We have scouted all of SoCal for the best burgers around and we’ve come up with this epic list of burgers that EVERYONE must try in Southern California. Get ready to have your mouth start watering!
1. Soda and Swine -- San DIego
Have you ever had a beef meatball burger? You'd better try one at Soda and Swine to complete your burger bucket list. In addition to beef meatballs, the Burger Special is layered with fried jalapeños to give it a little kick, pepper jack cheese for a pop of wow, and chipotle mayo for another zing of spiciness to make your mouth go wild. Must. Try. Burger Special.
2. Burger Parlor -- Fullerton
If you love the flavor of avocado, bacon, onions, peppers and arugula, you're going to love the Kali burger at Burger Parlor. The toppings are out of this world, but it all starts with the quality beef patty sourced from Omaha, Nebraska that's tender, juicy and beyond flavorful. This burger sure packs a lot of punch!
3. Petit Trois -- Los Angeles
Big Mec! Get it? Of course you do. You'd never know the most decadent burger in SoCal is hiding inside this French restaurant in an unassuming section of Los Angeles. You'll need a knife and a fork for this beauty. You may also need to take out a loan as this burger will cost you 18 bucks, but it's totally worth it. It's towering with two four-ounce patties of the highest quality beef you've ever tasted, smothered with caramelized onions, a house-made aioli, all between freshly baked buns. Yumm!
4. Eureka!Burger -- Redlands and other SoCal locations
It's hard to pick a favorite burger at Eureka because they're all incredibly delicious. But if we had to pick just one, we'd go for the Cowboy Burger anytime. Crisp shoestring onion rings, tasty bacon, a thick slice of cheddar and a perfect spread of beer barbecue sauce makes this the real stand-out.
5. Republique -- Los Angeles
The Dry-Aged Beef Burger will have your taste buds watering the minute you take your first bit. Dripping with house-made sauce and caramelized onions for the perfect touch of sweetness, this burger is out of this world.
6. Tyler's Burgers -- Palm Springs
Closed for its annual summer break now, you'll have to wait until September 2nd to devour one of their tasty burgers. Mark your calendar and start counting down because the big day is almost here. Which burger should be first on your bucket list? You can't go wrong with any of them, but this bacon burger stuffed with all the fixin's, including a healthy slice of fresh avocado, has our mouths watering right this minute.
7. DogHaus -- Multiple locations in SoCal and beyond
There are so many reasons why the Freiburger at DogHaus should be on everyone's bucket list. For starters, it all starts with the buns -- sweet Hawaiian rolls top the burger instead of an ordinary and boring bun. Inside you'll find the burger stacked with coleslaw, french fries, a fried egg, and a slice of American cheese. Do you think you can handle all that flavor inside one burger? You betcha!
