Red Lion Tavern
I ate there last night.
Normally I eat the fish and chips. Very well done, and from what I understand the fish is not frozen and battered per order. I love order the shweinbraghten. I tried the German Scampi once, on a whim, and that was real bad.
Last night, I was in the mood for a burger with my Optimator, and football game.
I noticed a 1/3 of a pound hamburger under the specials menu. I thought "why not?"
It was huge and it was great!!! It was also only like 7 bucks!!!
The food, the beer and the game made for a great night.
Veal Sausage dinner.
Usually, I just order a side of mashed potatos and gravy, a side of peas (yes, those creepy, soggy grey, canned kind) and a beer...and have a few bites from someone's saugage platter...good stuff.
I like Red Lion for their outside beer garden. Their food is moderate at best. However, I do like the mug of split pea soup with a frankfurter sticking out of it. Weird concept but tasty nevertheless.
They do have a good burger. Also the turkey sand is very good roasted turkey. I get it with saurkraut. I like all of the traditional german food there and always get some potato pancakes.
I like the Red Lion a lot. They have good beer, and the food is decent. I should go there more often. :)
In my world, heaven equals sitting down with a group of friends at Red Lion and downing beer and leberwurst. The place is often a bit loud for me, but what a wonderful treat to get such hearty food in health-conscious Los Angeles! Mmmm.
