The Eat Street Club

The Eat Street Club

Local hip hop duo, People Under The Stairs pays tribute to over 30 Southland fast food joints on their recently released track, Eat Street. This not only gives Los Angeles a much needed fast food anthem, it provides area foodies with a new badge of honor: The Eat Street Club.

To become an official Eat Street Club member:

  • At each restaurant mentioned in the song you must entirely consume a full meal. e.g. for a burger joint you must finish a burger, fries and a drink. Eating one stewed prune at Phillippe’s does not count and is not in the spirit of The Eat Street Club.
  • If an establishment’s menu item is mentioned in the song, you must eat said menu item. For instance, at Fritto Misto you must order the gnocchi. And at Busy Bee you must have either the chicken or the pastrami Belly Buster. Or both.
  • Elite status will be granted to those achieving membership within a one-week period OR those who are actually murdered at A-1 Burger. If you plan to shoot for elite privileges please contact us immediately. We want to watch.
  • Losanjealous can not be held liable for any health complications arising from your attempt to join the Eat Street Club.

An online shrine will be created for those able to prove their membership through photo and receipt documentation.

Lyrics by People Under the Stairs

I might call your spot pumpin’ if you got crushed ice
In a styrofoam cup with the refill rights
So homie no time to chill we got places to try
I gotta find some grilled onions and a large side of fries

Some guys are mad smart, some guys are tough dudes
But me and my homies we mostly care about food
Got spots to peruse and never choosin’ McDonald’s
I’m talkin Al’s cheesteaks, Dino’s and Chano’s

Tomy’s on Pico, Hi-Life in Pasadena
Man and Lucky Boy too and I can’t forget Arena
Wilson Burger by PCH in Hawthorne
And right around the corner is Y-Not, it’s awesome

Melrose got Astro’s and that’s that
I only mess with Fat Burger if your fries are fat
Now Whittier got Ruby’s they’re renowned for their shakes
It’s like the Claim Jumper pilin’ up the food on your plate

Wait, now better yet let me tell you ’bout that Busy Bee
You get the Belly Buster–the chicken or the pastrami
Tommy’s on the late night, Eat Well for breakfast
And Fritto Misto with my lady–gnocchi’s the best dish

Shout to Papadakis, Lighthouse and a Waffle House
Fantastic Cafe and Pronto they rule the South
Word to your mouth until the next Phillippe’s
Yo I’m out on the streets looking for something to eat

When I’m chillin’ I’d rather be grillin’
Gimme a plate of the flavor and Mike starts stealin’
Now if I ain’t squeezin’ lemon on the roast chicken
I’m jumpin’ on the row like the fast food villain

Burgers I be killin’, tomatoes and all
I be coolin’ in the food court of your favorite mall
Buyin’ brunch like it was weight, throw it in the back of the trunk
I’m off to Tom’s #2 to get me some lunch

Ten beef tacos, senor. Extra cheese.
And the chips that you got at the store, lookie here
Now I just passed Oki-Dog, I’m headed toward Lucy’s
Passed the Roscoe’s–they can keep them waffles

In the distance I see a place they call El Rey
Home of the garbage burrito and if not then hit Benito’s
Taquitos for days and a big bag of Lay’s
Wash it down with a soft drink, hmm…let me think

I head down west to the A-1 Burger
Where the french fries are fresh and you might get murdered
Or what about Johnny’s pastramis and shakes
So you can hit Chabelita’s for the midnight break

After the club spend a dub and you can feed your crew
On any given day this is what I might do
Go place a order…then wait…pick it up
