What an amazing place to have a meaty and moist sandwich! Katz is a historic establishment that every visitor to NYC should come and try. If you don't have much time, stand in the cutter line and order the sandwich and meats to go. They will even give you few small pieces to try if you want but do be prepared to stand in a crowd for a bit before getting to the front. As compared to the iconic smoked meat sandwich in Montreal - Schwartz - I would say this is a definite challenger that may take the win! Go try it yourself. Enjoy!

The best place to eat meat sandwich in New York until now. Reuben hot sandwich was so delicious and the ambiance of the place was great. The place was so crowded but suitable for families with kids/infants. Seriously recommended.

Delicious! Do table service first time...so much easier. Snag a ticket and sit down against wall. Feeling NYC-ish? Stand on-line in front of a cutter. Lines are suggestions only so pay attention. Cutter will give you sample after he slices. Don't lick plate. Move to back counter for drinks. Water is against back wall.Sit in center area or back area behind water service. Cash pays at front, credit pays at drink counter. Seats are tight and full so go before no later than 11 or take your chances. 1/2 sandwich plus side will fill you until next day. Feeling adventurous: whole sandwich, side, dessert...call a cab. Great food, tourists and locals. Great experience!

You cannot go to New York for the weekend and not go to Katz.
A great New York tradition at least for my family now.

We are not late night people but our 10:00 PM munch was one we will never forget - from entering the restaurant to eating the pickles, the chicken soup was delicious and the Corned Beef sandwich was one we still think about, my 14 and 16 year old will never forget going to Katz!

We made our first visit to Katz’s during a recent visit to NYC. Every accolade bestowed on them is richly deserved, the corned beef and pastrami were fantastic, as were the pickles (sour and half sour), and a personal favorite, the pickled tomatoes. In a real sense, their food is not outrageously expensive. The corned beef or pastrami sandwiches which are around $20, contain more food than anyone needs or should eat at a single meal, in fact, a half sandwich is almost too much. A shared sandwich, at $10/person, is very reasonable given how exquisite the food is.
