    Probably overrated

  • Gabriel d.

    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.

    You know, it's a must on your visit to NYC. Try to order the classic Pastrami Sandwich, if you don't eat much, share the sandwich with a friend. Don't forget to enjoy your side pickles.

    No doubt that this place is a very pricey tourist destination, but there is absolutely no chance you walk out unhappy after eating the pastrami on rye

  • Emiliano S.

    Their pastrami is something you must try at least once in your life. A bit crowdy, but it's there since over 125 years.

    I personally think it's worth it to wait for waiter service.

    Do me a favor and just share the sandwich. No matter how hungry you are, I don't think you'll ever finish.

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

  • Thomas P.

    I felt this place is overhyped. Confusing ticket system and quite expensive. Go to Mighty Quinn's a few blocks uptown instead.

    Pastrami on rye is a classic, good for breakfast

    Tugra Gönden · September 23
  • Frederik V.

    You must try the reuben with pastrami but that's no secret. If you don't love fatty meat (the positive way) ask for an extra bread to reduce the overwhelming ratio of pastrami and bread.

  • Simon L.

    The best pastrami sandwich in NYC. I prefer the pastrami but if it's your first time, you might want to order the half and half with corned beef to find your preference. Both are amazing.

    The hype. The hype is earned.

    Charley Todd · September 1
  • Kathy M.

    The pastrami sandwich was absolutely amazing; best I've ever had. The only downfall with this place is that it's incredibly overpriced, but at least they give you large portions!

    Enormous amounts of meat between two small slices of bread. Doesn't look fancy, but the turkey sandwich is delicious and can feed two people if you aren't very hungry.

    An institution. Best Pastrami ever .. go easy with the mustard. I like to add coleslaw with that.
