Katz's - Not up to the hype!

EatMe | Feb 4, 2006 04:20 PM

We went to Katz's for the first time last night. This place did not live up to the hype in the least. The pastrami, while good, was not as big as everyone purported. It was an average-sized sandwich that wasn't any better than anything I get uptown. The cheesesteak was wimpy, tasteless and dry ... Rocky would NOT leave Philly for this thing. And what is with the service? These guys were constantly aping for a tip when my sandwich hasn't been fixed yet. Does Katz's not pay them at all? Or am I supposed to bribe them to make me a decent meal?
