Six Pack Burger is one of three kosher restaurants operated by chef/owner Assaf Hadad. Haddad also helms the pizza concept Foozo and the Israeli cafe Hadekel. Six Pack Burger was inspired by Hadad's childhood in Los Angeles, where cult-like In & Out was among the most popular fast food restaurants — but not kosher. Hadad wanted to create a similar experience for cheeseburger lovers and the kosher world to enjoy. The simple menu offers burgers (including a vegan-friendly option), non-dairy shakes, and fries. Burgers are smashed to order and made with meat ground in-house, topped with vegan-friendly cheeses (or no cheese) and its homemade secret sauce. Burgers range from $13-$16, except the "Double Double" packed with two 2.5-ounce burger patties, two slices of vegan cheese, and Six Pack sauce (priced at $22). Fries are crinkled and served golden brown; order the "Six Pack" fries topped with caramelized onions and secret sauce. Shakes are made with oat milk ice cream and are certified kosher in flavors like vanilla, chocolate, and a specialty tahini flavor topped with halva. Sunday through Friday noon to 10 p.m.
