Who Makes Monrovia's Best Burger?

Readers can weigh in and vote for their favorite local burger joint. The winner gets named "Patch's Best" burger, complete with a nifty certificate to show off.

Monrovia is an All-America city, and what's more All-American than a cheeseburger?

There are plenty of places to chow down on delicious burgers in town, but now's your chance to vote for the best. Voting will take place until Thursday night, and the winning "steamed ham" will be crowned next Friday when a new dish is voted upon.

So don't just vote for your favorite--tell us why it's the best. The triumphant restaurant (chains excluded) will be named "Patch's Best" burger and receive a certificate to display for bragging rights, as will all subsequent winners.

My choice is the Market Grill based on the experience of ordering and enjoying their delicious burgers there. It feels like what a burger joint should be.

Sad to see "Troy's Burger and Donuts" didn't make the list.

Market Grill, hands down. I've been to all of the others, and they've shown me love, but not like the Market Grill. Awesome service, the friendliest staff, and the best burgers I've ever had. I recommend the place to all my friends, I send co-workers, bosses, anyone and everyone I meet. From fresh baked buns to hand ground beef, home made sauces and desserts, and the most delicious soups this side of heaven, it's almost unfair to put them against the other guys since The Market Grill is in a class all its own.

THE MARKET GRILL!! Not only is the food SECOND TO NONE, but the service is amazing and the staff members make you feel like family. No matter how busy it is - you are warmly welcomed and feel as if you are their favorite customer! ....and the food - INCREDIBLE!! I seriously dream about the burgers, sandwiches, sauces (OH THE RANCH!!!), and desserts. #1 - FOR SURE!

Market Grill...not only a great burger, but the owners are the best -- truly supportive members of the community and willing to help support people and organizations in need. Thanks Tracy & Alex!

Burger Basket's Teriyaki burger is the best. Served up fast at a great price by the same people who have been doing it for as long as anyone I know can remember.

Has anyone tried the Poblano burger at Sena? It is very good!! In fact I had the same burger at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood for 3 times as much!! As for the Market Grill, I must have been the only one in Monrovia that was turned away both times I approached them regarding fundraising opportunities. One time in fact was just to see if they wanted free advertising space on a discount card for the Soccer team at no cost to them. Sadly I haven't been back in there since.

The Market Grill has the best burgers without a doubt!!!!
lisa s February 04, 2012 at 07:32 PM
I agree with Jill. Sena's Poblano burger is the best burger I have had in Monrovia! Gooey cheese sauce, nice blend of chilis so you get the smokey flavors and just the right balance of heat. Nice size burger that is moist and flavorful. Hands down the best and I've had all the burgers mentioned above.

I live right next door to the Market Grill, and by far they have been the best, and delicious, neighbors I have ever had. Their handmade desserts are most wonderful.
Andrew Herrera February 04, 2012 at 11:23 PM
Market grill is the best. Everything is fresh from the buns to the burger
Di Moraga February 04, 2012 at 11:50 PM
Wow, seems like most of these people are not true Monrovians. Its burger basket all the way. Fresh and juicy with a great special sauce and friendly owners.
janet February 05, 2012 at 02:10 AM
Market Grill by far! Great quality meat ground by the crew. Fresh buns. An altogether outstanding burger every time!!!!
Chris B February 05, 2012 at 03:22 AM
Sena on Myrtle! Ridiculously delicious.
Vince February 05, 2012 at 03:28 AM
Bacon Cheddar Burger at The Market Grill is juicy fresh and made to order! Not just the best burger in Monrovia but in the SGV!!!!!
Melanie Ward February 05, 2012 at 06:08 AM
Could not agree more Dave-O. Great American burger with wonderful, friendly service.
Gayle M. Montgomery February 05, 2012 at 07:42 AM
You left off the Widow Maker off at Claim Jumper which, during Happy Hour, is only $7. Add $2 for fries, or $4 for Irish Nachos (adds cheese and bacon and really serves 2 or 3, comes with a complimentary heart attack, LOL), and a mini Caesar for $2, and you have a super meal.
Marlena Waid February 05, 2012 at 04:58 PM
T Philips burgers are the best! They are huge, juicy, and delicious with a great variety to choose from. The beers good too!
Sonia Guerrero February 08, 2012 at 05:57 PM
Jake's Roadhouse has the best burgers I've ever tasted. You can taste the quality in their meat and in the ingredients they use.
Teo Gomez February 08, 2012 at 06:34 PM
Hands down Jake's Roadhouse in Monrovia has the best burgers around. I drive all the way to Monrovia from Pasadena just for there burgers and there's alot of burger joints in Pasadena .
Angelica February 08, 2012 at 08:16 PM
Jake's Roadhouse! seriously when I think of Burgers, I can't imagine going anywhere else! My favorite is the bacon burger because of the quality of the meat. There's no better patty or bacon than at Jake's Roadhouse people! Do yourselves a favor and visit this gem in Old Town Monrovia!
John February 08, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Jakes Roadhouse is the best burger place in Monrovia! I work as a butcher and know that they use good quality meat beacause you can taste it. Very friendly place and got to love that you can eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor.
Omar Garcia February 08, 2012 at 08:49 PM
One place, JAKE'S ROADHOUSE! I hate biting into a burger and it either tasting too dry or too fatty! At Jake's I have never encountered this problem. Why? Because they only buy quality meat! And the cheese! Delicious!!!!! Don't you hate when you eat a burger and there's more bread than meat? Yeah me too! But at Jake's, it's the perfect burger!
Gayle M. Montgomery February 08, 2012 at 09:23 PM
This sudden infusion of Jake's Roadhouse makes me wonder if there's not a sign inside that says vote for us, get a coupon for a free burger (smile).
Alex February 08, 2012 at 09:33 PM
My vote is for Jake's Roadhouse. I have eaten at most of the places listed, and their is no comparison to Jake's. Even better than the Market Grill. I like a good bacon cheese burger and hands down it is the best. Juicy thick meat and killer strips of bacon. Been going their since 2000 and has always been my favorite restaurant.
greg scherr February 08, 2012 at 11:09 PM
No coupon just good food, the bacon on the bacon burger is good thick bacon, and the patty itself is just good fresh meat, they are known for the BBQ but the burgers are as good. Go there hungry though because you will get a big fresh tasty burger, enjoy.
bernie626mac February 13, 2012 at 07:15 AM
jakes rh, market g, burger b, ect. they r all good but u gotta try Gem City Grills 'Steerburger'! i grew up in Arcadia and Bob did too. THIS IS THE BEST!!! and yes i LIVE in MONROVIA.
