When it comes to food Whittier residents take it very serious. Whittier is now undeniably a foodie destination. A few weeks ago we had you the people of Whittier vote for your favorite pizza joint and the votes came rolling in! Pizzamania won in a landslide. so we decided to put the power back in your hands and we asked you on Facebook and Instagram, who makes the best burger in Whittier? Essentially if I had a fifty dollar bill in my hand and asked you to take me to lunch to your favorite burger joint, where would we go? Here are the results.

1. Norm's Famous Charbroiled Burgers

Norm's has been a staple here in Whittier for quite sometime. Serving up charbroiled goodness seven days a week. Whittier locals can smell the aroma of these charbroiled burgers for miles and miles. Norm's faithful following will tell you it is not just about the burgers. Norm's is also known for their delicious pastrami sandwiches, onion rings, shakes, breakfast burritos and so much more. Congratulations Norm's you are Whittier's # 1 choice for best burger!

Located in the perfect spot Norm's in
Whittier has been making people happy for years.
Is it the sauce or the shredded lettuce? Maybe it is the crispy bacon or pickles? I have no idea what makes Norm's burgers taste so darn good but they just do.

2. Big D's Burger

If you claim to be a serious burger eater
in Whittier you definitely know

5. Rick's Drive In & Out

They say, "save the best for last" and for some of you Rick's is the best and will always be the best. Rick's has been flipping burgers longer than some of you have been alive. I mean for real, I knew a dude who did fifteen years in jail and when he got out he asked, "Hey bro, is Ricks still open?" and that was back in 1984! Rick's has been a staple here in the Uptown Whittier area for 43 years! 
The Whittier location is the "Original" numero uno!

Rick's Drive In & Out
7254 Greenleaf Ave
Whitter, CA 90602

When you eat a Rick's burger you are
eating a piece of Whittier history.

When you have been doing something for 43 years you are going to have some ups and downs but Rick's has stood the test of time. The people of Whittier have spoken and they say Rick's belongs in the Top 5 Best Burger in Whittier 43 years later right here right now in 2017  

When done right this burger is
close to the top!
Owner Rick Tewes put vision, hard work and heart in to his business and made Rick's Drive In & Out a delicious part of the Whittier landscape. Uptown Whittier would not have the same feel if Rick's wasn't posted up on the corner of Penn and Greenleaf Ave. I had the honor of meeting Rick Tewes and shake his hand. He is the most humble man you will ever meet. It really does something to you when you stand next to greatness. 

That one time I went full NERD when I met the
Whittier Legend and Ricks Owner
