Foursquare Tips

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Call ahead for curbside pickup if youre in a rush.
  • do yourself a favor and order the cream soda!
  • LA's most famous old school deli, do not miss the pastrami sandwich! [Eater 38 Member]
  • 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...
  • If you don't get the rye bread you're doing it wrong.
  • Featured in LA Weekly's 99 Essential Restaurants!
  • 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.
  • I'm a fast eater, but I slow down to enjoy my #19.
  • Try #19. The pastrami is unbelievable! -Suzanne Tracht, Top Chef
  • First time here via the Red Line. Way convenient!
  • 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....
  • My bookee and I meet here at least once a week so we can eat the pastrami and so I can pay him.
  • Turn here for when a deep craving for Jewish deli food strikes, one of the best pastrami sandwiches in the country:
  • 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!
  • Sandwich Corn beef/pastrami
  • #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.
  • 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.
