This is the best deli besides Nate and Al. Excellent food and service. The owner is always there and she is such a sweet lady. We love going there

“THE Place to Go for Deli in L.A.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

I go here about once a month specifically for a luncheon with colleagues. There is a back room which is great for meetings and large groups.

I have also been here with family both for lunch and dinner. Factor's has the best matzah ball soup! Their corned beef sandwiches are also pretty good. I just recently had their savory mazah brei. I've somehow grown up not ever having matazh brei. (I guess being Sephardic is a part of that.) It had way too many mushrooms for my taste, but I'd probably still get it again. They're pretty good on refilling drinks. Also, they've got these HUGE salads. I mean, their "small" could be shared with 3 people!

For dessert, try out the raspberry rugalach! Some of the best rugalach I've had in L.A.

“Loved it - yummo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

We first went to this lovely deli on our honeymoon 23 years ago and recalled the generous portions and the friendly service. In fact, it was the first American deli we ever went to. This time we came with our hungry teenage son and we were not disappointed. All was as we remembered and we all left well fed and the service was very friendly and the food came quickly too.

“Great lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2011

We were staying at the Residence Inn across the street from the restaurant. We needed lunch quickly to take back to our hotel. Factors Famous Deli was the stop. Not even knowing a thing about it's history - just entering the place was fabulous in itself. Our food was hot and ready when I arrived; and everything was awesome. Sandwiches. Fried Cheese. Soups - Mushroom Barley, Matzo Ball, Vegetable... Salads. Cookies. Seriously - worth every moment of it all. We would definitely return!

“Huge portions of deliciousness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2011

Went there last night starving. Saw the portion sizes coming out to other diners so we ordered mini portions. Still no room for dessert but grabbed a slice of excellent cherry pie to go. The mini Reuben was amazingly good as was the tortilla soup. Great place, excellent value!
