We got the pastrami sandwich on rye and it is the best sandwich we've had out here in NYC! My husband split the sandwich and it was plenty. Line can get long but Don't let that intimidate you. There are many ordering stations. Have one person find a table while the other waits in line to order. Tables are hard to find so scope out who is leaving soon and stand nearby. You pay on your way out after you have eaten.

Overpriced deli sandwiches, maintenance and cleanlinesd need attention. Overall a nice experience and ticked off on the NYC list.

Katz's Deli is the best spot for Pastrami that I have ever been in my life. The portions are gigantic, so one sandwich will be enough to feed the whole family. #musteatnyc

I'm really not a big fan of meat but the meat here is particularly fatty. It's a classic place though so it's worth stopping by if they haven't shut down yet

Absolutely the best! A 'must' if you are visiting New York. There is a wait, and it's really crowded once you're inside, but the authenticity of NYC and the taste of the food CANNOT be beat. Don't miss it!

A historic spot for lovers of food and NYC. Grab a ticket, but don't lose it! Come and enjoy the mouth-watering famous roast beef sandwiches. Be sure to come hungry, because this place doesn't know the definition of small portions!

I didn't want to fall into the touristy trap by coming here but it happened a night after partying in the LES. Their sandwiches are huge well at least the Ruben that I had and it tasted amazing. The meat was so good. It's a location is quite ideal, out of the hustle of the busy of Manhattan's spotlight. The wall are covered with photos of famous or well know people that have visited over the years.

Best Pastrami and Corned Beef sandwiches with the most old New York vibe around! Intense, loud, delicious. Famous words spoken here: "I"ll have what she's having"

This place is an establishment in New York culture that isn't one to miss. Their pastrami sandwich is to DIE for. Probably the best I've ever had. But this place isnt cheap. Try 20$ for their signature sandwich, and if you want sides, your bill will be at least 30$. However, you get what you pay for, both in quality and quantity (it might be best to get a sandwich for two)

The best and most gigantic pastrami sandwich I've ever had. I can see why foodies rave about this place. The ordering system is unique. When you walk in you get a ticket that is used to write down the cost of your meal. You walk over to the counter and get a tasting of the pastrami and order the sandwich the way you like it. You then pay at the cashier with your ticket or you give them your blank ticket if you decide not to buy anything or you get fined if you lost your ticket - so don't lose it. The sandwich is about $20, which is really expensive for a sandwich, but you get what you pay for and its absolutely delicious. Katz has been around since 1888 and is a staple in this city!

The best Jewish Delicatessen in the universe. The corn beef and the pastrami sandwiches are too good to describe. I have enjoyed take out at work many times and is a NYC treat.

So delicious and unique/iconic to New York! One of the most unique things about this place is that they let you try the meats before you order. These Samples are huge as well as extremely tender and delicious

Iconic restaurant that you have to visit when in NYC. The sandwiches are ridiculously good. And you can occasionally run into a star or two when there.
