Met friends for a late lunch. Burgers were great. My daughter had Mac and cheese balls and they were fine...similar to other spots. Milkshake was really good. Had attentive service even though they were very full. Menu seems extensive but we stuck with diner classics.

We were unfamiliar with this area of Hollywood/Los Feliz, but Thanksgiving Day required a long visit to a nearby hospital and there was no time to plan a Thanksgiving dinner. So we drove around the neighborhood and noticed that Fred62 was open and that they had a Thanksgiving Special posted in their windows. We knew immediately that we wanted to... More

I googled places to eat in the area I was staying, this place came up and o realised I'd walked past it before. On my last night in LA I had a Sloppy Joe burger and a pint of IPA. Incredible food and huge portions. Definitely with the $! The waitress was lovely and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming.... More

Way convenient for casual eats before a show at the greek. Service was way slow even after we said we were going up the hill for a concert. Waitress had a bit of a poor attitude and a way long wait to place our order and a much longer wait for her to pick up the check...The place only had... More

The waitress was rude. Maybe their food could have tasted better if we weren't having a terrible experience. Never coming back

Basically just a diner. The food was okay. Nothing special. Quick and courteous service. They hype up their burgers but they are very average.

Great healthy diner food and awesome root beer floats and shakes (espresso, peanut butter ... or banana chocolate...). Sit at the counter. Enjoy.

When you want somewhere to eat in a strange town and the clock's ticking, you throw the dice and hope for the best. This may have made Fred 62 seem better in my memory than it might actually be. The fragility of memory notwithstanding it was simply a great find. The food, hippie salad, was fresh, appealing and altogether a... More

My husband read about this place on one of his many travel sites. It is near Griffith Park and was on our way to the Observatory. The place is a retro style diner - but not in the loud 50s colors you are used to. Everything truly seems to be authentic. The food, however, was anything but retro. The salads... More

This little diner style RESTURANT is in Los Vilas section of Hollywood and has a great, affordable ($10) breakfast. The "egg in the hole" was definitely my favorite, make sure you sit outside as the paramount studio is down the block and you never know who you might see. On this morning we saw jerry Seinfeld shooting a video directly... More
