My Light Lunch
I ordered a Wilensky Special with cheese, sour pickles (half-sour are available), and a cherry cola made right before my eyes.
Wilensky's is a true luncheonette, with seating only at the nine stools at the counter. Because service is so fast, the seats tend to turn quickly.
Meat on the Grill
The Wilensky's Special has bologna and salami (both all-beef) ready to roll, part of the reason why sandwich orders are so speedy.
Sandwiches Cooking at the Grill
Another non-family member (but devoted employee) at the grill. The source of the buns is a secret, but their crunchy texture post-grilling is surely a key to Wilensky's success.
Mustard Policy at Wilensky's
Signs in English and French explain why mustard is a must at Wilensky's. I like how the policy streamlines service.
This board shows how pricing of sandwiches has progressed since the shop opened in 1932.
Books for Sale
It's worth exploring all the shelves and space at Wilensky's. The corner store has always sold dry goods and more, and these bookcases had some interesting reads.
