Wonderful pastrami, great fries and lots of both. We only order one sandwich and one fry because they give so much. Don't count calories here. Just go for the great food and fun.

The best pastrami we have had. We order one sandwich small fries and small chile. It is enough for two. The flavor is mouth watering and the choke is thick so you can dip you fries in it. Can be crowded but well worth the little wait.

My friend always talked of The Hat followed by showing me pictures, followed by an obscene gesture on my part. Finally I got visit, if you love pastrami and other good food you must stop here. The sandwiches are great and the don't skimp. A word to the wise, a order French fries or onion rings take a entire bag... More

We love the Hat !! The portions are large .. 4 of us share chili cheese fries. We also share the sandwiches. They have always made our order correctly. The staff is polite. It does get busy and crowded inside but totally worth it.
