  • Try the Pastrami Chili Cheese Fries
  • If you're looking to try something different, their cold turkey avocado sandwich is good choice!!! Oh so yummy.
  • While I enjoy a classic grease bucket burger, The Hat has taken the idea to the extreme. The picture shown is a single order of onion rings which came in the brown bag stuffed to the brim.
  • Chili cheese pastrami fries...that's all I have to say
  • Gotta get the Pastrami Burger!!!
  • If you get the chili cheese fries plan on sharing them. Orders are big enough to feed 4 and oh so yummy!
  • Pasadena icon The Hat is known for their heart-stopping pastrami, but it may be best put to use atop a loaded mound of fresh fries.
  • Pastrami Fries - Yes, these are fries covered in a warm, cozy blanket of pastrami and cheese.
  • If you're going to order the chili cheese pastrami fries you better bring three people or be a linebacker lol
  • Make sure to share the onion rings or chili cheese fries with 2 other people. The servings are huge.
  • Food is SO good, make sure you either are VERY hungry or will be sharing the fries and onion rings with at least 2 other people!!!
  • Burgers are crap
  • Everything is fracking enormous. ...except the drinks. The drinks are two sizes smaller than anywhere else in America.
  • Not known for it, but best hot dogs and onion rings!
  • Best pastrami dip ever. HUGE order of chili cheese fries.
  • Never get a burger or a sandwich AND fries. You won't finish.
