“A very average evening out”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2010

Prie Fix menu was enticing. Wife and I both ordered it. It was down hill from there. Food preparation was OK, nothing memorable at all about the meal. Service was no better than at Denny's. Server was not attentive to our needs, did not tell us about specials nor "up sell" desserts at our table. Overall, disappointing experience - was expecting a little more up scale for the price.

“DON'T WASTE YOUR $$$$”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2009

This restaurant has really gone downhill. I know the economy is bad, but that is no excuse for using substandard ingredients. The steak used in the Carl's Junior breakfast burrito may be better than the steak they serve in this restaurant. They offer deals for a reason- the food is terrible. No wonder they have to resort to the hokey 30% off letters -- no one is going to this restaurant. There are so many great restaurants in Los Angeles-don't bother with this one.

“Poor Service and Gross Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2009

I would highly recommend avoiding this restaurant at all costs. They have really cut down on the quality and their staff. I heard that the owner is currently having cash flow problems and may be looking to dump this place.

“Great food, great value has us coming back for more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2009

We have been dining here since its inception and the quality of the food is consistently good. Owner Bobby Burton welcomed us on our recent visit and we felt like family. Shirley was our waitress extraordinaire. We cannot wait to return!
