Following a recommendation from the book and DVD Hamburger America by George Motz, a state by state guide to some of the best burgers in the country, the Fries With That Shake blog visited Irv’s Burgers right here in West Hollywood.

As most people know, Irv’s is a legendary landmark here in Weho, and they lived up to their reputation on this visit.

Here’s an excerpt…

One eatery mentioned in the book that I have been dying to try is Irv’s Burgers, located in West Hollywood, CA.

The story of this Route 66 staple gets me every time. As Motz tells it, it was owned by Irvin Gendis from 1978-2000 and then bought by Sonia Hong in 200o, who still runs it today. Even before it was Irv’s, it was a popular burger stand on Route 66.

When Peet’s Coffee threatened to take over this choice real estate spot in 2005 the neighborhood rallied around this little burger stand and it was declared a cultural landmark.

    If you ever come across the record album from Linda Ronstadt’s 1978 Living in the USA, open it. The middle artwork is a giant shot of Irv’s with Linda and the band. Very cool photo.
