    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

  • Los Angeles Times

    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

  • Midtown Lunch LA

    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...

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

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

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

    #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 B. · 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.

    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 C. · February 25, 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!

    Jared E. · February 25, 2013

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

    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 N. · November 22, 2011
  • 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 A. · September 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

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

  • 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 A. · November 8, 2010

    Get the cream soda!

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

    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.

    Make sure you ask for the lean pastrami. Sometimes it can be really fatty

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