“Don't expect anything spectacular!”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

This place it's nothing special,it's just a regular place that's open until late,where you can get a really huge portion for the normal price.The portions are lot bigger then other restaurants,but if you want eat healthy food,it's not the right place.I was also very cold inside and couldn't get the table closer to the heating.The glasses for the wine are inappropriate.I would say,nothing fancy,but good if you are really hungry and want an ok food.

“A Must Place to Eat”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Have stopped here before and always a great meal. Right down the block from Ralph's Supermarket and worth the time. Prices are right, in the middle of Hollywood, and the portions are huge. Worth tracking down, as it is on the main drag, and the food and service is excellent!

“Great Food!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

After 5 months in this city,I was starting to think that there were no good restaurants in L.A. This restaurant isnt fancy,but the staff is effecient and friendly and the food was so good I went back the next two nights to order the same exact thing. I had the Averys salad with carmelized pears that were to die for. Yum. I switched the dressing for balsalmic and it tasted fresh and homemade. I also added a piece of grilled salmon and it was marinated and grilled perfectly. An explosian of flavor in my mouth. Their menu is extensive and I cant wait to try the rest of it!
