  • Get the brisket. The pastramis flesh is dark and has a distinctive dark black line of crust around it that none of the other pastramis here do.
  • They call their brisket sandwich famous for a reason, the meat just melts in your mouth with every bite.
  • One of the best deli spots in Washington D.C. The Parisian, Mikey's Special, and #175 (corned beef w Russian dressing) are all worth the trip. They also have spectacular pastries and baked items.
  • Excellent beef brisket sandwich!
  • Quality Deli in NW Washington that is a part of DC history.
  • Best sandwiches you can buy anywhere; great beer selection; good hot bar. They've got you covered.
  • Amazing meat, poultry, seafood, veggies and bakery!
  • Ask for Pam she is the greatest butcher ever. Very helpful and great at her job. :-)
  • Amazing chicken matzo ball soup.
  • Head to Wagshal's to pick up not only high quality beef, pork and chicken, but also unique meats like kangaroo and rattlesnake.
  • Bacon glazed donut!
  • The chicken chipotle burger is delicious (and 4.99 - cant beat that!). On Friday afternoons they have wine and cheese samples too.
  • Try the Opera Cake. It's close to being a chocolate version of Mille Feuille.
  • Huge variety, nice staff, but it would've been nice if my veggie sandwich had the carrots and Swiss that were advertised, especially for $7.99.
  • Great on the go sandwiches
  • Much improved with renovation!
  • For those outside the Beltway, Wagshals has just launched a website that sells the signature brisket as well as a handful of other tasty noshes.
  • Great sandwiches but over priced
  • Thought the basket sandwich was WAY too greasy. The bread melted in a pool of fat. The #75 (beef tongue) sandwich was amazing though.
  • Awful! Sandwich was cold and employees were so rude plus it was $10. What a joke!!!
