Food is excellent but limited choices. Service is quick so no need to order ahead. Dine in with plenty of seating or take food to go. Nice size portions. Chili fries are a must!
The Hat never fails with its pastrami sandwich. This is a real treat that I always need when traveling to California. Add the wet fries [FF with Brown Gravy] you will be in Heaven!
They are big, meaty, lean and fantastic! The fries are made to order so they are hot. I always get some yellow peppers then I squeeze the juice on the pastrami...oh so good! You can sit and eat or take it home to enjoy. The price is perfect for this historical west coast fast foot location.
The Hat is always a great stop for a Great Meal with Large Portions. The severce is quick and friendly. The Patrami Dip is Outstnding and can easly be a meal for two. The Pastrami is lean and thinly sliced. The Fries are Excellent and again the Portion is enough for a few people. Their Hamburgers are also Very Tastey... More

We stopped after the Rose Bowl and three vans of police officers who worked the Rose Bowl arrived with us, so that tells yo this must be a local favorite.

If you're looking for the kind of pastrami you find in a New York deli, don't go to the The Hat. But, if you're looking for something juicy, divinely greasy, salty and sublime do go to The Hat. It's not an every day event for me but an occasional, fantastic treat. Indulge yourself.
We had the famous pastrami sandwich with French fries with chili and cheese plus onion rings and just one comment those side dishes are huge and the six of us could not finish it without sacrificing our pastrami sandwiches. Next trip will try the roast beef au jus.
Excellent Roast Beef au Jus and Pastrami sandwich. If you pay for a large Fries, be ready for the big bag of Fries. Delicious and not greasy. Clean place as well as restroom. Highly recommended for a casual lunch break.
They have a good system. Always crowded but worth the wait.
