Love this place! Love the potato pancakes are like grandma used to make! Phenomenal kugel and pastrami. Just go and experience a deli serving Eastern European food the way it was meant to be served. Great atmosphere. Large portions.

Come hungry and not wanting to cook your next meal because it is almost guaranteed that you will be taking some home with you. Huge portions of the best deli in the Texas if not the country. Quality is high and so is value considering the portions. Do not be embarrassed to share a meal. Make sure you save room... More

Kenny & Ziggy’s is an old New York style deli. The menu is huge and the portions even more so. We both ordered sandwiches and took half back to our hotel for dinner. A single piece of 7-layer cake yielded seven portions!! Quality was excellent and the place was busy, busy, busy. A highlight of our stay in Houston and... More

I've had sandwiches in NY both better and much cheaper than this. The whole point of a NY style sandwich is that it's a great value, but this wasn't. Burnt fries for 6 bucks a pop and 19$ sandwiches where they charge extra for cheese! The rye bread crusts were way too hard. Maybe we caught them on a bad... More

Great Corned Beef sandwiches. Lot's of meat and a yummy sauce. Loved it . It's crowded but the service is fast and the people are very nice. Ambience so so but OK after a long day of shopping.

As travelers to Houston, we get to Kenny and Ziggy's about twice a decade, always with great anticipation of a traditional deli experience. The highlight this time was the borsch, combined with sour cream, that made my "hummm . . ." automatic. We must always have a grilled pastrami sandwich and lox, bagels and cream cheese. The coconut cream pie... More

Been wanting to try this place ever since seeing the movie "Deli Man". Owner Ziggy Gruber is featured in the film. It reminded me of the first time I went to Carnegie Deli (may it rest in peace). I usually get a corned beef/brisket combo when I deli and I have to say it's among the best I've ever had.... More
