If I were on Death Row, one of my final requests would be a pastrami on rye from Katz's. Ate there for the first time last month after wasting time and $ at uptown delis. Sure it's a bit pricey but you've got to pay for the best.

Hot dogs. Corned beef sandwich. That's it. And they're the best in the city: much, MUCH better than the Second Avenue Deli's versions. (SAD has better fries, though...) I've only eaten in once or twice, usually it's takeout/walkabout or takehome, but the times I did I found the service prompt and attentive, if not exactly effusive. Good solid place.

The girls decided to take mom out for pastrami at the famous Katz's Deli Saturday night (Sept 13, 2008) around 8PM. We are not tourists, but mom is visiting from Australia, so we thought this would be a fun evening for her. Oy vey. Upon being seated, the seater told us if one of us reenacts the famous "orgasm" scene, we'd get free cheesecake. Of course one of us did, and we, as well as our neighboring tables, all had a good laugh. While waiting for our food, we snapped pictures of the sign hanging over the famous table and checked out all the celebrity pictures on the wall. Our food was served in an okay timeframe by a militant, overworked waiter. The pastrami was TO DIE FOR - melts in your mouth - and it's the only thing positive I can say about this joint. What happened next was awful. Our waiter's shift ended right before we finished our meal and another waiter was NOT assigned to our table. Do you think someone could've told us?? We did not have service from this point on. Of course we didn't know this until we hunted down a waitress and told her we'd like our free cheesecake. The new waitress on duty had the table behind us and in front of us, but simply told us we'd have to come back for the free cheesecake because she didn't promise us anything. Okay, fair enough, although we felt like idiots now because the server obviously knew she was getting off shift and apparently made us moan for her own amusement. Fortunatly for us, one of the girls in our party did not find this amusing at all. She promptly complained to the manager and got us free cheesecake. But not before WE cleaned off our own table, removed our dinner plates, and served our own cheesecake.

The best pastrami in the city. Runs rings around the new 2nd Ave.

This place is a full-on joke now. Katz has nothing going for them and yet they keep on going..he must own the building..because he cannot possibly be staying afloat.. the food is sub-par, the service is embarassing...and get this one..they claim that they "deliver". They won't deliver for anything under $80...ok then katz, you cater..you don't deliver..nice try idiots..

The pastrami on rye is ridiculously great! The whole experience is a must, very intimidating the first time you go. They hand you a ticket at the door (which cost $50 if lost) the you go to a counter where you sandwich is hand carved and hot. Every celebrity in NYC has been there. Also try the hot dog. If you want a knish go down the street to yonah schimmel's. Pricey for a sandwich but you will not leave hungry and it is worth it.
