Burger Lords makes American burgers of the classic sort: a beef patty covered with melted orange cheese and topped with lettuce, tomato and raw onions on a cushy, white-bread bun. For spread, a simple Thousand Island will do. Fries are not cut from potatoes on-site, but the rest of the operation — its simple setup (a prep area, a grill and a register), its minimal menu (hamburger, cheeseburger, double cheeseburger and vegan burger), its presentation (in a paper-lined box, with fries in a bucket tray) — is reminiscent of In-N-Out (though In-N-Out costs a few dollars less and would never stand for patties so much smaller than the bun).
They’re located in the heart of Chinatown’s Central Plaza at 943 N. Broadway St. Los Angeles, CA 90012 just North of College. One block from the Metro off the Chinatown stop.
