04 Oct Eater LA: Top Quality Fast Food Spots in Los Angeles Fall 2017
Every reason why Los Angeles is fast food heaven
By Eater Staff
Los Angeles is where fast food really took off, mainly due to cars, a desire for convenience, and inexpensive ingredients. Thankfully, Angelenos are starting to move past the mega chains like McDonald’s and Jack in the Box in favor of smarter quick-service fare. Of course, the original great fast food restaurant was In-N-Out, which prepared quality burgers using real produce, old school flattop grills, and freshly cut french fries.
Now plenty of small and larger concepts have adopted the model, such as Top Round and even the Korean chain Bibigo. Here now, the top high-quality fast food restaurants in Los Angeles, presented from west to east.

New York’s finest fast food burger has arrived in Los Angeles, with a Glendale and West Holllywood location, plus Hollywood opening in mid-October. Using a smashed burger technique, crinkle cut fries, and hand-made shakes, this roadside style shop makes affordable fare in stylish locales.

Not to be confused with Bibibop, the fast-casual chain that absorbed all the former ShopHouse locations in Los Angeles, Bibigo has long been serving up build-your-own hot stone rice bowls to those looking to get their Korean food fix.
