Best Burgers in Los Angeles

My favorite burger in LA has to be the Apple Pan. I've tried them all - my partner is a recent immigrant and huge American hamburger fan - and the burgers that stand out are the ones that are not overly garnished with gourmet filler. Father's Office, is of course, perhaps the best in the gourmet category. The Apple Pan's business is burgers. They are always consistent, inexpensive, and fresh. The waiters have been making burgers practically their whole lives! and are so focused on burger making they barely register your existence. I prefer the Steak burger; my partner prefers the Hickory burger. Both have their special apple relish, which is not as sweet as it sounds. They also have a great follow up of various freshly made pies. MMM!

Zelo's Pizza (review+pics)

I love Zelo's Pizza! We live in Echo Park and will make the longish drive out to Arcadia for the daily specials and especially the vegetarian dishes. Pizza in LA is disappointing at the moment, so the drive to Zelo's is very much worth it! And they have great music and a fantastic beer selection to boot. Better than Abbot's Pizza Company which is hard to beat, imo.

Elf Cafe in Echo Park - So Tiny and Cute!

I found this restaurant to be overpriced and pretentious. The host/owner is very rude to the customers. While the food is usually good, the atmosphere is too trendy and kind of hostile for a supposedly mellow vegetarian restaurant.
