The thought of an 8 oz burger sounds off-putting for some reason. Why advertise the size of the meat? Like they say, it’s what is in it that matters. Well, 8 oz Burger Bar has hit it spot on and at reasonable prices. In a homey bar-like atmosphere worlds away from the Melrose that intersects Robertson, the burgers here deserve a pilgrimage. The patty consists of a blend of four different cuts of meat that have been dry-aged in the restaurant's Himalayan salt-tiled cellar.

When you get the plump burger, squish it a bit to get the juices in the bun and enjoy. The burgers are about $10 (they also have fish, but, like, who cares?). You can add cheese for a dollar and choose from other toppings as well, some complimentary, some for a dollar. The drinks are only $8 and they have a butt-load of beers that are reasonably priced. The fries are great. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the service can be a pinch slow, but at these prices, that can be tolerated.
