Before diners lay eyes on the bright-pink hull of the Baby’s Badass Burgers food truck, they may first notice its wafts of enchanting smoky grilled beef.. At stops around town, the crew of burger babes serves stacked meats and condiments such as the She’s Smokin, a vision of smoked cheddar, crispy onions, and bacon doused in barbecue sauce. Co-founder Erica Cohen created their flagship burger, the Original Beauty, a combination of grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, swiss cheese and special sauce.
The truck has achieved its own spotlight with an appearance on Entourage and by winning an episode of Food Wars, in addition to frequent stop ins from celebs who are fans. More adventurous diners can tackle the ultra-deluxe Cougar burger, which pairs aged beef with St. Andre cheese and shaved black truffles, or the half-pound Bombshell that challenges even titanium stomachs with two bacon-cheese melts for buns and taunts of “chicken” on the way down.
When Millions of Milkshakes introduces a new milkshake or smoothie, paparazzi and screaming fans usually attend the event. That’s because these drink exposés often dovetail with a celebrity appearance—stars such as Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, and Albert Einstein have hand-crafted desserts that now appear on the creamery's menu.
In addition to serving celebrity-endorsed desserts, Millions of Milkshakes prepares custom-made creations. It does so in three steps, scooping a base (dairy or non-dairy ice cream), tailoring the dessert to a size, and mixing in toppings. Its roster of nearly 60 toppings includes everything from candy and hot fudge to fresh fruit and protein powder.
Between the celebrity following, the DIY process, and the bright-colored shop with plasma screens and modern music, Millions of Milkshakes has attracted the attention of many national news outlets, including E! and NBC News.
From its first location in West Hollywood to its free-range food truck, Rounds Premium Burgers doles out mighty American burgers made with beef, turkey, chicken, or veggie patties along with a large selection of fries.

Custom burgers start with a foundation of daily-baked bread and a patty, which are then slathered with exotic sauces (from chipotle aioli to buttermilk ranch and tabasco ketchup) and layered with toppings such as crispy onion strings, breaded jalapeños, and grilled pineapple. From the burgers to the sweet-potato fries, the griddlemasters make all of their hearty, old-fashioned fare by hand.
