Why Lowriders and Backyard Burgers Define East L.A. | The Burger Show

  • Published on Jun 19, 2018
  • It’s no secret that Los Angeles has minted stars in the burger world. But for many natives, it’s the homegrown, backyard burger traditions that keep the burger scene here alive and well. Just ask Alvin, whose childhood growing up in East L.A. is filled with memories of grilling burgers on Sundays and watching the area’s famous lowrider clubs cruise the boulevard. Today, he’s linking up with Together Car Club to talk shop about the communal power of backyard burgers and why lowriders and grilling go hand-in-hand.

    I lived in Cali during my 20's. I never really understood the low rider thing. Which is ok I guess since I was just some white kid from the midwest lol. That being said I certainly respect the time, love, effort and passion they put into it. There is room for everyone in the car family. Some like fast, some like bone stock cherry others like a show piece or a statement. Me personally I like performance. I want it to be fast or handle great. I don't care if its primer grey with no interior. But some of those cars sure are pretty to look at. True works of art.

    The turn around in local communities from Car Clubs is probably the story of 2010+ people have changed their attitudes and want to help each other out.

    East LA is where it's at. Medanales NM is the lowrider capital of the US. I just wanna be at either or, or somewhere in between. Kids changed my plans but before I die I'll own a 6 tre impala 2 door. If its half this clean I'd be cool with that.
