Billed as "the originator of the French dip", this 1908-vintage Chinatown "landmark" still turns out "must-try" sandwiches hailed as "national treasures" (hint: "ask for it double dipped"); it's an "unorganized" "mess hall" with "communal tables, sawdust on the floor" and "long lines", but the staffers "work fast" and the "low prices" "take you back in time."
