A good deli and a staple in L.A.. As you would expect a large portion of meat on their sandwiches. It seemed to me they use to take more care in trimming the fat of some.of their sandwiches. Still I say to give it a taste.

One of the best Jewish Deli's in Los Angeles. And it's open 24 hours and it is even open on Christmas. Forget Chinese food. This is the place to go on Christmas.

Can't leave without saying hi to Rodney Bingenheimer 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Sit by the stairs. You might sit in Rodney's seat or you might see 🎸Anthony Kiedis walk by to take a piss. Great Food. 🀄Friendly Staff. Good Dessert

Classic old school Jewish Deli. I've only come for the pastries and haven't dined in since all my peoples complain about how horrible their food is. Sweets tho are passable. Love the Rugulas and although their Cheesecake isn't NY style it kinda sorta hits the spot when those sweet-tooth cravings kick in. I like to get mine topped with Strawberries. Though I'm not a regular now I used to come here a lot back in the day when I was getting my full back tat done down the street at Will Rise Tattoo. After each weekly session I'd stop by the shop to pick up a variety of sweets to take home. It wasn't anything special but after a few hours of torturous needlework I'd be fiending for sugar and this was my quick fix solution lol. Nothing I'd drive out of my way for now, I'd only stop in if it were convenient.

Been going to Canter's for years and what I recently realized, after ordering some food to go, is that I go there for the ambiance... NOT the food. Brisket sandwich was fatty and tasteless. Stuffed cabbage was greasy and tasteless. Mashed potatoes were absolutely disgusting yet it was hard to define why exactly. We weren't sure if it was the texture, the odd oily taste or just how seriously bland they were. So go have fun at 2 in the morning... but the food is pretty awful.

Service was obnoxious. I sent a list of the problems on Canter's site and with an actual letter - without an acknowledgment. The food is okay, but part of the experience is the service and the atmosphere, a very tense one even among servers, cashiers... Needs better management, better service.

Foods not great here. Very tasteless.This is a very legendary place though. It's an OK place to go as a last resort super late with a large group of friends or something. Once again, food is not great.
