Langers Deli #19 for breakfast ?

I will be passing by Langers Deli in the morning during an upcoming visit to Los Angeles. I would love to try the #19 there.

But do you know, if they serve them for breakfast as well? And are they to much for a breakfast meal, if you know what I mean? :-)

  1. The answer is yes.

    I routinely opt to go to Langer's when they open and always get a pastrami sandwich. As it turns out, quite a number of other diners do the same thing.

            oh my god the line for this will stretch all the way to the noho redline station.

              And it's for dine-in service only, which will make the wait even longer.

                ................and from me, please tip your waitress even if it's free.

    2. The perfect langers breakfast is a #19 + fries well done + corned beef hash on the side.

        they don't do fries in the morning :( they do hash brown instead. i think they bring out the fries after 10am ?

        1. re: rickym13

          I've had the same experience. We usually get the hash browns or the fruit plate if we're feeling like fooling ourselves that it will balance out the pastrami. And I always get the same look and general comment from the waitress when doing so. "The fruit plate? Hmmm - let me ask the kitchen if we're doing that right now..."

          1. re: rickym13

            I guess it's because I don't start breakfast until after 10am lol so I've never encountered that problem.

            1. re: rickym13

              yeah had that issue but it was almost 10, so had the first course of #19 and a second course of chilli cheese fries

              good times

                What sacrifices a Hound will make in order to secure their chili fries... :)

            2. re: ns1

              NS1... that is just a magical vision. I get the first two all the time but the corned beef hash is taking it to another level of perfection.

            3. I go for the regular pastrami sandwich and order two for breakfast. With one #19, you'll be doing great!
