LA Weekly's Description

This burger joint on the border of South Los Angeles and Compton is perhaps most famous for its Hawkins Special, which, weighing in at five pounds, consists of three one-pound burger patties, cheese, bacon, chilies, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, fried eggs, pastrami, mustard, a butterflied hot dog, pickles and mayo. (Phew!) But the 29-year-old restaurant is also home to one of the area's largest burritos, delicious chili-cheese fries and an outstanding double cheeseburger. They’re open for breakfast too, offering up pancakes, French toast and eggs from 7 a.m. on during the week and 8 a.m. on over the weekends.

    A Los Angeles burger institution that started out as a food stand in 1939. Fat Cheeseburger (Angus chuck beef patty topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles on a plain or whole wheat bun).

    The best burgers hands down. The Turkey burger fresh and seasoned very good it was awesome. The chicken sandwich was the bomb.com
