Mo's Burger at L.A. Flea Market

4301 Riverside Drive
Burbank, CA 91505
(818) 845-3009

Mo's started as a brick and mortar in Burbank at the corner of Riverside and Rose in 1995.  I have eaten there several times with the S family, but haven't been in since I started food blogging, what four years ago? Or was it three? It was three. I actually passed my three year blogiversary unheralded on August 17th.

D and The Furious Seasons were playing the L.A. Flea Market one weekend recently. 

After the boys were done wowing the crowd, D and I took a mouth watering gander at the food trucks. We should have eaten earlier because by the time he was done around noon the lines were long everywhere we looked. The odor emanating from Mo's truck was quite enticing, so we took a peek at their menu and made the commitment. They offered a couple different kinds of protein including beef and turkey with a number of different toppings: tomato, avocado, bleu cheese, BBQ sauce, caramelized onions, bacon and so on. You catch my drift.

Best burger I have had in L.A. since I don't know when. Turkey burger on whole wheat with caramelized onions and BBQ sauce. The burger was cooked perfectly. some nice carcinogenic char flavoring but still nice and juicy (sometimes a turkey burger can be a bit dry). The juicy tomatoes, sweet BBQ sauce and browned through and through caramelized onions didn't hurt one bit. 

 Next time the Mo's truck is cruising around your general hemisphere, hit it up. Have them cut your burger in half and share it with your favorite person.
