    Everyone gets the #19 Pastrami but my love is the #24 Roast Beef. On an Onion Roll it rocks.

    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

    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.

    #19 all day, everyday! My Grandma & Mom came here in the 1940s & 50s. Fun Fact! During the Rodney King riots, when MacArthur Park was a war-zone, customers still drove down for curbside service.

    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.
