Beeps

Beeps brings me back.  This little 1950's style burger trailer was a regular staple of my adolescence.  Just a mere few blocks from my dance studio, I have fond memories of many a Saturday trip over to the burger shack in between classes and rehearsals.  It always held a certain taboo charm for me.  We shouldn't be scarfing burgers between battements, but Beeps was just too good!





It's one of those wonderful places that is just so cheesy it's brilliant.  Located in the heart of the valley, the tiny restaurant is always blaring the 1950's tunes and the walls are covered with semi-lame paraphernalia (a'la the Elvis / James Dean display pictured above.)  The service is slow and the menu hasn't changed in ages, even though the joint has been there for over 50 years.  And while I remember the burger tasting better when I was a love-lorn teen, I actually thought it was still pretty good.

It's basic.  Meat, lettuce, tomato, pickle, mayo and ketchup.  It's a bit on the dry side, and the meat is mediocre, but for $3.75, I'd say it's a bargain.  I really enjoyed this burger.  It's simple, it's classic and it tastes like the burgers of my youth.  

And now, the scores:

Meatiness: 3
Succulentiousness: 4
Bun: 2
Flavor: 4   
Stay-togetherness: 5
Joint: 4
