Before/After a Surf

1) TK Burgers

TK's charbroiled burgers, voted the best burger in L.A. and O.C. in 2011, has been serving up fresh, never frozen burgers and signature locally baked egg buns in a fun and funky "backyard barbecue" atmosphere for 25 years. A simple menu in a SoCal surf shack along Pacific Coast Highway is what's made them the local burger standard.
