Went to dinner here on strength of reviews. I was looking forward to the pastrami but was disappointed to find shaved bits of very fatty meat. Maybe it's just me, I'm not a fan of fatty meat and this was just too much for me...More

My favorite Hat location is in Rancho Cucamonga. I would say this one doesn't have quite the same level of service, but the food is still great and I take my family and friends to try when they are in town.

The Hat never disappoints, whenever we are in LA we always stop at the hat. I really have only had their pastrami sandwiches but I am sure that the other food would meet the quality of the pastrami sandwiches.

This place feels like an old-fashion fast food place but the taste is certainly gourmet. The best pastrami dip sandwich we have ever had. And you better be hungry, the sandwich is huge and the sides are served in brown paper lunch bags. 11 locations...More

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.
