Lets start with the noodles. Instead of overwhelming the bowl with larger noodles that tend to get in the way, Fromins serves up uber-thin shards like the frayed ends of a comfy pair of blue jeans. \r

Maybe I'm spoiled, but this was one of the worst corned beef ruebens ever. The meat was lean, but almost tasteless. The portion was not very generous, potato salad and cole slaw were awful. I expected something like this from Denny's. And

once the food appeared it was a lunch special made in heaven: 1/2 Sandwich and a Bowl Of Soup for $11+tip. Oh yeah, they threw in coleslaw as well, which was, as a coleslaw connoisseur, I would say it was pretty good. On my plate also

I've been going to Fromins for 30 years (this year is their 30 year anniversary) and I guess I don't have much other deli experience, other than Izzy/s, Cantors, Factors, and Jerry's.
I don't know... it's good! The sandwiches are great. The soup is yummy. Love the eclairs. Everything is delicious. I enjoyed it before I had kids, I love it now that I do - they are very accommodating to all people. ALL PEOPLE young, middle and old.
Tell me ?? if not FROMINS ? where?

Food - excelent
Prices - not cheap (but a good value)
Service - excelent
Atmosphere - comfortable / clean / neat

Pros: Friendly staff, lots of seating, plenty of parking, great food.

Cons: If you insist on having a hip decor, you will be disappointed.

We frequently go here. The food is reasonably priced comfort food. The mazo ball soup is good, and the taco salad is very good as well. Oh - the reuben sandwiuch is also very tasty.

I love a good deli, but in LA, they're all so darn costly! Froman's has the best food, I've found, and the prices are still very reasonable. I recommend the chicken taco salad -- not what you'd expect from a Jewish deli.

Fromins food is pretty gross, and I found the restaurant to be somewhat dirty. When I complained, the owner was rude and not helpful in the least. The only nice thing about this place is the ample parking.

My wife and I had always avoided going to Fromins since if we were going to go to a dive deli Izzy's was closer and for some reason we had it in our minds that Fromins was a poor man's Izzy's, which is saying something. Well, circumstances led us to Fromin's yesterday for brunch and while we were not blown away we were pleasantly surprised at how much it didn't suck. The space is much bigger than Izzy's which was good for us since we have a toddler who is prone to throw things and make a lot of noise so she could use a bit of room. They put us in the back in a booth which was great and then they started pouring a lot of cheap strong coffee. The food is pretty much what you would expect and the service is too but all in all you could do worse for a cheap brunch.

PROS: good cheap family place
CONS: you get what you pay for

Fromin's is a great basic deli to go to for all your deli cravings. It is one of the only few authentic deli's in the Santa Monica area, and it works. The service is quick and satisfying. They have a mean corn beef sandwich too. I would say the Fromin'sin Encino is a little better, but overall this one compares.
