  1. Now that's a deal! Thanks for the heads up!

    1. So the lines will be 100 times longer than usual in honor of the anniversary. Thanks for the heads up, but I'll pass.

      I was an English major, but isn't 2008-1918 =90 years?

      1. re: Professor Salt

        Sorry, Professor. I was a math major, but should've taken more English classes.

        The original post should read that 1918 was the year that the French dip was (supposedly) created.

        Philippe's was indeed established in 1908 ...

        1. 1 Sandwich per customer/ Forgetaaboutiiiiittttttt!!!!

          1. It seriously might take you over three hours on line for the 10 cent privilege and also if I'm not mistaken it will only be offered during the limited hours of 4pm to 6pm. So I guess you can bring plenty of reading material or schelp your laptop and a chair and work from there.

          2. Even at $.10, its not worth the the long line for a crappy sandwich.
