While NYC holds a LIT torch as the foodie destination, in recent years Los Angeles has come seriously close to catching up. In fact, it probably holds equal foodie destination acclaim at this point. Both cities are always seeing hot new restaurant openings, but oftentimes those comes with some steep dollar signs. If you're looking to eat well for less, we've got you covered in NYC (thanks to our stealth guide), but we figured it was about time we started rounding up our fave West Coast cheap eats.
Los Angeles is a sunny, bustling, yet laid back land where the most superb of food trends can shine on a dime (we're talking In-N-Out Burger superstar status here) — because why worry about sitting down to eat when the weather is just so fine for grabbing and going? From taco trucks to legendary burger outposts, destination diners, and more, the City of Angels has it all (plus some).
So scroll on if you're looking to get your gourmet grub fix without a major fee.
