This had great variety on the menu and lots of healthy options. I did a "make your own" egg white omelette with mushrooms, tomato, spinach and jalapeño. I got tomato slices instead of hashbrowns and chose rye toast. The rye toast was pretty boring but...More

If you're not a regular, based on my experience, it seems you're not welcome. If you're a regular, you'd probably give this place 5 stars. That's how starkly different I was treated by the exact same staff members (plural). And yes, I showered today.

Good old fashion food at a good price. Parking is plentiful so no problem there. Service is very good too.

Only the best there is! Whenever you don't know where to go eat - go here! It's always our standby... because it never lets us down. An extensive menu which is served 24 hours a day, and they have lots of gluten free options too!...More

The retro signage and swoopy roof made me want to try this place. Inside though, it was a rundown hodgepodge of renovations. Food was terrible. They actually failed at making simple diner breakfast and made the pancakes dry. Scrambled eggs were tough and extremely overcooked....More

Corky's Restaurant & Bar in Sherman Oaks is in the location where Lamplighter formerly was. It's an entirely new restaurant focusing on affordable, tasty, home-style dishes with classic American flavors and dining options. It's an old-school diner mixed in with some new, California flair and concepts, and it's a fun place to visit with the family, or with a group of friends to have a good time and enjoy a few beverages.
