Food is love which my Nana showed me at a very tender age. As a native New Yorker, I know more about everything except for native Texans. I gotta tell ya, there is no better deli ANYWHERE than in Houston, Texas at Kenny and Ziggy’s....Where to start; why not their chopped liver? Smooth, creamy and rich; A very close second to my Nana’s who included just a tad more fried onion. Next the potato knish; fabulous even without the Gulden’s spicy mustard. On to the stuffed cabbage; you’ll kvell for days after finishing. Massive quantities of meat rolled perfectly in terrific cabbage. The sweet and sour sauce is legendary. Did anyone say pastrami? If u can finish that bad boy in one sitting you’re my new hero. It’s perfect and no need to order “lean” whatever they do it’s other worldly. Save room for the super sized black and white and some nice ruggalach you’ll be glad u did. Fuggetabout eating anywhere else if u only have one meal to choose from in Htown-this is it!!!!More

I went there with my wife and son for lunch. We have been there before and have enjoyed it. However, typically some of the hot dishes always come out cold e.g. stuffed derma and mushrooms and barley. I don’t understand why since the restaurant was...not at all crowded. The server totally forgot to bring my wife her second mimosa. We asked if we could substitute onion rings for the coleslaw that came with the pastrami sandwich. The server said that he would check on this. When the bill came , I saw that we were charged 8 plus dollars for the onion rings. I would have no problem paying this but the server should have told us this. In addition, we did not receive the coleslaw that we were entitled to. The server should be more conscientious and simply communicate with the diners. I don’t think that would be a big deal . With all this being said, I did regrettably leave a 18% tip on a $115 lunch bill. I blame management for poor training. Management should stress serving hot food especially with the prices charged at this restaurant. They should teach servers better communication skills. Not sure that we will ever come back.More

I first heard of Kenny & Ziggy's from the movie, "Deli Man." I knew that when my kids moved to Houston, we would have to go there on our first visit! Our server Luis was so welcoming and helpful. The menu is huge, but my...husband and I both went for the pastrami sandwich. We've grown up in Southern CA, home to Canter's Deli, Langer's, Brent's and others, but my husband said that THIS pastrami was the best he's ever had, and I agree. I loved the potato salad, too. We also started out with orders of fried kreplach and the Reubies, both were delicious. My kids had the turkey/chopped liver sky high, and matzo ball soup. No room for dessert, but those looked great, too. A perfect experience!!More

Went with another couple for supper last night .... the new location inside is beautiful. We had the BEST service .. thanks Luis for taking such good care of us! My husband and I ordered the turkey sandwich on rye bread ... so yummy and...fresh. Other couple ordered matzoh ball soup with a corned beef sandwich and french fries. Everything was delicious. We were too full to even try dessert, but their desserts look phenomenal. Highly recommend this restaurant ... Come hungry!!More

Great Food! So many choices it was hard to decide - especially since you can see the deli counter and all the desserts They have great service and bring out some pickles to munch on as starters My husband and I both ordered sandwiches- if...we liked the same thing we could have shared, the portions are very big I could go back often because there are so many options Loved the bread choices — Rye and Pumpernickel, you don’t find often- I had grilled cheese and bacon on rye - loved it!!! DESSERTS- cookies as big as your face! pretzels bigger than the dinner plate (soft & delicious) serving of apple pie huge ( ate 1/2 as late night snack 1/2 for breakfast) Cheesecake bigger than I’ve ever seen - definitely family size- my family has requested that for our Christmas dinner so we will be back!! Just a comfortable, warm atmosphere, met the co-owner Lenny as he chatted with us learned they have a 4000 sq ft kitchen to make all their goodies - can’t wait to try more Definitely worth a trip for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner and don’t forget Dessert!!More

Worst experience picking up my online order I placed my order and arrived to pick my order. They asked my name and in a couple of minutes handed me an order, I took a look and it was not my order and the recipt had...a different name, immediately I let them know and they went back to bring my order. After a couple of minutes they asked me to show the recipt and they took a picture, after a couple of minutes they said they were still working on my order. After about 15 minutes a lady comes and ask me whats the problem? I said well I'm waiting for my order. She says: well we dont have your order. I said what do you mean you dont have my order. Well it has already been picked up And she said theres nothing she could do, she said it was not their problem someone took my order. I was in shock and I ask her if they check the ID of who picked it up because defenetly it wasn't me She said they dont check IDs and thats not their problem I ask to speak to the manager , she said she was the manager and there was no one else to speak with other than her. Then she said that there was no way she was going to give me my food because they were not going to loose money over something that wasn't their error. I was in shock. Then she said that they always ask people to show recipts to pick up orders which clearly they didn't do when I arrive because they were giving me someone elses order. Then another worker that seems to work at the kitchen approaches and ask me if all I wanted was my food to which I answered yes. He said dont worry he took the lady to the side and then they brought me my order. Last time I buy something at Kenny , the worst customer service I've experience in a restaurant in my whole lifeMore

Great atmosphere, feels like you’re dining in NYC. Service was outstanding! The menu was overwhelming in a good way, made it hard to decide what to have for dinner. Definitely not a cheap place to eat, but well worth it!

Saw this deli recently on Triple D. Wife and I shared a Fiddler on the Roof pastrami and corned beef sandwich. I suggest sharing unless you are extremely hungry. Also ordered a side of potato salad and the wife and I agree that it was...the best we ever had. A fun place, owner was in attendance overseeing operations.More

This place was very clean and quick! The food pretty amazing. Pickles was a little hard to get used to just had a weird flavor but still enjoyed. Had the pastrami and it was fabulous!

The best deli sandwiches, and amazing service as well. It was quick, courteous and warm. The sandwiches are huge and even after the two of us shared one order, we were so full! It was fresh and most fulfilling. If I were to critique it...in any way, the only thing I’d add is, maybe add that yum sandwich spread to the other two slices of bread on the sandwich. It was only on one side of the topmost slice of bread. Having said that, extra sandwich spread or not, I’ll go back every chance I get. Starts off with a complimentary plate of pickles for the table. Yum! A quick but completely satiating meal.More

This place was so busy I thought it was free. I worked in NYC for a year and a half and I assure you it is authentic. We had a person bussing a table a that pushed ruffly in between my wife and I. I...said to my wife “now that's really NY“. The food is pricey but excellent. This is the 3rd St Patrick day we came here for cornbeef and cabbage. It is as good as can be had. We liked the new location. The parking is much better.More
