We stopped by this location on Valentine's Day as we were passing through and I'm so glad we did! The District is huge and it took awhile to find it, so I wish I'd read the review below first! Anyways, the restaurant itself is so nice compared to the Westwood location - new, clean, spacious, minimally decorated, super nice! It's still order at the counter, but it's set up really well. And we joined the relatively new customer rewards card.
Onto the food - we ordered the chicken wings to start as that's always been my favorite thing (until I tried my meal that is!). We split the entrees - the Oklahoma bacon cheeseburger and the Valentine's Day special of grilled tempeh with garlic mashed potatoes and red cabbage salad. The special was good, but the burger rocked my world like no other burger ever has. Just let me state that when I was an ignorant uninformed kid and knew no better, bacon cheeseburgers were my favorite, so this thing was right up my alley. It was sliced seitan, tempeh bacon, gooey cheese, fried pickles with ranch dressing and I didn't want to share with Dirk at all! Next time, we are both getting one for ourselves. I had high expectations for this burger which is why I got it, but it exceeded them - ultimate vegan junk food.
I also got the watermelon drink which I'd never had and it was quite delicious. We truly enjoyed ourselves in this location and wish they'd open one exactly like it in Hollywood! :-)
great space and set up, bacon cheeseburger!!, easy parking
