The L.A. burger scene continues to get more crowded, as Austin legend Hopdoddy Burger Bar creeps into El Segundo. The casual sit-down spot already enjoys an upcoming location in nearby Newport Beach, but the latest outpost at new shopping center The Point makes things much closer to home.
The approachable concept is all about sustainability, bringing hormone and antibiotic-free beef to their menus. Beyond the beef and bun (the latter is made in-house, naturally), Hopdoddy also plays with a selection of salads, desserts, and Texas favorites like chili con queso. After all, L.A. could always use more queso. Craft beer and a full bar prop up the drinks side.
As for the layout, Hopdoddy works a minimalist feel to maximum pleasure, with sleek black booths, tall lime green chairs, and plenty of communal seating outside on the patio. The rest of the room is rather spare, with white subway tile and hanging Edison bulbs. Light wood tables and a few hanging pictures of country music stars round out the room.
Hopdoddy El Seguno opens at The Point on August 17, while their upcoming Playa Vista outlet should arrive by September.
