    Everybody suggests Katz and there's a reason why. The pastrami on rye is absolutely worth it

    They give you samples of the meats. Your eyes are definitely bigger than your appetite here. They also have pickled tomatoes. Heavenly.

    Get in line and get your pastrami sandwich. A must stop in New York and ask how the business model works...or doesn't work. A big tourist stop too so don't be in a hurry.

    You just can't beat the Pastrami here! Be sure to ask them to throw some half dills on your plate, and if you're feeling adventurous try the kugel!

    I've eaten a lot of pastrami in my life and nothing has ever come close. You may think $20 is steep. It's not. It's a steal. Just DO NOT LOSE YOUR TICKET.
