Pastrami on rye is perhaps one of the most famous sandwiches found in any New York deli, including on Long Island, and when the craving for one strikes, nothing but the best will satisfy that hunger. 

Long Islanders voted Ben’s Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers the Best Pastrami Sandwich on Long Island in the 2020 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest, a title they’ve won 10 years in a row!

Ben’s Deli puts the heart into this hearty meal. Since 1972, they have served as Long Island’s premier Kosher delicatessen, stacking the tallest, meatiest pastrami sandwich around.

Ben’s overstuffed sandwiches are a melt-in-your-mouth treat between two slices of rye. If you’re brave, you’ll take it all in one bite, but you’ll likely want to take a few slices home for later. Complete your meal with fresh-cut coleslaw and crunchy pickles and you’re in business!

Brisket cured in brine and coated with seasonings such as garlic, black pepper, mustard seed, coriander, paprika and more, the meat is smoked, then steamed. Afterwards it’s put on your sandwich before it voyages into your stomach. 

Ben’s offers pick up, dine in, and catering, so you can enjoy their delectable delights whether you’re staying a while or elsewhere. For the top cuts of pastrami on the island, stroll into Ben’s and make the Best Pastrami Sandwich on Long Island your choice for all of your pastrami cravings!
