Good large portion, we ordered the sink for five people and there was ample food for us. Chips were the best we had in LA and large selection of beers! Highly recommend this place!

I am so happy with this restaurant. The pork ribs meaty, juicy and tasty. Being in Downtown LA is a bonus. Mid afternoon street parking was available. The staff was excellent. I'll definitely return.
