it is for sure. chatted briefly with the parking attended, the doors are locked, oh, well, shit happens.

i think one of it's big problems was there just wasn't enough people visiting. the location was not the greatest. Even if chowhunds support a joint, it's just not enough. Other people have to too. Additionally, it seems like most of the hounds who did visit, did so sporadically and not that often, due probably because most did not live in the immediate area.

      amber's at balboa and burbank, for the much heralded Broasted Chicken. and of course broasted potatoe wedges too. And for dessert, of course, donuts. But that's not what you came for.

          Noooooo! Not Amber's! NOT AMBER'S!

          This just plain sucks. Now where am I supposed to get my broasted chicken and donuts in the same place?
