Possibly line up to get in.
Be handed a ticket on entering.
Line up behind the counter.
Decide what you want whilst waiting. Maybe share if not that hungry.
Order and let them mark your ticket.
Find a table to sit at.
Eat (sandwiches average $20 each)
Pay.
Hand your ticket in when leaving.
In that order.
It’s an experience in itself which you may or may not like.

Always like to bring back a few pastrami sandwiches when we visit the Big Apple.
10am and the place is packed! Our “cutter” was very courteous and efficient. A never miss when in NYC !

If you like authentic deli good spot to eat. If you don’t like long waits,being packed in like sardines not a good choice. Waited 1hour to get in. Spent 40 min. Crushed in lines to get sandwich, then more time to line up for sides and drinks. Then circling like a vulture for someone to free up a table. You can choose to get a table with a waitress but longer wait.

Sitting in Katz on 2nd and Houston, that was something. Crowded, but worth every second there. The food toppled the plate for the money that you pay. The corn beef melts in your mouth. The food was so good for us, when we are away from the city, we have it shipped to wherever we are stationed at the moment, just to have good food for awhile.

If you’re in New York and you want an authentic deli experience before they’re all gone, get thee to Katz’s. The food and service is all reliable. You will not leave hungry and you’ll enjoy the banter with staff and fellow diners. A glimpse of the lower east side as it used to be (before they gentrify every pebble.)
