    Shanekia's Review

    When I went to Katz's for the first time, I fell in love with it. The staff is friendly and they aim to please their customers. I went with a large group of 42, so we were served family style. Trust me, there is enough good food, fun, and good times if you go to this restaurant, especially with people that you love and enjoy being around!

    Not Kosher

    Despite what the other reviewer wrote, Katz's is NOT a kosher deli. However, it is quite good. Like everyone else said, go for the pastrami or corned beef sandwiches. Be prepared to have leftovers.

    Can't beat this pastrami

    I have been eating in NYC for years and tried to avoid this place because of all the hype. I finally caved and got the pastrami and it is unbelievable. Sure it is expensive, but it is well worth it. The hot dogs were nothing to write home about, and it has it's quirks but if you want pastrami, this is the place to go.

    YUM! YUM! Succulent pastrami, and I usually NEVER would order it anywhere else. But one taste and I was HOOKED! Chicken noodle soup is awesome too....thick, hearty noodles and chunks of chicken. The turkey sandwich is a little dry for my liking though. As for the atmosphere, it's not really a "date" place...very vintage, kinda dirty at times (there can be flies). And don't you DARE lose your ticket.

    Kosher doesn't necessarily mean clean

    I always thought that kosher kitchens were always kept very clean, but eating at Katz's I learned that's not always true. The counters needed wiping, and it was just kind of gross. Nobody but tourists eat here. The ordering system, where you take a ticket and wait in line is a big pain in the a**.

    Disagree with "Second Best"

    I have to strongly disagree with the posting "Second Best." I have been to both Katz's and Carnegie Deli numerous times, having lived in NYC for many years, and Katz's is hands-down better. Don't get me wrong, Carnegie Deli is no slouch either, but this is no contest. In addition, the atmosphere is so much better at Katz's, with the walk-up ordering and long counter of sandwich makers. In addition, Carnegie Deli caters primarily to tourists while you'll see many more locals at Katz's... always a good sign of good eateries.

    When you die you go to Katz's

    At least I hope that's where you go. Ok, I can't vouch for too much on the menu, and I think the prices are a bit hefty for a sandwich, BUT....the pastrami is simply the most delicious I've ever tasted...period. At almost $13, it's a bit sinful for a sandwich, but the meat is of such unsurpassed quality, I actually prefer eating my sandwich with a knife and fork...it makes me feel like I'm having a complete meal. And believe me, the pastrami sandwich will leave you as satisfied as any other sinful indulgence. Oh yeah, the pickles are great too, and with a Dr. Brown's cream soda, you're in for a real NY Jewish treat that is fit for a king.
