“Fun lunch restaurant”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

We went as a group of four and it was a fun lunch experience. Not fancy. Sandwiches are huge. Could easily share one and still be full. It was crowded but still could find a place to sit. The guy who made our meals was great and kept giving us samples of different meats.

“Food”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Sandwichs are huge and the hand carved meats are delicious. If you by pass the waiter service, you can almost fill up on the samples as they make your sandwich.

“Still best pastrami on rye in town!”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Although not as cheap as it used to be, Katz's is still worth the trip.

“Dirty and crowded”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

A real hype. Dirty restaurant, rude servers, lousy corned beef. Meg Ryan wasnt faking an orgasm, she was getting sick to her stomach over having to eat at Katz's.
