My husband, son and I stopped here for a dinner while in Columbus. We weren't looking for a fancy dinner, just a good deli shop. The deli is New York style - my husband I shared the Rueben and my son had a lox and cream cheese sandwich. Everything was delicious and I would t hesitate to eat there again.

It's just what you need when you're hungry, hangry, or hungover. Food is always fresh and top-notch and the portion sizes are more than fair (don't opt for the "large" unless you're literally starving). People are very friendly, and it has been a landmark for many years. They're a little more expensive than a chain, but certainly no more expensive... More

I don't understand why people rave about this place. And $15.00 for a 'deli size' reuben that is seriously undersized??!!! For me personally it's worth the hour and a half to drive down to Cincinnati and get an Izzy's Reuben. At 8.99 it's way bigger, comes with a potato pancake, and I still have 5 bucks to spend on filling... More

This great Jewish style deli has recently been sold. We know it for it's great overstuffed sandwiches and Dr. Brown sodas. Side dishes tend to be a little pricey. You get pickles out of pickle barrel! Noisy because it's popular and busy. Hope that Katzinger's continues with its great food. By the way, Bill Clinton ate here and has a... More

I went here based on the reviews and Katzinger's Trip Advisor ranking, and I disagree with the majority. My ruben was not the best that I have ever had, and really, for what it was, it was expensive. Just a little sandwich for around thirteen dollars with no potato cake or anything.

Everything was delicious. Bread on the sandwiches we had was to die for. I had egg salad ( never had it before) and it was soooo good. Everybody in our party had something different and all were happy with their choice. Don't leave without dessert!

I've been visiting this place since the 1980"s. Located in German Village it is both a treat and a delight to visit. From the monstrous size of their sandwiches to their barrels of free homemade pickers it's not hard to realise why so many people love the place . If you are coming at lunch time be prepared for a...

We stumbled on this deli and so glad we did. Food was delicious, we shared a large sandwich and it was more than enough. Great desert, loved the blondie.

I've been here several times, this was the first time in a bunch of years. Still delicious. I love their reuben. The corned beef is sliced very thin not a lot of fat, the rye bread is very good too. My daughter enjoyed the tuna salad sandwich. It looked very good. Enjoy!

We saw this place the day before when we were at Pistacia Vera just down the street (GO THERE TOO, best French pastries, ever). We came back the next day to explore German Town a little more and decided to try Katzinger's. I had never tried knish or latkes before so we ordered sandwiches and both of those items. Overall...

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.
