5 Tasty Ways to Celebrate National Burger Day

If the home-grilled burgers you tasted this Memorial Day weekend left you wanting for more, get ready to celebrate National Burger Day tomorrow (May 28) with these five unparalleled patties.

The PCB at Plan Check Kitchen + Bar

The PCB at Plan Check Kitchen + Bar.

The PCB burger is proof that a gourmet upgrade doesn’t mean condiments have to be left behind. Plan Check Kitchen + Bar puts a creative spin on traditional toppings with the likes of Americanized dash cheese, ketchup leather (think of it as a fancy Fruit Roll-Up that tastes like ketchup), and schmaltz onions. It’s as delicious as it is modern. 1800 Sawtelle Blvd., Los Angeles, 310-288-6500

The 7 oz. Lazy Ox Burger at Lazy Ox Canteen

The Lazy Ox burger boasts a perfectly charred outside and a nice pink center. It’s adorned with a generous amount of white cheddar and whole grain mustard, then set between a poppy seed-dusted bun. 241 S. San Pedro St., Los Angeles, 213-626-5299

The Comme Ça Burger at Comme Ça

Comme Ça Burger at Comme Ça.

Hailed as one of the best burgers in town, the Comme Ça Burger is simplicity in its most delicious form: prime beef and Vermont cheddar. In celebration of National Burger Month, Comme Ça will serve their classic burger plus an additional three to five new burger specials every Tuesday. The chefs will also turn to diners to describe their perfect burgers and incorporate the winning burger into the menu in June. 8479 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood, 323-782-1104

Truffle Shuffle Burger at Stout

This fresh ground-beef patty is covered in mushrooms, melty brie cheese, and truffle aioli. Take a bite and you’ll see why this truffle iteration puts your average mushroom-topped burger to shame. 111 N. Santa Monica Blvd., Santa Monica, 310-260-8679

Wood-Grilled Burger at Little Dom’s
