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.

Tony's is one of those locations that you go to if you know you love IPA's. And really, if you're in California how can you not enjoy a good IPA. That's what we're good at.

The joint has a wide selection of craft beers that you generally won't find in many places in a 10 mile radius. I know if I'm up for Pliny, there's a 90% chance that I will find it here.

The food selection is mainly a variety of different types of hot dogs as well as a good selection of vegan options (their other site Mohawk Bend is more vegan friendly)

They have board games so you can kill time and slip your drink. The place uses proper glassware as well as pours a proper pint. Prices are all around pretty decent.

Wow, what did we we do to deserve this? The new Tony's DA is a dream come true for the residents of Burbank and the surrounding area.
The most remarkable quality of the new Tony's DA is the genuine passion, excitement and enthusiasm the new owner and his staff share for exploration into the complex art of craft brewing, - particulary focusing on a diverse spectrum of unique and quality brews originating from our home state of CA.

In addition to the "earth conscience" efforts to only drink fresh, local beer from CA, the new Tony's DA serves a wide assortment of interesting sausage sandwich combinations (Vegan+regular) as well as a couple of solid, fresh Salad options and a hand-made Orange Cream soda made by a brewery in OC called ??

Overall - a GREAT place to have in town and well worth patronizing on a regular basis.

P.S. Did I mention that the owner has two deluxe dog beds right out front for your dogs to hang out in while you stop in for a beer at your local Burbank beer bar :)

Everything about this little bar is perfect.

they must have over 35 taps but have a strict no bottle policy that is a statement about how environmentally friendly they are and how committed they are to fresh beer. They only sell Cali beer which is fine with me cuz there is so much to choose from here.

The beer is very reasonably priced. I had a Pliny the Elder for $6! I had a pint of Sculpin on cask for $6 also. Racer 5 only $4.50. And they serve real full pints.

The owner, Tony, imagine that, is very passionate about craft beer and he is usually at the bar. I talked to him about his all craft, all draft, all California motto and he totally convinced me that this is a great idea whose time has come.

I go to this bar on a regular basis even though I live about 10 miles away. the beer is always top notch with lots of new stuff always available.

Food is great, gotta try those sweet potato fires, they are insanely good.

This is my all time favorite place to drink a beer and relax with friends.

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.

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.

Not only do they have over 30 California beers on tap, they are only $4.50-$6.00 for a real pint. They also do flights and half pints which in nice. The food is awesome, especially the sweet potato fries. They even have vegan food that I could actually swallow.
They have a good mix of tables and bar seats. There's a pool table and a dart board of course and 3 tvs. Not only do they have books you can check out, they have games to play like Connect Four and Trivial Pursuit. Its a good place to have lunch and they allow children up until a certain time. Not only the best bar in Burbank probably my favorite in the San Fernando Valley.

Tony's Darts Away is the new player on the block in Burbank. There is no other place that can even come close, though. The taps are the best selection around for miles and miles. The idea of stocking only California brewed beers in kegs only is revolutionary and genius. Tony and his crew are some of the nicest and well educated people in the business. Since they opened I have learned so much more about beer and brewing that I consider Tony's Darts Away my home away from home.

If you have not been, you are missing out. It is definitely a pleasure to hear a keg blow out and know that a different beer will be on tap next.

I have had the great pleasure of meeting Lee Chase there and learning about his Blind Lady Ale House in San Diego. That was very cool.

See you at Tony's...

Dive bar converted to a hip craft beer spot.

This place rocks.

The inside is a long room, to one side the bar, and the other small black tables with chair and booth type seating. The place usually gets pretty packed at night, so if you are looking to grab a beer at a quiet bar on a weekday night, this might not be the best spot.

At first I took the idea of 'All draught, All California' to be pretty gimmicky, but I got over that really quick.

They have a great rotating selection, fresh IPAs are always plentiful.

The service is all at the bar, but is always attentive and quick.

The food is really good, as long as you are in the mood for sausages or salads. I have always gone with a sausage made up with toppings that fit my mood, or just sharing a side of sweet potato fries with some friends.

The place doesn't try to charge more than they need to either, which is great. The pours are all less than $6 or so, and the food is reasonable as well.
