Of course, with the recent advent of high end hamburger restaurants in neighboring Los Angeles (IE. 25 Degrees), one on the lookout for nice hamburgers shouldn't have to look too far. However, the weight of the check might stop the customer dead in his tracks; for this we have Knowlwood, a casual, seemingly family oriented burger stand claiming to have the ""World's Best Hamburger"" at a price that most would assume fair. I ordered their classic burger, and I can say with much confidence that aside from a nicely executed kobe/wagyu beef burger, this is the best hamburger I have ever tasted in terms of meat. The beef is always hot, but not to the point of burning but melting in your mouth. In most cases, a well done is perfect and not dry, to the point where the juices are still locked in and seem to escape with every tantalizing b ite. The other varieties on the original hamburger are made with the same, excellent ground beef as the original, so I'd suggest some experimentation; produce is not Knowlwood's strong suit as far as it comes to making a hamburger, but it does deliver an expected freshness of quality. If you like hamburgers, this would be an excellent place to try what truly in my mind is ""The World's Best Hamburger.""
Pros: Delivers on its claim as "The World's Best Hamburger"
Cons: The ambience lacks class for a burger so divine, but that's not why you're here.
