Great service, good food

Today's lunch at Katz's was a wonderful experience for the four of us.
We were greeted as soon as we entered, seated promptly as we reached the upstairs seating area, which was welcoming, clean and spacious. We picked our desired booth, and were very comfortable in the warm ambiance.
Server Nancy was cheerful and efficient. Our drinks were filled, appetizer served with precision. Soup and sandwich was a good combination. The pea soup stood out as a winner. It was served hot (high temperature), thick with pieces of ham. Corn beef, pastrami and roast beef were done to perfection. They were tasty, yet not too salty like most other places. Fresh bread added to the success of the sandwiches.
This was our first time in the Houston location (we have been to Katz's Austin),
will definitely return when we are in town.

THE BEST!

Katz' never Kloses. The dessert here is to die for, everything is. Try the Reuben sandwich, or the hot wings. Simply the best, also good people watching!

Late Night Craving

Fellow nurse drug me here with her night shift buddies. More units from the hospital began showing up for beer and fried pickles after a long night of work. Sandwichs are huge and tasty. Potato pancakes and beef bacon are to die for. Bar is well stocked and the drinks are very good. Downside, a bit pricy for a breakfast/deli place, sometimes the crowd can be a little boisterous (aka Drunk as a skunk!) and the service can be spotty at best. We have a few favorite staff but you will find the slow and the rude. Still, positives outweigh the negatives!

I LOVE Katz's

Katz's has to be one of my all time favorite restaurants!! The service is great, the staff is very punctual and friendly. The decor is quite eclectic and entertaining, while much of the unique art is for sale. The atmosphere is great any time of day, no matter what mood you're in. There are people from all walks of life, very chill. I've never ordered a meal I didn't enjoy, there is so much to choose from. The prices are reasonable and there is adequate parking. I've spent countless hours there with friends, and the fact that they never close allows you to relax and enjoy a greta conversation over dinner with no feeling of being rushed out. You MUST give Katz's a try, you won't regret it!

After Theatre Nosh

Katz's has become a tradition with my family after every downtown theatre event. (We have even run into a few of the performers after the show.) Because it never ""Kloses"" we can dine, converse, and critique for as long as needed without worrying about the time. Never have we felt rushed. And the food! Try the cabbage rolls wth the cheese potatoes. And don't forget the fried pickles. I also picked up a few gift certificates for friends. Try it once and you too will be a Katz's Deli Devote'.

NOT WORTH IT

The food is not worth the plate it's served on. The burgers are awful, soggy and tasteless. The fries are greasyand undercooked. The deli sandwiches are not that special, they have meat slapped on them. The service stinks with a bunch of wanna-be trendy/preppy people. The atmosphere is superficial. We did not like the place and will not return nor recommend to anyone.

Quality is back!

Katz's suffered a setback in quality some time back after changing suppliers. However, they have recently changed the menu and, I belive, a few suppliers. The result is the great food that I remember from Katz's in Austin is back along with a few new items. Oh, and Katz's is pretty much the best all night eatery in Houston in my opinion.

Don't know of a good title

Well, Katz's I can't help I got to tell you..you all never klose, but I also got something to tell you Katz's..your prices are sky high..just like your sandwiches and things that you all charge an arm and a leg for, your staff is blatantly rude, except for David..and the host that does the night shift usually. The only thing that is worth paying for are the jalapeno bites, and the fried pickles. Everything else is just too high, oh..the desserts are worth the $. But are you kidding me? $8 for a cheesecake shake? HA! I can make my own, for cheap!

This dump is pathetic. They should have left the burnt out shell of Tio's!
Marc's place in Austin at least TRIES to replecate a true NY deli. This dump has lousy food, miserable service and prices that are a rip off.

Fried Pickles

Best fried pickles I've ever had. Desserts are great too, esp the Key Lime Pie and the Rice Pudding. Oh I can't leave out the blintzes or the Death by Chocoalte! And the strawberry milkshakes are amazing!

Gettin the New York Attitude

Well for a place that bills it self as a ""New York"" Deli they definately don't know how to serve warm Apple Pie ""New York Style"" with a warm slice of cheese sans ice cream. Waiter informed me that it came with ice cream no matter what (including for customers who specifically asked not to have it).

So you get the ""New York"" Style service if nothing else.

It never closes

Huge protions. Full bar. Great place for health care workers to go in morning after night shift to get a few drinks and humungous portions of food. The beef bacon is EXCELLENT.

love it!

Katz's.........mmmm. The cheesecake shake is to die for, and most everything else is yummy. Don't forget to ask for your pickles (they are free upon request). The bartender (Michael) is the cutest, and lots of fun. Great place to hang out, the bar is a great place to meet some interesting people, neat place to people-watch.

Have a reuben :)

I love Katz's...Plain and simple. Im orginally from NYC and this is the closest thing ive found to a great 24 hour kosher deli here in the bayou city. I go for the mazoh ball soup and reubens. Also, the price you pay is, IMHO, worth it. Its going to be a little more than the subways and schlotzkis of the world...but its worth every single bite :)

Katz's is the best for late night or when you have a craving for a really good sandwich. My husband and I go to Katz's at least once or twice a month. Very tasty, and what an atmoshpere!

I know why it never closes

Katz' was amazing. The people were absolutely wonderful and I've never been to a place where the owner will walk up to you and carry on conversation because he is so friendly.

Not going back

Food is overpriced for what you get, the wait staff/host are rude and indifferent and unfriendly, and it smells funny upstairs.
