This OG burger spot has been serving classic, California-style cheeseburgers since 1963. The burger itself is pretty simple - an old-school greasy patty on a fresh bun with housemade Thousand Island dressing, American cheese, pickles, and lettuce. But there’s a reason they’ve never messed with this classic, because this is one of LA’s best burgers. Next time you’ve had a terrible day at work and need to drown your sorrows in meat and cheese, this is a great place to do it.
