Kobe Beef Burger?

I was recently in Boston and had a Kobe Beef Burger and boy was it good. I can't stop thinking about it but who knows when I'll be back in the city. So I was wondering if there was anywhere in LA that I could get a Kobe Beef Burger? (I'm in Glendale, but anywhere in the city is fine...)

  1. You mean real honest-to-goodness Japanese Kobe beef. Or the American stuff? I know The Grill in BH has the fake kobe, and it's $27. Really good.

    Cut has an appetizer Kobe burger. Dakota has a fake Kobe too. I think it's like $40, though.

    1. I kind of remember that Cora's in Santa Monica (1802 Ocean Ave.) has an American-Kobe burger. I definitely remember that it is delicious. I like the whole menu there and the atmosphere is nice too. I haven't been for a while but I imagine it is still good.

        I was there recently and it's still very good. I think they also have an American-style Kobe burger at the Arsenal in West LA that's pretty decent.

          agreed on the kobe burger at arsenal. i didn't expect much when i tried it and the burger kinda wowed me. nice and juicy with a lot of flavor.

      2. 26 Beach has had american kobe burgers for a year or more.

          Yes, I LOVE the 26 Beach Kobe Beef Burger, but it's not a regular menu item, it is a "special" most days, if not every day. $14 Very yummy. I order it on a brioche bun.

        2. I really like the American Kobe beef burger at Lucky Devil on Hollywood Blvd. They also have good beer and a great milk shake.

            I can not eat like i used to, a milkshake and burger is to much. I really want to try their milkshake!

          2. Stonehill Tavern has one, and I also heard that Lucky Devils is good.

            The absolute best Kobe burger I've ever had is at Martini House in Napa, CA - if you're ever up there - I drove 4 hours roundtrip once just to have it..

            1. They have Kobe Hot Dogs at Surfas, FYI

                I noticed that last time I was in. Have you tried them?

                  No, how much better than a Hebrew, Hoffy or a Nathans could they be! Actually TJ's has a Neiman Ranch no nitrate, no nitrite, uncured that is great!
