Langer's has the best pastrami in North America and most likely the planet! I'm sure there are other great things on the menu but for the last 35 years I've enjoyed the pastrami and only the pastrami. Go now.

Nine of us went yesterday for lunch and it was way better than just finger-licking good! Well worth our wait to get seated:-) From great sour dill pickles, to delectable latke's and kishka, to the best sandwich on twice baked rye hosting the tastiest pastrami west of New York, this was a veritable feast at LA's longest running deli.

I was in town for work meetings and the Feb 17, 2017 storm cancelled flights out of Southern California, so I had an extra day to explore LA. I wanted to check out an LA institution and multiple sites list Langer's as one of LA's most iconic, so I had to try it. I'm definitely not a frequent pastrami eater... More

You can't go wrong: old school, new school. I've been coming here for years, love it every time I walk in the door, back to the Al Langer days.

Greatest pastrami sandwich in a challenging neighborhood. Validated parking worked great. Down to earth atmosphere that caters to all comers!

This sandwich is FAMOUS. I drive from the west valley to their downtown location. Busy, they have a parking lot, you can do curb pickup if you call ahead. I also like to slurp down a bowl of their wonderful cabbage soup. If you want GREAT PASTRAMI, Langer's is the place to go

Best corned beef and pastrami sandwiches in town, but beware of long lines at certain times. They do move quickly, however.

Have been coming to Langer's for decades and am thrilled that it's received a new lease on life in the last decade thanks to nearby Metro station. Not only the best pastrami in LA, but the best pastrami ANYWHERE. The rye bread is also THE best. Great blintzes, great kugel, great chicken soup. Decor shows a faded shabbiness and prices... More

Great pastrami sandwich that melt in your mouth, extra pickle is a must. Parking could be a challenge during peak lunch or dinner. Great service from their tenured employees. Try their curbside pick up if you're ordering to go.

Thank Rudy M
