Since I was one of the VERY first customers at the Alhambra location I have watched The Hat go the way of all fast food places. Raise prices and cut quality.
Last time I went was a year ago to the Glendora store. Looked like the pastrami was run through a shredder.
Go to Grand Burger In Glendora for a good pastrami.

if this is not great pastrami,...

if this is not great pastrami, te i dont know what is. this is the place to go to if you want to enjoy a juicy, mouth watering, and huge pastrami sandwich. those fresh french rolls make it extra delicious..

Best pastrami in SoCal

Ever since Togos went to a lower grade of pastrami and microwaves instead of steaming, The Hat is the only game in town for classic pastrami. I recommend the double-dip au jus.

If you ask nicely, they'll pack a 'lunch kit - with the ingredients and bun and au jus packed separately so you can put it together and nuke it up for lunch the next day.

The pastrami burger with cheese is also awesome, and only order the onion rings if you and company have the appetite to poli

Good pastrami, I guess

The deli-style sandwiches are good, but pretty greasy. If you're going to get one, I recommend wasing it down with a large Orange B@ng and some chili cheese fries.

Bland Food

Knowing that the Hat is world-famous, we trekked over to this pastrami institution expecting great things. Although it's a good deal to eat there, the pastrami is overpriced, the chili is bland, and the gravy is overdoing it. Their burgers are great, the steak sandwich is a rip-off, but the horchata and orange bang is excellent. I wouldn't recommend this place unless you like a big bang for your buck. But order wisely, you could easily top 20 bucks at this place for two.

Great Pastrami, But Overpriced at $6.29

As mentioned, it's the leanest, thinnest, juiciest, yummiest pastrami around - but at $6.29 a la carte - no sides, no coleslaw, no green salad, no table service - it's way too expensive. Our family used to be regulars (3-4 times per month, now maybe 4 times per year), but we will be checking to see what else is out there. If the price wasn't so high, we wouldn't be looking elsewhere.

If you're looking for a mound of hand cut pastrami, go someplace like Art's or Canter's, but if you like thinly shaved -- and moist -- pastrami, get in line!

The fries are thick and crispy, and the meat is actually better than some of the traditional delis in the area.

The best is that you aren't paying 12 bucks to get a mound of dried beef between two pieces of rye-flavored parchment. This is a moist beefy sammy that you can use the roll as a napkin, and mop the meat juice fr
