LA Weekly's Description

The Stand is a friendly patio restaurant tacked onto an Encino office building, with excellent, crunchy fries, a subspecialty of chili-cheese knishes, and a hot-dog menu that includes Boston dogs, Jersey dogs, New York-style street dogs with those tomatoey onions, and something called the Big Blue Dog, the name of which probably refers to the handful of crumbled blue cheese that serves as garnish rather than the conservative Democratic caucus, Paul Bunyan's pooch or the playful mystery-solving canine beloved of 3-year-olds. There is also an unorthodox Chicago dog laced with plenty of celery salt that manages to be perfectly pleasant to eat. Cub fans, I am sure, hate the thing.
