“Always bustling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Decided on a sandwich for lunch. This is the best cornered beef I can find now in Houston. We also had the chicken soup, cole slaw, potato salad and cheese cake. Great service!

“Best Deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

From the moment you step inside Kenny and Ziggy's you feel like you have been transported to an old style New York Deli. The sights and sounds bring back all the memories of past delis long fading but renewed in Houston.
The sandwiches and fish platters are the most generous I have ever experienced. All this brought to you by the attentive servers that make this experience complete. As you dine you might even have Ziggy stop by and say hello.
Whether you live in Houston are just visiting. Kenny and Ziggy's is a must.

“Old Style New York Deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The minute you step inside the door you are transported from Houston to NYC. Fixtures, set-up, servers dress, deli cases all reminded me of old-fashioned Jewish delis. Large portions of delicious food. Wished I could have gone back for lunch while in Houston, but thoroughly enjoyed my bagel and lox. My husband had the blintzes and there were the best ever! Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. Just the right amount of cheese filling and blueberries on top. Google directions were a bit confusing. Deli is to the east of Westheimer.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Very nice food and service, the sandwiches were $$ but huge easily one is shared by two very hungry people. Typical NYC deli atmosphere and menu.

“Some of the Best Deli Food in Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Outside of NYC, this is one of the best delis you can experience. Not cheap but worth the price. Be prepared to wait for a table. Centrally located across from the Galleria. You will love it.
