If you go, get the following:

ABC burger ... avocado, teriyaki sauce and cheese hamburger.

Curry fries ... crispy fries slathered with curry sauce (ask for the sauce on the side if you aren't a quick eater cuz the fries will get soggy)

Word to the wise, the ABC burger is a knife and fork endeavor. It is much too sloppy and gooey to be eaten with simple hands and fingers alone. Bib is also recommended.

I also sometimes get my ABC burger with grilled onions, but when I do, more often than not, I end up with really bad heartburn ... so be duly warned.

    Good call on the burgers. Forget the teriyaki chicken....its always burnt around the edges and burnt teriyaki anything tastes bad.

        I like the mac salad and the teri when it is not burnt...the beef is little too much like steak-umms...i used to love those...as a kid ofcourse.

        LOL! I go to the one in Azusa across from APU occasionally since it is down the street from my office. I usually get the teri breast bowl with extra veggies when I want to think I am being healthy! I like there burgers, but have never tried the ABC...... hmmmm.

          The curry chips sound really good. Is this place just a burger joint? I'll check out the link. I've never seen it.

          Okay, I take this back. I think I have driven by this place. I always thought it was located in San Marino, though.

            It's across the street from San Marino proper.

            I was just there last night for the usual comfy food dinner-curry chicken plate with mac and potato salad. It's usually good for two meals cuz it's really big.

            I'll have to try the ABC burger soon!

              I always have to get the curry sauce as a dip, no soggy fries for me. And to rantsnravesnreviews, I should probably just search, but I assume you go to Chicken and Ribs next door? I need to find out how long that place has been there, it's a trip.

                I have never been to the Chicken and Ribs place. I really like Canyon City BBQ also in town, and can't imagine it could ever compete!
