|There's never been a cook-off for the best Huntington Beach burgers but there are two that we drool for. One is the In N Out burger with grilled onions. It is cooked fresh, made-to-order, and is affordable. It comes in under $5.
The second, heartier hamburger that has all the works is Ruby's BBQ burger. It includes crunchy onion rings, two slices of melted cheese, lettuce, tomato, bacon and BBQ sauce. For some reason they keep trying to put mayo on it so we always have to remember to ask them to hold the mayo (it doesn't need it). It costs under $10 and comes with a plate of french fries. Ruby's is a 40's style diner with red vinyl booths and forever Pacific Ocean views on the end of the Huntington Beach Pier.
With either the In N Out burger or the Ruby's burger, add a shake (Ruby's has exceptional malts), and you have ecstasy!
Other noteworthy hamburgers around town come from a variety of restaurants. Nearly every restaurant offers them so there has to be something worth mentioning. Not all burgers are the same.
