    That's interesting, but what is a double hot pepper, what is a side of white, and where would one find this paragon of burgers? Oh, and welcome to Roadfood.

    The best burger in the U.S. is the KNOCKOUT at the Scenic Drive In in Modesto, Ca. Two beef patties, bacon, American cheese, avocado, chopped jalapeno, mayo, mustard, shredded lettuce, onion, tomato and dill pickle. This is also known as a Gravedigger Burger. The Scenic Drive In is located next to the cemetary. Has anybody else eaten here?

    I'll bet you are right about that.

    Okay ... If we are getting into other best burgers. Here goes:

    In the standard, backyard burger on a regular ol' bun category: my avowed favorite: The Brickyard in Daytona Beach, Florida. In the rustic burger on a hearty thick crusted roll: Two Bells Tavern in Seattle. In the Louis' Lunch category: Louis Lunch. In the really good burger in a unique setting category: Grease Wood Flat in Scottsdale. In the what McDonald's wishes they were category: The White Hut in West Springfield, Massachusetts. And in the chains worth going to category: White Castle and Steak and Shake. There was a steamed cheeseburger place in Connecticut I used to go to but it closed ... I'm still on the lookout for the best replacement. I don't know if there is one best burger -- I'm thinking there is one for each category.

    Anyhow, besides these, I never eat a burger on the road. (I've been too many of the other chain-favorites, but these are the ones I plan my travel appetites around.)

    ... Now, as I say, I've gotta get Missoula into my plans. I'm going to pay attention to this thread. (Especially for Pamona, CA ... DC/Fairfax ... Houston and Springfield, MO. All on my travel plans this year.)

    Gregg,
    Add Farmer Boys in Pomona CA and others in surrounding Inland Empire communities. Their "Farmer Burger" may not be THE BEST but it ranks in the top burgers in the nation.

    I've had that burger at Tessaro's, and it tastes like everyone else's porterhouse steak. It's best on the bun with salt and pepper, put cheese on it if you have to.

    A great burger in Wilkes-Barre PA is at Patte's Sports Bar. It's ground on the premises and cooked to order. Too bad they don't have a no smoking section.

    You might check with the chef to see if it is OK to salt your burger.

    My vote goes to Billy's Giant Burger in Jackson, WY.

    The White Hut in Springfield, MA is also good, as someone already noted.

    No it's a really old bar downtown. They still serve real milkshakes in the stainless steel containers that they make them in. No Fries, no frills. Just the best burger I have ever had. Whenever I go home I go there at least once.

    I see you live in Seattle. Try Two Bells. You'll ask locals about a good burger and you'll hear Red Mill -- they are not on my list -- I've been there, I think they are overrated. You should check with you cardiologist and try Dick's, what McDonald's wishes they were.

    I will try 2 bells. I think Red Mill is way over-rated. A bit to trendy for me. Dicks rules. I love their tartar sauce.

    THE BEST BURGER: Is Lone Star's recipe from Mr. Sundancer's "How do you make a juicy burger?" - we just made them AGAIN last night and I will not make them any other way from now on....well, maybe on the grill in summer. Our cholesterol is going to go through the roof this winter!!

    The only deviation from her method that I did was sprinkling the outside of the burger with Montreal Hamburger seasoning by McCormick.

    Thank you so much, Lone Star, for that recipe. We enjoy it tremendously!! Sue

    www,meerstore.com Meersburger!--100% raised there at the ranch Longhorm beef--fresh ground and COOKED TO ORDER-the way you order it!--by folks that have been doin it since the turn of the LAST century---maybe 1905. Good steaks---chicken fried steak and breakfast too.---and reasonably priced. Like i said--may not be the "best"---but i get MORE then my moneys worth and that aint bad, and its a roadtrip! What more can you ask for!

    Thanks, tiki. I've heard of this place before (it may have even been from you). It's bookmarked and on my list of "musts".

    Anyone with plans to be on the Central Coast of California, who has a extra day in there....try the drive to Western Santa Barbara County. South of Vandenburg Air Force Base is a town of Lompoc, and south of that is a county beach, named Jalama. Off Hwy 1 by 40 minutes or so, it is a lovely drive out to the ocean- and there is a store with a patio and they serve World Famous Jalama Burgers. Nice place to camp, walk and watch the windsurfers. Nothing better on a September afternoon.

    Don't tell anyone about Jalama! The crowds will ruin it! It's so nice and away from it all now.

    The best restaurant burger I've ever had is at Park Ave BBQ in Tequesta, FL. It's a half-pound of ground beef with the works. So big, I can barely finish it, but as long as it's done the way I like (medium) I always manage to. Always hits the spot when I need a really good burger fix.

    BURGER KING! Just Kidding... Around my stomping grounds, I have to vote for Lena Lous in Ada.. Forget ordering frys or onion rings, the burger alone will do you in! Though we have restaurants around here that serve probably better quality burgers, I just cant see dropping 8 to 10 bucks for one. (Vote was decided on price, taste and filling factor).

    I totally agree with you on that!I remember wolfing down those Huskies as a kid and I think they cost like 49 cents a piece.But it was the Charcoal taste of the meat and that sauce that I remember the most.Hardees do you hear me!

    Here's an interesting old store in southern Illinois that has great burgers - nothing fancy (no tables, plates or eating utinsils) but taste real good. It's about 15 miles south of I-70 at Casey Illinois exit - takes some back road driving to find. It was featured on CBS Sunday Morning with Bill Geist. If your traveling to St. Louis you might give it a try - get there noon or earlier.

    Simple topic. Easy answer. Fry up a mess or two of bacon in an iron skillet. Set bacon aside. Get you some good ground round; sent through the grinder only ONCE. Make some heapin' patties out 'o that. Season with salt & freshly ground (thick grind) black pepper that you have imbedded into meat. Repeat same. Suppliment same bacon grease with added butter. Fry burgers to your taste. Right before done, add a thick slice of Jarlsberg cheese; let same melt. Fix with your choice of toppings, including 'da bacon, fresh sliced 'maters, and Vidalia onions, of course. Bun is optional.

    Oh yea & BTW... Need some home fries with that? Might as well...

    If you're ever in Fort Wayne Indiana Powers Hamburgers on S. Harrison St., in the downtown area, has great little mini burgers. Bigger then Whitecastles but loaded with a gob of stranded grilled onions - they taste great - they have a local almost cult like following !
