I had dinner with two firends who are not very chowish..more about the same places they know and like. One had no request, the other just wanted a beer with dinner. I told them I had been wanting to try The Stand in Encino.
The service was great. Murray the owner came over to talk to us and offered if we wanted anything or had any requests to find him.
I ordered a Kraut dog with the baked beans and the Stand brewed Honey Ale. Amy the Midtown and Lisa had the Chicago dog, both with a beer. The dogs were great. Perfect snap when you bit into them! Beans were good ...not too sugary. I liked the Ale, but a little mild.
We will definitely go back! Maybe even for the Monday night $1 hot dog night. Thanks Steve Doggie Dog for the rec!!!
