I think enough has been said on this place and the reviews speak for themselves, but if I could add one thing regarding the service. The service makes this place, the passion and love for craft been makes this place what it is and with that everything else follows. Would not change a thing about this place other than move it to my neighborhood back east (HA!), but since that is not possible I will just continue to enjoy this place on my West Coast trips.

I stopped by here on a trip to the LA area. Great craft beer selection. I came by just to try Pliny the Elder, which I can't get anywhere near where I'm from. They had tons of beers on tap, and the food looked great. Most were ordering a 4 beer sampler kinda deal. We sat around and watched the NFL game on TV at the bar, but if we had got there 20 minutes later we would've had to wait for a table. Cool place.

Fantastic craft beer bar. It's the perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening. Even if you stop in for a short time its still is a pleasant experience. Only downfall is that it is a smaller place so it can be crowded. Just means it's popular which isn't a downfall just something to keep in mind if your wanting a place to sit on a friday night. This bar is pretty much my go to bar for craft beer and relaxation.

I love this place and since I'm new to beer advocate I wish I would have rated it before. There beer selection is what I go there for. Tony does what he wants and it works well for there location. I love the menu, ipa. Not ipa. Simple and efficient and I like it that way. I've also have been to his other location the mowhak bend. Now that place knows how to do it right. I'll review it later.. Now with darts away you can go in there with some friends and choose from the many games they have on shelves,pick hungry hippo, and all the beer books. You can borrow them if they still allow it. I recommend this place to any hopp head and challenge them to try a pint of all there ipa's and be able to walk out of there.

There is something very nice about a beer menu separated into an IPA page and Not IPA page. The beer at Tony's is always first rate but lately I've been going for the food. I am addicted to the Streetmeat Sausage and the Sweet Potato Fries.
Sculpin is always on tap, need I write more? The beer selection never disappoints and the bartenders know what they're talking about without being snobby or over the top.
Tony's Darts Away has a well deserved reputation as one of the best beer bars in Los Angeles.

Stopped by for first time for their IPA fest during LA beer week. Had 20 or so taps dedicated to hoppy varieties. Not a huge place but it wasn't a problem on a Sunday afternoon, got the last seats. Nice and cool inside (small outdoor seating section in front also.) a bit of pub atmosphere - shelf with books and games (kids imediatly started to play with), also a pool table and TV's with football on (but not an overwhelming sports feel).

The taps list was more than decent but nothing that I was blown away by either. They had a pre-made tasting flight or you can make your own with any of the beers they served in pints. Beers served in tulips were only available that way. Pricing on the beer was very reasonable.

All ordering is done at the bar, you get a number and your food is delivered to the table. Whole page of the menu dedicated to sausages - both meat and vegan. Also noticed fries salads and sandwiches. Had a Italian sausage with onion, peppers an mustard. no substitutions allowed other than you can switch out the bun for a bed of lettuce. Pretty tasty. Also had tatter tots - also good.

Pretty dead area of Burbank on a Sunday - not sure if I quite get the location or not, but I don't spend a lot of time in Burbank.

Would definitely stop by again - only 10 minutes from the Zoo / Golden road. Kid friendly place (at least in the day).

A small vegan bar located in Burbank CA. They have pretty much a vegan friendly menu, but nothing that screams real pub food. It was pretty good, but I'm not sure I would rush back here for the food. The taps were really good, They have 36+ taps and a cask..

-Ballast Point Sculpin
-Stone Cali-Belgique
-Nectar Hemp Ale
-Lagunitas Gnarleywine
-Firestone Walker Solace
All California Beers!!!!

Most was served in the correct glassware. In the craft beer wasteland of Burbank this place has one of the better selections.
Biggest down fall is that you have to server yourself. I don't like to tip 20% when I do all the work. I'm to old for that.

This is my after work hang and after a few years of being a regular I am happy to say that TDA is still the best place for beer in all of Los Angeles. The new patio can't be beat and the food specials are always a delicious bargain.
My man Jim behind the bar always keeps it real and always has a good suggestion. Yesterday he recommended a beer called Saber Tooth Squirrel, something I wouldn't order on principal alone, and it was fantastic.
I enjoy the mellow vibe and the laid back crowd almost as much as the monster beer list filled top to bottom with old favorites and things you've never heard of.

Had to, had to, HAD TO stop by this place when in the area last week. This was my #1 stop on our quick trip to the area. I now wish I would have gone everyday. Really cool looking building from the outside, but smaller than I thought. As others have noted, the parking is free on the street. We parked about half a block away which was nice. Nice bar that seats maybe 15-20 people. Small tables scattered throughout. A lone pool table and a lone dart board in the back. For having "Darts" in the name, I figured there would be more dart boards available. Ah well, it was free so we played for about an hour. Their tap list was nothing short of amazing. All beers are from CA, and half of them (about 20) are IPAs. I'm in heaven. The service was excellent. Friendly, but not overly so. Got our drinks quickly and in the correct glassware, which is always a bonus. We just missed Pliny, which was my biggest disappointment from our trip, but it was a small price to pay for such an awesome establishment. Were I a local, I would hit this place up constantly. A bar any city would be proud to have.

Had read about this place some time ago and decided to invite a few co-workers. Everyone in our group of 10 agreed what great place this is. Each one of us have different tastes in brews, Pils to Stout. The sweet lady poured perfectly and explained the various pours and glassware to my pils buddy. Take a look at the beer book library. My hefe boss even dug this pub. I would guess there 15 to 20 bar stools and table seating for 40. Without a parking lot, you'll find free street parking on the two cross streets. We were there at 4 on a weekday afternoon, so parking was very easy. Yes, PTE was available!

I freaking love this place. You will too. I really think there's not other explanation needed. This is Burbank's premiere venue for craft beer... the closest competition is another place Tony owns... Golden Road Brewery's brew pub a few miles away.

Tony's only serves California brewed beers. At first I was worried that they might run out of options for me... but that was dumb. They have over 40 beers on draft, half of them IPAs (gotta love that) and it never gets old. They have a constant rotation, there is always something new. You really can't beat this place. On top of that, Tony is really a great guy. He's always smiling and saying hi.

As for the food... It is very Vegan oriented. But like the IPAs taking up 50% of the beer selection, vegan only takes up 50% of the food. Point being: Carnivores welcome. I'm no where near a vegan but now I find myself ordering some of their vegan sausages because it's not easy to tell the difference. I wish they had a bigger selection of sides, but I don't want to split hairs.

If I had one wish, it'd be to expand the place. People love it there and it's not always easy to find a seat. Even if we stand up, we're always satisfied.

Great spot, easily visited if you are heading north or south on Interstate 5, easy to park cars (or bikes) in front. Stopped in for Brunch this past Saturday. Very tasty food for Vegans and Non-Vegans - "cooked on separate cookware" in a tiny kitchen where several workers were busy. Visiting from NorCal I was especially interested in local beers not available in the Bay Area, and found many: Golden Road, Beachwood Brewery, Cismontane, Surf, LadyFace. I really appreciated the samplers which allowed me to try samples of sevear different new-to-me beers for a reasonable price and still be sober. Not certain if the sampler option is available in the evening when things are busier. Loved playing pool there. Very nice spot. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Oh, if you want to laugh and cry you need to read the Yelp review by a disgruntled former customer - probably the only 1 star yelp review of this place.
