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

    Pastrami is a no-brainer. Get your hands dirty.

    24/7 piles of pastrami. Get it to share - it's impossible to eat it on your own. Try the pickled green tomatoes!

    Walked all the way from 46th east and had to wait half an hour in the rain to get a piece of this. Worth the wait enuf said...

    Just the most classic ambiance- you are just feeling the SOUL of NYC when you come here. The pastrami is my favorite order here. HUGE stacks of meat on thin bread slices is the NY deli style sandwich.

    Go with the classic: pastrami (or corned beef) on rye with a slash of mustard. Wash down with a Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray. Classic.

    A true New York original, absolutely order the incredible pastrami, but be warned about re-enacting Meg Ryan's famous performance from 'When Harry Met Sally' filmed here!

    Essential NYU: Try their pastrami or reuben sandwiches after a night out in the Lower East Side.

    Of course the pastrami on rye is amazing. But try a reuben with pastrami... you won't regret it!

    Don't bother with the Corned Beef. The Pastrami is a Must — It's "What She's Having."

    Turkey on rye was awesome. Corned beef was apparently incredible.

    Very crowded, make sure you're not coming in the noon. The food is good but a bit too greasy and the serving is only capable go two persons! Nice waiter anyway!

    Pastrami and corned beef are some of the best you’ll ever behold. Stand at the counter while the man behind it hand-slices your pastrami, and offers you a taste.

    Best pastrami sandwich you'll ever eat. Period. :) Sammies are rich and fairly large, shareable for 2 depending on your appetite. Pair that pastrami in rye with Katz's dark ale. YUMMM-O!!!

    Cash is paid on the way out - grab a ticket, order then sit. Pay on the way out and don't lose your ticket ! Highly recommend the pastrami on rye. Love looking at the celebrity photos too.

    If you're here for the first time and you don't get a pastrami sandwich, why did you even bother?
