Sandwich, soup and fries and a soda is my usual order from Factor's.
Someting to be Famous About – This one of the old, consistent delis that won't let you down. The service staff is professional and prompt. All the food comes out the way you would expect. Much better than Jerry's Deli, which is neither Famous nor a deli!
Reuben Anonymous – A Jew's home away from home, leave it to Factor's to keep me hooked. In addition to their free wireless and sports TVs, they make the perfect reuben - three inches of meat, just enough kraut, melted swiss and perfectly toasted rye. Hi, I'm Kika, and I have a reuben problem. Hi Kika...
Decent deli food – I?m a big fan of Factors? flavorful knishes, juicy and tender pastrami sandwiches, crispy potato pancakes, and ironically for a deli, its tantalizingly cheesy mozzarella sticks. The restaurant has a relatively new buffet line of hot, side-dish deli classics, including mac & cheese as well as mashed potatoes. Rich pretty much sums up the majority of the desserts Factors offers, including its lemon and brownie bars as well as its blackout chocolate cake. You can order off the menu in the dining room, decorated with movie posters and other memorabilia, or get take-out from deli and dessert counter. The restaurant also delivers to within a three-mile radius, but service is slow, so be sure to put in your order a good two hours before you want to eat. What also makes Factors unique among the other delis in the Pico-Robertson region is that a) it?s not a kosher restaurant b) it?s open from Friday to Saturday night during the weekly Jewish Sabbath.
Poor Service, Poor quality food – I read about the deli as the 9th best deli in LA out of 10. I wanted to love this place, but I couldn't. The meat was tough and fatty. The coffee cold. We waited 10 minutes for 2 glasses of water. Parking was awful. No, I cannot recommend this place. I'd rather enjoy Nate N Al's on Beverly Drive.
best deli in LA – I'm not a big deli fan, but I love Factor's. You can actually have a healthy meal here while your company is having a cholestoral binge. They have amazing salads which are so huge they can be shared. The crowd is mixed ages as opposed to the competition which makes you feel like you are in a senior center. They deliver take-out deli platters, etc. great for a casual event like a sports gathering or kids' party. The owner is friendly and usually there.
Neighborhood deli combines a New York-style menu with L.A. glitz. – In Short
This vast eatery's movie poster-lined walls surround comfy booths and tidy tables. Crowds ebb and flow, but do-it-yourselfers continuously cruise the deli counter for take-home treats. Beef or turkey pastrami comes piled high: Mounds of thinly sliced meat, coleslaw and Russian dressing wedged between two slices of rye are the order of the day, while sides include knishes, matzo ball soup and kasha varnishkas. As for dessert, expect everything from simple meringue cookies to calorie-laden brownie sundaes.
Home of the Flavorless Omelette – Factors would not be the place to go for a really tasty omelette unless you prefer something unseasoned and bland. Perhaps we made a mistake in ordering the brisket omelette. My wife smothered it in tobasco (she likes her spice) but it still couldn't be saved. Their sandwiches and soups are tasty, however. I like that the waitresses are old school and personable. Good luck finding a parking spot.
Great restaurant for everyone – Factors is a great alternative to the fast declining Jerry's Deli and the other LA staple, Canters. The menu selection is comparable in all three, and the quality of Factors food is pretty good overall. It's a very reasonable place for breakfast, service is quick and friendly. Parking can be an issue, especially at weekends. On the upside, I have taken large groups here (>10) and have not had to wait long for seating - of course, peak times (early at weekends) can be very busy, but I always find this a good sign. Overall, I'd recommend this place for breakfast and for large groups who have varied likes/dislikes.
Great Sandwich – Factor's is fantastic! My lunch usually consists of sandwich, soup and fries. Factor's is by far the best deli in Los Angeles. I actually live directly behind Cantor's and drive all the way to Factor's because it's that much better. I think the only deli that can compare the Factor's is Second Avenue Deli in NYC.
