I ate at Jan's twice in as many days, once for breakfast, and once for dinner. The food was quite good, the service adequate to good, and the prices very reasonable. I would say it was comparable to a Denny's or Shari's.

Went to Jan's tonight as it was so close to our hotel and couldn't be bothered going further. Our server possibly didn't want to be there, as she was short with us and there was no follow up on our meals. The meals weren't too bad, pretty good quality for the price as they were huge, but it wasn't anything to write home about!

Quite a good choice on the menu but the service was not great. I felt like i was in New York. It felt like the waitress was either annoyed by us being there or was just having a bad day. Food was okay but nothing special. 2 main courses and 2 beers came to 40 dollars so not that cheap either.

This Place is Great. Voted the Best in Los Angeles, and on the Money.
Great Service, Food Was Excellent, Amazing and Dirt Cheap.
Had Excellent Filet Minon,Mashed Potatoes With Gravy, Mixed Vegs, Salad and Chocolate Cake For Desert. It was the Special and I was Amazed at the Bill, $11.50.
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent.
No Frills, No BS, Great Find.
Tops in My Book.

It's increasingly-hard to find a good BREAKFAST place in the city that opens at 6AM without going to a chain (IHOP, Dennys, etc.), so JAN'S was a god-send!!

Family-type restaurant, with a very Greek flavor inside that does offer Greek-accented dishes for all meals .. ..

Strangely, I've found their HUEVOS RANCHEROS to be excellent - Don't know who the cook is, but he sure isn't Greek .. .. Choose from their EGGS BENEDICT, or monster egg dishes, and you won't leave hungry .. ..

Not the place if you are counting your pennys, but if you want a great meal to kick off a greater day, this is the place .. ..

And, being just down the street from the CBS Studios, you get your fair share of industry types and 'I-know-who-that-is' .. ..

THANK YOU JAN'S!!
