this burger joint is WELL worth the visit if you are here in the West Coast (It is like the White Castle Burger of the East Coast!), especially for a cheap meal in an expensive city like Los Angeles.This joint tastes better than the other California Rival Carl's JR. The menu is shockingly simple, with only five items (hamburger, cheeseburger, double hamburger, fries, drinks/shakes) ranging from $1.99 to a couple dollars. Fresh ingredients is what this place prides itself on; no burger is ever frozen, and the potato is cut on-site when fries are ordered.
INN-N-OUT was founded in 1948 by a husband and wife enterprenuers named Harry and Esther Snyder. It was initially a Mom and Pop Burger Joint that became known in the Los Angeles Suburbs and became popular and subsequently headquartered in Irvine, California. In-N-Out Burger has since expanded to Arizona and Nevada and Utah
this branch is located at Burbank and is open from 10:30 am to 1:00 am everyday
Favorite Dish: burger meal with fries and a drink is for $5.99, Double-Double (with an additional Hamburger patty and cheese) for $7.99.
Sharky's is a local restaruant chain that started in 1992 in nearby Sherman Oaks and since then, it offered assorted mexican dishes cooked via a wood fired grill and they used the more expensive organic variety of fresh ingredients of fresh veggies and meats. this local mexican grill chain has 21 branches around the greater los angeles area at present and since I have never tasted their dishes, we had to try this out. they have a large menu of mexican grilled foods and fresh salads and seafood dishes. This is their branch at the Empire Center Strip Mall in Burbank, just off the Golden State Freeway (Interstate 5).
opens: 10:00 am to 10:00 pm everyday
Favorite Dish: they have burritos which are organic and cost $ 8.95, nachos with dips at $ 9.95 and wood fired mexican pizzas at $ 13.95 and a lot more.
Come one, come all here! Come for Breakfast, come for lunch! Bea Bea is a bustling, big portion fixin' local Burbank fave joint that will stay with guest for a long time after the final bite. From an extensive Google search, a friend saw that Bea X 2 was highly rated so we decided to go with some others for a first timer feast. As an all hours breakfasty/brunch kind of joint, choose from a variety of scrumptious waffles, pancakes, crepes, omelettes, sandwiches and salads. The main problems here is deciding which delight to order at crunch time with the waiter. This was an absolute task to do for me!
The Bea x 2 menu is not ordinary American. Green tea pancakes with white chocolate chips? Apple Pecan Waffle? Yes- these are available here! What's really extraordinary here is that there are several gluten-free options- I mean even for pancakes. Wow! And also, I delight in the cute-sy names of some menu selections, like "Still in my PJS" Waffle with strawberry & bananas and "Jacinda's First Blush" 3-egg dish with strawberry french toast, bacon and potatoes.Other Bea x 2 pluses: egg white replacements for the yolk and turkey bacon- not just the pig variety.
Bea Bea has a nice, semi-hipster vibe, with a retro 70s decor. Expect tight seating at tables and at the bar, all the more snug especially during busy hours. This joint is part of a strip mall in a very neighborhood part of Burbank. nothing spectacular is right by here, so this place is the reason to come here for a somewhat out of towner like me.
Bea Bea is open from 7 AM to 4 PM. I suggest you come here just between 10-11 AM on a weekday or after 1:30 PM any day to get a table here, if you can't make it in right when the doors open- or else, squeeze in at the bar or wait a bit before a table's available.
Favorite Dish: I ended up ordering the Monte Cristo Ham and Gruyere Cheese sandwich with sweet potato fries!
Savory delicious, gooey with gruyere, perfectly grilled sourdough bread!
Big tasty sweet potato fries- not overly fried.
We stopped into here to sit and have a soda. It is a really fun place. Lots to look at and a very relaxing place we enjoyed.

Went to this resto to accompany a friend who wants to inquire about banquet services. The view was superb. I can twinkling lights as far as the eye can see. There were open fire pits surrounded by chairs. I can see wood beams exposed on the ceiling.
Menu listing: The usual shrimp cocktail (US$9.95), new england clam chowder ($4.95), onion soup ($5.95), cobb salad ($12.95), kobe beef burger ($9.95), fish and chips ($11.95) to name a few. To me, this is usual American fare.
We saw the function rooms. Roomy, and the view is simply breathtaking (overlooking DeBell Golf course). They have a gazebo where you can have wedding ceremony and opt to have the banquet indoor or outdoor. How cool is that?
Favorite Dish: None yet
I had been here before when it was French 75 Bistro. Kinda sad it's not there anymore because they made some wonderful crepes. It's still the same owner but they have changed the restaurant into a steak and seafood place. It's very odd because there is an Arnie Morton's Steakhouse (literally) right next door. The decor is still the same, dark and lots of wood. The food is quite expensive. Take a good look at your bill when it comes. My boyfriend ordered a New York Strip for $34 but they charged us $40 for a New York Sirloin. They tried to explain the mistake but we weren't buying it. I ordered the scallops. They were cooked well but I found the dish to be a little saltier than I care for. We ordered the Ahi tuna tartar which was excellent.
I don't know if we will come back here again. I've been to Morton's before and love there food. So, next time it be definitely be Morton's for dinner.
We noticed this place right across the street from Bob’s Big Boy and said we would try it out when I return from my trip. So we did and we not disappointed. It is not a fancy place and is rather small, yet it is charming. We enjoyed our Hot Dogs and enjoyed some of the historical pictures on the wall. The service was good, but was a tad pricey. Still a very nice visit.
This restaurant I found on the web because we wanted a place to have breakfast before I caught an airplane to Fort Worth. I was so ever surprised to see such a wonderful piece still standing and still in business of those by gone days. The décor still gleam the 40 is to 50’s design. Lots of places to eat and the booths are huge. Has those wonderful bar stools to sit up at the counter if you choose to. They have a neat display case with all kinds of Big Boy memorabilia too. The service was FAST, food was good, and at a great prices.
Ever since I went to Thailand, I just can't get enough Thai food. And, luckily, we have lots of Thai food restaurants here in SoCal! This was a very tiny restaurant on a side street off San Fernando Road which is a main shopping area. The lunch menu is only $6.25 and provides a salad, entree, rice and a piece of fried won ton. I had the green curry with chicken. You can select the kind of meat you want. The curry was very delicious.
The food is not fantastic but good and they give you plenty. Restaurant is accessible from street level but actually situated up on the second floor. Indoor and patio areas for dining and some big screens located in the restaurant to view sports.
I'm not one who likes to dine at fast food restaurants but this one is different. The food is a little better in that it's healthier because not everything is fried. The prices are very reasonable. Granted it's not like going to a Greek restaurant and dining in but the food is pretty good for being served within a few minutes. Today, I ordered a chicken pita sandwich (gyro) served with some tzatziki sauce. It was just enough lunch to tie me over until dinner.
We stumbled upon this deli by chance because we decided to check out what was going on with the police and fire departments sponsoring a community event. This also brought us to a weekly farmer's market.
We decided to have lunch here. They also serve breakfast. I ordered the pastrami sandwich and, OMG, thee best pastrami I have ever had! It was amazingly delicious. My boyfriend ordered a fish sandwich but had a bite of the pastrami and had to agree it was extremely good.
6am - 7:30pm Daily
Italian Cuisine, sandwiches and salads. In downtown Burbank, the outdoor seating area with heaters provides a great vantage point to people watch and enjoy good food. The doughy bread sticks served at the table is freshly made and warm. The waiter should offer you balsamic vinegar for your bread along with the olive oil already at the table.
Favorite Dish: Today, I had the ravioli of the day - sweet potato. Ummm, ummm! Very delicious with a delicate alfredo sauce. It went well with the glass of Pinot Grigio I ordered.
If you go shopping at the Burbank Town Center, they will have your typical mall food court like everywhere else. But, this mall also has a few pretty good restaurants connected to the mall such as P.F. Changs and this one, Pomodoro Cucina Italiana. It's connected to the shopping center but you have to exit the indoor part of the mall to get to it. It will be listed on the mall directory to point you in the right direction.
Favorite Dish: I don't have a favorite but what we had today was pretty good. I ordered a 1/2 order of spinach ravioli with a gorgonzola sauce for $5.50. A side salad (delicious!) for $2.79. My boyfriend ordered the Conchiglie Salsiccia which came with a choice of salad or soup for $8.75. These are the lunch prices. They bring fresh bread to your table and a wonderful pesto type sauce with lots of olive oil for your bread dipping.
Okay so I might not normally put a chain restaurant in here but this particular Bob's Big Boy is different. This restaurant was built in 1949 by locals Scott MacDonald and Ward Albert and is the oldest remaining Bob's Family Restaurant in the United States. It has been declared a California Point of Historical Interest. The decor is retro to the 50s. Service was attentive and professional and the food was fine. It was featured in the movies "Heat" and "Austin Powers the Spy Who Shagged Me".
Favorite Dish: I had the Liver and Onions and my friends had the Super Big Boy Combo. We were all very pleased with our food.
