You might spend a little time while walking back and forth trying to find Reggie’s (tip: it’s in the Citibank), but once you’re inside this family-run deli in Echo Park, you’ll be in the presence of great sandwiches and super-fast service. They have all the traditional deli things - reubens, wraps, salads - so order what looks good, although you should probably make sure that includes the BEC on a bagel. And if you’re a person who can’t make decisions, there’s a great lunch special that includes a half-sandwich and soup or salad for $10.
