“Kogi taco fusion! - the BEST!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Love this little pub on the corner which can get packed on the weekends. Standing room only sometimes but well worth it. We came here with friends from Sydney, ordered the taco combos, calamari tacos, sliders, MUST try korean spiced fries, kimchee quesidillas. Our order came in less than 10 mins, more like 5 and everything was fresh and very tasty. Great prices and we were very satisfied. Lots of food and I would recommend ordering less, as you can always order more and food does come quickly

Bartenders were very friendly and attentive, if I lived closer, this would be a regular place to come. Someone next to us ordered the Tofu salad, which looked amazing........will have to try next time.

If you are in the area - must make a visit if you're a foodie. About 10 mins from LAX airport, so make it one of the last meals before you leave. Only open after 5:30, but there were 3 or 4 cars in the car park waiting for it to open when we arrived. We wanted to get in and out quickly as a friend had a flight out that night.

“Cute little place with great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

This little place is a great neighborhood Spot. It is tiny so seats at the bar fill up fast. There are a handful of seats against one wall. They pushed several love seats together in a roll with small square tables in front of them and individual short stools on the other side. The other wall does have a shelf so you can stand and place your drink or food there. The bar is extremely dark so the menu shard to read without the flashlight app on your phone. We had tacos (short rib taco is a must!), burger, a bowl and sliders. They were all really amazing. The drinks at the bar are amazing as well. My biggest complaint is that you had to go to the bar to order. It is always so awkward to shout your order over someone sitting at the bar...and then lifting your drink around them. At least they brought food to your table. pass not the brownie...trust me for $4 you can get a box mix at home and be MUCH happier. The food and drinks are great, I would definitely go again!

“Just like the KOGI truck but with alcohol!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This place is for people like me who are too lazy to wait in line for the KOGI truck. But you get to drink too! And they have a really great beer/drink selection. The food is just as good here vs. the truck and they also added dishes from Chego. What sucks is the place is usually crowded and its hard to find seating space - but service is quick and you'll find a spot in no time.

“Like the world's nicest hole in the wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Went in for a drink and a date. What looks to be the upscale version of a dive bar has a secret power: great happy hour apps. So if you want to make your happy hour dollar go further, this is the place to do it.

“Brick and Mortar Kogi Truck + Beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This spot is in a strange location with no other restaurants near by. The interior is nice with lounge area + bar. Beers are good but food is quite salty (good thing there's good bear to wash it down). Think taco truck food + good beef. Cool place to stop by to chill and have snacks and beer.
