A few months back I finally got a chance to check out Burgerlords in Downtown LA. Burgerlords is a no-frills burger joint in Chinatown with a simple menu, including vegan burgers. They only have a walk-up window where you order your food, but they do have a few picnic tables where you can sit. Plus, it's fun to wander around the center it is located in, which features Asian architecture and a Bruce Lee statue!
Burgerlords only serves burgers and fries, plus a few bottled sodas and water. Their simple burger menu and walk-up window are two reasons they've been compared to In-N-Out. The main draw for me, of course, was the promise of a vegan In-N-Out style burger! I used to love In-N-Out back in my college days before I went vegan, so I was stoked to have the same experience again at Burgerlords.

As you can see from the menu above, I basically had two choices - a vegan burger or a vegan cheeseburger. Their vegan burger is made fresh in-house every day with a blend of grains and veggies and served with lettuce, tomato, onion, and vegan Thousand Island sauce (I'm pretty sure they use Follow Your Heart Thousand Island dressing, and it's amazing!). Their vegan cheeseburger comes with the addition of melted slices of Follow Your Heart vegan cheese. I decided to splurge and go for the vegan cheeseburger combo, which comes with their shoestring fries and a Mexican Coca-Cola. The vegan cheeseburger is $6.50, plus an additional $3 for the drink and fries, so $9.50 total.

Burgerlords' vegan burger and fries are definitely worth a visit - I just wish they were closer so I could eat their fries everyday (maybe it's a good thing I don't have daily access to them, ha!).
