Was meeting a dear friend for a quick bite, was definitely not disappointed! The pastrami was moist and oh so generously portioned! I COULDN'T FINISH IT ! Of course I was filling myself with the fries also! My friend had the cheeseburger, said it was the best in town also!

It's a pretty decent restaurant. It was really clean and I didn't have to wait forever for my food. I ordered the famous pastrami sandwich and it was definitely good. I'd recommend it for a quick laid back lunch.

Chili cheese fries! Ok that's three, but you get my point. They're huge and wonderful! AND, if you have someone you love, they're shareable, but only with someone you love. They're too good to experience with anyone else.

Years ago there was only one Hat--the one on the corner of Valley Blvd & Garfield Ave in Alhambra. All of the locations maintain the same quality. Not a place for health food, but burgers, fries and pastrami, it would be difficult to find a better place. Their portions are generous. A serving of fries is equal to about 4... More

World Famous Pastrami- What else can I say? You must try if you are in the area. The Pastrami Dip Sandwhich is the best I ever had. The chili fries are delicious, however its a mound of fries and chili, so you best bet is to share with others ( 3 to 4 others) you may want to share your... More

My family loves pastrami and they love beef dips as well. One afternoon we happened upon this Hat and decided to try it. After all, The Hat is The Hat, right? Wrong-the service was lackadaisical at best, downright rude at worst. The pastrami was dry and hard. We'd have been better off at Tops up by Colorado&Michellinda in Pasadena or... More
