    Tired of burgers and hot dogs? Try a different kind of American cuisine. Corn kettle as an appetizer and a fish taco as a main course. For dessert try the chu-don't-know churros or the funnel cake.

    Housed in a renovated IHOP, start with the Furikake Kettle Corn and end with the pound cake cinnamon churros. Great music inside but sit outside for a better chance of hearing what your company says.

    Poke sampler is twice the size of just one for an extra $3. Tuna & avocado and shrimp, scallions and herbs. Comes with rice. Hush puppies of taro with cheese dill and sweet chilli

    The baja fish taco is 'playful' with the pickled jalapeño, crème fraîche, and Cotija cheese. There's great spice from the salsa roja, and the fish is just great. Read more

    The swordfish tacos are fantastic, as are their octopus, chicken and apparently the ribs. The topper, though, was the cinnamon churro dessert. I was forced to try them and was so glad I did. AMAZING.

    A lively ski-chalet-style restaurant housed in a former IHOP, serving up inventive dishes such as beer-marinated crispy chicken with kimchi and two salsas.

    This has just become my new favorite place in LA. They took over an old iHop and gutted it. Amazing shared plates like ribs and shrimp. Delicious drinks. Reasonable… (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The hambagu steak meat is a nice alternative to the traditional hamburger patty on loco mocos. A lot softer, similar to the texture of a salisbury steak but much more flavorful.

    $15 for all you can eat pancakes + $16 for bottomless brunch cocktails. If you can resist the AYCE allure, either the Loco Moco or Surfer's Sandwich (+ fried egg) is a worthy alternative.

    Potatoe Pancakes: amazing! "Bloody Maria":GREAT! Spam sandwich:good. The plate lunch with the stew and "fresh grass-fed organic beef": HUGE disappointment! Hamburger tasted like a McDonald's patty. :(

    You can't go wrong ordering a double cheesburger. Also if you're with some friends and are willing to indulge - you should absolutely get the "Chu-don't-know-mang" churros. Mindblowingly good.

    Best loco moco I've ever had, hands down. The entire menu is tremendous. Have a drink and enjoy the communal seating. Hawaiian vibes with an urban Korean twist.

    One of the best new restaurants in LA. Loved the comunal seating and portions. Beer canned chicken and ribs are a must. Plus check out their cocktail menu, so many options! A young hot spot!

    Place is hard to spot so look for a converted IHOP. They also don't take reservations so get there early to avoid a ridiculous wait. A must for dessert... the "Chu-Don't-Know-Mang" churros!

    Love this place. chef attended my alma mater The French Culinary Institute. Food is great. Scandinavian barnhouse interiors. They offer you bread and butter while waiting. Bread is insanely good.

    Awesome food, very cool staff, a bit loud inside, very chill outside seating, great and strong drinks, very good chef... Good for small groups (max 7-8)

    Small dinner plates with a picnic feel from chef Roy Choi, with lots of cocktails and a perfect Beer Can Chicken.

    Nice restaurant. I was in the mood for a rib eye and was attracted by the price. A-Frame proved you get what you pay for. Get the steak at Waterloo & City next door. Better quality meat.

    Visiting from NYC and this was one of the best meals I've had in awhile! Good vegetarian options. Island farmer's market salad and churros were amazing!!!

    The cracklin beer can chicken and baby back ribs are famous but the Furikake pop corn is a must. Crazy buttery!

    New hawaiian theme is 👌, but warning, gets pricey quick! Homemade Spam musubi is nothing compared to the real thing in Hawaii; though.

    Hooked. The wings and the unlimited pancakes are enough to garner a cult following. Sit outside with good with hood friends and enjoy good food.

    Split a whole order of the Beer Can chicken with a friend and sit by the bar to feel less like you're in a cafeteria. Great food by Chef Choi!

    If its date night, beware of communal seating. Also watch out for the throwing popcorn on the counter... oh yea i forgot its picnic style. Good branding and marketing tho

    The hoisin chili glaze on the O.G. Ribs is awesome! Literally had me licking the bones after the meat was gone.

    Communal Tables. Order everything and anything, but don't forget to have "Chu-Don't-Know-Mang" at the end of your meal! I daydream about it all the time.

    Amazing and beautiful re-use of an IHOP. Great beer selection (Weihenstephaner! Curieux!) but a little disappointed they serve all the beers in pilsner glasses.

    Try the Westside Plate Lunch - Hearty stew over rice, fried eggs, hamburger patty and hot sauce. It's a hipster loco moco. Pretty good.

    Bottomless pancakes and mimosas. Because bottomless pancakes and mimosas. Try the Lilikoi Butter or POG pancakes, they're great!

    Learned the hardest that the Ribeye is just not enough food for the price. Devastated an otherwise great first impression from the Clam chowder the night before. Will take my time going back. Shame.

    Bottomless Bloodymarys are phenomenal. No satisfying vegetarian options, especially for brunch, but great pancake and chicken deal.

    The sauces are so good that it almost doesn't matter what you order. Beer can chicken was cooked well. Skip the squash. Pork belly ssam was okay but ended up just eating it in pieces.

    Try the Chu-Don't-Know-Mang - Pound cake cinnamon Churros with malted chocolate milk and vanilla ice cream. Excellent.

    Don't leave without trying the baked potato (even the skin is good), BBQ lamp chops, and clam chowder (which has a Thai Tom Yum character to it).

    Try the furkikake popcorn, pork belly wrap, musubi plate, and the coconut rye stout. Beer chicken was alright.

    If I knew how to make the skin of chicken as crispy as the Cracklin Beer Can Chicken I would be 6,285 pounds.

    communal style dining is fun. order the ribs, steak torta, dyn-o-mite potato and get messy! apple pie & cheddar ice cream is good but skip the thick-ass ice cream sammie. it's hard as concrete.
