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.

We recently stopped here for lunch on our way home from Indianapolis. The restaurant is easy access on and off of Route 70. Large selections of sandwiches, freshly made and grilled. We did not try any of the salads, although they had several to choose from. A selection of dill or garlic pickle comes with your sandwich that you help yourself from the barrel. Large selection of deserts, we had the brownie pie, which was about 3" high and delicious. Delicious lunch in less than 45 minutes and we were back on the road. So much better than a chain restaurant lunch when traveling.

Have been here a couple times over the past year hoping to see what everyone is excited about.

Has not happened yet and will not be going back to give it a 3rd chance.

The pickle barrel is unique but if you are looking for a great Reuben go elsewhere.

We try and support local, non chain vendors but not this one.

I have gotten a better Reuben at Cracker Barrel.

If you want to see what the buzz is about, check it out…….you will have a definite opinion one way or the other.

The sandwiches here are very good and fresh! You can order large or small, but the large is not enormous or anything. They have a very large selection to choose from. The sides are ok. We got the macaroni salad and potato salad and they tasted like any that you can get at a Kroger's deli. But the portions are large, big enough to share. We had a piece of apple pie for dessert and it was pretty good. Overall, 2 large sandwiches, 2 sides, 2 drinks, and a dessert cost about $45. We felt it was a little pricey, but they do give you a lot of meat on the sandwiches. The eating area is not that great; cramped and somewhat run-down. Maybe it is supposed to be rustic and charming, I don't know. The staff is very nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place, if you don't mind that it's a little pricey.

This deli certainly charges a great deal for a sandwich or salad, and I"m willing to pay a great deal if the quality is exceptional. However, the quality was not. My salad had what looked to be day-old avocado on top, and the meats and cheese were unexceptional. Also, my luncheon date felt that the restrooms were unclean. If one were to compare this restaurant to another major deli, say Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, one would be very disappointed. It's not all that.

great deli, way to over priced. I would go to a cheaper deli that has the same quality. My husband loved the pickles. I am not into pickes.
