This place is a madhouse from 5 to 7 p.m. The loft scene and young professionals all empty into this place after work for their fries and obscure bratwursts. The line for food is a bit ridiculous for what amounts to a highbrow Pink's but to each his own, this site is not called Hotdogadvocate.com.

The beers are fairly one note with plenty of german/belgian offerings. Of note they had Duvel Green and some other rare beers but the pricing, $9 at times, is a bit too much given the location and atmosphere. I guess this place is better than Angel City brewing, but it just isn't worth the money and hectic madness. Sitting on park table benches isn't amazing either. Parking situation is a nightmare. These things aren't exactly dispositive but it certainly is a drawback.

Don't avoid, but you may feel that sparing visits may be warranted.

This place is located near Little Tokyo in the Arts District. I went today around 3 p.m. to miss the crowd. Good thing. I got right in, ordered and got my food quickly. For the most part, it's a nice atmosphere. You order and pay for your food at the front, get a number, and sit in a communal area in the back with a bar. There's also an outdoor seating area.

I ordered the rabbit and pork sausage with some fries. I thought my sausage was dry. I don't know if they cooked it well since it had pork in it. I was expecting something more juicy. Since there are reviews here about the rattlesnake and rabbit sausage being good, I'll try that next time. The fries were good. I really liked some of their mustards like dijon and honey mustard.

I didn't order any beer, just had water.

I'll be back, got to try something else. Today wasn't a home run, unfortunately.

Seriously this place is rad. Cool spot in the arts district of LA. Amazing rattlesnake rabbit and jalapeño sausage with some crispy Belgian fries. It seems that people mainly come here for the crazy sausages but really you can't forget all the amazing Belgian beers here. This place is worth the drive, wait and not so great parking. Cool place to hang out.
