Best combo to order at a deli: What and Where

What is your favorite combo at a deli?

I am partial to pastrami, chopped liver, tomato & red onion on rye @ Brent's or Langer's.

Infinite possibilities...

      Langer's #54 – PASTRAMI and CORNED BEEF COMBO

      Served with Sliced Bermuda Onion, Tomatoes and Greek Olives & Wild BBQ Cod

      and their #3 Hot Pastrami & Corned Beef with Swiss (3 Decker) Served with Vine-ripened Tomato and Russian Dressing.

      and of course their Black Pastrami Rueben.

      1. The definitive deli combo is a skyhigh sandwich with either pastrami or corned beef. There is something extra tasty and comforting about warm deli meats on fresh rye with Russian dressing and cole slaw. And BTW it is quite improper to put cheese on any sky high. I have had this sandwich for years and I favor Brents Deli.

          begging your pardon...but it is IMPROPER to put something like mayonnaise on a pastrami sandwich. Putting a little innocent piece of swiss on pastrami is just a step away from committing to a ruben.

            I can see your point if the sandwich was straight pastrami or corned beef but swiss doesnt belong on a sandwich with slaw.

        2. The Hollywood from Nate N' Al- hot corned beef, cole slaw and Russian dressing.

          And an order of potato pancakes for the table to share.

            The Westwood at Nate n Al's is my absolute favorite sandwich in LA - turkey with cole slaw and russian dressing

              Has anyone tried the Nate n Al's @ LAX?

            2. Hard kosher salami, Swiss and brisket on rye
