I have been there more times than I can count on two hands and the food is always excellent! Some complain about the prices, but the portions are easily enough for two meals or two people. My favorite is the corned beef and Matzo ball...More

Brent's has breakfast, lunch and dinner and lots of food at each serving. Their dessert counter is outrageous. It's location is right off the 101 Freeway just south of the 126 Freeway.

I'm from the east coast and this is about close to a genuine NY deli that you can get. Portions aren't as big as NY but it's really delicious. The only problem is figuring out what to order on the HUuuuuge menu!

Had about a 15 minute wait..not bad. Parking is easy, in lot. Had the Heartstopper sandwich...amazing! The Heartstopper is Pastrami Rueben on a garlic roll, with coleslaw and amazing curly fries!

Living quite some distance from L.A. now, we hadn't been to Brent's in a good while. Returning there at last, we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent and, unlike some delis, the service was friendly and very good.

Good Deli outside of NYC is very hard to find. Brent's does a reasonably good version of corned beef & pastrami, the potions are not the size of Katz's or the old Second Avenue Deli but they are sufficient. Brent's friendly service was a welcome...More

Tucked away in a sleepy strip mall in Northridge is the finest deli in the Valley and perhaps all of LA. The servings are ample, the atmosphere simple and the prices comparable to other delis. They have their own version of Langer's famous #19. Brent's...More

Because I don't have small kids anymore, I have never noticed but I am sure they do. It's a great restaurant and child friendly.

I have neighbors that go to NYC a few times a year, and enjoy the pastrami from pastrami Queen (mentioned in the Wall Street Journal recently). They tell me that Brent's pastrami and rye bread are better. Los Angeles now... More
