We called ahead for curb service. I liked that the person who took our order asked what color and model of car we were driving so she could look out for us. She also told us the total and asked how much we'd be paying so they could have the change ready. Clever!
You know how much I love staring into a white paper bag and seeing food.
We ordered the #10 — hot pastrami, a slice of Swiss cheese and Russian dressing on hot rye for $12.70. Although the #19, the same sandwich, but with cole slaw for $13.45 is the deli’s most popular sandwich.
O. M. G. The pastrami was amazingly fall-apart tender, juicy, and flavorful. According to their website, Langer’s has served more than 4 million pounds of pastrami since it opened. Langer's also double bakes the bread so that the crust stays crispy.
Although I thought the sandwich was pricey, after biting into it, I was so blown away that it was totally worth it.
Really, really amazing pastrami.
Who else ate at Langer's?
Well, pretty much everyone has, but cousin Q did try their #19 with cole slaw.
