Back in 2008 (and in action) with a show spot...sort of

730 S. Broadway
Los Angeles, CA 90014
(213) 622-7496

CASH ONLY (as if that wasn't obvious)

First things first, last month I had a dilemma arise that put the site on temporary pause. Shown below is the outcome. One 2008 Honda Fit just like we wanted!

After 2 weeks from the accident occurring, we were blessed with a large down payment from God. I don't mean like a church donated, I mean in two weeks time money came into our possession from means that were extraordinary. Good times.

On to business as usual. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas time and New Year's. Mine was wonderful and memorable for all the right reasons. Shortly after the accident I was still stuck with the unfortunate task of catching Andrew Bird at the Orpheum and Bjork at the Nokia Live except without our own vehicle (thank you to all the people that let us borrow their cars over that period). Needless to say, we go to the shows and were pleasantly surprised by this local burger spot called "Julio's Burger's" just up the street from the Orpheum.

Now I'm not gonna tell you that the burger was transcendent, but I will say that I went back shortly after the first time we went the night of the Andrew Bird show. The place is small with only counter space inside and plenty of Mexican food being made, but I think that's one of the great tricks of this burger. It doesn't taste like it, but it's savory flavors I am quite sure came from all the Mexican flavor from the grill getting infused into the patty.

As you can plainly see it's nothing to write home about but at $1.90 it really hits the spot for that pre-show bite to eat. Just a griddle toasted bun with shredded lettuce and mayo. No magic to be seen, just the stars aligning right for the griddle that is making this burger up.

Refills: Nope, but at 75 cents/can, that's not too shabby.

Papa Cristo's is pretty bomb and cheap too. Not super close to you but worth it!
2771 W Pico Blvd

or a little bit closer is Sofi's Greek at 8030 W 3rd St which is really nice and a great place to bring friends for a nice time out. Let me know where you go!
