For those of you who think the holiday season shouldn't start before Thanksgiving, more bad news.  I am starting my year end review early.  Since I only have one more trip planned this year (to Memphis & Arkansas for bbq and pie, but definitely not in that order) it seems my best burgers list should be done.
 
BEST BURGERS
 
10. Solly's Grille - Milwaukee, WI 

The butter burger they serve at Solly's is not for everyone.  I have been here with several different people and many of them thought the amount of butter on the burger was overwhelming.  Not me.  I love every butter drenched bite.  Actually, on the four visits I've made to Solly's over the years, this one undoubtedly had the least amount of butter.  
 
9. Matt's Bar - Minneapolis, MN

Sorry to post a photo of food that already has been bitten into, but with the Jucy Lucy, you need to see the inside of the burger to know what all the fuss is about.  Matt's is a wildly popular tavern that specializes in these cheese stuffed burgers.  We visited Matt's main competition, the The 5-8 Club a few days earlier and we found Matt's to be significantly better. 
 
8. Powers Hamburgers - Fort Wayne, IN

Powers Hamburgers is a tiny art deco building in downtown Fort Wayne that serves excellent sliders.  They give you so many fried onions on your burgers, that we heard several regulars come in and ask for "light on the onions".  I say, the more the better!
 
7. Wedl's Hamburger Stand - Jefferson, WI

No surprise that a great hamburger state like Wisconsin is well represented on this list.  This place is odd in that they have a seperate little building next to the street where they fry up the delicious burgers, while the main building just a few feet away has the rest of the menu, including the indoor seating.  The burgers are small and a double gives you the desired meat-to-bun ratio.  Just a great combination of lots of cheese, fried onions and high quality meat.
 
6. Redamak's - New Buffalo, MI

This one might be for sentimental reasons.  Immediately after eating this juicy double, with Velveeta cheese on it, I texted my brother and told him I found a burger that tastes just like the great cheeseburgers our now deceased father used to make. 
 
5. Le Tub - Hollywood, FL

One of the strangest decorated restaurants I have ever seen (there are toilets sitting around with flowers planted in them), Le Tub once was named best burger in the country by GQ magazine.  I'm not ready to go that far, but this was a terrific burger.  They obviously use very high quality meat and then grilled to the perfect temperature.  They are infamous for taking an hour or more to deliver your burger, but we had ours in a very reasonable amount of time. 
 
4. Port of Call - New Orleans, LA

In one of the darkest bars imaginable, I was lucky to get a seat next to the far backroom window to be able to take a decent photo.  This tall burger delivers excellent beefy flavor, but what really made it for me is the mushrooms sauteed in wine, butter and garlic.  It felt strange to be eating a burger in New Orleans, but I was over that after the first bite.  
 
3. Lankford Grocery - Houston, TX

My first visit here and I absolutely loved my big, messy, ultra-juicy double cheeseburger.  This is what a burger is supposed to taste like.  Great atmosphere, including our wonderful waitress who looks just like Granny Clampett, gets Lankford Grocery bonus points.  
 
2. Buckhorn Tavern - San Antonio, NM

Despite all of the fame this small place has received in the past few years, they still deliver one outstanding green chile cheeseburger.  Some people on the 2010 Roadfood bus tour even named this the best GCC we had on the tour.  
 
1. Bobcat Bite - Santa Fe, NM

To be honest, this competition was over the day the Roadfood powers that be announced that we were going to New Mexico for the 2010 Roadfood bus tour.  Spectacularly good burger that is the perfect combination of bun, high quality juicy beef, cheese and green chiles.  The fact that they have the friendliest staff in the world just adds to it.  The green chile cheeseburger here would be my death row meal. 
 
Honorable mention:
Paradise Pup - Des Plaines, IL
Northgate Soda Shop - Greenville, SC
Clamp's Hamburger Stand - New Milford, CT
Anchor Bar - Superior, WI
Hodad's - Ocean Beach, CA

Re:My year in Roadfood (2010) 2010/12/10 15:00:32
No, the chiles definitely gives some heat (and way more flavor), but just enough to tingle a little bit.  Nothing to really make you sweat.  I shouldn't assume that you would have no problem with them, because everyone's tolerance is different.  My girlfriend makes fun of me because I can't handle much heat.

They aren't capsaicin-free like bell peppers, but they aren't very spicy. I noticed a bit of a bite at Buckhorn Tavern, but I only noticed a slight glow at Bobcat Bite.

Hodad's always seems to get good ratings.
I was there earlier this year and found the only thing interesting about the burger was the hype.
 
It was just okay.  Greasy and okay.
 
However they have the absolute best chocolate malt I've ever had which would bring that burger up in ratings.

It took three of us to eat it.  BTW, I wouldn't call Hodad's a great burger, but I still think it is very good.  The atmosphere really is wonderful, though.

TJ,
IMHO the green chili's can be boosted in heat for those who want it by adding other peppers to the mixture, but served as the Chili-Verde that I have had, they compare to the large Anaheims used to make Chili-Rellanos and other large stuffed Mex Pepper dishes.  They have a LOT more flavor that the typical stuffed Bell or other type of 'Sweet Pepper'.

What?!?  Maybe they were trying to turn tables too quickly.  We were there last summer, and though there was a line, no one pushed us to leave.  But I do agree with Cliff about the burger: not a Top 10 pick -- what with such a stellar list assembled here -- but certainly delicious.    Chris

I stopped at Solly's several years ago.  A very nice place and since their butter burger was listed and talked about on Roadfood, I definately got it along with a nice vanilla milkshake.
 
No doubt about why the butter burger is called that.  It was delicious but soaked in butter.  Very goody and messy but very good.
 
The place was very attractive at that time.

Yay Cliff!  Great photos and description.  When I was in New Orleans back in October I taught a class to a small group that included a local, and on break I thoroughly debriefed her about where she goes within long-walking distance of the hotel, and Port of Call was one of the three or four places she strongly recommended, and in part with the always-a-good-thing 'the cops go there.'  I didn't make it that visit but I won't make that mistake again.
 
And in more good news, a cute little place in Columbia we like to visit, Davis' on Rosewood, started featuring a pimento cheese Juicy Lucy as a special, and we had it the other night, and it was scrumptious.  I love it when regional specialties travel well.

  " /> I don't know what these smileys are officially supposed to mean, but they show the way I felt after a GCCB at a LotaBurger in a town east of Albuquerque in 2005 or so. I thought it was going to take the top of my head off, and I'm from LA! Fortunately, I had asked for the GC on the side, so was able to use it judiciously. It was pure, fresh, crisp green chili, diced, and as hot as anything I've yet run across. Would I go back? Heck, yes!

So, Cliff, I am curious: are you basically anti-slider or do you see sliders in a different (perhaps inferior) category from big, juicy hamburgers or did you just not come across any worthy ones in the last year? -- Michael

Re:My year in Roadfood (2010) 2010/12/11 14:47:04
Great list. In the Twin Cities there are many debates about where the best Jucy Lucy is served. Matt's Bar gets the cred for claiming to originating it and giving its name. It most often gets the nod over the 5-8 Club as you mentioned but seldom over Casper and Runyon's The Nook in St. Paul. I much prefer the Nook. Next time go to The Nook.

Re:My year in Roadfood (2010) 2010/12/11 15:22:44
I'll second Davydd's rec for The Nook, although we actually like 5-8 Club's version over both Matt's and The Nook.
 
Also, howcum no mention of Tessaro's?  I mean, I know it's in your hometown so you didn't have to travel very far to get it, but this is Roadfood and not everybody is from Pittsburgh.  So, what might be local to you would be genuine Roadfood to the rest of us.  And you did eat that Tessaro's burger this year.  I know you did, 'cause I was there with you (and about ten other people).  I mean, they should at least get an Honorable Mention, doncha think?
 
Oh well, nice rundown, anyway.  And thanks for mentioning my backyard favorite, Paradise Pup!

You are right to notice that Tessaro's is missing from the list.  It was a last minute decision to omit it because it is my local place.  I really wanted to show burger places elsewhere, especially since I have written about Tessaro's so many times already.  Had it been on there, it would rank right up there with Le Tub and Port of Call.
 
Michael Stern-
Actually, I am very much pro-slider.  Besides Powers Hamburgers, I also made it to Crabill's (Urbana, OH) and Hunter House Hamburgers (Birmingham, MI), where we enjoyed these doubles, with plenty of fried onions.

It was just a matter of the competition being so fierce.

It was the only disappointing thing about it--I imagine since you're frying it with the cheese inside, your peppers need to be on point and they were using their excellent but usually served cold pimento cheese.   I think a stronger pepper for the JL is probably in order.

BEST DESSERT (NON-PIE DIVISION)

10. Juice N Fruit - Tucson, AZ

This is a raspados, which is a combination of shaved ice, a scoop of vanilla ice cream and the fruits of your choice.  Maybe my decision to go with plum and pineapple wasn't the ideal selection (even the young man making the raspados hesitated for a second and told me that was a new one to him), but it was an incredibly cool and refreshing snack on a hot Tucson day.  
 
9. Bauder Pharmacy - Des Moines, IA

My visit to Bauder Pharmacy was just a week before the Iowa State Fair.  Since they are famous for the peppermint bars they sell at their stand during the state fair, I asked if they happened to have any available now.  The young man told me no, but he would be happy to make me a sundae which approximates the candy.  Two scoops of their homemade delicious peppermint ice cream, covered by hot fudge and I was a happy boy!  Still, a return trip during the Iowa State Fair to try those peppermint bars is a must!  
 
8. Durgin Park - Boston, MA

I order Indian Pudding anytime it is on the menu, but the one they serve at Durgin Park still sets the standard.  The combination of the thick molasses-y pudding and the melting vanilla ice cream is wonderful, so make sure you get some of each in every bite!  
 
7. Sweatman's - Holly Hill, SC

The banana pudding served at Sweatman's has just the right amount of pudding, vanilla wafers and cut up bananas for my taste.  And at 99 cents for a small cup, is a real bargain.
 
6. Pico de Gallo - South Tucson, AZ

What looks like a simple cup of tall, cut up fruit (coconut, pineapple, mango and watermelon) is much more.  Sprinkled on top is some salt, lemon juice, but most importantly, a generous dose of chili powder, which really brings out the flavors of the fruit.  A stunning combination!  
 
5. Kick Ass Cupcakes - Somerville, MA

During an amazing eating weekend in Boston, led by Roadfood team members ayersian, the root beer float cupcake was what made the biggest impression.  It really did taste exactly like the world's best root beer float.   
 
4. Kopp's - Greenfield & Glendale, WI
 

During a week plus in Wisconsin, Cousin Johnny and I only managed to eat the fabulous frozen custard at Kopp's twice.  But, had we been there everyday, we still would have wanted more.  Going into the vacation, I would have probably told you that Leon's is slightly better.  Not anymore, I am now officially on board the Kopp's train!  The two flavors above are cookies & cream and (I'm not 100% on this) Orange Creamsicle.  
 
3. Buttonwood Farms - Griswold, CT

During a fast paced weekend of Roadfooding in Connecticut, Chris Ayers took me to about a half dozen high quality ice cream shops.  The clear #1 was the Graham Cracker Ice Cream served at Buttonwood Farms.  An odd flavor I have never seen anywhere else, it is chocolate covered bits of graham cracker in graham cracker flavored ice cream.  Strange, but delicious! 
 
2. Cafe Latte - St. Paul, MN

Cafe Latte has a huge selection of some of the best looking cakes you have ever seen.  I ate a slice of the Grasshopper Torte which was very good.  Then, The Travelin Man brought back this piece of chocolate cake and it blew mine out of the water.  Luckily, he was nice enough to share.   Ultra-moist and rich, this is the perfect slice of chocolate cake.  The only thing I can imagine a chocolate lover enjoying more, would be.....  
 
1. Hominy Grill - Charleston, SC

Easily, the best dessert I had last year and most likely the single best item of any kind.  This chocolate pudding is not too sweet, but deeply chocolatey like nothing else I have ever tasted.  ChiTownDiner and I actually came to Hominy Grill for breakfast, so this was being eaten at about 8:00AM!  
 
Honorable mention:
1. Caramel Cake - Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen (Louisville, KY)
2. Date Shake - Shields Date Gardens (Indio, CA)
3. Coffee Brownie Ice Cream - Harry's Roadhouse (Santa Fe, NM)
4. Gateau Sirop - Cafe des Amis (Breaux Bridge, LA)
5. Whoopie Pie Cake - Becky's (Portland, ME)

You are an evil person!  I want one of each except for the cup of fruit.
 
In Los Angeles we have push cart fruit vendors on many corners. You choose the fruit, the cut it up and top it with any combination of salt, chili powder and lime juice that you'd like.
 
My only problem with it is that they serve it in a baggy.
 
I've never seen Indian Pudding in person or on a menu.  I'll have to try that if it ever makes an appearance.

Out here in Mexi-zona, you can buy the fruit seasoning in the grocery stores. The brand is Tajin, Salsa en polvo Fruit Seasoning. It contains dried Chili Peppers, Salt & Dehydrated Lime Juice. It's imported from Mexico by Mexilink, Houston TX, a major importer of Mexican Food Products with ties to US companies like Hersheys and Dannon.

I suppose it's available all over the Southwest & California.
