Dined alone at the counter. Large pastrami and a coke. The server suggested another coke for the road as I was paying. $30 with tip! Very delicious but not enough for a repeat visit.

I always get the fish and chips but with the onion rings instead of fries. The fries are pretty bad. But, my son gets the pastrami sandwich and loves it! The beer selection is crap but the food is reasonably priced and worth the wait. Just don't ask for a milk shake!!

Cash Only. Great small place for a good hot pastrami sandwich. Love the atmosphere. Small Diner tables w/ jukebox, Individual Coin Operated selection at each of the tables inside. Great late night spot. Been coming here for years.

Delicious sandwiches in a classic lunch counter environment. The waitress gave me great instructions on how to take the bus to Venice Beach from there.

I tried the famous pastrami sandwich and a side of fries. All I can say is wow! Good old fashion thin shaved pastrami and fresh made bread super with crunchy crinkle fries. The little tabletop juke box with oldies is great. They were super fast and super friendly. I would recommend this to anyone who loves little pastrami sandwich

I think this place used to be connected to another location on Crenshaw and Adams that made the best pastramis but the area got too rough and I think they closed up, The Johnys in Culver City makes various types of Jewish deli sandwiches and compare to Langers and New York Deli with Cantors lagging behind. Prices are a little... More

If your looking for that eclectic 50's/60s scenery and look this is the place to be. The food is to die for. It is packed full of the most delicate cuts dipped in a mouth watering dip. I would recommend this to anyone looking good for an honest feed with a splash of what it was like in the good... More
