Wasn't expecting too much. I've been to Katz's deli in NY and I've been to Primantis in Pittsburgh. This is the closest thing I've had to Katz's since I've started traveling. Awesome place. Great staff. Cool decorations.

Always a multiple stop for any trip to Manhattan. Great homemade soups and sandwiches for a nice lunch/dinner to a fun evening out with friends.

I have eaten here many times and it is always good. There are only about 7 tables inside so you might have to wait at the bar or stand around for a moment until a seat opens, but it never seems to take very long. The atmosphere is great. I love looking around at all the clocks and lamps and... More

Clearly a college student favorite, but it was quiet when I visited around 8 pm. The hot pastrami sandwich and hummous appetizer were among the best I've had in years.

My husband and I had eaten here many years ago and we were looking forward to taking our kids there for lunch. All I have to say is it was JUST OK! The food wasn't horrible actually it was good. Small portions...Ham and cheese proclaimed that it was heaping... if heaping is a few slices then great. As for drinks... More

Loved the decor and atmosphere, hummus and naan bread were great, sandwich ok (perhaps a little overpriced?). My husband loved his pumpkin beer and the service was great!

If you come to Manhattan, you have to go to Rock-A Belly! There is nothing that is not good on the menu but you definitely have to try their CCQ. The atmosphere is unique and the staff is wonderful.
