Downtown Delights-Replay and Westside Counter Intelligence are neck and neck!
The options are:
1) Classic Eats #2 REPLAY – Downtown Delights: Traxx at Union Station and Phillipe’s.
2) Hot Dogs and Hamburgers: Papoo’s Hot Dog Show and Bob’s Big Boy.
3) Westside Counter Intelligence (with a respectful nod to Jonathan Gold for that title): Johnnie’s Pastrami and The Apple Pan.

Downtown Delights – Many of you ride the rails in LA so you have probably been to/through Union Stationa few times. It’s like stepping back in time. Phillipe’s is celebrating its 101st anniversary this year, so let’s go dipping!
Hot Dogs and Hamburgers – Papoo’s is a classic 50’s style Hot Dog stand with awesome signage. (I’m a big fan of signage.) It is just down the block and across the street from Bob’s Big Boy, originator of the double decker hamburger.
Westside Counter Intelligence – Johnnie’s has been around for a while, and I’ve heard their chili cheese fries are the bomb. The Apple Pan is so old it’s new again and the guys working behind the counter are the real deal.
