Westside- Westchester, El Segundo, Venice- Burger Craving

Where is a good place to have a burger??

  1. The Shack in Playa.

    Big Mike's on Main in El Segundo does perhaps the best Philly Cheesesteak in SoCal. Their burgers look good but I haven't tried them. Good light-battered onion rings.

    Hinano in the last block from the beach on Washington does a great burger in a divy bar setting, but parking is difficult.

        Second City Bistro in El Segundo does a great burger as well.

          Third Hinano. Everyone in there is having a burger and a beer. It's perfect.

        2. Houston's Manhattan Beach has a good burger, I also like the Louie burger at North End Cafe in
          MB with brie, bacon, herb salad, creole mojo,
          My Favorite is Pann's on LaTijera Blvd near LAX for the best 2/3 pound patty melt in LA.

          1. I like the burger at Sunny Spot.

            1. Yes to 26 Beach, the best burger in the area you mentioned.
              Thompkins Square, a gastro pub, is another option. Hinano serves a good burger, but it's a true dive bar.

              1. People rave about the burger at Hungry Cat. There is one in Santa Monica.

                  The burger at Rustic Canyon (in Santa Monica) is exceptional; I believe they have a special "burger night" too.
