The location is a little outside of all the action in Pasadena, but at the same time is one of the easiest places to get to. The Metro Gold Line drops you off right at its' doors (Del Mar Station). It's a great stop on the way into downtown LA, or just a great place to go to eat. The food is good (love their short rib tacos), and on certain nights, I want to say Mondays and Tuesdays, they have "Neighborhood Nights" where it's buy one entree, get the second one for $5.

The bar area is on the south side of the location, and it's always got a nice feel to it.

This is a really buzzy place offering funky food in cool surroundings. The food is described as classic American and it was really good. Most enjoyable.

I eat here once a week, sometimes twice. Short rib tacos, wonderful, Chopped Ceasar Salad great, homemade muffins, yummy. If you go on a Sunday for the brunch you have got to try the lemon ricotta pancakes, if your appettite is large throw in the short rib hash or split them both with a friend. They also make house deviled eggs that seem to be a house staple for most, I've yet to try them. If the place is packed try the sister restuarant next door "The Luggage Room". It's got great pizza and a chopped salad you'll love. The prices are just right.

Love this place only had the short rib tacos but they were delicious. The luggage room next door serves pizza and salads and that is outside and very good also.

I went upon the recommendation of my husband who met a few friends for lunch several months back. My girlfriend and I had never been, but we will definitely go again! I read a tripadvisor review from a few days earlier and ordered the shark tacos due to the strong recommendation. My friend had the huge green salad with quinoa and a big bowl of beans. Everything was divine!
