In the culinary quest for the quintessential American comfort food, the humble patty melt is a testament to simplicity and flavor. It's more than just a sandwich; it's a crossroad where the juiciness of a hamburger patty meets the crispness of grilled bread, all harmoniously bound together by the gooey richness of melted cheese and the sweetness of caramelized onions. While this delicious concoction can be found in diners and eateries across the nation, a recent exploration into the realm of patty melts has unveiled a standout that might claim the title of the Best Patty Melt in America.

According to an article featured on Cheapism, Cassell's Hamburgers in Los Angeles captures the essence of what makes a patty melt exceptional and elevates it to new heights. Opening its doors originally as Cassell's Patio in 1948, this establishment has perfected its craft over the decades, serving up classic diner fare with a focus on burgers that are nothing short of legendary.


What sets Cassell's apart is its commitment to quality and freshness. The restaurant grinds its beef fresh every day and even goes the extra mile to make its own mayonnaise. Their patty melts, offered in either 7- or 11-ounce sizes to satisfy any appetite, are a symphony of flavors and textures. Grilled to perfection, these sandwiches feature Swiss cheese and grilled onions on rye, accompanied by a side of mustardy mayo and pickles for that extra zing.
