The Best Burgers in LA—All Available for Pickup or Delivery

Need a night off from cooking dinner, but just not feeling ordering in pizza—again? Not to worry. Los Angeles has plenty of burger joints that offer both pick-up and delivery. Of course, if your kid has only ever tried the patties at, say, Island’s or In & Out, then it might be time to broaden your burger repertoire. Read on for our list of LA’s best burgers (including tasty, on-trend smash burgers and Impossible ones, too!).

Easy Street Burgers - E. Hollywood

Get your smash burger fix at Easy Street, where the double burger is all the rage. Sink your teeth into two smashed pure beef patties and American cheese, sandwiched between a Martin's Famous potato roll. Choose your toppings of tangy pickle, chopped onions, ketchup, mustard, and Easy Street's special wild sauce. For vegetarians, there's a Beyond Meat option made with Follow Your Heart Vegan Cheese.

Covid Update: Open for takeout and delivery only, Fri.-Sat., 4p.m.-9p.m.

The Win-Dow - Venice

Another smash burger spot, The Win-Dow now has two locations in Venice. In addition to their signature burger, the menu also features a fried chicken sandwich, along with vegetarian options including a grain bowl, kale salad and the plant-based Beauty Burger. Added bonus? The newest spot on the Venice Boardwalk has boasts an ice cream menu that's sure to win over little ones.

Cassell’s Hamburgers - Multiple locations

Since 1948, Cassell’s Hamburgers has been serving LA families premium hamburgers that are ground daily in-house using the original grinder, cooked on the original crossfire broiler and are made into patties via the original press. Cassell’s original location is in Koreatown’s historic Hotel Normandie and features a classic '50s breakfast menu, a variety of milkshakes and malts, a coffee bar, homemade pies and a fully stocked bar. (They also have a location downtown and at LAX.) The burgers are outstanding, but if littles are in the mood for something different, we highly recommend the DFC Fried Chicken Sando—yum!

Covid Update: While the downtown location is currently closed, you can order for pickup and delivery from the Koreatown and Rancho Park location. There's also a take-home DIY Burger Kit, so you can cook up your own patties for the fam.

Bill’s Hamburgers - Van Nuys

A Valley institution since 1965, Bill’s Hamburgers stand in Van Nuys serves up some of the tastiest burgers, with 93-year-old Bill still working the counter. There's nothing fancy-shmancy here—no wagyu, no truffles, no lettuce sourced from sustainable farms. Just good old-fashioned beef patties (with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and ketchup), on buns cooked to absolute juicy perfection, plus a bag of chips on the side (Bill’s doesn’t do fries). 

Good to Know: Bill's is only open from Tues.-Fri. until 4 p.m., and it's cash only.

Covid Update: Open for outdoor ordering and curbside pickup; masks are required and patrons must stand 6 feet apart.

Monty's Good Burger - Multiple Locations

Just as all beef patties are not the same, so too are plant-based Impossible patties. (Preparation is key!) If you've tried one of these environmentally friendly meatless burgers in the past and thought, meh, then you definitely haven't been to Monty's. The all-vegan spot (with multiple locations) serves up perfectly cooked Impossible burgers with vegan cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, pickles and house sauce, all on a fresh-made potato bun. It's so good that no one will ask, "Where's the beef?" Of course, no burger joint is complete without shakes and fries and Monty's delivers on that front too, offering fries (and tater tots), plus dairy-free shakes that are as good as the real thing—maybe better. 

Covid Update: Open for takeout only. Contactless checkout and no-touch hand sanitizing stations available. 

Multiple locations (West Hollywood, Echo Park & Koreatown)
