Bunsen Burgers on Walzem Road in San Antonio, meat is fresh ground, and homemade buns.The Sweet potato fries were good too. EZ's Brick Oven Grill is good, it's a local chain.Bunsen Burgers is not. Haven't tried The Lord's Kitchen yet.
And i make a pretty mean burger at home. If I use ground sirloin I cook it medium rare or medium.Add my own fixings to it, with homemade oven baked fries, yum yum.Better than McDonald's by a long shot.

            I'll only speak for St. Louis, MO

            O'Connell's - BIG juicy bar burger
            Village Bar - smaller greasy bar burger (and great onion rings)
            Carl's Drive In - small, crispy edged burger
            Graham's Grill - not the burger, but the "grillers" w/grilled onions/cheese

              "Gourmet Burgers" - I always order the bone-in Rib-Eye at the fine dining places that offer a "fancy burger".
              "Burger-focused" places that offer table service:  Twisted Root in Dallas.

              "Fast-Food" joints:  Five Guys and Inn 'n Out.

              "Thin pattie, cooked to a crisp": Dairy Queen, Culver's, and Baker's Drive-in of McKinney, TX.

                  2. Flaming Grill sirloin melt, Sacramento CA
                  3. Jim-Denny's Joey burger, Sacramento CA  best commercial, too
