    Great burger and mean fries but house rules quite anal. They can't change ingredients or add them and they don't entertain sauce requests even if only on the size

    One of the best beer lists in LA to go with a great burger.

    The Office Burger - definitely a must-try. The patty was perfectly cooked and the cheese and caramelized onions balanced themselves well! They have excellent fries, thinly cut and not too greasy.

    Good duck salad! Sweet potato fries were good but not amazing. Native foods cafe does it better with chipotle sauce! FCFS seating, little service, order at the bar.

    Hamburger ritenuto tra i migliori della città (probabilmente terzo posto) con blue cheese e soncino a volontà. Ambiente semi-informale e modaiolo.
