Weilers Deli Woodland Hills
My wife and I decided to go to Weilers. I haven't been there in years and now I am wondering why? The food was great. I decided on a pastrami skyhigh and a bowl of mushroom barley soup and the wife ordered brisket dip and fries. First they brought out a few slices of thick warm chewy double corn rye and butter. I found out the bread came from Bea's but it is double baked which made it extra good. The soup was delicious. It was not sweet like Brent's which was a pleasure. The sandwiches were fantastic. The slaw and potato salads were great, again not sweet for once. While I was sitting there I was thinking that something, I could not put my finger on was different. It finally dawned on me that for once in a long time it was quiet and pleasant. No big crowds, no tumult, no fighting for a table, no attitude and no vaccums running by my table like at Brent's. I decided that I can give up just a bit of quality in exchange for this pleasant experience I had. Needless to say I shall return to Weilers soon.
Weilers is good too- We visit the one on Balboa. But, yes, there's something about Brent's. Let's have a party at Brent's! :)KQ
Funny you should post...I went to Weiler's on Victory and Canoga for lunch yesterday for the first time in a few years - which was also my second time ever. It was just terrific. Lean and flavorful and HUGE pastrami sandwich that was one fo the best I've had - as it was the last time I was there. It's only drawback is that it's on the opposite side of town for me, thus the rare visitations. It's also not cheap. IIRC, it was about 12 bucks for sandwich and club soda.
I'd been to Brent's once about 5 or 6 years ago (could be more), and never had a desire to go back. Weiler's OTOH, I've missed.
