    Try #19. The pastrami is unbelievable! -Suzanne Tracht, Top Chef

    The pastrami on rye at this deli gives its NYC rivals a run for their money. Be prepared, the neighborhood can be sketchy, but the food's worth it. They also have curbside service for takeaway treats.

    The fact is inescapable: Langer's serves the best pastrami sandwich in America, in a location perhaps better suited to a tamale merchant. Curbside service (call ahead) and Validated lot parking! Read more

    Favorite: The long-steamed pastrami, dense, hand-sliced and nowhere near lean, has a firm, chewy consistency, a gentle flavor of garlic and clove, and a clean edge of smokiness. Read more

    do yourself a favor and order the cream soda!

    A real traditional Delli. Be sure to try the potato salad, the pastrami sandwiches, the roast beef, the corned beef and the carrot cake! Portions are huge and prices are moderate.

    Get the number 19. DO IT NOW.

    Believe it or not, the completely plain pastrami sandwich is better than the #19. Nothing to distract you from the best pastrami in the world...

    Midtown Lunch LA · January 9, 2012
  • Jim Techfrog A.

    Order the #19. Tender slices of thick cut Pastrami & coleslaw on the most amazing rye. Best sandwich in LA, period. Better than in NY. Try for yourself, you'll thank me, I promise. #19 baby!

    Jim Techfrog Alden · September 22, 2011

    I'm a fast eater, but I slow down to enjoy my #19.

  • Weezer M.

    Forget #19. Get #10 grilled, Russian on the side. End with apple pie with brandy sauce a la mode.

    Weezer Monkey · July 10, 2010

    I order #19 everytime! Pastrami, coleslaw and Pickle, you make my day! Read more

    First time here via the Red Line. Way convenient!

    Milt Zweig · March 2, 2013
  • Galo C.

    The No 19 is good but the No 44 is better if you like sauerkraut - just ask for light sauerkraut --- or get the pastrami plain to enjoy the pastrami in its Allness....

    Galo Canote · February 25, 2013
  • Elan H.

    My bookee and I meet here at least once a week so we can eat the pastrami and so I can pay him.

    If you don't get the rye bread you're doing it wrong.

    Their signature #19 is incredible. The bread,pastrami were amazing. You should try it!If you go there for lunch, it would be better to get there before noon.

    #19 is over-hyped for a reason. A delicious reason. I recommend you resist the urge to be cool and original by ordering anything else.

    Alex Blagg · February 13, 2010
  • Nicolas R.

    Get the Number 19, on toasted rye with a tall iced tea. And say hi to Trish and Norm for me. :) You won't regret it.

    Nicolas Rodriquez · February 2, 2010

    get the number 19 of course.

  • Chris L.

    LA's most famous deli. The most popular sandwich, the #19. The pastrami literally melts in your mouth, the Russian style dressing so graceful yet rich, and the tepid coleslaw the perfect complement.

    Chris L · February 2
  • Cory W.

    This is Classic LA! And one of the best Deli's in this country.

    90 minute parking at a lot on Westlake and 7th St. when validated at Langer's.

    Someone please order something other than a pastrami, #19, or an egg cream so we can get some intelligence on this place.

    Jeff Orlick · September 28, 2013

    The number 19 changed my view on LA Deli's . That was a flavor I havnt experienced since Katz in NYC. Super glad I made the trip!

    #19 always. Love the Grilled Nippy on Rye. Sit at the counter on Sarurdays with Barbara. Send Norm a hello and my love from NYC.

    It's all about #19 here. Don't be tempted to order something else. Add EXTRA CRISPY fries. Wash it down with cream soda.

    Julian Nam · November 22, 2011

    Los Angeles has some fine traditional deli options. But it's Langer's that boasts the reputation as having the best pastrami in the city. · September 4, 2011
  • The Feast

    Widely considered the best pastrami sandwich in Los Angeles, if not the country. Try the re-baked rye bread with silky corned beef and chopped liver, along with bubbly egg creams. Read more

    The Feast · June 9, 2011
  • JESS K.

    One of the better "old school" deli's in LA. BUT avoid the main lunch time! It is chaos! LOL!

    JESS Kalinowsky · April 20, 2011
  • Michael M.

    Order #19. It's the best pastrami sandwich in L.A.!

    Michael Mahoney · April 9, 2011
  • Joe A.

    OMG, the world's best Pastrami. I just can't convince myself to try anything else, the Pastrami is soooo good. The bad part is that once you try it, you will hate all other pastrami that you eat at ot

    Joe Acindra · November 8, 2010

    Get the cream soda!

    I love the #88 or the #44 (but sub nippy cheese with Swiss).

    Don't judge Langer's by its sometimes sketchy neighborhood: Just go early, order the hot pastrami on rye with coleslaw and Russian dressing, and savor the experience. Read more
