Boasting “World Famous Pastrami” and a Southern California pedigree that stretches back to 1951, the Hat’s first out-of-state expansion is back on track for a 2020 debut in Spring Valley.

First revealed back in May, pastrami dip sandwiches, chili fries, and hot dogs are moving into a 4,122-square-foot restaurant upgraded with an outdoor patio and drive-thru at 6239 S. Rainbow Blvd., close to the intersection with Sobb Avenue.

New paperwork estimates a construction budget of $750,000 to create the built-from-scratch space, located across Rainbow from Scooter’s Pub and a short distance from Archi’s Thai Bistro.

The famed attraction at its 11 West Coast restaurants, including the legendary 68-year-old, walk-up Alhambra location, is thinly sliced pastrami served on a French roll with mustard and pickle and dipped in the house recipe au jus.

Also available, roast beef dips, burgers, cold sandwiches, fries with gravy, onion rings, and chili fries served with tomato and pickle.

Future opening hours, or an estimated debut date have not been announced.
