LA has always had Jewish communities. But Langer's is not near any of them, except in the quality of its delicatessen. Known for its heaping pastrami, corned beef, reuben and tongue sandwiches it remains the premier provider on the west coast, if not the world. Bring an appetite.

Don't miss it if you are anywhere... More

I was getting food to go but also decided since I was there to eat my lunch across the street in MacArthur Park. I found street... More

Excellent meal. Pastrami second to none. On the very expensive side for a deli. 2 sandwiches, 1 fry, and 2 cokes was 50 bucks. Other huge issue is this is an a horrible neighborhood. A mentally ill homeless person was smacking several people in the face on our way from parking lot to restaurant. Service was ok. Did their job... More

Sent here by Dennis from the Holiday Inn Express and it was a big treat. The service was good with great advice, the servings were large and very delicious and the price was quite reasonable.
