Didn't have the pastrami this chain is known for but a burger instead. Burger was very good & had lots of meat & fixin's.

The burger & a lot of things on their menu seemed overpriced EXCEPT for the fries. They give you A TON for your money. Minus a couple points though for being bland (easy enough to fix.)

Also knocking this down was the customer service. Even in the drive through line the lady seemed really annoyed with her tone for no reason. Someone doesn't enjoy their job?

Stopped here on the way back from Lake Havasu late last Sunday night. The place was packed both inside and outside at 8PM. The line moved quickly to order and a stroke of luck found us with a table. The food was ready for pick up quickly at the counter. We had a corn dog and two Roast Beef sandwiches with AuJus. They were tasty and if you aren't super hungry consider splitting the sandwich, portions are good size - not huge, not small.

Considering how many people this place holds, the city of Rancho Cucamonga should be ashamed of themselves for allowing just one toilet for men and one for women. And to have the sink and toilet in just one room - this place is always packed and needs 2-3 stalls, 2 sinks and a changing table. The line for the bathroom was ridiculous. When I finally got in there - of course there was no toilet paper and the bathroom was dirty. I had planned ahead and had a tissue in pocket. I went to the front and reported the TP out and within a few minutes the staff did get TP into the bathrooms. So they scored high for taking care of the immediate issue - but I strongly recommend you not count on that bathroom as being available.

Stopped here because I was in the area, and friends have raved about the place. I had their signature Pastrami sandwich with mustard and pickles. The meat and bun were very fresh, moist, and delicious. Service was pretty good, though with only one order inside ahead of me it was obvious drive-thru gets first priority.
I would recommend this restaurant if you want a great pastrami sandwich. They have burgers, hot dogs, etc. too.

The place was packed on a Saturday night. The pastrami was very tender and had good flavor. The chili cheese fries were good, if you order them plan to split them.The Hat does give your moneys worth.

Wish :The Hat" was in Las Vegas, NV. Best Pastrami sandwich, and enough fries or onion rings to for all 3 of us.
