Here in Long Beach, we’re spoiled with a smorgasbord of delicious and culturally diverse cuisine. But sometimes, a burger really hits the spot. To help you prepare for National Hamburger Day on May 28th, here are some of our favorite burger spots around Long Beach.
Looking for a burger that will completely change your outlook on life? Head on over to Crack, a hidden gem that’s inconspicuously located inside the gift shop of the Bixby Village Golf Course. That’s right… You may be thinking, “what an odd location to grab a bite to eat” but the word around town is that they serve up the best burger in Long Beach! Try sinking your teeth into the Dirty Burger or the Bacon Jam Burger, the two highest-rated burgers on the menu. (714)561-7165 – 6180 Bixby Village Dr Long Beach, CA
Hands down, the most popular burgers at MVP’s are the George Foreman III Burger and the George Foreman V Burger. The George Foreman III Burger is no-frills bacon and cheeseburger, with two 1/3 lb. patties. Can’t go wrong. The George Foreman V Burger gets a little bit fancier by adding avocado, bacon, and cheese onto those two delicious 1/3 lb. patties on a sesame bun with their famous Cajunaise dressing. You can dine in or carry out your burgers, or hang out next door at O’Connell for a beer and to catch a game, and they will bring your food over to you there.

While Dave’s Burgers is located in a gas station parking lot, don’t let that deter you from stopping in for a delicious cheeseburger for National Burger Day. Your options include a regular classic cheeseburger or the larger Jumbo Cheeseburger that comes with grilled onions, tomato, and lettuce. They are also famous for their Jumbo Cubby burger that has a sliced hot dog on it–and also cheese so it “counts” for this special day. This isn’t a “choose your toppings and temperature” type burger joint, but it still packs tons of delicious flavor. (562) 424-3340 – 3396 Atlantic Ave Long Beach, CA
