Philippe The Original, Los Angeles Reviews - Write a Review
We went here after seeing this place on the food network, and wanted to try out the original French Dip sandwich. We got the regular beef and the pork. They were both good, but I thought the beef tasted better. We also grabbed a place of olives, pickles and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the kids. It was fun, you sit at some picnic tables to eat, and it was pretty busy. Overall the price was reasonable and less than $4.00 for each of the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
This place is great! I needed to stop somewhere to get a sandwich to take on my 10 p.m. train ride with me. This place was a great place for that! They have dip sandwiches of turkey, beef, lamb or pastrami. I have the pastrami sandwich it was wonderful! They also have many side dishes and salads. I would highly recommend this place for a sandwich even if you're not in the area to take a train! It is open till 10 p.m. and also has very comfortable seating and a unique train Motif with lots of model trains.
One of the great LA treasures. Prices are still incredibly affordable and the quality of the food is excellent. All of the dips are worth trying but I tend to sick with Beef dip. The salads are all worth trying but I'm partial to the potato salad. Be sure to find s booth to eat in rather than one of the open tables!
Philippe french dip sandwiches are in LA staple and continue to draw me in, no matter what the hour is. I almost have an emotional experience with the place; anytime that I returned from a night of drinking, my pals and I would always grab a bite to eat from the establishment. Although their breakfast is not on par with other Great LA eateries such as The Pantry, Philippe holds up with its own unique experience. Nothing tops a lunch like a French dip sandwich and coleslaw. Their drinks are refreshing, cheap, and in perfect portions. The staff is always friendly, and moves quickly. I could say that one thing that is required upon every visit to the restaurant is their house mustard sauce that that sits upon every table. Philippe is a must-try.
Yes indeed it's the original place for the French dip sandwich. For those that haven't, stop by when you hit Union station, or swing through Chinatown as it's really close. Go ahead and spoil yourself and grab one with double meat. You absolutely won't regret it. The place is like a weird little time capsule, saw dust on the floors, long wooden benches, pickled eggs and everything! Also, keep your eyes peeled when you visit, you'll see plenty of Hollywood figures pop in and out.
