Your basic deli experience, but good food! Expansive menu, huge deli sandwiches, soups, grill offerings etc. It's in a non-descript strip plaza off of the main thoroughfare behind the big area mall. The decor is a little tired, but clean and neat. I got soup and a huge sandwich and it was easily enough for 2.5 people! The food was... More

Well look no more.I have been to several wonderful deli's throughout United States and Canada. I must tell you that Brent's ranks right up there with the best of them,--probably the best in Southern California for sure. The food selection is huge and the prices moderate by todays standards. The food is simply delicious, just like your mother used to... More

The Northridge location is usually busy. It's kind of not in a prime spot, but if it was, it would be busier. Good pastrami sandwiches and a good breakfast selection. The prices are slightly on the high end, so you'll probably not want to eat here daily.

Brent's is the typical long-term deli (think the sign said established in 1967) that knows how to keep its customers satisfied with great food and service. Portions are large and prepared with a bit of flair. Appetizers (pickles and sauerkraut) are provided. What's not to love in this type of authentic meal?

We came to Los Angeles for a family vacation and decided that we would go local and eat we're the locals eat. We were not disappointed with Brent's Deli. Especially with the great service from Antonio and Renee. They were very attentive and great service all around. Antonio came to greet us first and was very friendly and we asked... More

Tried this place on a recommendation of their pastrami and they were so correct. Set in a small outside mall, parking is not difficult. There was about a 20 minute wait on a Saturday morning so not too bad. Waitress friendly and water glass kept filled (important). The menu was huge and they had everything you could possibly want.

Slices of meat melt in your mouth tender perfection. The matzoh ball soup was fantastic as well. And they bring you endless pickles. Not much more that I can add that hasn't been said.

I went here last Sunday morning with family. It was packed and busy. Wait time: 30+ minutes. When I finally sat down, I ordered the Hot Pastrami. Price = $14.25. It came with a small dab of potato salad. It was a lot of pastrami but it was bland. Potato salad was also OK. Coffee was drip-brewed. Just OK. Service... More
