Found The Standing Room via word of mouth. They were all correct! The burgers have been amazing, and today I went for the Grilled Chicken Sandwich - also AMAZING! They also serve Sweet Potato fries that were fantastic!

This is not your average burger joint. The menu has so many unique types of burgers and toppings, many are asian inspired. The quality of the burgers is so good. It's location kind of inside of a liquor store, a small little hole in the wall. It has some outside bench seating. Highly recommend coming here, some of the burgers... More

Simply put, the best burgers in the South Bay!! Worth taking the time to visit. It is a little, hole in the wall place that just sells good burgers. No frills, just good food.

Gourmet burgers cooked to order in the back of a liquor store... possibly the best burgers I have ever tasted, and the fries ar the best. Your MD will likely recommend against eating the more often than once a month - or once a year, but the burgers are truly amazing and can be highly recommended.

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.
