. and you'll be happy. More...

I didn't know what to expect but I now have a favorite spot to visit. When we first walked through the door the place was packed! Just walking to the register we had to squeeze through the crowd with plenty of excuse me's and body turns. But the cashier was very patient and polite when taking our order. My wife got the corned beef on marble bread and a grilled cheese for my son which were both delicious. We eventually got a spot at a table to wait for our food. Now the tables are not really private so we ended up eating lunch with a nice lady and her boyfriend. If she wasn't so friendly it would have been so awkward eating that close to a complete stranger. But we had a nice lunch filled with conversation and laughter. The overall mood of the place was warm and inviting and the food was excellent. I would definitely recommend you to try it and I will be back for sure. More...

Dan Stein is king! You can't really go wrong here. My top picks: Everything Bagel with egg, bacon, and American cheese; Bagel with lox and all the fixings; or the Foxy (I sub sourdough bread, but the rye is great too). Any of the roast beef or pastrami sandwiches are killer. Call ahead during busy times including lunch and weekends when school is in session. More...

Our MUST STOP place whenever we visit New Orleans. Get the Rachel. You can't go wrong. I got introduced to Stein's by my boyfriend and I'm so glad he did. There's usually always a line, so get there early. The quality of the meat and bread are superb. Way better than anywhere I've tasted. To be honest, I haven't tried anything else but the Rachel (hot pastrami on rye bread). I'm not inclined to try anything else because it's just that good. I have noticed that their prices have risen, the quantity of meat has lessen but the quality has stayed the same. That's fine with me to keep coming back. More...

Growing up in NYC, we are totally spoiled with deli sandwiches. We like em a certain way on a certain bread with certain ratios.This place nails it. I don't even mean to compare to NY because there's no comparison. This place is straightforward.The guys are great. They're funny. They're fast. They don't take shit.It's a straightforward spot. I'm a reuben psychopath and they do a really good job.Couple outdoor seats. Minimal indoor seating. Casual, grab & go. They treat me so great in here. More...

Overall I love this place, its sandwiches and grumpy face owner Dan ;-). Last night my friends and I attended the Christmas Beer Class which was great! For $25 per person we got to try 12 different beers plus a very generous charcuterie and cheese plate. The class was packed and everyone at our table was outgoing and friendly (even before the beer). Dylan Lintern of NOLA Brewing Co. did a great job leading the class and pointing out the qualities of the beers. Classes are held through the year and we will definitely be back. More...

This place is amazing. It was packed when we went in, but we still didn't even have to wait very long for our sandwiches - which were completely delicious. Also, they were playing hip hop the whole time and that's awesome. If you play MF DOOM over the speakers, you're okay with me. A+++ More...

This place is as popular as it always is for a reason. The quality of food/meat is extraordinary, and the options make it nearly impossible to make a decision. You truly can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches, but I keep coming back for the Rueben or Rachel (cornbeef vs pastrami). It makes for a bit of a pricier sandwich, as far as New Orleans prices go, but I typically make it into two meals, as is it often so stuffed with deliciousness that I can hardly finish it in one sitting. Funky vibe--don't forget about the beers in the back! More...

I love this little deli! Went to the District thinking a coffee shop would have bagels but they didn't so I walked next door to Stein's and so glad I did. It's got a great NY feel. The bagels are the closest to NY style that I've had in town and the veggie cream cheese was delicious and homemade. The Italian hoagie was also delicious. My new favorite spot. More...

Coming from philadelphia, I appreciate how quickly this place takes orders and makes the food. These guys work hard, and the food is delicious, which is why it's packed on weekends. They also pack your order with food. No skimping. I am a devoted follower of the bacon, egg, and cheese. It really fills you up at an incredibly affordable price. Can't be beat! More...

Yum! The panini de hippie is delicious! This is one of the vegetarian items (I'm not even vegetarian and it was amazing). It's a panini with tomatoes, mozzarella and pesto. It was $7.99 and definitely a filling lunch. The food was good but the atmosphere is eh. Steins is in a great location, but the seating is strange (about three tables and hardly any seating) and you can't drink the beer you buy there in the store..... (Keep in mind this is New Orleans). Overall I gave Steins a 4 because their food was delicious, but the atmosphere left something to be desired. More...

Stein's is the king of deli's in New Orleans. From the great quality meat and cheese, to the always fresh bread and wonderful drink selections, they sell beer too, and to the great service, Dan and his crew always put together a great lunch or breakfast or early dinner.Best place in town for a Reuben. Anywhere else and its like going to New Jersey for a poboy.Do yourself a favor, go get a Reuben today!! More...

Best Ruben sandwich I've ever had...better that those I have eaten in NYC. Not as much meat but amazing flavor. I keep planning to try something else but I keep going back to the old fav. Busy most of the day and can be loud also takes awhile to get your food once ordered so consider calling ahead More...

New Yorker by birth so I know delis, like my whole life already. Reuben and all the variations are delish. Gotta have cream soda with it sometimes and boom - they got choices. The bacon, egg and cheese is a great way to start the day too. I'm not sure about the coffee pop up counter, never tried. Atmosphere is traditional deli plus lots of local events and posters give the place local flavor. It's crowded and busy (lots of times) so be ready to order when you get to the counter, be patient while waiting. Staring at staff won't make your food arrive quicker. Not your warm and fuzzy staff - clearly working hard though. More...

Stein's is the real deal.  I grew up in Noo Yawk and lived in Philly for three years, so I know from a good Jewish deli.  There ain't no other place like this anywhere near New Orleans. The bagels are the shizznit, because they are actual bagels rather than round bread with a hole in it, and are made The Right Way with real Noo Yawk bagel dough (I think it arrives in a checker cab direct from the Upper West Side).Li'l ol' Stein's tip: call ahead and order a dozen.  Otherwise, they'll probably be fresh out of what you want by the time you arrive because I already ate it.  They'll make your order fresh for you. Yeah, you'll thank me.Also, too, they're mean, but in a good way.  Whereas, elsewhere in New Orleans, the signs read "Be Nice Or Leave," the sign at Stein's says "Be Nice AND Leave" because, as the commercial says, 'and' is better than 'or.'  I like the schtick - makes me miss the Soup Nazi a little less.My mother, who grew up in Pennsylvania Dutch country, taught me to love Lebanon Balogna.  Stein's has it.  I don't think anyone else south of Wilmington does.  You should try it.  You'll probably hate it.  Also, too, other meats 'n' cheeses.If you're new to Stein's, you're not just going for the bagels, the awesome salmon or chive cream cheese, the legit deli sandwiches, the cheeses 'n' meats, and the opportunity to be glared at; you're also going for the BEER.  Seriously - go out to the back room (yeah, OUT - you have to leave out the back door of the place and go into another room on the other side of the alley) and check out the ever-changing massive selection of specialty beers.  I just bought 16 different kinds of pumpkin beers and am working my way through the selection to see what's best.  I'll let you know which was the best after Halloween.Oh - sometimes there's a bit of a wait.  This is because Stein's is awesome and a lot of people have noticed.

Had the vegetarian panini. It was delicious, and my friend's Reuben was awesome as well. 5 stars on food alone. So hip!Edit; went back the next day because my husband wanted to check out their beer room. I had the "Sam," a hot pastrami on rye with cheese, cole slaw and Russian dressing. It is the best sandwich I have ever consumed. More...

The sandwiches we got were both really good. There was a long line and the place was pretty crowded. It took about 15 min to get a sandwich but we did arrive during peak lunch hours. Would've been nicer if we could have snatched a seat outside but no luck :( the woman selling coffee on the side of the shop was really nice! I recommend going at least once to try the sandwiches. The ambience is very fun despite it being crowded. More...

The only genuine Jewish deli I know of in New Orleans and therefore a total winner in my book. And by book I mean mouth. There are a few options for veggie sandwiches, which are consistently tasty, and my omnivorous friends assure me the meat options are good as well. Plus, you get two pickles with every sandwich - TWO PICKLES, guys! This is big news.I don't know anyone who doesn't love this place. Last time I was there, the mayor stopped in for a to-go order. He did totally cut in line, but this was when all that house arrest drama was going down, so I guess he was in a hurry.Oh, and don't forget that in the time it takes for your sandwich to be made, you can pop next door to District Donuts and get some dessert. Just sayin'. More...

This place is delish. I usually get the Reuben or the Meatball Sub.  The guys behind the counter who make the sandwiches are hard working. This place gets busy with lines almost out the door -- they don't miss a beat. The owner is usually there working hard also. He is clearly very hands-on. They have a good selection of beer also. My only complaint is that the prices are steep. This is why I give 4 instead of 5 stars. More...

This is a real gem. They've got excellent bagels and sandwiches, plus a few practical grocery items (beer!) and deli meats in bulk. Watch out, they get busy on weekends so phone in ahead if you are busy.The food is incredible, and even when the line is long, the service is efficient. The menu is a little packed, and on a board behind the counter, so scrutinize it carefully, there are a lot of good choices there!If you like smoked salmon, go ahead and order it by the pound, it is well worth it.There is a little coffee counter separate from the deli in front which makes as good a cup as you can get most places in New Orleans (a city with very good coffee, mind you).

Honestly, this place is amazing. The grumpy bearded sandwich makers to the guy that's alway sleeping and flipping everyone off makes me feel like home.

It's not very New Orlean-ian but Steins makes my life in New Orleans much better.  They have the best bagels in town and you can buy them frozen by the dozen.  So good that I go way out of my way to get them.  They also have fantastic sandwiches. The ECT (egg, cheese, tomato), reuben, and Rachal are favorites.  I even love the turkey panini (not sure that what its' actually called) with pesto and I don't really like turkey that much.  Even the pickles are outstanding.  Nice beer selection, though it's kind of a bummer not to be able to drink them onsite.  My only complaint is that it can get crowded and the parking lot fills up but that is obviously beyond their control.p.s.  Despite what the other reviewers say, Dan Stein likes his customers.

I used to live one block away from here between First and Philip several years ago but for some insane reason I never tried it out. Well I did today with a friend from school and I was very impressed!This place is on point when it comes to deli sandwiches. Maybe the reason I didn't go back then is because I was nowhere near the deli freak I am now, but who knows? I love that they let you choose from several types of bread and everything is so fresh! I also like that it is nice but still a totally no frills place where you can just do what you do.I had the Ruben and it was amazing, actually that's not an adequate adjective, I really don't  know how to describe how good that sandwich was.... easily one of the best I have had a months. If you have not been here yet, give them a try! More...

Best sandwich to graze my lips thus far in my years on this beautiful planet of ours.  Ordered BLT on pumpernickel, and it came toasted, heaven! My gal pal ordered a hot pastrami & Swiss on toasted rye. I had a bite and it was effing delish!  My greedy self wanted to order another for the drive back home. Regretting I didn't. Alas.....If I'm EVER in New Orleans again, I'm heading right back to Steins.  P.s. The decor was interesting, the service was awesome and the atmosphere a delight. Now a warning, DO NOT PARK in the private stalls of the delis shared parking lot. You will get towed! Enjoy! More...

Sandwiches are just sooooo good. Loved the pastrami. Love the freshness of the meats. Bagels are not the best (guessing bc they are not made fresh) though Steins does have them flown in from NY. Drinks are by the bottle. Not a lot of seating but it's fun to sit community style. More...

I didn't order food here. The interior was bit random. They got a shelves of beers in front. But as you walk all the way back and they had a refrigerated storage room stacked with more and rarer beers. They pretty much got the entire LA distributed beers covered.Interesting things I noted is that they have a lot more selections of barleywines than in the Southwest/Pacific. Too bad barleywine is one of my least favorite styles. More...

New York deli with great character classic for NOLA.  The Reuben was amazing!  Highly recommend.  Just do yourself a favor and get it.  We also had the Dan (turkey, Swiss, lettuce, tomato, bacon added avocado on wheat) which was really good also but didn't hold a candle to the Reuben.  Husband loved the beer selection in back.

After making a few trips here to get some of my fave West Coast beers, I finally had a chance to try a sandwich today and I was a very happy girl.The Mumbler was ciabatta loaded with delicious, salty prosciutto, arugula and tallegio cheese, which had a nice brie like texture. At $10.99, it's a bit of a splurge, but I didn't feel cheated since they weren't skimpy with the meat. Pickle on the side was okay, but not the best.They work quickly and no-nonsense and I appreciate the great selection of beer. More...

I don't recommend staying to eat there around lunch any day or any time on the weekends, very crowded. Yes, they are often rude A**holes, but its part of the charm of the place. They aren't going to suck up to you, they are going to make you a good sandwich and leave you alone. More...

Stein's makes wonderful sandwiches. The ingredients are all top notch and fresh and the bread is fresh baked and amazing. I can't recommend any one over the other. They are all delicious.

Sometimes, all you want is a damn good sandwich. Stein's always delivers. It's not an amazing, forward thinking, innovative kind of sandwich, what it is a good mix of meats and sauces places on the right bread and wrapped tightly in a while sheet of paper like any old New York deli place in Manhattan. It's simple, it's good, and it's a damn good sandwich. I have had the beef tongue and the hoagie here before. The hoagie is ok, but I was more a fan of the beef tongue. More...

A funky- slightly dirty...Jewish and Italian deli that actually has really great sandwiches. The place is usually very crowded, and being that it's tiny and cramped it's definitely hard to maneuver (especially with food in your hands). They have a nice selection of drinks, both adult and kid friendly. Service is usually blunt and potentially rude, but it definitely suits the atmosphere. Thus far, the Ruben here is one of my favorites in the city. This is one of my reliable spots for a good sandwich in the city. More...

My favorite deli in the city, pretty NY authentic. I honestly had a hard time writing this review because it forced me to pick my favorite menu items here, but I haven't had anything that wasn't great. Oh well, the long and short of it:1. The Rachel and Matzot Ball Soup. My favorite combination here, though I've never had a bad meal. Their matzot ball soup may cure all illnesses, I haven't confirmed this but it's always worked for me. Other notables are the chicken salad, beef tongue and potato leek soup.2. Beer Selection. This place has a lot of hard to find beer in this city (Sweetwater seasonals for me) so it's a great place to pick some up. The catch is that you can't drink in the restaurant. Luckily in NOLA street drinking is a norm anyway!3. Bagels. New Orleans seems to hate bagels. They're hard to find and the ones that are around typically aren't very good. This place is the exception. Grab one with some lox or a dozen with some fresh cream cheese if you want to be the popular one in the office that day. Always delicious.4. Space. This place is tiny and usually crowded. I've been here plenty of times where I have got my food only to find that there wasn't a single seat available. It makes moving around difficult as well, especially when holding food.Love this place and will continue to go back often. If you need some good Jew food in you (and we all need that occasionally) Steins will scratch that itch.Overall Grade: A More...
