Anyone been to the Buffalo Fire Department Burger Restaurant in Torrance?

  • 5

So, the chef/owner of The Depot in Torrance, opened up what he called "an adult" burger joint, called BFD... and according to their website, it stands for the Buffalo Fire Dept, Burgers-Fries-Drinks, or Big F*#&@# Deal.

Has anyone been? I saw a brief "story" about it on the local Torrance public access news show (please, no comments, it was a slow night on TV). Chef Shafer has put together some relatively good eats at his first restaurant.

Are the BFD at BFD a BFD? Or, is it just gimmick to charge 8-18 bucks for a burger?

        Glad you enjoyed my post, Bulavinaka. ;)

        Kevin, I guess I should make my way down there finally to BFD. I've been to the Depot a few times and while I haven't had a bad meal there, I did feel the menu was a bit dated...as was the plating. I suppose as long as he's profitable, there is no need to change the menu.

      2. They sometimes have coupons on restaurant.com. I've been meaning to try them.

        1. The time I've been the service was great and the food good..no complaints.
          Nothing wrong about it's location which was a Aioli (sp) before and accross the street is the Depot which I like also and have been going there for years.

          Of course down the street is La Capillia Mexican restaurant and By Brazil, which changed owners a several of years ago and Onami on carson st for AYCE seafood.
