50 Burgers, 50 States - Mon, 05/11/09 6:36 PM

50 states, 50 burgers.....   (from the food network magazine)
Burgers All The Rage: Bobby Flay And “50 States”
 
I really enjoyed the "ultimate burger in every state" article (complete with pics!)
I was surprised the Bobcat Cafe burger did'nt win for New Mexico...(I'm still waiting to try that burger, and I'm expecting a LOT) At least the burger that DID win has GREEN CHILI'S on it ,  too...
 
It does'nt say who wrote this 50 states article in this June/July issue of the Food Network Magazine.
(I don't like when the author is not mentioned)
Bobby Flay wrote an article with hamburger recipes, but that's a bunch of pages before the 50 states leaflet..
 
Supposedly the best burger in PA is at the ROYAL TAVERN in Philly, right near Pat's and Gino's cheesesteaks..
the burger comes with a pickled "long hot" pepper on it . I'm VERY excited about trying it !
(almost even went there today!)
I'd never even heard of this place before, but reviews seem to be glowing...
"addictive" burger, etc..
 
I do plan to try the "best burger" in Mass.  next week;   "they" say it's at CHRISTOFER'S Restaurant and Bar in Cambridge...
(in Boston area, by Harvard).... I guess I'll do a doubleheader, cause I've got to see if Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage measures up to the hype..!
 
My bf said to me today "Now , THERE'S a mission for you !!"  .....
Ellen embarks on a 50 state burger tour !

Ellen, skip Bartley's and go right to RF O'Sullivan.  If there is enough interest, we should organize a quick meat and eat.

Stephen, 

I might be down with that.  On Friday or Saturday?  I've been to Bartley's many times.  I love their turkey sandwiches and dinner and their frappes, but I've never been a fan of their burgers.  Always charred on the outside and bloody rare inside.  I'd seen some great reviews of O'Sullivan's in my research for this trip.  I'm thinking about checking out a roast beef place too if time warrants.

Ellen, skip Bartley's and go right to RF O'Sullivan. 

Thanks for the hot tip, Stephen ! I'll DEFINITELY check out RF O'Sullivan's, since it comes "Stephen Rushmore" certified.  I just checked out their website, www.rf-osullivan.com  ; plus I read some of the dozens and dozens of reviews.... LOTS of mentions regarding their JUICY burgers.... I'm excited!
Even that "phantom gourmet" mystery diner was happy, cause it was about the only Boston area place that would make his burger RARE...
 
I found a great pic of RF O'Sullivan's burger on this blog page ..    www.circa1973.net/GBT2K5
My only concern is that it's too much of a good thing....too big to fit in any human beings' mouth!!
How does one even begin to bite into that big hunk of meat?!?
Hey, MICHAEL STERN, could THIS be the "Sullivan's" you referred to when you told me last year in Austin about the best burger you ever had in your LIFE?  You had said it was about 25 years ago, so you did'nt remember the exact name.....
 
One thing about Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage that really turns me off is the fact that supposedly there are NO bathrooms !!!!!  
Mr. Bartley's seems to be an overhyped place..... many who love it, but also many disssenters, huh?!?
(reviews of "too much of a greasy taste, hardly any beefy taste", etc)
 
What about this Christopher's Restaurant burger?!?
Hey, I may do a triple header!  ....
Watch out Boston, here comes Ellen ! (get those burgers and beef ribs on the grill!)
 
P.S. And while I'm in the Somerville area (RF Sullivan's) , I've gotta try a SPIKE'S JUNKYARD DOG !

The murder burger at Haven Brothers in Rhode Island?

I couldn't think of anything that's more ordinary...

Only been to three.  Johnnie's was very good.  In-N-Out and Winstead's were good for chains, but best in their states?

Clancy's in Farmington, NM.  Well, perhaps...But, it must be a fantastic burger to beat out my all time favorite burger...The Bob Cat Bite in Santa Fe.. 

I'll defer to the authors until I can compare it myself.  This is one state I definitely want to return to.  A beautiful place to visit with surprisingly underrated food.  We loved New Mexico!  Wouldn't mind living there either.

I like the premise.  What a great idea..Traveling to 50 states to find the 50 best burgers!!  We can all argue..Nobody is gonna win. 

Thanks for the article Ellen.

My pleasure, Baah Ben...
I've always wanted to try that Bob Cat Bite burger; I noted in the beginning of my spiel that I was also surprised it did not win "best burger in New Mexico"...
cause I've heard SO many good things about that green chili burger, mostly right here on this Roadfood site !
 
I like the premise, as well,  cause we can all relate, even those who don't travel that often, since every state is covered.
So "50 States"  should be able to strike a chord with almost everyone! (assuming one likes burgers!)

Winstead's isn't a Kansas burger and The Skyline in Portland isn't even close to the best in
Stumptown, much less the rest of Oregon. Food Network: fail.

I just looked at RF O'Sullivan's burger. Hoo-whee! Even my big mouth couldn't deal with that colossus. Does it taste as good as it looks?

Now you're seeing the light, WJ !
Burgers in L.A.  !!!!!
You, go, guy !
 
p.s. I was very happy to see  burgers mixed in with your wonderful L.A. trip report...
this site has been a little dead since then...(after that 9 part series of yours!)
(who could possibly top THAT?!?)
 
Hey, NOCAROLINA : I do find the size of that RF Sullivan's burger a little too overwhelming.... but I DO have it as my current desktop "background screen pic" on my computer!  And I WILL try one in Boston!

It does'nt say who wrote this 50 states article in this June/July issue of the Food Network Magazine.
(I don't like when the author is not mentioned)
 

 At the very end of the listings there is a list of contributors.

How could they pick some nondescript burger from Cincinnati when there's Crabill's in Urbana and the Beanie Burger in Gahanna?

Best (THICK PATTY) burgers in LA

1
2
3
4
5

Thanks

What about NYC inc Queens, Brooklyn, etc - THICK 1/3 LB AND UP) burgers? 

Steve Rushmore..I'd love to see your list.  Thank you!

Just a few that I've read about and/or heard from people....

1 Luger's - Has to be good!  I believe it's only served at lunch
2 JG Melon's - Flay's favorite - Others love it too - So did I
3 Spotted Pig - Heard really good things about this place
4 Old Homestead - Like Luger's - How can they have a bad burger
5 Nick's
6 PJ Clarke's - Use to be a standard...Heard mixed reviews
7. Jackson Hole - Forget the appearance - Enjoy that meat!

I'm interested in hearing from RF'ers...Their top picks mean more to me than these magazine lists.  Far less politics. 

Thanks to all willing to list your favorites

Nice looking burgers at the Eagles Deli in the Brighton section of Boston, on Man vs food they had a contest featuring the Eagles Challenge, 10 - 1/2 pound patties stacked with cheese and bacon, to complete the challenge you also have to finish the 5 pounds of fries that come with the meal.

Regarding that OLD HOMESTEAD burger you've heard about, Baah Ben :
It's a KOBE beef burger . The  PRICE ?!?  $41.00  !!

I'm fine with just good fresh ground chuck, or sirloin, thank you ....

Ellen - I have heard of that burger.  Don't they also serve a traditional burger?  That's what I was referring to.  No burger is worth $41 IMHO...

I will check their menu.... Yes, they have their "classic" burger..$15

Guess none of you have ever been to Howard's Big Burgers on Venice Bl near Sepulveda in West Los Angeles.

They're famous for their avocado, bacon burger but give it to me without the a and b and just give me lettuce and tomato.

Great burger or at least it used to be.

For a chain, I like Fatburger in LA.

Mo's in Burbank is also great if you like "stuff" on your burgers.  Horseradish with caviar or peanut butter and jelly come to mind.

I severely miss Woody's Smorgesburger.  Extremely.

So much that it depresses me.  That was my number one go to burger for 40 years.

mar52, I know how you feel. A few years ago, I lost my favorite burger place, the Come Back Inn in Melrose Park IL. It was an important part of my life for over thirty years.

I agree with you that no burger is worth $41 ! 
I did'nt realize the Old Homestead had a lunch menu, where that $15 burger appears . 
 
I'm used to going to their 2nd location, the one inside the Borgata Casino in AC.
The AC one is only open for dinner, and does not have that cheapie $15 burger , only the $41 Kobe one.    
 
The Old Homestead is the oldest steakhouse in NYC (maybe the whole country?!?)
They had that single location for over 100 years, before opening their 2nd location, the one in Atlantic City !  (there's some food for thought, huh?!?)

I've passed by Howard's countless times; love their big letter signage...
looks like I'll have to try it next time.  Good homestyle type burger?
(not charbroiled, I'm assuming?)
 
I used to LOVE Woody's , as well !!!
I've been to the one on Sepulveda Blvd , El Segundo; LAX area.
Great charbroiled taste, fun toppings bar (a la Fuddruckers)
 
I believe it might have even been YOU that enlightened me to the fact that there used to be other Woody's, as well.... like in culver city.
Apparently, that El Segundo one was the last one standing..
well, it's still standing, but it's an IHOP now .

Looks like I better step it up a bit, as I've only been to 4 places on your list !
(#1, 5, 12, and 15)

but  I'll probably be adding #3, RF O'Sullivan's, by Monday night!

Yeah, I've been to Salina, Lou ...
It was during one of my cross country driving stints when I moved back east from LA. 

I did'nt feel that Cozy Inn place was anything special, just okay..
(but I'm willing to give it another try)

I felt that way about the WHITE HUT in Springfield, Mass..
(it's not on these lists, but has been mentioned by Jane and Michael.... there is even a Roadfood newspaper clipping on the White Hut wall ...)

While I loved the grilled onions at the White Hut, both me and my Roadfood.com dining companion , rpalmer were underwhelmed by the burgers. He had remembered them being better tasting...
they were slider style , but I found the meat a little tough;
not juicy!

Hi Ellen - I agree with your comments on the White Hut.  I expected much more, and came away very underwhelmed by the experience.  They do a booth at the "Big E" - Eastern States Exposition, also - tried them again and felt the same. 
Now - Number 7 on the list - Harry's Place - IMHO one of the best burgers in CT. Also have hit 5, 12, and will be putting number 10 on my list for this summer!

The White Hut is what it is.  Suggest a better option in the category within miles and I'll be happy to explore it.

By "the category" I mean lunch counter, quick service, etc.

Surely, you are not suggesting I go to the McDonald's across the street.

I was in Salina, KS and stopped for gas.  I knew nothing about this town having one of the best burgers in the country!  Shame on me!  Opportunity lost.

The longest ride of my life..across Kansas.

I need to get out more.  Thank you, Michael for posting that list.

Ellen, Howard's is a flat grill burger.  Flavor from the meat and not from the char.

We'll stop for a burger on the way to the ribs!

So far just Philips Grocery, Hodad's, Burgerville, and Conway's Red Top. my local favorites in the Portland area are Stanich's, the Helvetia Tavern, and the Castagna Cafe.

There's many great burger places being listed on this thread, but I'm a bit surprised that no one's mentioned Redamak's in New Buffalo, Michigan. I had dinner there yesterday, and while I don't consider it one of the all-time great hamburgers, it's definitely an above-average burger worthy of attention from roadfooders. They grind their meat on the premises, and turn out a very tasty burger ( average diameter, but a half-inch thick. ) Good fries too. Redamak's is on US 12, not far from Michigan City IN, and is closed from November through February.

500 things to eat before u die. WOW it list the Pine Club in Dayton Ohio as a place to eat a burger. I never get past the steaks. Guess I will need to make a trip just for the burger now.

 Wonder if i can talk my wife into a 3 burger run. Pine Club, then on to Crabill's, then up to Lima for Kewpee.

I'd like to make a special request for your next burger shots...
(for YOU and all other Roadfood burger photographers..)
Can you take 2 pics, and lift the bun off the roll on the second pic?!?!
I'd love to see the meat!
(on the side where  there is no cheese)
Show me the meat, baby!

 Wonder if i can talk my wife into a 3 burger run. Pine Club, then on to Crabill's, then up to Lima for Kewpee.

I specialize in "3 burger" runs ! 
I just did one in the Boston area, in Cambridge , MA
 
You can always tell your wife that she can just have an iced tea, she does'nt have to try and keep up with you!Let's hope your wife is an understanding Roadfood spouse!

500 things to eat before u die. WOW it list the Pine Club in Dayton Ohio as a place to eat a burger. I never get past the steaks. Guess I will need to make a trip just for the burger now.

We get Pine Club ground beef on the way out after dinner.  It's ground from their steak trimmings.  They frown on it in the summer, since it's so perishable.  We get it, after promising to make it into patties and freeze it as soon as we get home, no matter how tired we are.  It makes an awesome grilled hamburger.  Never had one on site, but I would expect it to be wonderful.

Hey, Tony!!
I was just about to write you a personal e-mail to check up on you!!
 Had'nt seen you much on Roadfood these last bunch of weeks...
(but  maybe we've just been on different threads...)

How about a PG rated site, lol...
I just wanna see the beef, but I don't want to see the part where the sun don't shine..
show me that ground beef! (that sounds a lot better, right?!?)

Redamak's is listed in the George Motz's "Hamburger America" book.  It looks like a real Roadfood kind of place.

BB, I bought that book a few months back, and I still haven't had a chance to read it. One of these days....

Is that wonderful or what?  I was so sure that was really a song lyric that Ellen was quoting that I Googled it.  But, no, it came from Ellen's own head.

Glad you liked my crafty thoughts, Bruce!

Now we've just got to set those words to the beat of another song...
(perhaps "I love rock and roll, so put another dime in the jukebox, baby"..)
(Joan Jett and the Blackhearts)

alright, here we go....it's kareoke time...  "I'd LOVE to see the meat, so lift up the bun where the meat is , baby..... I'd love to see the meat....so come and take your time and eat with me..."   ....

A new Roadfood theme song for us?!?

Ellen, your wish is my command. I had lunch today at Paradise Pup, a hot dog stand in Des Plaines IL that was enthusiastically recommended to me by Buddy Roadhouse. The Pup has all the typical Windy City goodies ( Chicago-style dogs, Italian beef, etc. ), but they are locally famous for their one-third pound charcoal-broiled burgers.

I got my hamburger on the Bavarian bread instead of a bun, and it's garnished with mustard, ketchup, pickle and raw onion. A great burger and good fries too. As you requested, Ellen, here it is covered....

Ellen, I think you have a hit there!  Will you be at the Rochester/Buffalo tour?  That would be a good time for you to perform it.

An article in the local paper partially about the previously mentioned Redamak's.

I commend the list compiler for making an effort to be "regionally appropriate," [cue wanderingjew!] but I don't agree with the choice of the El Rey de las Fritas chain as making the best frita (think: Cuban slider) in town.  My choice would be Fritas Domino El Original at 936 SW 67th Avenue.  It's a real dive, but they have some kind of machine that makes really fine potato threads for frying that go on the fritas, instead of the more common shoe-string potatos (sometimes from a can!).
