I have only been here once. My husband loves it but as a vegetarian they only had I sandwich I could eat. The sandwich consisted of tomato lettuce and a pound of avacado. It was boring and bland.

I am only in So California a couple times year, but I always make it to the Hat. Awesome pastrami and you never walk away hungry.

If you want to find a great chili dog, chili burger, chili fries, chili with chili, and fresh cooked sandwiches, then the hat is the place to go. They give you an amazing amount of french fries in a classic greasy bag and the pastrami is the best in the county! Try it for yourself!

If you can't make it to Fairfax but you are craving that pastrami sandwich... check out "The Hat". Best in all Ventura county. Layers and layers of thin sliced pastrami. Heated to perfection and a pickle on the side. So good. friendly service, nice atmosphere, good food. Burgers and fries too... but who can get pass the pastrami dip!!!

My business partner and I had a meeting in Simi this morning and, as it worked out, we finished just before noon. We decided on lunch at The Hat. The pastrami is delicious. If you like fries, you'll only need one order. It can feed 3 or 4 people. There are several locations and they are all consistently very good.

Large portions define this place along with a clean environment. Split a sandwich and fries. This was more than an ample portion.

We went straight from LAX here because we were starving and needed a quick lunch. We left stuffed because of the insane portions for their sides. The gravy fries were served on a drink tray and I think the onion ring order came with 40! The sandwiches were great and I loved all the different condiment packages. This was a... More

This is one of a few SoCal restaurants in the small chain, but it really feels like a local joint. It is very casual and the guys behind the counter are really friendly. The pastrami and the roast beef are lean and juicy - the sandwiches are huge (we usually split one!) and the chili fries with cheese are arguably... More
