A friend that moved from NY claimed that this is an amazing Pastrami. He was so wrong. This stuff is far far away from Pastrami and it can’t even beat the worst Pastrami Deli in NYC. Here is a neutral and objective review. I have...More

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

I know everyone raves about the pastrami Sammie’s, but the hamburgers, fried chicken and chili cheese fries are the best!!!!! Try them—-you won’t be sorry!

Over many years, including just last week, I visited Johnnie's Pastrami restaurant. Rather than order their traditional pastrami sandwich, I prefer their corned beef sandwich on rye bread. The employees are efficient, the food is consistent but the prices keep getting higher each year. Twenty...More

When I lived in Los Angeles in the 70s and early 80s Johnnie's was our "go to" hamburger joint. They had whole delicious pickles, juicy, perfectly done burgers and elderly waitresses. On a recent trip to L.A. we went back and found delicious pickles (now...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.
