Angelenos love their old-fashioned burger joints, but have also embraced this upscale, contemporary eatery. Check off your preferences on an order sheet—choose between beef, turkey, or veggie patties, then add cheeses, toppings, and one of 18 different sauces (anything from spicy sour cream to sweet BBQ sauce). You can even select your bun, although carb counters go for the "burger-in-a-bowl." Even with the slick surroundings and wild combinations, this emerging chain
is a nostalgic reminder of L.A.'s ongoing love affair with the burger.
