We ate here after visiting Guitar Center across the street and it was just average. The chips were fresh and the salsa was spicy, so I was hopeful, but our food was bland. Also, service was mediocre.

This is the place to be! It seems everyone eats here. Was there on a Sat night and there was a 30 min wait! But worth the wait. Don’t miss this local hang out! Lots of speciality dishes that you wont find other places.

While visiting family, went here for dinner. Seating is dated, atmosphere was noisy and difficult to converse. Food was okay, service great. Not sure I would go again.

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
