We were a large party and have to say that not matter how hard we tried to get a good service, it didn't happen, had to wait for silverware and food for a long time and the food wasn't bad but it wasn't the best...More

Not the same as Katz in Manhattan of course but still worth the visit and very tasty deli treats. Great service too. And they don't pronounce "Houston" the same as "Houston" in NYC!

The hot dogs are all beef and really good.. they are right size, they overload the sauerkraut though. Stuffed potato fresh, felt like it was recently made. The half chicken was older, you could tell it had been held for some time. Very little seasoning.....More

The best aspect of this New York style diner is the 24 hour service! In a city where restaurants staying open till late is a rarity, Katz is a rare & precious find. we were lucky to be recommended the fried pickles for appetizer, which...More
