The Tallyrand is a Burbank landmark. Good, wholesome cooking like grandma made served by long-time waitresses and waiters who remember your drink order. The bus boys remember you to and are quick to bring whatever you desire. The Hot Turkey sandwich is a favorite as is the Sausage soup on Tuesday. They serve only creamy, cream of wheat on their...

Reminded me of the type of place my parents would have gone. Food was good and very tasty but the staff is what makes this place. They were friendly and attentive. My companion had traditional breakfast that was so huge it came on three plates. Very busy, slightly noisy but the service can't be beat. It's my #1 choice in... More

My previous Tallyrand review had some good things to say. But I will have to alter my opinion after a visit last week. I ordered the fish and chips. When they came they looked okay, but after a couple of bites I noticed all four pieces were the same shape. This told me maybe they were frozen, and maybe even... More

I went to this restaurant with my parents when I was a teenager, and 50 years later it's still a good choice. Their food is reasonably priced, not particularly creative, but very tasty and the service is good. That's a combination that's hard to beat!. I tried this place recently since I now live close, I was not disappointed, and... More

My first visit to Tallyrand was in the mid-80s. Then, I greatly enjoyed “The Popular Turkey Melt” – and still do almost 30 years later. It is prepared on buttered; toasted sourdough bread and served with fries (or a healthier alternative). Except for some of the staff and menu prices, not much has changed over the years. It is truly... More

It's mobbed & they don't take reservations, even for a party of 6, which we were. They handle the mob well, but on weekends you should expect a 30-45 minute wait. We could not get an inside table so we sat outside at 3 small tables pushed together. Food was pretty good, but in that kind of mob scene, some... More

Tallyrand is your typical neighborhood coffee shop, although it also has a somewhat murky yet vintage looking bar and dining area (down a few steps). I've eaten there numerous times since I was a child. The food quality varies substantially, which drives me nuts about any restaurant, but that problem seems to be particularly common amongst Los Angeles restaurants, probably... More

This restaurant has been serving their specialty of fresh-roasted turkey selections for over 50 years. It is a very friendly, family-run business and they have a dining room, coffee shop area and full service cocktail lounge. I love the full turkey dinner with mashed potatoes and dressing. It is like Thanksgiving every day!!
