    I ranks this as NYC's best of the best. Yes the pastrami is amazing but, try having it as a Rubin Sandwich!! Now that is heaven!!!!

    Dolling our the best pastrami and rye since 1888. Brave the long times and temperamental service to experience this one-of-a-kind New York classic. 5/5

    Here with "Tron" he says the pastrami sandwich is amazing. I had a delicious split pea soup which is a great choice for the vegetarians. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Worth a visit but I don’t think I’d go back. The vibe is manic. Pastrami sandwich was very good but not out of this world. I think it’s just a fun one time experience to come here.

    Great experience and lovely (if rushed) staff, but the prices are a total rip off. Worth sitting down to avoid the scrum at the counter.

    You've got to get the pastrami sandwich with fries! IMO one sandwich is enough for two, it's so big!

    You must try pastrami sandwich in this place! Ask for mix of pastrami and corn beef

    So delicious. Get a different sandwich than your friend and go halvsies so that you can try two different meats.

    A classic, it is quite pricey ($18 for the pastrami sandwich) but definitely worth a visit

    The pastrami sandwich is delicious- get it with a side order of fries for an incredibly satisfying drunchies meal

    Pastrami sandwich on rye is amazing, pickles are great but the pea soup is the best thing ever!

    Be prepared for time travel! This deli is a time capsule, that serves take-out or dine in crazy-large pastrami sandwiches.

    All classic New York establishment. The pastrami and corned beef sandwiches are outstanding. Great pickles, too.

    They don´t close at the weekend. It´s one of the best ideas if you need a tongue sandwich at four or five o'clock on Saturday morning.

    If its your first time, make sure you're sober. They have this whole orange ticket situation that is very hard to process after a night out.

    It's the place to go for some of the best pastrami on the planet. Grab a hot pastrami and a cream soda and enjoy.TIP: order your food to go to avoid the long cashier line

    Be sure to tip the counter guys before they make your sandwich. If they are any good, your sandwich will double in size!

    Great Pastrami on Rye. Ask for it moist. Plus ask for pickled tomatoes and sour pickles too. The well done hot dogs are to best in NYC.

    Ahhhh, Katz's. Where Harry met Sally. And where we met pastrami. Giant piles of juicy brisket coated with spices and dripping with goodness barely held together by a couple of slices of rye bread.

    It goes without saying; it can get busy. Expect lines inside and out during lunch hours – bring a buddy to grab a table once inside.

    Pastrami is a masterpiece. I d suggest swiss cheese to add some other flavor to the sandwich ( it is a tough one to eat, not everyone's stomach can handle this meat) Pickles is a good sidekick.

    It's confusing/chaotic/intimidating, however staff was nice. Bring cash and don't lose your tix they give you when you enter.

    The pastrami Reuben is the absolute best sandwich I've ever tasted. A mysterious and extremely playful little sandwich.

    Best enjoyed without the crowds. Split a Pastrami on rye bread with Swiss cheese and musturd to end the night or satisfy some hunger pangs before heading back out on the Lower East Side on a weekend.

    If you can't choose between two sandwiches, just get a half and half sandwich! Half pastrami/half Reuben is a killer combo.

    Steaming fresh pastrami served with house made mustard and pickles. Very generous side serving of coleslaw too for $4.75. Only thing not house made is the soda!
