- $40 Worth of Burgers and American Fare
In Los Angeles, a few things are constant: the traffic on the 101, the tourists clogging the sidewalks at Hollywood and Vine, and the burgers of Hamburger Hamlet. An LA fixture since 1950, the shop (which started as the Sunset Strip dream of Harry and Marilyn Lewis) now lives on in Sherman Oaks, where owners Kevin Michaels and Brett Doherty oversee its all-beef legacy. As the name suggests, hamburgers rule the menu here. Made with California beef sourced from the Central Valley's Harris Ranch, these classic American eats come topped with classic combos ranging from chili and cheese to bacon and Dijon mustard. Newer favorites incorporate slow-braised short ribs or reuben-style pastrami, as well as shareable pub-style apps, but there are also plenty of old-fashioned favorites; try the restaurant's famed lobster bisque, or an all-day selection of hearty eggs and omelets.
