The Smoke House Restaurant Review

: A draw with the Burbank movie studio crowd since 1946, the food at this all-American eatery may not be particularly memorable---except for the legendary garlic bread---but it's still fun to settle into a red leather booth with a steak and stiff martini and party like it’s 1955. Lee and Marti Spencer are the current owners, having taken back the restaurant in 2003 after selling it in 1992. Some of the Smoke House favorites include slow-roasted prime rib, baby-back ribs with baked beans and corned beef and cabbage.
