Is there a better New York-style deli in Houston than Kenny & Ziggy's? After years of being named the Best Deli by both our professional critics and beloved readers, Kenny & Ziggy's is undeniably top of its class. Third-generation deli owner Ziggy Gruber's appearance in the 2014 documentary Deli Man has further cemented his restaurant's stronghold as the place to go for classic, New York-style deli sandwiches such as the Fiddler on the Roof of Your Mouth — a triple decker killer of a sandwich layered with corned beef, house-made pastrami and Russian dressing. Other Jewish classics include his homey matzoh ball soup, his famously creamy chopped liver, his Hungarian stuffed cabbage and, of course, his housemade lox and bagels. Beyond the food is the ambience — always bustling, with generations of Jewish families gathered over dishes made with recipes passed down for generations.
