If Truxton's didn't stand for "everything and then some," I'd be amiss. Having opened in July, I've eyed the transformation from vacant corner cinder block to quaint and optimistic second location (the original Truxton's is in Westchester) and have finally matched my vow to stop in.
As you should. And don't procrastinate - Truxton's is a multi-option menu that offers three meals a day plus a full bar of beer, wine, and seasonal cocktails to satisfy any taste wish on the westside. With such an eye-catching variety of appetizers, sandwiches, entrees, pastas, and pizza, the sooner you go, the faster you'll get through you new "Next time I'll get...- list."
Aside from the warm brick walls and attentive, intuitive staff (when I asked for extra aioli I was given two additional to sample), I'm super digging Truxton's because the flavors and combinations are over the top of what you'd expect.

As a gluten-free diner, Rachel went for the Apple Chicken Burger on a GF Foccacia Bun (Grilled Freshly Ground Chicken Mixed with Sautéed Apples & Onions. Topped with Smoked Gouda, Caramelized Onions, Mayonnaise & Onion Sprouts), and said the bun tasted as good as she can remember "the real deal." I chose the Gilly (Caramelized Onions, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Tomato, Shredded Lettuce, Tillamook Cheddar Cheese, Topped with Crispy Onions & Spicy 1001 Dressing) and had a hell of a time trying to wrap my mouth around the medium-rare doublefister.
The garlic-parm fries were crisp and resulted in a dragon-mouth-on-fire type of end result in the way all garlic lovers covet.
Highly recommended (and the list for "next time"):
