The food and the service were really good. Healthy options available. I would highly recommend it for lunch or dinner with family and friends. Big portions and their fries rock!!!!!

Like all deli's, the bread is soft. Wrong bread for deli's but Houston never seems to get it. . The Borscht is beet juice texture that people could buy from a store. Cannot think of anything I liked there to say it was a good deli.

I like that they are open all the time 24 7 Katz's never closes but the food is very average. As an ex New Yorker I would go to Kenny and ziggys for authentic New York deli

Thought I would try the place as it was recommended by friends. Nice décor, was promptly greeted and shown to my table. It all went down hill from there. My waitress could have cared less and acted as if I was and inconvenience. After what seemed an eternity to get a glass of water and utensils, order taken with no... More

The first step is to admit you have a problem. The problem is whether to A). Order the Oreo Cookie Milkshake or B) Order the Oreo Cookie Cheesecake Milkshake. Option A is simple and delicious. Option B is everything A is -- but they just toss in a huge hunk of Oreo Cookie Cheesecake and grind it up into A.... More

This place gives you an authentic NY deli experience in one sense -- you will pay $15 for a sandwich and then be treated with indifference by the staff. My promised 15 minute take-out order turned into 45 minutes because the counter staff could not be bothered to let me know that my order was in one of the Styrofoam... More

Great if you are looking for dogs or a sandwich. I had the chili cheese and my husband had the Reuben. My son had two foot longs with just cheese. One was not enough had to go back and order another. I had onion rings and they were good. The fries are the thick steak fries. We do not really... More

Waited a long time, no one in line, ignored by hostess. Finally got a table then never saw a waiter. We finally just got up and left, with the hostess giving us a chipper "bye" as we hit the door. Never again.

They offer a great lunch special, and the servings are huge (and delicious!) Mac n cheese needed a little more cheese though. Would go back again.

I got the best Reuben sandwich I have had, outside a little deli on Los Angeles. The bread was just right piled high with corner beef and just the right amount of kraut and dressing. So yummy. Oh. The cheese cake want bad either.
