"Send a salami to your boy in the army!" This Jewish kosher deli has been making converts with its salami — and pastrami and hot dogs and more since 1888. You go in, get a taste at the counter from one of the expert slicers like Eddie, and marvel at how great it is that a place like this exists. Then you dive into pickles and a huge pastrami sandwich with mustard and a big pricetag. It's worth it — it really is one of the only deli sandwiches a person needs in life. And the pastrami and eggs "made like the boss likes it," with eggs cooked on the hot dog grill to get that greasiness? Not many things better for breakfast. Just don't lose your ticket. You don't want to know what happens.  — Arthur Bovino, 2/17/2011

While the Pastrami is the superstar here, their Frankfurter is one of the best in the city. Order them at the counter near the entrance.
Katz deli is packed, the food was good. Me and my cousin ordered a knish, frankurter and a pastrami sandwich. TOTALLY WORTH IT. If your in New York stop by, here is where you get your fingers dirty.

As seen on Travel Channel’s Food Paradise: Manliest Restaurants 2, Katz's is the Mecca of pastrami & Mecca of sandwiches. What to order? Corned beef and pastrami.

It's all about the pastrami on rye at this famous deli. Take your ticket stub, walk to the right counter, get your food, and chow down. Don't lose that ticket stub though or it'll cost ya!

Try the pastrami or the hot dogs. Katz's is a landmark eatery that's been serving up delicious meats since 1888.

I'll have what she's having. The famous scene of 1989's "When Harry Met Sally" took place here at Katz's. There's even a sign at the specific table where Billy Crystal and Megan Ryan sat
Possibly the most famous NYC food landmark, this Jewish deli excels in each dish, from snappy hot dogs to giant pastrami sandwiches. Hint: don't forget to tip your carver!

A true New York original, absolutely order the incredible pastrami, but be warned about re-enacting Meg Ryan's famous performance from 'When Harry Met Sally' filmed here!
NYC's oldest deli still creates on mean pastrami sandwich including slow-dried and cured deli meats, briskets and knockwurst. If anything else, Meg Ryan seemed to love it in "When Harry Met Sally."
if you come early enough in the morning, you'll have the place all to yourself

Order a matzo ball soup, pastrami on rye, and a Doc Browns cream soda. Think of what your mother would say if you don't finish.
