A fun place, but I'm not sure it's worth all the hype. I came here during the soft launch when Bobby Flay and all the other head honchos were wandering around the restaurant, and the service was quick, attentive and friendly. I got the LA burger, which was delicious. Juicy burger topped with avocado = one of the best things ever. I came again about a week later to join my friend who had already been waiting in line for about an hour. There was only 1 cashier working, and she wasn't exactly trying to hustle things along. This time I got the Santa Fe burger, which was ok but didn't leave quite the same impact as the LA burger. Waiters were few and far between, and it was hard to catch their attention. However they were still very pleasant, and overall, it was a good night. If you haven't had a chance to go yet, I would recommend waiting until the lines die down, because the food isn't worth the wait. I mean, it's definitely good... but it's also $7.50, so it really ought to be. I was also slightly peeved that there were so few people working. For a restaurant that is so new, I didn't expect the quality of service to drop off so quickly.

This place feeds my soul and my need to shake it down. Seriously sick beats, a funky friendly crowd and people like Sean C who actually have heart and soul can be found here. BRC folks are also known to pop in on occasion. If you like techno, house or even acidic poppy house ... venture on over to the dark corner of the city. You will see the light. (And your hips and feet move in ways you never thought possible.)

I was at the Great American for the first time this past weekend to see Nada Surf and I was very impressed with the venue. Great open space, cool wood floors and old school decor. The bar was a little akward to get to, but they were fast with the drinks and I never had to wait in line longer than a minute.
