I just gave Astro Burger a 'Recommend' at Citysearch
Drive-through burger joint cures the cravings of carnivores and vegetarians alike. – In Short
The neon Astro sign, clean chrome-and-plastic interior and handwritten wall menu conjure up images of Archie comics gone Hollywood. A vegetarian's fast-food haven, the menu offers an incredible array of meatless meals, from mock chicken-and-beef fajitas to saucy faux-riblets. And meat eaters can dress up their patties any way imaginable, from bacon- and cheese-smothered to Hawaiian-style, with mounds of grilled onions, pineapple and teriyaki. As a side, the crispy, salty steak fries go well with everything.
Awesome veggie menu!!! – If you like Gardenburgers, you HAVE to try their gardenburger deluxe, which comes with avocado (my personal favorite)! They have great burritos, and burgers, and so much else to choose from! Hummus, pizza and even breakfast! And you've got to love the drive-thru option! All reasonably priced!
The best vegetarian fast food, hands down. – Astro Burger has been an LA favourite of mine since long before I moved here. We'd make sure we made it to Astro as many times as possible whenever we were in town and the enthusiasm for it has not died down.
It's very handy if you have vegetarians and meat eaters to accommodate. There's something for everything, and no-one is getting jibbed. It's all good food!
The vegetarian menu is astounding with possibly the best item being the meatless Chick'N Grill. I'm also a fan of the Maui veggie burger with a piece of pineapple in it. The fries are also very fresh tasting and always cooked to perfection.
I would suggest, however that you stay away from the pizza. I ate that once and it was below average. Other than that, you can't go wrong with Astro Burger!
The owner is a vegetarian, which is why I never feel I have to worry about my order getting mixed up there as I'm sure he strictly enforces the importance of getting it right and no contamination. So far, in the last five years I've never had a screw up.
Vegetarians, this ain't the place – Not to be confused with the Astro Burger over on Santa Monica in West Hollywood. This place boasts an impressive veggie menu, that unfortunately doesn't deliver. I pulled in, thinking it was the same chain as the one in W. Hollywood (which makes the BEST veggie burgers), and ordered what was probably about the saddest veggie burger I've ever had. I really was sad when I took my first bite. I did, however, try a hamburger at another time and it was pretty good. But other things I've tried there were sub-par: the breakfast burrito and the chicken burrito aren't the greatest, and neither are the onion rings. So I guess just come here for the hamburgers.
Tasty Hamburger – I ate a hamburger (with extra onions) for the first time tonight at Astro Burger. I liked it.
Astro Burger's hamburgers are a lot better than Apple Pan's. And they're only $2.59.
The Greek Daily Specials are a Must! – I just love this place! As a vegetarian I appreciate the enormous vegetarian selection including even vegennaise (vegetarian mayonnaise) and soy cheese as accompaniments! The daily vegetarian greek specials listed next to the cash register are phenomenal, unique, delicious tasting and a better value (as well as healthier) than the regular menu if you're a big eater like me! The vegennaise goes great with the Greek dishes while the soy cheese is great with the vegie burgers. The greek cookies are fabulous as well! The more adventurous you are the more satisfying the meal is here! Enjoy!
Great Food – This place has the fast food burger in LA, period. The atmosphere is a bit crowded around lunch and there is a bit of a wait, but it's worth it.
yey Veggie! – So nice to have a burger joint that is friendly to veggies! They have lots of options too, including breakfast stuff. yummy!
Great food at a great price – Astros is a corner burger joint across from Paramount. I worked at Paramount for years and I never had a bad meal at Astros. My favorited is their ortega burger with bacon. They have a veggie burger but I never tried it. They have a very wide selection for a burger joint. All the food is good and inexpensive and it takes only about four or five minutes to get your order.
