NY Deli in Austin

Katz's Deli in Austin on 6th St. is a true New York deli. The corned beef on rye is fantastic, The fried pickles, a first for me, were to die for! I've also tried the french dip and I've got to say that so far everything I've tried is just great. The atmosphere is true New York deli as well and I can't wait to return and try something else.

  1. As a NY Jew who insists on going to a neighborhood deli in Brooklyn as soon as I get off the plane each year, I must disagree that Katz's is a "true NY deli".

    I have been disappointed so many times by Katz's that I have stopped going completely ..and while I love fried pickles they are not a NY deli thing at all, but a Texas adaptation of a real kosher pickle, which Katz does not have !

      Maybe you're right, but it's the best I've had in Austin. Where would you suggest? Is there anything good here in Austin?

    2. There is very little between Katz's and a NY Jewish deli. their bagels are just dry.

            I can't think of anything farther (further?) from a NY deli than Katz's. And MannyHattan's for that matter.
