Best Corned Beef/Deli 



There are now more ways than ever to get your Slyman's fix thanks to the recently opened outpost on Rockside, a food truck that followed that suburban expansion, and a soon-to-debut location in Orange, not to mention the oldie but goodie original on St. Clair that's been dishing up the famed corned beef for more than 50 years. There are also few more satisfying culinary pleasures or quintessentially Cleveland dishes than a tower of Slyman's shaved corned beef piled high between two slices of rye, so the more the merrier. It's not all about the corned beef, of course, though it's the star and the reason for nationwide acclaim: Slyman's dishes up a full deli menu including pastrami and turkey that are well worth your time. If you have the strength to pass on the signature class though, you're a better eater than we.
