The Scene
Happy eaters stand elbow to elbow around tables converted from barrels in this stand-up deli. Trays of pickles and sour tomatoes are on the table to accompany big meals. Chalkboards with menus sit above a long service…

    i'm really shocked by some of the bad reviews for this place. It is a little pricey but i have eaten here over 30 times and I have never had a disappointing meal. Their burgers are amazing, and the only thing that could make this place… Read more »

    We have been customers of the Smallman Street Deli ever since it opened several years ago. We are retired now and get into town less than we used to. My wife used to work at Nordic in the Strip. It has been about two years since our last… Read more »

    I had the opportunity to visit the Smallman Street Deli for lunch today. The gentleman (I use this word loosely) behind the counter - it could be the manager was so rude and condescending. He made disparaging comments about me and said… Read more »

    I absolutely love The Smallman Street Deli. Since the Sq. Hill location has opened I much more frequently make it to that location. It's closer to home, open evenings and weekends and offers a larger menu...including great breakfast… Read more »

    One star, If I could give them less I would, over priced! I've had better soup at Subway! The soup which they charge close to $5 ($4.66) for might as well be from a can, 95% water and this isn't the first time. The deli sandwiches are… Read more »

    The sandwiches were so expensive! The atmosphere was nice but the food was average. I like to eat but after vsiting there twiceI am convinced the owners are reviewing their own product, just look at the reviews they were all writtten… Read more »

    The salami sandwhich is just amazing and so is the matzoball soup (just like grandma's)! The pickles and pickled tomatoes on the table just add such an authentic New York deli touch. What a wonderful deli, just what Pittsburgh needs!!! … Read more »

    I always look forward to sinking my teeth into a delicious corn beef sandwich from the Smallman Street Deli! Then I wash it down with a bowl of hot and tasty matzo ball soup and a side of the refreshing cucumber/tomato salad. What could be… Read more »

  • By jpw194 over 8 years ago on Citysearch

    As someone who has lived in Pittsburgh their entire life I can honestly say that this is the only deli in the city that can "stack up" to the old deli's of yesteryear (no pun intended). This old fashioned, family owned deli is known for… Read more »

    I had the BEST Corned Beef sandwich I have ever had in my life. More specifically it was called the "Rachel." This heavenly treat consisted of Corned beef, coleslaw (homemade, of course), 1000 Island dressing and melted swiss cheese on Rye… Read more »

  • By jonas37 over 8 years ago on Citysearch

    Hands down the best sandwich in Pittsburgh. They stack the deli meat high and the quality, especially the corn beef, is fantastic. If you have any room left in your stomach after lunch, I highly recommend their homemade cookies. I can't… Read more »

  • By kaw10579 over 8 years ago on Citysearch

    As soon as you walk into this 'New York Style Deli' it takes you there... only cleaner, yummier and friendlier! The food is far superior than other deli foods in the area. I recommend the Rachel or create just about any sandwich you are… Read more »

  • By jeffcoh over 8 years ago on Citysearch

    The food is below average and overpriced. 8.00 for a corned beef sandwich! This isn't NYC and neither is the food comparison. Read more »

  • By pashako over 8 years ago on Citysearch

    I was excited to have a sandwich shop in the strip where I could walk from my workplace. However, the prices have increased and the quality and service have decreased. The meat and cheese no longer taste fresh.\r \r I tried Smallman… Read more »

    The meat is fatty and the sandwiches are on slices of bread that taste like spounges. The lettuce was wilted and the tomatoes were mushy. Read more »

  • By brcst5 about 12 years ago on Citysearch

    I absolutely love this place. They have unbelieveable sandwiches that do not claim to be NY style, but in a way they really are. A half of sandwich is a meal. The food is fresh and everyone is just so friendly. I love this place so much.… Read more »
