Mick's Karma Bar

2010 Main St., Ste. 165 Irvine, CA 92614 | Irvine | 949-851-6316

Location Description:

Michael Schepers (the namesake behind Mick’s) knows his way around burgers like Pujols knows how to turn on an off-speed pitch. The go-to option is the Karma burger, the aforementioned basics spiked with what they call Karma sauce, some derivation of Thousand Islands dressing with a whisper of spice. It’s the happy medium between the fast-food glory of T.K. and the pricey beauts of far too many restaurants to remember. But Mick riffs from this structure to even better results like he’s affected with attention-deficit disorder. He always constructs a Burger of the Week, on which he’ll experiment with the fearlessness of someone BASE jumping off Half Dome.
