OH Man this place is the absolute best in Cleveland for corned beef sandwish, he corns his own beef, can you imagine some doing all this work for as much beef he sells! He says it is done with love, the best kind of work in my book.
We always buy sandwiches at Goodmans (several visits) everytime we visit the family in Cleveland.

Great Service, friendly people, great food. The Best Potato salad I have ever tasted! I haven't tried the pastrami sandwich, but I will soon!

Cons: limited seating

Goodman's is the best-kept West side secret I can think of. To those of us in Brooklyn, it's an institution. This is the place you take out-of-towners to impress them, though, granted, when you walk in the door, the decor is very, well, 1973. But one bite and you will be bowled over. They've got, hands down, the BEST corned beef sandwich you will ever eat. This is not hyperbole here. I don't know what they do to their meat-- something in the spices or in the cooking or what-- but it has an unbelievable almost buttery flavor that no other sandwich shop can touch. The sandwiches are huge-- maybe 4 or 5 inches thick with beef on fresh soft rye. Denny's the guy carving up your lunch, and you might catch his father Saul there, still running the cash registers at age 94. The waitress cracks bawdy jokes and slides cans of soda down the lunch counter like they do in movies. Seating is limited, but stop in on a sunny day (the waitress insists the place fills up on rainy afternoons-- "People are like ants," she says, "they come out after the rain") or during off-hours if you're in a hurry or don't want to sit elbow-to-elbow with salt-of-the-earth West siders.

Pros: Huge sandwiches, good folks

Cons: It's not good to eat as much corned beef as I wish I could

I never go to Cleveland without stopping in at Goodman's. I love the corned beef sandwich. However, I love the pastrami sandwich even better. Their sandwiches are so tender. Their cooks and servers are so friendly. Their sandwiches never disappoint. They are ALWAYS GREAT.

This restaurant has a great feel to it - like an old school diner which is very rare to find these days. The food is absolutely delicious, especially the sandwiches. The owner is very hands-on and works in the restaurant making sandwiches instead of hiding in the back somewhere. The staff is very friendly and I love that they always enthusiastic which is great to see.

I had never had corned beef until my frien brought me here for the first time about 5 years ago. Oh my gosh- this is the best corned beef sandwich you will ever try!! The diner is a true old diner with all the atmosphere and great people!! And the owner is always in the front window making the best sandwiches for many people!!

The best corned beef i've ever had. The guy slices it right in front of you by hand. Get it lean and you will not be disappointed. The setup is ok but it's a bit small. That does not stop me from eating there.

This place is a throw back to better days when sliced meat meant sliced by hand, not machine. Goodmans still cuts their corned beef by hand and it shows in the generous portions piled high on rye bread. Come for the food and be prepared to wait. Limited seating
