Fodor's Review

You don't go to a deli for the atmosphere, you for the food, and Elijah's is just what you'd expect: towering sandwiches, blintzes, and specialties like the "mish-mosh" soup that combines noodles, matzo balls, and shredded crepes in a big bowl of steaming chicken broth. Count on hearty breakfasts, reliable chopped liver, and dinners like chicken-in-the-pot and savory beef brisket. The restaurant makes impressive Reuben sandwiches, a combination of corned beef or pastrami, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island dressing on rye bread. Service is quick and friendly. One of San Diego's best art-movie theaters is 50 feet away.
