Best burgers DOWNTOWN... not Pete's

Hi there,

Looking for the top burgers downtown (especially ones that can be delivered) besides Pete's.

    I don't think it can be delivered, but I'd vote for Morton's.

      Thanks for the quick reply, Molly! Is that the place on 7th & Grand?

        Nope. It's at 7th and Fig. And I think the burger might only be served at lunch, but oh boy...

            It can be a zoo there at lunch (especially now that it's summer associate recruting season) so make sure to make a reservation so you don't end up eating at the horrible 7th and Fig food court!

      Ditto molly's recommendation for Morton's ... pure sirloin greatness and it is only available at lunch.

      Another good option is the burger at the Redwood Bar & Grill, comes on a brioche bun with a steak knife stuck through the middle to hold the thing together. Very, very good burger. www.theredwoodbar.com

        Redwood is so close to me. Yay! Thanks.

          Lucky you. Redwood's burger is the winner so far in my Greater LA Midscale Burger Crawl, and cheaper than about half of the others. Fine, fine fries, too...and for an alternative, excellent if somewhat eccentric fish & chips.
