Pretty Good Deli

Good place but the Pastrami was a bit thick cut. Comfortable, good selection/ The pickles and slaw provided when requested was very good. My wife had the Kat's special which she really liked and I had the pastrami. The kids did fine there as well.

We are not very picky at 2am. This place is always packed, so expect to wait. I will say that this visit was quicker than normal even with 6 of us. I always go with the Matzah Ball soup and french fries to start and then a sandwich. Its not Kenny and Ziggy's but begger's can't be choosy at 2am.... More

First I would like to say a few things. The place is cute and has an extensive menu. Our waiter was apologetic about our VERY slow service but the place was only half full on a Saturday night and there was no real sign of an excuse. Some of our food was good but their signature sandwich, The Katz, is... More

Went for breakfast with family. Food was delicious but the service left something to be desired. Two member's wished to split an order of cornbeef hash and eggs and asked for one egg hard and the other over easy. The server told them he didn't know if they could do that but he would check with the chef. They also... More

Katz's has been our absolute favorite for years. Very disappointed today. Food ok but usually was very good. over priced, seemed very disorganized and never had visit from the manager. 😞😞

Normally this is one of my favorites. This visit was a bit of a disaster. We waited two minutes to be greeted, then we ordered drinks and they took forever. The excuse was that they were on a turnaround. The food was good and Saul provided excellent service. While it was not the best visit, Brett came to our table... More

My family loves this restaurant. I have tried a different item each time and none have dissapointed. The portions are big and quality is high. My favorite is the grilled salmon dinner. You get a nice size salmon portion on a bed of rice with sides, if you get a dinner salad and a fruit salad I guarantee you will... More

Because of the restaurants proximity to Houston locations that we have other business with we keep going back, once for breakfast and twice for lunch in the last year. All 3 times have been mediocre at best. The corned beef is only OK, potato salad bad, big "New York" sandwich was only big because it was stuffed with 4" of... More

We have always gone to Katz's but we will no longer eat here. The music is so loud you cannot visit with your party - even the waiter cannot hear your order! We were met with a mean stare when we requested that the sound be lowered just a little. Our food arrived cold and the waiter just could not... More
