California Burger – it’s not as simple as it seems. While everyone can picture a perfect California burger, what should it really have inside?

A “California burger” can mean one of two things. In the earlier half of the 20th century, a California burger came topped with lettuce, onion and tomato. Today, these toppings are ubiquitous, but at a time when California was known for having access to the freshest produce year round, a burger garnished with fresh vegetables came to be associated with the Golden State.

In 1961, due to customer appeals, “animal style” burgers (lettuce, mustard-grilled burgers, tomato, pickle, extra spread such as Thousand Island dressing, grilled onions, and so on) were born. The “3×3,” (three beef patties, lettuce, tomato, spread, three slices of American cheese, with or without onions) and “4×4” (four beef patties, lettuce, tomato, spread, four slices of American cheese, with or without onions) and “protein style” (burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun) followed.

A more recent trend, however, is for a California burger to come topped with avocado or guacamole. Enjoy a charbroiled burger from California’s iconic Lucky Boy with a helping of avocado or have it “breakfast style” with an egg on top.

No matter which way you want your burger, you can have it made to order at Lucky Boy. Grab a Chili Burger or delicious Turkey Burger with all the works or have a special burger with beef and pastrami.

For these and many more delicious options, visit Lucky Boy Burgers at 640 South Arroyo Parkway, Pasadena or 531 East Walnut Street, Pasadena.
