This iconic LA eatery is still doing it like they did decades ago. I first recall going there in the late 50's for a beef dip sandwich with the family. They offer a choice of breads including french roll, sourdough, and rye among others. Meat choices include beef, pork, lamb and turkey. Or order my favorite the NY style Pastrami.You can order your sandwich single dip, double dip or wet.

What you say about the Original Pantry. You will never leave that place hungry. Hardy breakfast 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Short ribs are tender and tasty. The meat loaf mashed potatoes the definition of comfort food. The spaghetti and meatballs are better than some Italian restaurants. Make sure you have room for dessert even if you have to share it.
