Hole in the Wall

It's leap day, that random bonus day we get every four years. It is also the final day of February - the end of my birthday month. What better way to celebrate 24 extra hours and cap off a really grand birthday run than a hole in the wall burger with friends?

Literally, a Hole in the Wall burger, a hidden gem behind the Winchell's on Santa Monica Boulevard near Sepulveda. (There is also a West Hollywood location.) Yes, I know I already had this month's burger at the Apple Pan. But, I'm redeeming a get-out-of-food-jail-free card because this burger sounds soooo good!

Their burger premise is the same as covered in posts from Slater's 50/50 (April, 2011) and The Counter (November, 2011): you build your own burger from a hearty list of fixins. I went with the Black Angus burger (8 oz. is the standard size) on a pretzel bun, with chipotle mayo spread, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, mustard, pickles and relish, and a bag of sweet potato fries. Yum!

They are cash only, and parking can be sketchy. Plan accordingly, because it would be a crime to miss out.
