After more than 40 years in business, Hamburger Hamlet in Pasadena closed last week and reopened on Saturday as a Du-par's Restaurant & Bakery, according to the Huffington Post

The closing of the restaurant at 214 S Lake Ave. leaves only one Hamburger Hamlet left in the Los Angeles area, the one at 4419 Van Nuys Blvd. in Sherman Oaks. The first location was opened in 1950 in West Hollywood on the Sunset Strip, but it closed in 2011, according to Los Angeles Magazine. The chain still has two locations in the Washington D.C. area, and two express "XP" locations in Los Angeles in Larchmont and North Hollywood. 

Several people took to Yelp to mourn the loss of Pasadena's Hamburger Hamlet:
  • "This is a travesty - an abomination. 2014 and all subsequent years mean nothing, now." -- Lauren C.
  • Hamburger Hamlet was a magical place where burgers were made and eaten and loved. And the garlic fries... good lord, they were delicious. -- Kalia C.
