Rick's "Best Food in L.A."
I've been going to the Rick's on the corner of Riverside Drive and Fletcher adjacent to Silverlake for many years, and have always been amused by their "Best Food in L.A." sign. So audacious. Now clearly it's not the BEST food in L.A., but I do have a soft spot for their cheeseburgers, onion rings and fried zucchini. Are there any other guiltless Rick's-goers on Chowhound?
Well, at least Rick is being modest.
In Venice Beach you'll find Charly Temmel's self intitulated "Best Ice Cream in the World".
Agree....not the BEST but Ricks is a good value for breakfast.
I guess there's no truth in advertising when it comes to that statement and "World Famous".
Reminds me....last night I went to Fosselman's last night and perused the numerous accolades they've received. Don't get me wrong and not stirring up a debate, I like Fosselman's. Over the years I think they've cut down on the butterfat content and maybe more overrun(more air).
Rick's is one of my guilty pleasures as well... a very under-rated cheeseburger and the fries are great and they give you the largest portions in town. i also love the 'voted best food in LA" sign of theirs... i mean, really... just preposterous, but you gotta love their nerve...
i'm also a fan of another under-rated cheeseburger at a place called Jo's in santa monica...
Not a bad truck stop style breakfast. IMO a good pastrami sandwich for lunch. Awful chili, and some other less than average things though.
