DREW HUBBARD & BEN WATERS (AKA LA FOODIE)LOS ANGELES

BACK TO local experts

Drew founded L.A. Foodie with the intention of blogging and reviewing the dives and shacks that make-up his favorite spots in Los Angeles. Hell, he was going to those places anyway. Drew posts many of L.A. Foodie’s reviews and photos, and he joins Ben Waters on the #LAFoodiePodcast.

Ben Waters co-hosts the #LAFoodiePodcast with Drew and produces L.A. Foodie’s awesome videos. Ben was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, which means that he can survive on barbecue sauce alone for up to three weeks.
