LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Canter’s Deli will sell its famous pastrami Reuben sandwich for 70 cents Tuesday as part of its 70th anniversary celebration.

Fans of Canter’s pastrami Reubens or its veggie counterpart can get in on the special from 4 p.m. to midnight. The sandwich comes with corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing grilled between slices of rye bread, while its meatless version comes with a veggie patty. Both are served with a homemade pickle, potato chips and a chocolate chip rugula.

The special will be limited to one per customer, dine-in only.

Canter’s Deli started in New Jersey in 1924, then moved to Boyle Heights in East Los Angeles in 1931, where it was called Canter Brothers. The 24-hour deli moved across town to its current location at 419 N. Fairfax Ave. in 1948.

    In August 2017, they were shut down by the Health Department due to a roach and rat infestation. Let’s not forget that, everyone. The management allowed an unacceptable situation to fester for YEARS before the health dept. had to finally step in and force them to close.

    Sure, they are making all sorts of claims that “it won’t happen again”… etc…. but the SAME PEOPLE are at the helm, and people don’t ‘change’. If FILTH was once OK, then this ‘new leaf’ of cleanliness is only for public display…. and I BET that they are already slipping back into BAD HABITS and it’s only a matter of TIME until someone gets sick, again.

    Nope… I’m not buying this… If you do go there, ask the manager to take you on a tour of their kitchens and food prep areas.. I BET you he will not allow it. Even though you have a RIGHT to inspect.

    LA is turning 3rd world, thanks to the unequal application of the laws and immigration hole. What do you all expect?
