Best Veggie Burger you've had?

When I think of veggie burgers, I think of that woody patty you get in the frozen food section. I know there's something better out there in tasty LA. What are your suggestions?

  1. I love the veggie burgers at these places - r+d kitchen, the park, houstons, alcove, good earth, lucky devils

      I second Lucky Devils - I am not a vegetarian and I crave these freshly-made beety wonders. Millies in Silverlake used to have a great one too.

        So I just had the one at Lucky Devils--and while the taste, bun and onions were great, I'm not sure about all the nuts. Too many.

    2. M Cafe De Chaya (2 locations) has a really good one called The Big Macro.

      1. 26 Beach makes an awesome patty, they make it there.

        1. Counter's veggie burger is pretty good. Tasty and not dry or overly chewey. Their huge selection of condiments are a bonus. But the patty is good enough to not need any embellishment.

            I second the Counter, been a veggie for 17+ years and it's my top 5 of all time! FYI the Counter is in Santa Monica near the airport and I think they're openning one in Studio City. Also the Habit does a pretty good one too and they're easier to find.

          2. surprisingly the one at O Burger (in west hollywood) is actually really delicious. and their fries aren't bad either!

              I'm an omnivore but I've had the veggie burger at O Burger and it is really good. Definitely not a "meaty" patty though. O Burger's burger and fries remind me of a good version of what you'd get from a school cafeteria.
