Kickin’ it at Fatburger

Considered by many, FatBurger is an institution in Los Angeles, and just as you would expect from its moniker, Fatburger serves large burgers of several different varieties, a choice of fries or onion rings, plus, all-natural shakes made with real ice cream.

The creamy shakes are to die for. And after I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself I’m now in a great mood to write about their terrific venue.

Trying to eat a little healthier, I choose their Turkey burger which surprisingly was served on a whole wheat bun; it was juicy, and full of mouth watering flavors. The toppings of lettuce, tomatoes and mayo, were fresh and crisp. The fries were the large Texas style kind, hot from the fryer.

Sitting down at the very 50’s like diner booth, I was impressed at the chrome, glass, red seats, and faux black countertops made for a trip down memory lane–Bauhaus meets Happy Days!

While I enjoyed my burger and fries, I perused the funny posters hanging on the walls:

Started in Los Angeles in 1952, Fatburger has been around for almost 60 years. They started expanding in 1991, starting in Las Vegas, and now reach as far as the Midwest and East Coast. In fact, on a recent trip, I saw the first (at least I think it’s the first) Fatburger in Columbia, Maryland.

For all the press about obesity, burgers don’t seem to be losing their American appeal. I know they’re still a favorite of mine.

Who can resist the smell and taste of a juicy burger cooking on the grill, especially one made from fresh ground beef, like Fatburger’s?

In moderation, a FatBurger can’t be bad. To the contrary, they’re terrific and the store’s ambience is cool.

If you have a Fatburger close by, and want to spend a little extra on a fresh, juicy burger, I wholeheartedly recommend this famous establishment. It just might be “The Last Great Hamburger Stand."

      I haven’t been in one in a long time so I had no idea how funny their posters are! But I must confess…at one time I was totally addicted to their chili fries! :)

      Thanks for a great post!

      @Mark Yes, it might be. Their turkey burger was very good.

      @Henie I haven’t tried their chili fries, but maybe I’ll have to now…………….:)
