If your expectations are unreasonable, they won't be met. On the other hand, if you're old enough, Twain's will remind you what it was like to eat in one of these diners when they were almost-new; the food is exactly as it should be. I'll let you decide if that's good or not. I love it.

Twain's is one of those ubiquitous Los Angeles fixtures, boldly keeping it's corner, stalwart and anachronistic. You'll find yourself here after the bars close, sober enough to read the menu but drunk enough to order something you'll certainly regret tomorrow.
The waitstaff is a collection of greasy spoon stereotypes, characters that have most likely inspired many a studio city screenwriter to pen a memorable scene.
The food is passable, a small step up from the finest of fast food establishment, but not really 'out-for-lunch' good.
Twains features a 24 hour breakfast menu that tastes a little better than the chain-eateries like denny's and Ihop, an interesting list of ways to present chopped meat, and a 'dinner menu' that's not to be taken seriously.
I recommend sticking with the basics, breakfasts and burgers, but after last call, you'll find yourself adventuring in to far greasier territory.

This Landmark used to be my treat to myself every time i had an audition in the valley. I would come here after & it was wonderful. That was in 97-99. Went here today w/ my husband, hoping to have a nice cool salad in the Blazing heat this memorial day. You know that nice feeling of walking into an air-conditioned restaurant and sitting down to order? it was Stagnant hot. Two customers; a scary biker dude & a crusty old man. My husband ordered a coke. The Crackhead Waitress comes back & says""i'm sorry we don't have coke, only diet & sprite."" she had a tick & kept cocking her head to the side .could not see trying to eat in that hot miserable place so we left. How could the Googie preservation society let this happen?
