Always great pastrami

This is a great place to pick up a huge take out pastrami sandwich. They have been there for decades and always provide a great sandwich right in front of you.

Good Steak Fries too. Just don't expect more than a fair level of satisfaction from pretty much everything else on the menu...

Cheap, Affordable and talk about quantity... I never finish my food here because the portions are so huge. Onion rings are to die for and pretty cheap too. Pastrami french fries are really good as well. Would recommend for lunch or dinner for anyone around the area. Good parking but can be packed at times.

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

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.
