Best Burgers Long Beach Area #1 Rated

For those unfamiliar, The Hangout has the best burgers in the Long Beach area for value and service. We're 15 mins away and worth the drive. Wash it down with a fresh craft beer on draft.

You might be wondering:

There is ten (10) succulent hamburgers with tasty toppings! Sirloin beef is ground into a patty, Fresh cut onions, pickles, fresh cheese, and tomato. It's an experience! Price Range: $$12-16

Had a bad day? We can change that. How about choice beef stacked between a toasted bun with crisp fries? Our French fries are hand cut from Yukon potatoes.

Our garlic parmesan French Fries are pretty special. Some say they're like gold! Enjoy crisp French fries married in roasted garlic oil, fresh parsley with fresh parmesan cheese. Your second option is Blue French Fries. These french fries are topped with fresh bleu cheese and crispy bacon!

Mega Burgers! The other guy and I had ones which were about five inches tall. Very tasty! The location allowed for a nice view of the beach and the restaurant was open and had enough space to allow for conversation.

 Louis Lassen circa 1907

Who Invented the Hamburger?

A question of asked is who invented the hamburger? The answer depends on who you ask. Unfortunately, written evidence is scare to definitively settle the matter. It's generally agreed by historians that the hamburger was invented between 1880 and 1904. It became known and popularized at The World's Fair St. Louis in 1904.

  • Claim 1. Fletcher Davis, Athens, Texas.


Dallas Morning News Reporter Frank X. Tolbert seems certain that Davis invented the hamburger sandwich and popularized it at the 1904 World's Fair. A pottery tradesman, Davis got into the food business as pottery demand slowed by opening a small lunch spot.

  • Claim 2. Louis Lassen, New Haven Connecticut


Louis Lunch is currently the oldest hamburger restaurant still operating in the U.S. According to the story, a customer was in hurry and was accommodated by left overs of ground steak trimmings between slices of bread. The library of Congress substantiates that it was first served in 1895. Lassen insisted no condiment be served stating is was misuse.

  • Claim 3. Menches Brothers, Akron, OH.

According to the Menches Bros website, they state "the only restaurant that can claim the “Original Hamburger” and the “Original Ice Cream Cone”. According to the families claim, it was invented in Hamburg, NY at Erie County Fair. According to sources, the brothers ran out of pork for the sausages they were selling. Faced with nothing to sell, they turned to ground beef.
