Irv's Burgers | West Hollywood | American, Coffeehouse | Restaurant
Across the street from Hamburger Mary's, Irv's Burgers is a patch of unreconstructed California in the epicenter of sleek West Hollywood. Since 1950 it has been a redoubt of hand-cut french fries and double cheeseburgers, pastrami sandwiches, onion rings and tuna melts, and its fans seem almost to live at the place, reading the trades, meeting with groups of friends, stapling up posters advertising readings at A Different Light and Fatboy Slim CDs. Irv's current proprietor, Sonia Hong, is nice - just totally, manically nice; she personalizes almost every paper plate and to-go bag with scrawled notes. The hamburgers are totally, infinitely customizable, and if you've been going there a while, you probably have a variation or a private sandwich configuration named after you, a sandwich that is irrevocably yours.
