    The service here is quite friendly,. I have come a very long way, here, and I had the white fish sandwich, and I must say it is very good and worth the trip even though my friend lives over here.

    Umm... Black Forest Pastrami! Cabbage rolls! The only thing missing at this location is the fountain drinks like their other location has. And chicken fried steak. Otherwise it's a gem!

    Came here to have a tasty deli sandwich, but it was too early. Very pleasantly surprised that they would have excellent guacamole wrapped into a fresh breakfast burrito. Best I've had.

    Opened in 1967. Classic late ’60s Jewish deli with forest green & gold booths, etched glass, brick walls.

    Killer combination Cabbage soup (it's fantastic) & 1/2 pastrami sandwich. Ask 4 bread brought to the table; enough delicious meat in the Brent's 1/2 to make two regular 1/2 sandwiches.

    Corned beef hash is a must. Such flavorful pastrami. Kathy was a dear. It may have taken forty years to get out of the desert, but only 10 minutes to inhale breakfast. Worth the trip.

    At Brent's, an LA sandwich institution, the smoked pile of peppered-at-the-edges pastrami seem to multiply endlessly with every bite. There is something more at work than just your average reuben.

    Skirt steak tacos and fried zucchini are to die for!! Matzo ball soup is great and the tongue sandwich for oldies. Place is a bit pricey but definately worth it. Great service.

    The Heartstopper is AMAZING. Portions are very generous. Asked if we'd like bread at the beginning; we didn't realize it was complimentary. Half a sandwich later we were all glad for our mistake!

    The black pastrami reuben was really great, so much flavor. Get it with a side of curly fries.

    Corned beef reuben is great. They have a cucumber salad that is a great alternative to coleslaw. I don't care for the potato salad. Skinny and curly fries are best. Free rye bread, just ask for it!

    Great food. It's always busy but it's worth it. I've been coming here since I was a little boy with my parents and grandparents.

    The matzo ball soup is very filling. From the ball of matzo, and the noodles it's carbtastic.

    Best deli anywhere in the world. Even their pastrami is better than anything in NYC. Zagat rates it a 26+ more than 10 yrs in a row. Simply a deli must do in the Valley and L.A,

    The latkes here are huge. One is the size of a burger patty. It's served with sour cream and cherry apple sauce.

    The Monte Cristo sandwich was delicious. This was my first time at the restaurant and the place was crazy, busy, bit I suspect this is the norm. From looking around, no one seemed to mind. :-)

    Maybe the best pastrami in SoCal. At least right up there with Langers.
