    From the atmosphere to the food to the service it all works for me. They are fast. The food is great. Drinks cover the range from kids to adults. Wine is not outrageous, but it is good.

    I always get the beef dip, macaroni salad, and cherry pie. Sit in the back room and have someone tell you about the collection of street car models.

    French dip is amazing. Get it on the French roll with mustard! We stopped in before a dodger game - it was packed but totally worth it.

    I love Philippes and have been going there for 50+ years but I've came to the point where I think they've out priced me. 2 Sandwichs was $16.00 plus. Out of my price range living on a budget

    I tried the lamb wet.. it was too gamey for me and not enough au jus. The mustard is super spicy but delicious! This place is very casual and set up like a cafeteria. Will be back to try the beef dip.

    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.

    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.

    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...😑

    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!
