simply amazing burgers, really tasty chipotle sauce, decent flavor, enjoy go, favorite weeker, more interesting ingredients, great batter
We stopped at Stout Hollywood Burger and Beer for my birthday and we sat at the bar waiting to be seated. The restaurant was not overly busy or super crowded. The hostess Jade approached us at the bar and started telling us about seating us and the menu. One of my friends was talking to another person in our party and happened to be standing next to the waitress. She turned over to him and put her hand 3 inches away from his face and told him "Excuse, I'm talking!" In other words, telling him to shut up. She walked away and heard our conversation that I was upset about her treating us the way she did and she came up with an attitude and said "Are you staying or leaving? because if your leaving I have other people that can sit at the bar where your sitting!" I couldn't believe that again she talked to us like that. I turned to her and said "that was really rude. We came here to eat and that's how you welcome people into the restaurant. No one is drunk here and we're not your typical drunk customers so how you acted was really rude and we won't be eating here." She then with a sarcastic smile said "That's great, I'm sorry but it's been a hectic night" I told her well it doesn't give you the right to treat us that way. She gave me a sarcastic smile again and said "Well, I'm sorry but are you leaving, I have other people to seat?!" I was so fed up with her attitude. I just asked for her name and I took my group of 9 and we left. On our way out I saw her high five the Security.
There are a ton of places to eat on Cahuenga alone. No one needs to deal with that kind of treatment!
THE absolute WORST!.
Absolutely AVOID this place by ALL MEANS. There are SO MANY better burger places to go to in L.A. - this place should be your last.
We ordered a couple of burgers and 3 sides (sweet potato fries, onion rings, regular fries). We had a few bites and noticed the meat was RAW. Not medium, but RAW. I will eat a good steak medium rare, but ground beef at Stout - raw ground beef won't pass.
I asked the waitress why they're so undercooked and she picked them off the table, said she can cook them more and bring them back, and walked away. I ask for the manager and he walks up with a green shirt and backward hat and eyeglasses (owner hopefully knows who this character is) and asks what the problem is. I explain and he says "you're taking advantage of me and I can't do anything". I said the waitress told us she'll cook them for us and he says "no that's not true". The blonde waitress comes back with the bill with everything still on the bill. I ask if we can get at least get our burgers back and she says "I can't do that" and walks away. We ask for the manager again and explain again we had no idea it was going to come out raw. One of the guests explained she's breast-feeding and it's not so safe to eat raw ground beef and he says "I can't do anything for you, if you want your burger your way, go to Burger King". REALLY??? She tells the manager, "how about the saying about the customer being always right"? and the response... "NO the customer is not always right".
I tell the manager we'll pay the full bill and leave some reviews online and his response.... "Go ahead. Nobody reads those anyway".
WOW!!!! This guy and establishment take the cake for the worst service and food I've EVER tried in the world (and I'm well fed and traveled).
So we are trying to pay the bill and obviously are not going to tip the horrible waitress and her boss - so we ask for change and the manager says "we don't carry coins here". ... "Do you have quarters or dimes?" ... "No, we don't carry coins". OK, we'll just keep the change.
Do yourself and your guests a favor and avoid this place by all means. It does not get worse. This should be the last burger joint you try.
Almost beats Umami.
it might be a tie depending on what day or mood I am in...The Stout burger is their best one for sure.
Great beer selection.
No guesswork at Stout. You won't spend forever pouring over the menu at Stout because it's so small, but small in the best way. Don't come here if you aren't craving a good, high quality, flavor packed burger cooked medium to medium rare. They aren't big on substitutions and everything comes as it's described. Mine had Brie and Fig preserves. To die for? Yes. Then there's the beer selection, which is quite exclusive and not overwhelming. Again, simplicity is the key. You are there for burgers and beer and that's it. I came mid day on a Saturday and it was only about half full, but watch out at night when their crowd seems to overflow onto the sidewalk.
Stout's Six Weeker Burger is AMAZING!.
This is my first ever Citysearch review, so here goes... I had to write about this amazing burger spot. I honestly think about this burger when I'm not there. Yeah, it's that good!
I brought my Mom there when she came to visit and told her that no matter the temptation, she had to order the Six Weeker. Yeah, the other burgers are awesome, but the fig jam and the carmelized onions will leave you with the most satisfaction for your belly. Soooo good! It's a must try.
Also, add an order of sweet potatoe chips to your order. The order is big enough for 2-3 people to split and the accompany the burger perfectly.
This place also makes their own beer, but hey, I always go for their burgers, their Six Weeker to be exact.
Stout Burgers and Beers is the bomb.
Stout burgers and beers has become my Sunday ritual. Its a little to much of a haul for me to get there during the week from the far West side with traffic and all but i basically look forward to this meal from Monday on.....
The burgers are simply amazing, second to none. The Six weeker is my personal favorite but recently i have been dabbling with the ios 6am burger and its a very very close second.
The sides are huge, there are always four of us and two sides are enough for everyone.
The beer selection is out of control, its not cheap so dont go trying to but budget beer but if you dont mind spending an extra dollar or two the selection is prime.
Go on sunday enjoy the farmers market and grab a burger and a beer.
I'm Tired of all these Baby Burgers.
The owners of Stout must be some really confident guys. They opened a gourmet burger and beer bar in what I like to think of as LA's Ground Zero of Burgers. Within walking distance is Lucky Devils, Umami Burger, The Bowery, Hungry Cat, 25 Degrees isn't far away and Kitchen 24 and Citizen Smith aren't known for burgers but have them on the menu. I hope they're prepared for an all out burger battle. I don't think they stand a chance.
The second issue I have with Stout is they serve baby burgers, like Umami Burger. The flavor of the burger is decent at best, the meat was flavorless and the pesto sauce has so much basil it tasted minty. The larger issue is that the burger is just too tiny. I suppose if you're a girl, a really small guy, an ant, a squirrel, a fly, a bee, shaped like a toothpick or even an Umpalumpa, then the small burger works for you. But if you're a guy and you want a "BURGER" this isn't the place. And what's the deal with the wax paper. I think my photos actually make the burgers look bigger than they are. Wish my camera did that for other things...
The explanation for the small burger we got was, "It's a Gourmet Burger". THAT'S JUST CRAP! I know plenty of burger places where the gourmet burger is bigger than two sliders and since when did Gourmet mean small? To me gourmet means higher quality, fresher and more interesting ingredients. It doesn't mean the burger gets smaller. Either way, I wouldn't go back. The burger was bland, the toppings were barely there, and all we could think of was is this really what they consider a good burger?
The fries were an interesting twist; they don't serve regular fries, which is fine because the Greek Fries were pretty good. However, the highlight was actually the onion rings. They use a great batter providing excellent flavor. The Chipotle sauce is really tasty also and is a little spicy.
Trying to be positve, the place looks really cool. They did a great job designing it. The Copper beind the bar, the chandler made out of beer bottles, the bar built from bricks and the steel doors with windows that are intended to slide open if it's a nice day are all really cool designs. While I'm being positive maybe the best part of a bad burger experience was our waitress Kelly Gene. She was fantastic. She was sweet, knowledgeable about the food and super accomidating when she realized we really weren't happy with our burgers. She tried to work with us, but really there wasn't anything she could do. The burgers at Stout are small and just aren't very good.
awesome burgers!! definitely recommend.
I saw this place opening up on Cahuenga, thought I would go check it out on a girls night out. We had a big group (7 of us) and they had no problem splitting the check. I got the Stout burger and onion rings, SO YUMMY!! My friends were loving their food as well. It's nicer than what I was expecting from a burgers/beer place but still very laid back.
Only downside I can think of is that you have to find parking on the street,,,but come on, it's LA.
I will definitely be returning soon.
Citysearch Editorial Review. Hollywood’s burgeoning beer scene received a boost in late 2009 when Stout opened on the Cahuegna Corridor. The small space, designed by Kris Keith’s Spacecraft Design (Osteria La Buca, Bar Delux) is inviting with high ceilings, a handsome bar and even a chandelier made of beer bottles. Exposed brick and dim lighting create a modern pub-like glow, and those who are serious about beer appreciate choice options like Quebec’s Maudite or Dale's Pale Ale. But don’t mistake Stout as a simple sports bar. The former home of Karma Coffeehouse serves up upscale bar fare such as juicy brie-laden burgers and there are only two discreet flat screens TVs flanking the beer taps. Bottom line: If you're looking for a bar to watch the game, try Big Wangs (in the same mini mall) or Capitol City down the street. This is where to work your game, not watch the game, with a low-key atmosphere in spades.
