Good Sandwich Spot

If you're looking for an interesting sandwich combo in Rice Village, this is a great spot. Its fairly small, but its quick service. Very relaxed atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. Their menu is limited, pretty much sandwiches, sliders and beer. Its a great spot to stop if you're by... read more

The reuben is bigger than your head and you'll force yourself to eat it all because it's so good you won't want it to go to waste. I used to eat here almost daily when I worked in the Village and everything I ordered was phenomenal. Fresh cold cuts, soft bread, great service. This place is an institution.

Growing up back east, I have a very clear idea of what a superb Reuben should be...thinking delis on Canal Street in NY, or the old Homewood Deli in Baltimore (RIP). So, when we walked into Kahn's this afternoon, I had such high hopes when I saw the big sign about the classic Reuben and envisioned a new Houston fave.... More

Not sure why deli's in Houston insist on soft bread and crust on sandwiches, may as well buy Wonder bread and thin slices of store beef. They fail to understand that bread in a sandwich is equal to the meat. Not a deli standard meal.

We enjoyed our visit to Kahn's Deli. The menu was extensive and original. The atmosphere was delightful too. The food was a little on the pricy side, but very good. The restrooms could have used some cleaning, as a wood roach was lying "belly-up" in the hallway just outside of the restroom. Also there were mosquitoes swarming in the restroom.... More

I make a point of going to Kahn's every time I get to Houston - and it has never let me down. The owner, James is fantastic. If you want a great Reuben, this place is the best!

Kahn's Deli has gone through several incarnations over the past few years. And now, this long-time Houston establishment has transformed into the sleekest, hippest version yet. With rustic brick walls punctuated by graffiti art, well-configured booths and tall tables, and a dazzling enamel-red bar, Kahn's Deli has enhanced the ambience without compromising the mouth-watering selections. Using the freshest, widest variety... More

A Deli from the golden age of delis. They do everything the old fashioned way. The reuben here is simply a heavenly thing.
