Slow service, high prices. $ 1.45 for a bagel is excessive in my opinion. Add butter for a mere $ .90, not for me. I had a tuna melt which was dry, my wife had soup and chicken sandwich which was also dry. Highly rated but over rated for me, we arrived at 11 AM, well before any crowd, left... More

A great place for pastrami on rye, bagels and lox, breakfast. The Ken's special if fantastic! I think that the chicken soup and the matzo are very mediocre, however. This is a fun place to sit and watch people. Also has a pick-up deli with good desserts and bagel dogs.

a great little deli. This is the third time I've visited and have never been disappointed. Had their GREAT pastrami Reuben this time...a huge sandwich and although a little pricey, you get your money's worth.

My husband and I had finished touring the Rose and Japanese Gardens and were ready for some dinner. We went to this deli for some corned beef and pastrami sandwiches. We had potato latkes for an appetizer. This food was so good. I couldn't finish my sandwich since it was huge, so I took it back to the hotel. The... More

Kenny & Zuke's was just down the street from my hotel, so I had brunch or breakfast each of the 4 days I was in Portland. The cheese blintzes with fruit compote (mixed berries, not too sweet) was amazing -- maybe the best cheese blintzes I've eaten. Other days, when I was not so hungry, I just had a bagel,... More

So good! Very delicious bagel and lox. So good went back a second time. Fresh squeezed OJ. And close to Powell's books. Excellent all around.

We had a tasty supper at this deli where the sandwiches are excellent. By the end of the day on a Sunday evening though it's apparent they're wanting to shut up and go home. The place was a bit under-staffed and a few tables hadn't been cleared. But the food was good, and that pastrami - so excellent. This is... More

If you're hungry but not enough for a whole meal in a restaurant, go to K&Z's. If you don't compare it to any other deli but take it on it's own merits, you won't be disappointed. Go for the pastrami on rye - it's deliciously dripping with goodies. And the pickle isn't bad either.

They had my favorite on the menu for breakfast - bagel with lox - and they even had a choice of lox! It was done perfectly. My companion also enjoyed his meal quite a bit. Prices were good and service was good.
