Had the Bleu cow burger. Not usually a fan of bleu cheese but the waitress recommended that and the ribs. She was right, the hamburger was great. Loved their French fries. They were the size of steak fries but were nice and crisp. It cost around $15 + tax. A bit expensive for a hamburger, but good price for dinner... More

Ended up here while in LA for a conference with some co-worker friends and loved everything about Blue Cow. Amazing atmosphere inside and out (which was so comfortable I thought about sitting there until I was hungry again), great menu with fresh ingredients and taste combinations, big (and creative) drink menu, and the service couldn't have been any better. Our... More

Having ate here many times, it's a must go place for hanging out after work. The Royal with Cheese is a burger that is hard to beat! Great staff and restaurant. Love this place. Slightly hard to find. In the lower courtyard across from the The Court shopping area.

We were staying nearby so decided to try this place. It was ok - our server was friendly and seemed to know his stuff. I had the daily special of turkey meatballs which were very tasty but there was only 5, on a big pile of VERY salty french fries. Apparently the cobb salad and mini sliders were good. At... More

This restaurant has a disclaimer on their menu that let's you know of the dangers of eating from their kitchen. I give them credit for owning up to their inability to have a safe kitchen. The menu looked great for lunch, but we couldn't try it.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
