    The Cream of the Crop!

    ive only eaten in once in my time. i always take orders to go so i really cant rate the table service. the guys behind the counter are to the point. im a new yorker and always try to stop here when i pass through houston street. katzs is by far the best of the best. i usually always get a corned beef and or pastrami. there has never been a bad day with the meat. its always excellent. the hot dogs are great. knishes too! pickles and soups are outstanding! always!only item i tried and didnt like was the cole slaw. that aside,,with the big name and all,this place still rocks!

    Katz's has great traditional deli

    Katz's has great traditional deli! Nothing nouveau or trendy here - just traditional, old-fashioned deli menu . Everything my companion and I tried was excellent: chicken matzo bal soup was the kind with a giant ball, incredibly light; knobblewurst was just right; the knishes were excellent; the cheesecake was the best NY style I have had in ages, and all washed down with celery tonic. He has had the pastrami before our visit and said it was fabulous - it looked excellent on our visit as well. And considering that this type of food can tend to be heavy and greasy, you didn't feel like you were eating leaden lumps - it was all tasty and as light as that type of cuisine can be. The place isn't fancy but they've tried to keep vestiges of their old school decor and it's a charming mishmash. It is not cheap, but on the other hand, the portions range from generous to huge - two people on a budget can split a sandwich. Thumbs up to Katz's!

    Famous name, little value

    An experience that I have had too many times in New York City, and the reason why I avoid these places: Many landmark restaurants, especially ethnic ones, that created a well deserved reputation for value and quality decades ago, now live off their name, which is enough to keep them packed with tourist and local newbies, but is also a disincentive to offer real value, especially when it comes to service. This place is a mess! I went there today around 2 in the afternoon. I asked a waitress where I should sit, she pointed at a table in the center against the wall, then proceeded to ignore me for a good 10 minutes while the entire time she was only one table away from me, mostly standing around not doing much. When I asked her about taking my order, she pointed at the other waitress, that was way at the other end, about ten tables away. Finally, I got up and went to the first table by the entrance, where I had seen the other waitress moments before, within a couple of minutes the waitress came and asked me: "are you going to order?", I answered: "I've been trying for 10 minutes". I ordered a Reuben sandwich and a Vanilla Egg Cream Soda. A minute later she came back with some pickles, never to return again. I saw her at a distance toward the end of the restaurant past where I had been, and then I saw her disappear, and then appear again at the counter, and then resting against the counter casually talking to an employee. It's 15 minutes later now: How long does it take to make a sandwich?. The place was less than half full, and at one point there was no customer at the counter. No one behind the counter seemed to be doing any work, what can be taking so long, where is my food?. Finally, I got up and left. I don't mind paying good money for good food, but a good corned beef or pastrami sandwich is not so hard to find in New York City to be worth this aggravation.

    The ultimate!

    A really great deli, with fabulous atmosphere and food - the service was great - try to get on one of Richie's tables, the little guy who looks and sounds like Woody Allen, and really friendly too - we were expecting surly but Richie could not have been nicer and funnier. The signature pastrami on rye is monumental, far too much for one person but the pastrami is to die for. The pickles and coleslaw tasted great to us but I'm no expert - the burger our son insisted on wasn't up to much, but that was his fault for not taking our advice and having the hot dog! Oh yeah, and the draft beer, made for Katz's by Brooklyn Brewery, was great too. Highly recommended, particularly for meat lovers!

    Best deli in NYC

    Even when the 2nd Ave. Deli was open, it wasn't better. This is the best.

    The best

    As a deli "maven", I've tried all the biggies in the city and Katz's is by far the best. The pastrami and corned beef are incredible. The pickles are great, and even though the cole slaw is just ok, the hot dogs and knishes are great. As for reports of rude staff, I've always encountered friendly, when I was friendly. I've seen rudeness, but only in return from rude guests. This place is the true ny deli. The only place close is the stage door,b ut it is a different scne.
