I’m not sure if Astro Burger was my very first meal in LA, but it was one of the first.
Being a mere blocks from my West Hollywood apartment, Astro Burger felt my presence on many occasions. Often times, without my recollection.
I always order the same thing. Cheeseburger and Onion Rings. They have the best O-Rings in LA. Hands down.
It’s supposed to be a 50’s throwback diner but the mini jukeboxes next to each table are untouched. It’s always deathly silent inside. Almost depressing.
But I rarely eat there. I take my sh*t TO-GO! I don’t need to hear the horrific sounds of my own chewing.
Astro’s burgers are a thin patty with shredded lettuce and thousand island. Old school. Just how I like it.
They also have incredible chocolate milkshakes.
Even when I’m moved far away from Weho, Astro Burger will always have a little place in my overweight heart.
