Langer's Celebrates its 60th today at 1:30pm
The diversity of MacArthur Park couldn't be more dramatic than the 1940's style old school deli known for its pastrami as Langer's Deli, firmly entrenched on Alvarado, and surrounded by Central- and South American cuisine and shops.
Langer's keeps it so real that they close at 4pm and take Sundays off. They have cozy, leather booths, a big menu, and bigger servings.
LA Observed reminds us that Langer's celebrates their 60th birthday with a sweet sweepstakes (where the grand prize is $2,500 cash, and first prize is a Caesar's Palace Vegas package for two), free prizes, and some VIPs, that starts at 1:30pm, so if you haven't gotten lunch yet, you might wanna head down there!
Langers: 704 S. Alvarado, LA, 90057
