Dining on a dime? Chow down on quality food for less dough at these Angeleno hotspots.

The Apple Pan (10801 W. Pico Blvd.)
I swear by this legendary burger joint! Packed to the brim, seating is first come first served, so grab up empty seats around the U-shaped bar. Burger, fries, and a drink will run you about $11. Save room for the luscious apple pie a la mode.

Hugo’s Tacos (4749 Coldwater Cyn.)
Organic? Check. Fresh horchatas? Check. Vegan ice cream? Check, check, check. Mexican eats doesn’t get any better than this. Order the meal deal to add chips, salsa and a refreshing drink to any burrito, tacos or bowl.

Pink’s Hot Dogs (709 N. La Brea Ave.)
No visit to LA is complete without making a stop at this Hollywood institution, a family-owned hot dog stand since 1939. Don’t let the line that circles around the block deter you from experiencing the best, juiciest hot dogs in SoCal.

Mulberry Street Pizzeria (Beverly Hills, Encino, Sherman Oaks)
Hands down the best pizza in LA, straight from the streets of New York City. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in the City of Angels, this place is a must for any self-proclaimed pie connoisseur. Order the lunch special that comes with 2 hefty pizza slices, small salad and drink, a tasty steal for just $8.
