The Hat still has a delicios pastrami sandwich, but it seems that if the portions went down and the prices went up.

Pastrami chili cheese fries. Piles and piles of pastrami atop shredded cheddar over yummy chili and perfectly fried steak fries. The crispy fries are the perfect sized to hold up to all of the topping. This requires a fork if you'd like proportionate toppings. It...More

I LOVE the Hat and will admit it does have one of the BEST pastrami sandwiched ever. Don't let the outside dinning scare you away, you will not be disappointed. Aside from pastrami, you must try the chili cheese fries and cherry coke. The potion...More

Stopped by this little drive-in not knowing what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Lots of delicious pastrami piled on the hoagie roll. I ordered the orange drink thinking it was a soda. What a nice surprise. It was...More

Ok so its not healthy. Its the best pastrami ever. This HAT is the original and their servings are generous. If you go to the other Hats they don't stuff them like this place. Friends in AZ have me pick up a cooler full before...More
