The best frenchfries and the most personal service! Even though we had not been in CA for over a year, Sonia remembered us and gave us a hand signed paper plate with our burgers. Mama and Sean are still hard at work in their new location just a few blocks from the original historic Irv's burgers.

Lovely burgers - an institution. Great buns and tasty meat. Fries not so good but burgers make up for it... They're amazing! Let's hope they'll be back soon...

West Hollywood is a bit out of my way, but the lovely Yelp community spoke and I wanted to experience it as well. The service is grade A. Sonia was so welcoming and also entertaining while eating. I got Combo #1 and it was a foodgasm. I'll admit the fries were bland so try substituting for something onion rings. They... More

My co worker and I where in town on business and wanted a quick burger for lunch. This place came up on yelp as good so we tried it. I have to say it is pretty much a dive burger stand. The service is really good, they are very friendly and leave nice notes on your bill. The price is... More

Burgers and fries like no others. Authentic, tasty, greasy, salty. You name it. When you've gotta eat this way, this is the place to do it in Los Angeles.

This is one of those classic little whole in the walls. Well known to anyone who lives in West Hollywood, Irv's is delicious and a great place to step into for a quick bite on a budget.

I was a little skeptical when first walking up but I have to say this was a great meal. The service was excellent. If you are just walking by it is easy to miss but it definitely worth putting on your bucket list when visiting West Hollywood.

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
