Langer's is an LA institution that, despite being a born and bred Los Angeleno, I never get to go to because I'm always too late! For some reason my craving for a giant, melty, meaty pile of deliciousness doesn't hit til after the sun sets...More

We have been going to Langer's for many years. Sometimes we order and pick up at the corner. But I like the tables and the booths. I like climbing the little stairs to go up to floor above. I like the windows and the pace...More

Kiat got off the subway at McArthur Park. Had some time to walk around the lake, it was late afternoon, the sunlight edged the downtown high rises with am orange glow. Hunger strikes haphazardly, unexpectedly. The neighborhood is graced by art deco architecture which was...More

We've been going to Langer's for years and have always been impressed by their food and service. I must admit that we've only gone a lunch but they serve the same menu throughout the day. Their signature sandwich is the #19 pastrami sandwich (which is...More

Langer’s may be the preeminent Kosher-style deli in Los Angeles. Most guests try a No. 19, a hot pastrami sandwich with cole slaw, Russian dressing and Swiss cheese. It’s their most popular sandwich by far! Foodies proclaim Langer’s pastrami the best in the country, but...More

The best pastrami sandwich anywhere. The hand cut pastrami is fantastic and the rye bread with its crunchy crust and the soft rye bread is a great compliment to the pastrami. Yes, the pastrami is on the fatty side but that’s one of the things...More

A legend in the city; great food, friendly and prompt service, old time vibe and a real East Coast feel. BIG portions. What more do you want! Vibrant neighborhood, fun to walk around, and easily accessible on the Red Line.

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

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
