Fodor's Review

There's sweet, salty, bitter, and sour, and now, there's Umami. This burger joint, named after the pleasant savory taste discovered by the Japanese, has found a loving following by locals who come here for gourmet burgers that awaken all the senses. A simple dining room with lively music creates a casual environment that's home to locals, gourmets, and families who come in search of a savory burger with unique fixings. Go for the Umami burger made with a juicy patty and served medium rare with a parmesan crisp and the signature ketchup that's both sweet and savory. Or try the SoCal burger that's made with oven-dried tomato spread, butter lettuce, and house-made American cheese. Add a side of sweet potato fries or ask for the off-the-menu cheesy tater tots that come with jalapeño ranch dressing.
