Hamburger Los Angeles: Marty's and Irv's

Hamburger guru George Motz turned me on to a couple of prime Los Angeles burger spots that will be featured in his forthcoming opus Hamburger America -The Book. The first one was Marty's Hamburger Stand on West Pico Blvd. They do a classic California burger and a mean hot dog as well as the "combo" a burger with chili, cheese and a hot dog on top. I decided against ordering the latter being a bit of a purist but the burger and dog I had both tasted great.

Now open Sundays

A well seasoned grill top.

Classic burger.

Next I headed over to Irv's Burgers for some very friendly hospitality and a tasty burger. The place has been around since 1950 and is a historically protected landmark. Check out their website for a complete history. Link.
