Best pastrami sandwich you can ever get anywhere, if you are not hungry one sandwich will be enough for two, best way to eat it fresh and hot on the restaurant, you have a lot of other choices but first timer you must try the pastrami sandwich, prices about $$$ but for what you get it os consider cheap!

Pastrami is their specialty and they do it well and generously. Nothing else on the menu is more than average but the service is good and you get value for your money.

This place is great and you can tell because it's ALWAYS busy. The best pastrami ever and they have really good fries that come in a huge portion. It's not cheap but it's worth it.

I'm a philly guy living in SoCal. The hat is a genuine east coast type of sandwich shop. They make the best deli sandwiches I have had in Cal. They offer very fresh,original food , genourous proportions and friendly service. My favorite is the cold beef and Swiss. Add fries and a drink and you will struggle to finish your... More

Quite possibly the best Pastrami I have ever ate. The large fries is enough for a family of four. If you get anywhere near this place, Try it.

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.
