    One of the better veggie burgers I've had in quite a while. A few choice beers. Will gladly go back.

    The veggie burger is one of the best I've had in LA. The jalapeño slaw is awesome and so are the sweet potato wedges. Top burger joint!

    The chicken sandwich - make it Greek - absolutely incredible! Haven't had such a good sandwich in a long time! Try the curry ketchup too, goes great with almost anything!

    Burger and fries were solid, however when I asked to sample a beer on tap they said they were too rare and expensive, this is after I had tossed down nearly $50 for lunch for two people.

    Horrible service. I ordered my meal to go so I could eat half and save the rest for later. They told me I was not allowed to eat at the restaurant. Stupid rule and poor management.

    Got The Burger (medium rare) with the sweet potato fries. The patty was just as delicious as Umami and the thick fries mad this meal an absolute delight.

    Although, I always go for the side of fries (either regular or sweet potato), the cucumber salad is a GREAT substitute. Healthy, too.

    Simple, American food done to perfection. Imagine if In N Out decided to create their own upscale $6 burger joint. This is a close match.

    The Burger, plus caramelized onions, is perfection. Multi-napkin juicy and delicious, without making you feel like your ate a brick. Get the jalapeno coke slaw too. Light and crunchy.

    Very accomodating people here, "great" customer service. Be sure to leave a tip in the red jar by the register. There's a counter to the right of the register for silverware, napkins, sauces & water.

    Guy's favorite was the pulled pork sandwich with pickled jalapenos, onions and a killer hot mustard sauce. The grass fed-lamb burger with yogurt dill sauce and sweet potato fries was "rock star" too. Read more

    They curate 12 taps with a keen eye for balance, as well as carry Scoops ice cream in vanilla that factors into a now notorious beef float that helped to launch the beer float trend in L.A.

    This is a wonderful and no nonsense burger joint with a remarkable and constantly rotating craft beer selection. Some of the best stouts in la can be found in this humble white structure...

    Turkey burger was great. Sweet potatoes fries were nice and thick but inconsistent (some burned, some still cold). Slaw was kinda dry.

    Skip ketchup on the burger and add spicy mustard. Sweet potato wedges are the best I've had. Caramel Oreo gelato? Bonkers. Also, try onion rings if available.

    Great burgers here but don't just mindlessly add fries as side. The amazingly delicious Golden State Red Potato Salad perfectly complements any of the fine burgers on the menu. Try it next time.
