I've been waiting to come here for a while and thought it was just ok. We parked at a neighboring lot and just walked in through a side gate. Wait was not too bad and better than the restroom line. Grabbed some decently priced craft beers while we waited and had super awesome service. Food was just ok though. The Death by Duck fries were really good, though the oil was dripping out the bottom of the tin cup. We got some wings and got half spicy and half honey mustard. For some reason, the spicy really hit me despite or waiter describing it as being a notch below Ktown spicy, and my friends were fine. Wtf, maybe I'm just noob these days. Both flavors were just ok and the quality just a bit better than Buffalo Wild Wings. The steak and Poutine was ok. The gravy tasted bitter and the steak had no flavoring at all and was tough. We've had better Poutine so this was just very meh. I would come here just got light snacks and beer but wouldn't come here for dinner as I was not too impressed with what we got.

After living in Los Angeles for three years, I finally decided to act like a tourist and try this place that everyone raved about from Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. I expected it to be overpriced in value and underwhelming in taste, but I was wrong on both counts. This place understands how to merge taste, texture, and smell into each of the craft foods. I had the Death By Duck, Grilled Cheese (with egg on top), and Three Eyed Raven beer. The service was fast and friendly. My only caution is to be careful where you park.

I came here long ago and gorged myself on many of their dishes, but this latest visit was just for some duck fat fries. And by god are they still amazing. Not a super devotee of the raspberry coulis/ketchup, but the cracklings and the matchstick fries are super on point. Beer's selection has yet to disappoint too. I'll probably drop by whenever I'm in ktown, if only as a precursor or postcursor to any korean food pigouts I have.

If you want to eat gluttonous food... that tastes delicious... come here. They are perfect for fatassery. FOOD: * Death to Duck fries: Duck confit and fries... so good. The fries were a bit salty but the duck was pretty good with it. * Fried Pork chips - salty but they are supposed to be. Crispy but a bit too salty for my taste. * Brussels Sprouts - again salty but pretty good * Mac N Cheese... so much cheese but so thick. You could eat just that and be full. Again... salty. The entire meal was good if it wasn't so salty. SERVICE: Meh... nothing too fancy. They came and did their job. No special treatment or asked us how we're doing. AMBIANCE: Very bar life college hipster scene. PARKING: Valet or on the street... $3 with validation from here OVERALL: It was just Okay. Nothing too spectacular but it would had been better if they just put less salt.

I had high hopes for Beer Belly, but ultimately, it isn't that great. I will say that the beer is tasty, but the duck fat fries (which I had been excited to try for months) tasted like normal fries with a weird fried chicken flavor. Pass. The mac and cheese was better, but only marginally. The food is probably great when you're drunk, but alas, I had to drive afterwards.

Great place but be aware it is fairly small and hard to see right off the street. I am from out of town and was drawn in by TripleD. It definitely lives up to the hype. Great service and amazing food. I had the Duck French Dip, Bacon Fat Fries and the Smores Poptart dessert. They only serve bottled fancy sodas, beer and some wines. The bacon fat fries were amazing with a maple syrup vinaigrette that is to die for. The duck french dip was good but not as blow my mind as I had hoped. It needed a bit more season or flavor but the bread was great and it still tasted good. The Smores fried poptart was great! It had a Reeses syrup on it with icecream. Does not sound all that appealing but it was - a must try!

After seeing this place featured on Diner, Drive-ins, and Dives a couple of years ago, I couldn't wait until I had the chance to try it. I came here for lunch on a Saturday and was seated right away. Having thoroughly yelped stalk the restaurant, I already knew what I wanted to order. I ordered their macaroni & cheese, death by duck fries, and brussel sprouts. Wow. All of these were so tasty. Their macaroni & cheese came in a iron skillet with the cheese perfectly melted on top. A quality that I love about great macaroni & cheese is the amount of stringiness cheese that comes when you take a forkful of the dish. This macaroni & cheese definitely has this quality. The death by duck fries are so delicious. I really enjoyed the duck flavor infused in the fries. The brussel sprouts were my absolute favorite. I don't know how they cooked them, but wow they are worth coming back for. Overall, I really enjoyed every dish I had here and will definitely be coming back.

The staff is very nice. However, duck-fat fries are overrated. Beer selection is good; the taps aren't the cleanest. Most of the clientele are mildly pretentious hipsters/wannabe artists, which if I want that I'll go to the Silverlake area.
