The #19 pastrami sandwich is what put Langer's on the map and makes them a goto place in Los Angeles.

This is a dynasty. That means, destroying the peers and crushing it’s new entrants. 70+ Years on it delivers and then some. It’s a Time Warp. Enter the Resturant from a very immigrant dominated local, transponder yourself to 1965 NY Jewish Deli. Awesome. Food (44...More

The sandwiches here are pretty big portions, but pretty basic, and they are great that way! Coleslaw is a couple bucks extra, but fantastic if you've got the bills for it. Breakfast here is good too, and huge. Would recommend!

For the second time out of two tries over two years, Goldbelly, the agent for Langer's for overnight delivery, has failed to deliver as advertised. Twice the shipment has failed to arrive, and twice I was advised to discard the perishable pastrami because it likely...More

I have been to Langer's once before and it was great, as I recalled. My wife and I had been debating where we had most enjoyed pastrami, and since I had to go downtown, I told her that I would drop by Langer's and pick...More

I didn’t think it was possible, but the pastrami sandwich was the tastiest I ever had. People told me it was so and I didn’t believe it. It’s true! The owner was there and he was very nice!

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
