Chains in LA that I should try

When I go to NYC, like to do my annual White Castle slider run, Nathans, etc.

Going to LA this month, looking to trying In N Out for the first time since I read about it so much on this board.

Have tried Chipotle, Cheesecake Factory and Wolfgang Puck Cafe.

What other chains close to Disneyland or Universal Studio should I try when I am in LA?

      1. "What other chains close to Disneyland or Universal Studio should I try when I am in LA?"

        I recommend Poquito Mas, a very small but quite popular Mexican chain that has (what I believe is) its original branch right near Universal Studios.

        Also, if your hometown hasn't already been included in its huge national expansion, you should probably give California Pizza Kitchen a try. It has locations all over the city.

        Poquito Mas
        3701 Cahuenga Blvd Ste 1, Studio City, CA 91604

        1. You already have In-N-Out covered......Here's the secret menu:


          I may get lambasted for these, but living in the Northern New Jersey, these are not available and I think Del Taco is much better than Taco Bell. I have not been to Wahoo's Fish Tacos, but I have been to Rubio's.

          1. King Taco

            King Taco
            2904 N Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90031
