I've been to Katzinger's a few times for sandwiches, salads and pastries. The food quality is good and everything I've had has tasted fine, although overpriced. Where I struggle with Katzinger's is their customer service. I have never encountered a friendly staff member in the half dozen times I've been there. They have a long standing business and name recognition... More

On our way from northern Ohio back to Indy, we used Trip Advisor to find a tasty, interesting place for lunch. Katzinger's fit the bill. Big fans of deli food, we, naturally, got a corned beef sandwich & dill pickle, plus a cherry noodle kugel, cole slaw, and drink. The sandwich & pickle were great. I wished the kugel had... More

We dropped by when passing through Columbus. The location is conveniently off I-70 and there is parking blind the building and one block over. I had the small size Reuben, which was only okay. While the flavor was good, the meat was fatty and hard to chew and the hard crust on the rye bread got even harder when grilled.... More

As recommended by other reviewers, we ordered the Reuben sandwich and split it. I'm never a "splitter," but took the reviewers advice and was glad I did. We had the red skin Potato salad, and key lime pie ( the best we've ever had). They had German beer, lots of Jewish food to choose from. Lots of parking is behind... More

We stopped here while passing through Columbus heading east, on the basis of a TripAdvisor review (thanks for that!). It's right off Route 70. To begin with, I love delis - I visit them wherever I go (including New York and Philadelphia, both great locations). Katzinger's is a real, old-style, honest-to-goodness deli. Choose from sandwiches, breakfast, smoked fish, knishes, latkes,... More

My family and I were looking forward to having a great corned beef sandwich while on vacation. We were disappointed at the quality of the meat, there was a lot of fat. We are Irish and love our corned beef, very disappointed! The matzo ball soup was good, the best item were the free pickles - delicious.

Oh my goodness!!!! This place serves the most delicious food. We ordered and split original king-size reuben. Even though we split this sandwich we ended up taking food home. All of the employees we interacted with very helpful and very nice.

This is truly the real deal. Have lived in Baltimore and spent more than my share of time in New York a good corned beef sandwich has a special place in my heart. I now live in a near food desert in mid Ohio. A 80 mile drive for corned beef nirvana is worth the trip. And the barrels of... More

Description
Katzinger's Delicatessen - Family owned and operated since 1984!
Our sandwiches are really big - HUGE in fact. We know some of you can't eat that much so we also offer a smaller sandwich - we refer to it as Normal. All sandwiches come with a free help-yourself-from-the-pickle-barrel dill. Choose from traditional "old" or garlicky "new". And we offer plenty of freshly prepared-to-order salads and desserts to tempt you, too. You should leave Katzinger's wanting to come back again - and soon!

We're very proud of our food - Black Angus corned beef prepared by Sy Ginsburg's United Meat and Deli using Sy's special secret ingredient ( many, many tons later and he still won't tell us what it is!)...Chickens raised by Amish families at Gerber Farms... Imported Emmentaler, the original Swiss cheese... Breads made especially for us and delivered daily by Mediterra Bakehouse in Pittsburgh and we hand slice every loaf... Bagels from Sammy's delivered fresh daily... Gluten free bread from Eban bakery of Grove City . Our mayo is Hellmann's. We oven roast our turkeys to moist perfection. We dress our roast beef with lots of garlic and rosemary and roast it to a beautifully pink medium rare. We marinate our brisket for 48 hours before slow roasting to fork tenderness. Our chicken, tuna and egg salads are made with memorable recipes. These are just a few of the fine ingredients we use to create the deli foods of Katzinger's Delicatissen.
