Celebrate National Burger Day With These Bizarre Burger Mascots


We’re throwing a party for National Burger Day and inviting all of Los Angeles’s wildest old-time burger mascots. These burger boys graced menus, matchbooks, and paper hats from midcentury stands and coffee shops, and their job was to be as jovial and welcoming as the outlandish architecture. Big Boy, Speedee, Bun ’n Burger, the Goody’s guy, and Mr. Poulos at Pann’s still welcome diners. Drop by today and enjoy a hot hamburger with character.
