The Hollywood original opened in Santa Monica in 2013 and brought with it excellent burgers, great craft beer, and a space where you can feel truly free from all the trappings of downtown. As far as the burgers go, our favorite is the brie-and-fig-jam-topped Six Weeker, but you can’t really go wrong with any of them - particularly when they’re all half-off during Happy Hour.
