The Plan Check location on Sawtelle is one of my very favorite restaurants ever. I’ve been there three times and that never happens.
One and done, is usually my philosophy.
But when I heard they were opening a location within walking distance (and a few blocks from The Grove) I had to check it out. Had to, once again, get my burger on.
Plan Check makes LA’s best burger. I often wrestle with placing Father’s Office above PC, but I have now given up on that futile notion. Plan Check makes the better burger.
And the Fairfax location (a bit more loungy and geared towards the nightlife than Sawtelle) does not stray from Sawtelle’s perfect burger formula.
Soft, pliable bun coated with crispies, perfect sized and seasoned patty, lots of ooey gooey cheese and sauces. What more could you ask for?
If you can only eat one thing here, get the burger.
If you make it back a second time, get the Smokey Fried Chicken.
If you are as obsessed as I am, come, yet again, for the Southern Fry (fried chicken sandwich).
The fries are great, but I wouldn’t really bother with the stuffed mushrooms. I ordered them with my burger and they were forgettable.
One thing you MUST save room for are the Cruller Donuts with whipped cream. THEY ARE AWESOME, YOU IDIOTS!!
Sorry, not sure what came over me.
I never ordered them my first two visits cuz they seemed they would be dry and boring (and I was already stuffed to the gills with burger) but on my third visit, I had to see what the fuss was about.
This is a fuss-worthy dessert, you simply HAVE to get it. Idiots!
Sorry again. Ok, I’m leaving now. I’m in a mood.
