Favourite Cheeseburger in LA

OK I am sure this has been discussed before, but to keep the information fresh I am starting again - I am interested in finding the best cheeseburger in LA.

To throw the first hat in the ring, I am going to say that I did really enjoy my CB at Duke's in Malibu yesterday, simple and light but super tasty and fresh. I'd say it pipped at the post the burger at 25 Degrees (Hollywood/Orange) although the latter did come with much more flare and pomposity (fiscally reflected).

Excluding service, disregarding ambience, ignoring price, what is flat out the best Cheeseburger in LA? (Don't be afraid to mention Paris' favourite In & Out).

Any thoughts?

      I second Hungry Cat and also the burger at Grace is pretty tasty.

        Oh my! That's everything I like in one burger Adding to my try list.

      3. Hinano, an unlikely-looking dive bar on Washington gets mine.

            Spago has a cheeseburger? Is it only at lunch? I don't recall seeing it on any menu I have seen.

            1. re: Ciao Bob

              I'm pretty sure it's lunch only. It's excellent. And the bun in paticular is great - perfectly toasted and it has both sesame and poppy seeds.

              1. re: LisaStitch

                Yep, haven't tried it. But there is a cheesebruger on the lunch menu it might be labeled as "Grilled Hamburger" or possibly as Kobe burger,

            2. Bake & Broil in Long Beach, ordered with grilled onions. I don't care for the frou frou stuff like blue cheese or bacon which only covers up the burger flavor
