  1. Katz's, my #1 pick, is all about the pastrami. The cole slaw is fine. No comment on the corned beef, chicken soup, or potato salad because I've never tried them there. And there are no dill pickles, only sour or half-sour.

    My second choice would be Sarge's. The pastrami is very juicy and tasty, the fries are crispy, and the chicken soup with matzoh balls and noodles is very good.
