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.

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.

Unfortunately, Beer Belly it's another LA over-hyped Gastropub. The food network probably contribute to their popularity, but I don't think it's worthy. The beer was not bad, and the duck fries are definitely delicious. However, the positive points stopped there. The Duck French dip was the biggest disappointment, it tasted like slices of left over roast duck smacked between the buns. My fellow diners ordered the catfish and chips and the buttermilk fried chicken, both failed to impress, but then again, it's not "bad". The fried chicken seems over fried for sure. It's worth a visit for the beer and the duck fat fries, but I wouldn't recommend anything else at Beer Belly. If there is a wait for you, definitely go somewhere else

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.

With a name like beer belly, there is no surprises with the indulgent and gluttonous nature of this place. With a hefty selection of craft beers, the food seems to pair beautifully with waistline-expanding deliciousness. The grilled cheese is no joke, as are the several duck breast overloads, the kimchi meatloaf, and most of the small bites. This isn't for the faint (or weak of heart); you will be overwhelmed with decadent versions of simple foods. Seating outdoors is great and on the weekends expect a bit of crowd, but really, a great place to have a drink off Western in K-town.

Nice gastropub located in the heart of K-town. They have twists on favorites such as duck-fat fries, bacon mac and cheese, and a specialty grilled cheese sandwiches. I do feel for a place called Beer Belly, their selection of beer at any given time is a little limited, and their food seems very fattening. Another great addition to the ambience is the Game Show Network playing on TV while we were there. All the employees and many of the customers were chiming in answers to Family Feud.
