    It’s good. The pastrami on rye is something you have to try. A bit pricey but worth the experience.

    I had my first Pastrami on Rye here years ago! It felt like Christmas when my grandpa told me to "go get my own"....I now know why. Greed isn't always a bad thing. Thank you Katz's!

    Like I even need to tell you to get the pastrami. Also good: hot dogs and the potato pancakes at breakfast hours.

    Delicious Pastrami, but crazy expensive and filled with tourists. Such is the price of fame.

    Get the half sandwich (Pastrami and Rye) and soup unless you're hungry - then go for full sandwich.

    In 127 years, little has changed. Katz's remains one of New York's—and the country's—essential delis. Order at the counter, and don't forget to tip your slicer—your sandwich will be better for it. Read more

    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

    Yeah, Katz's Deli is usually overrun with tourists, but it's also one of the city's most cherished icons, and, hell, the food isn't half bad, either. Read more

    Pastrami and corned beef on rye with Russian dressing and cole slaw. Wash it down with a Dr Brown's black cherry soda. If you can do handle it, you're a true new yorker.

    It's all about the pastrami on rye at this famous deli. Take your ticket stub, walk to the right counter, get your food, and chow down. Don't lose that ticket stub though or it'll cost ya!

    Super crowded, super touristy, still delish. Bring a buddy and split a pastrami on rye. There's table service, but there are also self-serve tables hiding in the back. DON'T LOSE YOUR TICKET!

    The turkey is like thanksgiving turkey, so don't underestimate. After trying all the sandwiches, though, it's clear why pastrami is its most famous offering.

    The pastrami sandwich is the best! They usually just put mustard with it. If you order a turkey sandwich, try it with the Russian sauce!

    Just a suggestion for tourists... Tip (ie leave a gratuity) the Amazing Counter folks, they work extremely hard... and if you take care of them they may give you a "locals" portion.... ;-)

    Come at off hours to avoid a line, split a pastrami and don't forget the pickles. Classic.

    The pastrami sandwich and pickles were delicious, but still felt overpriced at almost $20. Egg cream was also good.

    We had super grumpy waitress that we were forced to tip twice - 20% incl, as we were warned bc we were 6, but then she chased us screaming we didn't tip her, so we did again. later we saw it was incl.

    It’s hard to ignore a classic: kosher beef weenies, griddled ’til the natural casing crisps, and smothered in onions and mustard (or chili, if your stomach can take it at this point). Read more

    Nothing beats the authenticity of their products. Their pastrami is aged 30 days &what a remarkable sandwich it makes! It’s the best I have ever had so far...”Katz’s and that’s all!”

    The pastrami on rye lives up to the hype. It might seem overpriced until you see its size. The pickles are stellar too.

    Katz's is famous for its pastrami sandwich. It is actually very good. Very. Though, i think it is quite overpriced (around 20$).
