    Omg! Tower of everything. Corned beef, pastrami, bacon, turkey, cheese. Good for sharing, even for the regular order ones. I love their strawberry cheesecake. Old chinese lady was so cute.

    Be forewarned-sandwiches are HUGE! Definitely share! You think it's pricey then you see what you get and you see why. Really fun place to be! If you want lunch go early-the line gets crazy by 12.

    We visit here whenever in NYC. Even as a vegetarian I loved this place. Their veggie burger is to die for and their red velvet cake is spectacular. Huge, tasty salads and amazing sandwiches.

    Scrumptious sandwiches. I recommend the Reuben; it is incredible. Just a heads-up: the sandwiches are stupidly huge so plan on splitting. Small, packed, little place with an awesome New York-feel.

    When Carmelo Anthony came to town the deli immortalized him with a meat monument known as "The Melo". It's a skyscraper of pastrami, salami, corned beef, lettuce, tomato, Russian dressing and bacon.

    Matzoh ball soup + Woody Allen + Potato Knish + Cheesecake = best meal you will EVER have. Just don't eat anything the day before or the day after and you will still be taking 1/2 home!!!

    Usually get the Woody Allen sandwich (combo of pastrami and corned beef). Everything is top shelf, here- Matzo ball soup; Brisket; Latkes - all good. Desserts are fantastic- try the 5th Avenue Pie

    One of my all-time favorites. Dinner there on Monday with mom, brother Steve, Kreda, Sosh and son, Jackson. Brother ask waiter if bread comes with his omelette. "You have to ask," he says. Classic!

    This place is a must-go! I tell all my friends! They have the best cheesecake in the whole world! I I know people who don't like cheesecake, and they all loved this one!

    Everything is big here. You can split anything you get with someone else. Sandwiches, knish, cheesecake are worth trying at least once.

    Be aware of the size of the sandwiches! Huge portions; the Woody Allen is delicious! Pastrami with corn beef

    A tourist destination that charges $3 to split a sandwich. Still…it’s worth it once you dive into their giant pastrami sandwich served in a hot minute.

    If you want to pay an arm and a leg for a pile of pastrami between two slices of cold bread this is the place to go. Servers are pushy and you are herded around. Go just to take a pic.

    Get the Woody Allen. If you're not a big eater, ask to share it. If you're a big eater, still ask to share. Finish off with the fresh strawberry cheesecake.

    Best damn cheesecake around! Great service. Doesn't take cards but there is an ATM on site and the waitresses are nice enough to make change if you need it.

    “the matzo-ball soup is terrific; The towering Woody Allen is satisfying; Carnegie is impt because it's the last of the great tourist-hazing Broadway showbiz delis” – GS: http://tinyurl.com/m8jpzn3

    Grab a pastrami on rye, but share it unless you're feeling epic. Same story with the cheesecake, if you can handle it after the meats!

    Great place for meat-eaters. Good place to stop after tiring your guests out walking through Central Park. Get cheesecake take-out at nearby Stage Deli on your way home.

    Overpriced? Yeah. Delicious? You bet! An institution for a reason. Get some before it closes! Woody Allen. Latke. Cheesecake.

    The venerable delicatessen's Sandwich of the Month. This puppy features a pair of latkes piled with roast turkey, gravy and stuffing, served open-faced with cranberry sauce on the side.

    Ask how big a side dish is before ordering. Potions here are huge. I asked for a side of bacon and I swear they brought me a pound of it on a plate.

    Have eaten here for 40 years. With it closing on Dec. 31 this was my last experience tonight: they closed an hour early because of "technical" problems and the manager didn't care. Good riddance.

    Here you'll find one of the tastiest potato knishes on the planet. A soft and buttery crust with delicious mashed potatoes inside.

    I got the woody allen sandwich with a slice of swiss. Nothing special I still prefer Katz over Carnegie. But I heard their reuben was pretty good so I'll guess I'll have to come back for that!

    Out-of-towners be advised, food servings are massive. Pay the split charge to share and save yourself some money (and pounds).

    $16.75 for their famous Pastrami sandwich, and $9.75 for a slice of cheesecake. It's pricey because the portions are big enough for two, so go there with a friend.

    USA Today deemed this deli to the "most famous deli in the United States." It's also great for late night dining since it's open until 4 a.m. Read more

    The pastrami was tender and was possibly the best I have ever had. Also large portions so sharing was perfect.

    Pastrami on rye with spicy mustard. The menu is HUGE but this is the best thing you can order.

    Portions are HUGE! Split meals, unless you want a couple of days worth of leftovers. It's worth the $3 split plate fee.

    Always good - always plenty. This place may be touristy but the locals love it too because it's awesome. Don't forget - cash only.

    Tip: Portions are big so share a Woody Allen with someone cute who's about to give a talk at a prestigious economics conference.

    Split a sandwich and slice of cheesecake between two, still a mountain of food! Leave the tip on the table and just pay the bill at the cash register.

    The Pastrami Reuben is as good as everyone says it is. Sandwich is HUGE, share it with another person (or 2).

    Go for breakfast, too: coffee's hot. Platters are big. And you can still order your fav mega sandwich.

    Best cheesecake! Tip: they serve you a generous portion so it would be wise not to order a sandwich because that's also a generous portion.

    Try one of everything. If you get the Reuben, being someone to split it with.

    Nom Nom. If you like your sandwiches piled high, then you are in for quite the experience at the NYC staple. We recommend the "Woody Allen!"
