CONLEY'S DRIVE-IN...MIDDLESBORO,KY

Paul,
Next time you're up that way, try one of their cheeseburgers and a hotdog.
NO BETTER EATING!!

    Hey, how about three chili cheese dogs and some ice cold Schlitz at Jesse's Quick Lunch! Yum! The last time I was there the theater next door was open and playing "A Star is Born" (the Streisand version)!

      The BEST burger in the US is in Martinsburg, Nebraska. At least 18 oz. of hand-packed midwestern beef. Cooked perfectly and hanging out from all sides of the bun. A Roadfood delight!

        The best burger I have ever had can be found at Midtown Billards in Little Rock, AR. The place is a smokey, late night dive that is open 7 days a week. If you are ever in Little Rock, please give one a try!

          I lived in Chicago for about 40 years, San Diego for about 20 and now in Charlotte. Best burger my wife and liked is in Charlotte at Hef's, near Woodlawn and Park Blvd. A little pricey at around 8 bucks, but well worth it. Comes with fries.

          I am still partial to White Castle though. In fact I just picked up 2 boxes today at the grocer's. They're more of a unique burger compared to what is being talked about here.

                  BEEN IN A LOT OF PLACES THAT SERVED A GREAT BURGER STARTING IN THE LATE 70'S WITH MAXWELL'S PLUM (FAMOUS FOR ONE OF THE FIRST THICK EXPENSIVE BURGERS) FRIDAY'S WHEN IT WAS A REALLY GREAT SINGLE BAR OPERATION WITH A FANTASTIC BURGER, TOO. SERVED ON AN ENGLISH MUFFIN...

                  A GREAT MEDIUM RARE BURGER IS ABOUT THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD (WELL, MAYBE A GREAT SHRIMP AND LOBSTER SAUCE MIGHT BE A BIT BETTER?) AND THE BEST BURGER I HAVE EVER HAD WITHOUT QUESTION WAS AT BOB CAT BITE JUST OUTSIDE THE CITY LIMITS OF SANTA FE. THEY ARE ONLY OPEN FOR LIMITED HOURS SO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THEM.

                  BURGER LOVERS, YOU'LL KNOW IMMEDIATELY WHEN YOU STEP INSIDE THIS LITTLE HOLE IN THE WALL RESTAURANT THAT WAS NAMED AFTER THE FACT THAT AT ONE TIME, BOBCATS, WOULD COME TO THE BACK DOOR TO BE FED. THIS IS NIRVANA......PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

                  SIT AT THE COUNTER IF AT ALL POSSIBLE AND NEAR TO THE KITCHEN; JUST WATCH. HUGE 12 OZ (NOT 8 OZ) FRESH MEAT BURGERS, HAND PATTIED ARE PLACED ON A GRIDDLE (I KNOW...IT IS NOT CHAR-BROILED BUT, I'M TELLING YOU THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE BURGER) AND TOPPED WITH THICK CHEDDAR CHEESE AND AMAZING GREEN CHILIS...ORDER IT MEDIUM RARE AND JUST ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE. THE BEST......

                  SANTA FE IS A WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL TOWN TO VISIT.

                      Let's see what happens. The topic was "the Best Burger in the U.S.". I hope it is not just me, but the best (and that is an absolute) is the one I make on by backyard barbeque. I sincerely hope there are plenty of other chefs and chefettes that will chime in.

                      Now if the topic is actually the best non-home cooked Burger in the U.S., there cannot be one. There can be one of the best I have ever had in my life. Otherwise, anyone saying best would have to have sampled every place in existence.

                          Strangely enough the Burger I like the most is the Brazier from Dairy Queen.

                            Kewpee's in Racine, WI is my favorite greasy cheesebuger. Kewpee's is so good, I'd pick up a double cheeseburger to go on my way to work at 7:00am. I always made it to work, the cheeseburger didn't.

                              pals cabin in west orange new jersey- a big fancy place has grown up around the original hot dog and burger stand, but you can still sit at a lunch counter type deal and get the big juicy chargrilled burger...while there ,do not pass up a house salad with homemade croutons and certainly do not miss the world famous cream of mushroom soup

                                      All American Burger, Massapequa, Long Island. I know naming this place is hardly news but this just might be my favorite place to eat anywhere.

                                                Well Bon Appetit just named Bobcat Bite in Santa Fe as the best hamburger in the US, and I would have to say it is a mighty good burger. I was happy they won, it's just a local burger joint, nothing fancy, just good burgers, friendly atmosphere and a 50 year old cast iron griddle. Yum!!

                                                P.S. It was aired on the Food Network

                                                  No one yet mentioned, Solly's butter burger in Milwaukee. It's to die (clotted arteries) for, but worth it:)

                                                    Don't forget the pride of New Buffalo, Michigan, Redamak's!

                                                    But be prepared to get there soon as they close for 4 months starting Oct 21st and remember, they only take cash.

                                                      My vote goes to Hodad's in Ocean Beach, CA (within the San Diego city limits). Burgers so thick and juicy that you're guaranteed to make a mess, but it's well worth it.

                                                          O'Connell's in St. Louis is fabulous. I've been going there almost 30 years, when I'm in town, and it's always excellent. Great slightly coarse-ground meat, thick juicy patty, the grill tastes like it's been seasoned for a century.

                                                            Is O'Connell's the Irish pub on Kingshighway that is almost under I-44? I seem to remember going there while I was in college over thirty years ago. I remember big long tables and something other than Budweiser to drink.
