The Fix Burger

The Fix Burger
2520 Hyperion Ave
Los Angeles

I have passed by The Fix Burger in Silver Lake so many times, but never stopped in until a warm Friday night. The Fix Burger is between two restaurants that I have reviewed before, Tomato Pie Pizza Joint and Cafe Ravo.

I'll be direct and to the point, The Fix Burger is the best burger in LA. Nobody comes close. Don't believe the hype of the other gourmet burger places in LA like Umami Burger in Hollywood or Umami Burger on La Brea or Father's Office, the burgers at The Fix Burgers are the best in LA.

Onion rings, $4.99. These onions rings could have been good, but they were a bit too greasy. The batter, which has some parsley, is wonderful!! Nice, light, and crunchy. The onion were fresh. This isn't some frozen onions. They are made by fresh. But, either the oil wasn't hot enough or they were sitting under heat lamps too long, because these onion rings were too greasy.

Silver Lake Burger, $9.69, lettuce, tomato, bacon, mayo, and 1000 island dressing with a turkey pattie.

But who cares about side orders in a burger place!! I want to see how The Fix Burgers' stand up. Well, they are awesome! The best in LA. The turkey patty was juicy, flavorful and had a nice crust. The huge strips of bacon were perfectly cooked and the toppings were so fresh. The 1000 island dressing had a mild flavor and not much relish as other 1000 island dressing, but added a great flavor to the burger.

Service is good. The young lady who took my order was nice, though not super friendly. The onion rings came first, though I would have preferred to have them served with the burger. But, that's nitpicking. The burgers are great and I will be back to The Fix Burgers and try a beef pattie.
