BLT Restaurants Owned Go Burger Coming to Hollywood

I am pleased to announce that I saw a sign on the corner of Sunset and Vine announcing the upcoming opening of BLT Burgers.

This is a necessary addition to the neighborhood, as you would currently need to walk 100 feet east to get a burger at either Magnolia or the Bowery. Or you might be forced to cross the street and go to Café Was or Hungry Cat… or the Waffle. So in that intersection, this will only be the 6th place you can get a burger.

But, you say, the other places are not NAMED “Burgers.” Ahhh, you are right. For that, you would need to go a block north to Molly’s Burgers, or another block to Sandy’s Burgers. You may also go a block west to Umami Burgers, or a block north of that to Juicy Burgers.

But that seems like a dearth of places to get a burger, you say. Aren’t there any others within, say a half mile? Well, yes there are:

Big Wangs
The Blue Palms Brewhouse
Citizen Smith
Jack in the Box

So this will only be the 18th place within a half mile to get a burger; and only the fifth in the same half mile to have “Burgers” in its name. And most importantly, this will be the first one at the exact corner of Sunset and Vine.

So next time we go to the ArcLight, we can reflect on the many burger choices we have, including the NEW burger place: BLT Burgers.

The Hungry Cat
1535 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA 90028

Citizen Smith
1600 N. Cahuenga Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028

Big Wangs
1562 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

6372 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028

      I'll give the burgers and shakes a go but their draft and bottled beers list is awful!

          1. re: wienermobile

            I have been to the LV location twice and found the burger to be just average. Everything was just average from the meat, "BLT" sauce, bun, and fries. I ordered the "BLT" burger which consists of bacon, lettuce, tomato and their famous "BLT" sauce and found it just okay. The meat lacked flavor and the fries were just ordinary. The "BLT" sauce was disgusting, tasted like that relish you get at Bob's Big Boy. The did however use a nice thick cut bacon.

            Definitely will not go back there.
            Here is a pic I snapped of the burger and fries.

      1. I've been to the one in NYC a couple times; it's good. Not out-of-this-world amazing, but good for sure.

        1. So I don't have to drive out to LAS to get a Laurent Tourondel burger!?! Sign me up! While I didn't care for their shakes (too sweet & thick), I *loved* their RW rosemary & garlic skinny fries & burgers.

          1. Agreed. So glad to see they are thinking "outside of the bun."

            1. too bad over half of those spots listed have horrible burgers. we need to thin the herd. for the record, I enjoy Bowery's burger.
