Pacific Palisades Burger Named Best in Southland

LA Times selects Hank’s Burger at Hank’s Palisades as best burger in the region

By Dolores Quintana

Hank’s Palisades has been awarded the title of 2022 Best Burger Of The Southland by the Los Angeles Times. On their Instagram page in their announcement, the restaurant states that they are very excited and truly honored by this award. 

We asked Executive Chef Isaias Peña about this award and about his creations at Hank’s via emailed statement and here’s what he had to say. 

How did you feel about winning 2022 Best Burger of the Southland from the LA Times?

“The Hank’s team and I are honored to accept such an amazing victory and we hope many more awards to come. We also want to thank all of our guests and everyone in our community that voted.”

Describe the Double Diamond Burger in your own words for our readers.

The Double Diamond Burger is a perfect beef blend of Wagyu, brisket and short rib accompanied by Tillamook cheddar, caramelized onions, butter lettuce, Roma tomatoes and Hank’s sauce on a potato bun.

Is there anything else that you would like our readers to know about the Burgers or Hank’s?

Hank’s Restaurant at Palisades Village hands down has the best burgers around. We offer multiple different burgers along with the winning Double Diamond and we have a new menu that offers something for everyone, including steaks, seafood, and a selection of small and shared plates, so please come visit us!
