Fred 62 is a great late night diner doling out delicious, juicy burgers that're perfect after a long night out.
There's one place, and one place only, to get chicken and waffles in southern California: Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles. Founded by a Harlem native on a mission to bring straight and simple soul food to LA, Roscoe's serves up miraculous plates of golden-hued fried chicken and crispy waffles. The menu is, of course, full of comfort combos like gravy-smothered chicken with biscuits and eggs-any-way breakfasts. The chain has multiple locations across the greater LA area, but the Hollywood one is in the center of it all.
This American gastropub's doling out awesome comfort dishes, including their mac and cheese, salmon pizza, and French toast. Cozy up with any of said dishes, a cold brew, and sigh that it's 70-degrees out in January.
Beachwood's Long Beach location is perfect for relaxing after catching some surf -- get a few brews, an indulgent entree (mac and cheese, without a doubt), and kick back. Beachwood specializes in BBQ fare in a laid back, diner-style setting. Quaint midcentury modern touches take the decor one step farther and go perfectly with the "so good it must be homemade" plates.

This bakery & specialty food purveyor serves up deliciously cozy and comforting meals, like hearty mac and cheese -- that are guaranteed to fill you up. If you're more in the nibbling mood, though, sample their market side dishes, like baby field greens with dried cranberries and Chinese chicken salad.
Baby Blues's a meat temple with a mahogany bar, weathered walls, a mounted Black Angus head, and an open grill line. BB BBQ is servin’ up award-winning smoked meats and distinctive DTLA sauces. The menu features an array of Southern-inspired fixings like baby back ribs, beef brisket and pulled pork served either a la carte, as a sandwich, or plattered with two sides (sauteed okra, mashed sweet potato, stewed tomatoes, etc). Stop in for music and cocktails— BB has collaborated with the popular drinkery Crossing. It’s dinner and a show, done the American way. Check out BB’s sister sites in Venice Beach, San Fran, and (far, far away in) Philly.
