Calling Dumont Burger even a "great" burger is a stretch- flavorless, overcooked, on a brioche (arghhh!), poor to no seasoning, pretty awful. i could not even finish mine last time i was there... they may as well have called white castle the best burger in NYC- opening the link and seeing Dumont as #1 in NYC, when Luger's Cheeseburger is seconds away, renders this list silly... sorry critics- try again!

    Any burger that costs more than five bucks is not a burger. 

    With the possible exception of the Bobcat Cafe, all the places listed are aspiring more to "fine dining" than to "burger joints".


    Obviously, you've lived a very sheltered life in McKinney, TX. You can't compare prices in your world with prices in Major Cities. It's like comparing Apples & Oranges. A $5 burger in McKinney may be considered outrageous, while a $5 burger in NYC, Chicago, LA might be considered a Bargain!
    You need to get out into the rest of the "Real World"!

    I have seen the real world and am very happy where we are now - even though we sometimes have to do without some of the food we dearly love - there are many offsets and frankly living in the boonies beats the hell out of the big cities - bottom line - it of course pays to be retired and not have to commute to work daily.  Getting by with one car now.

     
    Sardinia???
     
    That's a foreign country somewhere in Eastern Europe around Bulgaria isn't it???

          I believe that most of the opinions on this forum are very useful.

            The best hamburger in China is in the Shamrock Bar in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province near Shanghai.

              Best hamburger I've had recently was at Arthurs steakhouse in Morris Plains, NJ. $6 for a huge, delicious burger cooked perfectly.

                Pie N Burger doesn't aspire to anything, believe me. It is charitable to call it a diner. (It is also, in my opinion, charitable to call it a "best" burger, although the pie and shakes are worth the trip.)

                  It appears to me that most of those burgers are quite - ah - "high end". I mean, I appreciate you posting this list, but it makes me cringe when I think that someone will look at that list and say, "Oh, I'm in Philly and looking for something Roadfood-worthy in the way of a burger. I don't know the prices in Philly, so is $16 a normal price to pay for a burger at Rouge?" Not representative, but I do realize your intent when posting the list. It sure got some replies here!
