A fantastic Burger.
Some people think paying more than 10$ for a burger is too much. if you don;t like spending that kind of money for a burger, lucky devil's isnt for you.
I have had burgers at the counter, pie n burger, apple pan, In N Out, Carls Junior's 6 dollar burger, and a few other burger places. I have to say that those burgers are just not very good in my opinion, and shouldnt be compared to this burger. If you love those places, DO NOT COME TO Lucky Devil's. You will feel cheated.
If you like burgers at 3rd stop, the york, fathers office, library alehouse, redwood bar and grill, Ebizos, the bowery, 25 degrees, bar marmont, then I would recommend trying the awesome burgers and beer here. I personally like it better than all of the above, but most of the above are also very good.
The owner obviously puts a lot of care into his burgers and his beer, and I respect that.
The KOBE is the best burger ever!!.
Heard that Lucky Devils served a mean burger and finally tried one. It was by far the juiciest and most flavorable burger I ever ate. I tried the Kobe Diablo that was served with bacon,carmelized onions, avocado and topped off with a sauce that had some kick to it. I had the side salad which was good but the french fries were to die for. Crisp and full of flavor and they didn't skimp on the portion either. The other people in our party were very satisfied with their orders as well. The turkey meatloaf and Kobe Bleu burgers also received two thumbs up. Topped off the dinner with the fabulous Kentucky Cream cake, which was moist and very decadent (not to be eaten by someone counting calories).
The wait staff was friendly and prompt. Food was served hot and they continued to check back on us during the evening. Lucky himself even checked on our group to make sure everything was OK and to our satisfaction. The only problem I have with the restaurant is the location....... I wish it was closer to South Orange County!!! Hopefully, Lucky Devils will open a second location in OC so I can visit on a regular basis and continue to enjoy a hamburger that truly melts in your mouth.
Lucky .... no more!. LD is waaaaaaaay over priced, but it is close to our office so we would visit there semi-frequently. Never again. Spending over $80.00 (with tip) for three for lunch is a little much since the food is not that outstanding. It is good food, don't get me wrong, but not for that price in the Hollywood area for sandwiches, french fries and a drink . Today was the deal breaker though, we looked at our bill and not only is the menu prices high for what you get, Lucky now finds it neccessary to charge 50cents for condiments. I mean come on. If you are going to drop over $25.00 per person for lunch the least of it all you should be able to get a side of Aoli for dipping fries, or a side of hot sauce for free. Now 50cents is not that big a deal but when the prices are too high as it is, it just adds insult to injury.
Outstanding!. By far the best hamburger I've ever had! I was so impressed that I've been back a couple of times and the food is consistently good. Parking is just around the corner and convenient. The restaurant is casual - almost a diner atmosphere - but you can tell that they put a lot of money into refurbishing the building and in the decor. Beer selection is the best in the city. Lucky was there and came out to chat with the tables - very friendly as were the servers. They even let us sample a few different desserts - all were outstanding. I'd go back anytime.
One of the few beer-centric places in the area.. I'm surprised everyone is talking about the burgers and fries and not the beer. Fortunately, beer is becoming more widespread in LA, but we still have a lot of catching up to do to places like San Diego. This is a gem in the rough for Hollywood - a true beer lover's resting spot, with rotating (albeit slowly) handles from noted West Coas brewers like AleSmith, Lagunitas, Stone, Lost Coast as well as the occasional out-of-state brewer. They always have one or two delicious stouts on tap, which go down wonderfully with a juicy burger or sandwich. Speaking of food, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food preparation here. I can't attest to the desserts, but for the main items, I noticed a high attention to detail in the cooking and presentation. For a place loosely referred to as "burger joint," it's actually more deserving of a title like "restaurant." Combine the high quality of the traditionally-boring food items with the mouth watering, highly specialized beer choices, and you have yourself one of the only redeeming locations in the Hollywood/Highland zoo.
Drop a paycheck at Lucky Devils. Seriously overpriced. 20 bucks for a burger is absurd and the service is rediculous. The servers pass by tables left and right and I was left sitting for 15 minutes with an empty glass before being asked if I wanted another drink. When my burger did come it was overcooked and when I asked them to recook it, i heard foul language coming from the kitchen. My dressing oily and broken and my girlfriends fries were far too overcooked. We ordered a cupcake for dessert and although it looked good (it was the only dessert in the case that did, the others looked like a 5 year old made them) it was dry and tasted old and stale. Seriously dont waste your time or money here. Youre better off making a burger at home.
WHY DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS PLACE SOONER!!! BEST DAMN BRUNCH AND LUNCH. Ok now.... I have just moved to LA from San Francisco. Can I just say how under-whelmed I am with the food in Los Angeles. I feel like you can stumble across any number of amazing restaurants in Sf and only expect to pay $10 for your meal. Not the case for LA. That said... I have recently come across Lucky Devils. I was a little skeptic at first, thinking it was another actor turned restaurateur type place. Not the case what so ever. The quality of food, the service, everything about it reminded me of home! Finally a place I will return to over and over. I came for the all you can drink mimosas at brunch. Had the French toast and spicy sausage. AWESOME is all I can say!!! I came back for lunch and brought a friend back with me. She is a vegetarian so I was a little worried because this place is know for their burgers. To my surprise they had an awesome selection for the veggies. I had the Kobe Bacon Blue. The best damn burger I have ever had!! I'm craving it just thinking about it. With lunch we had a one of the 40 Hand Crafted Beers. Ok what!!! The beer selection was outstanding. Not expected. My friend had a Spiked Mango Lim-aide with a huge strawberry garnish. She sucked that down in about 2 seconds and went for another. After my beer I tried the Devils Mary. PERFECTION. They gave me a side plate with there special in house made hot sauce, in house made pickles, in house blue cheese garlic stuffed olives a lime and celery. I?m telling you this place is awesome. I cant say AWESOME enough. Ill be back at least once a week.
Delicious Entrees and Friendly Service. Just a few weeks ago, while visiting Los Angeles, we had the "Lucky"opportunity to visit Lucky Devils twice. Both times, our experience with the restaurant and its staff was outstanding. On our first visit, we (a group of five) ordered lunch. From the Mango ice tea, a variety of hamburgers, to the desserts, our meals were delicious. You can tell alot by a restaurant too, by how clean the bathrooms are, which they were spotless. The mouthwatering meals, left us will the feeling that we couldn't wait to go back for more. Our second visit was on Sunday morning, where brunch entrees were being offered. Again, our service was friendly and well informed, and our meals were excellent. It was also an honor to meet the owner, Lucky Vanous, who took time out from his duties in the kitchen to greet us and welcome us to his establishment. Now that I am back in Florida, I have cravings for the scrumptous desserts that we all shared, from the berry cobbler to the red velvet cupcakes. I will be sure to visit Lucky Devils each time I make a trip to L.A.. I will also tell anyone that is visiting Hollywood, if they want a delicious breakfast or a casual but tasty meal for lunch or dinner, to be sure and eat at Lucky Devils.
kobe beef burgers is for losers..
this place is awesome. they use "kobe" beef for burgers.
it's really just wagu, not from kobe.
and because you buy and enjoy kobe for the texture and marbling of fat, it makes more than perfect sense to grind it up and mix it up with other meat to completely rid yourself of the marbling and texture. total time waster. burger was a little small for the price. considering 25 degrees is right down the street.
you can do better.
Burgers, Fries, and Shakes- Elevated to an Art Form!. I've been a vegetarian for 16 years, and this was the BEST veggie burger I've ever had. With its flavorful ingredients and pleasant color and texture, it has spoiled me forever! We arrived on a busy afternoon yet were seated immediately, and our server (Billy) was terrific. Everything arrived in a timely manner, and it was all fantastic. The kids' mac and cheese is the real thing- no fake orange junk here! The chocolate cake shake was amazing, as were the rootbeer floats and the cupcakes. We ordered fries to share just because I'd heard how good they were...they were gone in seconds. Light and crispy, there's nothing like them out there. The produce is incredibly high quality, and I love that it's organic, the way we eat at home. Everything was extremely fresh and tasted home-made. We were also pleased with how clean it is here. (Can't say the same for a lot of places in Hollywood! ) As for the various complaints I've seen here- the tv screens are really unobtrusive- even the two 9 year old boys with us didn't really pay attention to them. The price seemed competitive to me- two adults and five kids ate lunch and dessert for about $80. As for parking, the streets are tough, but there are lots nearby, so it's really not an issue. It's just a short stroll down the blvd. from the El Capitan theater. I've sent many people here already since we were there two weeks ago, and I hope to get back soon. A definite must try!
