Cash Only. Great small place for a good hot pastrami sandwich. Love the atmosphere. Small Diner tables w/ jukebox, Individual Coin Operated selection at each of the tables inside. Great late night spot. Been coming here for years.

nice place for a good Pastrami and beer, love the outdoor setting, you see a lot of regulars there so it tells you just how good the food is.

Delicious sandwiches in a classic lunch counter environment. The waitress gave me great instructions on how to take the bus to Venice Beach from there.

I tried the famous pastrami sandwich and a side of fries. All I can say is wow! Good old fashion thin shaved pastrami and fresh made bread super with crunchy crinkle fries. The little tabletop juke box with oldies is great. They were super fast and super friendly. I would recommend this to anyone who loves little pastrami sandwich

I think this place used to be connected to another location on Crenshaw and Adams that made the best pastramis but the area got too rough and I think they closed up, The Johnys in Culver City makes various types of Jewish deli sandwiches and compare to Langers and New York Deli with Cantors lagging behind. Prices are a little... More

If your looking for that eclectic 50's/60s scenery and look this is the place to be. The food is to die for. It is packed full of the most delicate cuts dipped in a mouth watering dip. I would recommend this to anyone looking good for an honest feed with a splash of what it was like in the good... More

The pastrami sandwich I ordered was very good and very big, could easily feed two people with average appetites. I ordered French fries which were plentiful and very good as well, I had cole slaw which was good and flavorful. The restaurant was full of patrons, both inside and on the patio. My order was taken quickly and prepared for... More

this is not a Langer's or Brent's Kosher style Pastrami which I love; this is "American"s style pastrami which is also great but different piled mile high and delicious. Ask for the special hot mustard they keep under the counter. Not for someone watching their Sodium intake!
