QFan, talk anout timing; the local paper just printed a review of Lindburgers today. Rather than paste a a link to their site which may not work in the future, I copied and pasted the review for you.
I don't know if all Lindburgers are this good since it is a chain, but the local one in Penfield (a town outisde Rochester, NY) sounds decent.

(January 13, 2005) — Long before acclaimed chef Daniel Boulud introduced his $27 hamburger at his Manhattan DB Bistro Moderne, a modest Florida burger chain called Lindburgers was touting the gourmet burger in 50 variations. About six years ago, Michele and Larry Azzi opened a Penfield branch.
With burgers priced from $5.50 to $7.95 (including fries and pickle), Lindburgers can't compete with the black truffles and foie gras that Boulud loads in his, but the family restaurant does offer more choices than fast food outlets or local burger chains.
There are burgers with teriyaki and herbed cheese, burgers with chili and onions, burgers with béarnaise sauce, burgers with pineapple and sweet and sour sauce. (Who needs ketchup or mustard?) The best seller is the New Yorker (No. 22) with mushrooms, cheese and grilled onions. In keeping with local tradition, all are served on a Rochester hard roll (for you newcomers, that's a twist roll.)
The closest you can get to the DB is Lindburgers' No. 47, also known as the East Avenue burger, which is amply topped with black lumpfish caviar, sour cream and raw onions. There's no champagne on the menu, so I improvised with more pedestrian bubbly — a bottle of Sam Adams. Lindburgers also serves wine.
Really, the burgers themselves, not the toppings, are what shine. The certified Angus beef patties are large, thick and cooked the way you really want them. So if you want to throw caution to the wind and order yours rare (as I did), rest assured it will arrive with a cool, barely cooked center. Or, you can go completely raw, and ask for the tartare.
The restaurant's name and decor (historic aviation photos, paintings and airplane mobiles fashioned from soda cans), left me wondering whether Charles Lindbergh had a special yen for burgers. Larry Azzi says the connection is homonymic, as the founder, formerly a pilot, simply borrowed the famous aviator's name and respelled it. The paraphernalia is a big hit with diners, especially among "retired people, who see the pictures and start telling stories," says Azzi.
