I love langer's pastrami but i have trouble thinking of the restaurant as an "ultimate" RESTAURANT...

I love Langer's Pastrami. It's incredible. I take out of towners to langer's all the time. I even bought David Sax's new book "Save the deli" and skipped the intro and ny section to read his analysis of langer's first. But my question comes on the heals of the Ultimate LA restaurant poll which Langer's just won...the pastrami is amazing, of course, but why are people ranking the restaurant so high? from what i can tell, very few folks eat anything besides the pastrami. many chowhounders haven't even tried anything else on the menu. I guess in my book, an ultimate restaurant needs to have multiple food items that bring me in. I hope I'm being clear here. it's not that i dislike langer's. i love it, but i love it for the pastrami, not for anything else on the menu. So, for the people that ranked it so high...enlighten me: Did you cast your vote purely for the pastrami? are there other things you order but don't write about on this site? is it the curbside service? Thanks, in advance.
