Best food in LA for the value. I don't eat all day if I know I'm going to Phillipe's for dinner. Service can be slow, but it's definitely worth the wait. One place you CAN'T miss if you're in LA.

What can you say about a place that has been around as long as this place.... They do everything well and the potato salad is to die for, (try mixing a little bit of the hot mustard with it). From my kids as they were growing up to my grandparents, everyone has loved this place, you know what you're going to get everytime.... GREAT FOOD!!!

Double Dip your French dip. If you like french dip, pickles, macaroni salad, and non-alcoholic drinks-- you've got to go to this place.

These are by far the best sandwiches around! I got my beef dip with bleu cheese and coleslaw. This was probably the best coleslaw I have ever tasted. If you live in the valley and don't feel like driving - take the Metro. Get on at Universal and off at the station in Daowntown. It is a very short walk from there!

We had the French Dip sandwich during lunch hour. It was over priced, and not all that great to be raving about. It's better than Arby's, but not by much.

The French Dip is the BEST at Philippe's and you can tell, it is always packed with out-of-towners and people who make a special trip downtown just to eat there. I love Philippe's!

I love to go to Philippe's when I am in the area. It brings back fond childhood memories, especially at a time when so many of the places from my childhood have succumed to the the devlopers' ideas of "progress"

I seen this place on an episode of Huell Howsers KCET show! After watching it on T.V i was intrigued. Then my father treated me to a sandwich there and I couldn't understand what all the hype was about?! The sandwich is so dry you'll need to disect a camel to quench your thirst! The dipping sauce tastes like the nation of nausea! And the price is ridiculous for the amount of sandwich your getting. Theres history but who cares?! How does the history affect your life?! It doesn't in anyway! So just bulldoze the place down and build an IN-N-OUT! But go ahead and see for yourself. Everybody should try atleast once to make there own judgements.

We love Philippe's....the french dips are wonderful, not to mention the potato salad! It's just nice and kind of takes you back in time. It makes me feel like I'm not in LA.

Showed up for an early dinner before a Dodger game on a thursday. Found that there was enough staffing to keep the lines to 2-3 people maximum. Definitely recommend double dipped.

We have been going to Philippe's for over 20 years. Yes the place looks pretty much the same, and I don't think the price of coffe has changed either. Most importantly, the French Dip tastes the same today as it did when I was a kid - the only difference is I have developed a taste for that MUSTARD. We pile it on and eat those great sandwiches until the mustard makes us cry. Great LA tradition - it's good to see that some things don't change.

I have heard about Phillipes for a long time so I finally tried it. It was OK. I think the atmosphere and history behind the establishment has fooled people into believing the food is better than it is. the food was average and I probably would not go back. If you have not been there I do recommend you go at least once.

I don't get to Philippe's enough. Fantastic dipped sandwiches and painfully delicious mustard. Sooo good. Expect long lines at lunch during the week, and whenever the Dodgers are playing at Chavez Ravine.

Whenever a friend or relative comes to LA, I try to take them to Philippe's. With a deliscious dip sandwich, mustard and coleslaw on the side and fine cup-o-joe, it's a great way to get someone into the history of Old Los Angeles, before you start on any of the fantastic adventures Downtown. Don't forget to buy a t-shirt

Great place for a delicious sandwich if you are in the downtown Los Angeles area. Not too pricey, but why have fast food when you can have a Phillipes style dipped sandwich. The location is excellent down the street from Union Station. I most certainly would recommend it to anyone who loves sandwiches.

The beef sandwich is just fine, but try the lamb, it's verry nice indeed. The spicy mustard really sets it off. Then get yourself a glass of homemade lemonade and a cup of tapioca and a 9 cent cup of Yuban for desert. Heaven, baby!

In the legendary battle of the French dips, Philippe gets my vote. I am partial to the beef sandwich, double-dipped (natch) and top it with a dollop of the rip-snorting house mustard. Don't let the sawdust-covered floor fool you, Philippe offers some great wines by the glass.
