The Hat is a fast food place that has large portions of food. It is very good and fast service. The chili cheese fries are great.

Love the pastrami, with a lot of mustard on it, great taste, and my son got the chili cheeseburger and the onion rings. The portions are huge. This is one of my favorite fast food in Simi Valley.

Not NY City Pastrami good but very good. It seemed as everything was made to order all well. The portions are HUGE. A small... More

I shouldn't be coming here because I'm on a diet. But if you're going to break your diet, do it here! I love the pastrami and the fries are great. Plus it's one of the only places you will find Orange Bang!

Yes this looks like a fast food restaurant, but the food is way to good to be fast! The Pastrami is amazing. The chili cheese fries are to die for, but share with at least four people. The staff is friendly, and helpful, with changes you would like to make to the food. The portions are large, and a sandwich... More
