    Remember to tip the guy making your sandwich. Sandwich big enough for two if you're not ravenous

    The pastrami on Rye is good, but it depends on the person serving it. We ordered two pastrami's on rye from different people and they were completely different. Dont bother with the fries!

    Katz ale and a pastrami on rye will run you $23 usd. But it's a big ass sandwich!!

    Easy to understand why Sally had such a great experience here - the pastrami Reuben is definitely o-worthy!

    It's the quintessential New York deli -- as seen in When Harry Mat Sally. Order the classics: corned beef, pastrami or tongue with a Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray chaser.

    Every cutter has his own line so don't be afraid to move around. To order beer go to the burger guy. I suggest the katz's ale

    I'll have what she's having. The famous scene of 1989's "When Harry Met Sally" took place here at Katz's. There's even a sign at the specific table where Billy Crystal and Megan Ryan sat Read more

    Order a Pastrami Reuben with a Dr. Brown's Cel-ray Soda. Best Pastrammy Sammy in NY, forget Carnegie Deli. Even better than Canter's in LA. And don't forget to tip your guy.

    Reuben w/ Pastrami will make you sit at your table in awe. Amazing. I wish I could just sit there until I am hungry again.

    Don't get table service. Tip your sandwich maker. Enjoy a half of a pastrami or corned beef sandwich with a bowl of matzoh ball soup on a cold, wintry day.

    If you tip the pastrami guy while he's cutting the meat, you get a better cut

    Its excellent, don't get me wrong; but $24 for a sandwich??? Consider yourself warned.

    Tongue and mustard on rye FTW. Half sour tomato and pickles also for the secondary win. Seriously don't lose that ticket.

    Pastrami on rye is just too big for us girls and Europeans. Bagel looked like a better option. Very unique spot though. Buzzing and entertaining
