Lotsa New Burgers Around--Best Classic Style

Adsvino Aug 29, 2008 12:31 PM

What is your favorite classically proportioned one? Had the 8oz Burger (old Table 8) Classic Burger last night. Really looked the part, but the flavor was not there, even with a dunk in some of their sauces. I'd give it a 5 out of 10.

As far as the old places, I like the Fred 62 Wimpy Burger (7 out of 10) and In N Out (7). Not a huge fan of Irvs. Any discoveries?

    Pls. Note Classic style means NO GIANT PATTIES over 5-6 ozs. I am okay with newfangled condiments and sliders, though,

      For a newish place I like O! Burger in WEHO. I tried the combo with burger rare, small salad instead of fries and one of the two iced teas.

        Classic Burgers are hard to find these days, but I get mine at one of L.A.'s oldest stands.

        Nick & George Chronis in East L.A.

        Fresh ingredients!

          Try Jack's Classic Hamburgers on Riverside in Toluca Lake/N. Hollywood. Great classic burgers!

            This is a good burger. With the combo they tend to be "generous" with fries, like twice In n Out's allotment, in my experience at least.

            Two come to mind.

            1. Pie N Burger

            2. The happy hour burger at McCormick & Schmicks

              26 Beach is OG, been doing Classic burgers on homemade buns for 25+ years, they also have their share of gourmet type burgers. I just had a cheese burger there yesterday, after my fiasco at The Counter I needed a good burger. You might also want to try Cassell's on 6th just west of Vermont Avenue. Yanakis in El Monte is a great burger shack, also in that area is Art's, very similar to In & Out but they make chili which reminds me of the chili from Jay's Jay Burgers (GFC) Great F_innn Chili!
