Welcome to a L.A. landmark... the site of the Burger That Ate L.A.

This burger joint looks like something out of a movie set.

The Burger That Ate L.A. was located on the corner of Melrose and Stanley in Los Angeles. The giant burger was set next to a model of city hall.

Unfortunately, this programmatic place was shut down in the mid-1990's and a Starbuck's replaced it.

Remember passing by an A-frame sign in orangish colors? Well, chances are, it was a Tastee. There are still a few remaining, though derivatives of this chain are much more common these days.

The Brolly Hut features an interesting looking building that looks half carousel and half umbrella. With the button umbrella mushrooms outside and featured marquee, the Brolly is another of America's roadside delights. Oh and this place serves food too!

Since the word "brolly" is slang for umbrella, it' no wonder the whole place is umbrella themed.

Hungry and looking for a place to eat in the Beaumont area. Can't vouch for the food, but the sign points to Donald's Burgers.

Beeps is a great old circa 1956 hamburger stand in Van Nuys that's always busy because it's cool and the food's pretty good!
