Never frozen beef comes in 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, and 1 pound sizes on made from scratch kaiser buns that are baked in house with a DIY toppings bar.
I proselytize about this place to anyone who would listen. Once, I even convinced a van full of Boeing engineers to take a detour from their ride home to try the burgers there.
This is a franchised chain and I’ve been to four locations in the great LA area and now the one in Saskatoon. Despite having what I consider the best meat and buns I’ve ever had, the stores are folding and here is why: the restaurants are huge, barn sized affairs complete with their own bakery and butcher shop, arcade games hall, and indoor/outdoor seating.
Here are the goods: the in store meat shop and bakery supply the kitchen with fresh ingredients. The burger patties aren’t seasoned until just before they hit the grill. You choose the size of the burger, ranging from 1/3 to 1 full pound of meat. The fixings are self-service and the toppings bar, complete with even pump cheese for nachos, would rival any salad bar. Unrelated to the hamburger but noteworthy is the self-service fountain drinks, coffee, and that the place is licensed.
