Looking For Pot Roast
The only version I've bought here was the pot-roasted brisket at Clifton's Cafeteria downtown. It was so good it'd almost be worth the parking hassle and wading through the much-too-lively street crowds - and if you ever go there on some sort of historical/anthropological field trip, I recommend that as your choice. I make a damn good pot roast myself, but these guys had me beat by a mile.
I"m usually disappointed by pot roast... too much of a home made memory kind of thing. When I"m hungry for pot roast, I get the Belgian Beef Stew at The Kitchen in Silverlake. Just good meat and sauce. I don't think it has veggies in it. I get it with a side of their great fries and that satisfies my pot roast craving.
I've never had it there so how it tastes is a ?, but the $12.75 early bird special (it's a "complete" dinner & comes with a glass of wine) at the Golden Bull in Santa Monica Canyon might be the best value without going to a chain:
In comparison, I would assume Jar's would definately taste better; however:
$25 - Pot Roast
$11 - Salad (cheapest).
$8 - Fries
$8 - Glass of wine (guessing).
$5 - Cup of Coffee (guessing).
$57 - before T & T ~ OR After T & T = $72.80 versus $16.25 or 4.5 times more $$$'s !!
