Benjies New York Deli

New York Style Delicatessen with Delicious Authentic Recipes with Great Value

Orange County’s Favorite Spot

To Discover Quality Jewish Food

First opening our doors in 1967, Benjies NY Deli has been a landmark of authentic Jewish food. Our family-owned and operated NY-style deli and restaurant boasts the classics you crave—from bagels and lox and matzo ball soup to pastrami on rye. One of the only old-school Jewish restaurants in Orange County, we pride ourselves in excellent service and unbeatable eats that will leave you feeling like you’re back in Bubbe’s 1960s Brooklyn kitchen.

We are a cornerstone of the North Tustin and Santa Ana communities and widely recognized as a must-experience restaurant in Orange County.

I have been coming here since it opened in 1967, and I will keep coming here, because there is nothing around that compares to the food quality and service.

Southern California’s Famous

Authentic Jewish Deli & Restaurant

Founder Stan Weinstein’s journey began back in the 1940s when he moved from a tiny Brooklyn brownstone to sunny Southern California with a dream of opening an authentic Jewish deli. Benjies NY Deli is a neighborhood staple for classic Jewish dishes, a place to build memories with family and friends. No matter what you’re celebrating: love, life, or the promise of laughter, Benjies is there to treat you.

Stop by our deli, restaurant, or full bar, or take us home with you. Our catering service allows you to bring the joy of home-cooked Jewish food to the dining room table without the schlep. With a vast menu of classic and contemporary dishes, Benjies has something to satisfy the whole family.
