Competed against AJ Bombers in the Travel Channel’s “Food Wars,” and despite losing, has triumphed with its “Loser Burger” (colby jack, bacon, fried onions). You can’t really lose here. The hangover burger is like the “Loser,” only topped with a fried egg. The Fresco burger (personal fave) has guac, habanero cheese and pico de gallo. Also very serious about bloody marys, topping them with ingredients that will blow your mind (i.e., bacon cheeseburger).

Nostalgia has defined the 5 O’Clock Club since it opened, as just a bar (under the name Coerper’s 5 O’Clock Club), in 1945. The ownership has changed but part of the reason the popularity of this joint hasn’t waned is it’s kept the trademarks intact: Diners belly up to the bar, where they order a drink and place their dinner order.
Owned by a onetime employee of Sobelman??s Pub and Grill, the bar focuses on more or less one thing: burgers. Bring your voracious appetite for the Big O burger (with chorizo, bacon, two kinds of cheese, fried onions and guac) with a side of sweet potato fries. If you??re not burgering it, try the seven-layer cheese nachos.
