Celebrate National Cheeseburger Day!

National Cheeseburger Day falls on Sunday, Sept. 18, this year, which is great, because you can spend the entire time eating cheeseburgers without work getting in the way. Which is our duty as Angelenos, since cheeseburgers were invented in this county. 

And the cheeseburger options around town are endless. We couldn't possibly list all of our favorites, so we present just a smattering of the best cheeseburgers around town. Let your tastebuds be your guide.

Any place where the standard burger is a double is OK by us. (Plus this one is high quality and very good.)

The Habit
Southern California is home to most of the world's excellent burger chains. The Habit is a smaller one, but it is a strong contender. Chargrilling gives the burgers here a different flavor than we're used to from restaurant burgers in SoCal. And the Habit doesn't skimp on pickles!

The options here are almost literally endless. (If you don't care to build your own, we recommend the Number One.) The excellent spiked milkshakes are fun, too.

There are two cheeseburger options here: the Belcampo, with white cheddar and caramelized onions, and the Fast, which is the restaurant's play on the In-N-Out burger. But with grass-fed beef, of course.

Hinano Cafe
An unpretentious beach burger classic at a classic beach bar. It comes with chips and mixed pickles, and can be gussied up with bacon and avocado, in true midcentury Westside fashion.
