Langer's Deli has mouthwateringly delicious pastrami, the best in L.A. without a doubt! Their potato salad is amazing as well and I have yet to taste the plethora of other amazing eats they have at this grand landmark. Norm, owner and son of Al Langer,...More

Langer's food is delicious. Parking can be somewhat challenging but there is a lot across the street. I believe it was $5.00 to park. The line is usually long, at least when I go. I would suggest the pastrami on a roll. It is delicious!!!...More

Good food in an old fashioned delicatessen. Like most Jewish delis, it can get a tad expensive, but the sandwiches are large and the rye bread is to die for. Their pastrami sandwich is the 2nd best in all of LA

The #19 pastrami with their rye break, russian dressing and cole slaw is a real winner!! A classic at Langer's forever! The salads were huge! Service was fantastic...seems like there is always a wait, but worth it...gotta go..and then go back

A comforting, warm and happy place. I genuinely believe that good things happen on days that I visit Langer's, it's just a common trend I've noticed in my life.

Langer's is a deli that is located in down town Los Angeles. There are very few deli's in the down town area. So if you are really craving deli food and in the area, you can try it. Not the best by far and forget...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
