Great Cheap Food: 99c Burgers at The Rockefeller
THE GOODS: You’re going to get a beer anyways, why not get a 99c burger to go with it? Hit up The Rockefeller in Manhattan Beach to enjoy it.
On Tuesdays, we have a new ritual – go to Angela’s yoga class at Guru’s Gate Yoga in Manhattan Beach, and follow that with 99c burgers and a salad at The Rockefeller! It’s a great deal – with every $6+ beverage purchased on Tuesdays, you get the option to order the monthly special burger, for just $0.99.
The Rockefeller is a comfy neighborhood feeling spot – scanning the crowd, I usually see a mix of well-to-do older couples, young couples having dinner, groups of guys having beers, girls who look like they also just left a workout/class of some sort, and people who look like they’re on an online date. The setting is casual (I mean, we roll up in our yoga clothes with mats in tow) and the staff is friendly. There are 3 TVs through the whole place. I don’t love this but since it is really a bar/restaurant, people gotta have their sports – this is LA Kings country, after all!
This month the burger had grilled peppers and onions and was topped with melted fontina & provolone cheese. They come out piping hot and delicious on a nice fresh bun! Such a great deal with the $0.99 pricing. We usually split a salad to go with it – I recommend the Autumn Rocke with mixed greens, fennel, persimmons, and gorgonzola cheese.
You can’t go wrong for the price and the quality of the food. Check it out sometime!
