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...

Went to Langer's for a farewell lunch for a co-worker. Arrived at 11:30am on a Wednesday, was seated quickly. Note that entire party must be present to get seated. Ordered the #19, their signature sandwich, pastrami, Swiss, and Cole slaw on rye. The meat and bread were warm and tasty. Sandwich has Russian dressing on it. Half a pickle on... More

Are you a Pastrami Holic ? Well. This a must go for it. No doubt about it. Just ask for any Pastrami dish. They are all excellent and highly tasty.

Much as I'm a big fan of all things New York I'm afraid the mantle of the best pastrami sandwich on the planet has to go to Langers delicatessen here in good old Los Angeles. It. Seems almost pointless to harp on about how great the meat is, their own signature rye bread, the fantastic staff, some of whom look... More
