How much do you love burgers?

Maybe you know all the secret menu items available at In-n-Out, or maybe you're a regular fixture at Father's Office. Who's got the best burger and just what elements make a burger the best is an oft-debated topic here on LAist and elsewhere. Are the determining factors the toppings? Kind of meat? Affordability? History? Size? The variables are multifold, I know.

I like burgers. I'm no crazy burger maven, though, and can generally satisfy the basic craving for meat-on-bun action at Fatburger or am happy to dress up my burger in some finery at The Counter. But since it's opening last year, I've been intrigued by the frequently discussed burgers offered up at 25 Degrees, a swank 24-hour burger joint located inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. So when the opportunity came up for me to accept their invitation to taste test their wares, I jumped at the chance. I brought a teenager with me--who knows better about this food genre than that age group?--and we both gleefully assembled our own $15 burgers.
