Tired of eating fast-food burgers that are quick to make, without much thought or originality? The Western Sun has hand-picked three burger spots, ranging from casual to fine-dine that will tempt your taste-buds.
* TK Burger
Located directly across from the beach on 110 Pacific Coast Highway, their humble, but signature taste will have you coming back whether you visit the beach or not. With prices that are great for any beach bum, from $5 to $6, and a hang-loose atmosphere, TK Burger is a surf city classic. -Emilee Maciel
* The Counter
Freedom of choice is what The Counter is all about, leaving the power of building-your-own burger in your hands. Located on 1104 Irvine Ave. in Newport Beach, instead of receiving a menu, you get a clipboard and check off your choice of patty, topping, and bun. A very unique burger experience for only $7 to $12. -Tiffany Pham
* Café Beau Soleil
Café Beau Soleil, located at Fashion Island, stands out because they offer burgers on a French cuisine menu. Prices are reasonable, from $12 to $15, for these fancy, juicy burgers. Red meat is not the only option as your burger; choose from salmon, veggie, or turkey. -Tiffany Pham
