As a Jersey girl I know the real thing & this is it. For those with a sense of adventure order the cow tongue sandwich, but you can't go wrong with the pastrami, chopped liver, chicken soup & other traditional dishes.
You'll likely balk at the prices of this deli/restaurant, but there's enough meat to feed at least two people in one of its towering sandwiches.
Meat in bread is like the best idea ever and these guys are the most amazing improver of that idea! Their sandwiches are to die for and I hope I don’t.
Better than any other "Jewish Style" Deli in Houston. Always gets the order right. Huge portions, friendly wait staff. Love this place.
Food Is Amazing, Service is Subpar – The food here is amazing, every single thing that I've tried I have really liked/loved. HOWEVER, the cashiers that answer the phones are either rude or can't answer a simple question (ie do you have eggs benedict? or what time do you close?). I usually try to use the takeout service because every time I eat there a group of waitresses are standing around right by the entrance talking and kind of ignore you when you walk in. Then when you do get seated 1/2 the time the waiter you get is either slightly rude or never checks on you. The bus people are always friendly and our drinks are refilled as needed. For the prices that they charge, I expect the quality of food that they have (they do have great quality, fresh food), but also better service. They should also have longer hours.
mediocre food, high prices, pushy service – wait staff order you around and keep pushing stuff that you've already said you can't eat. ask about something on the menu, and he rolls his eyes like he can't be bothered.
food was mediocre, not even as good as a random diner would make.
prices are ridiculous for the type and quality of food. if you want to spend that amount of money on a meal, there are are so many other places with better food and service without the attitude.
Diet-busting sandwiches – I went with an office group for lunch. It was extremely crowded & noisy. Service was prompt. Water glasses were refilled, pickles replenished, so the bus staff was great. The sandwiches are man-sized, on the expensive side but full of meat, etc. No-frills atmosphere. Parking a little challenging being in a strip center in the Galleria.
WOW – I met my match when I ordered a sandwich at this joint....super stoned, and I couldn't even eat half!
Glad to see NYC in houston – veggie burgers are the best!
So far so good – Being from New York this is as good as it's going to get unless we all fly to NY for lunch! Roast beef is my favorite dish, the bread could be a little more crusty'hard. If the bread is too soft all the drippings from meat, sauce, etc tear up the bread.
Best Corned Beef EVER – I visited the deli this past weekend. I am glad that I ignored some of the garbage posted on this website because I found it to be better than I expected from seeing it on tv on diners, drive-ins and dives. My grand parents are from New York so I know what good deli food is like. Trust me, they have all my favorites! The corned beef sandwich on rye was amazing. My husband ordered the Reuben, which you can't help but gasp at when they set it down in front of you. We shared an eclaire with the kids and we still had enough to take home. Our server took good care of us, always refilling our drinks and made us feel like regulars on our first visit. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who has an appetite for good food.
A deli worth eating at – I don't travel to the Galleria area very often but when I do, I am always sure to stop at Kenny & Ziggy's Deli. I was never a big fan of sandwiches until my girlfriend made me try one here and now I can't help but come here whenever I get a chance. I usually get the Philly Cheesesteak which is amazingly cheesey and filled with yummy onions and peppers. I have also tried many other sandwiches including the corned beef, pastrami and the Monte Christo. They are all delicious! The only problem I ever encounter is the long wait on somedays, especially the weekends. If you are ever on this side of town and want to try a good sandwich, then be sure to go to Kenny & Ziggy's.
