The Stand in Encino - Bleh!

Coachboy | Oct 31, 2005 11:58 AM

Tried this yesterday afternoon...really lovely outdoor space, teaming with families on a Sunday afternoon. I had high hopes.

We ordered a burger, a stand dog, chili/cheese fries and mac and cheese for the toddler. With a couple sodas, tab was $23!!!

Everything was really salty.

The burger was ok, by far the best food.

The stand dog, with mustard,sauerkraut and relish was overwhelmed by an enormous bun and funky tasting sauerkraut. At $3.95, its a total ripoff.

The chili cheese fries were wet, with little cheese. I don't eat these much, but Johnny Rocket's blows these away.

It's too bad, because the setting is really pleasant.
