It's "Time to Eat," or so the sign says at this road front burger joint. Despite its better than bankers hours, Dave's Burgers seems to cater to a regular crowd. Dave's has been around since the 1950's.

Lucky Boy Hamburgers features an old time looking rooftop sign that's a delight to see.

Not sure if the sign still lights up these days.


UPDATE 02/07 : Lucky Boy Hamburgers was torn down about 1 1/2 years ago. Now a McDonald's is on that location of Otis and Firestone. Many thanks to Timothy G. Shubin for update. 02-07

Check out the site of the original Tommy's Burger Stand off Rampart in Los Angeles. Grab a few double cheeseburgers for a snack at any time, especially since Tommy's is open 24 hours.

Tommy's on Rampart first established itself at this location in 1946 and still features just a stand up eating area, while newer locations are dine-in.

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!
