Another old school LA choice. Takes me back in time to my grandmother's old cafe. No matter what anyone tells you, THIS is the best pastrami in town. My only regret is that they are NOT open at night and closed on Sundays, but they do have a really easy drive by service when you can't stop by. Highly recommended!

This place is an old treasure that screams to be supported by locals and visitors. I felt unoriginal ordering the popular #19 but was NOT disappointed AT ALL. Pastrami on rye is the best I've had in years. The booths reminded me of eating out with my parents... loved every minute and every morsel.

As a New Yorker, I am very picky about my pastrami. I grew up with Katz's, the Stage, and many other delis. I have to say, Langers has the best pastrami of them all. Located in an area that is undergoing major change, you walk in and you think you have been transported to another time. Our waitress Eveline was... More

Best pastrami sandwich in Los Angeles! The rye bread is made by Langers and does not get soggy or stick to the top I'd your mouth. They will also deliver across the country if you have a craving for a good pastrami sandwich and can't get one where you live.

best pastrami...period, the famous #17. Its spectacular. Very nice cozy diner feel. Service always 5/5. Parking is validated across the street with purchase. Also great fries. Very diverse menu. Wish I could eat every week, but I'd gain 50 pounds a month.

Number two must place to eat in LA. Very popular with long lines waiting to get in. Food was terrific. Service was a little rushed, trying to turn over the seats to more customers. Resturant guy directing traffic was a little rude when we had a friend visiting our table. Pastrami sandwich was excellent. For senior citizens this restaurant is... More

Got to LA early and was told this was the place to go for an excellent omelet. There was not a crowd and our food came out hot and pronto. Hubby got the Hot Pastrami and Swiss. It was to die for.

Langer's is a Los Angeles landmark. It was almost lost to us, but we begged and Langer's is still here for all of us to enjoy. It is like a deli in that it has great deli sandwiches, but there is so much more to be had. The menu is extensive and they have great items from breakfast though dinner.... More

This restaurant has some of the tastiest sandwiches, especially the pastrami. The service is excellent and the restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere.
