Smashburger aficionados might already know about For the Win. This casual mini-chain already has three other locations across LA, specializing in stacked smash burgers. For a gooey cheeseburger with crispy, lacy edges, their stall at GCM should be at the top of your priority list. The meat is beefy and tastes freshly ground, with a melted cheese-to-potato bun ratio that’s perfectly balanced. We usually order the double stack, which is surprisingly light, with jalapeños and bacon, plus their slightly spicy fry sauce. They always taste best straight off the grill, so grab a stool at their L-shaped bar counter and eat your order as soon as possible.
