I took three mother's out for lunch at Katz's Deli. The food was fantastic and plentiful. I highly recommend the French Onion soup and Reuben sandwich. Their food is all homemade and they have vegan and gluten free options. The prices are reasonable and we all left carrying part of the meal home with us. Most of the sandwiches come... More

Late night and nothing else was really open so our son took us to this deli....Don't let the Deli name fool you..not just a Deli but a great menu of food and drinks. Surprise, Surprise, this place is right near Rice University and great choice for our party of 7.

I went to this restaurant because I really wanted a knish. I havent had one in years. The minute I walked through the door, the greeter tells me I must want to use the elevator, (Im a big girl) then tries to recover by saying no one wants to take the stairs. We got a waiter who looked like he... More

While I have not tried many things on the large menu the brunch options are pretty good (except the omelets), a steady go to place that we fall back on when we want something quick and reliable. There is always parking and the atmosphere is comfortable, the manager does come round every time to ask if there is anything they... More

My favorite late night spot in Houston! Even when crowded, it seems like turnover is pretty quick with tables and wait isn't ridiculously long. Great place to get breakfast in the wee hours of the morning. Everything on the menu is good. Love the potato pancakes. And the colossal cinnamon rolls are a must. Extremely quick service. It took no... More

The sandwiches are huge just like in NY. The Reuben was perfect. I could not have asked for better. We sat at... More

I go here for my favorites, the enormous reuben sandwich, cole slaw, lox and bagels, borscht, and cheese blintzes, never all at the same time, because that would be physically impossible! Open 24 hours, great service and food. We always enjoy our visits there, and wish it were closer.

Finally made it back and glad I came. That Reuben never disappoints. Not even the skinny one it is full of meat. It was breakfast time so we got the buttermilk pancakes , hash browns( not shredded ones) and beef bacon. A nice amount for an adult .There is a kids menu so don't have to worry about giving small...
