We tried The Stand on Ventura Blvd. in Encino about 5:30 PM last Sunday. The layout was pretty nice and the help was friendly, but I thought the food was just fair. They serve hotdogs and sausages. There were about a dozen already done sitting on the grill, looking a little worn out, when we arrived. I ordered the Andoulle sausage, which was fairly tasteless. They have a lot of toppings to select and they are fine, but the bun was too soft and fell apart. I also had the "hot" chile, which was not hot at all and just fair in all other respects. My conclusion is that it is OK to take the boys and girls there after a little league game, but that's about it.
