Had lunch here. Pastrami sandwiches are excellent- we tried both the one on the with coleslaw and Swiss cheese, and the French dip. Didn’t order anything else, as sandwiches were plenty. Go for it!!

The Pastrami Sandwich here on house based rye is the best! Corned beef sandwich here is also amazing. Also some really good meals on the Jewish Deli menu.

Definitely the best Pastrami sandwich I've had anywhere to date and I'm 66 years old. Number 19 is Pastrami with coleslaw on the sandwich with Russian dressing and Swiss Cheese on lightly toasted rye bread. Better be hungry it's a large meal :-)

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
