This place has the BEST pot roast, sandwiches, black and white cookies and beef bacon! That's right, you read that correctly....beef bacon! It will change your life. This place is a Houston gem!

My friends are from Austin and had been in mourning for Katz's since it closed....so when we drove past there was literally no discussion...we were going in. As a London girl I had no expectations...and was still blown away. Easily the best Bloody Mary ever. The fried pickle spears....which are not an english delicacy....were amazing! And an insane pastrami and... More

My son wanted to try the fried pickles, I wanted to try the Reuben see what all the hype is about. There is a kids menu but my son eats like an adult so he got a small Reuben. I am transfixed I mean all this time I could have indulged in this New York style delight. I like eating... More

It's open 24 Hours and the food is fantastic! Get the Broccoli Cheese soup and Reuben! Don't let the wait time intimidate you, it's worth it.

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 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!!!!!

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
