This place was quite the experience. Surrounded by the lights and posh buildings around Sunset Place, you wouldn't even notice this little grey building. Its no wonder the locals come here to relax and chug a cold one back without the fru-fru nonsense that goes on around the other places. I was surprised at how dark it was when you get in. In fact, you can barely see in there! But that doesn't stop the regulars from taking a seat at the bar. Who can blame them? This is just the place to get away from the hustle and bustle.
Once you get past the dark bar, there's a fabulous little sun room in the back. It is almost as if the place converts into a charming french cafe at the end of the hall. Yellow paint, floral wallpaper and wooden chairs make for a cozy dining space.
The waitresses try their best to juggle all the orders from the locals. Its actually amazing. You would never think this inconspicuous place was so packed. Sitting next to a table of Jewish grandpa's all eating Ruben sandwiches and French Dips, I knew they couldn't all be wrong. So, I ordered the French Dip and my friend ordered the Ruben.
The sandwiches weren't to die for, but they were good. Especially the Ruben. Just the right touch of greasiness and goodness. Golden crispy fries and delightful laughs from the gramps's table were enough to make Fox's a nice little lunch retreat.
I can't wait to try the bar. Next week maybe. I've heard their martini's are to die for.
Fox's has been around since 1946 and I can definitely see why. Good eats, a laid Back dwelling and fabulous locals make this a great local spot.
