Ventura County

Roxy's Famous Deli

1345 E Thousand Oaks Blvd, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362

Los Angeles Delis

Langer's Delicatessen-Restaurant

704 S Alvarado St, Los Angeles, CA 90057

At the same location since 1947, this Mac Arthur Park institution is only open till 4pm daily, but that hasn't stopped the hoardes of Jewish-comfort-food-seeking Angelenos from coming here year after year.


2379 Westwood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064

Opened in 1959 by Marvin Saul--the unofficial Mayor of Westwood Boulevard--this family deli is like taking a step back in time. Aside from all the basics (lox and bagel, corned beef sandwiches, cabbage soup), this family favorite bakes all their breads, rolls, cakes and cookies at the restaurant's onsite bakery.

Nate 'N' Al Deli & Restaurant

414 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

One of the (very) few unpretentious spots in the 90210, this old-school deli serves up East Coast-style eats even Larry King can't resist. It's also the only deli in L.A. County where you'll get wild nova salmon and certified Angus corned beef. (It is Beverly Hills, after all.)

Art's Delicatessen

12224 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604

With a tagline that reads "Every Sandwich is a Work of Art," this airy cafeteria-style dining room is like a breath of fresh air ... straight from the '50s. Opened in 1957 by Art Ginsberg (who still makes the rounds every week), this Valley favorite is the kind of place where everybody knows your name and the portions are big enough to practically feed a village.

Canter's Deli

419 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036

What makes this classic deli so unique aside from its cool-kid location on Fairfax Avenue, its onsite bakery and the attached Kibitz Room where local bands rock out every night of the week? Why, it's open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!

Brent's Delicatessen & Rstrnt

19565 Parthenia St, Northridge, CA 91324

Tucked inside a strip mall, this Northridge landmark's comfy booths envelop boisterous crowds diving into New York-style deli food like breakfast-for-dinner options: Try the lox, eggs and onions, a plateful of matzo brei or cheese-stuffed blintzes.

Factor's Famous Deli

9420 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90035

This neighborhood deli combines a New York-style menu with L.A. glitz. Think movie poster-lined walls surrounding comfy booths and tidy tables piled with mountain-high beef and turkey pastrami sandwiches and other comfort favorites like knishes and matzo ball soup.

Orange County

Katella Deli-Restaurant-Bakery

4470 Katella Ave, Los Alamitos, CA 90720

Inland Empire

Ray's Downtown Deli

168 S E St Ste E, San Bernardino, CA 92401

One of San Bernardino's liveliest and most affordable spots, this three-in-one deli/bar/dancing destination serves up weekly lunch specials for well under $10.
