Plan check refers to the process of getting building plans approved, a nod, as Plan Check The Restaurant explains, to the Building and Safety Department next door. That Plan Check takes a city building rather than its location—on the northern tip of Sawtelle—as its reference point is telling. Indeed, rather than curry and ramen, you have salty beer nuts, fried chicken served with sweet yam preserves, and burgers. Great, perfectly-sized burgers like the signature Plan Check Burger acknowledges its Little Osaka neighborhood with a tender, juicy Akaushi red Wagyu beef patty nestled between a "crunch bun"—the crunch comes courtesy of panko—and the Blueprint Burger slathered with a roasted garlic steak sauce beautifully plays off the smokiness of blue cheese. If you're ranking the city's burgers the way you're ranking your fantasy football team, Plan Check is your Arian Foster: a definite first-round pick.

Add ketchup leather to your list of unique dining experiences/things to try. While not the most outstanding menu item that your tastebuds have ever come across, Plan Check is undoubtedly a solid place for burgers & beer.

This place is great for a casual date, night out with friends, or even a family-friendly dinner with kids. Highlights: the Plan Check Burger (ketchup leather is a must-try), Southern Fry sandwich (that spicy green pimento cheese is killer), and the four pickle plate. The menu might seem standard on the surface, but everything has a unique Plan Check twist.

Plan check makes great burgers. They are full of top-notch ingredients and the flavors go together flawlessly. Even the ketchup is better at Plan Check. Order fries for the table and get the sweet potato fries too especially if you have a group. Don't forget to check out the great beer list!


O man. Where do I begin- ketchup leather! This is ain't your moma's burger!! This is an adult burger to be savored!

I went here with a friend and got street parking immediately. Only street parking folks. It's right on the corner of Sawtelle and Nebraska, so it's easy to find. The drinks we had were ok, but a bit overpriced for the small cup they serve it in. However, we got the Chefs Favorite Burger (juicy and flavorful, just so good) and the Southern Fry (crunchy and a big piece of chicken, but worth it). For dessert, we got the Cruller Donuts (it really does taste like a churro shaped into a donut and the ice cream makes it a great combo). I'll come back for the food, not the cocktails. Maybe a beer instead. #TOTastemaker
