Here’s the real Burbank studio commissary, a landmark where movers, shakers, and locals go for good, inexpensive steaks and prime rib and the best garlic cheese bread in creation. There are also heaping platters of ribs and chicken and some fine music in the bar.

For budding Frank Sinatras or Doris Days, the Smoke House
(4420 W. Lakeside Dr., Burbank, 818-845-3731) provides a fitting introduction to the classic Hollywood good life. Kids can opt for an entrée of top sirloin or prime rib or a serving of fried chicken and fries so generous that it could feed a family of four. The same bartenders who prepare Mom’s gin fizz will concoct an eight-ounce Roy Rogers or a virgin piña colada that underage patrons can sip while listening to the smooth stylings of Morris Wade or Irene Cathaway, who often perform in the adjacent lounge.
