Bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions and side of potato chips at Bill's Burgers

This weekday-only, retro burger counter has been serving the Valley since 1965. Husband and wife team Bill and Hiroko grill every burger (on a well-seasoned flattop) to order and their bacon cheeseburger ($5.30) could easily be the pin-up as the ultimate classic burger: A nicely seared patty, mayo, tomato, lettuce, crisp bacon strips and American cheese is sandwiched between griddled buns, served with ridged potato chips on the side. Regulars drop in for lunch at the counter or back patio, and veterans know to add grilled onions to their orders.

Eating at Bill’s is like stepping into a time machine and going to the ‘60s. I’m pretty sure the burger grill has not been cleaned since 1965 and all those juicy seasonings are right there flavoring up those burgers today. Bill does simple burgers and he does them exceptionally well. No frills here – but that’s the beauty of it. Oh and this isn’t Burger King… and you can’t have it your way.

You guys. This is the best hamburger in Los Angeles. There's really not up for debate anymore, and if you've had the burger at Bill & Hiroko's you would know why. This barebones, road-side joint regularly delivers on deliciousness and uncompromising tastiness.
