  • LAistThe 90-year-old diner was bought up by former mayor Richard Riordan in 1981, who fell in love with its ruthlessly efficient service. We like the fact that you never know who you'll bump into

    55555 by LAist


  • LAistWe always end up returning again and again through its lockless doors. Maybe it's because it has such a grounding presence in one of the most rapidly changing areas of the city.

    55555 by LAist

    55555 by Vanessa Valentin

    55555 by Laurel K.


  • Naeem RahimiThe well done steak was a wee bit tough to deal with but tasted good, there's no sauce, I guess that's the Traditional American way. But the omllete-kind potatoe that came with the steak was great.
