Of those burgers on their list, I still like Five Guys the best. Shake Shack could be good, but every time I've tried one (5 or 6 times), the bun is WET for some reason. I keeping thinking that the next time it won't be wet, ... but nope. It's always wet. Are they steaming / over steaming them? I tried Smashburger once at a location in the Miami suburbs. It was just okay. Didn't care for that brioche-like bun, plus my order was wrong. I'll give 'em another try, as it might have just been a case of one bad employee. In 'N Out was okay, but nothing special. It's very "fast food-ish" ...only a slight notch above a McDs, BK, etc. I have not tried it, but any pic I have seen of a Umami burger turns my stomch. Looks like a pile of wet, undercooked goo on one of those dry bricohe buns that are annoyingly becoming more and more common in burger places.
