Do yourselves a favor and pick up a bag of fries... you will not be disappointed! Actually, you'll wonder how you could have been missing out on inexpensive, delish, seasoned fries all this time, haha! Will be going back to try out their burgers... and for more fries... maybe not the large bag next time--so much came w/ the large.... More

I go there often for a quick bite. I've had Cheeseburgers, Hot Dogs, Gyros, Chicken Sandwich and Greek Chicken Salad, and of course the Fries. Everything is exactly what you would expect at a good burger / sandwich place.

Good fast food. Fries were awesome. As an east coast person, the pickles on the pastrami kind of threw me but the pastrami itself was good.

You get a huge amount of food for your money. The Pastrami is piled high and is fabulous. I haven't had the fries because I'm an Onion Ring person and they get an A+ for them. They Rock!,,

I was invited to go have pastrami sandwiches, one of my favorite things to eat. My favorite pastrami place is Johnny's Pastrami in Culver City, a five star rating easy. If Johnny's pastrami sandwiches are a "10", then Daglas version is right there at probably a "9". The fries are decadent at Daglas. Large in quantity and great in taste.... More

The fries there are simply amazing. Plus the value of getting such a huge bag of them when you order is great. Most of their other food was okay, I have had burger, chicken nuggets, and a chicken sandwich there before, but they werent the greatest.

If you are looking for an original (since 1079) drive in meal this is it. Fries and onion rings served in a large bag, think 3 large Mcdonalds fries. fantastic pastrami and burgers to die for. as they put it "Old-fashioned American drive-in featuring big portions of burgers, fries & sandwiches since 1979"

My family and I live here in San Fernando Valley and my dad has raved about Daglas since before I could walk. Our relatives talk about this place every time they're in town. It's definitely safe to say this place is a family favorite. The burgers here are delish, but we always come for the fries. OH MY GOODNESS and... More
