Philippe’s is said to be where the French Dip sandwich was first seen back in 1908.
Some 110 years later, it’s still thriving, as you can tell from the crowd shot below. Yes, it’s that way often.
Philippe's is two blocks from Union Station, the big Los Angeles train station and Olvera Street, the oldest street in Los Angeles.
Philippe's has two parking lots, and it's free while you dine there.
Oh--and the French Dip is worth the wait. It's that great.
