Question for Langer's #19 fans

Do you have a second favorite sandwich at Langer's?

If there was no #19, what would you get instead?

I often find myself at Langer's with friends and not being a fan of the #19 (or any of their pastrami sandwiches for that matter), I'm wondering if there's something else equally worthwhile.

    1. #44 - HOT PASTRAMI, Sauerkraut and Nippy Cheese Grilled on Rye.

        Have to say - can't see why you'd want nippy (american) cheese on the pastrami reuben instead of swiss. Then again, many a purist would get after me for putting pastrami and reuben in the same sentence .

        I like the #44 better than the #19 myself - Langer's kraut is great whereas the slaw is not stellar.

          If you ask they will make it with swiss.

            I've had it with swiss and it is definitely worth getting if you're not a fan of the #19.

      2. #1. Same as #19, but no cheese.

        1. you know, last time i went i wanted to do the half pastrami with soup so i wouldn't eat so much yet i could not help myself from ordering the number 19. i've only had the #44 besides the 19 and the plain, but felt the sauerkraut took up too much flavor. i just can't resist the 19.
          my coworker got the steak sandwich and he didn't like it; my other coworker got the brisket french dip and he loved it.

          1. The No. 1 is my favorite. The additional piece of cheese on the No. 19 is too much gilding on that lily
