Nice Little Place, Good Food!

What's with places you drive by a ton of times and think to yourself, "I will never go in there" only to find out you've been missing out on a neighborhood gem? I feel like this has been happening to me a bit lately so now I'm going to every hole in the wall joint I can find!

With that said, Hudson House. Growing up in the South Bay and living in Los Angeles my whole life I've probably driven past this place a million times. I'll be honest, I didn't know it was there and I always thought to was a rundown dive bar. In fact it probably was at one point and now it's all nice. Anyways, I ended up at this fine establishment this past weekend only to find out I was wrong all along. The second I walked in I was blown away at how nice it was inside. It was small but it worked. I could see there being an issue if it was crowded, but I was there on a Friday night and was able to find a place to sit within a few minute. 

They have a pretty good menu of drinks as well as a long list of beers, Racer 5 included! Being that they served food and everyone we spoke with said the food was great we decided to try it out. So what's better than Beer Battered Cauliflower Fritters? I've had these before at Sophie's Place in Redondo and they were okay, but Hudson House can pull them off. Looking around the steak looked really good and they have a Pretzel Burger that made my mouth watter just looking at it. 

My only downside to this place is the size, but you can get past it once you have a seat, and the way they fill their drinks to the top with ice. As long as you're sticking to beer you'll be fine. 
Nice Little Place, Good Food! Nice Little Place, Good Food! Nice Little Place, Good Food! Nice Little Place, Good Food!

I used to drive by this place all the time when I lived in Hermosa. I had always heard good things about it (except that the drinks weren't as strong as my friends like, I guess that has to do with the full cup of ice). I love the pics that you included because I had had my doubts as well.
