Johnnie’s Pastrami

4017 Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles, CA, 90230

(310) 397-6654

Served on a shiny bun, the hot pastrami sandwich, overflowing with peppery meat, makes grease look good. The chili cheese fries and throwback taco (that hard shell and yellow cheese again) are simple and satisfying. So is the classic lunch counter ambience.
