I returned to this restaurant just for their amazing nachos that are made with won ton chips, melted cheese, tomatoes, guacamole and sour cream. Drove 300 miles to get them!

The ambience was great, and the food was surprisingly cool. Had some of the best fish tacos I ever had north of Mexico. However, we waited close to 15 min for our server to find time to stop by our table to greet us and get our order. We were literally getting up to leave when he finally stopped by,... More

Right next to Grauman's Egyptian Theatre is The Pig "n" Whistle, an eatery well worth the stop. This is an historic eatery on Hollywood Blvd which opened in 1920's as the concession area of Grauman's Egyptian Theatre. Later it morphed into a soda shop where it is said that Shirley Temple frequented. The restaurant was remodeled in 1999 into the... More

One of the oldest restaurants in Hollywood - used to be the concession area for the historic 1922 Graumann's Egyptian Theatre (to which it is adjacent). Stopped by for a delicious lunch on a Sunday. The hostess and waitress were both welcoming and friendly. The food was reasonably priced, bountiful and delicious. And the menu was varied. It's a great... More

In 1951, I ate at the Pig N Whistle on 5'th street in downtown Los Angeles. I was 16 years old and worked for Pacific Telephone on 4th and Olive. Oh yeah, I have eaten at several of their other restaurants in other parts of Los Angeles and Hollywoood but there was nothing like the original. What a place. My... More

Came here with a large group of convention attendees for an evening of casual dining and drinks. We selected P&W partly for the suitability of their menu (available online at their website) and partly for the ambiance (the building history is also online, but you really need to see the ceiling in the flesh to appreciate it). The restaurant is... More

Had the Alfredo with blackened chicken (the hostess said it was a hit and she was right!) family had the nachos and panini which were awesome too! The place was busy with all of the staff working really hard and giving great information to us tourists who didn't want to miss any of the attractions! Great place! Would go back... More

We popped in for a quick snack before the Red Line Hollywood Tour next door. Don't miss the fantastic California Nachos made from fried wanton rather than traditional tostito chips. The guacamole and other toppings were fantastically fresh. Service was quick and efficient. And, I don't know the history of the building, but looks like an old chapel. Make sure... More

We visited a couple or times and on both occasions sat in a side booth. The place was bustling and the service was swift & efficient without feeling rushed. Food was good & plentiful. Welcoming relaxed atmosphere, no pretentious with nothing flash.
