Re:Best Hamburgers in the World
I am a dedicated "burger fanatic" and have been ever since I was a kid. My job used to take me all over the country, and that allowed me to sample hamburgers from coast to coast. Unfortunately, most of them were mediocre or, at best, just average. On rare occasions, though, I come across a really special burger, and I had the good fortune to do just that earlier this week. It's called the "Country Burger", and it's served at the Country House, a restaurant / bar in Clarenden Hills, just west of Chicago. The burger is a big, beautiful charbroiled half-pounder , available on either a toasted bun, or ( my preference ) dark Bavarian bread. I ordered it medium-rare, and that's exactly how I got it. The flavor was incredible; really beefy and absolutely delicious. Great steak fries and good cole slaw come with it. Very friendly staff, too. The Country House is on 55th St., just west of IL Route 83. Highly recommended.
