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.

This will be worth the drive from now on! I had the thin carved brisket half sandwich and it was delightful....soo damn good! The sides were great and the pickles don't let you down. I will be back.

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

I went here during the summer of 2013. Brent's Deli has a varied menu full of good stuff. I went with their delicious Reuben's sandwich (it was hard to choose from all of the great sandwiches on the menu), It comes with fries (you can choose between straight or curly fries) and coleslaw as well as with whatever kind of...

Every time I go to Brent's I order the pastrami with chopped liver. As a matter of fact, every so often I think about it and need a "fix." The pastrami is excellent as is the chopped liver and I love the combination. I always ask for the newer pickles and our server is always happy to accommodate. The wait... More
