My experience with 38 Degrees is confined to lunch and take out. Being a total cheeseburger freak I have frequently ordered the sliders. I find these minis lacking in flavor. They tend to be a bit overcooked and are served with a thin veneer of 1000 Island and a drizzle of onion. My remedy - order them to go, add... More

Stopped in on a Friday night after a movie. The good news, easy walking distance from the theater. Bad news, loud, really loud. Can't hear the person across the table from you loud. As for the food, the burgers are excellent. Have the Backyard Burger tonight. Huge. Fresh bun, juicy burger. Cooked just as I ordered. The beer selection is... More

One of my favorite bar. Bartenders are super cool and they know their craft! Lots of seating and TV for sports fans. The music isn't overly loud and they play good tracks. Love the thirty eight burger!!

so I was at their door at 4pm opening on a Monday and I was not the first customer, a party of three ahead of me. I ordered and enjoyed their Broiled Atlantic Salmon with long Chinese beans. Presentation perfect and it was delicious. Their art on walls is interesting mix of paintings from abstract to classical. Happy hour runs... More

This was a great find. The short ribs were well seasoned and super tasty. The wings and fries with duck gravy were incredible. Service was ok, not exceptional. Drinks were a bit overpriced. Just for the food I would highly recommend.

Service was very good. Beer selection very good. For appetizers we had the crispy tofu tacos which had a delicious sauce and vegan creme fraiche was delicious. Beet salad with cashew butter was also very yummy. We probably enjoyed the appetizers more than our entrees. We shared the Yellowtail Po' Boy and the Seared Yellowtail noodle dish. I don't think...

Good location, knowledgeable service and great food. I have allergies to shellfish - had to know if the oil used for shrimp was also used for potatoes and other munches. They checked - I ordered salad. That's how it should be. Burger was delicious. Beer - a little light but tasty on a hot day.

I went here following a meeting I had at Cal State Los Angeles. It's only about ten minutes away, and hoped that it would be a place where a group of us could go and carry on our discussions. I actually stopped by the previous evening to check this out, and thought that the music was just a little loud,... More

I love this place and I'm not much of a sports fan. But if you are and want a place where you can get 38 different kinds of beer (hence the name) and great food, this is the place for you!

I have been there to drink some beers with my girlfriend. They have a few good brands and a good food but prices are not the cheapest.
