No-frills, cash-only deli with theatrically cranky service serving mile-high sandwiches since 1888.- Google
People talk about pastrami sandwich, corned beef, harry met sally, pastrami on rye and pickles

The only place me and my family default to when we want to have those warm pastrami or corned beef sandwiches. My father has been taking me here since I was a child. The hot dogs are awesome too. The same taste, the same quality meats, but the sandwiches have shrunken by a 1/3 since back in the day. I remember used to getting more meat piled on. Still love them though. I truly recommend this NYC landmark.

my father and i went there around noon, we got 2 Reubens and a roast beef sandwich for my grandmother, and some fries. the total came out to SEVENTY FIVE DOLLARS!!! some of you might be saying "oh but zombycow, the quality of the food makes up for it right?" WRONG. the Reuben's were shit, the meat was bland mush, the bread was soggy, the onions were crunchy and undercooked, the dressing was non existent ,and the cheese.......what cheese? the fries were gluey on the inside to a point that you couldn't eat more than a few without feeling as if you just chugged a bottle of glue. then later that night (right now as i write this review) i am overcome with the worst stomach cramps, some horrid diarrhea, and frankly I'm about to puke. "Quality" food my ass.

I tried Pastami Sandwich on Rye. Fortunately for me, there wasn't long line as it was slightly early lunch (around 11am). It was $18.45 for a sandwich, which is a lot for a sandwich. It tasted good, but didn't think it was worth of money. I was expecting to have mind blowing experience with the sandwich as I did at David's Brisket in Bushwick, Brooklyn. If you're tourist visiting New York, it's worth to try out. In the end, it has the heritage. CASH ONLY.

Katz's Deli was, is and always will be a great spot for a pastrami sandwich. You go in, get a sandwich the size of your head and some fries to go with it and you chow down. Its not that expensive considering how much you are eating and how famous it is. Its in a great location on Houston right near bars and is open late so if you want a giant snack that can double as a meal you can go there right after a night out on the town. Lots of pictures on the walls of famous people who have eaten there and you can always meet friendly people there as well

Shocked that I haven't written a review for Katz a longtime ago because I learned of this restaurant as a teen when my mother used to take me. If you love pastrami or meat in general you will LOOOVE Katz! I have been spolied by this place and seriously have a hardtime eating pastrami anywhere else. The pastrami is the only sandwhich I have ever tried and it is the best pastrami that I have ever had. As you can imagine its always crowded so I usually get a to go. There is usually a wait to order your sandwich and the server always allows you to taste the meat before making your sandwich. You can even order a leaner version which cost a little more because they will trim the fat from the meat they make your sandwich mother always requests this. The sandwhiches are so stuffed with meat that you can make several normal sandwiches out their one. You can even get pickles to accompany your meal which come in a few flavors if you like.

Katz's is one of those places you need to go to if you visit NYC. Its like Bens Chillibowl in DC and Pats Steak in Philly -- thing is... Katz really is a fantastic option beating out a lot of local stops where as Bens and Pats are average and local stops easily decimate them. Katz's is a Jewish delicatessen -- if its your first time make sure a) you have cash and b) you look at the menu before you line up. I would recommend getting the Pastrami or the salami -- better yet get the half sandwich and the matzo ball soup -- you cant go wrong with that. Remember Cash, know what you want to order, and dont lose your ticket. -- Keep that in mind and you should be good to go.
