pastrami is my personal favorite sandwich. Mines has to be with cream cheeze and on pumpernickel.


me again.


Unlike a lot of other burger joints that serve pastrami, The Hat doesn't fry the cured meat which makes it less greasy. Also the fries are almost always served fresh and in huge portions. I highly recommend the chili cheese fries and the wet fries (smothered in brown gravy).


Ah, The Hat. I've been a fan for over 35 years... My dads office in Alhambra was right across the street from the original Hat. Best pastrami sandwich in SoCal. I wished they'd open one somewhere in San Diego. Thanks for the review and the memories!


Hi Ron...pumpernickle, yes...cream cheez..hmmm..I'd try it...Thanks for the link; I hope the sandwiches there are as good as they look.
Hi gc-yes, the chili cheese fries and the gravy on the fries is excellent. I forgot to mention...and didn't even attempt to try to transport for 2 hours..I *knew* that would not taste the same.
Hey Joe- Thanks for visiting...The Hat is kind of one of those places we seem to take for granted...I was glad I had my camera with me. This blogging is fun...and I'm happy to share.


Had to take a friend to Huntington Beach yesterday and we stopped by the Hat in Lake Forest! Thank you for reminding me about The Hat... my friend loved it too!


This comment made me sooo happy, Joe...You're welcome!...
