Too bad Tripadvisor only gives me 5 circles! This place is absolutely amazing!! Do NOT go expecting quaint ambiance, this is an old school deli, and that is EXACTLY what you get. It is so good, some days the line will be around the corner...More

Nothing compares to their pastrami meat. No, not even Katz. #19 with Swiss cheese and Russian dressing is a must. Love their pastrami and tongue plate. Their krinkled fries. Everything on their menu is super solid. Service is on point!! Love Langer's!!!

The neighborhood must have been swank when Langer opened his Deli in 1947. Today, it's a little dicey. Yet, when you walk through the doors, you enter a warm, safe, bustling Pastrami nirvana, filled with loyal fans with that blissful look of yum. Order the...More

Langer's Deli is just in the wrong neighborhood. Good food. Decent service. Can be a bit surly sometimes. Avoid going at the main lunch hour, super busy. Go for a late breakfast or late lunch when it is not so chaotic. Had not been in...More

I ordered the half roast beef meal, and it was delicious. Although the area doesn't look too safe to be in (especially at night time) so please be careful. Our group of four went at 11:30am on a Wednesday, and we didn't have to wait...More

The food at Langer's is AMAZING!. You truly cannot go wrong with most anything you order there. However, there is one caution, once you try the "#19 – PASTRAMI, SWISS CHEESE and COLE SLAW Russian Style Dressing" sandwich, you'll never order anything else. The combination...More

Okay, if you want pastrami, this is the real deal. Disclosure: I don't eat pastrami. I like their tuna salad and their turkey diet plate. But everyone else know craves their pastrami. The staff is friendly. Come often and they'll get to know you. There's...More

Good service. Can be crowded with a waiting line, but the place is a NY Deli with good versions of the traditional food. Great Ruben, good side dishes. Have gone with groups of 2 to 6 and have been seated in just a few minutes....More

If Norm Langer is the guy who started Langers, he passed away. As to exactly who cuts the goods now, I am guessing it is the person with the big knife and gifted eyes and hands. Levity never (?) hurt anyone. If it is... More
