I think this place used to be connected to another location on Crenshaw and Adams that made the best pastramis but the area got too rough and I think they closed up, The Johnys in Culver City makes various types of Jewish deli sandwiches and compare to Langers and New York Deli with Cantors lagging behind. Prices are a little... More

The Sandwich was huge and tasty and the onion rings were delicious and a huge portion was served! I hope i dont have to wait another 27 years to try this place. Parking is a... More

If your looking for that eclectic 50's/60s scenery and look this is the place to be. The food is to die for. It is packed full of the most delicate cuts dipped in a mouth watering dip. I would recommend this to anyone looking good for an honest feed with a splash of what it was like in the good... More

The pastrami sandwich I ordered was very good and very big, could easily feed two people with average appetites. I ordered French fries which were plentiful and very good as well, I had cole slaw which was good and flavorful. The restaurant was full of patrons, both inside and on the patio. My order was taken quickly and prepared for... More

this is not a Langer's or Brent's Kosher style Pastrami which I love; this is "American"s style pastrami which is also great but different piled mile high and delicious. Ask for the special hot mustard they keep under the counter. Not for someone watching their Sodium intake!

I've been going to this place for years. Only thing I have tried was the pastrami and it has always been good! Well I tried their fries too. I order my pastrami with Swiss cheese. I love how they stack on the meat and it's so thinly sliced. The pickles they give on the side go perfect with it. I'm... More

Pickles here are also fabulous. Pastrami and pickles have declined a little over the years and prices have crept up. Still, it is one of my favorite places for pastrami and beats Katz's Deli in NYC. If you hear someone having a Big "O" here, it is real.

The food is always good at Johnnie's Pastrami. No one in my department has ever complained about eating there.

This place has stood the test of time and for good reason - the food is incredible, it is fast and the prices although rising are still a pretty good value for what you get. I can only attest to one item on the menu - the pastrami sandwich - as it is the first thing I tried at Johnnie's... More
