Mo Better Burgers

Sometimes all you need in life is a simple burger—no crazy toppings, smashed patties, or puffy brioche buns. The burgers at Mo Better Burgers, a small strip mall spot in Hawthorne, are the pinnacle of that style. Imagine a burger you'd cook up in your backyard, made by someone with way more skills and without a "Kiss the Cook" apron. Mo Better tops their loosely packed, nicely seared patties with mayo, mustard, and grilled onions, delivering a lot of savoriness whether you choose the turkey or beef patty (both are great). You skip their old-school hard shell tacos here (they're fine), but don't miss out on the fresh-cut fries assertively seasoned with salt and pepper. And a cherry kool-aid, of course.
