If you are looking for a good hamburger in Downtown Los Angeles, you can’t go wrong with Burger Lords, but if you are closer to Staples Center than Chinatown, you need to pop into the Taste Food Hall at Fig at 7th and check out Five Guys. It’s a national chain with restaurants across the country. Their burgers are awesome, prepared and served like they were made at a backyard barbecue. All the ingredients are fresh, and according to their website nothing is ever frozen. And get this… their burgers come with free unlimited toppings. A cheeseburger will cost you $7.69 but you can add mayo, ketchup, mustard, relish, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, jalapeno peppers, green peppers, A.1. Steak Sauce, BBQ sauce and hot sauce… all at no additional price. If you do the math, you can order a burger 250,000 possible ways at Five Guys.
For those of you on a diet… you can go to Five Guys and look at the delicious burgers then go next door to Salata and get a salad.
