Tops in Town – Burgers

myBurbank finalBurger Reviews

myBurbank reviews different burgers in Burbank. Our staff picks burgers that they would like to review and do not tell the owner or staff in advance to get the best possible result on a daily basis for our readers. Our reviewer will then rate the burger into one or four categories: Tops In Town (Outstanding), On The Marquee (Really Good), Could Use A Rewrite (Average or Slightly Below) and Don’t Quit Your Day Job (Poor). Any burger that achieves a “Tops in Town” rating will receive a framed certificate announcing their selection. If you are an owner and do not feel your review is fair, please email us at and we will consider another trip in at a time or our choosing.

What makers a good burger? According to our ‘Burger Dude’ it’s an easy question but tough to answer. “There are some major components such as the meat (handmade patties are ALWAYS preferable to frozen, preformed), then there is the bun (never want to have a self destructing bun or one that is to small for the burger). Cheese is important (a good cheddar!) and the condiments needs to bring out the flavor (what you don’t want is a salad on your burger).  All that together with price, atmosphere, accompaniments and all around vibe (yes, I said vibe!) are all part of the experience of looking forwards to a great burger.  I will tell it as I taste it and will hold no punches for anyone anywhere!”

One thought on “Tops in Town – Burgers

  1. Esther

    I just read the review in regard to ‘Better Fresh Burger’ and disagree completely. The writer was correct on the issue about parking, however, as mentioned, there is parking on Clark. With that said, I find it a bit useless to have someone that does not have a taste for Mexican food, write a review on a Mexican feel restaurant (which is funny because besides the cheese, there is nothing “Mexican” about this place-weird). Additionally, their menu is basic and what you see is what you get. At about $3 a burger, did you really expect to have your burger made to your liking? It’s $3 bucks! Take it or leave it!

    Luckily, everyone does not share the opinion of this writer as business seems to be booming! Every time I go the parking lot is full. Needless to say, I love their food. As mentioned, their menu is tiny, but one cannot go wrong with a great meal costing less than $10. Besides their delicious food, their impeccable customer service has everyone leaving with a smile. I am a huge fan of small businesses, and I feel like we need more of these businesses in Burbank.
