My first review of Katz's a couple of years ago was very negative and I was sincere at the time. In the past year I have been cohersed to return to Katz's on two occasions and I must say my attitude has changed for the better. They have improved their accessibility issues by offering seating downstairs and allowing access to... More

I have been coming to Kats since they first came to Houston and I am a fan. I love the delli sandwich and the value for how large they are is great. The only thing is (as many reviews state) is the hit or miss service...mainly miss. To me...that is just poor management.

Was in the area and because of the deli's reputation for good sandwiches gave it a try. We ordered the corned beef brisket, to go, sandwich was good. My gripe with this restaurant even though we were in there for about 15 is the wait-staff. Most seemed to be more interested in socializing with each rather than customer service. Stood... More

I love the friend pickles and Yankee pot roast sandwich! If you are in Houston, you should definitely check this place out!

Had matzoball soup for the first time and I may not be spoiled for life. It was amazing. Others had their huge sandwhiches. You have to love any place that has a huge vat of pickles out for you to grab!

The food was greasy and the server messed up our order….so I have nothing positive to say. I regret that we invested our one Houston meal at this establishment.

Had lunch on May 10, 2014. Waited for 15 minutes for a table which is okay. Staff was stressed too many customers not enough wait staff. Waited for water, beers and food. Asked the host when leaving what what is the problem today? He mentioned that it was graduation and mothers day weekend-management should had been prepared.

I love pastrami and I should have known better than to order it in Houston!! I thought since it was called Katz's maybe, somehow, I would magically be transported to the lower east side of NYC. Even the rye bread was gummy. The meat was fatty and greasy. After I opened the sandwich and cut the fat out I was... More

Katz's is one of our regular stops in the Montrose area. The food is superb and the service is too! The deserts are drop-dead-beautiful.
