I'm a philly guy living in SoCal. The hat is a genuine east coast type of sandwich shop. They make the best deli sandwiches I have had in Cal. They offer very fresh,original food , genourous proportions and friendly service. My favorite is the cold beef and Swiss. Add fries and a drink and you will struggle to finish your... More

Quite possibly the best Pastrami I have ever ate. The large fries is enough for a family of four. If you get anywhere near this place, Try it.

If you love pastrami you have to come here. The Sandwich is to die for. Add a other of large fries and you have enough for two. A place not to pass up.

We go there for the French Dip and Pastrami. The sandwiches are large and full of flavor. A giant serving of fries and you are done. I know they have other things on the menu but this is what makes them famous. Fast delicious and fair priced, a great stop.

Any sandwich from The Hat is a real experience; but the pastrami and corned beef sandwiches are truly memorable and worth a visit to this place tucked away on a not-so-busy street in Cucamonga. I always stop here when I am in town. Try it. It does NOT disappoint.

This is the ONLY place to order a real legit pastrami! It's delicious and it's hard to finish a whole one alone but it's possible. The fries come in a huge bag so a small could probably feed two people. I usually split one order of everything with my husband because it's so much food. It's a bit pricey but... More

Stopped in for lunch and had the always delicious pastrami. Also ordered a small fries and large drink. Let me say, the pastrami and small fries were more than enough for my wife and I to share. We actually threw some fries away, we were stuffed! The three menu items ran us a total of $15, pricey, but when you... More
