A fast food-style joint on La Brea from the brothers behind Badmaash, Burgers 99 serves - you guessed it - burgers. But unlike some other new burger spots in town, these are burgers we’d go out of our way for. The classic cheeseburger ($6 for a single, $9 for a double) is good - it involves Thousand Island dressing made with cumin, peppers, and coriander - but our favorite is the American. It’s their take on a Quarter Pounder, and it’s much-improved on the inspiration. The fries aren’t fast food-style, but they are thick, crispy, and perfect for dipping in one of their milkshakes - or an off-menu orange soda float. There’s also a semi-secret back patio where you can spread out and scarf it all down.
