LOS ANGELES (CBS) — One of the city’s legendary eateries was handing out free pastrami sandwiches on Friday in honor of its 65th anniversary.

KNX 1070’s Pete Demetriou reports hungry Angelenos began lining up early in MacArthur Park to celebrate the legacy of Langer’s Delicatessen.

The deli will be open for extended hours until 9 p.m. to offer its signature “No. 19” pastrami sandwich for free to dine-in patrons only.

“Pastrami, cole slaw, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing on hot, crispy rye bread” is how owner Norm Langer described the dish.

The family-owned eatery also is offering Metro riders an exclusive way to participate in the festivities.

Langer’s Deli will be open on Friday, June 15 from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Saturday, June 16 from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
