If your looking a great Pastrami sandwich, then you have got to go here. Alhambra is the original, but there are several other restaurants in and around LA. The meat is great and they dip the bun in the juice. If you haven't tried one and you're close it is a must stop in food. If you love a good... More

I would not call the Hat a deli. What I would call it is a sandwich shop, and a good one at that! Try the French dip.

Very good French Dip although next time I’ll try it with gravy instead of the au jus which was quite weak. However, the hamburger was excellent! Fantastic onion rings. Portions were huge! Like Orange Bang? Try Lemon Bang! This is one of those places that makes the Los Angeles area such a great place to eat!

Whatever you order, you will be a happy camper. They have picnic tables in the back if you want to eat there, but it's mostly a take out place. The food is very good, customer service is brisk. Know what you want before you get up to the counter. People behind you in line can be impatient. I eat there... More

If you eat only one pastrami sandwich a year, as you should, eat it at the Hat! Any of their multiple locations are good...the seem to be 2nd only to McDonalds in terms of corporate "sameness" at every restaurant. Killer chili cheese fries, cause I like skinny fries & thickly shredded cheese...burgers are awesome, naturally the pastrami is the showcase.... More

I have eaten at 5 different hat locations and I LOVE every one of them. It is quite possibly the best sandwich I have ever eaten. Get the Pastrami sandwich. It is absolutely amazing. Be careful with the fries. 1 order can feed 3-4 people.
