>Ahhh an LA institution! You either love it or hate it and well, I LOVE IT! I love what it stands for, I love the simplicity of it, I love the speed, the efficiency and mostly, the nostalgia, although, I haven’t quite gained the nostalgia of it yet, but hopefully, in the years to come, it will hold a place in my heart like it does the friend who brought me here the very first time! The menu is simple, five to six items, drinks and dessert. Most people go for the hickory burger — it is what it is — a burger oozing with hickory flavors. You get lettuce, tomato, mayo and your burger is wrapped in paper — no plates here. You don’t even get utensils unless you’ve ordered the apple of banana cream pie and everything is paper. Your plates for fries are made from recycled cardboard paper and boy, these fries are some of the best I’ve ever had! They remain crispy from beginning to end. If you’re looking for service, well, they’re definitely speedy but they’re not chatty, nor are they friendly. They’re not rude per se, just not gushy, which is fine by me! If you’ve never been, I suggest do it at least once! It’s quite the experience!
