Their nutrient-dense dishes are masterfully created by owner and celebrity chef, Ron Russell––alongside his business partner Rebecca Smith, and chefs Jorge and Raul.

Monty's Good Burger

Echo Park, Koreatown, Beverly Grove, & Riverside

If we could describe Monty’s Good Burger in one phrase, it would be “where streetwear culture meets dank vegan food!” The menu of this trendy vegan burger joint features classic burgers, cheeseburgers, fries, tots, and milkshakes that can be customized to the nth degree. One of their most iconic dishes is The Dog Pile, a tray of tots or fries (or 50/50) loaded up with two Impossible burger patties, melted cheese, grilled onions, and all of their sauces. Speaking of sauce, Monty’s sells the sickest merchandise, too! Check out their Instagram for special merch and menu collaborations with Chip Chrome, The Misfits, Pizzaslime, and more.
