B&R’s Old Fashioned Burgers, owned and operated by Richard and Norma Hood, first opened it’s door on July 9, 1994. After years of laborious work in the manufacturing industry, they decided that it was time to be the masters of their own destinies. Inspired by other family members who had already ventured into the food industry they soon followed suit. Also wanting to leave a legacy to their two young sons, Bryan and Rashad, they took the first initial of each son’s name and launched their new enterprise. Since that time, they have become a staple of the Hawthorne area. The restaurant offers a sumptuous breakfast menu, mouth -watering burgers, home-style fries, tacos, chicken dinners and shakes. The signature dish is their Monster Royal Burger, which is a combination of two 8- ounce patties, bacon or pastrami, an egg, chili and condiments. According to Chris Cognac, a culinary detective who writes for the Daily Breeze Newspaper and who specializes in reviewing “hole-in-the-wall” restaurants, “the Royal Burger is all that and more. everyone I take there says it’s the most amazing burger they have ever had.” The burger’s notoriety resulted in the newspaper listing B&R’s as one of the Top Ten restaurants in that area. In the summer of 2004, customers nominated the restaurant for a Hoodie Award in the Best Breakfast category. At the time, the Steve Harvey Radio Show hosted the awards. In August of 2006, B&R’s was featured on Alton Brown’s, Feasting On The Asphalt, culinary show that is part of the Food Network. In 2012, B&R Burgers took home the Best Burger In Hawthorne/Gardena trophy from the Annual Gardena Beer and Wine Festival. In 2011, the owners have branched out into catering as well. They have a catering truck, that caters to any and all events, public to private Norma and Richard are pleased with the success of their small establishment and have been equally blessed to have their oldest son, Bryan join the ranks of their enterprising team.
