Classic diner; meat loaf sandwiches and roast turkey

This is a pretty classic diner with a full bar. The roast turkey is their specialty -- carved from the bird, your choice of white, dark, or mixed. With dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and a little bowl of salad, plus bread and butter. Like from the 50's. Staff is attentive, service is pretty... read more

I visited the Tallyrand restaurant shortly after they opened on Thursday, April 2nd 2015. Breakfast before taking the 1st Warner Brothers tour of the morning. The Tallyrand was not terribly busy right at opening, but was hopping about the time that I left. I had a wonderful visit. I sat at the front counter for my meal. I was taken... More

Tallyrand is famous for having the best turkey dinner, turkey sandwiches and a variety of great meals for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This is where Burbankians regularly flock for a great meal. The late Huel Howser was a regular customer, and his favorites are highlighted on the menu. An added bonus are the yummy baked goods (delicious muffins) offered as... More

Tallyrand owners have done a great job keeping the restaurant quaint and comfortable without sacrificing cleanliness and general upkeep. Great care has gone into making sure the surroundings and good are great quality without losing the "homegrown" feeling that I'm sure the locals have grown to love about the place. The good won't win any awards, but is good enough... More

Always busy, food is good for a coffee shop and the nice thing is, it's old school and has a full bar. Huell Howser did a review her and loved their hot turkey plate.

Okay, every year my husband and I, if we were not eating our thanksgiving meal with friends, we would take the opportunity to go and try the culinary turkey experience from restaurants all over town. Tallyrand of Burbank was this year's choice, a recommendation to us from a foodie friend back in July 2014. I have been wanting to go... More
