If you love pastrami you have to come here. The Sandwich is to die for. Add a other of large fries and you have enough for two. A place not to pass up.

We go there for the French Dip and Pastrami. The sandwiches are large and full of flavor. A giant serving of fries and you are done. I know they have other things on the menu but this is what makes them famous. Fast delicious and fair priced, a great stop.

Any sandwich from The Hat is a real experience; but the pastrami and corned beef sandwiches are truly memorable and worth a visit to this place tucked away on a not-so-busy street in Cucamonga. I always stop here when I am in town. Try it. It does NOT disappoint.

This is the ONLY place to order a real legit pastrami! It's delicious and it's hard to finish a whole one alone but it's possible. The fries come in a huge bag so a small could probably feed two people. I usually split one order of everything with my husband because it's so much food. It's a bit pricey but... More

Stopped in for lunch and had the always delicious pastrami. Also ordered a small fries and large drink. Let me say, the pastrami and small fries were more than enough for my wife and I to share. We actually threw some fries away, we were stuffed! The three menu items ran us a total of $15, pricey, but when you... More

The Hat is a San Gabriel Valley institution that has happily spread to the IE. Excellent Pastrami dips, Good Burgers, and wonderful chili fries(or get pastrami on the Chili fries for an all-in-one Gut Bomb

At first glance, you may think this is pricey deli food. But, the portions are enormous. My husband had the Pastrami. I tried the steak sandwich. Both were twice as big as we needed but very lean, juicy and delicious. Our mistake (not because of flavor) was in ordering the onion rings. For $4.00 we got enough onion rings to... More

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