It seems redundant to say Langer's has the best pastrami, but they do. I've tried the pastrami in the famous delis of New York and all the others in Los Angeles. Hands down Langer's is the best. The rye bread is also great. I've eaten there alongside of the Mayor, the Police Chief and several City Council members. People from... More

Came here for the first time at 2:30 on a Friday afternoon and the place was rocking busy. Didn't want to eat too much because we were invited out to dinner at 6pm but I was told to eat here by several people on my deli Facebook group. Took about three minutes to get seated,was served water and menus right... More

This place has the best pastrami (and rye bread) in the world. Well, OK, Wexler's Deli is also right up there, too, but why argue? Whichever is closer is the one I'll go to. But Langer's is older, so it deserves more love. That's why I say, Make a Pastrami Pilgrimage to Langer's! Pastrami w/chopped liver is my favorite but... More

My mother was a waitress at Langer's when they first opened well over 50 years ago. The neighborhood has changed but not the food. Still one of best delis in the country. Worth the trip even though the neighborhood feels much like you are in Mexico or Central America. This restaurant was thankfully saved by the subway and people from... More

This is the best Corned Beef and Pastrami you could ever hope to eat! The rye bread center is soft and the crust is crusty-just perfect. It's tender, juicy thin sliced and just the right amount. Not ridiculously large like a NY Deli-quality over quantity. Neighborhood is not the best, I would NOT get sandwiches to-go and head over to... More

People rave about Langer's but I find it merely okay. The pastrami is thick and rather chunky whereas, I prefer a thinner deli cut. The rye bread is hard and not that tasty. The area is a bit seedy and overall I prefer the deli on Fairfax.

Lander'sis deli at its finest. They have been around a long time. There is a reason! I have enjoyed many different dishes here, but my favorite item - lox and bagels! A generous serving of fresh ingredients. Doesn't get any better than this! Langer'shas earned it'sreputation as one of Los Angeles ' top delis,

And yet... this was one of the best sandwiches I'd ever had. The vibe is great. Wait staff is perfect. Friendly but all business. Do it. At least once.

This family owned Deli is in its third generation and serves the best pastrami sandwich in the world. There are arguments as to which is the best deli in America, in LA and there are other worthy contenders but as far as pastrami sandwiches go this is the king. For a little extra order it "extra lean". Or come with... More
