The Classy Burger #BurgerMonth

I was trying to come up with a creatively awesome title for this burger, but really…it’s just plain classy.

Reuben Sandwich, Kicked Up a Notch

One of our favorite things to do when we go to LA, is to have a lunch at Canter’s Deli! It’s a landmark…a classic. The “mature” wait staff has been there for years, the lines are long and the food big and good ....more
