12 Burgers Better than “The Best”

National Geographic recently named the best burgers in America, bestowing the crown upon the LA establishment The Apple Pan. Now, what business does Nat Geo have rating burgers? I’ll believe them if they tell me that a cheetah is the #1 animal, because it is. But, regardless of their qualifications, their list of the top 10 (which includes many CA natives) is causing quite a stir. LAist offers a list of LA’s 12 burgers than can easily best the burger at The Apple Pan.
