This place looks sketchy, but it has solid burgers and onion rings. Also horchata which I appreciate. Don't expect anything fancy, but for the money you'll be happy. Crinkle cut fries if that's your thing too.

I'm not that picky. If the food can hold me until the next meal, I'm fine with it. Place is in it's own theme, and the food is average I guess. It is all similar to me. So I think 3 stars is fair enough. For now.

They stay open to 3am and always seem to be on point. This place is packed after 2pm so they are doing something right.

The burgers are great and the onion rings. They also have veggie burgers and hot dogs so you cannot miss.

Great location, great atmosphere, great service, and best of all GREAT food! I've been going to this local restaurant for years and it's never left me dissatisfied. I've tried nearly everything on the menu and my favorites have to be the bacon avocado cheeseburger, the pastrami burger, and their quesadillas (Chicken or steak is fine by me!). Really though, the quesadillas consist of fresh avocado slices, fresh pico de gallo and freshly chopped chicken. Their prices can be a bit steep but for the amount of food you're getting they're well suited. Seriously though, the quesadillas are about the size of my arm (fingers to elbow) and are PACKED with all the aforementioned fresh ingredients stated above. Really, just writing about it right now is making my mouth salivate. If you're in the area and you haven't tried this fantastic West Hollywood treasure yet, I implore you to go. It's a-must-eat!

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

I've warmed up to this place considerably. I used to think it was overpriced, but soon realized that if you order the right thing, the food can be quite good. It is expensive, and if you're not careful you could spend more than $10 for glorified fast food, but many of the dishes are so large that you can easily split between two people and walk away full.

The onion rings and fried zucchini are homemade, crisp, delicious, and also splittable between two people. Other hits on the menu are any of the burgers (usually run about 1/4 pound) , chicken quesadilla, french fries, chocolate shake, club sandwich, and bean burrito. However, Astro Burger has what I consider to be the BEST BREAKFAST you can get at a fast food restaurant. The breakfast burrito is legendary... at least a pound and a half of bacon, cheese, potatoes, eggs, and salsa. The egg muffin sandwiches are also stellar. The menu is quite large, and some items do suffer as a result. I was pretty unhappy with the pastrami sandwich which was greasy, fatty, and rubbery. I was also disappointed by the fried chicken dinner (scrawny chicken pieces with too much breading), the gyro (clearly factory produced and reheated in the restaurant), and the grilled chicken sandwich (too dry).

Cons: Can be expensive if not careful or splitting dishes. Gyro, pastrami, grilled chicken.

The venue, which looks like a mid-20th century diner, actually serves decent juicy burgers and succulent fries. There?s salads and chicken sandwiches on the menu for those looking for slightly lighter fare, but either way, come hungry. The food at this place will fill you up good!

My daughter and I love to go to this Astro Burger after school and eat "Crabbie Patties" together. We don't eat beef so their garden burgers are great and help me avoid a trip to McDonalds!

Trust me , I've had every vegan and vegetarian thing on the menu.. I finally have to say , "no more."

Astro Burger is, hands down, the best fast food restaurant I have ever been to. I like the Melrose and Gower location better than the Santa Monica one, though: it's less crowded, it's closer to my house, and they have a much bigger variety of vegetarian and Greek items. Take note that they only accept cash, but there is an ATM on the premises. And it's not a gourmet restaurant: it IS fast food. However, there are no combo meals and no dollar menu, so you'll likely pay a bit more than at your average burger drive-thru (around $10 per person for a burger, side and drink). Unlike In-n-Out, which does one thing well, and one thing only, Astroburger has just about anything you could ask for. As a vegetarian, my favorite item is the Gardenburger Delux, topped with cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo and avocado, which is always fresh and ripe. Yes, they have soy cheese and mayo if you want it! The Gardenburger Greek, Gardenburger Santa Fe, veggie chicken fajita, and veggie ham and cheese are also amazing. The even have veggie chili cheese fries, which are out of this world! And don't even get me started on the dolmas (stuffed grape leaves). They're some of the best I've had, period. Try this place! You won't be disappointed.

LISTEN TO A REGULAR, not single time visitors. I have been to Astro at all times of the day, and the food is consistently good. I have seen a vast variety of people, from celebrities to clubgoers to families...it is one of the most inviting places I have ever been to. But the crowd isn't what attracts me to Astro, the food is. Astro has some of the best quality fast food I have ever tasted. Their burgers and steak quesadillas (HUGE!) are amazing, their homemade ranch is to die for and it compliments their already GREAT onion rings and fried zucchini perfectly. My favorite item for years has been a close tie between the BACON AVOCADO CHEESEBURGER and the PASTRAMI BURGER. I often go with my vegeterian girlfriend and some of her vegetarian friends. Apparantly they're in love with the Gardenburgers almost as much as I am with their burgers. So if you're ever on Santa Monica blvd, make sure to stop by this grubbers paradise.

Skip this restaurant. We went there tonight and i ordered a cheeseburger with just ketchup and onions, my husband had hot dogs with Mustard. We got the food to go as we live around the corner from here. For starter i watched the cooks pick up the hot dogs off the grill with just his hands-no gloves or tongs. The cheeseburger had a minimum of ONE CUP of ketchup on it on each side. Clearly a joke taking place between cooks at this dive. The hot dogs were more than smothered in at least a cup of mustard each dog. Dont trust the cooks here, God knows what else they did with our food. I wasnt in on the joke and they figured we would be gone home with our food anyway, not be sitting at the restaurant so we would not see what they had done to our food. I wish i could put up a picture of what they did here. Then on our way out the guy at the register insisted we take a handful of ketchup- so he too was in on the game. Cook at home or watch everything that goes on behind the counter. Not worth your time.

We were really excited about going to Astroburger tonight, but weren't as excited when we left.
All I could think is that it would have been better on a hungover afternoon or to fulfill a latenight craving.
I'm all about fried vegetables, especially zucchini, however i'd have to say that the onion rings take the blue ribbon on this menu. Fries are average, and zucchini has me asking if there really is any zucchini beneath all of the breading surrounding it. Did I order a basket of corndogs?
My friend felt similar about his burger, questioning if there really was any burger amidst the toppings doused in grease that were smashed between shiny slices of bun. He didn't have much to say about his chocolate shake either--we stopped for fro yo afterwards. It was made of soft serve, chocolate syrup and milk--i think? He insists it was powder and water.
I recommend the veggie burger without cheese--it made my burger taste like a load of cheddar with some shredded lettuce in a bun. You know when you have to add ranch to a burger to make it taste better, its probably not your Grade A patty.
Basically, we came home and passed out. Exactly--perfect for a lazy, hungover day.
Not recommended if your trying to be productive, or healthy. Or feel good about yourself.

The price is right though--you can have all this for just $20.

While I enjoyed the wide selection of food offered (from burgers to fried chicken to omelettes), I was a little disappointed in my burger. Don't get me wrong - it was good and the avocado was super fresh, but not anywhere near In-N-out burgers. For vegetarians, however, the selection and quality of the gardenburgers are quite good; i also enjoyed the fried zucchini (could use a lighter breading though). All in all, it's a good place to grab late night munchies.

Forget this location. The Astro Burger at 5601 Melrose, LA CA 90038 is far superior to this one. The menu is much bigger and the serice much better. Especially if you are a vegetarian, the options available at the Melrose one are phenomenal. The meatless Chick'N Grill one of their most beloved burgers, is not even available at the Santa Monica location.

I believe this one has horchata which is not available on Melrose, but other than that, I see no reason to go to this one as the other one isn't that far away!

I hit Astro every weekend and they are truly the best when it comes to old fashioned, diner food. Having cut red meat out of my diet recently, I went from Astro's patty melt to their garden melt (ask for the flame grilled patty), and honestly cannot tell much of a difference. Their fried zucchini and onion rings are out of this world. Their milkshakes are great too. Sometimes they screw up what type of cheese I want on my garden melt, but no biggie. The chicken quesadillas and veggie dog are good too, but my fav. is by far the garden melt!

I ordered a cheeseburger at Astro Burger on Santa Monica Blvd. yesterday. I liked it very much. And it only cost me about $3.

I tend to favor charbroiled hamburgers.

When it comes to hamburgers, the Astro Burger on Melrose and this one taste pretty much the same.

Don't listen to haters who base their overall rating on 1 bad experience. I have been a regular at astro on santa monica blvd for as long as i can remember. I have tried nearly everything on the menu...and there's something for everyone. Some of my favorites include the Double bacon avocado cheeseburger, pastrami melt, chili hotdog, tuna melt (add grilled onions and avocado), and the garden burger. A must for sides: fried zucchini, chili cheese fries, or onion rings. I know this place is open late and is great for after party, late night grubbing. Hands down, i think they've got some of the best food fast food around

i've tried time and again to duplicate their version of the veggie burger, to no avail. be prepared for sloppy yet delish classic fast food...burgers, hot dogs, burritos. carl's jr. has nothing on this place. oh, btw...i'd skip the melrose location. not only does the santa monica one seem somehow better in food quality, but there is much more foot traffic in this one, making for good people watching, and the service is friendlier.

Everytime I have hit Astro Burger, I have been pleased with the quality of the food. Plus the food is made fresh and there is so much variety, you will never get tired of it.

I highly recommend the vanilla shakes and onion rings.

The burgers may be good here, but that doesn't concern me... I come for the ostrich. The corn dogs also cannot be stopped, nor can the pastrami burger, the veggie burger with avocado, or the little peppers they give you. Astro Burger is definitely one of the best in the city, but it you are like me, don't bother with the one on Melrose... that place is ostrich-free.

The chicken quesadillas are well-worth it. Fresh tomatoes and chunks of avocado. It's enough for 2-3 people. If your a big eater, the whole will definitely make you full. The menu itself is pretty variable -- from breakfast to burgers. They're open late too. There's also an outside seating area which I'm sure smokers are thankful for. I've only been to this Astro Burgers location, on Santa Monica Blvd in L.A., so I'm not sure if the other locations are just as good. I've found good stuff so I'll stick to the original place I found it at!
