Hungry? If you are looking for a good family Restaurant and haven’t already experienced the Tallyrand you are in for a treat. Recently, I had the pleasure of eating here and it wasn‘t the first time I have lunched here. The food is always delightful, fresh and delicious.

The family owned Restaurant has been in business for approximately fifty-four years.The owners, Al Thomas an his wife Delores, have created a wonderful family dining venture for everyone, seniors adore them and have shown their appreciation as repeat customers over the years.

Al sadly has passed away; Delores still comes into to eat several times a week. Tallyrand is now operated by their daughter, Karen, and her husband Mark.

I especially want to call your attention to their long time waitress, “Marty,” serving the Burbank community for sixteen years.  Marty has mentioned to me about how her bosses have all kinds of servers to wait on everyone. I think their success in business longevity is probably due partly to employing a variety of help. And Marty is a standout server.

She is the tall, fun blonde, with the cheery smile.  Marty feels her customers are her family. If she can put a few bucks back into their pockets by helping to suggest affordable choices and give them a great dining experience, she has done her job, she told me.  Also, she said:  “Customers can eat anywhere. If they are happy and satisfied, they will continue to come back”.

Oh, and Marty, knows the menu. She has her own special way of telling you what is offered and any specials you may not know of.

So check out the Tallyrand for outstanding food and service.

    Janet did a bang-up job in her review.

    Karen & Mark continue the comfortable consistent pattern set by last generation.

    She even set the record straight when some started the vicious rumor last year that a sale was eminent.

    Now, if they could somehow coax Lee of Burbank-on-Parade Fame out of retirement.

    You have to attend a Library Board meeting to gaze upon her charms.
