      Kevin, you got me looking around at Brolly Hut and I guess there was at least one other on Artesia Blvd. and Yukon in either Lawndale or Torrance (whatever the community is called down there). It evidently changed names to Ken's Charbroiled Hamburgers at some point not all that long ago. Then I stumbled across Rod's Char Burger, also on Artesia Blvd. but farther west in Redondo Beach. Rod's has some great reviews and some photos of what appears to be some killer chili cheese fries (along with some unexpectedly good looking grilled chicken) and charbroiled burgers that make me glad I don't live closer or my already doubtful diet would be even more problematic.

      Ken's (formerly Brolly Hut): 3605 Artesia Blvd Torrance, CA 90504

      Rod's Char Burger: 2600 Artesia Blvd Redondo Beach, CA 90278rger:

        The one I noticed was called Brollt Hut in an umbrella-shaped building on Crenshaw and 80th.

    2. The old Brolly Hut on Artesia and Yukon never seemed like it did very well in that location? They used to always complain about the overflow parking coming from customers of the old Back Home in Lahaina (now closed). I'm guessing Steve's on Prairie and 182nd took most of their business? Steve's by far has the better burgers and pastramis and is still there after remodeling.

      1. I went to the Inglewood Brolly Hut about two months ago. Honestly, it was nothing special but wasn't horrific ether. The burger did have a a decent charbroiled taste but that was about it. Also tried a breakfast burrito which wasn't that special. I think there are better options, including some fast food places.

        The other Brolly Hut is on Hawthorne Blvd in Lawndale, close to the intersection of Redondo Beach Blvd. The Inglewood B-Hut has better architecture than the Lawndale location.

        I prefer Tomboy's in Manhattan Beach for my burger/chili fries/patty melt needs. I've also tried Rod's breakfast burrito and was very impressed although again prefer Tomboy's. Both are solid options.

          I agree totally with this. I grew up eating at the inglewood brolly hut. Went back a few years ago to try it and relive old childhood memories. It's nothing special, astroburger is better.
