    Old school classic. Have to appreciate a shop that doesn’t bow to the pressures of LA new. They know who they are, what they’re great at and they just focus on that. Props.

    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

    Order any sandwich "double dipped". Avoid adding cheese (it takes away from the meat's natural flavor and moisture). The mustard has a serious kick, and the lemonade is good. Try the cheesecake. Read more

    Love 3x the Lamb Triple Dip! It is not overkill to 3x dip. Grab your favorite side. Mine's mac salad and a lemonade. Load up with the spicy mustard and rest assured you've eaten the best FD in LA.

    Trick is let the sandwiche sit for a while so that the dip spread out through the bread. Then it'd be juicy & tastu

    Get the lamb, double-dipped, with bleu cheese; it's a slightly more expensive combo of sandwich options but it's oh so worth it. Don't forget the nuclear mustard, either.
