This local fast food institution inspires a nearly rabid passion in its fans, who like the multicultural flavors and are grateful for one of the first veggie options from a burger joint in LA. According to Cosmos Kapantzos, the reserved but friendly owner of the Hollywood location, it was Astro Burger that introduced Los Angeles to the Gardenburger back in 1986 (the same year he went vegetarian), and it's been on the menu ever since. Offered plain and with cheese, the most interesting option may be The Greek: Served gyro-style with a deliciously tangy feta, sweet onions, tomatoes and parsley wrapped in a scrumptious pita, it offers comfort while keeping each bite interesting.
