March 22, 2012

I passed by this place many times, and it never appealed to me as a nice place to eat. The outside doesn’t look like a restaurant, and the word monkey doesn’t sound tasty.

Hard Rock Cafe (Universal City) – Sadly, All Around The World

October 24, 2011

Remember back in the days, before The Grove, before The Americana?  Everyone used to hang out at Universal City Walk.  Though still a popular spot, it wasn’t what it used to be – at least to me.  After watching a movie on IMAX, my family and friends wanted to eat. This was the first time […]

Their menu is pretty standard — burgers and fries.  The food here was alright, nothing […]

5 Guys Burgers and Fries – Something Familiar Becomes Brand New

May 30, 2011

It looks like the predominantly East Coast eatery has made its way well into the West.  Upon arriving, 5 Guys seems to have the color scheme of the very West coast hamburger joint, In-n-Out.

May 26, 2011

Walking into Heroes, I was overwhelmed with all the decorations and busy-ness there was.  Lights stretched around the room, peanut shells on the floor, and walls full of anything.  I bet there could have been a picture of my face, penciled in fake mustache and all, and I’m sure I would have missed it.
