Stopped in for lunch with the baby. Very busy at two in the afternoon. Limited parking in the lot. Very limited seating inside. Service was great. Order taken quickly and correctly. Food was delivered in a reasonable amount of time. Food was fantastic.

I'm not a pastrami fan but the hubby is so we tried The Hat from a recommendation from a cousin who loves pastrami sandwiches. We might have over expected our experience as we were disappointed to only like the sandwich. There's a lot of meat...More

I've been going here for a long time. Their signature pastrami is really good and I crave it from time to time. Not good for people on diets due to its mountain of meat in the sandwich. I've actually done it where I would buy...More

What is good is a matter of taste. I like the burgers at Tops and The Hat. They are a little different, but personally I don't prefer one over the other. The Hat is a little pricier than McDonald's or Jack In The Box, and... More
