A Chili Burger in the Valley

Hughlipton Nov 13, 2010 04:55 PM

Ok, I've got the Carney's scene in mind and Jack's Classic. Now exclusing those two whose Chili Burger in the Valley incites any of you to make it a must go to destination?

    Original Tommy's in Van Nuys?

      I prefer the Canoga Park Tommy's on Topanga, but I agree with the Tommy's rec.

      I don't know about "must go to destination", but The Stand ((Encino) makes a pretty good hamburger and their chili is pretty good...I've never had both together. It was either a hamburger or a chili dog.

        Riverside Cafe and Corner Cottage.

        And a good standby no matter what part of SoCal you are at is Islands.

          I seem to remember that in high school I really liked the CB at Daglas in Canoga Park (lthough I spent more time at Cupid's next door). We would order chili dogs at Cupid's and then go next door to Daglas and get an order of fries and dip those in the chili - heaven!!
          Also, I would go to the Athenian Grill on Reseda and get their CB (and basically anything with chili). They also have good Gyros.

            "We would order chili dogs at Cupid's and then go next door to Daglas and get an order of fries and dip those in the chili - heaven!!"

            Your heart's in the right place, Swede, but I always go to Daglas, where the line is usually longer, THEN to Cupid's. Otherwise, the chili-dog bun might disintegrate by the time you get to it. Incidentally, I avoid Cupid's at the end of the day, because the chili can be low on meat by what is often called that point in time.

              You have a point, but for me the fries need to be really, really hot and that means straight out of the fryer (and well done, of course)!! ;-)

            I've had surprisingly good chili sizes at Bob's Big Boy in Northridge
