The appetizers here are pretty good, but the selection of entrees on the dinner menu was limited. The various arcade machines were cool, but I was expecting more of a variety (board games, etc.). A few of the arcade games that I played on the machines had a lag, which was a little disappointing. Overall, I would come back with friends for happy hour to enjoy a few games.
From the food (all delectable), to the service (super friendly), to the free video games in the back (secure the pong early or it will be claimed for the rest of the night), we all really enjoyed our night here, and will be sure to make it back in again. One thing to be aware of before-hand, is that (like many places in LA now) they won't seat a partial party. In a city with such bad traffic, this is an annoyance, especially when you're the first person there, so plan ahead and don't be late, or someone will have to drown their early-bird status at the bar. Our group had & shared: The goat cheese tots (ermegerd), burger sliders, bruschetta, garlic fries, jerked chicken, & hush puppies. All got high scores, and no complaints were voiced. I tasted a little of most of that and liked it all. Parking can be found on the right side-streets & at meters, but valet is avail for $5. Look for the Spaced Invaders lit logo, east of Woodman, on the north side of Ventura
My wife ordered the buffalo burger and about 5 minutes after she ordered it, the manager came to our table and told her that the restaurant was out of bison, but they would replace it with a Kobe burger instead. Since the store was getting ready to close and there was no other alternative, she opted for the substitution. My wife ordered her burger "medium," but her burger came to her well-done! The burger was overcooked and not juicy at all!I than file an online complaint through the Fuddruckers corporate web site, but this Fuddruckers ignored the complaint. I than filed with the Better Business Bureau, The Department of Consumer Affairs, the District Attorney's Office of LA, but all of these complaints went unanswered by the Fuddruckers owner and her staff.Finally, after sending a fax to the Fuddruckers corporate offices, the owner of this location contacts me and tells me to stop harassing her. She also tells her manager to have no contact with me what-so-ever.Now, under the circumstances the majority of places would simply send you an apology letter and invite you to come back and try them out again or at least offer you your money back. This Fuddruckers is so stubborn that they come against the customer and have total disregard for treating the customer with respect.Its a terrible place to be in for a business when they choose to ignore the customer's concerns and in fact challenge them, instead of looking to keep customers. I for one will NEVER visit this Fuddruckers location again with my family, because they have no respect for us and could careless that they ruined my wife's burger and have ignored my many complaints.
