Sleek leather booths and mirrored walls make this one of the swankier burger joints you'll find in L.A., but it's the colossal, juicy patties piled with toppings—and not the décor—that are the real draw here. Situated on the ground floor of the Roosevelt Hotel, 25 Degrees has a menu that draws dedicated hamburger lovers from across town. You can craft your own or choose from unique creations like the Number Four, made with yellowfin tuna, butter lettuce and crispy fried onions.
What is it about a great burger restaurant that makes you a fan for life? Is it the comfort in finding a regular order, the one that rolls off your tongue as soon as you walk up to the counter? Is it the knowledge that this spot—your spot—has been your go-to place for years? Is it not just the burger, but the milkshakes and the French fries and the friendly service (or not-so-friendly, if that's your thing) that comes with the place? Los Angeles is rife with fantastic burger restaurants, so we went out in search of the very best and whittled them down to these 25 burger joints that made us die-hard fans.
