What is that place in Pasadena next to the Northwoods Inn that's in the shape of a boat? I used to love their chiliburgers. That was my favorite burger of all time. They also had red cabbage, tamales, and freezing beer goblets. But great burgers. Liked them more than Tommy's and In-n-Out.

    Sorry saps but a discerning diner told me on good authority that 5 guys were better.
    But I'm sure that Trencher is correct in his statement that there are no good burgers after his list of 3 FF choices, plus his main squeeze's.<insert sarcasm here>

    Hey CSD, don't forget Fred's Parkview in Burlington, Mazo's in Milwaukee and I'd throw in the Serbian hamburger at the Balkan in Greenfield.

    Hey my preview showed musical notes (done using Alt + 14) in that second last sentence. O well. I tried.

      I can't think of five without going for the classics like In-n-Out, White Castle and Five Guys, so I'll just go back to my favorite...

      Frisco Freddies in Fairborn, Ohio. Used to be a Lums - god knows what it is now, but they had the Potato Skin burger w/o the potato. Toasted buns, sour cream, juicy 1/2 lb burger, bacon and real cheddar.

        Hutt's in Austin, TX (as far as somewhere you can actually find).

        As for me, the hole-in-the-wall places do it right. We frequent a place called the Little Store in Sherman, TX. This is the type of place that has lawyers and highway workers standing in the same line....and I mean LONG line! Imagine griddle fried patties AND buns, topped with plenty of fresh chopped onions and MUSTARD with just enough grease seeping through the paper bag as to give away the contents within.
        When our relatives visit from up north they usually make a beeline to this place saying they can't get anything like this at home!

          Not sure how consistent they are with quality, but the best hamburger I've ever had was at Original Joe's in San Francisco.
          Juicy, great flavor, and great bread. Only needed a little dab of ketchup, if that.

              Good call on Hut's. I had forgotten about them. If they aren't in my top five, they are knocking on the door. Great milkshakes, too!

                A couple of Red Robin's burgers are outstanding. On the other hand, some of them are really bad (like the shroom burger, which I think they used CANNED mushrooms on).

                  Val's Burgers in Hayward, CA, as at least one other person has mentioned, makes a good, solid old fashioned burger.

                  Zuni Cafe in San Francisco is a more up-market rendition, served on focaccia bread and I love that one too.

                  Hires Big H in SLC, Utah makes good burgers and excellent real fries and onion rings.

                  For some reason, I have never been to Original Joe's in the City; I'll have to do something about that.

                      1) Town Topic - Downtown KC
                      - Your cardiologist will not like you eating here. Greasy beef, greasy cheese, greasy fries and greasy buns. I don't know how they coat everything in grease, but it tastes so good.

                      2) Westport Flea Market - Westport, MO (KC)
                      - Not as greasy as Town Topic, but almost as flavorful. Smear some homemade Thousand Island dressing on your Flea Burger and enjoy.

                      3) Winstead's - KC area
                      - The review on the site says it best. Double Winstead with mayo and grilled onions, fifty/fifty (half rings/half fries) and a limeaide.

                      4) Cozy Inn - Salina KS
                      - Warning for those new to Cozy Inn. Do not go inside. If you have to go inside, make your visit as brief as possible. Do not drive a long distance with the burgers in your car. Drive with all of your windows down no matter what the weather and distance. If you do not follow these warnings, then the smell of delicious beef and onion will be permanently impregnanted in your clothing and uphostery.

                      5) Home Field - Great Bend, KS
                      - If it was still open, I would have said "Al's Drive In" in Great Bend but Al's closed a few years ago. Home Field is a very close to an Al's burger so it will have to do. To me, this is the epitomy of the classic bar burger. The only thing missing from it's artery clogging goodness is the chili that you could add to Al's burger.

                        If you're a hamburger fan, or even if you're not, you owe yourself a Ranger Burger from the Four Winds Restaurant in Cusseta, Georgia. Not only are they fantabulous burgers, but if you're a big eater you'll enjoy the challenge of finishing it. If you're not, you'll have some great leftovers for later. Great fries and tea top it off. Yum!!

                            McHale's in NYC is closing down, if not closed, but a great burger is at the Corner Bistro.

                              problem is that it is so hard to get thru the door at the Corner Bistro ........literally.......it was packed ,and I could not even squeeze in to get in the place; very tight quarters....

                                The recently opened, "Twisted Root Burger Co." in Dallas.
                                This place is "off the chart" for fabulous 1/2 lb. burgers made from ostrich or buffalo or locally raised hormone free grass fed Black Angus" beef.

                                      Charcoal Inn North or South?
                                      Would they be as good without City Bakery hard rolls which may not be the worlds best, but they sure are the best I've ever tasted.

                                          Hodad's burgers, Ocean Beach, CA (san diego beach area)








                                          by Sea World) Hodad's
                                          Many feel this is one of the best burgers around....

                                          I loved the messiness factor....
                                          tried a burger there during my visit in April(see pic!) then again in June...
                                          I also loved the casual, laid back beach atmosphere. You sit on long
                                          shiny wood type picnic tables, then a "beach dude" type of guy takes your order. And I love all the catchy sayings on the license plates on the walls.
                                          The actual taste of the burger does'nt quite do it for me.
                                          I liked it, but did'nt love it. Thought it could have had a more beefy flavor. And the juices seem to just stick to that outer circle of the burger.....started tasting dried out when I got towards the middle...

                                          This is one of those places you must judge for yourself.... cause this is IMO, and the place is very popular

                                                            I lived in Pensacola for 16 years and can vouch for McGuire's Irish Pub. ALL the grub there is good and it's a fun place in the evening. Another good joint is Jerry's Drive In for Burgers on Cervantes St. Good fries and chili/soups too. Hope both places survived the last hurricanes
