    In-N-Out may be the iconic L.A. burger, but the SoCal Burger with house-made cheese and caramelized onions at this mini-chain is getting raves, too.

    It's all about the perfectly sized burger with the juiciest meat, ever. Bonus: most burgers are under $10. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Burgers are quite the bargain. Each looks picture-perfect -- shiny brown bun, rounded at the top; thick, juicy patty. They're on the petite side, actually, which is a good thing. Read more

    The first Umami International Symposium was held in Hawaii in 1985. There the term Umami was officially scientifically recognized. It is the taste of substances known as glutamates and nucleotides.

    Have had them all but any time there is a Duck Burger special, get it. The Hatch and Manly Burgers are my fave. And the cheesey tater tots are bomb.

    Tater tots with jalepeno sour cream was the best part. Only one veggie option (outside of the special they have "3 days a month") not good certainly not great!! House beer is a bust!

    SoCal burger is always good. If you want ice cream sandwiches (from Milk) for dessert, order ahead of time. They run out EARLY

    If u are veggie you can ask to replace the burger with a portobello mushroom. Delicious.

    I'm still eating the traditional "Umami Burger" probably because it's so simple and great!

    I personally find Umami a tad overrated, but they're definitely burger innovators and no tour of the LA burger scene would be complete without a visit.

    Although the food was somewhere between descent and good, the service was horrific. The Counter tops this place any day of the week.
