Thanks to Vacation Idea for including Langer’s Deli in their “25 best things to do in LA with kids” article, now available! Check it out!
The fine folks at LA Taco have compiled their Rogue 99, a list of their essential Los Angeles Restaurants. We are honored and grateful to be included in this important list:
A very brief but entirely correct response — panic — ensued before Norm Langer assured everyone they planned to stay, sale or no sale. Indeed, if any misguided developer even hinted at the idea of shutting down Langer’s, they’d have to contend with an entire city roaring in its defense, not only because it is one of L.A.’s most cherished institutions, but also because it is home to the greatest pastrami sandwich in the country, full stop.

SpottedByLocals.com has a new article up entitled, “Langer’s Deli – Best Jewish deli food,” featuring your favorite Jewish deli! Here’s an excerpt:
New York Times Magazine once ranked Langers’s corned beef and pastrami as the best in America (quite a compliment coming from a New York-based media organization). Indeed, their specialty is corned beef, Swiss, coleslaw, and Russian dressing on toasted rye. I don’t love corned beef or pastrami but even I indulge in both at Langer’s. My favorite is the beef brisket dip sandwich and my second favorite is the turkey and Swiss on toasted rye.
For those seeking an adventure or just a great Jewish deli lunch, I highly recommend Langer’s Deli.

93.1 JACK FM in Los Angeles has a new article up in coordination with LA EATS featuring Instagram coverage of LA’s best French fry dishes. Lucky for us, they included our Pastrami Chili Cheese Fries!
From Australia’s Michael Harry of The Canberra Times comes this terrific article that includes Langer’s Delicatessen as a must-stop for visitors to Los Angeles:
A neighbourhood favourite since 1947, Langer’s is the quintessential American deli. The steamy room, with its formica booths and sassy staff, is most famous for its #19 sandwich, a towering brick of juicy pastrami, house-made coleslaw, Russian dressing and Swiss cheese on seeded rye bread served with a hefty spear of pickle. Remember, you can always ask them to wrap up what you don’t finish and take it back to the hotel.
Just a great article! Please click here to read the whole thing. Thank you, Canberra Times and Michael!
We are honored to be named once again to Eater’s “38 Essential Los Angeles Restaurants” list for Winter 2019. It is highly prestigious and all of us at Langer’s Delicatessen are grateful for the award. Thank you, Eater!
We are proud and thrilled to have been named once again to Eater’s “38 Essential Los Angeles Restaurants” list for Fall 2018.
Yes, the No. 19 pastrami sandwich is an amazing sandwich, but the pure pastrami on house-based rye is simplicity at its best. There’s a reason why people make pilgrimages to try this place’s pastrami and even corned beef: there is no better version anywhere in town, and perhaps even in the country. Pro tip: Try the No. 54, a blend of both the pastrami and corned beef in one sandwich. And don’t skip the rest of the classic Jewish deli menu — it’s all very well executed in one of the best daytime dining rooms in town.
It’s a tremendous honor and one that we share equally with all our employees and our loyal customers who have made Langer’s possible since June of 1947. Thank you, Eater, and thank you, Los Angeles. – The Langers
Eater has published a new article entitled “19 Tourist Trap Restaurants in LA That Are Actually Good,” and we’re thrilled that they included Langer’s Delicatessen-Restaurant:
Not only is Langer’s a home for celebrities trying to low-key nosh, it’s also home to what is likely the single best deli pastrami in America. Try some on the chili cheese fries next time for a gut-busting lunch side.
We are thrilled and honored to be included in Eater’s recent “California’s 38 Best Restaurants” article by Bill Addison.
WHAT: The legendary West Coast-style Jewish deli that rivals America’s best. WHY: There is no denying the allure of Langer’s, the daytime-only Jewish deli in historic Westlake. The family-run restaurant has held down the same corner for more than 70 years, seating hungry locals and tourists by the hundreds in the wood-paneled dining room while waitstaff flit past in white shirts and, for the men, bow ties. Nearly every table gets at least one iconic #19, the house-made pastrami and coleslaw behemoth that is on par with (or better than) anything New York City has ever produced.
Jenn Harris of the Los Angeles Times recently published “In search of perfect pastrami: Your guide to the Jewish delis of Los Angeles,” which includes a roundup of delis both small and large, well known and obscure, around the LA area. We are pleased to be included:
In the Los Angeles deli world, Langer’s is king. Tourists from all over the world make the trek to Alvarado and 7th Streets for a pastrami sandwich on double-baked rye bread. And locals deem this place a national treasure.
