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.

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.

This place is a beer lovers paradise, there are a load of beer books you can read there or barrow, on every thing from cooking with beer and home brewing to rating beer. I like the fact they have half pints and there pint glasses are actually 16 fluid ounces. I also like that they are keeping it local all the bees are regional from within the state. Last night I had Old Godfather Barley Wine-Style Ale from Speakeasy, I couldn't believe they had it there. They are putting in 2 cask ales I cant wait to try those. Over all its a wonderful place.

This is my go to place since I work about 10 minutes away. I'm there at least once a week when I got off of said job.

Being that my shift ends an hour before they close and I get no dirty looks for coming in at that time is a huge plus for me. I am always welcome there with a smile and a beer.

The bartenders are great and are always attentive. They have a good selection of beer BUT my only gripe with what they serve here is that it's all California breweries. I would love to just come here and have a beer from another brewerie from another state. so sometimes I'm forced to go elsewhere for something else outside of California.

But in all everything else about Tony's is great.
Highly recomended from this guy!

This place was definitely the highlight of my 10 day trip to southern CA. The bartender was great, the selection was amazing. In west coast fashion, they have an an entire section devoted to IPA's. The atmosphere is laid back, with tons of beer and brewing books laying around to look at. I had spent a week looking around LA and San Diego for some bottles to bring back to Iowa, and after a couple hours at Tony's I had the lead on where to find everything I was looking for. The beer is great and the conversation is better. I will be going back if I'm ever in Burbank again.

As a Portland native and long time beer lover, I can without
hesitation, suggest Tony's Darts Away as the top beer bar between San Francisco and San Diego. And I put it up against any SF or SD place too.
Where do I start? How about the beer... They have 39 beers on tap including two beer engines and three nitro taps. All of the beer is on draft. It is all from California and it is all incredible. No concession Bud Light in bottles or Guiness on tap.
The sign prominently reads: All craft, all draught, all California and this place delivers. Honest Pint certified, beautiful large pours, super cheap prices, rotating selection to keep the beer geeks swarming and about 10 resident taps that keep regulars happy.
There is nothing wrong and everything right about this neighborhood pub.
Food is very good and has a ton of vegan stuff. Atmosphere is beer bar
perfect. Simple, easy to relax, comfortable, games, jukebox.
The best thing about this place might be the vibe. Staff is well
trained and passionate about beer without being pretentious or pushy at all.

Mwah - I heart Tony's.

ps. just got a private message from a fan of this bar asking why I had given them $$$$. My mistake, Tony's is very inexpensive.

Beer bars are a hard to find blessing in the Los Angeles area, but Tony's Darts Away is one of a kind.

Tony's features amazing service, happy customers, helpful and beer-savoy regulars, great food, and most importantly outstanding beer. The bar's beer selection changes daily, some days more drastically then others. As kegs pop the diligent and dedicated staff of Tony's Darts Away quickly replace them with some of the rare gems hidden away in the bars cramped and packed-full cold box.

For being a bar that is less then 3 months old, officially having its grand opening May 10, its astonishing to see such beers as Russian Rivers Damnation, Consecration, and most recently Blind Pig available on draught.

What is equally astonishing is the wide selection of vegan food offed. Regardless whether you are a vegan or not the vegan sausages are to die for. Tony's also offers pork and chicken for those who just can't live with out it, as well as several salads and appetizers, including the tantalizing sweet potato fries.

Tony's offers a relaxed, peaceful, coffee house-esque atmosphere during the day while having a feverish and hip night life. The bartenders are more of beer historians then just people who pour beer, and will gladly explain and assist any need. But if your looking to expand your beer knowledge and palette get there before 5pm. Tony's gets busy fast.

Tony's has great beer, great people, and is always a great experience. If you live in the Los Angeles area there is no excuse not to pay Tony's a visit. If your not in the mood for a surprise check out their website to see an up-to-date beer list.

Amazing beer selection, and extremely reasonably priced. if you are into craft beers, you must check this spot out!

pretty trendy; a lot of hipsters.... but the beer selection is worth it.

regarding the ambiance; think upscale dive bar with great beer selection.

i have had a few sausages and they are pretty good, not as good as würstkuche, yet good none the less.

they have an outside patio, a pool table, a dart table (shitty darts), and a jukebox thingy that people can choose the music (i.e., hit or miss music).

all in all Tony's is a really great spot that anyone who loves beer, or is just getting into craft beers to try some amazing brews!

I've been to Tony's a lot lately and I can say I've been seriously impressed every single time.

Bar staff is super friendly, always willing to help you find what you might like to try. The food is AWESOME. I've gone in there and literally ordered 3 or 4 different things because I could not stop eating (and I'm not a big eater). The fact that they have a Vegan menu is pretty awesome, and though I'm not vegan, it's actually really really good versus some of the "fancy upscale" vegan places.

Great price, great bar staff, by far the cleanest bathroom facility I've ever seen in a bar (seriously, some bars have the gnarliest bathrooms in L.A).

Seriously, you need to go here if you live in L.A, are visiting, or want to visit. Make this one a bucket list. Because you'll feel like you've died and gone to heaven, especially if you love beer.

The menu is broken down between IPA and Non-IPA, they have wine on the menu but if you're going to go to Tony's, you go for the Beer!

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.
