A former pop-up gone permanent, this smashburger operation bounced around the South Bay and Long Beach before landing in a breezy space with lots of seating a block from the ocean in Hermosa Beach. Burgers here are double-stacked by default, though they’ll probably let you do a single if you ask nicely. The not-too-thin patties have a nice seasoned crust that droops over the edge of the toasted potato bun, while the mayo-heavy special sauce and pickles add some tang.  The best part, though, is the bird’s nest of griddled, crispy, almost-charred onions they smoosh into the patty. We also appreciate that their burgers are neatly wrapped in paper—presentation points—and arrive looking composed enough to meet your parents. Order a side of tots and a local craft beer on draft to complete the set.
