I had 3 kids in diapers at one time and going out to eat with kids was always a real hit or miss thing. Seldom a hit. Good luck. I hope Roadfood inspired you to visit the place, so let us know how you liked it.

    In Katz's, I wouldn't worry a bit about the kids' behavior. You want to see behavior, go there in the wee hours when the clubs and bars start emptying out and the partiers get the munchies.

      KATZ's hands down for the pastrami and corned beef... both EXTRA LEAN... the experience itself (entering, ordering, etc.) is amazing... then you get to eat... get some soup and an egg cream, too.

        Man, you've got some real moxie! The stories about people ordering extra lean at Katz's, and the reactions of the countermen, are legendary. For my part, the more of that succulent fat the better.

          I put my corned beef that I've slathered in mustard and sprinkled with the enclosed seasoning packet, added some extra garlic and hand ground tellicherry pepper, on a rack in a lasagna pan that has an inch of water in it. I wrap with foil and bake at 275ยบ for X amount of hours (depends on the size of the beef (and the point cut works just fine). I uncover it for an hour to firm the meat up and continue cooking. Let sit for at least a half hour and have some great Jewish bakery rye bread handy. Yum yum

                    Saint Matt, I was wondering if anyone would mention Canter's, I remember them as being every bit as good as Langer's. They have a deli in Treasure Island - Las Vegas now too.

                      Some years ago when we lived in LA, Langer's offered curb service because people were reluctant to dine there due to the edgy neighborhood. So we would call in our order and give them a time and pull up to the curb and the guy would come out to your car with your order, which we would take to Dodger Stadium to eat while we watched the game. Great memory.

                      At any rate, what I remember about Langers' was the BREAD, which I believe they baked themselves and had a touch of sourness to it. Argue all you want about the meat itself, but I think you have to give Langer's the nod for best bread.

                      I have lived West, Midwest and East and in my opinion you are talking shades of grey. Langer's, Manny's, Katz's and Second Avenue - they are all freaking wonderful and I wouldn't turn down a chance to go to any (or all) of them.

                        I'll have to check out Langers.

                        It may not be Jewish delicatessan pastrami, but a place called "The Hat" has a pastrami dip to die for. There is so much meat that one could make a whole other sandwich with what falls out as you eat.

                        The pastrami is not fatty, but extremely juicy with the dip. Add a large order of fries (enough for 4) and you are in business. I get the chili or gravy on the side to dip fries into. Hungarian wax chilies on the side are heaven.

                          I've heard of The Hat, but I have never tried it. Maybe I will hit it the next time I'm out that way.

                            If you are in with nostalgia, try to hit the Alhambra one. It is one on the last hamburger type stands in the area (everything is Asian now). There is only an outside seating area at that one. The other's have inddor. It's the original place that has been there since the late 40s I believe. It's a childhood thing for me though.

                            I got so hungry for deli food I roasted a corned beef and made cole slaw. Not pastrami, but the closest thing to it.

                                Agreed! you NEED the fat! it makes it unbelievably juicy. Katz's is by far the best pastrami on the planet.. a bold statement, I know, but I stand by it.. :)

                                    I like pastrami and corned beef and I like it with a little fat. Makes it a little more juicy for me.

                                      East Side Deli in Margate, Florida, is a very good Deli, great pastrami. Pickels and rye bread on the table when you sit down.

                                        Surely you jest. Katz's is not in Los Angeles, neither was the 2nd Ave. Deli, nor the Carnegie.

                                          I envy those of you who live in deli rich areas. I have a choice of driving 60 miles to Baltimore, or the same distance to Philadelphia.I didn't know how good I had it as a kid growing up in Northeast Philly.
                                          The closest I can come to deli around here is a 2 lb kosher salami at BJ's.

                                            carlton, that deli is famous for charging quite a bit extra if you share a sandwich.

                                                  Horrors! LA? For PASTRAMI? Sounds like heresy. :)
                                                  But then again, I willingly admit that I am a Jersey snob. When I think of LA, I'm more inclined to think of tacos, hamburgers and good Korean food.

                                                        Pomperdeli on East Commercial Blvd in Ft Lauderdale Fl has the best Pastrami on Rye I've ever had and I was born in and lived half my life in Pastrami country ( NJ and NYC ) These guys in Ft Lauderdale have them all beat.

                                                        Get one with a Dr Browns cream soda and your good to go

                                                            Been awhile since I've been down that way, if it's still there try the East Side Deli on West Atlantic Avenue in Margate. FL. It's in a small strip center on the south side of the road, reminded me of the Deli's in Far Rockaway, NY, with Rye bread, Pickles, and Cole Slawn on the tables.

                                                            Speaking of pickles, after there go to the food court at the indoor flea market on Sample road for real NY pickles.
