For all the best burgers is Los Angeles’ talk that gets thrown around the Southern California blogosphere, you’re not likely to hear about many spots outside the city limits. But if The Lab Brewing Company in Agoura Hills has their way, that’ll change soon enough.

From now through Wednesday night, The Lab is offering up a Top 10 burger challenge to anyone willing to stop in. The idea is simple: try their signature Lab Burger, and if you’re not convinced that it’s one of the ten best beef and bun combinations you’ve had in Los Angeles, they won’t make you pay a dime for it. Sound like a tasty deal? Keep reading.

The eponymous burger is ground in house from a combination of Wagyu and sirloin beef, plus caramelized onions, gruyere and blue cheeses, and a hefty tuft of arugula. Seem familiar? Now, whether or not the Lab Burger is the Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde to the famous Father’s Office creation remains to be seen by anyone willing to take a ride up the 101. And if you’re going that far, I'm sure the guys at The Lab wouldn't mind if you stuck around for a housemade pint or two.

The ‘best burger or its free’ deal is only running through this Wednesday, but the Lab Burger itself will continue on inside the restaurant for the foreseeable future. And for any of you mischievous folks just looking to take advantage of a free burger, come prepared: not only will they want to hear your better burger list, they’ll also make you swear to the hamburger gods that you aren’t just in it for the free meal. Trust us: you do not want to anger the hamburger gods.
