For GF options, burger in a bowl, or GF bun. As of 3/3/13, they now have a Gluten Free menu. Some places have dedicated fryer for GF french fries and sweet potato fries.
2/3 beef. Grilled onions. Brie cheese. Grilled green chilies. Apple smoked bacon. Sun dried tomatoes. Chipotle aioli. w/ a side of sweet potato fries & Belgium seasonal beer = YUM!!!
With all the healthy add-ons (grilled pineapple, roasted peppers, sprouts & more), even a juicy burger can be nutritious. Bonus - whole wheat buns and vegetarian-friendly patties.
The Sprouted Veggie ($10) is a hefty meat-free burger made with a housemade veggie patty, sliced red onion, mixed greens, roasted red peppers and alfalfa sprouts.
Order this: 1/3 beef burger with organic greens, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, grilled onions, avocado, honey mustard and some sweet potato fries.
Really good taste in beers (9 taps), one of the best burgers in L.A. And the parmesan fries are ridiculous. Even better than sweet potato.
Create your own burger, get your best burger 😊 Try their grilled vegetable skewers with pesto and grilled corn! Delicious!
The veggie burger turned out to be extremely tasty. It was even better with an egg on top.
Really fun burger joint: customize every ingredient of your hamburger via a hand-marked order form-- be careful, the burgers are HUGE!!
Great Build-Your-Own burgers! And the milkshakes taste like they did when I was a kid! They even have gluten-free buns!
Customizing can be overwhelming, so don't be afraid to go with a preselected burger. They're preselected for a reason!
Excellent custom built burgers. Make sure to try the crispy onion strings and for those with a sweet tooth, their shakes.
Fantastic burgers made exactly how you want them. Don't want a burger? They can make it in a bowl for you as well.
The fried pickles here are way more breading than pickles. They're really not very tasty. Unless you're into that sort of thing.
2/3 lb. beef, medium, multigrain bun, applewood bacon and tillamock cheddar, with sweet potatoe fries! so good!
Great burgers - it may look complicated, but definitely try building a custom burger, it won't get better than that
AKA "build-a-burger", choose your ingredients very wisely...or you may end up with a homemade disaster for your palette.
You can add stuff to the grilled cheese and its amazing! I like bacon and tomatoes, but anything goes!
Definitely ask for Beth to be your server! She's sweet, super fun, and one of my closest friends!
The yowza coupon worked flawlessly and the to go service (at counter on left as you walk in) was awesome.
A fun way to put together a burger. Their ingredients are vast and allow unique combinations.
Add bacon to the Parmesan fries or bacon and jalepeno to the chili cheese fries. Bomb! :-D
Order the multi-grain bun toasted "well". Otherwise it will be too soft to hold the burger together.
No matter how you get your burger, add Fried Onion Strings to it. Trust me on this one!
Beware medium-rare here it's rarer tan rare at many places. Otherwise awesome burgers
It can be very echo-y when the windows are shut. I wouldn't suggest it for a lunch meeting.
The best burger ever! Come on Tuesday from 4-10pm and order The mini burgers with 4 beer pairing for just $12.
Share an off-menu "Trio" plate of regular fries, sweet potato fries and sweet shoestring fried onions.
I order the veggie burger every time, and I'm not even a vegetarian. It's that good.
Amazing build-your-own burgers. Get the Parmesan fries as well.
No Birthday specials and the host was not very friendly. The food was great!
Build a burger. This month's (Feb 2011) ciabatta bun is recommended! Beer here too.
The sweet potato fries are to die.... One order is big enough to share.
Great fries and great onion rings -- get the half & half.
Confused about your topping options? Just ask for "old school" and you will be pleased.
Nutella milkshake. And for the gluten-free crowd, there is GF bread!
Order anything it's all amazing, best burgers by far!
The chili cheese fries are amazing + you can order them with turkey chili instead of beef chili.
the fry portions are GIANT - split between 3-5 ppl
I love their Unique Veggie, one of the best!
Try the Veggie On Multi Grain With Hot Wing Sause - #Veggie #Sauce #Burger
Do your phone a favor and use that Starbucks wifi..
One of the best burgers you'll find in Los Angeles!
Great burgers! Build your own. -Michael Voltaggio, Top Chef
