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.

    The comments about the host are real funny tbh. Ok, I get you are worried about his health and shit, but nobody asked your opinion, nor is important. The guy is an adult person, capable of making his own decisions. You guys need to worry about the decisions YOU make in YOUR life and leave the host be. If he wants to reach to someone to loose weight, good. If he doesn't, also good. Anyways, love the show.

    I'm not that "typical" angry commenter like most of the hate regarding this video. Honestly this was useless. A staggeringly obese filipino pretending to be from the "hood" and quick shots of a "latino car group" pretending to be legit.

    Man this is such a trip, late at night and cant sleep and it turns out i missed this episode. My Tio Jaime passed 2 years ago and he was apart of the Together Car Club. Not a day goes by that i dont think about him. I have been absolutely loving this show and so happy something caught my eye that i missed this episode and i needed to watch this. He was a man who loved his family, friends, car, the Together Car Club and a DAMN good burger. Def going to make this burger soon. Great work Alvin and crew, much love

    I loved seeing this because it's true people equate people who drive low riders to gangs! So this was beautiful to see that it's not what that's about that it's about the love of cars, family and being together! Those burgers and ribs looked amazing!

    This episode makes no sense. Talks about how serious they are about their backyard burgers, then shows no examples, tastes none of theirs, and cooks one instead he made up.... And then he ate some ribs. What. Is. This. Show.
