Brian's 24 Restaurant Review

: Located in the heart of the Gaslamp, Brian's 24 offers breakfast, along with affordable American and comfort food all day and night, 365 days a year. Diners flock here for dishes such as potato pancakes, corned beef Benedict, burritos, chicken and waffles, Monte Cristos, tuna melts, meatloaf, country-fried steak and more. Sweet breakfast standouts include s'mores pancakes and chocolate chip hotcakes. Try the tasty hand-dipped shakes and malts, root beer floats and ice cream sundaes. Don't expect a typical diner setting at this family-run restaurant; instead, there's a grand handcrafted mahogany bar (obtained from late actress Joan Crawford's estate), beautiful crystal chandeliers and a tin ceiling.
