Justice for Champs – You can really only rate a place by going there yourself. Champs has been around for 25 years. It is as good as ever. The staff have worked there for years. Its a great place and loaded with characher. The prices are more than reasonable. Just compare them to some of the modern places who charge way more for domestic beers than they do. So in response to the mean spirited people who said crappy stuff about the staff. Your mean. Its also kind of a coincidence that the bad postings were posted around same time. And local new business competators were also mentioned and recommended at Champs expense (bad business, mean spirited). There is a big piece of pie out there and enough for everyone. Successful business people know this. So if the culprits are indeed competitors, or even their friends, remember, carma is a b----. And if your not, give Champs another shot.
But back to Champs itself. It is beer and wine only. The staff are great and friendly (remember, we all have bad days sometimes). It is typically a neighborhood bar were (like Cheers) everyone knows your name. The food is mostly hamburgers, fries, some sandwiches. It is a small kitchen and does not even try to compete with big establisments. During football season it gets really busy and crazy sometimes. But you can't beat the buzz at Champs when your team is winning. It has all flat screen TV's. 18 in total. They show all the games on Sunday. The prices on Sunday are a little higher, but still nothing compared to big corporate places (those direct TV football packages are not free). Monday Night football prices are the same as every day of the week. You can't get a domestic draft beer in those places for $3.50 and pitchers are an even better deal. So make your own judgement and try Champs for yourself.
This place is ok for a sports bar – Relaxed, clean and service is fine. Had no problem with the servers, they were ok. The beer is good and they were willing to change the channels. Talked to some of the guys in there, they know their sports. Good place to hang if you like to talk sports and drink beer. It's ok for LA.
Beauty is sometimes nothing more than a smile – Never will I return to this place. I hate the whole LA scene but as much as I hate that, I also dislike this side of the spectrum at Champs. The servers are not friendly and slow. The customers are overweight and not attractive. Nascar is on the tv!! enough said. They also have some other car racing thing, where they race around on a dirt race thingy on tv. My date lost big points by bringing me here. He did though look more attractive in comparison to all the other customers. The place was dirty. The waitresses barely acknowledged us and were unfriendly. Best way to describe it is you are warped thru time the moment you walk in the door to some hick bar in Arkansas. If I wanted that, I would move to Arkansas. Ladies, no cute guys at all!! Actually, you might already know this because I didn't see another female in their besides me. Being pleasant by the staff could have made up for soo much. When every other bar is hiring smartly attractive, friendly, high energy staff. This place does the absolute opposite. If anyone can recommend a good sportsbar, with clean tables, clean floors and a friendly staff in the valley, please inform me. Oh! with cute Guys too please!!
Bar food that can't be beat – We ordered the double cheeseburger, turkey melt, and turkey burger. All were outrageously good bar food. Our sides were onion rings, fries, and potato salad. Fries and rings were homemade and great. Salad was bulk food and gross. But its a bar so who cares, I shouldn't be ordering potato salad at a bar.
Goodtimes had by ALL !!!!!!!!!!! – I've been going here for Monday Night Football for years, the owner (a real character) does this awesome Sports Trivia Show at the Halftime where you can win a FREE beer, very fun, everybody gets into it. Cheap beer (beer/wine only), good food, great service (a mom & pop kind of pub), pool tables, darts and plenty of TVs. A fun local bar. Goodtimes had by all!!!!
Burbank's biggest and most popular sports bar. – In Short
Sports is the name of the game here. Those in the mood to compete can challenge friends to a game of pool, darts, foosball or shuffleboard. Surfboards dangling from the ceiling evoke a beach vibe, but the mounted deer heads will mingle in a Midwest feel. There are enough stools and comfy tables for everyone to relax, and that's what folks come to do. Guys and gals come dressed in T-shirts, jeans, sneakers and baseball caps.
Be careful when you order beer from the tap – Last time I visited the place, I ordered a pitcher of Bass. Instead I got a pitcher of Sam Adams. Since I have been drinking both of them for a while, the difference in taste was very clear. When I told the waitress about it, she insisted it was Bass from a freshly opened keg. So be careful when you order beer from the tap.
Buffalo wings were awesome. Turkey melt was soggy and did not taste good.
Overall, a good place to go after work. Or to watch sprts (2 big screen TVs)
Surprise Surprise – Not much to look at from the outside, CHAMPS is a true "Neighborhood Bar". Even if you are a first-timer, you feel right at home here.
Cheap drink, good food, tough-love service... And EVERY COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAME YOU WANT!!!!!
Seriously, I have been in CA for nearly three years now and this is most comorting, non-pretentious pub I have found. If fact, if you are looking to be ultracool and trendy, please don't come. This is a serious pub, for serious game-watching, serious drinking and serious good times.
Champs not nessecarily a winner... – Champs used to be a great bar in Burbank. Used to be is the operative term here. Within the past few years the management, and the staff have been really rude to the customers. The food is ok, if you like basic bar fare. The burgers are mediocre. And, that is one of the few featured items on the menu! Your best bet if you want to go to a fun sports bar in Burbank is to check out Tin Horn Flats, at Magnolia just past Buena Vista in Burbank. They know how to treat their customers, and they serve great food at affordable prices.
