Wait, did I just pay $16 for a sandwich? Yeah. Yeah, I did, and I'd do it again. My wife and I went to Langer's on a Saturday, at around 0900. The place was mostly empty. We got the famous #19 pastrami sandwich, one blintz, a chocolate egg cream (for her), and an iced tea (for me). For us, this... More

The pastrami sandwich is a masterpiece, as good as any in LA or NY, but it is getting truly expensive to eat there. A sandwich, fries and a drink will run you $25 by the time you get tax and tip.

This is without a doubt, the BEST pastrami I've ever tasted. Not located in the best part of town, but more than makes up for it thru the quality of the sandwich and the quantity is great too.

We are not usually in this neck of the woods but we certainly will make a point of a repeat visit. This place is so famous it doesn't need my review but.... The best pastrami I have ever had. My local deli just closed after a million years and I asked our waiter, Kevin to recreate my #11 from the... More

Langers is in a "skid-row" and "ghetto" Los Angeles neighborhood -- be vigilant, watch your purse/wallets and don't let your kids wonder off. We're glad that we took the "RED-LINE subway" from North Hollywood, instead of parking in this lousy, scary neighborhood. WARNING: Don't go to Langers after dark, . I would not feel safe coming here with my family... More

My boyfriend and I aren't from the L.A. area, but were surprised none of my family that actually live here knew about this place. Maybe they just live under rocks, who knows. The boy discovered this place on Food Network; I think the Sandwich King said this was his all-time favorite sandwich. We're sandwich people. We had to come. These... More

Great pastrami sandwiches, but pretty pricey for said sandwiches. In a bad/transitional neighborhood, go early or on the weekend and traffic will be lighter. I'd go back and try something different, pastrami isn't my favorite sandwich.

I heard Langer's pastami is best in town. Yes it is really juicy pastrami so tender bun is nice and soft and crispy. Even I write this review my mouth watering I can eat 3meals at least one month ha ha ha.

Finally my first visit to Langer's, tried the pastrami sandwich and was not disappointed! Super good sandwich, love the atmosphere in the place too. Good service and decent prices for the huge portions!

Langer's is rightfully known for its pastrami and corned beef sandwiches. Especially with a potato knish and Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray Soda. But the experience is not complete without the wait staff, many of them Jewish grandmothers with attitude and advice. As a NYC transplant this is one of the places to go for a taste of home. I recently brought... More
