LA Weekly's Description

Across the street from Hamburger Mary's, Irv's Burgers is a patch of unreconstructed California in the epicenter of sleek West Hollywood. Since 1950 it has been a redoubt of hand-cut french fries and double cheeseburgers, pastrami sandwiches, onion rings and tuna melts, and its fans seem almost to live at the place, reading the trades, meeting with groups of friends, stapling up posters advertising readings at A Different Light and Fatboy Slim CDs. Irv's current proprietor, Sonia Hong, is nice - just totally, manically nice; she personalizes almost every paper plate and to-go bag with scrawled notes. The hamburgers are totally, infinitely customizable, and if you've been going there a while, you probably have a variation or a private sandwich configuration named after you, a sandwich that is irrevocably yours.

    This unique santa monica blvd institution has been voted over and over one of the best burger joints in America. But be prepared its a dive! Nothing fancy, just a very well done classic burger and fries served up by some of the nicest people youll ever meet. oh and every plate is personalized with a marker drawing and a "just for you"
