started Hampton's more than 20 years ago. This popular hamburger restaurant
is only a few blocks away from the Chinese
Theatre, and not far from the Paramount
studios. As a result, it attracts a high number of celebs, writers, agents,
producers, and studio hands.
Recently, the restaurant changed hands, but regardless of who owns it, everyone agrees that Hampton's serves what may be the best gourmet burgers in town - and the most unusual.
Besides the traditional combinations of cheese, lettuce & tomato, Hampton's eccentric menu includes burgers with a choice of 34 different toppings, including such unusual options as caviar, peanut butter, sour plum jam, pepper sauce, broccoli, etc. And in addition to regular hamburger, you can choose ostrich, venison, buffalo, beefalo, salmon, turkey, veggie, fish, chicken breast, or even gator! Over 400 hamburger variations in all. And you can even get a glass of wine to go with your rare burger.
As you might expect,
Hampton's is a bit more pricey than most hamburger places; burgers at this
full-service restaurant will cost you about $6.95, and for dinner for two
will set you back about $28. They are open seven days a week from
11:30 AM to 10 PM (an hour later on Fridays and Saturdays).
Getting there: For the Hollywood location, from Hollywood & Vine, head west on Hollywood Boulevard (about three quarters of a mile) to Highland Avenue. Turn left (south) on Highland and go about one half mile south, to between Sunset Boulevard and Fountain Avenue. Hampton's will be on your left (east) side.
