    Not sure what all the hubbub is about except for the late hours for chilling after a night out. The pastrami on its own is worth eating but the hype, don't get it.

    In an interesting move, all of the combos are a worse deal than just getting the pastrami sandwich. The pastrami sandwich is great.

    This sandwich place not only has amazing food, but delivery! So if you're feeling a little lazy, Katz's Delicatessen has the perfect option (re: pastrami). Let's just say we'll have what she's having. Read more

    Don't lose your ticket. The pastrami is AMAZING. Pickles and soup are mediocre so don't waste your appetite on that.

    Not feeling pastrami? The turkey sandwich is probably the best I've ever had—so moist! Ask for it with mustard if you're getting it to go, otherwise you can add it yourself at your table.

    One of New York's most essential delis. The sandwiches are massive, so they are best when shared. Don't forget to tip your slicer — your sandwich will be better for it.

    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.

    The Pastrami Sandwich tasted good, but the price and the environment are totally overrated.

    Brisket Ruben is awesome. Meat is so tender it's crazy! The potato latkes are beyond good. I could have them all day everyday
  • Sofia P.
    The table service is slow and hostile. The bagels and lox were fresh and delicious! Can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches.

    Don't get the cheese steak and any egg cream. Get all of the deli items and you'll love them!

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

    The pastrami on rye will set you back about a million dollars (OK, $20), but it’s twice as big as your apartment. Definitely worth getting at least once. Read more

    Their pastrami is like butter! It just melts in your mouth! Get the matzo ball soup. Don't lose your ticket and tip the counter guys!

    Big sandviches. Brisket is delicious. Pastrami is also delicious. Actually everything is delicious. Worths waiting. Self service. Prices very low for new york. Tasting compliment is even big :)

    Split a pastrami sandwich (dare you to try to finish a whole one), fries, and coleslaw. If you're not getting a beer, try the Katz's iced tea. Hot tip - pickles come with the sandwiches.

    Home of the most overpriced and unsavory sandwiches in all of NYC. You can do much better with $20. Like going to Russ & Daughters.

    Katz's serves New York's favorite pastrami sandwich. It's not a sloppy pile of beef and as Robert Sietsema notes, "the flavor is emphatically smokier" than other popular versions served around town. Read more

    It's open 24 hours, so if you leave the bars at 4AM and still want pastrami this is your place. New York is amazing sometimes.
  • Damian B.
    You could put that brown mustard in a glass and I would drink it 👌. Plenty of seating in the back around from the counters

    Try their pastrami or reuben sandwiches after a night out in the Lower East Side.
  • Brandon F.
    You can't beat Katz's pastrami. Beat the crowds and get it to go; walk across the street and enjoy the park while you grub down on what made Katz's famous.
  • Bob S.
    Pastrami baby!

    My favorite deli in the city. Usually pretty crowded but the line moves quickly. Pretty simply put, the pastrami on rye and turkey on rye are the best sandwiches in the city.

    Best pastrami sandwich I have eaten that's for sure. Don't think you can have anything else as a side because even an elephant would have difficulty doing so.

    Iconic deli, but Harry and Ida's has better pastrami.
