Always great pastrami and more

Lunch today at Langer's was, again, a great experience. It wasn't too busy (tip: early lunch, like 11:30, means you get a booth). Most of our party ordered pastrami sandwiches. I had the chef salad - classic and perfect. Someone else had a small cup of cabbage soup that smelled like it should... read more

On of the best (if not the only one) real restaurant in this neighbourhood. Famous from great sandwiches (pastrami!), but my favourites were panckes.

Highly recommend the pastrami sandwich if you're looking for something delicious, filling, and quick! Beware this place gets really busy but def worth it.

A Jewish deli in MacArthur park. Holy moly! They have an extensive menu that can take you 20 minutes to decide what you want. I ended up ordering Half Pastrami Sandwich with Matzo Ball Soup. Perfection. What makes Langer's different is the rye bread. It's soft in the middle and crispy on the crust. I want to come back here... More

A first rate deli experience, not quite Brent's or Canter's but still quite good. Here are my reasons: 1) They rush you in an out so fast you will need an order of Heimlich. I was there the other day and Sue, who is the smiling assassin that wants you in and out of your table in 5 minutes or... More

I had a great Sandwich here yesterday, I could only eat half of it and that's unusual for me, but at $17 bucks that's pretty expensive. This is pretty much the standard price for sandwiches here, give or take a few dollars. Nice for a one off but doubt I'll return.

My son and I went to Langer's prior to a Dodger game last weekend. Fortunately, we found the last space available in the parking lot associated with Langer's (about a block a way). We were able to find counter space which avoided a wait. The service was prompt and professional. I had the pastrami with cole slaw and an order... More

Always a line to get in, and the tables are not the most comfortable. However, once the food arrives, it's easy to be a happy camper.

Old school deli, better than most New York Deli that I've been. Pastrami on Rye is the sandwich to go for but chicken liver is also excellent.

It's a throwback location in the midst of a 2nd/3rd world neighborhood. The food is good, the girls work hard to deliver and the old-world ambiance is reminiscent of days gone by.
