This burger joint is a literal hole in the wall. The burger is definitely very tasty, but I don't know if it is the best in Los Angeles. I think the best thing about the burger year is it is juicy and rich. The basic cheeseburgers with different types of cheese and toppings are about $10, but they have some... More

This was one of the best burgers I've had. Almost too big to eat too, but finished every bit of it. Would definitely go back.

This is literally a hamburger stand in the back of a liquor store. the burger was very good. The fries were a large order. This is not a cheap burger either, but worth the expense. There are a few picnic tables outside by the road. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is good for a fast bite to eat,but... More

If you want a unique burger, this is the place. Tons of options to choose from and always delicious. Fries are big enough to share. No place to sit though, so plan to walk across the street to the park and enjoy your food there.

Everyone else can claim it but the Standing Room owns the title of Best Burger in LA. Their Napoleon burger is nothing short of outrageous right along with their truffle fries.

Yup. A true "hole in the wall"!! This place is quite famous in the south bay, and I finally got there. This is not a place to come if on a diet or restricted menu. The burgers are big, the fries are huge, and all are fantastic! You go inside the liquor store, go to the right, and order from... More

We've just finished our order of a Naked, a Dressed, a Napoleon plus sweet potato fries and parmesan and truffle fries. Beaware that the happy hour $2 off burgers and fries applies only to the Hermosa Beach restaurant, not the Redondo Beach hole in the wall, and that this is not a cheap take away at $54, but here is...

Have been couple times in Standing room on my previous trips to LA, so made a visit this time but wast extremelly satisfied - burger was quite messy, but still good, but the fries were mediocre at the best, didint finished them - just basic fries you can do at home, suggest to stay with the burger only...

Great beers, great food, great service! Isn't that what you want in a restaurant experience? We only had an hour between flights but really made it count by eating here. Would recommend!

Just eat here. It's eclectic and delicious and insane. Tip: call in your order. The waits are often long. Totally worth it. Yes, it's in a liquor store (Redondo location; Hermosa is a full restaurant.). Eat outside or take it home. Or to the beach. You'll be so frickin glad you did. Nom, nom, nom.
