Langers has been selling pastrami here forever and time has not been kind to the area, but you must ignore that, and you will forget as soon as you walk through the door. Actually the same applies to other pastrami icons around the world. Katz of NY is also in an old part of town while Carnegie in NY and Blooms in London have both gone. It is a complex and skilled process to make pastrami properly, and needs the proper caraway seed rye bread with dill flavoured pickles. I can only offer pictures of sandwiches which do not do the food justice, but that was my choice. They actually have a massive menu of traditional Jewish food. If your schedule in LA allows you to come out here then Langers should be a must do. Cannot recommend highly enough, and I have tried most of them around the world.

What can I say? The number 19 is a sandwich made in heaven! That pastrami was quite possibly the best I've ever had. Langer's is no fancy restaurant perched on a prime location (it's in a pretty rough part of LA actually) but the trip was so worth it. Parking is also readily available about less than half a block away.

Go for the #19! (on rye, of course - the bread is great)
If you must, have the corned beef, but on your second visit.

Great food in a dismal location, but well worth the schlep.

What can I say about Langer's? Its an institution ! If you havent been to this restaurant, Pls go and you wont regret it. You dont have the luxury of time,no problem they have curbside pick up that you can call in ahead. I just wish they open late( pls check hours) other than that you will keep coming back.....gtd....

They have been in business for so long I cannot remember and their pastrami and corned beef is as good as and better than Carnegie was when they were in NY. Kanters, Labels, Brent's, etc. do not hold a candle and if you question that go there. They close at 4.
