If you like pastrami done right then this is your place! Great food, fast service, and you won't leave hungry. When you order a side of fries, you can share them with the whole table.

The Hat has the very best pastrami sandwiches you will ever have. Loaded with meat for a cheap price. Their other sandwiches as good as well. A small order of fries is enough for 3-4 people. Good food for a great price.

Order the pastrami! This is a good sandwich shop, especially if you love a pastrami sandwich. There isn't anything fancy, but a solid sandwich and cool orange whip (Creamsicle) soda!

Been twice, pastrami was tough both times . I feel this place is way overrated, and is it really world famous?

This place is good. Lots of condiments.. good fries. Good pastrami DIP. If you want juice on the side, you have to ask. Hamburgers are good. Service is quick as everything is made to order. Best pastrami in Simi for sure.

When I'm near by, I head to Hats. Pastrami is delicious and very generous portion and so moist. Too many fries share them if you come. I usually end up bringing half the Pastrami sand and fries home and have another great meal later

The Hat makes really good food, cooked to order and in quantities that satisfy even the biggest of appetites. Also, it is dangerous for one person to place an order for 'large fries.' They come in a big paper bag and the order is enough...More

Burgers and all the sandwiches I have tried are expensive but very good. Pastrami is their signature and worth trying at least once. Large fries or large onion rings are actually a bag full and suitable for the whole family. Easily the amount of 2...More
