The West Hollywood location is the original outpost of this mini-chain, giving it a history that adds to the boisterous atmosphere. You’ll find a crowd of sports bros and ladies all sidling up to the bar, enjoying one of 60 TVs (complete with sports packages galore), and imbibing in an array of beer choices. There’s plenty to look at off-screen, too: they’ve perfected the tacky-on-purpose look, with everything from license plates to sports memorabilia hanging from the walls.

You know exactly what you're getting with this place, and that is absolutely fine. It's a sports bar and nothing more or less. Come here with friends to watch football, grab beers, and eat some bar food. They have countless TVs and on Sunday mornings during the NFL season they show pretty much every game. I went this weekend & had a great morning watching football and grabbing a bite with a few friends. 


Okay it's a very basic diner, the waitresses appear to have emerged directly from central casting but their blubbery cream cheese french toast is insane! I have never eaten anything like it. A truly American experience. But the table was sticky and the aforementioned waitresses were too interested in their own conversation than they were in my service... 

When I first moved to L.A., Barney's Beanery was my favorite place to go to because it's not pretentious at all and yet still has an L.A. vibe. You never know who you're going to see, whether you're there on a Sunday watching football or a Friday night. The drinks are pretty cheap too and the food isn't bad! I usually get Nacho Mama's Nachos. Yum.
