Best Veggie Burger?

My votes go for

A. Real Food Daily if you get it well done with their cashew cheese, fake bacon, and avocado..yum. Great bread also.

B. Lucky Devil's...special credit for great fries.

  1. You know, I was really excited to try Lucky Devils veggie burger after reading other peoples posts about how great it was-I was a bit disapointed. Too many nuts and beets. Still pretty darn good, though. And still better than 25degrees-I hate veggie burgers that try to taste like meat. The best I have ever had was at Dustys in Silverlake-but about five years ago. I'm sure the menu has changed since then. It was a tad mushy, but I didn't muind it. It was also coated in seasoned bread crumbs and fried-glorious!! I just had the veggie burger at Kitchen24-and it's a little different, but really good. I would call it more of a hummus burger. It needed a tad more seasoning, as it was a bit bland, but I would still recommend it. Also, Astro-Burger does a great Garden Burger (not to be confused with a homeade patty. Anyone know of a place that does falafel burgers???

      Colony Cafe on Pico has one that tastes similar to a falafel. I think it's pan fried.

            A very strong second for Houston's veggie burger. Never had one as good!

          2. Here's a curveball for you.

            Try the veggie burger at Chezz Burger at the Southwest terminal at Burbank Airport.

            It's probably a top 5 veggie burger if you compare it to the rest of the world, but in the world of airport food, it's numero uno.
