I wasn't too sure about a Pastrami French Dip Sandwich. There was a lot of meat on the sandwich, the broth to dip it in was a little weird. We sat outside on a picnic table and ate. The server was great and very funny....More

Loved the pastrami and I vanilla shake. Sandwich was decent and shake was made like old school. Been wanting to try this place it has been here since 1952. Will try the hamburger next time. Parking is a bit of a challenge.
