Here's a list of possibly the biggest and tastiest burgers in Los Angeles, some of which may be surprising.
(Los Angeles, CA) - This week is National Burger Week, which is actually a thing. And since we are Los Angeles, you know what that means — the best of the best, and the biggest of the best, because that’s the way things roll here.
But what's the point of going large if you don't know what to get?
It's like buying a king-sized bed and then only sleeping on one side. Or maybe you're just so hungry that a meat coma sounds like a perfectly reasonable option.
We've got a list of the biggest and most delicious burgers in Los Angeles.
Some of which may be surprising, some of which you have recommended to me here on Newsbreak, others of which you can thank us for later.
Oh, and there are fries. If you can possibly, these are monster burgers.
`#1 Hawkins House of Burgers
The biggest and best burger in Los Angeles - according to you, dear readers - is Hawkins House of Burgers in Watts. Thank you, thank you - It's a great recommendation!
It's so easy to agree: The burgers are made with fresh, never frozen meat that is hormone and antibiotic-free - Angus beef, Jennie O turkey, and Foster Farms chicken.
If you haven't been down south to try them yet, they're unlike any burger you've ever had, and they're ridiculously delicious.
You might need more than two hands: Check out this amazing "Leaning Tower of Watts."

#2 Easy Street Burgers
This smash burger style has chargrilled beef, onions, cheese, mustard and, an amazing special sauce.
The regular fries are also crispy. Double patties should be your minimum! Ask for extra pickles.
Food comes out quickly so there's no reason to avoid it here when it looks busy, and it gets crowded on the weekends.
They open Thursday to Sunday from 7 pm and are in the parking lot on the corner of Western and Romaine.

#3 The Fix Burger
This burger spot in Los Feliz serves amazing big burgers, including the Rodeo Burger with a patty that's cooked to perfection and topped with brioche bun, Homemade onion rings, 1/2 lbs high-quality Angus, BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, bacon, and mayo. The sauces they give you for fry dipping are all delicious.
The portions are huge, so I'd recommend not getting large fries if you're not so hungry because you might end up with leftovers - although the garlic fries are delicious, and so is the Oreo milkshake.
