Katz's is one of those places that you only have to try once in your lifetime. A New York classic that's been featured in movies like Enchanted, When Harry Met Sally, Across the Universe, and Donnie Brasco.
Yes the pastrami and corned beef are EXCELLENT, yes the Rye bread is fluffy and the homemade Russian dressing is great - but can you honestly say for $14 its worth it. I was so sad after leaving Katz. Everyone raves about the huge sandwich's and how its the best corned beef/pastrami in the world..OK OK maybe it was the best Pastrami I can remember eating but I was still hungry after I ate it. My sandwich was no more then a 1/2 lb of meat. You also get a whole plate of pickles which were really good and you get alot surprisingly. They have their own bottled ice tea and that was good too. I really have no reason to go back. It was cool checking out a piece of history Katz opened in 1888( NYs oldest deli). It is good food and worth checking out. But be prepared to be ripped off by NYC history once again.
