I am surprised I never mentioned this before. This is by far the best deli in L.A. Not all that convenient and that do not remain open in the evenings. Still, a good sandwich is sometimes worth a drive. They do have their own parking...More

The best corned beef, tongue, etc. sandwiches, chicken soup is great, extensive menu. The neighborhood is a little sketchy but they have their own guarded parking lot.

This is one of the best 2-3 pastrami's I have ever had. I visited Katz in NY Oct 2017, larger sandwiches but not as tender. The Langer's pastrami is thick cut (most pastrami's are thin sliced), it is very flavor-able and is the MOST TENDER...More

Langer’s is an LA institution that is an absolute must when visiting. You will probably wait in line a bit, but it moves quickly and you must have the Pastrami. Great staff, great food. Then enjoy McArthur Park, the street vendors in the Latin heart...More
