    1. We need Burger Boy to answer this one. I am not sure if the news story I heard was somehow related to the bad news you mention but I recall hearing something about a death of a women and the name in the news was Naka and the place made burgers. I do not know what city or if it was Naka's Broiler in Compton. Maybe call for sure?

          So which is better, Mom's or Naka's? And what's best at each?

        2. I'm under the impression that Mom died awhile ago and Cig runs it now. That place is awesome . . . best burger around.

          1. Asit happens, the lady who originated the Fatburger chain just died recently (as per an LA Time obit from a couple of days ago). She held on to the original location on Western near Jefferson until fairly recently. This is not the same person you mention but I just thought I'd make a note of another unfortunate passing.
