“A little too greasy for my taste”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

The Hat has a huge following, and I may be in the minority, but my experiences with the Hat have always involved fat. Grease dripping on my pants, fat pooling in the wrapper, etc. The food is okay -- hot pastrami is the house special, but I have always been turned off by how greasy the food is (pastrami especially, but also the fries,etc.).
