Adam Richman highlighted Philippe's on the Los Angeles episode of Man v. Food. Ever since I first watched that episode, I've wanted to try this spot out. Luckily for me and my cousin, when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon, there was virtually no line. Busy, but no line.
We shared a couple of French dips, double-dipping the beef and lamb sandwiches. We also got a side of potato salad. Upon closer inspection, the beef was sliced thinner than the lamb.

Lamb French Dip was a bit saltier than the beef, but still good. Again, happy panda. Potato salad was also pretty good.

There's a parking lot for Philippe's customers, but of course, the panda totally ignored that and parked in a lot where I had to pay $4. Oops.
Next time, I'll have to get beer and dessert here. And perhaps try the other French Dip options. 7.75/10
