    This classic Culver City fast food joint has everything from burgers to excellent pastrami. Try the chili cheese fries for something truly gut-busting. Don't skip the fruit pies either. Read more

    Best place to go for pastrami & the pickles go well with it. The only thing is that if you sit inside you'll feel every movement the person behind you is making but you can sit out by the fire pits.

    If you come here+order anything else (like a "salad" 😱.. Pfffffft!) BUT their namesake "French dip" pastrami, you're just a stupidhead. A stupid, stupid, stupidhead! (Except fries, they work well 2)

    With just a regular pastrami and some pickles, I'm set! You can even get the pickles to go! Also, make sure to ask for hot mustard for your fries!

    Opened 1952. Famous pastrami shack; original neon, vintage wood laminate counters, juke boxes at each table.

    Order the Bob's Special. Ask for the off-the-menu boat of pastrami au jus and feel your arteries beg for mercy.

    Chili fries are awesome as well. Let's be honest though, there should be at least two dollar signs on the price indicator lol

    Johnnie's pastrami makes their own pickles & boasts a mostly-original staff (trust me, they've been around a while!) great burgers + fries! Sit outside in the back around the firepit. Cash only, ATM.

    Get fries and a chili cheese dog. Dip the fries in the gallon of chili cheese that comes on the dog. Be happy.

    Not a fan. Not at all. The meat was crazy fatty and rubbery. Get on a plane right now and head for Katz's in the East Village NYC.
