Astroburger, melrose or santa monica??

  1. Years ago used to go to the one in Inglewood. Very tasty Charbroiled burgers from what i remember

    1. Santa Monica Blvd, for sure. Little comparison, IMHO. Not really sure if they're owned by the same people: Anyone?

      Love the breakast burrito, the patty melt, even the gyro.

      1. I don't know about the ownership, but the menus seem similar. The Astro Burger in Gardena has a decent veggie burger also - coincidence?
        The links show a one letter difference in spelling - significant?

        EDIT - the web site in the Melrose location Place link does not mention other locations.

        Astro Burgers
        1510 W Rosecrans Ave, Gardena, CA 90249

        Astro Burger
        5601 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038

        Astro Burgers
        507 N La Brea Ave, Inglewood, CA 90302

        Astro Burger
        7475 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046

        1. The food's pretty much the same between the Santa Monica and Melrose locations.
          I prefer the Santa Monica one since it always is a bit more entertaining in the people watching category no matter what time of day/night it is.
          I'm a total meat eater but I love the veggie burger and the onion rings are only rivaled by Rick's Drive Thru on Fletcher /Riverside.

          1. So is there a difference between the santa monica and melrose location? I love love love the veggie burger at the santa monica location but im going to be by the melrose location tonight so I was going to go but if its not as good as the santa monica location I dont wanna waste my time. please someone help save me from disappointment. haha thanks

              Food, pretty much the same...don't worry about's all good cuz it's bad for you...even the veggie burger...those onion rings make it all worth it.

              1. re: tatertotsrock

                However, I have noticed how the bag of onion rings has shrunk over the years.
