Chili Johns is Featured on HBO's Big Love

Who says Burbank doesn't have unique (well, maybe not sophisticated) places to eat? Our very own Chili John's restaurant was featured in last night's episode of HBO's Big Love. CJ's was the scene of a major plot point (Harry Dean Stanton got shot on the sidewalk outside) and it's location stood in for a place named Juniper Creek, Utah. Okay, so comparing a small town in Utah to Burbank is not that far-fetched. For those of you who don't know, Chili John's is a beloved Burbank institution and only serves chili. The restaurant has a very unique horseshoe-shaped counter and, uh, interesting murals on the walls. The chili is terrific and the restaurant has been in business for well over 40 years.

Prices as of early July

As of now (just after July 4th holiday) I see prices softening quite a bit in the middle-class areas of L.A. County, including Burbank. However, asking prices are still very solid in the hot, trendy areas of L.A., including West Hollywood and Silverlake. Will this continue as the summer goes on? Usually, sales REALLY slow after mid-July. Stay tuned to this station.
