Jesus I'd kill for some Hat pastrami right about now...and Orange Bang? damn. Back earlier when I was talking about Papa Christo's I didn't mean to refer to it as fastfood, rather, I was mentioning Greek food that was far superior to Daphne's. My idea of fastfood is anything in a hut/shack/stand w/ or w/o drive-thru & no tipping since you're ordering from a counter. And if it serves booze, bonus points. And if they serve you booze through the drive-thru, I'd like the name and which city it's located in so I can move there now. I never understood the "need" to top @ Philippe's. Yes, they make the sandwiches but I don't tip the cooks for making my eggs or french toast. Just seems like a "tradition" that became an odd staple. Why did you have to bring up the Hat?
