Brick Burgers is a burger stand that pops up every night in Mobil gas station parking lot at the corner of Nordoff and Balboa. But unlike the other pop-ups in the neighborhood (Hawaiian Hot Chicken) , you won’t have to wait in line for an hour to get your food. There isn’t really a menu to speak of at Brick, you just tell the guy under the tent how many patties you want (they’re thin, so we usually go with at least two), plus whatever toppings sound good, and they’ll grill it up to your exact specifications. It’s a classic American smashburger - not too greasy or filling - and a great late-night option that certainly beats a drive-through.
