Zax’s serves their mouthwatering burger on a pretzel bun baked at the famed Röckenwagner in Santa Monica. If you can’t get a hold of pretzel buns, use your favorite freshly baked rolls. About the meat...the orginator's recipe calls for ground rib-eyes, but this may be expensive. There's nothing wrong with substituting good ground beef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For mayonnaise: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. For burger: Season meat with salt and pepper and form into four patties.
  3. Make a depression in the center of each patty with your thumb so burger will keep its shape better while cooking. Grill burgers until desired degree of doneness. Top with blue cheese, bacon, caramelized onions, sliced tomato, and baby spinach. Serve with scallion mayonnaise.
