I love Brent's Deli. Although the location is not exactly scenic, it doesn't matter: parking is a cinch and, once inside, you're transported to the old world deli of your dreams. It's busy, noisy, friendly...cold cases show off delicious looking slices of cakes and pies...comfortable,...More

I have been to Brent's Deli many, many times over the past 35 years. It is and has been consistently excellent! They may be a little pricey but the size of their portions are very large and they certainly don't mind customers sharing or supplying...More

Probably the best in L A. Worth the drive to the Valley. You won't be disappointed just full. Pastrami, corned beef , brisket, pickles and Kishka fried the way Grandma used to

We enjoyed the pastrami sandwich but found the price to be a bit too high as well as the price of drinks . I would have given a higher rating if not for this reason.

Great service, amazing deli food. A bowl of matzoh ball soup is a full meal. But please share, so you'll have room for one of their delicious corned beef or pastrami sandwiches. Take a look at the dessert cabinet too. I never have room, but...More

Because I don't have small kids anymore, I have never noticed but I am sure they do. It's a great restaurant and child friendly.
