Hamburgers are truly America’s food. Born from the nation’s obsession with beef coupled with the modern highway system, the humble burger can be high-end or low — grabbed quickly via drive-thru, or sought out as a destination. It’s hard to say what makes a perfect burger, simply because there are so many different iterations of the seemingly simple beef and bun device.
Los Angeles is at the center of American’s burger obsession. The few-frills food is done up in countless ways from the beachy towns of the South Bay to the heart of LA’s chef-driven culinary movement. Everyone loves to eat a burger, and in all sorts of styles, formats, and price point ranges — no wonder they appear on so many restaurant menus across the city. From the old-school burger counters to the walk-up windows, street stands, and sit-down spots that come complete cloth napkins, here are some of Los Angeles’s most essential burgers, sorted geographically.
