I was in Los Angeles this past Saturday, had their excellent pastrami. I prefer Canter's for their corned beef but for pastrami in the Los Angeles area, Langer's is it !! FYI, if on the street parking isn't available, they do have a parking lot a block away that offers free parking if ticket is validated at the restaurant. This... More

I've been searching for good Jewish soul food since we moved to LA 10 years ago. We found Katella Deli and it's better than any we had found until today. Langer's is a par with the best Jewish delis in New York. We came into town on the metro red line and the stop is less than a block from... More

First let me tell you, I have been to Katz in New York City many times. So I tried to compare the Pastrami at Katz vs Langer. It was a tie because the pastrami at Katz was slightly better, the rye bread at Langers blows Katz away. Also if you go there please try their cream soda the absolute best.

The best pastrami sandwich I've had by far. Excellent food, excellent service and a traditional deli feel. Highly recommended.

LA has always had Jewish communities. But Langer's is not near any of them, except in the quality of its delicatessen. Known for its heaping pastrami, corned beef, reuben and tongue sandwiches it remains the premier provider on the west coast, if not the world. Bring an appetite.

The queue on an uhimposing street in LA indicates something special is going on. It is...and it is an amazingly authentic . All the deli favourites: salt beef (called corned beef in the USA, chopped liver , latkes....the list goes on. A formidable range of sandwiches, clearly freshly made and quick efficient service. Don't miss it if you are anywhere... More

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
