    Thankfully that they were open when we we desperately needed a place to eat. We just happened to be near ACE hotel checking out the place when hunger struck. We didn't even realize it was late in the afternoon, but low and behold we found KENNY & ZUKES!

    If you're in the mood for a hearty sandwich and love a good Reuben. This is your spot! And definitely love that they put eggs inside the sammy!

    Kenny & Zuke's Delicatessen serves deli classics like pistrami on rye and chopped liver. The servings are plentiful and their delis are fresh and taste delicious.

    I stopped here for dinner and after checking out the Ace Hotel (basically next door) as a possible future place to stay. Even though it had gotten a bit chilly on this early evening, it was fun sitting outside with the neat metal patio furniture and watching the world go by.

    It was an off night for me and Kenny. I opted for the $12.50 3-course dinner special, which includes soup, half a sandwich, and an ice cream sundae. However, I didn't find out until the very end that they were out of ice cream and that I had to "settle" for some pretty good rugalach (which was breakfast the next morning). The chicken soup was just OK, but it definitely wasn't what "Mama used to make".

    Service was very fun and friendly, but slow. My intrepid waiter also overcharged my credit card by slightly over a generous tip amount. I figured the total was close enough, but I came away irritated at what I hope was an honest oversight.

    On the positive side, the half deli sandwich was warm and delicious and more than enough to eat. And it went very well with a most excellent red Oregon beer.

    Everything was good at this Jewish deli. I particularly liked my blintzes: fresh berries, cream cheesy goodness, with a mug of coffee and fresh squeezed oj. Nice breakfast!

    Really good pastrami sandwiches, line can be a little long but its totally worth it. If you have time to kill then head to Stumptown in the Ace hotel for a coffee or Clyde Common for a drink.

    Still dream about this place. Great lunch, and their 2-2-2 breakfast (2 eggs, 2 potato pancakes, 2 pieces of pastrami) is something to write home about.
