Best HAMBURGER IN US Thu, 10/27/05 7:04 PM (permalink)
I am the Burgermaven. skip@burgermaven.com

I have tried many of Alan Richman's 20 Best Burgers in US and agree and disagree on many. But I had the privilege of going to Le Tub 10 days ago in Hollywood , FL. I have to show you all a picture. It was truly tied for the best burger I;ve had. My favorit (or was) is cooked exactly on the same way on the same type of open Char-grill. Now the Hurrican hit and Le Tub is out of action for a while. Call Robin (manager) or Steve - owner and say Skip told you to wish them luck.

        I think this is called "buzz marketing."
        quote:
        Buzz marketing is a viral marketing technique that attempts to make each encounter with a consumer appear to be a unique, spontaneous personal exchange of information instead of a calculated marketing pitch choreographed by a professional advertiser. . . . Although buzz marketing is not new, Internet technology has changed the way it's being used. Buzz campaigns are now being initiated in chat rooms, where marketing representatives assume an identity appropriate to their target audience and pitch their product. [Quoted from the link below.]

          A Roadfood insider with his very first post. Is that a record? Was it love at first sight?

            I don't know about "best hamburger in the US" but I'm addicted to the mini-burgers at the Ugly Mug in Washington, DC. I know that mini-burgers are in many forms all around the country, but these are uniquely different and savory.

            They are certainly the best burgers in DC.

                So what IS the best Hamburger in the USA? It might be in CT, but I will have to eat many, many more to even start to form an opinion on this subject. What a vacation that would be!!! Instead of eating at McDs every day like a certain author who made a lot of $$$, I would stop at 40 RF burger joints in 20 days. That would get me back to 340 easy!!! BTW, I'm still a trim (for me) 295, and only dreaming about a vaca that I will never take.

                  At my age and many cheeseburgers down the road, I'd have to say that to come up with one "very best" still eludes me. However, I am still among those who believe that the quest for the perfect burger is an honorable one.

                    Your burger quest would certainly require you to investigate central Oklahoma.

                        Best burger, IMHO, is anyone that fresh grinds the beef, grills the bun, cooks and dresses it to my specifications. Only thing that gets me are some of the places that do this perfectly, yet serve a flash frozen, commerically produced fry...

                          If you are suggesting that I might have some connection to Waffle House other than as a very satisfied customer then you are in way over your head, pal.

                            I haven't eaten a hamburger in 12 years. The best though were Fuddruckers when they butchered sides of beef right in the restaurant. Everything went into the hamburger ground meat except a measely 12 steak sandwiches per side. They also baked their own buns on site. I know they don't butcher on site anymore so I doubt one would claim them best now. I designed their first restaurants in Minneapolis back in the 80s and learned a lot about them then. OK, that was a nostalgia trip. Doesn't help anyone today.

                                  I just saw the news today (Dec 30) and they were talking about "CLONED" beef that could be in the food chain now...to ne that sounds digusting and unsafe and the USDA doesn't regulate it...I have cut way back on meat eating esp beef...

                                    I live in Hollywood fl. I like the atmoshphere of Le Tub (outdoor seating on the water), I don't like waiting an hour and a half for an $11 hamburger (without french fries).

                                    Go to Big City Dogs in Fort Lauderdale for a great half-pound cooked to order burger.

                                      Hey, Skip!

                                      Just to let you know, your buzz marketing ploy has backfired.

                                      I'm forwarding your lame attempt to Allan Richman as evidence that you don't even have the confidence in your own product to let it sell itself.

                                      Now I even wonder if Mr. Richman's testimonial was freely given, or was obtained at a price.

                                      Shame on you! and all your ilk.

                                        Sort of off-topic: heard on TV this morning that the average American eats 3 hamburgers/week. That really surprised me; I might eat one a month.

                                        So, do you fit the average, or are you higher? Lower?

                                        Just curious...

                                          most of the people i know do tend to eat lots of hamburgers, but generally not the gourmet restaurant handmade kind that the burger purists here rave about.... poor people on a budget tend to be all over the 99-cent menus at the many fast-food franchises that exist everywhere now. myself, i sometimes reach the 3-burger average if i don't feel like packing a lunch to work that week.

                                          as far as what is the best burger in the us, i think it's more of a regional thing.. every part of the country has their own tastes when it comes to cooking anything, and there is no such thing as the proper way to make a burger, or hotdog, or pizza.

                                            If the term "Burger" is stretched to include any sandwich on the typical FF menu I probably qualify as slightly above the national average for the number I eat in a week but not over an extended period of time. I would count the Pork Tenderloin or Fish Sandwiches from our local Culvers as 'Burgers' for purposes of this tally. I may have a week when I visit a Burger Stand more often than the week before, or the next week.

                                              I see someone has revived a 2 year old topic. Of course being a hamburger topic, it's always, "topical".
                                              Ok, for my 2 cents..... The Twisted Root Burger Company in Dallas.
                                              Just across the street from the aformentioned, "Adair's Saloon" on Commerce Street in the Deep Ellum section of Dallas.

                                                I will have to cast a vote for the "Big Ben" burger at the Burger Bar in Roy, Utah (just ouside of Odgen)

                                                They have to be the best burgers I have ever eaten....

                                                  I would have to put TJ's burgers on the list in Houston, TX. They are location on Kirby and a block off of main. It has been in business many years and the place is old and spotlessly clean. It is operated by a man and wife team who open it up and close it down.

                                                  I had breakfast and lunch there. Great breakfast wwith griddle fried potatoes, eggs fried just righ and toast buttered just right and crispy bacon. Daughter got pancakes and sausage and it was very good.

                                                  Lunch burgers were cooked to oder and we tasty, tender and condiments were fresh.

                                                    There is a small chain around Akron, OH called Hamburger Station. There are maybe 3 or 4 now (used to be 7 I believe) that has the best burger I've had. They are bigger than "sliders" but not as large as regular burgers. They are server with tons of thinly sliced onions, pickles and mustard. If you ask for ketchup, they give you the packs. The burgers (to go) are serverd in a box and the buns get steamed.

                                                    Great for that after partying meal, or fourth meal as Taco Bell calls it.

                                                      I'd put Kincaid's in Ft. Worth and now Southlake up there with Twisted Root. Never tried Adair's.

                                                        I'm not having much luck with the Herd's Hamburgers search, other than it is in Jacksboro, Texas. Trying to find out a bit more about it because there is a local joint here in AZ that has a "Herd's Burger Style" on their menu, something that I order every time I go there. After lunch today I decided to look into the name and history, but not getting too far...anyone know anything about it?

                                                            I'm not having much luck with the Herd's Hamburgers search, other than it is in Jacksboro, Texas. Trying to find out a bit more about it because there is a local joint here in AZ that has a "Herd's Burger Style" on their menu, something that I order every time I go there. After lunch today I decided to look into the name and history, but not getting too far...anyone know anything about it?







                                                            Call me ignorant, but I've lived in Chicago since 1971 (my whole life), and I've never heard of Goldyburgers. Can someone educate me?

                                                            As far as I'm concerned, the best burger I've had in Chicago is at Moody's Pub in Edgewater, but it's been about 13 years since I've been there.
