First time here with friends. Had a lunch meeting, and I ordered the Reuben sandwich with a side order of very good onion rings, another friend ordered the pot of chicken and dumplings. The pot had great flavor and lots of vegetables. However, my friend spotted a bit of plastic sticking out, he pulled on it, and we were all... More

I had to get my share of matzo ball soup and chopped liver when I last went to Houston. Delicious and large servings. Open 24/7 with ample parking in two lots too.

24 hr jewish deli with a bar. Went there around 12am had a few beers and a nice pastrami sandwich. Had the small so, not much pastrami but was tasty and the whole pickle was delicious.

This was close to a five rating, but too many melons in my mixed fruit and a mis-delivery of my main course lost a point. The French Dip sandwich was perhaps the best I've ever had, with thinly sliced, perfectly cooked roast beef on a true French bread roll. Mmmm. My wife's matzo ball soup was perfectly seasoned and chock... More

You know what they say, first impressions are important. Living in Houston my whole life, and finally decided to try Katz. Walked in and told the wait time was 10 minutes. After waiting, a group came in after us, and they sat them first. After this, I don't think anything they do, or cook is going to make me happy.... More

We went dressed VERY casually after a hard day's work on a rent house we own in the area. We were made to feel at home, got the comfy booth we requested and had a great waiter. We both ordered Reuben sandwiches, but at Katz's, you have several options on how your Reuben is created. Amazing, awesome, delicious...right down to... More

Stopped by for a skinny Reuben, perfect size. Very tasty. Ava was a great server. Food came quickly and she kept the water filled. Nice to see a manager, Alex, checking to see if everything is fine.

Somehow it seems slightly grubby. My salad ("Buffalo Wing" - I should have ordered a Reuben) was an unnatural orange color and relied excessively on iceberg. As usual, the waiter asked if everything was all right. I was nice about it but was clear that it wasn't. No effort whatever to have a manager discuss, comp a dessert, or the... More

On 09/17/16, a few friends and I celebrated my daughter's 20th birthday party there. Though the young lady who I had spoken to in planning our visit wasn't there when we arrived, we had a wonderful time. My daughter always wants to go some place she has not eaten before and had heard a lot about Katz's. I had called... More
