We were taking some friends to LAX to catch a flight and stopped off at Truxton's for dinner. We were seated right away. My wife and I had the Sriracha grilled chicken bowl. Nice heat and flavor. My son had Chili Verde Burrito. Our friends had salads and wings. Everybody was pleased with their orders. The nice part was that... More

If your near LAX or even if you're not this restaurant has everything you could possibly want, including a full bar. The service is excellent, the food superb and the menu has some very unique choices. We opted for the Monkey Bread which is served with 3 different dipping sauces and wine by the glass. Because we had bread for... More

We went here cause we had exhausted all other food ethnicities throughout our stay. Per trip advisor the ratings were great. We did not have reservations and we're seated immediately. Friendly wait staff arrived with water and mention their specials and made drink recommendations. We asked our waitress her recommendations and we ordered everything she mentioned from the coleslaw with... More

Got there it was about a 15 minute wait but it turned out to be a little bit longer. When we got seated our service was nothing short of excellent. The food was so good. The monkey bread is something you got to try. My entire meal was really good. This restaurant is a wonderful place to eat. I'm sure... More

I live nearby and come here often. Everything I've tried has been good. I usually get a burger because they're terrific and always cooked just right. I order it rare and it comes either rare or slightly more towards medium so someone is really paying attention on the kitchen. Roast chicken, brisket, charred broccoli... They definitely know how to make... More

This is a busy place and it isn't a bad idea to book. The service is friendly and efficient. The menu has alot of variety and is quite interesting. Both our meals were delicious. Only downsides are, it can be a little noisy and parking can be a challenge.

Good option near LAX that seems to attract a local crowd as well as visitors from nearby hotels. Extensive American menu. At our table, the Gilly burger looked great but the burger itself lacked taste(condiments made up for it), the rotisserie chicken needed more seasoning. The Marrakech Pasta and Daily special Tuna were excellent for flavor and balance. Good service... More

I was in LA for business and after our presentation, my team wanted a good lunch. We had a variety of tastes, so wanted to pick something that everyone would like. There's a variety of choices of menu items from flatbread pizzas to handhelds to entrees. Nice, relaxed atmosphere and good service. Good choice of beer as well with seasonal... More

Maybe I'm getting tired of the formula - and of formula restaurants in general - but this place didn't excite me. Typical big bar open to the huge dining area filled with clothless tables. At least, while vibrant, it wasn't too noisy to be able to hold a conversation. The recommended Monkey bread was good, but not special, and gained... More
