    Well, The Pastrami Dip, of course! Think, 10 min drive through from 10-10 every day. It's the OC's Dirty Water Dog. A cultural phenomenon that the newby has to try!

    The Pastrami sandwich is always awesome, but the chicken salad and avocado sandwiches are worth however far you have to drive also.

    A lot of hype for big servings of mediocre sandwiches. Not impressed at all when you get packets of generic 1000 island sauce for your "famous" pastrami dip.
