I'm sorry Maura, I'd let you have more but this has onions on it.
Bill & Hiroko’s, Dave. 14742 Oxnard street, it’s about a mile, maybe a mile and a half north of you. Oxnard’s between Burbank and Victory, and Bill’s is between Kester and Van Nuys Blvd. Just go up Kester, turn right at Oxnard, and look for the little hole-in-the-wall lunch counter on the right side of the street. Maura can sit right next to you on one if their outside stools, because they have no indoor seating at all.
Guy’s been flipping burgers there, seriously, since 1965. Very simple, and very very good. Nothing spectacular, just good food.
Oh, one other thing. The guy’s in his mid-80s, so he’s slowing down a bit. He’s only open during the week (the area is mostly industrial) from 8-4 or something along that lines. Don’t try to go on the weekend.
Dogs prefer their burgers “Protein Style”. Ask for it by name!
Daglas at Vanowen and Winnetka. Responsible for many missed deadlines at the Daily News as we’d sit around practically unable to work after this classic SoCal dive-fest.
Anybody who hasn’t ingested a little dog hair at one or another time in his/her life hasn’t ever owned a dog. Same goes for cat fur.
Unfortunately, there are no In-and-Outs in Ohio… yet. It’s getting tougher to even find a decent White Castle (birthplace of what’s come to be known as “the slider”) anymore. The best place for us to get burgers is the Dairy Corner, local to our own little village.
I don’t like Five Guys just because I don’t like eating in places where they throw peanut shells on the floor.
I’ve always wanted to try Animal Style. Sadly, though I love them, onions in any quantity will kill me dead.
I’ve never had an In-and-Out since there are none in my area. But it’s clear that they have an almost cult-like following, so I will definitely try it if I ever have the opportunity.
I had a Five Guys once and it was pretty good. Unfortunately I failed to realize that “everything” includes mushrooms, which I despise. Still, I’ll try it again.
But I will continue to spam each and every hamburger thread with recommendations for Jake’s Wayback Burger for those who live in the Northeast. It really does remind me of a hole-in-the-wall burger joint where I used to eat as a kid. They offer homemade chips in addition to fries, and they have about a dozen flavors of milkshake. Malt is available as an option.
