Great pastrami

Loved the portion size--big enough for my husband and I to split--long lines but worth it. Food was great

It was "OK" prices a little high food was fresh/good, service could have been better, it seemed to be understaffed for the amount of business, this resulting in slower service and over all up keep with the dinning area and tables

Thye provide a brief menu of hot and cold meat delectables. The patrami dip sandwich is huge and tasty anad cna be shared between two people. I would pass on the orange bang drink, a bit sweet for our taste.

Moist, flavorful, and big, big portion of pastrami. I usually have to add condiments to any burger or sandwich to make it suit my tastes--especially to ensure it isn't too dry. This pastrami sandwich was perfect the way it was! My husband and I stopped here because we had made a special trip to shop in Rancho Cucamonga, and although... More

Casual setting. Lots of seating inside and out. The Pastrami sandwich was so thick and piled with slices of moist pastrami that we were able to share one sandwich between two of us (adult women). Their Pina Colada Bang is a tasty cool drink to try.

I am very picky when it comes to my Pastrami sandwiches! The sandwiches that are served are piled high with meat and make your mouth water just to look at them! Keep up the good work! Whoever owns this restaurant is "pure genius"!!!!!!
