10 Must-Try Plant-Based Burger Joints in Los Angeles

These plant-based burger joints in Los Angeles are 100% vegan and 110% delicious! While it’s great that so many restaurants offer vegan-friendly options, it’s nice to take a break from modifying the heck out of menu items. At these all-vegan burger spots, you’ll go from saying, “Can I have the veggie burger without cheese or mayo?” to “Extra vegan ranch, double cheese, and add a milkshake for dessert!”

Monty’s Good Burger

Echo Park, Koreatown, Beverly Grove, & Riverside

Monty’s Good Burger is just about every vegan’s go-to burger joint in LA! Their menu may seem simple at first glance—single or double patty, fries or tots on the side, and your choice of sauce. In actuality, their burgers, sides, shakes, and drinks are customizable to the nth degree! Their most popular secret menu item is the Dog Pile, a serving of fries topped in two Impossible burger patties, two slices of cheese, and all five of their saliva-inducing sauces. Whatever odd burger-centric craving you’re experiencing, Monty’s can help. Just ask nicely!

Burgerlords

Chinatown & Highland Park

This retro-looking burger spot recently went all-vegan and we couldn’t be happier! Their menu hosts a vast array of handhelds—burgers, cheeseburgers, chili cheeseburgers, buffalo ranch tofu burgers, and more. Their signature patties are made fresh every day using a custom 30-ingredient blend of grains, vegetables, and seasonings. It’s worth the hype!

NOMOO

Melrose

Whether you’re a skeptic of the plant-based lifestyle or have been vegan for 15 years, the burgers from NOMOO are sure to please your taste buds! Your choice of a single or double Impossible patty is decked out in vegan American cheese, pickles, tomatoes, butter lettuce, and NOMOO sauce and sandwiched between a beautifully baked brioche bun. Their Signature Fries & Greens is made up of half fries and half greens (Miso Caesar or Superfood Slaw). Or you can lighten up your side and just order greens! What about dessert? They’ve got vegan ice cream sandwiches, cookies, and even a Blue Majik Milkshake!

Nice Guys Vegan

Costa Mesa

Nice Guys Vegan is more than just a plant-based burger joint. It’s the home of Orange County’s first and only 100% vegan charbroiled burgers! Their menu showcases an insane amount of burger variations, from classics to creative new flavor combinations. If you think pineapple on pizza is good, how about pineapple on a burger? Yep, that’s right! Nice Guys Vegan’s Mainlander burger comes with pineapple, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, and Teriyaki sauce. Oh, and did we mention they serve vegan mozzarella sticks? Sold!

VBurger

Long Beach

Most burger joints offer single- and double-patty options, but what about triple or quadruple? At VBurger, anything is possible! The 4×4 burger contains FOUR Impossible or Beyond patties layered with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and house dressing. Feeling adventurous? “Work Your Burger” to add chili, mac and cheese, scrambled eggs, or sausage. If that sounds a bit too overwhelming, fear not! VBurger makes classic burgers too.
