We stopped in here for a quick bite to eat on a tour, they were very busy which is a good sign, although the only alternative for us to eat was a takeout which we were allowed to eat outside at a spare table; how does that work. The food was a hit and a miss, my wife's slider was... More

Saw this on Food Network ages ago and have been dying to try it ever since - finally got the chance to do so and it definitely didn't disappoint. Wonderful flavours, juicy beef, delicious fries. I even came back a second time!

Stopped in for a quick bite and it was good. A little pricey for every day but a nice treat now and then. Staff was friendly and food was quick and fresh. Good if you need gluten free. Onion rings got 2 thumbs up from my husband. Nice place inside as well.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
