Fantastic pastrami, I would give it a 10+. Same for the bread. But do not combine and eat as a sandwich. The flavor and crust of the bread are too big for the sandwich, It will drown out the taste of the exquisite pastrami. Eat separately and you will get the full flavors and texture of each. Take a bite of one and after a while a bite of the other.
Pastrami is sliced thick and is nicely done with just the right amount of fat and juice and spices, Bread is loaded with rye seeds and other spices with wonderful texture ( nice and soft but real rye bread consistency). Crust is out of this world. BUT DO NOT COMBINE OR YOU WILL LOSE THE FULL FLAVOR OF EACH.
Rest of food is so-so. Thus the average rating. Turkey is not off the bird, Cole slaw has good ingredients but is too dry. Potato salad tastes like it comes from Smart and Final. Tiny bits of potato in a non describable mixture. On second thought, Smart and Final's version is better.
Pickles are way below average for a deli and skimpy besides. Most delis you get a dish of pickles on the table when you sit down.
Egg Cream, although very attractive with a beautiful head of cream, is also below average in taste. Not enough chocolate.
In summary Brent's wins hands down with an overall rating of 10+.. Langers get around a 6.5
