Engine Co. No. 28

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Housed in a beautifully restored 1912 firehouse, Engine Co. No. 28 has been putting out appetite fires since 1989 with classic American dishes inspired by the regional cooking of firehouses across the country.

The menu features a "signature" Meatloaf, New York Steak, Southern-style pan-fried chicken, crab cakes, Cobb salad, and Firehouse chili.

The weekly chef “specials” feature fresh grilled fish such as salmon, sea bass and seasonal vegetables. Daily soups include corn chowder, chicken tortilla lime, tomato basil, broccoli and many other rotating favorites.

The restaurant is reminiscent of the classic grills of San Francisco and New York - mahogany booths, white linen tables, granite bar and original brass fire pole - housed in a restored 1912 Los Angeles firehouse.

Great location! Food and drink wise not so much.  I think it's a good casual find for cheap drinks and something basic but not wow.  I do appreciate how they have a happy hour until 10pm daily which is quite interesting.  I've been for lunch and drinks so not too familiar how they pair up for dinner and such.

It's nice they have a full bar but seating wise, it just seems very dark and claustrophobic.


Great spot for drinks, though I sadly haven't been for food yet.  Unique venue as it's situated in an old fire house; it very much embodies a 20s New York feel.  Casual and quiet, it gives off an upscale vibe.  It's worth wandering in if you're a fan of re-purposed historic buildings and are in need of a beer or cocktail. 


$20 for bottomless, flat, flavorless mimosas and disgusting bloody marys.  We had to keep asking for refills and definitely did not get $20 worth of booze. The bloody marys were horrid and made with Seagrams vodka.  (Just wait for the hangover) This place needs to step up their brunch game.
