LA's Hottest New Burgers

Sitting tall and pretty at Laurel Hardware
We didn't create the burger in Los Angeles, but the first fast-food joints popped up here in Southern California. It's been a burger love affair ever since. Whether you like a classic with cheese and pickles or a gourmet umami-bomb, all-beef or vegetarian patties, or something in between, we've got you covered. Here are eight burgers we think really sizzle right now. Did we miss your favorite newcomer? Let us know for next time.

    1. The Golden State has one of my favorite burgers in the city. These are new or newish burgers, which is why it's not on here. This isn't the definitive "best burger" list in LA. Just one of many lists! Thanks!

  2. 25 Degrees in the Hollywood Roosevelt @ 7000 Hollywood Boulevard. There's a reason the #1 burger is #1, but you can build your own from a great selection of toppings and regional cheeses. And don't miss the sweet potato fries or onion rings here. Get a half-and-half order of those and you'll weep tears of job.

    1. Love 25 Degrees, but we tried to focus on newer places for this particular list. Thanks for the suggestion!

  3. I never would have predicted it, but the burger at La Poubelle on Franklin is fantastic. Perfect.

  5. Hole in The Wall on Santa Monica Blvd. about three blocks east of the 405 (entrance around the corner on Bentley). Place lives up to its name in appearance and the burgers are the best in L.A. You select your burger and go-withs on a paper slip menu that you check off. My favorite is the beef burger on brioche with grilled onions and onion mayonnaise. The ketchup is house made and superb.

  6. Seriously? No Hole in the Wall or Commes Ca?

    And Plan Check - yes, turn in your burger credentials, as they're revoked.

  8. Hole in the Wall is disgusting. Father's Office makes the number one burger, followed by the Blueprint Burger at Plan Check. Closing it with third place is Hot's Famous Burger at Hot's Cantina.
