Yet another top 10 burger list (MSN) Tue, 09/9/08 8:06 PM (permalink)
http://cityguides.msn.com/citylife/article.aspx?cp-documentid=9805654>1=24000

Bobcat Bite
Santa Fe, NM

The White Spot
Charlottesville, VA

The Apple Pan
Los Angeles, CA

P.J. Clarke's
NY, NY

White Manna
Hackensack, NJ

Joe's Cable Car Restaurant
San Francisco, CA

Billy Goat Tavern & Grill
Chicago, IL

Sid's Diner
El Reno, OK

Dyer's Burgers
Memphis, TN

Eastside Big Tom's
Olympia, WA

As a side note, I'm not convinced Big Tom's is even the best burger in Olympia let alone a top 10 nationwide joint. I think they picked it more for their "goop" than the actual burger. Not a big fan of that concoction at all but folks go nuts for it around here.

    They got the one at the top of the list right on the $$ IMHO..Medium Rare Green Chili Cheeseburger

      Bobcat Bite's a classic and a must-stop.

        While the place may be legendary for reasons not related to the quality of the food, having gone to the Billy Goat Tavern while in Chicago a couple weeks ago, I can't imagine their burgers being anywhere near the best ones in the country, let alone the best ones I've had.

            The Apple Pan and Joe's Cable Car are certainly not even the best burgers in California, much less the country. Like most of these lists: kinda dopey.

              White Spot's "Gusburgers" made the list? I think I still have indigestion from the last one I ate in 1974 when I finished up at the U.

                The best "Roadfood" is finding a place with history, unique, not far out of your way/easy access, good food, quick service, and inexpensive. If that is what you are looking for, you would be missing something if you did not to go to White Manna while in NE NJ.
