    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.

    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. :(

    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.

    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!

    Owned by food genius Roy Choi and housed in an old IHOP, A-Frame is worth visiting for the Furikake Popcorn alone. There for dinner? Get the O.G. Ribs. Read more

    $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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
