    One of the best pastrami sandwiches in SoCal. very thin-sliced and piled onto a french roll, not New York style, but great tasting.

    The "dip" on the pastrami dip makes the bread a bit soggy. If getting this to go, order no dip and ask for the dip on the side.

    The pastrami sandwich roll was soggy which takes a lot of enjoyment out of the sandwich eating.

    Got the chili cheese fries to go, they placed layers of paper on top so all the cheese stuck to it 😑

    Great stop when you need a fast food pastrami sandwich. French dips are good too. Gravy fries are good - portions are generous. This place helps keep cardiologist busy. 😀

    The pastrami dip is good but as a pastrami lover...Gandolfos wins this OC battle of "The Best Pastrami".

    Ask for your fries to be dipped in extra LDL (the healthy cholesterol) for a healthy alternative.

    If you really want an instant coronary try the Chili Cheese Fries w/ Pastrami. Pretty much an entire sandwich worth of pastrami on top of an already gigantic serving of chili fries.

    As a pastrami connoisseur I can say with confidence this well established eatery has the best pastrami in Orange County. Make sure you order the "dip" which is chalk filled of the fattiest pastrami.
