Molly's Charbroiled Burger: 1929-2009???

Molly's Burger stand has been doomed to the dustbin: Eater LA discovered that the long-time Hollywood institution will be knocked down next month to make way for more office space on Vine St. It will be a sad day in February for fans of cheeseburgers, breakfast burritos, and Korean short-ribs, as well as students and tourists looking for a cheap but scenic meal.

From LAist's review of Molly's: "the place has its own Hollywood history: a skit from 'Jackass 2' was filmed here, one of the Johnny-Knoxville-dressed-as-old-man pranks. Even John Constantine has eaten here -- okay, fine, Keanu Reeves as Constantine in the 2005 movie. There are a few seats inside the stand, but it's also fun to pull up a stool on the street, overlooking the Walk of Fame stars, and watch construction go up on the new W Hotel." Here's hoping that Molly's famous burgers find a new home nearby very soon.
