Love Hour has become a fixture of LA's smashburger scene and for good reason. The edges of the patty here get nice and crispy, but unlike other smash spots, it’s not overly greasy, so the bun stays intact (that’s tougher to pull off than you think). They mostly keep their toppings simple: you choose between a single or a double (the double has the best meat-to-bun ratio), and then add your own condiments like you’re at a cookout. Find them at Smorgasburg on Sundays or at their order-at-the-counter bar in Koreatown. Weekends at their beer and wine spot can get pretty busy—expect a great patio, a bumping playlist, big birthday groups, and a free flow of people breezing through the walkway with burgers and bottles until midnight.
