Best Buns in LA
How do you like your buns? Firm yet soft to the touch? Maybe, you’re more into the hot and juicy style of buns. The kind you can really sink your teeth into. Either way, what’s not to love about a delicious pair of buns? Especially, when they’re hot and ready, just waiting to be stuffed with a big piece of juicy meat right in the middle of them. I’m talking about hamburger buns, of course! Below, are a couple of my favorite places to grab a burger in LA and trust me, these two restaurants are serving up the best buns in town!
21150 Pacific Coast Hwy.
When I lived in Malibu, I used to visit here once a week without fail, and it still holds up as one of my favorite burgers in LA. The hamburger at Duke’s is so mouth watering and super juicy that it’s like an explosion of flavorful burger bliss going off in your mouth. It goes perfectly with a nice and strong Bahama Mama and I can’t think of a more perfect way to unwind and relax after a long day of fun at the beach. During Happy Hour between five and seven they have exciting hula dancers who put on a great show, as you soak in the surfer vibes with that delicious burger and drinks, all while watching a spectacular sunset over the ocean.
Barney’s Gourmet Hamburgers
Brentwood Country Mart
225 26th St. Brentwood, CA
Located in the stylish and trendy Brentwood Country Mart, Barney’s Gourmet Hamburgers is easily my second favorite place to grab a hamburger in LA. After moving away from Malibu, I needed to find a new place near Santa Monica to satisfy my desires for all things meaty and juicy, and I was thrilled when I finally found Barney’s. Unlike Dukes, where they only offer one type of hamburger, Barney’s specializes in a variety of gourmet burger options, all of which are simply out of this world, melt in your mouth good. My personal favorite is the Guacamole Burger which comes loaded with sour cream and jack cheese. Yum! It’s a great place for a meal after a day of shopping at the Mart and you never know who you may see, as so many celebrities hang out and shop there too!
