a SoCal burger?

On a recent pecan-pie seeking binge, I happened to go to Pie N Burger and Jongewaard's and a few other places, and I noticed a strange similarity in the burger aesthetic. Pie 'n Burger, Jongewaard's, In 'n Out (i know this is an import), and maybe even Apple Pan have a particular aesthetic - spongy crisped bread, thin well-done beef patty, lots of lettuce. It's less a burger of the presentation of a lot of high-quality ground beef, and more a burger-as-balanced-harmonious thing. A zen burger.
