Enjoy Fantastic Pastrami

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.

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

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.

A Los Angeles landmark still serving the BEST pastrami west of New York City. The wait ti get in may be long, but the satisfaction of your meal will be timeless.

my boss and I ordered the number 19,..heard about it on the radio, from almost everyone..and I can tell you...it's not overhyped...I was still astonished at how good that sandwich is. especially the rye...so incredibly fresh. Can't wait to get another one.

We walked into Langer's purely by chance as we stay near by. We then realise it's rich history by reading the restaurant broacher. The waiter (Dan) was very helpful, he has showed a very high level of professionalism, this was also reflected by other staff. Dan introduced us with the signature pastrami sandwich which was absolutely fantastic, never had such... More

Langer" is a true Los Angeles institution. It is one of the last bastions of a bygone era that is apparent by how this iconic Jewish deli still thrives in a neighborhood that has been in a downward spiral for the better part of the past last century. The neighborhood itself seems to be in the early throes of an... More

Langer's has the best Pastrami on rye with Russian dressing, their #19. However if you don't want cheese on the sandwich, go with #1. My wife and I always split a sandwich and a large order of fries. The place can be pretty busy so you may have to wait a bit to get in. Parking is tough, but we... More
