My family and I love eating at this restaurant! We get the pastrami sandwiches, fries or onion rings. However, it is a lot of food, so only one order of fries or rings and there more than enough for 4 people! My husband and I split the pastrami, my 17 yr old son, eats a whole one!

This place is great! Huge portions of pastrami topped with mustard and I get extra pickles. I have had A LOT of pastrami, and this is my favorite local go-to.

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.

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!
