I was here 8 months ago and really enjoyed the food. So, I'm back in town and stopped in. Once again the food is good. (turkey, bacon, avocado sandwiche) Jessica behind the bar is a bit sarcastic and fun. GREAT service.

I stop by the Red Car whenever I am in Torrance. An interesting menu, great beers brewed on site and a welcoming staff. What's not to like? I love the chicken diablo wrap, but the burgers are good too.
