I'm a regular a t Nate-N-Al's when I live in LA and even today as a visitor. Langer's staff is pleasant and playful. I gave our server a lovingly rough time regard an extra charge to heat my tongue sandwich meat. Next thing I new see had the owner; Norm Langer came to the table to visit. After 10-15 min.... More

First off if you're just getting food to go they offer curb side service so you can place you're order and just pull up to the side and they'll bring it out to you. I was getting food to go but also decided since I was there to eat my lunch across the street in MacArthur Park. I found street... More

This was my second time here. Was hoping it would be as good as I remembered. It didn't disappoint. I ordered the #65, the best pastrami I have ever had!!!!

Excellent meal. Pastrami second to none. On the very expensive side for a deli. 2 sandwiches, 1 fry, and 2 cokes was 50 bucks. Other huge issue is this is an a horrible neighborhood. A mentally ill homeless person was smacking several people in the face on our way from parking lot to restaurant. Service was ok. Did their job... More

Sent here by Dennis from the Holiday Inn Express and it was a big treat. The service was good with great advice, the servings were large and very delicious and the price was quite reasonable.

We had "#19"- Pastrami, Swiss cheese, and Cole slaw with Russian-style dressing on rye, french fries, and strawberry cheesecake. Check out the menu. Everything looks great.

Langer's advertises as the world famous hot pastrami. Well I am not sure if it's the world famous but definitely the best pastrami I have ever had. The meat is so tender and not too salty, with the coleslaw and Russian dressing (like a thousand island) on rye bread, it is just simply delicious. My husband tries not to eat... More

There isn't much I can add to all the other reviews singing the praises of this place and the fabulous pastrami sandwich they make. Very simply, if you love pastrami and especially if you live somewhere, as I do, where you can only get so-so pastrami, you have to come here. I was here two years ago and had the... More

Park off-site, yellow line over, or walk briskly through MacArthur Park, to an endearing local iconic deli. Enjoy the pastrami, sans Swiss cheese, Russian dressing on the side, to savor the purity of this mouth watering rarity, washed down with a Cel-Ray or cream soda; Having searched the OC far and wide, to no avail, will gladly drive 45-miles to...
