As a Burbank resident, I've been hoping for, at the very least, a halfway decent beer bar to come to town. Tony's Dart's Away blew any expectations I had clear into the stratosphere. The place is amazing. Not only is the beer selection superb, but Tony only pours California brew, ensuring that what comes out of the kegs is fresh because it's local. The frankfurter I had was also delicious and the fresh chips are great.
I got a chance to talk with Tony on my visit and he's very down to earth. He took time to talk to me about his philosophy and what he's trying to accomplish with this bar and the one about to open in Echo Park. Cool dude for sure.
Back to the bar, it has a pool table, dart board, a few tv's showing sports, and one of my favorite things, the internet jukebox, allowing me to play some of my favorite hip hop tunes as I enjoy my brew. The place is also chock full of brewing/beer books for those wishing to catch up on the latest in beer.
Overall, this place hits the nail on the head, big time. Quickly becoming a go-to beer spot in L.A.

First, this place is a short bike ride from my apartment. Yip Yip Yippeeee.
How great it is to have a place like this so close by. I go there for lunch, an afternoon beer, dinner, late dinner, late night beers, Laker games - basically any old time and it is realiably very good every time.
I almost gave this place a perfect score but I deducted a fe points for the ordering system. I wish they had table service. Sometimes, especially Fridays it gets so busy that you need to line up to order beer and food. If the line is 2 minutes then ok, but when the line is 20 minutes it makes me not want to stand there at all. Busy bar, i get it.
Great staff and great beer selection and highly under rated food.
Go to Tony's just not on Fridays.

When I moved from Glendale to Long Beach on January 1st, I was sad to leave my family and friends to chase the almighty dollar thinking, it's only an hour away, it's not like I'm moving out of state.
I miss all of them but not nearly as much as I miss Tony's. This was my home away from home. I was back there last night for the first time in 2011 and I am seriously thinking of moving back to LA.
People talk about the beer and the food and games all the time but what makes this place so great is the people. Paige is the manager, she is the best. Always friendly and smiling and brimming with beer knowledge to share or current events to discuss. Keith is one of my favorite bartenders ever but he only works a shift or 2 a week. The owner, Tony, is there a lot of the time and he always takes the time to say hi even though it seems he has a million things going on.
The beer is the best on the area. The food is dangerously delicious. The seats are comfy and the crowd is cool.
I resisted reviewing TDA because I wanted it to be my little secret but the word is out, so no point in hoarding.

A holy place of the valley. Very chill, woodsy atmosphere full of brew books and hip signs. Amazing taps (up to date by the minute on their website). Hard to get stuff, all California beers and vegan food (vegan sausages to die for, and non-vegan sausage available as well). Sweet potato fries. A couple of dart boards, a pool table, 70's music, an IPA lover's dream. Perfect serving temps, great bartenders. Knowledgeable staff, accessible owner. Tasters available. My favorite place to drink. Pints run between 3.50 and 6 bucks.

Tony's is one of those locations that you go to if you know you love IPA's. And really, if you're in California how can you not enjoy a good IPA. That's what we're good at.
The joint has a wide selection of craft beers that you generally won't find in many places in a 10 mile radius. I know if I'm up for Pliny, there's a 90% chance that I will find it here.
The food selection is mainly a variety of different types of hot dogs as well as a good selection of vegan options (their other site Mohawk Bend is more vegan friendly)
They have board games so you can kill time and slip your drink. The place uses proper glassware as well as pours a proper pint. Prices are all around pretty decent.

Wow, what did we we do to deserve this? The new Tony's DA is a dream come true for the residents of Burbank and the surrounding area.
The most remarkable quality of the new Tony's DA is the genuine passion, excitement and enthusiasm the new owner and his staff share for exploration into the complex art of craft brewing, - particulary focusing on a diverse spectrum of unique and quality brews originating from our home state of CA.
In addition to the "earth conscience" efforts to only drink fresh, local beer from CA, the new Tony's DA serves a wide assortment of interesting sausage sandwich combinations (Vegan+regular) as well as a couple of solid, fresh Salad options and a hand-made Orange Cream soda made by a brewery in OC called ??
Overall - a GREAT place to have in town and well worth patronizing on a regular basis.
P.S. Did I mention that the owner has two deluxe dog beds right out front for your dogs to hang out in while you stop in for a beer at your local Burbank beer bar :)

Everything about this little bar is perfect.
they must have over 35 taps but have a strict no bottle policy that is a statement about how environmentally friendly they are and how committed they are to fresh beer. They only sell Cali beer which is fine with me cuz there is so much to choose from here.
The beer is very reasonably priced. I had a Pliny the Elder for $6! I had a pint of Sculpin on cask for $6 also. Racer 5 only $4.50. And they serve real full pints.
The owner, Tony, imagine that, is very passionate about craft beer and he is usually at the bar. I talked to him about his all craft, all draft, all California motto and he totally convinced me that this is a great idea whose time has come.
I go to this bar on a regular basis even though I live about 10 miles away. the beer is always top notch with lots of new stuff always available.
Food is great, gotta try those sweet potato fires, they are insanely good.
This is my all time favorite place to drink a beer and relax with friends.

There is something very nice about a beer menu separated into an IPA page and Not IPA page. The beer at Tony's is always first rate but lately I've been going for the food. I am addicted to the Streetmeat Sausage and the Sweet Potato Fries.
Sculpin is always on tap, need I write more? The beer selection never disappoints and the bartenders know what they're talking about without being snobby or over the top.
Tony's Darts Away has a well deserved reputation as one of the best beer bars in Los Angeles.

I love this place and since I'm new to beer advocate I wish I would have rated it before. There beer selection is what I go there for. Tony does what he wants and it works well for there location. I love the menu, ipa. Not ipa. Simple and efficient and I like it that way. I've also have been to his other location the mowhak bend. Now that place knows how to do it right. I'll review it later.. Now with darts away you can go in there with some friends and choose from the many games they have on shelves,pick hungry hippo, and all the beer books. You can borrow them if they still allow it. I recommend this place to any hopp head and challenge them to try a pint of all there ipa's and be able to walk out of there.

Not only do they have over 30 California beers on tap, they are only $4.50-$6.00 for a real pint. They also do flights and half pints which in nice. The food is awesome, especially the sweet potato fries. They even have vegan food that I could actually swallow.
They have a good mix of tables and bar seats. There's a pool table and a dart board of course and 3 tvs. Not only do they have books you can check out, they have games to play like Connect Four and Trivial Pursuit. Its a good place to have lunch and they allow children up until a certain time. Not only the best bar in Burbank probably my favorite in the San Fernando Valley.
