The search for the perfect cheeseburger may take you on a voyage to the southern climes of San Gabriel.

Clearman’s North Woods Inn San Gabriel and Clearman’s Galley are serious contenders with a steakhouse cheeseburger during Pasadena Cheeseburger Week, Jan. 26-31.

The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce organized and promotes Pasadena Cheeseburger Week to celebrate Pasadena as the recognized birthplace of the Cheeseburger at Sternberger’s Rite Spot, which was located at 1500 West Colorado in 1924. The celebration is a part of California Restaurant Month.

Clearman’s North Woods Inn San Gabriel is serving its “off-the-menu burger” Southwest Burger – a hand-pressed steakhouse burger with chipotle mayo, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions and avocado on a brioche bun.

Guests come to the landmark log-cabin restaurant with “snow” on its roof at the corner of Huntington Drive and Rosemead Boulevard for juicy steaks, fresh seafood, enormous salads and signature cheese bread. The warm woodsy atmosphere with stained glass, oil paintings and period lamps is a cozy retreat for a quiet dinner for two, as well as family celebrations.

Clearman’s Galley will serve its famous flame-broiled burger with fresh lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, and thousand island dressing.

Also known as The Boat, Clearman’s Galley offers an informal atmosphere along with a wide selection of family-friendly menu items. More than 50 years after serving its first hamburger, Clearman’s Galley is more popular than ever with spacious seating, full-service bar and a 16’x12’ Super High Clarity LED HDTV and more than 25 flat screen HDTVs for sports fans to watch their favorite teams.
