Glendale Area - Good Burger Joint Needed

Hey All.

My folks are coming into town for the holidays and after their day long flight, all they want to do is relax and grab a burger. Shortly thereafter we'll be heading over to the Americana for a picture with their granddaughter and Santa.

So, I'm looking for a good table service joint that isn't a madhouse but is clean (and no dives please - at least for them).

    1. The oinkster is fun! In eagle rock, just a few minutes from glendale...

      1. If you're going to be at the Americana, why not just go to the Cheesecake Factory? They might be a chain, but their Factory Burger is one of the 2 best in town - the other being Arnie Morton's lunch burger. If they're coming into LAX or Burbank Airports, the Daily Grill has terrific burgers. Or if it's Burbank Airport, head north on Hollywood Way to the Ramp - #3 on my list of best in L.A.

          Cheesecake Factory? Nah. Not really what we're looking for. My folks can get that generic kind of meal in Florida. But thanks.

        2. The York? Their cheddar burger is delicious.

          1. Jax Bar & Grill is just a few blocks up from the Americana if you don't mind paying $12 for a burger. In & Out is right there at the Americana, and Granville Cafe there has good burgers.

              I was a long time fan of Jax, but I think they've got precipitously downhill. Have you been there lately? (I have not, I wrote them off about three years ago.)
