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

I am a Hat regular. I love their pastrami, it is one of the best I have ever had. The wet fries are awesome too. You cannot go wrong with The Hat.

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.

For those who love spicy, meaty sandwiches, you have to try this one. You get at least an inch and half of meat and generous amount of mustard sandwiched between 2 buns. Eat it quickly before it gets too soggy and don’t forget to compliment it with plenty of peppercini. Warning: do not eat this before your date, you are... More

It's fun, and not at all healthy. If you want to get that annual burger fix, this is not a bad place to go! Only bummer is you have to pay extra for grilled onions, or other small additions.

If you want the best pastrami sandwich ever go to The Hat. It is literally like 2 sandwiches shoved into 1. Definitely recommend it.
