Local Favorite: Story Tavern
We stumbled upon Story Tavern about two months ago for the first time for an impromptu date night. I found it on Yelp based on something else we were doing in that area and decided to give it a try since I just recently moved to the Burbank hood. We arrived a little after 6, and found convenient free parking in a lot just behind the building. The place was pretty quiet, which was nice, and we had a chance to chat with the bartender and take a look around once seated. We've been back a few times since and were pleasantly surprised that they decorate the place for both Halloween and Christmas! I always love restaurants that take the time to decorate. We both ordered beers/ciders off the Happy Hour menu (Happy Hour deals are available all day, every day - yes, you read that right!) For our mains, we opted for mac n' cheese based dishes, so I ordered the Mac Attack burger and my fiancé got the Spicy Jalapeno mac n' cheese. Both were great, with good flavor, and hearty portions.
I love that they also offer studio and Burbank resident discounts - super generous, and encourages us residents to support local businesses! Highly recommend if you're in the area. Great casual vibe.
