Damon’s Steak House has been a favorite of ours for many years. Best cheap steak in LA, plus Mai Tais so great you don’t care if the steaks are cheap. It’s a thatched-hut tiki village in there, and a spot not to be missed.
It changed ownership a couple of years ago now, and we’ve only been there once since. (Not because it was bad, just because we got burned out on it.)
We went tonight and I’m happy to report we had a more than fine experience.
are gone, because the old ones just wore away.
Appetizers – they have some! We got the garlic parm chips and they were pretty good.
Desserts – they have this too now! We didn’t get any but the selection looked passable.
Big Puffer Fish is gone – passed on to that saltwater aquarium in the sky. He was over 15 years old! The aquarium lives on with new fish.
Clean! – the old place had gotten pretty damn dusty over the 67 years they’ve been in business. The original owners took the filthy monkeys with them, and you know, that’s just fine.
Big parking lot behind, plus street parking, but parking can still be dramatic. Reservations for parties of 6 or more (except Sat when it’s 8).
