On a short trip to LA we set out to find this landmark for breakfast. It was worth the effort. A classic diner that takes the time to make things right. The service was very good, the place wasn't fancy but it was clean and...More

My favorite deli in the world. And yes I go around a few times per year and Langer’s is a must stop for great food.

Best wings around. Ask for the "Grim Reapers", hot doesn't even come close to describing them, chicken soup is great.

I am surprised I never mentioned this before. This is by far the best deli in L.A. Not all that convenient and that do not remain open in the evenings. Still, a good sandwich is sometimes worth a drive. They do have their own parking...More

The best corned beef, tongue, etc. sandwiches, chicken soup is great, extensive menu. The neighborhood is a little sketchy but they have their own guarded parking lot.

This is one of the best 2-3 pastrami's I have ever had. I visited Katz in NY Oct 2017, larger sandwiches but not as tender. The Langer's pastrami is thick cut (most pastrami's are thin sliced), it is very flavor-able and is the MOST TENDER...More

I wanted to have a top quality Pastrami on Rye when in LA and Langer’s did not disappoint. The sandwich was a bit small for a Deli style. I’m used to NY or NJ delis where I can’t finish the sandwich. Not the case here,...More

If Norm Langer is the guy who started Langers, he passed away. As to exactly who cuts the goods now, I am guessing it is the person with the big knife and gifted eyes and hands. Levity never (?) hurt anyone. If it is... More
