This retro sandwich shop has been a landmark in Culver City since the '50s, offering fans late-night guilty pleasures in the form of hearty sandwiches for decades. Right away, you'll spot the old-school sign out front, and the throwback style continues on the inside, where you'll find tiny jukeboxes at the booths and a cash-only policy. It's packed with locals throughout the day, but many come in at midnight or later after imbibing to indulge in classic shaved pastrami sandwiches and chili fries. The pastrami is warm, super-thin, and piled high.
Not to be confused with the thick-cut stuff you get at delis like Langer's, this classic Culver City diner specializes in the piles of shredded pastrami made famous by The Hat (and others). Pick a song on the old-school mini-jukebox, then grab the jus-dipped sandwich in your fist and go to town.
