    Double dip lamb, beef, or turkey with a heaping amount of hot mustard. The cream of broccoli soup is delicious too.

    If they had a classic, it's be the double dip beef with American cheese. Can't go wrong.

    They claim to have invented the French dip. Get the beef with blue cheese, double dipped. The salads; coleslaw, macaroni, potato are all delicious as well.

    The Lamb & the Beef Double Dipped are best, with slaw. People wait in line for SO long. Had it once as a kid, didn't remember. Not sure what's with so much hype, all built up! Was such a let down...😑

    They do takeout here, and have tons of parking. Don't be a fool if you're around DTLA, Echo Park or the eastside. Stop by here.

    The original French dip is okay. It's ridiculous they would not give you the dip on the side for your own control. My sandwich was actually pretty dry, so make sure you get it double dipped!
