Fine Dining Fast Food

OC native Joseph Mahon, who trained at the Culinary Institute of America and was the head chef at Bastide on Melrose has opened a burger joint in downtown Fullerton. After Bastide Mahon did a series of successful pop-up restaurants in LA.

The place is called Burger Parlor and it operates in the Rialto Cafe on Harbor and Wilshire after the the Cafe wraps up it’s daily schedule.

We went in at 9:30 and tried some burgers on the sidewalk patio Saturday night.

The burgers are a decent size with all-fresh produce and quality meat. They are served rare and are incredibly juicy. Wedge cut fries, pickle chunk, and onion rings tasted great.

Mahon is trying to bring something fun and exiting to fine dining fast food in downtown Fullerton.
