Johnnie’s Pastrami started back in 1952; and Bob and Sue Bass have perpetuated Johnnie’s into a Southern California icon over the last two thirds of a century. It has been recognized by the Culver City Historical Society and has become a true Los Angeles landmark. Consistency and quality have been the secret ingredients and Vienna Beef, with its pastrami, corned beef and hotdogs is proud to have been an integral part of that recipe since their inception.
Johnnie’s serves up fast, fresh 50’s diner fare including the music. Everything from its tried and true Vienna Beef pastrami and corned beef sandwiches to the chili dogs, charbroiled burgers, golden brown chicken, fish and shrimp baskets are the specialties people keep coming back for. Every meal begins with their complimentary bowl of their kosher style pickles made with special herbs and spices. Since their inception, not much has changed from the original neon sign and juke boxes to the patio umbrellas and wood laminate countertops.
Countless celebrities and regulars have feasted on those famous pastrami dip sandwiches including: Adam Sandler, Jimmy Fallon, Mark Wahlberg, Magic Johnson to name a few. The accolades and awards are numerous. Now it is Vienna’s turn to acknowledge and thank Sue Bass, Jueve Solorio, the entire staff and family and to welcome Johnnie’s Pastrami into the Vienna Beef Hall of Fame. From all of the folks at Vienna, we say congratulations and best wishes for much continued success.
