If you want to experience a staple in the LA burger scene you must try The Bucket. With a great draft selection the sides are great and come in a good portion to feed 2-3 as a side. Depending on the appetite of course. The Julio is the best burger on the menu. Its something about the sauce. Every burger... More

Many moons ago when we lived in Highland Park, we would hit The Bucket for a burger fix. The best in town, without a doubt. But as great as were the cold draft beer, the burgers and garlic fries even better was talking with the chef/owner, Julio. A delightful character with no equal. He has passed on but it is... More

Don't feel intimidated if you see a bunch of bikers, nobody will bother you, because everybody there is busy eating the delicious burgers! I go to this place at least once a month, because the burgers are divine.

this place might just have the best burger in Eagle Rock. Which says a lot since Eagle Rock invented the Hamburger back in the 40's. It was better before it was painted and fixed up. In the old days you'd walk by it and never know it was there. Now it's all colorfull and Yupp't out. Maybe a new owner.... More
