I have been going to What's Cooking for 20 years. This is a family owned restaurant with delicious recipes, huge portions and great value. Specials every day & holidays. Plenty of good parking, always people waiting in line. The food is worth it. I've tried almost everything on the menu over the years, and haven't found a bad dish yet. Their soups are homemade daily. Try it, and you will be hooked!

What's Cookin' is the closest you're likely to find these days to an old-time Jewish deli - big with lots of tables and a small sit down counter. Even with all the tables, on weekends you may have a wait. As for menu, they're not kosher, but they have most of the old favorites -- the chicken soups, borsht, chopped chicken liver, smoked salmon, bialis, kasha mit varnishes etc. They do a big business around the holidays (and close for them). They have a large menu including kids portions, daily specials, items for smaller appetites, and some unusual dishes of their own. A favorite is the What's Cookin Salad, which is greens topped with perfectly done grilled salmon and toasted, sweetened pecans. I don't know who got the idea for this, but it's wonderful. One of the old deli customs is the basket of bread that comes with your soup or your meal. At some times of day it comes out warm, so I assume it's made on the premises. Their cold case in the front shows their melons and their wildly extravangant desserts (which vary). One that was new to me is a heavily frosted cake that features, baked in the middle, custard filled chocolate eclairs. (Don't ask me how this is done, but it sure looks good). They're open to midnight most evenings, so this is a good late night visit. And worth a drive for good deli food!

Very ample portions, enough to take home. Cabbage soup excellent.
