The Sherman Oaks location was revived last year by the Killer Shrimp group.

A classic LA-born establishment almost went into the dust bin forever last year when Hamburger Hamlet's final location in Sherman Oaks closed its doors. It's been a little bit rough trying to get the once proud chain back on its feet, but the Killer Shrimp owners of Kevin Michaels and Brett Doherty re-opened the last remaining restaurant in September of 2014.

While other outlets such as the one on Sunset Strip, or Brentwood, were more iconic, this humble location along Van Nuys Blvd. still serves a wide array of burgers, from the guacamole burger to the Marilyn, loaded up with avocado, tomato, and jack cheese. Of course, other popular dishes like the lobster bisque, caesar salad, and spaghetti and meatballs dot the expansive menu, making it a little bit of a blast from the past. Here now, check out the last remaining Hamburger Hamlet (though some expansions are supposedly in the works) at 7 p.m. on a Friday evening.
