The Standing Room on Cataline & Diamond in the back of the liqueur store. Hawaiian/Korean fusion. Hands down one of the best burgers ive ever had. I get the "Cash" & my gf gets the "Chance" (be warned if they ask if you want it extra spicy, cause that **** is hot). The sweet potato fries and sauces are also great.

You know, I finally had the fried egg on a burger in Redondo called Sophie's Place. Meh, I can totally do w/o it. Really didn't do it for me. At least in that particular instance.
I actually do like a fried egg on a burger. But I need the egg to be over easy and it needs to be paired with an Ortega whole green chile'. I get that, I'm good to go...
For an everyday burger, I go to Crazee Burger in Northpark, SD. My favorite burger joint here in San Diego. Hodad's is ok but not as good as Crazee which has different game meats you can try.
In Hawaii I'm partial to Kua'Aina, I don't know if they still have one in Santa Monica at the 3rd St. Promenade.
I get the occasional burger from restaurants but if they have other stuff I'll most likely not get a burger but the Whisk-N-Ladle/PrepKitchen and Davanti's have nice burgers.
If a place doesn't have bacon on the menu I won't go unless I'm with people from out of town that need to go. (In-N-Out/Burger Lounge)
MVP's Grill & Patio - Long Beach, CA
this place is awesome but obviously not a gourmet burger type place.
Thinkin about takin the wifey to the new Slater's 50/50 in Lake Forest tonight.
THE FLAMIN’ HOT; signature fire beef patty, beer battered jalapeņos, fire roasted green chilies, pepper jack cheese and chipotle adobo mayo on white brioche.
