In the mood for some good old fashioned, lets dine at a dive, where the locals thrive, the food can't be beat and the fries are served up on a platter? Well, look no further!
MVP's in Long Beach, California is a tiny, hole in the wall, drive by too fast and you'll miss this fine, dive eating establishment. It is located on a somewhat major street, nestled between apartment buildings and craftsman houses.
What's on the menu you ask? Well, every item on the menu is named after an all American sports MVP. From a mile high stacked burger served up 6 ways with the title of "The George Foreman I-VI" (The Forman VI being my faav->feta and red onions) to the home of "The Pete Rose" (a vegi patty burger) Yesss! They cater to all palates. Other menu items include, The Tiger Woods, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jean-Claude Killy (chicken breast on squaw with sprouts and avocado), The Harry Carey (club sandwich), The Michael Jordan, The Duke (a Hawaiian style burger with swiss, tasty sauce and a pineapple to boot) and The Shaq Burger to name a few. A burger here at MVP's can easily be shared between two or just you :)! Such a diverse menu for a great price too!
They have either a half or full order of Cajun style fries (yumm). A full order is good enough to share with at least 3 people. When stopping by, don't forget to ask for a side of Cajun sauce to dip those tantalizing fries in!
The dining environment is an outdoor patio, with a walk up window. The joint is sitting in front of a craftsman style house and but don't let that throw you off. The kitchen quarters is small (two chefs maximum), so the food can take a bit if their is a line (and there is always a line)! The food is made to order which ensures the freshness of your meal. MVP's has a strong local following, customers from all backgrounds, business professionals, artists, college students, you name it, the aroma will bring you in! So, if you're a hamburger connoisseur, be sure to add MVP's to your list. You will find yourself making up reasons to visit Long Beach!
