The pantry is whack as hell. Super expensive, long ass waiting line and the food taste average at best. Might as well go to Denny's or i-hop which are right by there.

Fatburger is the best burger in LA... I don't do turkey burgers though so I'm pretty sure Deep will outlive me... Hold things down when I'm gone Deep! ;)

I take hot wings seriously also and I was way disappointed when I went to Buffalo Wild Wings for the first time two months ago. The food there was downright awful!

If you're in Vegas there is a spot called Miller's Alehouse in Town Square that has phenomenal boneless buffalo chicken strips.

As far as chicken wings go they can't be those steroided out wings. They must be small, slightly crispy and flavored just right. If it looks more like a chicken leg than a chicken wing it's probably no good.

Lol...I was taking down burgers like that back in the day Ace! But eventually I got smarter about my well being. You will too one day.

Heck back in the day me and my boys use to throw down on this burger called the Colossal burger....two patties, pastrami, chili and cheese with the rest of the works ! That was fuel before we hit the hardwood!

haha, you're probably not a fan of hooters wings.

and i really like buffalo wild wings fries, simple and delicious. wings aren't anything special. im actually making wings right now, i make a mean wing if i may say so myself.

The BWW by my work is also awful, but I think that place is more about atmosphere than food.

I don't for the traditional flavor buffalo wings. So to me buffalo wild wings is ok because of the variety. Haha Plus I have to go all the time due to my fiancé being addicted to it.

We got this chain called Smashburger in Houston, which is pretty nice, god options for vegetarians like me :)

The best part is the fries though, they make fries with garlic and olive oil.

They have good fries because they put sugar on them.

Speaking of "back in the day" I have a little annecdote for you I may have shared before but hopefully not...

Back in 1985ish.. May have been '86. I was still in high school in Santa Monica and one night was out with some buddies driving down Wilshire blvd in Brentwood heading towards SM when my buddy Clayton looked over and said "hey that's Magic in that brown Mercedes". We looked over and sure enough it was Magic. We were at Wilshire and San V heading West. We rolled down the window and got him to roll down the passenger window and talk for a few seconds before the light changed, unfortunately he had no extra tickets on him :(, and off he went. We Fatburger on Wilshire and 23rd st. stayed open late and we were all starved so we headed to our fave burger joint. When we got there Magic was seated waiting for his order. Not sure how he beat us because we drove like maniacs but I digress... We got our orders in and sat down. After a few minutes in walked this gorgeous model looking blonde and she takes a seat next to Magic... Must have been nice to be Magic back in the 80's..

Oh and some of you might not know this but he went on to be part owner of the Fathurger chain. The man knows a good burger when he tastes one... He knows a beautiful girl too!! ;)

fatburger is good, i like in n out more though, their food tastes much more fresh. idk ive only had five guys twice and i thought it blew.

but i mean if youre coming to LA theres like WAY better places to eat than fast food joints. it just depends what part of LA youre going to be staying in or be around.

OT but I've been waiting for 2 years for Vapiano to open here in LA

I hope they get it done this year bc both the atmosphere and food is fantastic (at least in europe, havent checked out the US franchises)
