My friend, Amazing Amy, is so nice that she actually picked me up in front of the Los Angeles Superior Court in Van Nuys on Wednesday. I was picked to be Juror #6 on an expedited trial. What that means is that in a civil
jury trial only 3/4 of the eight jurors (6) must agree on the verdict. There is no right to appeal and each side has 3 hours to present their case. We got a lunch break from 12-1:30 each day (I'm kind of liking this). So Amy and I decided go to have a burger
at Billy's Grill . The owner is super nice and has quite the exotic burger menu for a tiny place Van Nuys Boulevard. Prices are very reasonable and it's old school service all the way. For lunch we ordered Billy's Deluxe Burger ($4.25) with lettuce, tomato,
onions, 1000 island dressing, and mayo on a white sesame bun. Pickles and other condiments are up in the front. Onion rings ($3.75) were very light and crisp and French Fries ($2.25) were perfectly cooked. Billy's Exotic Burgers blew me away- a good choice for
you adventurous eaters. Try an Ostrich burger ($7.35), Venison burger ($8.25), Ahi Tuna burger ($8.95), Buffalo burger ($7.50), or a Lamb burger ($7.50) for something very different! As I said, sitting on a jury shouldn't be a total loss! Billy's
Grill 5162 Van Nuys Blvd. Sherman Oaks. (818) 783-6317. Hours: M-F 11:00 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Saturday 11:00 a.m.-7p.m. Closed Sunday.
