For Carlton Pierre: Tybee Island is my second home for alomst 20 years, the best hamburger to be found is at the Quarter, a sports bar on the Island. Not sure when it opens during the day, but for sure open by 4:00 p.m. Only I can make a better burger. sandymacey

One of my very favorite things to eat is a really good burger--anytime of day or night. In fact my favorite breakfast is a hamburger and hash browns. There is a small place very close to our house that makes a good one. But I make a mean burger, myself and when I want a really top-notch one that's just what I do. I think the key is a good quality ground beef with the right proportion of fat. I make what my boys call "salt burgers", cooking them in a cast iron skillet with a layer of salt sprinkled on the bottom and lots of freshly ground black pepper after they start cooking. If we're not concerned about health issues I prefer to either butter and toast the buns or just plop them down in the grease cooked out of the meat and toast them that way. Otherwise I just heat the buns, add fresh tomato (homegrown if we have them), sweet onion, dill pickle, leaf lettuce, a bit of mustard and lots of mayo. Yum, yum.

Visited the Blazer Pub' s new location yesterday (named O'brien's Blazer Pub) in Pouguag, NY (NY State route 55 a mile or so west of Rt 22). The hamburger and steak fries were OK, but not up to the very high standard of the original Blazer Pub in Purdys, NY. Luckily, I did not visit the men's room 'till after our lunch - it was filthy, it was nasty- no excuse for that in any kind of place.

BTW: Across the road from O'Briens is a very interesting place (Arnold Larsen's ) where they have glass blowers working every day (not sure if they are always available to watch, but they have been every time we've been there) and they also sell all sorts of Scandanavian products- food specialities (maybe even Lutkfisk), crafts, etc. The place is worth a stop if you find yourself in that area.

Cheers, John

Lot of variety here. I like Hutt's in Austin. Dan's, a small local chain is also good. Dirty's (Martin's Kum-Bak) near the UT campus is possibly my favorite. In KC I really like Winsteads. Best long gone place to me was Buddy's Steak Pit in Harvard Square; $2.00 for double half pound cheeseburgers!

If you are ever in OKC, check out Big Ed's. They have a really fantastic burger and the fries are the best you will ever have.

In Tarrant County, TX....Al's Hamburgers and Jackson's Grill - both in Arlington. Kinkaid's Grocery in Ft. Worth. All are worth getting off the Interstate for sure!

Try Mike's at the Yard in Petaluma. In the middle of the cattle auction yard, and greasy and great. Don't ask for fries! They do not serve them!

Bionic Burger in Wichita. They are big with just enough grease to take five years off your life. They have great chili burgers and cheese fries.

Early '80s and not very long. They tried to create a trendy upscale bar that just happened to serve Redamak's old fashioned hamburgers. If you're familiar with their original spot in New Buffalo, Michigan, the Chicago joint was a pretty ridiculous place.

On the other hand, I would HIGHLY recommend checking out the "real" Redamak's in New Buffalo! (BTW, I think they're closed from late fall through late spring. Confirmation anyone?)

If you want a truly GREAT RF burger you've got to visit the Cherry Cricket in Cherry Creek in Denver.

More ways to build your own burger than you can possibly imagine, plus about 80 different beers on their beer menu (nineteen on draft). If you crave a good burger in Denver this is the place!

Another great burger joint/bar is My Brother's Bar. They have a JCB (jalapeno cream cheese burger) but better yet is their Johnny Burger which has three cheeses including the jalapeno cream cheese and sauteed onions. You can "dress" your burger any way you like with condiments in a caddy at your table. Fries are pretty decent too.

I checked with a person that drives through New Buffalo about 6 times a month, they told me that Redamak's closed around october 15th for the season, Redamak's will reopen around March 1.

On Lincoln Ave, right? Been a long time. My brother and i used to go all the time before seeing a band at Lounge Ax or one of the many other great music places in the area. I'll never forget the time i took a first date to Redamaks...she loved the place- and me. Took me two years to free myself.

On the home page are some articles about Milwaukee's Solly's. Showing a picture of a butter dripping bun, it mentions that the bottom falls apart before you're done. Not neccessarily so. I'm sure most regulars order theirs on a "pillow" which is a hunk of french bread. The real regulars flip theirs upside down after getting their order. Excellent fries too! It's quite the burger, but I'll take a Mazo's, across from Leon's Frozen Custard, first any time. Its funny that while I love a great aged prime steak, a truly great burger or dog can sometimes be just as satisfying. From the lth forum

Solly's has an excellent banana malt, although I prefer Kewpee's in Racine or The Spot in Kenosha for my cheeseburger fix. Great greasy cheeseburgers with faster service at a fraction of the price. Both serve excellent chocolate malts.

When in Huntsville, AL, checkout Big Spring Cafe. Literlly a "hole in the wall". It has one table and about 8 stools at the bar. They have the best greasy burgers. They are small (about the size of a Krystal) and come w/mustard and onions (other ways if you request). Some people even ask for "extra greasy". I have to have my Big Spring Cafe fix aleast once a week. They also have great chili and slaw dogs.

I have traveled all over the world and we Americans are very lucky. The cheeseburger is the most perfect sandwich and no one cooks it better than here in America.

Whenever I've heard the phrase, "As American as Mom, apple pie and hot dogs", I always thought, "What about Cheeseburgers?" Cheeseburgers are way more American than hot dogs. Don't get me wrong, I love hot dogs; but as an American icon, the Cheeseburger has the edge.

As a kid and this is before McDonald's, You found alot more places serving Hot Dogs than Hamburgers. Baseball Parks, Football Stadiums, County Fairs, Carnivals, and even alot of snack bars in stores had Hot Dogs and not Hamburgers. If my memory serves me right,in the 1950's and early 1960's, Dairy Queen, Tastee Freeze and etc. serves Hot Dogs and not Hamburgers.

There is a local chain in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area called Kelly's whose burgers are hands down some of the best I have had. Big, Juicy good buns. They are also one of the few places left around here that will cook one rare. Its making me hungry just thinking of one.

I an a fan of Culvers cheeseburgers here in Northeast Wisconsin. The Checkered Flag also makes a great 3/4 ponder. And they go up from there. The Four Star right across the street from me makes a great bacon cheesebirger provided you tell them to keep it medium rare. Or I make my own out of 2 pounds of ground beef from the local meat market along with lipton beefy onion mix. And 2/3 cup of water.

When I am in SoCal I make it a point to hit a couple of the Farmer Boys Stands..mainly located in the 'Inland Empire' of San Berdo and Riverside counties. F B is a mini-chain and they make a great selection of Burgers and other sandwiches, Breakfasts for less than $5 that will fill me up with food to spare, Huge Sweet Onion Rings battered to order, and Zuccini spears done the same way. Janet loves their Taco Salads too. I also have enjoyed their rib-steak sandwich.

Clean and generally a comfortable dining area they make a decent place to eat cheap in that part of the country.

Milwaukee resident my entire life, I just had my first meal at Solly's. I got a Super Special...1/3 pound beef with lettuce/tomato & mayo...and of course, a pool of butter. In a way, I'm glad I had never had one before. I loved every bite!!! In my younger days when I had less control over my urges I would have become a regular. I can't imagine their regulars live too long. I, however,am trying to figure out how to stay away. I have, of course, made many visits to Kopp's, Culver's, & Mazo's...but I've never fallen so hard for a burger like Solly's Super Special before.

Hey Kools, ever had a double at the Nightowl?
Closed now for the season but mighty good.

The Solly's burger is neccessary evil every once in a while.
I got a long email, that checks out, touting butter over margarine as a more "healthy" choice.

Personally I find the meaty taste of Mazo's to be perhaps my all time favorite, but I'm always open to new choices. Welcome to Roadfood.
