Here's how Cheapism gave this hot spot its praises:

"When your comfort-food dreams include heaping piles of pastrami and matzo ball soup, family-run Hobby's in downtown Newark is a top choice in a state where competition among delis is stiff. But the wide-ranging menu means you can also grab a burger or hot dog, poutine, mac and cheese, and even eggplant parmesan."
