I love this place. I love the matzo ball soup and the knishes. Try the potato latkes and all the sandwiches. The best kosher deli I've ever set my sights on. And, the best part, while you're chowing down, you can look at all the celebrities pictures on the wall. Also, treat yourself to their eggcreams.

Katz's is still the best deli in NYC when it comes to atmosphere, albeit with 90% of the people eating there from anywhere else but NYC. Best things about Katz's- 1) the french fries, 2) their homemade Russian dressing, 3) their one-of-a-kind knockwurst sandwich (which is kind of expensive, 4) the smell of the place. As far as their sandwiches, they are VERY expensive. The brisket is excellent and the pastrami might be the leanest, and thus less flavorful, than any other deli. On my latest visit, I had a frank with sauerkraut, knockwurst, french fries, and the ultimate deli libation; a can of Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray (a must for anyone who hasn't tasted this NY soda.) My bill- $15.95 (and they only take cash!) I also like the fact that Katz's hasn't ruined the deli experience by offering cheese on their sandwiches; cheese is for fondue, not NYC deli! I only wish they would machine slice their sandwich meats. Hand-slicing is overrated and too thick!

We went to Katz's a little over a week ago and had some of the tastiest sandwiches we can remember. Thanks to the staff for a great experience!

Katz's is the best In NYC. I no longer have family there but if in NY a trip is a must. I can recall old Mr. Katz who was giving tickets out when I was a boy. If u cant afford a sandwich I sorry, and for u of the out of town group also I am sorry. You most likely will never know a good meal if it was for free. Thanks Katz's for being there and I try all the time to cook for my family like Katz;s.

I have been going to Katz's for about 6 years, (sorry i am only 24) but the pastrami is ridiculously good. Get it with mustard on a roll (they put more meat on it) and sour pickles and tomatoes on the side. And remember that you should be tipping the cutter, most of them are really nice and once you take care of them, they take care of you. I was there a few nights ago with 2 of my buddies, we got 3 pastramis on rolls and the cutter (whom remembered me from prior visits) gave us the whole slab of pastrami on the 3 sandwiches. And the tasting plate had 2 layers of pastrami. They're pastrami is so good you don't need anything else on it, except mustard. If you can't spend the $20 that it's gonna cost....STAY AWAY...

Read through these reviews and you'll get the story. The earliest are from 2004 and overwhelmingly positive; the more recent ones are overwhelmingly negative. The new owners should be ashamed of themselves for ruining a once-great deli for the sake of penny pinching.
