Okay, this is probably the thousandth time I have been to the LA institution, so I finally wanted to show some appreciation for the place. It does not really need a review since almost everyone in LA knows what to expect, but screw it, I'll do one anyways.
The best thing to get if you are going with another person is a Pastrami Sandwich and an order of Chili Cheese Fries w/ Onion.
The pastrami is good for what it is and will match if not beat any fast food type pastrami. Salty, juicy, and full of flavor. Definitely a must order. Get the bread extra grilled and crispy if you like a little bite in the bread.
As for the chili cheese fries, you have to add onion. The crunch and the flavor only enhances the already epic chili cheese fries. Again, a decent chili cheese fries, although I have had better. You can also skip the pastrami sandwich and just get the chili cheese fries and add onion and pastrami instead. I have done that before but I really like my chili cheese fries and pastrami separate. Oh, and this bad boy is literally a mountain of fries, chili, cheese, and the optional onion.
Thanks The Hat, for serving Southern CA for all these years!!!
