After a four-year hiatus, Irv's Burgers made a triumphant return in 2022, a half-block from its original location on Historic Route 66. Owner Sonia Hong - she took over the beloved burger stand in 2000 and endeared herself to locals with her delightful "Just for You" doodles - brought on Off the Menu founder Lawrence Longo and chef Armen Piskoulian (Oui Melrose) to update the menu and expand to a second location on La Brea.
Irv's Original Roadside Single Burger features a freshly ground quarter-pound chuck and brisket patty, American cheese, tomato, lettuce, onions, pickles and Irv's sauce on a butter-toasted Irv’s bun. Build your own burger with the Just for You, which is simply dressed with pickles, cheese and Irv's sauce on a sesame seed bun. Customize the burger to your heart's content - options include extra patties, grilled onions, pastrami, bacon, chili, fried egg, Hatch chiles and more.
For an extra $4, you can make any burger "Brady's Way" (includes cheese sauce and fries) and Irv's will donate $1 to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
