In a time-strapped, health-conscious society, organic fast food was bound to happen. Los Angeles-based OBurger is out to show consumers that organic, healthy fast food can be just as convenient as more calorie-clogging fast food options.

The logistics alone at OBurger are an impressive feat in restaurant innovation. The restaurant uses non-toxic cleaning supplies and packaging that is recyclable, compostable or biodegradable. The space features building materials made of reclaimed wood and lead-free paint.

The 100% organic menu is equally dedicated to the organic and sustainable cause. Grass-fed beef, vegan house-made veggie patties and free-range turkey burgers make up the eponymous burger selections. Shakes are sweetened with aseel dates and use vegan chocolate. Even the typical soda-and-juice selections are healthy, with Adina beverages, Purity fruit juices, healthy soda and kombucha tea. All condiments--ketchup, mustard, thousand island dressing, barbecue sauce, chipotle sauce--are house-made and 100% organic. There are even three vegan sauces: thousand island, barbecue and chipotle.
