    magnolia bar on lake avenue in pasadena is serving a killer burger and it's so much like kobe if you order it rare or medium rare. i think it kills the father's office burger.

      In Sherman Oaks, both Max and Boneyard Bistro have very good versions of a Kobe burger, and yet the LAT did not even get into the 818 to discover how good they are.

          Haven't had much experience in this arena, but I particularly liked Lucky Devil's (along with their thick and tasty toasted pecan shakes made with frozen custard) in Hollywood.

            Try Mako in Beverly Hills. They do a Wagyu burger with Tempura Onion Rings just for lunch. http://www.makorestaurant.com

            click on the menu link then lunch. Just read a thread that he is also serving imported Kobe Wagyu(which is probably not on the regular menu - and probably going to be in a burger) so just make sure that the it is Americanized Wagyu burger.

              LA times wenesday food section did the front page on this topic this week.

              Of course a couple of chefs commented that Kobe-style beef doesn't do well in a chopped form and the Kobe-style burgers probably only have a small % of it.....
