That's correct. Been there a long time. Don't ask for tomatoes.

    Thanks. When I go through St. Louis I usually stay near the Hill. I will have to make time for O'Connell's on my next trip.

      My nostalgic best hamburger ever was at the original Hard Rock Cafe (!) in London, mid-1970s (74?). I was working offshore Scotland and had been there for over a year. Our cooks did what they could to replicate American food but they never could get hamburgers right. But Hard Rock did-- a classic American cheeseburger with fries and a thick chocolate malt. It was as much a taste of home as the Wolf Brand Chili that we would buy at Fortnum & Mason for $4 a can.

      I finally got to try Bobcat Bite three weeks ago. The green chile cheeseburger lived up to its reputation and was the best hamburger I've had in recent memory, a simply wonderful classic hamburger (the meat seemed very dense and low fat, but the cheese made up for it), with a lot of zing in the chiles. My wife thought hers was undercooked but they tell you on the menu exactly what their interpretation of rare/medium/well done is, and that's precisely what they did.

      She doesn't read instruction manuals either.

        I am in Dayton,Ohio and there is a place on North Main ( Benjamins-The Burger Master 1000 N Main St, Dayton, OH )that has awesome double burgers. They are fixed to order, so there is a wait.
        I tried the triple burger one time but it was wayyyyy to much meat for me. It's in no way a fancy place by far,but they have great burgers! They also have very good fried chicken & other side items.

            In NYC, the best burger I found was a little place hidden off the lobby in Le Parker Meridien Hotel on W. 57th. As far as I know, the place doesn't even have a name so you might have to ask when you get in the lobby. All they serve are burgers and fries. Most people don't even know it exists, but it still always has a line. Cheap (by NY standards), greasy and goooood. They are open until about midnight.

              After the experience I had last Saturday night, the best burger resides in Santa Fe New Mexico, at Bobcat Bite. For those who have been there before, you know what I am talking about.

                Best burgers in the world are served at Miller's Bar in Dearborn Michigan. They made the list of 10 best burgers in USA a few years ago, and I use to live down the street.

                    I agree have eaten there many times and have also lived all over the country. Millers is as good today as it ever has been. Amazing how they have continued serving top quality Burgers after so many decades. It is my favorite Hamburger by far......Russ

                      The 20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die
                      Alan Richman traveled 23,750 miles and consumed more than 150,000 calories while taking the measure of 162 burgers across the country—with one goal: to find you the best damned assemblage of ground beef and buns this country serves up

                      The hamburger is a symbol of everything that makes America great. Straightforward, egalitarian, substantial, and good-natured, it is also a little bloody at times.

                      It may come big and ungarnished, the East Coast ideal, tender and untroubled by bones or gristle, everything you look for in a filet mignon but seldom find. It may be the West Coast model, swelling with vegetation, brimming with health and well-being, piled high with all that a seed catalog can provide. A great burger, regardless of regional differences, instills a sense of optimism and fulfillment, that all is right at the table or the counter or the woodgrain, screwed-to-the-floor, fast-food booth.

                      At its best, it eliminates the need for conversation or the urge to glance up at the TV over the bar. If you find yourself eating silently, eyes closed, ignoring everything around you, even the unavoidable burger-joint din, you have come upon a burger that can be pronounced a success.

                      Here are the 20 best burgers in America

                        long name dining room, Im, gonna give you a little credit. Kellers in Dallas is good. Here in New Mexico, Bobcat is good. The Buckhorn in San Antonio, NM, well, you hit a three baser. The Owl across the road only a two base hit, for a homerun drop into the Outpost in Carrizozo, NM for the finest greenchile cheeseburger. Voted best in Lincoln County for several years.

                            You will find the burger you mention rated #9 on the best burger list in USA the listing is a few posts up from this post.

                              Surprise:

                              THE BRICKYARD in Daytona Beach ... My. somewhat well known, favorite.

                              Yet other burgers with a slight different style are also the best in their category ... Some that come to mind:

                              STANICH'S in Portland, Oregon ... Two all beef patties, cheese, special sauce, etc. ... It is like a Big Mac, only good (actually, excellent.)

                              TWO BELLS TAVERN, Seattle ... a rustic burger on a French bread bun.

                              WHITE CASTLE ... can't compare them to any other.

                              Oh yes, LOUIS LUNCH in New Haven.

                              I've been to Red Mill in Seattle and am leaving them off my list.

                                Rouxdog,

                                On my honor, the next time I drive through your town, I will go to the Outpost, as well as that ice cream shop nearby (name is eluding me right now). The last two times I drove through Carizozo, I thought of your recommendation, and spotted the restaurant. However, both times I was en route to Denver, and was driving like a bat out of hell.

                                  Tam, we look forward to your culinary report regarding the Outpost's green chile cheeseburger and fresh cut fries. Then walk south for about two minutes to Roys for that ice cream dessert. A for real "soda fountain" will await you. Roy also can mix you up a fresh Coca Cola as you watch. This site is a historically designated building. Dr. Paden had his office, pharmacy,soda shop,etc. in this building at the start of Carrizozo's early days as a railroad town. Today, the trains roll through without stopping. Now, this little community of about 1000 folks is transforming into art galleries,antique shops, sculptors,writers,woodworkers, painters, etc. No we don't live in town, we ranch west. Yes, I did serve 2 terms as Chamber of Commerce president.
                                  Tam, put that "bat out of hell" thing aside for a few minutes(I'm, guilty of same)stop and enjoy Carrizozo and life's little pleasures.

                                      Tessaro's in Pittsburgh is the best. The meat is ground in house and you can get it any way you want for 6.50. You know is good when you have to wait in a line to get a burger.

                                        "I am in Dayton,Ohio and there is a place on North Main ( Benjamins-The Burger Master 1000 N Main St, Dayton, OH )that has awesome double burgers. They are fixed to order, so there is a wait.
                                        I tried the triple burger one time but it was wayyyyy to much meat for me. It's in no way a fancy place by far,but they have great burgers! They also have very good fried chicken & other side items.

                                        While the Burger Master is good, the best burger in Dayton (IMO in Ohio as well) is the Tank Burger at Tank's Bar and Grill on Wayne. They also have good hand cut fries, sandwiches, and chili/soup.

                                        The second best burger in Dayton would be at the Pine Club, but it is more of a steak burger (they use trimming from filets and lamb for the meat).

                                          Curious how "wheregregeats" found the Brickyard in daytona Beach. Yes, indeed, it is an excellent burger..Best in this area. And "mattyb" is right on the $$ with Tessarro's, too. I had a restaurant in Pittsburgh for several years and use to eat there whereever we got some free time.

                                          But, Bob Cat Bite is in a whole different league. Hope both of you guys can get out there one day. One bite and you'll know what some of the posters here have all said.......

                                            Hype.

                                            I used to go to Le Tub in the late eighties, but since they became the "best" burger, I stopped, for various reasons. The burger is huge, but the best? After reading reviews, and salivating over photos of the GCCB at Bobcat Bites, probably not.

                                            The Billabong Pub in Pembroke Park had better burgers than Le Tub, but sadly, is defunct. One of the 'Bong's Bartenders wants to open her own place, and use the menu.

                                            The King's head Pub in Dania had a very good burger, as does Moonshadow's in Hollywood. Both are at about half the price, come with fries, no stank attitude, and in about fifteen minutes or less.

                                            If you go to Moonshadow's, ask for Randy's "The doctors medicine" hot sauce. Amazing stuff.

                                            Long story short, Le Tub has incredible atmosphere, beautiful view, and very uneven service that borders on offensive. Giant burger, too much so, no side. If you want the great view, Capone's next door has it, along with Chicago style pizza, etc, and they want your business.

                                              In Jacksboro, TX there is Herd's. They have been around since 1915 - the iron griddle looks like it too...

                                                Up in Western NY, there were at least two pretty good burder joints on Route 104. One was Orbaker's, out towards Sodus - they also had good milkshakes.

                                                The other was Charlie's, home of the Charlie burger, in Ontario (the town, not the county)

                                                In Seattle, there was a place I went to back in 98 and got this great cheeseburger with applewood smoked bacon and garlic mayo (a bit fancy for me) but could never remember the name of that place.

                                                In Virginia, I haven't really found any good non chain burger joints worth writing home about, at least not that have had consistently good burgers. I need to check out the new place just over the Henrico/Goochland line on US250 - Fast Eddies (where Grandpa Eddies BBQ used to be - different owners though)

                                                  The burger I crave the most is made by Keller's in dallas. The #5 with chili, not the chili burger. It's not on the menu but you can get one. Forget about picking it up. Get a fork.

                                                    I still live in the area and they are SO overated ! Better burgers are all around the area. Allen Park Bar, Oakwood Bar, Carter's, Giant's, my favorite is still the Royal Red Robin burger. When I make them at home, I use bacon from Dearborn Sausage. If I ever open a place, that would be my place for bacon, no added water, thick sliced and can get it double smoked.

                                                            Lima Ohio at Kewpees. There is a picture of one in this thread from the one in Racine wis. there use to be more around but I think for the last 30 years there has just been the 3 in Lima Ohio and the one in Racine wis.

                                                            I make the 2 and half hr drive from home once a month to have a Kewpee. Man I love that place. When you go remember they still use 50s size drinks so a medium would be a kiddy cup in this day and age.

                                                            They make homemade pies also. Nothing better then making the trip up in March for Marchocolate at Kewpees.

                                                            If I remember right, Wendys was designed from Kewpees many many years ago.
