Great place for getting your dog on.

The beef dogs are not bad. They have a nice snap to them if you like that kind of thing. Me personally, I like the dirty water dogs of NYC, just can't take NYC out of the boy.

Now you know why the place is packed on weekends...awesome place, great food and reasonably priced. It has been something like a tradition for me, my wife and daughter to go to the stand at least once or twice a month (yeah, even on

I love the veggie burgers at The Stand. The wait staff are always friendly and helpful, eager to please. I've never had a bad meal there, and I'd recommend them without reservation.

This is an ideal place to go with your family.The low-key atmosphere combined with the great food choices make this an easy place to eat with your kids. There is a large outdoor seating area that is nice if you have a large party. The food is delicious and the best part is that they serve beer.

I take my grand kids here a few times a month on the weekend. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. My wife and I are fans.

Pros: Can't think of a one.

Cons: Truly contemptuous of their clientele.

Our family goes to the stand at least every other week, especially in the summer. It's a great place to take the kids and not have to cook, without spending a fortune (like most of the other restaurants in this area). It's somewhere

Pros: Ambience, Live Jazz, Microbrews, Relaxed Atmosphere

Cons: Can't think of any!

Chicken apple sausage is just yummy! Great hot dogs at decent prices. Go during the week to beat the crowds...Saturday's during the day you can't get in the place. They're doing something right.

Speaking about the posts from oneblondie and leeyeager... rarely should anyone trust extremely negative posts from reviewers that have only one post. and post two days in a row. As a person in the biz, it looks more like a local

Pros: Garden

Cons: No inside tables for $1 dog Mondays

At first glance the menu is intimidating. It is HUGE! Burgers, dogs, etc. I was sure I was going to blow my diet. I hate to be "that guy" that goes out to eat with friends and can't find options that keep me on track. After speaking to a very helpful cashier, I was directed to some great low-cal, healthy options. It's not just a high-class burger joint guys, although it's that too. I had a boneless, skinless chicken breast sandwich on a whole wheat bun. Everything you could want comes on the side. It was REALLY good. Juicy and flavorful. My friend had the avocado bacon cheeseburger with fries. He raved about it. This is what is so cool about the place. Whether you're training for a marathon or in the mood to splurge, they have it all. Very nice atmosphere too. Check it out.

Zagat survey rates it well, but the hot dogs weren't anything special because the meat wasnt juicy, plump or even tasty, I would rather have a hot dog at costco or downtown LA. However the setting was cute and there was A LOT of patio

Pros: Nice setting for a hot dog joint.

Cons: Bad hot dog.

Just a horrible experience! My burger was tasteless and my drink was more carbonated water than soda.\r
The service was non-existent and the price was far more than I would have spent at any other burger or hot dog joint. Would never eat

Honestly the worst hot dog I ever had, the fries were not much better, how did they find such small potatoes. Even the drinks (ice tea) didn't taste good. My boyfriend had a hamburger that looked terrible and they forgot the cheese,

This place should not be in the top 10 of anything. I only went because it's supposed to as good as Pink's or Carney's. WRONG, this place wouldn't know a good hot dog if it slapped them in the face and the french fries were cold.

the only place i could compare this to is in-n-out. although the burgers there are better. and so are the fries. i had the ahi burger since that sounded better than the other things they were serving. it was a bit on the fishy side. can't

The food here just isn't good but it's a nice place and it's cheap. I've had the vegi burger and I don't recomend it. If you're a vegetarian then don't go there. The potato chips are great though and the diet coke was not bad.

I, too, was really excited when I first found the stand. I have been there more than 4 times in the last year. Unfortunately, however, I like the ambience more than the food. The hot dogs are tough, and for some reason, always cold, even

The Stand has burgers, hotdogs and salad (who would order a salad here?) They have a cozy patio with heat lamps and they sell beer by the pitcher. Go on Monday for the cheap hotdogs and specials. It's a fun place for a group or a dinner for two. Also: highly recommend the cheesecake (yes, I did it).

I never thought I would see a place come into LA and compete with Pink's when it comes to hot dogs. Well, the Stand has shown up and put in quite competition with the heavywieght. Though the two places have their differences, the Stand

the blue cheese burger is probably the best burger ever. the fact that all the ingredients are fresh and that the burgers were cooked to order just makes it amazing.

The Stand will remind you of the Daily Grill for good reason, they brought it to you. They have a wide selection of hot dogs, homemade sausages, salads, desserts and beverages. I like the low-fat lemon chicken sausage smothered in

An entry in the Valley's hot dog wars, this is---despite its pedestrian name---the most elaborate yet. You line up at the counter to order---after passing by the sizzling products---but tables decked out in black-and-white checkered vinyl…
