Restaurant Review: Burgerlords in Los Angeles, CA

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.

I went to Burgerlords on a Saturday afternoon - it wasn't too busy when I went, I think mostly because it was a little drizzly that day. Parking is either metered street parking or in paid lots in the area. I luckily got street parking close to Burgerlords, but keep in mind parking may be an issue if you come during a busier time.

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.

The burger was pretty darn tasty, and I loved the uniqueness of the house-made patty. The cheese added some deliciously gooey texture and taste, and the buns were light and airy. The only thing I missed in this cheeseburger was grilled onions! That would have made it perfect! The fries, though, they were all-around amazing! Wayyyy better than In-N-Out fries, they were crispy and salty and I could have eaten a bucketful!

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!).
