    Stepping inside I forgot about the fake glamorized shell of Hollywood and felt reminded of the grit and hardworking class lifestyle of the city of L.A. Excellent French dip sandwiches & history.

    Pastrami is salty, bread is soft, potato salad is creamy and the coleslaw is sweet. All delicious. Over priced sandwich though to be honest.

    Opened 1908 at another location. Historic deli. Also claims to have invented French dip. At this location since 1951.

    Try the Lamb Dip, double dipped with cheddar cheese and a side of coleslaw!

    Brandyn Dungca · January 18
  • Thomas C.

    Nothing more to add that you don't already know. Come hungry, leave satisfied. Just get whatever looks good. Recommend extra house mustard as well at least a double dip

    Thomas Colton · January 11
  • Josh W.

    Double Dip is the move

    Josh Wilson · January 7

    I'm a Beef Dip kinda guy and they make a classic. Chili is something I always get and the potato salad is very good. One of a kind mustard.

    I have no idea how they make money...feels like it's been transported out of the 50's

    The classic French dip turkey sandwich cannot be missed!

    Natalie Moreno · October 23, 2015
  • Cherith Z.

    Sandwiches are tasty, none of the other food is worth it. Service is slow, avoid during Dodger games. An LA institution with a Midwestern brat haus vibe

    Really good French Dip beef sandwich. I ordered "single dip" & still tasted great. Added potato salad & pickles. Ordered a glass of ice tea and the grand total was $11.40. A must for any foodie.

    A storied tradition that doesn't warrant a return trip.

    Make sure your sandwich is doubled dipped for extra flavor. The cole slaw is bomb.

    Good sandwich. Lines move quickly. I had the beef double dipped, but will get wet next time. Mustard is very spicy and goes very well with the sandwich.

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