Phillippe the Original Restaurant, Los Angeles: 15 reviews and 19 photos
The restaurant is located one block from Olvera street. It is said to be where the French Dip Sandwich was invented. There is another restaurant Coles that says they invented it first, so who really knows.
Phillippe 's has been around for over 80 years and is a very popular place to go to. It is so popular infact that if you go during the week day, lunch hour, it will be a long wait. This place is also very popular because the food is very inexpensive. Alittle cheaper than the Pantry. Coffee is .09 cents, lemonade .60 cents, and ice tea .50 cents.
The food here is simple but delicious. The bread is fresh and the sandwiches are made right in front of you. Also try the chili and the tapioca pudding. The place is decorated with old train, dodger and city memorabilia. They are opened here at 6am for breakfast and close about 10:30 pm.
