      I recall some "first time poster" mentioned the place a while back and I asked if it was the place almost across the street from the La Brea Umami Burger joint and in the old NY bbq place (also the old Greece's bbq location). That thread disappeared so I'm assuming the mods somehow figured the post was a "plant" to encourage business. I come down La Brea sometimes after going to hear music, but it closes too early for me to get there when it's open. I went to the old place on Pico during it's short lifespan and nice as those people's hard to say their burger was much superior to a lot of burger joints.

        I like to to think it's more of a Westside answer to the 'hood burger.

          But yeah, I remember that ;post by a first-time poster, And until a few days ago, I don't believe there were even any posts about it on Yelp even.

            First yelp review was from Mid October:

            There are several more here:

            That NYC BBQ/Greece location is just wretched. And it's kitty corner from Umami? Drove by a few days ago, it looked dead...

              Yeah, old Greece's space. I really liked Greece's. Though Greece's was not as good as the heavy hitters when it comes to BBQ.

                RIP Greece's. I always liked that place and the dude. Wasn't it another burger place after NY BBQ?

                  I too liked Greece's, and it sure was a lot more convenient than anything better when I lived in Hancock Park back in the 1990s.

                  1. re: blackbookali

                    After NY BBQ, it was a burger place. Not Mo Better Burger, but another burger place. It was OK.

        2. Greece's! now that's a name i haven't heard in a very long time. used to live right up the street :(

            I never ate at Greece's. Anybody ever eat at their previous location about a block south of the intersection of Washington Blvd. and La Brea? That place was there a long time.

          2. Someone go please and report back with pictures. :)

              Will do.

              Well, maybe not the pictures.

            2. Where is this place? I drove by and didn't see it. Obviously, I do not know where Greece's was.

                It's tucked in the back corner of the shopping mall. And They have no visible sign.

              2. I had the chili cheese burger and fries. I enjoyed it. Won't get the burger with chili again, but it was a very good burger to me. They were also very nice. Spent around $10.
