I met my match when I ordered a sandwich at this joint....super stoned, and I couldn't even eat half!


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.

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/7/2013

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. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/11/2012

Better than any other ""Jewish Style"" Deli in Houston. Always gets the order right. Huge portions, friendly wait staff. Love this place. more

Food Is Amazing, Service is Subpar 1/9/2012

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. more

mediocre food, high prices, pushy service 11/27/2011

Diet-busting sandwiches 12/11/2010

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. more

Glad to see NYC in houston 8/21/2010

veggie burgers are the best! more

So far so good 7/8/2010

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. Pros: good service Cons: too crowded no matted what time of day more

Best Corned Beef EVER 6/14/2010

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. Pros: Great food, great atmosphere and great service Cons: Taking a doggy bag because I stuffed myself!! more

A deli worth eating at 4/29/2010

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. Pros: large sandwiches Cons: usually has a wait more

single mom treated like trash 4/18/2010

This incident happened several months ago, and I am still infuriated. I went here with my 3 year old son and ordered a dish for me, a dish for him, a side of veggies and a side of fruit (they had no healthy kid's choices and I always offer this to my son, every meal) We then ordered a dessert and finished eating. My son needed to use the restroom, so I left a cash tip, and then took my son to the restroom in the back of the restaurant. (You pay at the counter on the way out) When I came out of the restroom, the manager (possibly owner?) ran up to me, cash in hand, angrily telling me that in no way $10 would cover my $50 meal. I tried to explain to him that was the tip, but he did not believe me and walked me to the cashier and handed her my $10 to apply to my check. I explained to her that was the tip and paid the rest with my check card. She immediately did the math and realized her manager's error and turned red. I was so shocked that I even forgot to take back my tip!!!!!! The manager rudely walked me out and never apologized, still assuming I was walking my tab! Why is it that when a single mother walks in anywhere, she is assumed to be destitute? Kenny and Ziggy-- You suck!!! I am a very successful, intelligent woman with a 6 figure income. I work in commodities trading and I have degrees in physics, biology, and art. I am glad I finally wrote this review. I have told everyone I know this story and implored them to never patronize your establishment again. Have some respect. I am a little sad because I was a big fan of the food (although grossly overpriced) I loved the desserts. But, you treated me with such disrespect, I will never set foot in your horrible place again. Cons: accosted by manager for fear i was walking my tab more

Over Rated 1/25/2010

I went here after hearing it was featured on the food network. The soup was great, but also $7.50 a bowl. My pastrami on rye was very dry and plain. It had almost no flavor. They forgot the provolone I asked for and the sandwich alone cost $13. So, sandwich, soup, drink, tip = $25 lunch = totally not worth it. Pros: Great soup Cons: Expensive, just mediocre more

YUM! 10/8/2009

Kenny and Ziggy's food is outstanding. I go in there all the time ever since they were on the food network channel. The service has been great each time we have been there, although it is a very busy lunch rush. The portions are very big, so I would suggest sharing entrees. I also surprisingly also found out they have a corporate catering menu, so I will now be able to enjoy kenny and ziggys at work! I would definitely recommend this place !! Pros: FOOD, SERVICE Cons: LARGE PORTIONS more

maybe Kat'z should close. 10/7/2009

After seeing Kenny and Ziggys on, Dinners, Drive-ins, and Dives, I had to go and see what all the fuss was about. I dragged my husband down and had one of the best 'home cooked' meals I have had in a long time. Stuffed cabbage was wonderful and hubby had the pastrami, he is still talking about it. Pros: almost everything Cons: prices more

Came Hungry, Left Full 10/7/2009

Kenny & Ziggy's is definitely the place to go if you are looking for the best sandwiches in town! There menu is so large, its hard to pick a place to start. I have tried everything there from the sandwiches to salads to breakfast and it is all marvelous! Katz can not even compare to Kenny & Ziggy's. My company regularly orders catering from there and it is just as good as dine in. The servers are very pleasant and helpful. The Chicken Soup and Matzoh Balls are perfect for when you are feeling under the weather. Althought the price may seem a little high to some people, once you see the serving sizes you will understand. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone! Pros: HUGE sandwiches, high quality meats, yummy salads Cons: Does Galleria traffic count? more

Love the food 10/7/2009

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Houston. I eat there about once a week and still have not gone through the entire menu. I lived in New York as a kid and it really brings back memories for me. Try the Knish Knosh. It's fabulous. Also, my favorite dessert is the cheesecake. Pros: Awesome Corned Beef Sandwiches Cons: Busy lunch hour more

sleeping employees 8/27/2009

During our time at Kenny and Ziggys there was this guy setting in a booth falling over asleep we ask our waitress why they were letting that guy sleep, we were told that he was the manager on duty. Boy has Kenny let this place to the dogs. The only redeeming quality they have at all is the waitress named Linda. Pros: Linda the waitress and cabbage rolls Cons: sleeping employees more

I'm kind of nonplussed 3/14/2009

I had high hopes for Kenny & Ziggy's after having heard so much about it, and I was looking forward to a really delicious sammich. We arrived and were seated after a short wait, and that part was fine, as they were, at the time, very busy. Our waitress could be likened to a female terminator, not nearly as pretty as Shirley Manson, but definitely as deathly. She took our orders, but she was never the one who delivered anything, and she kept filling our glasses with nothing but ice and a few drops of water. In the mean time, I had the #1 Fiddler on the Roof of Your Mouth, and my friend had the Knish Knosh (I think that was the name, meat, cheese, and taters). His sandwich was delicious, but not really a sandwich. It's meat and cheese served on a bed of short, meat and taters; how hard is that to mess up? Not worth $16 though. My sandwich was a let down. First of all, while they're HUGE, they're served on a plate they BARELY fit on, with a small cup of your chosen side (macaroni salad, cole slaw, or potato salad) that's overflowing. It's almost impossible to finagle the sandwich without everything spilling over the sides. Second, the sandwich was just a TON of meat, with a wee fork of slaw and an eyedropper of dressing on it. I fully realize that the point of a NY style deli is a TON of meat, but that was basically ALL this was, and pretty much nothing else. Perhaps if there had been more slaw and dressing, I wouldn't have been so let down. Because of the lack of creativity, I really felt as though the price was unacceptable. It certainly was NOT a $16 sandwich. I was clearly not happy about my meal, however our Terminator, er, waitress, never came to ask if everything was ok or if we liked our food. After I was completely fed up and ready to go, a second waitress, Tyla, came over and took over our table (I'm not real sure why, though), and the difference was like night and day. She was amazingly personable. She worked with me and took a bit of my pile of meat back for me and tossed a slice of swiss on it and reheated it for me. It was slightly more palatable then, but I still didn't come close to being interested in finishing it. My friend and I did order desert, though, because the Boston Creme Cake looked delicious, and we were really intrigued by the giant eclair. We found out that the Boston Creme Cake is better when freshly sliced, but the creme was delicious. The creme is also what is used to fill their foot long eclair, and it was equally delicious. In closing, I probably won't be back, except maybe to get dessert, and only if we can sit in Tyla's section. Pros: Tyla is an excellent waitress, macaroni salad, desserts Cons: Really it's the price. more

Worth leaving the mall to eat there 10/2/2008

Let's face it - there is nothing good to eat inside the Galleria Mall. Food court - yuck! Cheescake factory - loud expensive tasteless. This was always the biggest drawback when my daughter & I would plan a shopping trip there. But that has changed now that we have found Kenny's & Ziggy's. The menu is expansive - the biggest problem we have is deciding what to order because everything we have tried was wonderful. My daughter's favorite is the corned beef or the super yummy matzoh ball soup. My favorite is the LEO (Lox Eggs & Onions) with an everything bagel on the side. I adore breakfast for dinner & I have to say - the matzoh brie is wonderful. And look if you want good cheesecake it's here. Kenny & Ziggy's is our favorite way to end a shopping trip, wish there was one near us! Pros: THE FOOD! more

Consistently delicious... 9/23/2008

As we frequently do when we're in Houston, my husband, my sister and I had lunch at Kenny & Ziggys a couple of Saturdays ago. We did have to wait a while to be seated, but the place was mobbed! My husband ordered his favorite, the Reuben, and it's the best Reuben ever...better than any in New York! The portion is huge, and we ended up taking it home (and it became my Sat. night dinner!). I ordered the chicken salad, the only one I've ever had with huge chunks of good; and my sister ordered a corned beef sandwich, the meat was just true deli tradition, lots of meat and bread, but she added lettuce, tomato and cheese and Russian dressing...and loved it...she almost finished the whole sandwich! Gluttons to the core, we also ordered their chocolate cheesecake and 7-layer cake...both to die for, but we did take some home. We were served our drinks immediately and did have to wait a few minutes for our food, but we arrived when they were incredibly crowded. Our waitress was very personable, and answered all our questions about the menu...even made a couple of suggestions. Truly the only negative we really find when we eat at there is that the menu is so huge we wonder if we'll ever get to taste everything...too bad we're not in Houston more often. When we can we also have breakfast there...the french toast is wonderful. Also, I used the ladies room...there was some water on the counter, but it was fine. Try this'll love it...and you'll go back. Pros: always good, huge menu, great service, true New York deli Cons: sometimes a bit of a wait, but worth it more
