Love virtually everything available at this Deli. You will too. Come at an off time so you have a chance to look at everything without the pressure of lunchtime. Sandwiches are way bigger than you expect and the meat is to die for. love this place. Only negative is parking at high volume times

Tons of options for cheese, breads and sandwiches. Grab a custom sandwich and pickle or fresh side for lunch or to go.

Closest thing to a NY style deli in Columbus. Corned beef, pastrami, ruglach etc. We are fans of the #17: corned beef, chopped liver, and cole slaw on rye. And don't forget to get a pickle from the barrel

Challenge hungry food mavens to a pickle eating contest in this classic Columbus deli. Bill Clinton ate here and then survived his coronary, so it must be healthy, right? Great eats inside or out on the street makes this a fine place to order and eat. Free pickles and fluid refills are just an accompaniment to the outrageously good sandwiches... More

Katzinger's is a great place for lunch. In summer there is outside seating but in winter it is a little crowded. I always get a reuben. It is huge....easily more than a pound of corned beef...and a great dill pickle. Wonderful sandwiches and german salads like potato salad. You can also buy a variety of cheeses. It is one of...

First time in. I was told to get the Ruben. I am not a fan of sauerkraut, but the way they make it, I enjoyed it. The smoked turkey looks the best. The bread and meat are very fresh. That's important to me. Would go back again and again.

Have been to Katzinger's several times and they know Deli! I recommend the pastrami on rye with spicy mustard. The pastrami has great flavor and is as tender as I've had anywhere. The bread is nice and soft with a great crust. Pickles not my favorite but that is a personal preference

Description
Katzinger's Delicatessen - Family owned and operated since 1984!
Our sandwiches are really big - HUGE in fact. We know some of you can't eat that much so we also offer a smaller sandwich - we refer to it as Normal. All sandwiches come with a free help-yourself-from-the-pickle-barrel dill. Choose from traditional "old" or garlicky "new". And we offer plenty of freshly prepared-to-order salads and desserts to tempt you, too. You should leave Katzinger's wanting to come back again - and soon!

We're very proud of our food - Black Angus corned beef prepared by Sy Ginsburg's United Meat and Deli using Sy's special secret ingredient ( many, many tons later and he still won't tell us what it is!)...Chickens raised by Amish families at Gerber Farms... Imported Emmentaler, the original Swiss cheese... Breads made especially for us and delivered daily by Mediterra Bakehouse in Pittsburgh and we hand slice every loaf... Bagels from Sammy's delivered fresh daily... Gluten free bread from Eban bakery of Grove City . Our mayo is Hellmann's. We oven roast our turkeys to moist perfection. We dress our roast beef with lots of garlic and rosemary and roast it to a beautifully pink medium rare. We marinate our brisket for 48 hours before slow roasting to fork tenderness. Our chicken, tuna and egg salads are made with memorable recipes. These are just a few of the fine ingredients we use to create the deli foods of Katzinger's Delicatissen.
