I visited Rutts Hawaiian Cafe with my family on vacation and we all loved it! Such a friendly waiter, very cheap for LA! And of course the food was tasty too! Highly recommend trying this place out ☺️

I love rutts, especially when they just moved 2 blocks from my home. They have decent food, like homemade, for decent prices. They also have good beer on tap. Been around since the 70's, and still thriving. Tells you something
