Contest: It’s National Cheeseburger Day – Tell Us Your Favorite Burger, Win a Nexus 7 8GB (Update: Winner Picked)

In case you didn’t know, today is National Cheeseburger Day. To someone like me, a self-proclaimed cheeseburger guru, this is one of the greatest “holidays” of the year, because it means that I’m on my way to gorging myself on the finest burgers that Portland has to offer. But being that I’m in the tech industry and travel quite often to cities across this beautiful country, I’m always on the hunt for the best burger in the next city that I visit. So in the most selfish of ways, I’m using the DL community to find out where your favorite burger spots are, so that if I end up visiting a town near you, I’ll have a list of spots to check out.

But to make it worth your while, I figured we’d give away a Nexus 7 8GB to one of the lucky readers that leaves a comment. Sound good?  


Winner: We have our winner! His name is Mike Kilar and he showed us that you don’t have to go anywhere besides your very own kitchen to have a great cheeseburger. He has included a picture as well! Congrats, Mike! Thanks to the over 3000+ comments/entries we received. We’ll go to as many of these spots as possible!

Prize:  1 (one) Nexus 7 8GB tablet

How to enter:

1.  Tell me what your favorite burger is, from what town and restaurant, and why it was the best ever.
2.  Feel free to follow us on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook if you aren’t already.


We will choose a winner randomly tomorrow at 12:00PM PT. Good luck!

    My fav burger is a Smashburger. There’s something magical about the flavor of the meat. I like to order a large patty so that a little hangs over the bun and I can eat it plain. I mean, come on, when’s the last time you looked forward to eating a PLAIN burger!?

    Honorable mention: Slater’s 50/50 PB&J Bacon Burger. There’s a lot going on, but damn it’s good.

  • Norcal – Sacramento – Squeeze Inn, nice meaty pattie with a melted cheddar cheese Skirt
    Socal – La Habra – G-burger – monster gourmet burger with choice of cheese and truckload of toppings
    CA – in and out – cheeseburgers are fast and fresh,

  • Didn’t see my post after I posted so again, five guys double cheese burger please 🙂

  • Best burger I had was the one I made. Grilled onions, 6oz. patty, some cheese, and A1 sauce. Made it at Lester’s Grill outside of Jasper, FL.

  • Kobe Beef Bacon Cheeseburger on a pretzel bread bun!!

  • I like the mcrib from mickey d’s

  • that one in the picture looks fantastic. So that one, put a picture of a different on eup and I would eat that one as well.

  • The best burger I’ve had in Spokane, WA is at Waddell’s Pub and Grill. It’s their Chef’s Signature Lamb Burger: A juicy 6oz lamb pattie grilled to perfection with warm feta cheese,
    romaine, tomato, diced red onion, cucumber slices and sour cream then
    drizzled with a zesty balsamic glaze on a toasted bun. Select a pint from one of their 50 taps and you are set to go.

  • Best burger ever was the Hardees Memphis BBQ. boo yah heart attack!

  • Dustin Arnold

    Local place (Paducah, KY) called “The Station” themed after firefighters and local heroes. They take Burger meat and mix it with ground up bacon. My personal burger of choice is the “402 Station Arson” 2x 1/3 lb bacon meat patties topped with grilled jalapenos and pepper jack cheese with all the fixings. I travel all over East US and i’ve never had a better burger. I mean everyone loves bacon and everyone loves burger why not put bacon IN the burger instead of on. Double Win imo.

  • Rtegra

    In & Out… That’s what it’s all about!

  • Eric Soriano

    Bacon Double cheeseburger with lettuce, tomatos, ketchup, mustard, mayo, grilled onions from Five Guys!

  • The best burger is the one I make at home! Ground beef stuffed with bacon and cream cheese topped with sharp cheddar, crispy onion strings, avacado and sauteed mushrooms! It doesnt get any better!

  • Im a huge fan of hardees monster burger in vincennes, in. Terrible for me… but so awesome. Bacon strips. Bacon strips. Bacon strips.

  • thesailingboss

  • Mike Kilar

    Hello Droid Life. With ~3100 comments, not sure if you will see or read mine but here goes…

    This is my burger entry from last nights dinner
    I make all my burgers myself here in Las Vegas.
    Time to break it down…
    I start with 96/4 ground beef. Add one egg, crumbled blue cheese and bacon pieces.
    Grilled medium well.
    The bottom of the bun is hollowed out to accommodate the burger patty.
    A slice of amish swiss cheese on each side of the meat.
    Next I piled on 3 pieces of thick cut, peppered bacon that I cooked up in the oven.
    After that is a few slices of fresh tomatoes and avocado.
    Some baby arugula for greens and some pickles on top to hold it down.
    The top bun has a mixture of mayo and A-1 spread.
    The bun itself is a kaiser roll with cheese baked on from the local bakery.
    It was a great dinner. I rarely go out for burgers because mine are better than any place I know.
    If you are ever in Vegas and want a fresh hand crafted burger, stop on by. First ones on the house!

  • Taka

    I would say Teddys Bigger Burgers in Honolulu is my favorite. Although i live in Hawaii so we are deprived of the epic sounding burgers listed here…

  • Brian

    Raleigh NC – Chucks!

  • Grover’s Bar and Grill in Buffalo, NY! It is by far the most beautiful, absolutely delicious burger I have ever ate. It’s the perfect burger cooked to perfection the way you like it… medium rare for me. With lettuce, onions, tomato, smoked thick cut bacon and cheddar cheese. No need for ketchup the flavors all in the beef. Oh and its always about the size of your face. om nom nom:]

  • area52

    5 guys double bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions cause who doesn’t need an extra 2000+ calories in a meal

  • PalmerAdam

    Anything from Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh because french fries and coleslaw are your primary condiments! Ketchup is a forbidden word there.

  • The Crab Burger from Riptide by the Bay in Baltimore. How can you go wrong with Burger, Cheese, Bacon and a Crabcake all on one bun? That’s all that matters right there.

  • If you’re in California, you’ll want to find an In-N-Out and order a double-double and fries animal style. A double-double is double meat and double cheese. Animal style is where the burger comes with hand-leafed lettuce, tomato, a mustard cooked beef patty, pickles, extra spread and grilled onions.
    A double-double animal style is the best cheeseburger in California bar none!

  • Patrick Maher

    Duane’s Ono-Char Burger in Anahola, Hawaii. They have a lot of options so you can customize your burger the way you want it. Also has good fries and shakes.

  • burger at little owl in nyc

  • Dcvolcom909

    In Cathedral City there is a place called Frickleburger and the best burger is the “happy hubby”. It’s the best because they pile on everything you need to have a heart attack on the spot!

  • tnuts22

    Three cheese cheeseburger from fudruckers in St. Louis MO …. three cheeses and all the toppings u want …. what’s not to love

  • Burntoast

    In n out is the spot to try for a classic take on a cheese burger

  • Jason Whiting

    Rams Brewery
    Schaumburg, IL

    Great burgers and fresh brewed beers : )

  • Red Mill Burger in Seattle because the banana milkshake deluxe burger combo is drool-inducing.

  • Droidx

    Where: Burger King, USA
    Why: The taste.

  • bheider

    In the distant land of Sunderland, MA, located just north of the college town Amherst, MA, there is a place called Bub’s BBQ which has the freshest, thickest, juiciest, handmade burgers covered with a “I don’t know how they make it so good” BBQ sauce and topped with caramelized onions on fresh toasted buns. I have never had a better burger…Plus steak fries!

  • michelle

    classic cheeseburger at westside tavern in LA!

  • YariCavi

    Big One from The Original Hamburger Works in Phoenix, Arizona because it’s a big slab of meat, mesquite broiled, and you put as little or many vegitables you want.

  • 5 Guys Burgers and Fries are by far the best. Actually had some for my national burger day.

  • Greyhame

    Big Oscar from Oscar’s in Milwaukee, WI. Toasted bun with a third pound patty, and some chorizo mixed in. It’s da bomb!

  • brains76

    A Luther (Vandross) from Crave Burgers IN Colorado Springs.

    A Nice Juicy Burger with Fried Egg, Bacon, and Onion between two Krispy Kreme Glazed Doughnuts… DAMN!

    Or any burger there or at Smashburger.

  • The best hamburger that I have ever had is the Kitchen Door Hamburger at The Kitchen Door (
    http://www.kitchendoornapa.com/ ) located in the Oxbow Public Market in Napa, CA.

    The asian version is the best to me. It includes pork belly on top of the beef patty, a lime aioli, teriyaki sauce and kimchi, cabbage and cucumbers. The burger is moist and tasty, I think they use a chuck. It’s grilled over mesquite and on a sourdough bun. Unreal.

  • Raven

    For me, it has to be the 42 Grill in a little town called Tioga, ND. All of their burgers are great because they literally raise their own cattle and grind their own beef. One of my favorites is their 50-50 burger with bacon mixed in the patty and cheese and more smoked bacon on top.

  • SL1200

    The White Trash Burger at Burger Jones in Minneapolis, MN

    This burger is equipped with chicken-fried bacon, fried cheese curds and a ton of Velveeta cheese! There is also the option for the double wide version! Need I say more??


  • Brandon White

    Rheas Special from Rheas in Roswell, Ga. Can’t explain why its good, its just an experience you have to try for yourself.

  • smashingplanets

    Burgerville tillamook cheeseburger is the best. The shakes are pretty awesome as well. Come to PDX and taste for yourself!

  • Culvers makes a pretty good cheese burger and you can finish off the meal with some very good frozen custard.

  • Alden

    Father’s Office, Santa Monica, CA
    Perfectly Cooked Burger topped with a Caramelized Onion & Bacon Compote finished with Guerrier & Blue Cheese… such a guilty pleasure

  • My favorite burger is either a Chili’s Southwestern Burger or a Super Sonic Cheesburger from Sonic…..then again I may be biased…….

  • paul_cus

    Three Aces bar in Chicago. The bacon jam puts the burger over the top.

  • Best I’ve ever had was at a small mom and pop cafe here in Montana. Name of the town was Sun River and the name of the place was Ginger’s.There was never a real name for it but the cooks just called it The “Special” Burger. It was an 8oz sausage patty (not technically burger but close enough) with a piece of American Cheese, another 8oz sausage patty, another piece of cheese, followed by some thin sliced and grilled ham, piece of cheese, two fried eggs, and yet anothe piece of cheese. All this on either texas toast or kaiser bun. All I can say is it was most glorious.

  • Chris Kimura

    My pick for the burger is from a little restaurant in glendale restaurant called bashan. The half pound burger is really simple but its cooked really well and come with a roasted onion, gruyere, and choice of several toppings all on a brioche bun….droool

  • Joe Avery

    Another is Nation’s. They are open 24 x 7 in most locations. Breakfast is good there too but their Burgers are great. They do a full cut of onions, three huge slightly es of tomato and half head of lettuce so you have to open it and trim it back to your liking but its excellent.

  • Culver’s ButterBurger cheeseburger!

  • Joe Avery

    Squeeze In in Tracy CA. There are a few around, its a franchise, but this one has great employees (its a family) . Get a double with one cheese blanket, amazing.
    The reason its the best is they take a 8-10 inch price of cheese and set it on the Burger on the grill. Cheese cooks a bit and its just awesome. Look it up if your ever between Sacramento Cal and the east bay.

  • any bacon cheeseburger will do..

  • dkoufos41

    The best burger I ever had was the bandito burger from Wild Wiley’s in Worcester MA. The mix between Angus beef, bacon, cheddar cheese and grilled onions was to die for.

  • Nick O.

    Where: SoCal

    Why: Everything is fresh and delicious, including their fries. All of their suppliers are within a days drive to their restaurants and everything is handmade so you know it’s all good.

    The Burger: In-N-Out’s 4×4 burger with whole grilled onions, animal style fries, and a Neapolitan milk shake to wash it all down.

    You can’t go wrong with this combo for when you’re slightly intoxicated or have the *ahem* munchies. It’s a Southern California staple.

  • Peter Nguyen

    The best burger is the huey louie andouille at Coles in Buffalo ny. I love the mix of the beef with the spiciness and flavor of the andouille sausage. Would love to eat one now.

  • Mark

    Almost missed this! Who wouldn’t want a free Nexus 7????
    My favorite near me (and I’ve had a lot of cheeseburgers around the country) is from Wild Willy’s in Rochester, NH (out on the coast). It’s called “Wicked Good,” with

    sauteed onions and mushrooms with Swiss and Cheddar cheeses. I always get a drop of hot sauce thrown in, and you can’t do better! Oh, and a little guacamole thrown in doesn’t hurt my feelings at all either. Fresh, juicy ‘n good! Man, I’m hungry.

  • Dan

    best burger I ever had was a greasy fat dripping plain cheeseburger grilled on an open grill in the rain at the Minnesota state fair back in 1980 or so. But then my memory may be fading. I’ll take a royal robin with pepper jack any day of the week.

  • Minneta Tavern in New York City. Just read the description:
    “Black Label Burger $26selection of prime dry-aged beef cuts with caramelized onions and
    pommes frites”

    Stupidly expensive, but stupidly good.

  • Randy Nguyen

    I could go for an In n Out burger, animal style, whole grilled onions, chopped chillies and extra toasted bun.

  • Jason

    Cajun Jason at the Berkeley cafe in Raleigh, nc. Cuz it’s named after me.

  • Buckazui

    Calamity Janes in between Portland and zigzag Oregon i had the blue cheese burger with their home made blue cheese it was amazing the list of burgers there is huge and you can get any amount or type of pattys including veggie blackbean chicken or my favorite BEEF! it was a fun place to eat and the food was amazing i highly recommend it.


    The best burger is from Hardware in Buffalo, NY. Instead of giving you a limited selection of burgers they list the burger and anything you can put on top. Personal favorite is a Medium-Rare burger with Sage Derby cheese, a portabello mushroom and some carmelized onions.

  • I’d say the best burger I’ve ever had would probably be my dad’s bacon and ranch cheeseburgers. But if we’re talking about a restaurant i’m going to have to say Five Guys Burger and Fries. Seriously their bacon cheese burger is amazing, topped with bbq sauce!

  • Paul

    the lamb burger from golden state on fairfax in LA. only available thursdays. colorado lamb with spices + gruyere + bell peppers + argula + yogurt sauce = party in your mouth. wash it down with an old rasputin beer float after.

  • Terry Tang

    This place called Smashburger in my local town just opened up in Thousand Oaks, CA. Everything about it is amazing, patty cooked to a perfect med rare. Very tender and juicy and just full of flavor. I build my own with Lettuce, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos and sweet relish… oh and dont forget the smash sauce.

  • Well, they kinda moved and haven’t had it I’m forever… but Vickis burgers in Montgomery AL has the best burgers and a good price. Just a basic burger.

  • wonderGirl412

    Crown burgers in SLC is great! Pastrami on a burger cannot be beat

  • Jenny

    The best burger is the Teryaki burger from Red Robin in Greenfield Wisconsin, I love that the burger is marinated with the teryaki sauce, cheese and a grilled pineapple. Mmmm good!

  • jonboi78

    My favorite burger is from Flip Burger Boutique. For those of you who are Top Chef fans, Richard Blais owns and opened this place in Atlanta and they have the BEST burgers ever. My favorite is the butcher cut, crumbled bleu cheese, carmelized onions, soy truffle vinagrette, frisee, pickled shallots, and red wine jam. It is so awesome!!

  • PS

    Fort Lauderdale, FL – Jack’s Old Fashion Hamburgers – By far the best simple, no crazy toppings, greasy, burger. Hard to beat anywhere in the country.
    Boca Raton/Deerfield Beach, FL – Charm City Burger Company – opposite of Jack’s, but equally awesome. Great high-quality meat, but the chef has some awesome topping and sauce combos that will blow your mind. Competed against Food Network for their South Beach Festival.
    If you are in South Florida, you’re crazy if you don’t stop at at least one of these places.

  • Fern

    I don’t normally eat burgers but when I do, I prefer In-N-Out…stay hungry my friends.

    Where: All over SoCal
    Why: Freshly made with fresh ingredients. A double, double with grilled onions…yum! And I do love their fries…also fresh!

    • CivilDroid

      I had to!

  • rdnckcub

    the best burger is where i live in monroe, WI at a small tex mex place called pancho and lefty’s, it’s the popper burger! complete with fried jalepenoes, pepper jack, and cream cheese on top a kaiser bun!

  • Butters

    My favorite burger has to be from Rocky’s Pub in San Diego!

  • Daniel

    Timoty Dean Burgers In Largo, Maryland

  • Thegingerninja83

    My own variation on the Juicy Lucy. 2 hamburger patties with shreds of bacon and cheddar cheese sandwiched in between the patties. It just tastes so damn good

  • bevans623

    I gave up meat about a year ago… and discussions like this make me miss it a little. Best vegan cheese”burger” is the Oklahoma Bacon Cheeseburger. I know, how can a cheeseburger be vegan, right? But this one is and it’s better than any regular burger I’ve had. Even people who aren’t vegan can’t tell the difference.

  • DD

    burger from Fathers Office in Santa Monica! Here’s a review:

    Before every Los Angeles pub was “gastro,” chef/owner Sang Yoon was hellbent on creating not just a better burger but the best burger. He came up with a formidable combination of sweet onion jam, Gruyere and Maytag blue cheeses, smoky bacon, arugula and tomato compote on top of dry-aged beef. Since then, everyone has either been imitating, trying to improve on or bellying up to the bar for a bite. 1018 Montana Ave., Santa Monica. (310) 393-2337; 3229 Helms Ave., Los Angeles. (310) 736-222.

  • Mario Charnell-Delgado

    The Smoker from Lunchbox Laboratory in Seattle. Smoky and savory with no extra, unnecessary toppings to distract from the flavors of the meat and cheese. Delightfully simple.

  • supra_2nr

    Best Burger I have ever had is the All American Girl Burger at babys badass burgers… a food truck in LA

  • BurnBabyBurn

    Silver Star Grill in Half Moon Bay. Great organic ingredients, awesome owner & staff and just damn good. And you can take it to the bar next door and wash it down with a brew.

  • middlehead

    My favorite burger is one I make myself. Second to that would be a local joint in my home town.

  • Andy Blystone

    If your are ever passing through Frewsburg NY stop by the Rio for one of 40 different internationally themed burgers. my favorite is #27 The Dora Wat!


  • Leo Freitas

    Burgerfi, Delray Beach, Fl. Burger is made from natural burger DELICIUS. Beat burger I over had

  • StereoPC

    The best burger around Buffalo NY area is from Grovers. I haven’t traveled much but I have traveled the east coast extensively and it’s always a pleasure to come home to Grovers and their food …. especially their burgers. Yuuummmmm.

  • Black and Bleu burger from The Blue Tractor in Traverse City, MI. It’s the best because IT HAS BLEU CHEESE and greasy, obviously.

  • chris boyer

    St.John’s, Santa Clara Calif.

  • Josh Roberson

    Blanc in Leawood, Kansas has some pretty awesome burgers. They used to have one called ‘The Barnyard’ that comes with ham, bacon and eggs on top of a burger on a brioche bun – it’s amazing. You can still order it off menu, but they don’t have the ham anymore.

  • Alex

    All American Burger Long Island, Delicious Burger! (Each First Letter Must Be Capitalized In This Comment!)

  • The best burger I’ve had was from Washington Square Tavern in Brookline, MA. It had no bells and whistles, it was just awesome. They didn’t squeeze any of the juice out of it, so it was somewhat rounder than most of the burgers that I have eaten, but biting into it the first time, I knew that it was the best burger that I had ever tried.

  • Mason Lammers

    My favorite burger comes from a town in western Nebraska called Paxton. Ole’s Big Game Steakhouse and Lounge has won best burger in the state multiple times (although it was beat this year) it still is one of the tastiest. The town has a population of 614 people so it may not be the most known restaurant but interesting fact is Denver International Airport (DIA) has a map of the country and the only icon for the entire state of Nebraska is Ole’s. The original owner has a mount from every continent in the world and is most famous for his full body Polar Bear mount. It was also the first liquor license in the state following prohibition. The burger is 100% USDA Omaha Beef, a couple breaded onion rings, cheese and some barbeque sauce… Plus all the fixings you may need on the side to add to your own preference.

  • Adam Pereyra

    Umami Burger in Santa Ana, CA (it’s a newer gourmet chain, so I’m sure there are a few around now) But their “Manly Burger” is the best! Fresh ground meat daily, buttered and toasted bun, bacon lardon, smoked salt onion strings and BEER cheddar… I need to get one today for lunch!

  • umataro42

    I don’t know if its too late to enter for the contest, but I’d still like to share my favorite cheeseburgers.

    I’d have to say my favorite was in Windham, ME at Friendly’s, the Grilled Cheese Burger. Which is a burger that uses 2 grilled cheese sandwiches for the buns. Not something I’d eat everyday, unless I want a heart attack, but it was good.

    These were also good (all in SoCal)
    Mac & Cheese Burger at Denny’s
    Philly Cheese Burger at Trimana (Los Angeles)
    Cheese burger with chilli and a fried egg at Fat Burger (Los Angeles)
    Caliente Burger at Original Tommy’s (Los Angeles)
    Roasted Pepper and Onion burger at Buffalo Fire Department (Torrance)

  • Mike Sharafi

    Hands down best burger is in Los Angeles at a little place called Apple Pan on Pico near Westwood Blvd. The Hickory Burger they serve is hands down the most delicious I have had. The quality of the ingredients is second to none, a never frozen fresh beef patty, crisp iceburg lettuce that crunches when you bite into it, fresh tomatoes, just the right amount of dill pickle, and their homemade hickory sauce, their slogan is “Quality Forever”. The best part is after you have the best burger you’ve ever put in your mouth you get to follow it with one of their home made pies, the recipies of some of them are nearly 100 years old. I made myself incredibly hungry writing this,I know where I’m going for lunch today.

  • A manly burger from Umami. Bacon chunks on a cheeseburger. Amazing!! Chunks not slices of bacon.

  • Dustin

    Holeman & Finch, Atlanta, GA – only 2 dozen made per night

  • Xm4n

    In Texas there is Whataburger I love their burgers bacon and cheese hits the spot every time

  • Dallas Witt

    Redmill Burger Seattle, WA. They have been featured on Man vs. Food and in many magazines. They don’t make any kind of crazy hamburgers but the quality of their burgers is the best I’ve had. Their meat tastes amazing and it brings a tear to my eye every time I walk in because they have an enormous pile of bacon stacked up on their grill and it’s the first thing I always see.

  • John-Mark Clawson

    Back Alley Burger in La Grange Illinois has a burger called the “Knead a big burger”. It is a 1/2 lb patty with pastrami, a fried egg, onions, horseradish mustard, lettuce and tomato. Sunday morning hangover cure guaranteed.

  • Raymond Rodgers

    One of the best burgers around is the Jumbo Frenzy Burger at Jaws Burgers in Farmington, Michigan.

  • Bub’s Burgers and Ice Cream in Carmel, Indiana. Burgers are perfectly seasoned, cooked to perfection. Juicy, mouthwatering burger nirvana. Get you some!

  • lye

    Snake River Farms Kobe beef, housemade challah bun (attached bakery), local tomato marmalade, roasted garlic aoli, housemade pickles, premium cheeses… oh and the option to add caramelized onion, farm eggs, house smoked bacon, mushrooms and jalapenos. #CitizensBandSF http://citizensbandsf.com/dinner_menu.html

  • JP Dy

    The 50/50 Burger from Slater’s 50/50 in Anaheim Hills, CA. The patty is half ground beef and half ground bacon.

  • where did you find the pictured burger? holy cow that looks good.

  • Ok, so this summer we were traveling back home (Fort Worth, TX) from Gulf Shores, AL and on our way we stopped for lunch in Jackson, MS. My wife and I were craving burgers so I got on Yelp and found a place not too far off the interstate for us to check out. The place was called Stamps Superburgers! When we headed in the neighborhood we were curious about the “sketchy” area we were in. We went ahead and headed into this shack with no AC and not really anywhere to sit except for a bar type seating area. So me, my wife and my 2.5 yr old waltzed right in there and quickly realized this place doesnt see many white folks! ;o) Which to me meant we were in the right place, and we were in store for a great burger! Boy was I right, the Superburger was the biggest, greasiest and TASTIEST burger I have ever eaten. The joint has a great family history and we were fortunate enough to talk to two of the brothers that owned the place while we were there. They were the nicest people and this is the BEST burger I have ever eaten. If you’re ever in Jackson, MS go there. I promise you wont be sorry!!!

  • Kevin Wong

    The buffalo burger at There in Atlanta.

  • Best burgers are made by my friends and I. Include most of your toppings in the burger leaving room for extra bacon. Add chunks of cheese inside the burger… taste everything in one bite. Yum.

    Kelly’s Revere Ma.. It’s AMAZING

  • The cheeseburger from Bocado in Atlanta

  • Marc Z.

    The best burger is in royal Oak, MI. The Red Coat Tavern.
    When I grew up I measured my growth in how many quarters of the burger I could eat (my father cut it up into quarters).Angus beef, simple toppings, but just awesome, plain and simple.

    • tehserver

      Don’t forget the zip sauce! I almost feel like I could just drink the zip sauce. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

  • Lunchbox Laboratory in Seattle has the best burgers, hands down. Of special note is the “Dork”, a Duck/Pork burger. It sounds a little odd, but it’s honestly the best thing ever.


  • wheineman

    The best burger is called the Churchill Burger, and it’s sold in Philadelphia at Pub and Kitchen! We did not become the fattest city in America eating healthy grass fed beef! NO! This is the king of burgers, and served alongside some of the best local craft brews money can buy! Why is it the best? I will let this image do the talking for me: http://www.uwishunu.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/pub-and-kitchen-churchill-burger-680uw.jpg

  • Nick


    Cross the river if you’re looking for the best burger in the Portland area. It’s in Vancouver at a restaurant called Lapellah. I get cravings for it on a weekly basis. Good stuff!

  • Spicy Guacamole Burger, Good Times Burgers, Denver, CO. It’s a guca burger, with bacon, messiness, and delicious awesomeness.

  • Umami Burger, LA, Calif – . Amazing specialty burgers! Served with a good selection of beers…

  • wheineman

    If you find yourself in Philadelphia, stop by Pub and Kitchen and get the Churchill Burger!
    Churchill Burger – par lafrieda custom dry-aged blend for perk, sauteed onions, fries.

  • Borgy321

    You have to try all three of these places if you make
    it to Minneapolis/St Paul, MN area: 5-8 Club, Matt’s, and The Nook.
    They all claim to be the originator of the Juicy Luicy.
    It is a Burger stuffed on the inside with what seems to be an endless
    amount of cheese. I have tried all 3 places and each version is unique. 5-8 and The Nook have various combinations
    of different stuffed burgers and I have tried them all. The best I ever had
    was a Chorizo PepperJack stuffed burger at The Nook (one of the
    “Special” burgers that they have once a month).

    The best burger I have had is from Big Jud’s in Boise, ID. Get the Jud special, it is a 1lb burger with all the toppings. Then you must add the pastrami to it, because anytime you use meat as a condiment for meat you hav a match made in heaven. Go there and get one now!

  • Chad Bursiek

    a Snappy burger from Snappy Stop in Rochester Minnesota. Everything is fresh and the burgers are delicious

  • Jpm7714

    best burger was the bacon cheeseburger at Worlds Best in Marlboro. It was the best becasue the bacon and the cheese were cooked into the burger itself and not just put on top

  • roswellraygun

    McDouble from McDonald’s everywhere. Its cheap and delicious.

  • roosterk506

    If you really wanna get deep in a cheeseburger the biggest and best has to be at Randy’s Restaurant in Trenton, GA. This big boy is 48oz’s or 3 pounds of the best Angus beef! You just gotta let them know your coming a day ahead of time so they can bake the bread for this thing. They make there own homemade buns for all of there hamburgers but you can imagine it takes a little longer for this guy. Of course you can get it anyway you want it but my favorite is cheese, onions, ketchup, and mustard.

  • My favorite burger is the Ranch House Burger from the Cheesecake Factory in Towson, Maryland. It was a huge burger but it was all about the toppings. Unfortunately they got rid of it from their menu about a year ago. It had three different types of cheese, bacon, a nice sautee of mushrooms and onions, and the best part… It had bits of steak on it! All topped with a garlic-ranch spread. I can’t tell you how sad I am that they got rid of it. 🙁

  • I don’t eat too many cheeseburgers in Texas but when I do I eat whataburger.

  • ArrowCool

    If for some reason you guys are ever near Medway, MA check out Mickey Cassidy’s. Nice Irish pub, and they have a great burger called the “Cheeseburger Eggy”. It’s a nice Angus beef burger with a fried egg on top.

  • PhillipCun

    I’ve tried many great burgers that claim the best in LA… Yeah sure Umami is famous and so is Father’s Office and even Westside Tavern’s burger are awesome.

    But there’s one that made me fell in love with burgers all over again. It opened my eyes to what a real burger should be. And that burger is the Habenaro burger from Mick’s Karma Bar in Irvine, CA. It is ran by a very talented couple who takes pride in their tiny shop. I’m sure many haven’t heard of it, but its honestly the best burger me and my friends have ever had.

  • GK

    Fuddruckers…Just make your own burger how you like it. sloppy or neat….

  • From Pawleys Front Porch in Columbia, SC the “Caw Caw Creek–housemade jalepeno pimento cheese, bread & butter pickled green tomato, jalapeno bacon, and grilled onions” and throw it all on a pretzel bread bun. Best burger I’ve had in a while.

  • I’m gonna have to say a belly buster. A little family shop sells it up in Pottersville NY, Two beef patties, onion rings, Cheese and a delicious sauce. Fries and a drink, 7 bucks. Woah mamma.

  • tehserver

    The Red Coat burger from Red Coat Tavern in Royal Oak, MI. The best part is the options available to you when creating you burger. Multiple types of buns, cheeses, sauces, and a ton of toppings. My favorite is a burger with swiss, lettuce, burnt onions, and zip sauce cooked medium rare. It’s so juicy and the zip sauce that they make there is amazing. I haven’t been able to replicate it at home. Thanks for making me write this. I’m now starving.

    Edit: Runner up would have to be the brisket burger from Lockhart’s in Royal Oak, MI. Ground Texas style bbq brisket, with onions, and their house made bbq sauce. It’s so good.

  • john huie

    don’t know if i’m too late, but here goes.

    I had this burger from Ocean, in Easton, PA, and it was great. It’s not a burger place, but more of a fancy trendy place. In any case, good food. The burger was GREAT. Meat perfect, topped with bacon, egg, and i think them thin crispy onion rings. DELICIOUS.

  • Gabriel Blanco

    Honestly.. no matter what Burger I’ve tried, I will always go back to non commercial burger joints. The charbroiled burgers can honestly NOT be beat.!

  • Double double animal style. I’ve never tasted a fresher and all around best tasting burger from any place like I have from In N Out. All the locations I’ve been to have the same uniformity when it comes to its taste but sense you asked for a town lets say Ontario, CA.

  • My usual favorite is Fuddrucker’s (pick any location) because of the build-your-own toppings aspect. However, the best burger I had was in this out-of-the-way bar near Indianapolis, IN and I wish I could remember the name of it (it’s been 7 years).

  • SchwannyT

    Best Burger place is the Pastrami Swiss burger from Burgers Express in Logan, Utah. I totally love their home cut fries and FRY SAUCE!!!

  • Rafy186

    Have Never had a burger better than I make. Maybe is cause I don’t go looking for spots to eat cheeseburgers. I love to make my Lava burgers with sauteed onions made from scratch with numerous spices. During labor weekend got a lot of praise on the taste.

  • Nick

    6 Dollar Burgers from Carls Jr!!!

  • Truffle burger from umami burger in los angeles. Cmon man…truffle burger! Truffle butter is awesome!

  • Jordan Dewey

    Personally my favorite burger is a Ragin Cajun Five Alarm Burger from any Red Robins (not on the menu 😉 )

  • Southrncomfortjm

    Five Guys bacon double cheeseburger with jalpenos, mushrooms, tomato, onions, extra bacon and ketchup mixed with tabasco, side of cajun fries and a sweet tea. Its an absolute mess to eat, and you really don’t want put it down once you pick it up since it just falls apart, but man is it good.

  • oakenstein

    The best burger

  • Bochness Monster Burger, The Lodge

  • The correct answer for the best burger would be the one you make for yourself

  • villian1998

    Ginny’s pub in Louisville KY, was the best burger I’ve ever had. It’s been years since I’ve had it but I still remember how juicy it was.

  • Mr ilheis

    I’m from Denver and the best burger in town is from H Burger Co. The original H Burger is delicious on so many levels.
    Hand-formed, freshly ground 100% Angus beef, Hatch chile, smoked Cheddar, sweet ‘n’ spicy bacon, Bibb lettuce, tomato, and onion, served with a red pepper-tomato jam. BOMB!!

  • David Simmons

    The waffle burger at scotty’s brew house in Lafayette, IN. Who wouldn’t want a burger with waffle fries on it smothered in cheese sauce?

  • Double bacon cheeseburger from Masons in Livonia, Michigan! Its the best burger cause they give you your choose of toppings and its 100% beef!

  • tjubb

    Foster’s Grille in VA is the best burger, hands down!

  • Burger Guy

    You can get a fabulous burger at Fleming’s in Tucson AZ. They use good quality meat; you can get it with bacon and cheese, and it is only $6 during happy hour. It also comes with a couple of great onion rings. The Tucson Fleming’s also serves free homemade chips in the bar during happy hour. I am heading there this afternoon.

  • My favorite would have to The jack burger from jacks in florence, sc. the burger is simple but taste great and it is also just a great place to get something to eat!

  • Saki

    One of the best burgers I have had would be at Louis’ Lunch in CT, which is known for being the beginning of the hamburger. Just don’t ask for ketchup!

  • hitsuji6

    The Bacon Deluxe from Red Mill Burgers in Seattle.

  • SteveG12543

    The best burger IMO would be a double cheese burger with A1 and mushrooms from “Five Guys Burgers and Fries” located on either Rotunda Drive or Peninsula Drive, both in Erie, PA (They do obviously have chains all over as well, but these two are the ones I went to). I know it sounds kinda basic/generic, but it was the single best burger of my life. It was so juicy and cooked to perfection. The A1 and mushrooms really complimented the burger making it so much better. Even the bun was amazing. Nice and soft (but not too soft) and tasted great. I somewhat consider myself to be a simplistic burger fan, where I prefer a burger with a few toppings instead of one with lettuce, tomato, coleslaw, a PS3 and the kitchen sink thrown onto it. Just give me my burger with a bit of cheese, some mushrooms and a dash of A1 and I’m set.

  • NexusMan

    When in New York City, you have to check out “brgr.” It’s a really cool burger spot with a great atmosphere and amazing burgers. All the burgers are made from 100% grass fed beef and are of the highest quality. They have a menu of interesting burgers, and you can also create your own. My favorite burger on the menu is called The Rainforest Burger, which is a beef patty with gruyere cheese, avocado, herb mayonaise, lettuce and tomato. The combination of the juicy beef, mixed with the gruyere and avocado and the herb mayo is the bomb! Also, while I’m personally not a fan of their fries or sweet potato fries, they do have an “onion hay” that is delicious and goes so well with this and the other burgers on their menu. They also have a good variety of beverages to wash this burger down with: sodas, beers, wine, and milkshakes…whatever floats your boat.

  • Kevin F

    Dark Horse in Findlay, OH. Their cheeseburger is the best when cooked just right. They also have a “monster burger” if you are tempted

  • MikeD675

    In N Out 2X2 in San Diego.

  • Jeremy Gentry

    Five Guys! definitely

  • ADRuiz

    I recommend a chain of burger places, as it’s less likely you’ll end up in the small town I live in to try ‘my’ favorite burger, and you’ll always have something to fall back on if you’re ever in the Cali/Nevada area. As other’s noted, I recommend In ‘N Out. Start with a Double Double – if you like your bun extra crispy – ask for the bun to be extra toasted – I enjoy the extra crunch. Get animal style – they cook the beef patty in mustard, dice onions, grill them to perfection and add extra “spread” (similar to Thousand Island). If you’re a fan of chili peppers, you can ask for chopped chili’s – they’ll dice up some sport peppers to add a slight kick. For your fries, if you like the animal style idea, you can get animal style fries – they add a slice of cheese, grilled onions, and spread and melt the cheese to a gooey perfection. For your drink, get a milkshake. All three of these items compliment each other perfectly and make for a great burger-eating experience.

  • Grass fed deluxe half pounder at Tremont 647 in Boston’s South End. It’s only on their brunch menu and you get a discount if you order it while wearing pajamas. Which is so, SO appropriate…

  • Stellas in Omaha, NE. Check it out! Even if I don’t win a Nexus you GOTTA try it!

  • Buffalo

    The Blue Shroom Burger from The Vortex Bar And Grill in Atlanta, Ga. The Blue Cheeeeeese Spread.!!! The only thing better than winning this Nexus 7

  • markstevenwoods

    My favorite burger is from Paradise Pup in Des Plaines, IL. The grilled onions and Merkt’s Cheddar cheese result in a 12 napkin burger that cannot be beat anywhere else in Chicago.

    The woodlot in Orofino, ID. Had done patties, and beer battered fries. Mmmm

  • Best burger ever…Here in Philly at PYT they have a burger of the week. Its always amazing, but this weeks was off the charts. It was the Ramen Noodle burger. Its exactly as good as it sounds. Check it out here:

  • Robert Silva

    The best burgers I’ve ever had are at Five Guys Burgers and Fries! They are big but not ridiculously big, they are juicy, and they taste better than any Burger I’ve ever had! Best of all they make the Burger pretty fast yet and they serve the BEST fries I’ve ever had. The fries are made with fresh potatoes daily and they even tell you where the potatoes are from. Small fries are enough to feed 3 people and Large is an insane amount inside a paper bag Haha.

    • Robert Silva

      Fast yet fresh*

  • The Burning Love burger from Red Robin. Love me some jalepenos!!!

  • Surprise, Arizona – Red Robin – Bacon CheeseBurger add the avacado. BEst Burger I have had.

  • Darren Tabor

    Jack Smack burger from So Long Saloon, Manhattan, KS (www.solongsaloon.com). This isn’t that unique compared to their other menu items, but everything is so well done in this restaurant, it’s leagues above any other burger I’ve had. Jack Daniels BBQ sauce, swiss cheese, lettuce, and tomato, sour cream. It’s also great to start off with the chipotle raspberry bean dip and a pineapple beer! If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend it! (or anything else on their menu)

  • Kevin Hebert

    The best burger is definitely from Lions Tap, Eden Prairie MN. And you can wash it down with one of their beers while you’re at it.

  • nwd1911

    Dickie Joes in Eugene, OR. It’s the meat, the toppings, the environment. Just great.

  • Best Burger ever is at Bobby’s Burger Palace in Philadelphia. It’s the Bobby Blue Burger with Blue Cheese, Bacon, Lettuce, & Tomato (even without the bacon it’s still good) Burger is juicy & the contrast of the blue cheese with the moist burger is like an eclipse in your mouth. Top it off with a Vanilla Caramel Bourbon Milkshake, oh it’s a done deal. I need to hatch a plan to get from NY to Philly NOW!!!!!!!

  • Dc

    I’m going to go with a double double animal style from In-n-out. A VERY close 2nd is a bacon burger from Five Guys.

  • In Ogden Ut, there is a place called Daddy D’s and they have an amazing Donut Bacon Hamburger! You get the glazed donut as your buns w/this thick sliced bacon! So so good and unhealthy!

  • klonoa

    Here in the Bay Area, I would have to say Nations has some of the best burgers in town.

  • Jack Daniels burger at Becks Bar and Grill in Cedar Falls, IA – Adds some caramel sweetness to the delicious, huge, messy burger!

  • Wasn’t even from a restaurant. A friend bought over some burgers from Cosco or something, nameless burgers and said we could have some, I was like, Cool, so I put one in the oven. Once it was done, just threw some cheese on it, [ear burgers plain] and bit into it and made this face. Friends were confused for a moment, and more confused when I hopped up and threw two more in the oven and I didn’t even finish the first one.

  • Dtrainer

    Best burger goes to Bull and Bones in Blacksburg VA. It is called the “Bull and Bones burger”. Has 1/4 lb burger topped with Pulled Pork, Coleslaw, Barbecue Sauce, an Onion Ring, and your favorite cheese. I personally call it the “Ron Swanson Special.” Check it out whenever you’re at a Virginia Tech game.

    • Dtrainer

      Forgot it has bacon on it too! Sooo good, but it needs a side of pepto with it.

  • Mine has to be the Serious (half pound burger) from Chee-Burger Chee-Burger. I always get mine with pickles pork roll raw mushrooms lettuce cheddar cheese onion rings and horseradish sauce

  • Matthew Mone

    I love the Oktoberfest Burger from Red Robin. I’m out here is Phoenix, but I am sure they are at all Red Robins, and boy are they good, with their Pretzel bun and beer mustard sauteed onions and black forest ham…. yummy

    • SecurityNick

      That is a good one.

  • SecurityNick

    The best burger I’ve ever had was (is) at Ike’s Korner Grille in Spartanburg, SC. It’s a shack, been around for years, they use fresh ground meat, they cut their own potatoes for french fries, and it’s the type of place that when you walk in and order a Miller Lite, they say, “Can or Bottle?” It’s the juiciest, most flavorful, freshest burger you’ll ever taste. They still hand-patty. You may have heard of another famous drive in in Spartanburg, SC, the Beacon. It’s good, but they honestly can’t touch Ike’s. https://plus.google.com/110117999614919579669/about?hl=en

  • One of my favorites is the Black Jack burger from Backyard Burger. Definitely not super fancy, but the spices they use really set it apart from most fast food burgers.

  • The best burger is from Swensons here in Akron, Oh. The Galley Boy has two special sauces topped off with a green olive. Much flavor…much love

  • Mike Yost

    Big Mac’s, the secret sauce really makes it one of the best. I know i’m lame.

  • Daniel

    Veggie burger with caramelized onions and swiss or a good cheddar melted over it, maybe on an English muffin with some hot pepper relish…

  • Jim Stroup

    Around the Tri-Cities Washington IMO the best burger is at Red Robin. Just love the Royal Red Burger and it’s even better with the Pretzel bun. Yum!

  • The Shackburger from the OG Shake Shack in Madison Square Park in New York, NY. Is it the smashed, custom Pat LaFrieda blend patty? Or maybe it’s the not-so-secret shack sauce. Or maybe it’s just the simple, toasted Martin’s Potato roll. Who knows? When all these glorious components come together to make the Shackburger, the angels sing.

    It also helps that you can wash it down with one of their delicious shakes.

    In rancho Cordova CA, this place called Famous Burger. They have a patty that is 7 inches wide! Massive burger. But it tastes good too.

  • Five Guys burgers in Newnan, Ga . I like my burger vanilla just like i love my android. plain jane with just ketchup double meat. Restaurants know how to leave out the extras if i dont want them why cant carriers and manufacturers do the same???

  • Killer Burger in Portland. NE 47th and Sandy. Best burgers ever. The peanut butter pickle bacon burger is awesome.

  • Todd Martineau

    The best burger I ever had was from the Red Robin in Webster, NY. They used to offer a Chili-cheeseburger and I loved it. Unfortunately they no longer offer it on their menu. I have special ordered it a few times but now they are saying they don’t carry the chili any more so they can’t make it. Sigh. Why was it the best ever? I guess I just liked all the flavors and the super hot cast iron plate they served it on kept everything hot.

  • Mike Yost

    I guess Big Mac’s are my favorite. Just really can’t get over how good they are.

    the best burger was in big stans in L.A., your standard 1&1/2 lb burger with an overeasy egg and a split spicy sausage on top that you needed a budy to help you finish(i ate a whole one it was sooo tasty),, to bad he passed away..(god bless), Now a solid burger combo at a good price is at Rick’s Burgers is Now Bobby’s Place in Pasadena.. Do not go to bun boy or whatever that new chin is called down the street YUCK.. and any one who says 5guys is tops should grow up and expand thier mind.. 🙂

  • The best cheese burger I’ve ever had is the Reuben Burger
    from The BGR Joint in Washington, DC. BGR
    has a rotating “Burger of the Month” and the Reuben burger is only offered in
    March to coincide with St. Paddy’s day.
    The burgers at BGR are already phenomenal but the Reuben Burger kicks
    that ish up to 11. Take a regular patty,
    cooked to your specifications, and add a slab of succulent, salty corned beef
    (and I mean a slab. This isn’t
    rinky-dink shaved deli meat. This is
    real slow cooked corned beef) a heap of tangy sauerkraut, creamy Russian
    dressing, and top it all off with melty Swiss cheese…..also there is a bun
    involved but really, who cares. If the
    burger is a giant party, the bun is designated driver. It’s there to keep the party together and
    make sure everyone gets home ok but doesn’t really bring much else to the
    equation. But all together this is a
    life changing burger. Bring some extra
    napkins and go to town.

    The Office Burger from Fathers Office. Two locations, Santa Monica and Los Angeles CA. This burger tastes so good I’m 87% sure its made of unicorn meat…. just sayin

  • My mom’s hamburgers are the best

  • Cheeseburger from Port of Call in New Orleans. Very delish!! Tastes even better after drinking your way down the French Quarter to get there.

  • best burger is @ BGR The Burger Joint in Bethesda, MD. It’s got juicy meats,fresh veggies, and the best secret sauce topping. It brings a whole new meaning to burgers.

  • Clifford Gadd

    My favorite hamburgers are my dad’s hamburgers. I don’t know how he makes them, but they are the juiciest and most flavorful hamburgers I have ever eaten.

  • The Juicy Lucy from Twin Cities, MN

    • Jucy Lucy at Matt’s is the best.

  • Any Burger from AJ Bombers. Located in Madison and Milwaukee, WI

  • villasin31

    Slater’s 50/50 in Anaheim Hills, CA. They make their burgers 50% ground beef and 50% bacon. Enough said. The Slater’s 50/50 burger (they have other burger options but this one is my favorite) has the 50/50 patty, bacon, cheese, chipotle mayo, avocado, and a sunny side up egg. Absolutely amazing. I go to school in New Orleans right now but had to fly back to Orange County last weekend and I HAD to go back there in the short amount of time I had in CA and have a Slater’s 50/50.

  • Glen E Ston

    Though I don’t partake in meat, I hear that Dick’s Kitchen in SW and SE Portland has THE best grass fed beef burgers around. They also have an amazing vegan BBQ Tempeh Burger (my favorite). They make everything in house there..

    Another place, “Off The Griddle”, also has AMAZING vegan cheeseburger, NOM.

    Portland has so many awesome options for everyone.

  • Mine has to be Wilson’s in Findlay, OH. It’s the place where Dave Thomas got his idea for Wendy’s. They’ve been around for over 75 years.

  • Darren Gilbreath

    “Milo’s” cheeseburger in Birmingham, AL. Best sauce in the world….

  • Jake

    The best burger I’ve had was from Tribecs Tavern in Raleigh, NC. It’s a breakfast burger with two 5 ounce patties, one beef, one sausage. It also has a friend egg and bacon. I would eat that for breakfast lunch and dinner everyday if I wouldn’t die of a heart attack.

  • MizterJroc

    My favorite burger is the bacon/cheese stuffed burger at Burgers n Beer in Willoughby, OH. It is great because it’s juicy, tender and stuffed with bacon and cheese. It’s served on a lightly toasted garlic bun that is soft but holds up to the amazing burger it supports. I’ll never forget the first time I experienced this burger.

  • RGiskard

    The Hellman Burger at Pete’s Cafe in downtown LA.

    It’s hard to say exactly what makes it the best burger that I’ve ever eaten, but perfectly melted fontina and smoked tomato aioli are a good start…

  • chris

    Texas chili in port chester NY. If you like spicy, you will love their beanless chili. The buger I get is called a california burger with chili. It’s awesome

  • My favorite burger is the Burger From Hell from the Coyote Bluff Cafe in Amarillo, TX. Burgers with heat at the only way to go. And this one just gets it right.

  • Booches burgers in Columbia Missouri. little slider burgers served on wax paper…simplistic and amazing.

  • therealjbriggs

    Fork in good ol Boise, ID has the most delicious cheeseburger I have ever had the pleasure of biting into. Ubelievably simple, but juicy and all local.

  • MattyB65

    On the grill at my place in Franklin, MA. It’s the best because I usually have an unlimited amount of beer/booze to go with it. Stop by sometime!

  • 007e

    Definitely Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien in NYC, 119 West 56th Street.
    When I’m back home (CA) I can’t go wrong with in n out followed by Five Guys.

    • 007e

      Oh yea, Why was it the best? It just was. Need I say more? Amazing burgers at the Burger Joint.

  • A Five Guys bacon burger. Anywhere.

  • K1cks

    Any burger with jalapeños, bacon, and swiss rank highly for me 🙂

  • chris

    Favorite would be the bacon double cheeseburger I get at the cafeteria at work here in Waterford, CT. Why?
    Bacon- check
    Cheese- check
    Burger- check

  • JMGNole

    Corner Pocket, Tallahassee. Angus Beef, Caramelized onions and Bleu Cheese, lettuce and tomato. Homemade potato chips. Very cold beer.

  • In San Diego, you can find a hole in the wall restaurant by the name of Pete Mayo’s Waffle Burger. The patty is amazing, throw some bacon and pepper jack cheese on that and your taste buds will explode.

    As far as food chains go I enjoy In N out and 5 Guys. But nothing beats Fosters Freeze in the summer; ice cream and burgers in one spot, insane.

  • zachos

    Best burger: Any of Stella’s stuffed burgers (I prefer the Hippy Stuffed Black Bean and Lentil Burger – but probably the Queso Jalapeno (Hot Stuffed Burger) for the carnivores out there From: Stella’s Lounge, Grand Rapids Why: Almost as much about the place as the burger, but the burger was called “Best Burger in America” by GQ editor Michael Hainey. The place itself is a little slice of heaven – a Whiskey bar with over 200 whiskeys, great local craft beer (Founders, etc), 80’s video game room, vegan & vegetarian & carnivore options… etc. Amazing place that anyone could feel at home in. http://www.stellasgr.com

  • I’m a big fan of the Buffalo Burger at Natty Greene’s in Raleigh. “One-half pound of grilled bison topped with Swiss cheese, sautéed mushrooms & onions and horseradish mayo.” I generally get it without the mushrooms though. It’s the only bison burger i’ve ever had and it’s awesome.

  • LordStickMax

    i eat low carb. so i have a lot of cheese burgers. i like order basically the same thing. double patty, bacon, american cheese, blue cheese, fried onions, mushrooms, onion straws(i know there are carbs) and ofcourse no bun. delicious. i go to red robin most of the time but my favorite place to get this is a local mom and pop, Nina’s 2, in bucks county, PA. its simply the best burger one can get. every flavor mixes and blends into each magic bite. i know im not a word smith here.

  • I’m going to say my favorite cheeseburger is the Damn Straight burger at Fathead’s in North Olmsted, OH (just outside Cleveland). The burger is great and they add a little thousand islands dressing to push it over the top!

    I have to second Bryce’s comment about Swenson’s Galley Boy. The secret sauce is something like mayo and barbecue sauce and it’s also an amazing burger!

  • Steve Martucci

    I always have a great experience at TGI Fridays. The Jack Daniels burger is always a favorite of mine.

  • BTLS

    Debbie Gate’s All American BBQ, Burgers, Fries & Funnel Cakes – Pittsburgh… They infuse their Giant burgers with TONS of cheese… it oozes out from everywhere and is super messy but it’s a fantastically cheesy experience!

  • Brian Correll

    Favorite Burger. “The Works Burger” at a restaurant called “Seafood Gourmet”. This restaurant is located on the little island of Wester Samoa. Samoa is closest to New Zealand but about a 1,000 miles off the coast near the equator. Not that anyone here will probably visit the island but, the burger is amazing. It has a buttered sesame seed bun with thick fresh burger meat. It has egg, pinapple, bacon, two slices of cheese, lettuce, and thousand island dressing. It’s incredible.

  • ROBV_100

    Gotta say 5 Guys too if I am out but I rather make a turkey burger with pepper jack cheese INSIDE the patty at home! My wife and kids love it and it is so much better than take out.

  • Curtis

    Cary, NC – Lucky32 is a classy restaurant that has a seasonal (summer) Bleu Ribbon Burger. Don’t miss it. Perfectly grilled, thick patty with a slightly toasted fluffy bun. They mix bleu cheese and their bleu ribbon sauce to make the best burger I have ever tasted. If you want something fast ‘Cook Out’ is a little outdoor/drive thru type place that makes a bacon cheeseburger that tastes like it came off your own grill every time.

    If you’re here you might as well try both places!

    PS – I’ll pay to have it upgraded to a 16GB model.

  • Well I doubt you’ll ever end up in my town. If you do I guess id have to make you one of my famous grillburgers.

  • Edgar Garcia

    The best cheeseburger is at Apollo’s Burgers in Victorville, CA. They ground their beef daily which makes a world of difference. They have a “Manimal” which uses grilled cheese as buns, haven’t tried it yet.

  • zmpinqc

    The Jucy Lucy from Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis, MN. Two thin patties fused together with molten cheese in the middle. Most amazing thing you will ever eat. (Warning: each Jucy Lucy consumed may take 3-5 years off lifespan)

  • Nick

    A Meers burger from the Meer’s Store and Restaurant in Meers, OK. It’s the best because it’s made with Buffalo meat and the way they cook it makes it taste a lot better than a regular cheeseburger.

  • Alex Kranz

    4 patty Bacon cheeseburger from Five guys. Any of them in the DC area.

  • etaprime

    meat burger

  • Gobaku

    The best burger i had was from Montreal, at burger Bar Crescent.
    Caramelized onions, fried eggs, bacon truffle oil and cheddar cheese.
    The burger even won montreal’s burger week.

  • The best burger… Original Tommy’s… in LA on Beverly and Rampart

  • A giant burger from helvitia restraint near Portland mmmm the sauce they use is amazing or little big burger in downtown Portland with truffle oil fries…. I’ll be right back

  • Keith B

    Skaters 50-50 burger, half ground beef, half ground bacon!
    Worth the drive to Aneheim?

    • Keith Batchelor B.

      Oops, that’s Slaters 50-50

  • Holy crap that burger looks delicious.

  • fallenshell

    So to be fair, i’m sure it was the environment as much as it was the burger. But Guys Burger bar on the last cruise i was on was pretty epic. Meat was cooked really well and very moist, melty cheese, jalepenos and a big ol onion ring stacked on top! Server with perfect awesome crispy fries. That on the deck of a ship full of women in bikinis in the middle of the caribbean total WIN.

  • Homemade patty from ground sirloin, brisket, and pork fat. Cooked on a wood fire grill, topped with smoked paprika aged white cheddar and grilled white onions. On a homemade sponge bread bun. This burger is at my place GrindHouse.

  • Jason

    I make a mighty fine burger at home on the grill, but I wish that I was back in New Mexico so that I could get a green chile cheeseburger, with real Hatch green chile, from Blake’s Lotaburger. There are about two dozen Blake’s, and they are all in NM. Farley’s in Roswell, Ruidoso, and Las Cruces also gets a nod from me. Did I mention that I wish I was back in New Mexico?

  • JR

    Just had this burger called the ‘Horn Royal’ from a small restaurant in Bethlehem, pa called ‘Horns’. Bacon, blue cheese crumbles, sauteed onions, and a big ol’ pile of beef. Delicious!

  • Timothy McGovern

    Bobs bacon burgers 😛

  • Artistan

    Smash Burger in Fargo, ND – Jalapeno Baja Burger.

  • akaAlfie

    Normal Price – Boston Burger Company’s The Kitchen Sink: Fried egg, ham, bacon, grilled onions, peppers and mushrooms smothered in american, cheddar and provolone with BBC sauce
    A little on the pricier side – Cragie on Main Burger (They only make 20 a night): equal parts of short rib, flap meat, and brisket, beef fat, and a 2:1 combination of suet and marrow

  • Jack

    Place in Richfield, OH (near Cleveland) called Whitey’s Booze-N-Burgers…best around! One of those places you couldn’t beat if you tried…I’ve been to San Diego once as well, and Hodad’s was a close second.

  • B.P.

    Dick’s Drive In in Seattle. A no frills cheeseburger that is great late at night.

  • Griffs in Irving,Texas Nothing extravagant but its a taste of childhood

  • My current go-to favorite burger is the Five Guys cheeseburger, with grilled onions, grilled mushrooms and steak sauce. You didn’t ask, but you gotta get the cajun/Old-Bay seasoned fries.

  • yes

  • The best cheeseburger ever is probably “the Ringo” at a local pub called Abbey Road Bar and Grill. Provolone, mushrooms, and the biggest slab of ground beef you can find. All on a huge sourdough bun. Puts me in a food coma every time.

  • Jodeci888

    My favorite burger is a turkey burger with avocado and fried onion strips and garlic mayo. The combo of flavors are great…. but i recommend extra garlic mayo. I get it from Ruby Tuesday s in NY.

  • mplacido9

    Cookes of Dublin at Downtown Disney in Orlando, FL. Best fried burger ever! Their chips were pretty awesome too. Plus they have this dalkey mustard that is amazing on everything.

  • A burger with vermont Chedder, slick sliced bacon, and a tangy BBQ sauce. mmmmmmm.

  • Terry Michael

    Kincaid’s Burgers in west Fort Worth Texas, on Camp Bowie Blvd near I-30.

  • Fuddruckers: Bacon Cheddar: Smokehouse bacon and cheddar cheese over a juciy burger grilled to order. Top that off with some steakhouse fries and a chocolate shake and you have my heart!

  • I was out of town, and I remember being desperate for just a simple burger. I ended up going to Red Robin, Madison, WI, yes, lame… a chain. But they had a special burger that I couldn’t resist trying. It was called a Paisan burger… it had a patty covered in pepperoni, pizza sauce, and topped with 3 Mozzerella sticks. Delicious. Blending my love for pizza and burgers.

  • My favorite was a grilled onion burger from a place in Puyallup, WA, called Earthquakes. It was nice and juicy, dripping with grilled onions, about the size of a dinner plate… Just amazing. It’s probably been 17-18 years since I’ve been up there to have one. Not sure if they exist anymore 🙁 But they were the best!

  • I thoroughly enjoy the Grilled Cheese Cheeseburger from DT Kirby’s in Lafayette, IN. It is a grilled cheese sandwich, with a burger on top, and another grilled cheese sandwich on top. Needless to say you get put in a coma hopefully I didn’t miss anything Don

  • AnotherAndroidKid

    Burgers Shakes and Fries, Greenwich CT (coming by train use the port chester ny stop)

    This is one of my all time favorites. It is extremely well prepared (let them cook it properly instead of how you may think you want it) and do not gob it up with unneeded topping. Sauteed onions at most. Also, order the single to start. If you want more after that, they’ll gladly make it.

    Truly a rare find in my book.

  • Nlsme

    Whiskey River BBQ burger, add double bacon from Red Robin. Yummmmm!!! Or, my handmade Angus on the back patio.

  • My wife makes an excellent Bacon Buffalo Blue Cheeseburger in Elkton MD. It’s the best!

  • Billy

    Has to be the Awful Awful Burger at Rosie’s Cafe in the dark seedy back part of the Nugget Casino in Reno, Nevada.

  • 5 guys they make them like i make a cheeseburger

  • shdowman

    Not sure this is part of the rules, but quite frankly, I think MY burger is the best burger.

    You take super lean ground beef, mix in: minced garlic, onion powder, garlic powder, bread crumbs, seasoning salt, shredded pepper jack cheese and bbq sauce. (don’t try this at home kids, I’m a professional). When making patties, I create a “pocket” of shredded pepper jack in the middle of burger.

    Top it off with melted pepper jack slices, fried onion strings and bbq sauce.

    YUM. 🙂

  • Bubs big ugly. In Carmel, Indiana. Its a 1lbs burger after cooking. Best burgers ever, plus they are one the walking trail, so you can walk it off when you have finished.

  • John

    Mac burger in Macdonalds, Malaysia.

    Do you like Five Guys? Do you like putting Five Guys in your mouth? 0.o

  • mjroberts22

    There is a place called George and Louies in Thomasville, GA that makes awesome burgers.

  • Moonie’s Burger House Western Burger with Onion Rings. Best burger I’ve had, largely due to the sweet buns they make there… I might have to stop there for lunch today. Austin, TX.

    Nexus please!?

  • it has to be a burger from Blue Dot in Pensacola, FL. the burger tastes delicious, better than most, but the experience is what puts it over the top.

    First of all, if you can find the restaurant, you’ve won half the battle. It shows up on google maps, but finding it in person is a different story. there are no markings, no signs, no advertisements. It’s in a small non-descript building in the shady area of town (my wife stayed in the car while I went to get the burgers!). The only revealing item is a carpet with a big blue dot in the middle inside the door.
    once you’re inside, there are no menus, no prices, and there’s probably no one at the counter. yell for someone and they come out. ask them what is on the menu and they’ll say “burgers or ribs”. ask for a burger and they’ll disappear in the back for a few minutes and come back with a brown paper bag, with the burger inside. you won’t regret it.

  • xXAaronSXx

    Hands down, the A-1 Peppercorn burger from Red Robin. If you don’t believe me, try it, you will see the light.

  • The Apple Pan Hickory Burger in West L.A., CA is the best burger. It is juicy and messy, the way a good burger should be. My grandmother used to take me there all the time growing up, the place is exactly he same now as it was 20 years ago.

  • Keoni

    The best burger I’ve ever had is a quad with 4 patties and lettuce and tomato mushroom bun with a lil bit of butter made from home here at WA

  • Heygirl38

    Double double from In-n-Out in California. hungry just thinking about it

  • Best burger for me is probably at Top Notch in Austin, TX. They char-grill the burgers, and have a great secret onion ring batter recipe. And it was the drive-in burger joint from Dazed and Confused!

  • Michael Fox

    If you’re ever in Indiana, swing by Marvin’s in Greencastle. They might be a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant but they make a garlic cheeseburger the likes of which I’ve never seen before. If you get one, you’ll immediately be craving for a second one.

  • Gregg

    I’m late to this, but the best burger is the Peanut Butter burger at Yo Momma’s in New Orleans. It’s simply amazing. BIG burger, even bigger on Flavor, and cooked to perfection.

  • Nuance

    The best burger I’ve had is from Redrock Saloon in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They ground bacon into the beef, saute the beef in a “secret sauce” and put it on a special butter toasted bun with all the goodies. Man Vs. Food actually visited the restaurant last year. This burger is my favorite because of the quality of beef, the tenderness and the flavor.

  • Scott Hoelle

    The best would have to be the Pepperjack Bacon Stack Burger at Champps in West Chester OH. Two patties topped with pepperjack cheese and applewood- smoked bacon. I eat pretty healthy and I have to get this burger every time we go into Champps. The best part is that it comes with waffle fries covered in a white queso.

  • Thomas Svenson

    5lbs of burger, 20pcs of bacon, 20pcs of american cheese, 5lbs of fries, 1 deli pickle, and a fountain soda.


  • Big jack daddy burger from buffalo wild wings. Onion rings, pulled pork and bbq sauce all on top of a burger is the slam.one of my favorite burgers of all time

  • Five Guys Little Bacon Cheeseburger. All the way, hold the ketchup, with green peppers and jalapenos. Pure bliss in a foil wrap.

  • bionicwaffle

    In Kingston, Ontario, Canada you can get an amazing burger at the Kingston Brewing Company! They have a great patio too that feels more outdoors than you would expect for being in the middle of a city.

  • Ljedik

    Best burger I’ve ever had was at Dinosaur BBQ Burger in Syracuse NY! Damn that was delicious!

  • Dairy O in Orangeburg, SC for their Curley Burgers (Pimento Cheeseburger) add bacon

    In and Out here in the Silicon Valley. Not much of a burger eater, but the first time I had a In-and-Out burger was pretty awesome.

  • bobukcat

    Terry’s Turf Club in Cincinnati. I prefer mine with bacon, american, and grilled onions. If I splurge I add the mushroom burgundy wine sauce!!

  • Greg Morgan

    Wendys Baconator. Nothing special but very tasty.

  • docoorah

    ChicagoBlu’s BluBurger. Made in Mokena, IL, this burger is served on a pretzel bun and made with blue cheese crumbles in the juicy meat. Why is this my favorite? My sister worked her ass off to get her culinary degree and become a chef. She worked at this restaurant and optimized this burger, causing it to become a local favorite and win local awards.

    Proud of her and love this burger.

  • Corey Hass

    If you for some strange reason find yourself in Tucson, Arizona…make your way to 4th Ave to Lindy’s. Get the “Mac ‘n Cheese Burger” think gourmet Kraft mac n cheese on top of some of the best free range beef you will have. Seeing that Tucson is beginning to rival Portland for hipness, you should fit right in.

  • Jaws burgers in Farmington Hills, MI. You got a fish tank with a baby shark, the movie Jaws playing, and a juicy burger that you can’t even buy with a credit card. One of the best burgers I ever had

  • rtdroid72

    The best burger in my parts is the Signature Burger at Louis’ Lunch in New Haven, CT. It’s just a fantastic burger with grilled onions, tomato, their burger sauce, on toasted bread instead of the traditional burger bun. Amazing!

  • john dechert

    Fudruckers in Bridgewater NJ, burgers cooked to order on the griddle and the fat ratio gives you the perfect amount of flavor and tenderness. Make it a fried egg, ham and bacon on the burger and consider yourself in burger heaven…

  • Cheeseburger from 5 Guys in Dedham MA. Juicy and Tasty. Fries are the best too.

  • deceptiveat70

    Triple Coronary Bypass Burger from the Vortex in Atlanta….
    In their words: Two half-pound patties stacked inside 3 grilled cheese sandwiches, topped with fried eggs, 8 slices of american cheese, 10 slices of bacon and plenty of mayo on the side.
    All of that is served on op ofa huge bowl of tots and fries…drenched in white cheddar cheese.

  • Best burger I have had is in live oak floor at brown lantern the all American its cook perfectly every time has all you could want on a burger.

  • Lunchbox Laboratory in Downtown Seattle, WA. The chef there used to be a 5 star chef in incredibly expensive restaurants, but quit to open a small burger place. It became so popular, they moved to a larger building.

  • Local place here in Savannah GA called Green Truck. Everything is organic and bought local… from the beef to the veggies. Some are even home grown! Best burger is called the “Trailer Park”. Two massive patties, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles w/ Paminto Cheese on a homemade bun… Devine!!! :]

  • Best burger I have ever eaten is from a place that just closed BrgrShack in Arlington VA. They had their own take on a Juicy Lucy which was cheddar cheese in between two patties of grass fed ground beef. Topped with bacon and some lettuce. Oh so good! It closed because the lack of lunch crowd in that area.

  • Shawn Kim

    Standing Room in Torrance, CA. THE BEST BURGERS HANDS DOWN. Their fusion burgers are what accounts for 90% of my body fat content.
    Yup, that just happened.

  • Honestly its going to sound weird but a double bacon cheese burger from my friend Molly in the Auburn, AL mall at Wings & Deli! I know it sounds weird to say that a mall has good food but its awesome!

  • Jon1029

    Bobbyq’s in cookeville tn. Has the best burger in these parts. They are more known for barbecued pulled pork and ribs, but just one bite of a burger from Bobbyq’s will ruin your tastebuds for fastfood burgers (your tastebuds wont accept anything less than a Bobbyq’s burger again!) … You’ll never feel the same about burgers again!

  • The Garlic Burger from the San Diego Ale house. It has a garlic aoli with freshly chopped garlic, lettuce, and tomato.
    Most places usually go mild when they say they have a garlic burger…but man my breath was bad even after brushing my teeth and using mouth wash 5 times!

  • Ken

    The best burger i have ever had came off my own grill!!!

  • Anakin Solo

    The best burger I have ever had was the Ooey Gooey Bacon cheeseburger that TGIFridays used to sell. Fried provolone on a Bacon Cheeseburger. Dang, now I am hungry.

  • Best cheeseburger would be a royale with cheesefrom france. Nothing better at all

  • Bennette

    Father’s office in Santa Monica has the B E S T burgers, and a great selection of beers to go with. The burgers have a special seasoning and are served with caramelized onions and a special mayo/spread – there are no condiments offered at this place to mod your burger and none is needed. Did I mention the amazing draft beer selection? Oh yes… awesome. Fathers Office has 2 locations – Culver City and Santa Monica. If you have had one – have one today!

  • kevintufts

    The best burgers come from my grill.

  • napes22

    Minetta Tavern Black Label Burger in NYC. It’s pricey at $27 per burger, but it’s worth it. h. The burger is made from a combination of dry aged beef (some from Minetta’s pricier steak options) and practically melts in your mouth. I treat myself to it once a year, and enter burger bliss.

    Some details about the burger:

  • My favorite burger is a 5 Guys Bacon Cheeseburger w/ onions, mustard and tomato. They make their burgers perfect and the taste is spectacular. They are in Schererville, IN

  • Wendy’s classic single cheeseburger with bacon. Just right

  • J.B.

    Green chile cheeseburger from The Buckhorn in San Antonio, NM. You just have to try one.

  • Wendy’s Baconator, always comes with the quality

  • My favorite burger is done by my local sports bar, the 4th Quarter Bar & Grill. It’s a half pound burger cooked to perfection with whatever toppings you want. I’ve tried other places, but I can’t beat a 4th Quarter burger.

  • Any burger I make in my own kitchen is my favorite…medium-rare with bleu cheese crumbles worked into the patty is out of this world.

  • Best Burger is in Lincoln Nebraska. The all american burger at Randy’s Grill and Chill. Big patty topped with sliced ham and a fried egg. Add a pitcher of brew and I’m a happy man.

  • *droidz*

    Come on up to Seattle with a bottle of Ninkasi’s Maiden the Shade and I’ll buy you some Dick’s burgers for lunch. Can you customize it? Nope. Are there vegetarian alternatives? Nope. Is it just a classic, truly traditional fast food burger place, burger there is? Oh hell yeah. I’m sure you’ve had it before but I have had In-n-Out and they get points for making a grilled cheese for Veggies but man oh man, 5 guys, In-N-Out, nope, don’t hold a candle to a Dick’s burger.

  • If you ever get out to the Santa Clarita area in So Cal you have to try The Habit. Best burgers in town. Big, juicy with grilled onions and anything else you want to add to it. The burgers are large so you won’t leave hungry.

  • Five Guys is the best burger I get on a regular basis in the Washington, DC area. Fresh, juicy, variety of topping, and the fries are great, too. Just don’t get the large fries unless you’re feeding a family.

  • Alex Rieck

    My favorite is the Double Yoi (used to be called the Oy Vey) from BRGR in Pittsburgh

    It has pastrami, Swiss cheese, fried egg, cole slaw, and thousand island dressing.
    And here’s their burger description.
    “Our beef is a handcrafted blend of sirloin, chuck, rib eye, and strip specially ground for us daily and delivered from Curtze Meats in Erie”

  • Joe Loccisano

    Me please

  • Fresh

    The best burger in the Washington D.C. metro area has to be a tie between Ray’s Hell Burger (Arlington) and Good Stuff Eatery (D.C.)
    Good Stuff is owned by Spike Mendlesohn from “Top Chef” (if you are a food network fan) and it isnt just about the burger, they have awesome fries and shakes – the shakes are ridiculous!
    Ray’s Hell Burger is a classic in Arlingoton, I don’t know what is in the beef, but its delcious. Its so good The Preseident and VP made a stop here last year.

  • emgo

    Shackburger from Shake Shack in NY. Just a good clean simple burger that gets every detail right (fresh beef, their own proprietary blend from a famous butcher in nyc, well seasoned and seared, martin’s potato roll).

  • Jtay23

    My favorite burger is from a Microbewery in Corvallis Oregon called Flat Tail. Its called the beaver damn and has 1/2 lb patty 1/4 of peppered turkey 4 pieces of peppered bacon carmalized onions, sauteed mushrooms cheddar cheese, lettuce and tamatoe. And instead of fries i get fried pickels! now thats good eatin!!

  • There’s a local roadside stop called “Marsh’s Hollow” which serves a Hubcap burger. This thing is HUGE gotta be at least 6″ across at least. Then you pick whatever you want on it. I personally like some Bacon, Swiss, Mushrooms and A1 Sauce… hold any of that vegetation crap, this is a carnivore special.

    In Billings Montana, the Burger Dive. The garlic burger is amazing. It’s huge, has the perfect blend of garlic mixed into the meat, topped with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and any other toppings you choose. Burgers are all freshly made and it’s like heaven in a bun. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

  • Ed G

    The best burger I ever ate was the 3-pound pub challenge burger at Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, PA. I did not finish it (I ate about half), but the taste of it was incredible. They have giant burgers up to 15 pounds. I have since retired to their standard burgers, which are also amazing.

  • The best cheeseburger I’ve ever had was from O’Connell’s Pub in St. Louis, MO. They consistently win Best Burger awards from the local paper.

  • the best burger ive had is the juicy lucy in South Minneapolis, Minnesota at Matts bar. the burger with the cheese melted inside the meat. it is truly amazing.

  • tattoopunk

    Krekel’s Custard and Hamburgers in Decautur, IL is awesome! I know it sounds boring, but the double cheeseburger is amazing!

  • The best hamburger has to be the one I tried in Nicaragua, fresh meat , never frozen!
    It does make a big difference!

  • TuanP

    If your around the mind west area, like Omaha NE. Come devour the Luther burger at Papa Chris! The burger is stacked in this order; doughnut, cheese, beacon, beef, cheese, then doughnut. Sounds awful, but taste WONDERFUL! Just think back to the very moment you fell in love with your OG Android phone, it’s that in your mouth! aggghhhh!

    The best burger I had was homemade in Dallas, Texas . It was especially good with hot sauce, I ended up eating three of them.

  • Chris Phillips

    The Walburger from Tom Whals in Avon NY. On a seaded Kaiser bun made from fresh ground beef. Never frozen. With swiss cheese and string lettuce. Topped with their signature Whal sauce made of mustard mayo dill relish black pepper and salt. All melty dripping with grease and sauce. Amazing! I worked there as a kid and made these burgers. Still love them over all the rest.

  • scruffykid

    Bacon cheeseburger from Hokie House in Blacksburg, VA. Why? Because the place has Hokie in its name!

  • Mike Dub

    Ollies in Goffstown NH. The Ollies burger is the best burger evar! Hand packed, great meat, not overly seasoned. I could eat 3 of em at a time!

  • This. Is my favorite cheeseburger. It’s called the Thurmanator, and it’s available at Thurman’s in Columbus, OH.

    • flosserelli

      Holy crap. Now I’m hungry…

  • Scott Fried

    The best cheeseburger in the world is a Squeezeburger from a little place in Sacramento CA, called the Squeeze Inn. Obviously what seperates a cheeseburger from a plain old hamburger is the cheese. Well this sucker has a giant cheese skirt! It puts the cheese in cheeseburger.
    Unfortunatly I live half way across the country, so I only had one once, but nothing since has ever compared. Someday I will get back there again to have one! Seriously, put this one on your bucket list!

  • Radgatt

    This may sound lame but my favorite burger is Burger King’s double cheese burger. Not sure what it is about that burger but it always manages to hit the spot.

  • So Long Saloon. Manhattan, KS. Aggieville. It is called the ‘Resist Temptation’. Bacon, fried egg, Melted cheese and mayo. Pure deliciousness. You will be glad you couldn’t resist.

  • G_Romero

    Kings Bar in Minneapolis MN. Nothing even comes close. Especially if you order it with a fried egg!

  • AntiJeff

    It’s et and spicy burger / candied jalapenos, fried ratatouille, wild arugula : Phoenix AZ The Grind. It’s all in the name sweet and spicy this burger is awesome

  • The best burger I have ever had was a burger of the month from “The Nook” in St Paul.
    Each month they have a burger of the month that is a little different than a “normal” burger but always delicious.
    One month the burger was “The Farmer’s Daughter” a cheeseburger topped with bacon and chicken strips!

  • ToddLower

    A.W. Shucks in Norfolk, VA has a delicious burger called the Chesapeake Bay Burger. It’s 2/3 lb patty cooked to order with a big lump of juicy local crab meat on top. Served with some of the best fries in the area (or other delicious sides, but you’re going to want to try the fries).

    OLive burger from the wheel inn, st johns mi.

  • GoNoles

    The Ultimate Stuffed Tony burger from the Hungry Owl in Mobile, AL. Best hands down.

  • Alan Girard

    The best burger has to be a burger from Thurmans in Columbus, Ohio. All of their burgers are delicious but if you are going to only be there once you might as well try the Thurmanator. The Thurmanator has two 12 ounce patties and toppings galore. The toppings include mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickle, banana peppers, bacon, cheddar, sautéed mushrooms & onions, ham, mozzarella & American cheese. The burgers are mouth watering good.

  • Five Guys Burgers and Fries started in Northern Virginia
    .. branching out across the Northeast now

  • Jim Webber

    Monticristo Burger from Hot Rods in Maryville, TN. Yes the bun is two glazed donuts.

  • Jimmy Garcia

    local joint in apple valley ca, Douglas Burgers. Hand formed patties on freshly baked buns!

  • Aran Miller

    Monterey CA. Place called Island burgers (maybe a chain not sure), but they have GREAT vege burgers. The Hawaiian burger seems crazy, but it’s magnificent.

  • TestyTech

    Jake Morans in Libertyville, IL just down from the Motorola Mobility headquarters. It’s a dive bar that’s in a converted house but has amazing classic cheeseburgers on a toasted bun loaded with greasy grilled onions. Once you pick it up you can’t put it down till it’s gone since it’s so sloppy. The waitress/cook/bartenders are same ones for last decade or so. MMMM good!

  • The best cheeseburger, I’ve eaten, believe it or not, was at Stanley’s Blackhawk Bar at O’Hare Airport. I know, weird. But it was awesome!

  • vonny571

    So many favorites (oxymoron, I know). I’m a fan of many that have already been mentioned, but one place I haven’t seen mentioned yet is Quaker Steak and Lube. I’ve been to the location in Council Bluffs, IA and they have some great burgers. The Lubebuger and the Arizona El Camino top the list for me.

  • RP2

    My favorite burger is the whole hog from a local restaurant called Crave. It’s a half pound hunk of Angus with chorizo, bacon, ham, and cheddar. Best effing burger ever.

  • Zinburger in Clifton, NJ. I Their Zinburgers are no-nonsense, down-to-earth. Plus the fries are excellent.

  • I love Steak & Shake Burgers with the crispy onions on top. MMMmmm …so greasy and so good!

  • Adam Lauver

    Krazy Jim’s Blimpy Burger “Quint” in Ann Arbor, MI. Because the first thing I want a burger joint to ask me when I walk in the door is, “how many patties?”

  • brian

    Grovers in Amherst, NY has the best burgers. There big, there juicy, and the bun is hot and toasty! Add the usual bacon, ranch, mayo, hot sauce, and some slime and you are staring at the best and most tasteful burger ever! Slime is what we call chili sauce BTW

  • Adam Call

    So Long Saloon. Manhattan, KS. Aggieville. It is called the ‘Resist Temptation’. Bacon, fried egg, Melted cheese and mayo. Pure deliciousness. You will be glad you couldn’t resist.

    Big Jud’s in Archer, IDAHO Makes some of the tastiest burgers you will ever sink your teeth into. My Personal Fave is the Double Reuben Burger. 1/2 pound burger topped with corned beef, saur kraut, and gooey swiss cheese on a toasted homemade butter bun

  • Stef

    Bend Or. – Deschutes Brewery – the Garlic Burger with Bacon (how can that be wrong?)

  • letinsh

    If you’re ever in Austin, the best burger is Mighty Fine’s “Beast Burger,” but you gotta order if off the locals’ menu 😉 2 half-pound patties made of the best beef you’ll taste, 4 slices of cheese, grilled onions, and the usual fixin’s. I get mine ‘yeller and white’. You can add bacon and jalapenos if you want.

  • Arie Hoogendoorn

    5 Guys in Hillsborough, NJ well 5 Guys anywhere that is just the most accessible one!

  • j-wood

    My favorite burger has to be the “fatty melt” from a restaurant called Crave Real Burgers in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

    The burger goes like this. Grilled cheese sandwich, bacon, spicy ketchup, cheese, 1/2 LB angus beef burger, grilled cheese sandwich.

    Yes, you read that right. This burger has two grilled cheese sandwiches as the bun instead of a regular bun. This burger is the best because it’s a cheese explosion and it tastes so amazing. Can I win for this epic burger entry?

  • If you want a heart attack, the Chili’s Jalapenos Smokehouse Bacon Burger is the way to go.

  • Eric Franca

    Any burger from Ray’s Hellburger.

  • Cory Larson

    The Sobelman Burger from Sobelman’s in Milwaukee, WI. 1/3lb ground beef, with Sobelman’s secret seasoning; three slices of various types of cheeses, three pieces of bacon, topped with jalapenos, all served on a freshly baked country butter roll.

  • Nadora

    Gotta give it to
    In-N-Out. I think I had my first one in Norco, CA. And of course their fries took it to the next level! yum

  • MJ

    I have had so many great burgers in the past can’t pick just one right now. Someone posted about a 100% bacon burger! Where? A lot of people have meationed 5 Guys but they are so overrated…

  • Paul Santos

    Plan B Burger in Orange, CT makes a helluva burger as well! Their Squeeler is my favorite. Half Pork half Beef, bacon, lettuce and tomato…Oh yeah!

  • Hm, personally I think the best burger isn’t from a restaraunt or anything, but rather from a close friend of mine in Washington (state). He made some real good burgers while I was there and were tasty and juicy that it was heaven on earth if it ever existed. Just one of those melt-in-you-mouth type of deals.

  • Billy Goat Tavern in Chicago – Double Cheezeborger with Bacon! It’s a Chicago Classic! Always fresh and juicy.

  • Near my hometown of Brookings SD, the best is Nick’s Hamburgers. The joint has been locally owned for decades and the menu is classic slider type hamburgers and cheese burgers made with fresh baked buns. They are tasty little grease bombs but offer great hangover killing qualities. Nick’s Hamburgers in down-town Brookings, SD “Buy ’em by the bag!”

  • Not to go all chain restaurant, but the Oktoberfest Burger at Red Robin is on of my favorite burgers of all time. Pretzel bun, beer mustard, onions, ham. Makes me mouth water every year.

  • My favorite cheeseburger is not just a burger, but what we in Rochester call a “garbage plate”. 2 Cheeseburgers on top of home fries and mac salad, throw some meat sauce on there (hot sauce with beef in it) and possibly some mustard and ketchup, mix it all together and you get a garbage plate. (or as we have come to call it… a “plate”.)

    My favorite place to get a cheeseburger plate is called “The Stock Exchange” in downtown Rochester NY. Their meat sauce make it SOOO much better than any other plate I’ve ever had, and it makes the whole plate just amazing.

  • Clintphare

    The 5-8’s club in Minneapolis has the best da#n cheeseburger in town! The place is truly a dive with an outstanding burger.

  • Anthony Dasilva

    Best burger is in Calgary, Alberta at the Holy Grill. Get a Ranch Burger, 2 fresh natural, hormone free ground beef patties standard, bacon, provolone, ranch and all the fixins, grilled to perfection with some hearty fries.

    They employ their own “Beef Whisperer”. His name is Lloyd.

  • Jorge Gonzalez

    best burger was @ Edzo’s burger shop in Evanston. They cut and grind there beef every morning. Best burgers in Chicago!

  • You can call me a sell-out, but I love a 3/4 lbs. bacon cheeseburger from Fuddruckers – with mushrooms, onions, ketchup, A1 sauce and queso… heart attack on a plate!

  • MTPenguin

    The best burger I’ve had recently is one from Edelweiss bar near Clark, WY. The grilled jalapenos were the bomb. Rendezvous in Billings, MT Costco parking lost a close second for the price and service.


  • Nola Joe

    Company Burger in New Orleans. Burgers are ground and hand formed in house. Buns are baked fresh daily. Bread & butter pickles made in house. They have a mayo bar with different flavors of mayo all made in house. Double cheesburger with grilled red onions, extra pickles and bacon mayo is my favorite! Or sometimes I add a fried egg to take over the top!

  • Chris Simons

    Hands down it’s the double cheeseburger from the Bean Barn in Greeneville, TN.

  • Best burgers I ever had? That’s an easy one, street vendor “hamburguesas” while living in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico circa 1996. There was just something about them that to this day has yet to be beat. Everything was cooked when you ordered right on the griddle, even the bun was toasted on the griddle top. The whole thing was put together with cheese, lettuce, onion, avocado, crema, and ketchup, then wrapped in wax paper and handed to you. If you tried to eat it without leaning forward, even while standing, you were guaranteed to wind up wearing it. Mmmmmmm…. Wait, how fast can I get from NY to Baja?

  • dsim91

  • Dan Balliro

    I have a soft spot for Johnny Rocket’s Smoke House Double. It’s got smoked bacon, crispy sourdough onion rings, cheddar cheese and special recipe “Smoke House” barbecue-ranch sauce. I could use one right now, actually.

  • A.C.

  • Jesse Funk

    personally, i like red robin burgers and the bottomless fries that come with it are good too

  • supermiah

    My wife makes Sweet Onion Burgers. Best EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Adam Staggenborg

    Cozy Burgers at Cozy Inn, Salina, KS. The best sliders around. Makes White Castle taste like crap.

  • Cory Parker

    I’m in Queens, NY and for me the best burger would be Bare Burger located in forest hills. Nothing like the Big Blue Bacon with either Bison or Ostrich, and then of course the Maple Bacon Cheeseburger with Bison. Talk about awesome 🙂

  • My vote would have to be the Spicy Baja burger at Smashburger in Grand Rapids, MI (and any other Smashburger locations). Topped with pepper jack cheese, guacamole, lettuce, tomato, onion, spicy chipotle mayo and fresh (yes, fresh) jalapeños, every bite is a true joy.

  • Andrew Baylor

    I’m in San Diego and the best burger I’ve ever had is at Burger Lounge. The beef is 100% grass fed, but what really sets this burger apart is their use of a really premium bun. Lots of places have decent burgers, but they put them on cheap buns.

  • RelentlessPace

    The Big Cat (with Sanchez Sauce) from Hoagie Haven in Princeton, NJ. It’s a quadruple bacon cheeseburger with four fried eggs on it, essentially making it Hangover-B-Gone

  • Chris

    Houston’s (chain) does a pretty good bacon cheeseburger. Good because the patty is thick, juicy, and fresh. Bacon is crispy too.

  • Jerry Runion

    Jimmy’s Pizza in Calumet, Michigan has one of the best cheese burgers in our area (U.P. of Michigan).

  • Danrarbc

    Ruby Tuesday’s triple primes are pretty good. The patties are high quality meat.

  • MTPenguin

    My favorite burger is one recently tasted @ Edelweiss bar near Clark, WY. Other than that, the Rendezvous is a close second.


  • Sean Stone

    Never got to try it, but Slater’s 50/50 had an ALL BACON burger. 100% ground bacon patty, topped with thick cut bacon, bacon island dressing, bacon cheddar cheese and a fried egg. They called it “The ‘merica” That burger has Epic written all over it, even without having tried it, how can it not be my favorite?

  • Best burger I ever had was in a dive bar in Minneapolis. they stuffed the burger with blue cheese and bacon. I Marvin McNutted my pants.

  • The best burger is the a1 peppercorn burger from red robin ! Why is it ? Because it taste sooooo good

  • Jon Gee

    I keep it simple. Five Guts cheeseburger with pickles, onions and lettucs. Ketchup, mayo and mustard. Nothing better than a hot, greasy cheeseburger.

  • iFail

    I guess my extreme enthusiasm for Five Guys wasn’t appreciated by the moderator…

    In any event, perfectly cooked burgers placed in a foil pouch to perfectly melt the cheese. Choose your own toppings and it is the best burger around. Period.

  • Honestly, the burgers I enjoy most are the ones I make on my grill. Everyone is a unique masterpiece. I’ll add a different blend of seasonings to each burger, mix it in while forming the patty, then grill it and accentuate with whatever toppings are appropriate. Like a Pizza Burger, with an Italian blend and a little sauce, topped with a little more sauce, and mozzerella. Or a nice breakfast burger, add a little heat to the meat with cayenne and tabasco, top with bacon, cheddar and a fried egg. Or the Ragin’ Cajun: a little creole seasoning into the burger, topped with pepper jack. The American Indian: add in curry powder and top with sour cream or yogurt. The Gyro-Wannabe: mixed and topped with tzatziki sauce and sliced cukes. I’m in New Market, VA if you ever want to try one! (Breakfast burgers are my usually my favorite.)

  • Jack Hoffman

    Cottage Bar in Grand Rapids, MI has THE BEST burgers…my fav is the ol’ Cottage Burger with the rye bun and Hickory mayo, but there’s always something different like the Alaskan Salmon burger or the very yummy Cherry Burger (11% MI cherries). You can’t go wrong.

  • Rachel

    The disappointing thing about living in the middle of nowhere is having nothing but chain restaurants to go to. 🙁 With that said, the best burger I’ve had from a restaurant would have to be Red Robin.
    And now I am seriously craving a burger. Damnit.

  • Christian Guarino

    Smashburger in Mahwah, NJ, must have the NJ Big Smash! So amazing, crispy onions, perfect seasoning, feta cheese and whatever else you can think of. Top it off with smash fries and you’re good to go!

  • George Rudgers

    The Good Earth Burger @ Good Earth in Edina, MN: All natural beef, caramelized onions, portobello mushrooms, avocado, gruyere cheese, sunflower sprouts and a red pepper aioli. One a scale of 1 to 10, it’s amazeballs! I order mine with a bison burger patty.

  • The Garbarge Burger at max & Erma’s in Pittsburgh. I can’t even remember all of the stuff that was on it anymore, but it was good.

  • ericsorensen

    The best burgers are the ones I make and cook on my grill, right here in Bossier City, Louisiana. They are the best because I make them just the way I like.

  • Brandon McAnsh

    You have to admit 5 Guys + Cajun fries are pretty damn good.

  • ProZomby

    Royal Red Robin Burger! C’mon! Eggs on a Burger! SO GOOD!

  • znewman

    The Stub’s Signature at Stub and Herbs in Minneapolis, MN I think is my favorite. It combines some of the best things: bacon, portabella mushrooms, grilled onions, cheese, etc. It’s fantastic and their pretzel buns are the best!

  • Best burger by far is JL Beers in Fargo, ND. Not only are they cheap burgers but they expand the menu by a couple burgers a year. My favorite has to be the Humpty Dumpty. You order the humpty dumpty which comes with a fresh meat patty, shaped in front of you to sear, cheese and a fried egg. But to make this the best burger you must order the egg Over-Easy, add Bacon as well as a second patty. No ketchup or mustard needed, when that egg yolk breaks it is burger bliss. Not to mention their fries and potato chips they cut and make in front of you.

    P.S. The huge beer selection with rotating taps is a bonus.

  • My favorite burger is actually from a place that recently closed in Richmond, VA, The Belvidere at Broad. Love their 1/2 pound burger for how different it was from anything else I’d ever had. Ciabatta bun with siracha aioli. I normally got it with bacon and smoked gouda but there were options like roasted red peppers and avocado as well.

  • Joshua Dudash

    I love a local sports bar called Joe Cracker in Port Charlotte, FL.
    The first time I went there, I was pretty hungry and in the mood for a big burger. I ordered the double angus bacon cheeseburger (i think there is also a triple). The size of the double was so big, I could barely get my hands around it. It ended up lasting me for 2 days of leftovers. Not only was it a big burger, it was very juicy and cooked to order. I would recommend it to anyone in the area.

  • DanThompson87

    I absolutely LOVE the “Burnin’ Love Burger” from Red Robin in FL!!! a Medium Rare burger wih Pepper Jack Cheese, Jalapenos, and Salsa!! It’s quite amazing!

  • pgbod33

    I think I’ve eaten too many burgers over the last 25 years to remember the absolute best one, but the best I have had in the last few years was at Becks Prime in Houston, TX. It was a 1/2 pound bacon cheeseburger. Beck’s is a local drive-thru burger chain that cooks their pattys to order. They are really good, and great on the go.

  • rwking

    Green Iguana in Tampa, FL. Cheesiest cheese burger……name says it all!

  • Jake’s Wayback in South Eastern Pa and Northern Delaware is amazing. It is like a combination between In-N-Out Burger and 5 guys. Throw on some hot sauce, barbecue sauce, and grilled onions and you got yourself a delicious burger.

  • Paul Green

    Portillo’s Bacon Cheeseburger in Chicago. Can’t get enough

  • Nathan Webb

    Sorry, but the best burgers come from my own grill 🙂 Seasoned and cooked to perfection every time!

  • jmodawg

    If you come to Atlanta, stay away from places like Flip (unless you want an amazing milkshake) as they are small burgers that are overpriced and honestly nothing spectacular. My favorite burger in Atlanta is hands down Park Tavern at Piedmont Park. It has great views and is dog friendly. However, be warned they are only open for dinner starting at 5! Make sure to get the onion rings for your side as they are amazing!!!

  • Two Hippies Gnarly Burger Joint in Phoenix, AZ is the epitome of what a truly awesome and flavorful burger should be. Made by people who know how to cure the munchies and then perfected it.

  • The half time burger at the Half Time Bar and Grill in Hazel Dell, WA. It has egg, ham, cheese, and all the other fixens a burger should have. Always brought to you hot and juicy!

  • 3M4NU31

    One of the best burgers I’ve had, is the Royal Robin from Red Robin! Yummmm! Really though, basically it’s a regular Red Robin burger, but with an egg added to it & its D-Licious!
    Nexus 7 please?

  • Peter Barrera

    A local favorite here in MA suburbs is the Warrior burger at the The Dudley Chateau in Wayland MA. 1/2 pound burger stuffed with blue cheese and topped with crisp hickory smoked bacon. Even better with a side of wings instead of fries. Not a very heart healthy option, but deeeeelicious!

  • iFail

    FIVE GUYS MOTHER-FERS!!! Nobody compares. Perfectly cooked burgers encased in an aluminum foil pouch that locks in flavor and puts the perfect melt on the cheese. Add whatever toppings you fancy. There is no better burger.

  • tz3026

    Terrys Turf Club. Cincinnati, Ohio. The meat seasoning is incredible. They offer a serrated knife because it is so big. I like mine simple. American cheese and bacon. You don’t need any other condiments because it is so juicey and flavorful.

  • Adam Wiggins

    As someone already said, Swenson’s Galley Boy in NE Ohio. Amazingly delicious.

  • Wes Turner

    Dutch Mill In Rock Hill, SC Old school double cheese greasy gut bomb! Wonderful!

  • The Black & Bleu Burger from Buffalo Wild Wings is my favorite.

  • my fav used to be fudruckers back in the day. you used to be able to just order a plain burger and then hit the toppings bar and put whatever the hell you wanted on it. of course they got rid of that.

  • igloobunny

    My favorite burger is a bison burger at a local Chicago establishment called Villains!

  • Original 5 Napkin Burger at 5 Napkin Burger, Boston & NY. Their beef is fresh, never frozen, you can taste the difference. gruyere cheese, caramelized onions, rosemary aioli, soft white roll… mmm. (although, the fries need help)

  • Blue Bacon Burger from the Training Table in Salt Lake City. Amazing crispy thick bacon, blue cheese, and a great burger. Matched with their cheese fries and special dipping sauce its fantastic.

  • nlwilkins

    There’s a little burger joint called Slap Daddy’s in Valdosta, Ga. The have the juiciest burgers I’ve ever eaten. Highly recommended if your passing through on the way to or from Florida, but don’t stay too long

  • After seeing the place on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives I had to check it out.
    Pawleys Front Porch in Columbia, SC. Meat ground and seasoned in house really makes these burgers tasty.
    My favorite is the Isle of Palms….on the ciabatta roll.
    Isle of Palms: housemade pimento cheese and jalapeno bacon
    Served on a ciabatta roll, multi-grain kaiser roll, pretzel bun or sesame kaiser roll.

  • Lark Burger. Dont’ know if this place exists out of Boulder, CO but DAMN… great burger.

  • Any Burger from 5 Guys Burgers and Fries

    The small char-grilled burgers at Cook-Out!

  • I would say In n Out or Five Guys. Actually ate Five Guys for the first time in Phoenix about three weeks ago, and their fries were great too!

  • maxkobi

    If you ever visit south bend, Indiana, there is a small place called the kitchenette. Its family owned and a great joint for home style food. They have amazing burgers and great fries! Be sure to get the bbq burger! And to top it off its like 4.50 for the meal! Pretty awesome!

  • Jack Paleczny

    Tavern in The Square in Allston, MA has MAKE your own burgers, different breads and different patties (turkey, beef, chicken), simply amazing!

  • Jason Chance

    While I love 5 guys burgers, whenever I’m in Deerfield Beach, Florida there’s an AMAZING burger shop call “Charm City Burgers”. It’s a small burger shop that is so well loved that there is rarely an empty seat, so I suggest to take it to go. At Charm City you can get almost any type of Burger you want from the normal burgers to more exotic Burger/Sloppy Joe. You can also get almost any topping including an fried egg and a huge piece of Hash Brown. They also have tater tots which is always a nice touch at any restaurant. My favorite Burger there is the Cowboy style burger “Kobe Style”.

  • My local Smashburger had a group of people come in and create a new burger. The Team Awesome burger has swiss cheese, fried egg, grilled onion, sautéed spinach, and chipotle Mayo

  • My girlfriend makes the best burgers ever! In any town any where!

  • bigsmoothz88

    Best burger ever is the Royal Robin from Red Robin. A runny fried egg with bacon on a burger! I would need a defibrillator if I eat any more!

  • Bonzix

    Scotty’s here in Indy has some pretty excellent burgers. For “fast food” I’d definitely go with In N Out (too bad they are West Coast only). Maybe considered fast food but a 3X3 Animal Style is tough to beat.

  • THE GUACAMOLE BACON SIX DOLLAR BURGER from Carl’s JR…Georgetown, TX. Why? Because it’s BIONIC!

  • Andrew Soderna

    KUMAS CORNER in CHICAGO – yes, it has become a bit over-exposed, but ignore the lines and Guy Fieri’s praise and it is still a set of absolute killer burgers… The Pantera (Roasted Poblano Pepper, Bacon, Chedder and Monterey Jack, House made Ranchero Sauce, Tortilla Strips) is my favorite, but you can’t ignore the Plague Bringer (Roasted Garlic Mayo, Tortilla Strips, House Made Hot Sauce, Fresh Garlic, Pepper Jack, Sliced Jalapenos) or the Lair of the Minotaur (Caramelized Onions, Pancetta, Brie, Bourbon Soaked Pears)

  • The best cheeseburger is 100% Angus ground beef bacon cheese burger with lettuce and tomato, so juicy you need a roll of paper towels! Where to go for this amazing tasete sensation? My kitchen!

  • ant

    fried egg burger, kelly’s tavern, virginia beach, va. i love this burger so much, i don’t care that everytime i eat one, i greatly increase the chance of me having a heart attack. there are worse ways to go.

    It has to be Blimpy Burger in Ann Arbor, MI! I believe it is made out of 75% grease with an egg on top!

      a quad with egg and salami on a kaiser is my 2nd favorite burger.

  • My favorite burger is from a local place called Restaurant 55. Its called the breakfast burger. it has a patty with sage mixed in so it tastes like sausage and is topped with a fried egg and bacon and cheese. Its amazing!!!

  • drtunx

    Five guys Chicago but almost a tie with Blackies Chicago! Now I am hungry and will binge on both today – thanks Droid Life !

  • tbaybe

    best ever? was from “John’s Garage” in Chicago… by far the best, juicy, flavorful, YUM however this was years ago and they are no longer around 🙁

  • Lewis Burger, Lewis’ Pub Norwood, MA. Sure, egg salad on a burger is a crazy idea but it is a-freakin-mazing

  • In N Out double double, or if you want gourmet, Flathead Burger Glacier Dip, which is bacon, jalapenos, chili relish….mmm

  • Buy This

    KC goober burger with PB. Delish

  • KING WING in hillsborough nj, prokroll egg peperjack cheese, jalapenos, onion rings, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  • strozykowski

    It might be cheesy to pick a chain restaurant, but the Baconator at Wendy’s (in my case, LaVale, MD) is amazing. It’s the best, because: Bacon.

    When I go out to a restaurant to sit down and eat, I rarely get a cheeseburger. Usually a steak or something.

  • Kewpee cheeseburgers in Lima, Ohio.. Northwest Ohio… Use to go here all the time with my dad, but I moved 4 hours away and make it back every couple of years . It’s not a classy joint but the burgers are excellent!

  • motta2003

    Best burger was at 5 Guys – a Triple with bacon and Cheese. No other toppings (I’m a flavor purist) and had the cajun fries…

  • Phil Austin

    It’s a toss up between the Red Robin Bacon Cheeseburger and my friend’s brown sugar burgers…. crap, now i’m hungry.

  • Five Guys Bacon Cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, a1, and cajun fries 4/20 2002 Springfield VA….you know it was the greatest. Its one of the orginal 5 guys.

  • mikel61101

    McDouble because I’m a cheap bastard from Grove, OK

  • Going with a classic big Mac from any McDonalds across the world. Where else can you find something so consistent globally?

  • Ken Jensen

    Agree with a majority of others, any 5 guys in the DC region…bacon cheeseburger, lettuce, tomato, grilled and raw onions, pickles, ketchup and mustard. Best burger hands down and always fresh.

  • The best burger has to be Swenson’s Galley Boy in Akron Ohio. This thing is amazing. They mix a little brown sugar in the meat to give it a bit of a sweet flavor, it has a secret sause, two patties, the cheese is always nice and gooey, and the bun is toasted with a little butter. Cant forget the green olive with a pimento on top. Just amazing.

    • Adam Wiggins

      I was literally coming here to write the same thing.

      I was undecided about lunch until a second ago.

    • peeyourownpants

      loved this place too

  • The best burger I have ever had is the Thurminator at Thurmin’s cafe in Columbus OH.

  • Andilicious217

    The Star Burger from The Shooting Star Saloon in Huntsville, UT (Utah’s oldest bar).
    The Star Burger is a double patty hamburger with the knackwurst split down the middle and loaded on the top.

  • Robert Manlapaz

    bacon, sharp american, LTO, mayo, and a fried egg from red robin or any restaurant that serves it – baltimore, Md

  • cyclejoc

    Five Guys in Hotlanta! Consistently fresh and juicy. Love the bag of fries.

  • Shawn Carter

    If you are ever in the Clearwater area, Courtside Grill has the best black n’ blu burger I have ever had in my life. Not much else can top it in my opinion.

  • flosserelli

    Why is everyone raving about 5 Guys? I have tried multiple locations and their burgers are always meh, especially for a “specialty” restaurant. I’ll take a 5 Guys burger over McDonald’s or Wendy’s any day, but on the grand scale of awesomeness, 5 Guys is only mediocre at best. They DO give you a lot of food for the money — the fries alone will feed a small family — but you can get a better tasting burger elsewhere.

    Love Shack > Smashburger > Freddy’s Steakburgers > Culver’s > Mooyah > 5 Guys > Steak & Shake

  • Tom Dwenger

    My favorite burger is a jucy lucy, created in my home state. Basically it a burger that has chesse in the middle of the burger and they are awesome

  • Brian Spearman

    Five Guys Burger and Fries. Double bacon cheeseburger with everything on it. One of the best burgers I’ve ever had. And don’t forget their cajun fries. Side note, I had a burger from Chilis a couple weeks ago, and it was unexpectedly really good

  • Jeff Suina

    If you’re ever in Albuquerque, you must have a Whataburger green chile double cheesburger. Heaven.

  • androiddict

    Dinkers bacon cheese burger with lettuce, tomato, mayo and a fried egg. it’s a dive bar in Omaha, NE, but it is deliciuos!!!!!!!!!

  • Jeff

    In and Out Burger, for the win! They make everything fresh, and it’s so frickin tasty, I can’t even stand it. The sad part is that they’re only on the West Coast, so those of us in the Midwest can merely dream about our next trip out there for some burger perfection.

  • Matt Bailey

    I live right behind Ray’s Hellburger, where the president eats (and where he took Dmitri Medvedev to sample an American burger) but I think I prefer the classic bacon burger from Z-Burger.

  • Boston Burger Company in Davis Square, Boston MA. You can customize your own, mine would be the Mac Attack with mushrooms and jalapeno.

    Other than that my favorite burger would have to be one I created myself. It’s a mix of ground beef with hot italian sausage. Mixed with garlic, onions, black pepper, cracked red pepper, ketchup, worcestshire sauce, soy sauce, little olive oil, an egg. Formed into balls stuffed with shredded swiss cheese then formed into a patty.

  • Nelson

    My favorite is the cheeseburger from Burger’s Priest in Toronto. It’s great because they grind the meat fresh right there and it is really juicy.

  • Best one I had was at an Irish-style restaurant. Bacon and fried egg on a burger just cannot be beaten

  • eddie

    Burger Bar in las Vegas, made by top chef Hubert Keller. My favorite is the Kobe burger with thick cut bacon and maytag blue cheese. The beef was so tender, the bacon cooked perfectly, and the blue cheese so flavorful it was a perfect burger experience.

  • RoboRobP

    Red Robin – Bleu Ribbon Burger. I love anything with Bleu Cheese. I’m pretty sure they are nationwide.

  • Éclair

    Smash burger’s spicy baja burger with a fried egg in there for the win!!! Though admittedly the burger taste differs from store to store, the good ones are really good!

  • mcc32

    5 guys double cheese with bacon!

  • rorymcgrath

    In-N-Out. Period.

  • SEJ326

    Gotta go with the original. A burger from Louis’ Lunch in New Haven, the birthplace of the hamburger. Nothing fancy about it. Simple and still made the same way it has been since the early 1900s.

  • If you ever come to Columbia South Carolina. You’ve got to head to Pawley’s Front Porch and try the Caw Caw Creek Burger. It’s a big juicy fire grilled half pound burger with housemade jalapeno pimento cheese, bread and butter pickled green tomato with jalapeno bacon and grilled onions. Try it with either their great handmade french or sweet potato fries.

  • Anthony Guange

    Fuddruckers in MA, Well Done, Cheddar, Bacon, BBQ sauce, Lettuce.

  • 5 Guys. Double cheese with BBQ, onions and pickles.

  • Nena12

    The best burger I have ever had is from In-n-Out in Henderson, NV. My favorite burger is a double double with extra cheese and ketchup only! Yes I am very simple! It happens to also be the first place I ever worked so it goes hand in hand 😉 I remember the first time I tried a burger from there and it was just amazing along with the yummy fries. Every year my husband and I try to go to Las Vegas to visit my friend and we eat at In-n-Out at LEAST 3 times! LOL! Till today after having burgers from restaurants and other eateries such as Five Guys etc it still does not equal the great taste of In-n-Out burgers! YUM!

  • Ardiac

    From Ithaca NY, I like the pines burger from glenwood pines. It’s big, juicy, and everything else a burger should be, leaving you satisfied.

  • Blanc at the Plaza in KansasCity, MO. Makes a “Inside out burger”
    A Blue cheese stuffed burger, applewood-smoked bacon, onion ring,
    house-made ketchup + mustard, butter lettuce, onion brioche bun.
    Literally the best thing for your mouth.

  • CopierITGuy

    The best burger is the one I grill in my backyard! Thick, juicy and good!

    However, the best burger that I spend money on is at a little hole-in-the-wall place in the very small town of Mena, AR. It’s nearly 2 hours away, but I’m there for work occasionally. Best burger within 250 miles!

  • Gary Keeler

    I gotta go with the Pig Pen from the 5-8 Club. A delicious combination of cheese and bacon stuffed patty with fried onions on top. Words can’t describe just how awesome it is when you bite in and the molten cheese slowly seeps out of the patty. Next time you’re around the Minneapolis area you should definatly stop in.

  • Lester Li

    Living in Atlanta, Holeman Finch’s burgers are glorious. Home made buns, cheese, ketchup and mustard. Grass-fed beef from a local farm…. aaaaand now I want one.

  • For me, the local (Charlotte, NC) best burger is a threeway (!) tie:

    1) The Burger Company, a local place. They grind their beef on-site, so they can make your delicious to-order creation as rare (read:yumminess) as you like.

    2) Diamond, a locally famous diner, for their “full blown hemi”, a full pound (triple) of artery and colon destroying party-in-yo-mouf. Other options, for the less manly or suicidal, include the “small block”, a 1/3rd lb single, the “big block”, a 2/3rd lb double, and some of the best fried pickles in the south.

    3) My place, for the hands-down best homemade monstrosity anywhere. Come on out, bring Tim-o, and we’ll party it up right, burger stylee. N to the omz.


    edit: fixed the most unfortunate typo possible.

  • The Brasserie Burger at Rue de Jean in Charleston, SC. Quality and taste are best I’ve had anywhere in the country.

  • Willy Burger in Beaumont, TX.
    The cheeseburgers are sinful. SO greasy and cheesy and AMAZING.
    Also, it has a 50’s theme which makes it a fun experience.

  • Matthew Newman

    Bill’s Cafe in Kingwood, TX has the best burger I’ve ever eaten. The place is little more than a trailer and a decent sized patio area. The definitive hole-in-the-wall big fat greasy burger.

  • My favorite is the soy bacon burger at Cafe Blossom in NYC because it tastes soo good and it’s vegan!

  • Red Robin has a Salmon Burger that I still dream about after 3 years.

  • My favorite Burger comes from the Vortex Bar and Grill in Atlanta, GA. They have two burgers that have been my favorite for over 10yrs!!

    ELVIS BURGERSlathered with a King-sized helpin’ of smoothpeanut butter, bacon and fried bananas.
    Made with two half-pound Vortex sirloin patties stacked inside three grilled cheese sandwiches, topped with twofried eggs, eight slices of American cheese, ten slices of bacon and plenty of mayo on the side. With thisburger we choose your side for you, and it’s a big bowl of fries and tots covered in our cheesy-cheese goo.This super-stack is a heart attack waiting to happen.

    I mean Peanut butter and fried bananas on a burger is harmony in every way.

    And for the Triple Bypass, using two grilled cheese sandwiches as the buns is absolutely amazing!!!


  • kanly23

    The Cuban burger at BGR in Tampa FL. Its a burger with a Cuban sandwich built on top 🙂

  • Wahlburgers was pretty darn good.

  • zUFC

    it’s a toss up between 5-Guys and Fudruckers. I’d say Fud has a slight edge though. Love them all from there.

  • stephen w

    grindhouse killer burger at the curb market, grindhouse style with the sauce

  • This is easy. There is a bar and grille in Winston-Salem, NC, called The District, with literally the best and most succulent burger that will ever enter your mouth. The first time I visited it, a friend said, “Hey man you have to try their signature labeled burger, called “The District”. So without checking a menu, I ordered it. I got served a burger that was monstrous. It was 2 half pound (yes, 1lb total) Angus Beef patties, on a PRETZEL roll. It had lettuce, tomato, and a chipotle mayo that they make in house. AND THAT’S NOT ALL! It had 6 slices of quarter inch thick bacon and real cheddar cheese, healthy slices of it. Served with your choice of side — and they have fries that rival Five Guys.

    Why was this was this the best burger I have eaten? Because it had perfect grille flavoring, it was juicy, everything on it tasted fresh, the mayo gave it the appropriate zing, and most importantly, I am a man…and this burger was MAN SIZED with MAN SIZED bacon slices.
    No chain joint can rival this burger! The best 13 bucks to spend, ever. I think that may be my lunch break today. And it is actually a kind of classy place. Here is their site: http://www.districtbarandgrille.com/

  • Lion’s Tap in Eden Prairie, MN is the best! Their burgers are simple but whatever recipe they use is amazing. I think they could easily become a chain, but it is a family owned restaurant and I really respect them for not expanding.

  • Sauce’s in Pittsburgh, PA, The Cast Iron Signature Skillet Burger – Served naked topped with roasted peppers, balsamic glaze, crispy onions and buffalo mozzarella with a side of Mac N cheese. Alright, I made myself hungry. I’m going to get one now.

    The best burger is from the twon of steamboat springs Colorodo from a Double Z. its a 1/2 lb burger always cooked medium to medium-well it is always juicy. with a large hadfull of frys. its a must if you are traveling there.

  • Kerry Knopp

    The Macaroni and Cheese Burger from Cheesecake factory is my current fave. A yummy patty topped with a flattened, fried ball of macaroni and cheese, all smothered in melted cheese. So many great flavors.

  • Double Cheeseburger, in Rochester NY from Wimpy’s Burger Basket. Best burger ever because once you’ve finished it, it’ll leave you craving for more. 🙂

  • JustTrollin69

    A burger from Five Guys is my favorite. That is how bacon is supposed to be, the fries they blend so perfectly.

  • Ryan Milton

    Coffee Burger 2312 Garrett, Drexel Hill, yes you heard me, coffee burger! Imagine a very high quality beef, marinated in coffee which enhances- – nay draws out–the succulent beef flavors that only reside in your imagination. When seared, with caramelized onions, thick Applewood bacon,, sharp Vermont cheddar, spring lettuce, all on a fresh and tender brioche roll…. Aaahhh. Sure the accents of homemade Belgian fries and micro-brew are wonderful, but juicy, seared burgers like this are hiding, and waiting to be discovered! I need one now!

    • Ryan Milton

      That’s in PA

  • Mugs on Missouri in Clearwater Florida. The burgers made there have some kind of special magic put into them. The burger is so fresh and delicious and they are big and juicy. I have eaten these burgers for many years and they are truly the best burger you will ever eat. I have tried many burgers from many states and countries, but you won’t find a better burger than the one they serve at mugs.

  • PyroHoltz

    Freddy’s Steakburger here in Colorado. In California it’s definitely In’n’Out.



  • If you’re in Nashville, TN, then you’ll want to go to Gaby’s Burgers (
    http://www.gabbysburgersandfries.com) for local grass-fed beef burgers and sweet potato fries. It’s near the Nashville Sounds minor league baseball park.

  • If you’re ever in the DC/Baltimore area…you have to take a short detour to Laurel, MD and have a burger at PW’s Sports Bar…they never freeze their meat…always fresh and the burger is to die for!

    • Sven Enterlein

      I shall try that! Not too far from Frederick 🙂

  • Best burger I’ve ever had is from a little biker bar in Murfreesboro, TN called Buster’s. It’s a huge burger, grilled fresh to order, with whatever fixins ya want, served with crinkle fries and a beverage. Damn…..now I want a burger, and I haven’t even had coffee yet!

    • Cody Thomas

      Busters does make a mean burger. They are to burgers what Slick Pig is to wings in the Boro.

  • Portillo’s cheeseburger, everything, no onion. It’s gotta be the best honest-to-goodness thing.

  • Illegitimi non Carborundum

    Five Guys always great, but another treat can be found at the Jackson House in Harrisburg PA

  • James_Kernicky

    Fudruckers…if you can still find them.

  • i love 5 guys, in&out and all the others but my favorite burger is when my room mates and i have a cook out on our porch/backyard. we just buy our own meat and season and cook it ourselves. Cant give you the secret recipe but its delicious and also offers a real good and fun break from school to just hang out with our friends (HINT: juicy burgers with hickory smoked cheddar grilled right in side)

  • Five Guys burgers can’t be beat. Just simply the best around.

  • Geoff Rodrigue

    The Bottom Line in Metairie, LA. Just a really good bar burger at the end of a hard night of drinking in New Orleans.

  • Nick

    I know that I may be the outcast, but I love White Castle Burgers, and it isn’t only because of Harold and Kumar. When my wife and I began dating, I would hit White Castle for a sack and eat them on my way home. Just the plain cheesburgers with onions. So awesome.

  • Sumo burger at Big Nick’s in NYC. It’s open all night, which is how I found it in the first place. Now I make a point to stop in for a burger whenever I’m in New York for some reason.

    If you can’t find a burger variety you like on the menu at Big Nick’s, then I don’t think you really like burgers


  • Alistair Bates
  • Eta508

    For St. Louis, the obvious choice is Concord Grill – they have FORTY-TWO different burgers on their menu http://www.concordgrill.com/concordmenu.htm#burgers
    If you have a hard time picking your toppings at Five Guys to make the style of burger you want to eat that day, this menu would cause you to break down in panic. Not only does this place have a crazy variety, the quality is also top-notch. My wife doesn’t even like burgers but she’ll eat them here.

  • Jamarcus White

    Bard’s Burgers located in Covington/Latonia Ky. The 5-0 Burger, uses a slightly cooked glazed donut for the bun for your sweetness on your meat satisfaction…..lol. If your into sweetness on your meat like I am…..lol. Add bacon and ketchup and (inmySamuelLJacksonvoice) it is a tasty burger.

  • SlipperieSlope

    The best burger I’ve ever had is from Lions Tap in Chanhassen, MN. They bake their buns in house, use the ground chuck and cook it medium-rare as it should be. If I could pair it with some In-N-Out fries, it would be heaven!

    • tehserver

      Now I want to go there just to try that. It sounds amazing.

  • Prox

    My favorite cheeseburger is the original 5 napkin burger from five napkins in union square nyc. The burger features a 10oz succulent ground beef, gruyere cheese, caramelized onions, rosemary aioli, on a soft white roll. It’s like a French flair on a great tasting cheeseburger. Sure it’s not a massive burger but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. I guaranteed. You will be satisfied

  • slider112


    Game, set, match.

  • Adam Owen

    The best ever is the crab cake burger at Brass Monkey Bar, in chester, virginia. 1/2 pound deliciously grilled to medium- well, topped with a huge hand crafted Maryland style crab cake, lettuce, tomato, onion and tarter sauce. Simple. Delicious. And side of crispy hot french fried taters.

  • My Favorite Chesseburger’s got to be from Grover’s in Amherst, NY. It’s just massive, about the size of 2 softballs. Every single one, and each one is so juicy and delicious. ah man and the buns. They make their own buns and meat. It’s just an unbelievable Cheeseburger from Grover’s. (it used to be Grover Cleavlands hunting lodge)

    Easily, hands down, the burger from Central Michel Richard in DC. Perfect Angus beef, tomato confit and its topped with these thin slices of potato discs that are ridiculously crunchy and tasty. Its 16 bucks, but worth every penny.

  • Jonathan Hall

    Normally I’d go with a bacon cheeseburger from any real dive bar/diner, but I recently had an AMAZING Black and Bleu burger (blackened burger, bleu cheese crumbles and bacon) at Emerald Rose (an Irish pub), in Billerica. Even though the burger was blackened, it was still incredibly juicy, and the spices combined with with b.c. was perfect. Add in bacon and a warm bun… mmmm, I might have to get one tonight for dinner 🙂

  • JL Beers in Fargo, ND. The JL burger for $5.19 piled high with grilled onions, cheese, special sauce and 2 hamburger patties on a fresh bun, served with fresh cut Buffalo BLU fries. Voted best burger in the Red River Valley! http://www.jlbeers.com

EO has some awesome burgers (way better than 5 guys!!) my personal favs are the Bourban street (spicy) and the Lone Star (Smoked Bacon). Crabill’s is like WhiteCastle but actually good (the record last time I was there was 46 sliders).

    The best burger I ever had was from Epcot center at Disney World. Went to the American food place, order a cheese burger with of course American cheese, thinking it would come with all the toppings that are standard on an American burger, but was wrong. It came to me plain. When I asked about the toppings they directed me to a large table with EVERYTHING you could imagine putting on a burger. OH MY GOSH was it good. The absolute best burger ever.

    the black and bleu, add bacon. Courtyard in Gadsden AL. i’m not even a bleu cheese fan, this burger is amazing!

  • This is a tough one. if you want to choose a relatively basic burger with no location involved, i’d choose a grass fed kobe beef burger with blue cheese and bacon. if you want to get specific on a restaurant, check out Village Whiskey – WHISKEY KING – MAPLE BOURBON GLAZED CIPOLLINI,

  • sciroccohsd

    Durango Burger from Firebirds Wood Fired Grill in Omaha. Pepper crusted, topped with bleu cheese sauce and port mushrooms. mmmmm

  • Doug

    A Cozy Burger from the Cozy Inn, Salina, KS. The mix of flavors they get grilling the onions in the burger is just perfect. They still grill on the original grill installed in 1922. They tried to replace the grill once and had to get the old one put back in because it changed the flavor.

  • I would have to say a Chili Cheese burger from the Clock in Williamston has to be my favorite burger of all time!

    It’s amazing.

  • Mario

    A burger is just a burger UNLESS it’s made with Buffalo! Buffalo Burgers are lean and far superior to tired old beef. Granted they cost more; how many buffalo herds do you see running around? Now, build one of these high with melted Swiss Cheese, sauteed mushrooms and barbecue sauce for the perfect burger.

  • krees

    I’d have to agree with the comments nominating 5guys. I’ll take mine with the works and add jalapeno’s!

  • I eat my burgers plain…meat and a bun…and the best is the short rib burger at Angelo’s Prime in Albany, NY.

  • 5 guys!

  • EngineerGA

    I like the burgers at Fuddruckers in the Atlanta area. They have all kinds of burgers – beef, turkey, veggie, etc. and all the good toppings. They really hiked the prices in the past couple of years, though. The cheapest burgers with fries set you back more than $10. I was shocked last time I went in for lunch.
    Chilis has a good burger too. That Smokehouse Jalapeno burger is awesome.

  • rmp20

    Nationals Park in DC recently got a Shake Shack, and I rather enjoyed it, especially when they gave me a double for the price of a single.

  • The Dallas Burger from Bobby’s Burger Place in Philly. It is spice crusted with coleslaw, monterey jack, BBQ sauce and pickles. I like to add a little bit of old bay to it as well. It is the taste of summer all year long!

  • don23lucia

    Ground sirloin patty blue cheese crumbles Buffalo sauce lettuce tomatoe grilled onion on a nice toasted ciabatta roll. Made at my house by me.

  • Josh White

    Hmmm I would have to say 5 Guys. Only had it once, but it was awesome!

  • In Minneapolis there is a place called Bullwinkle Saloon. They have a burger called The Lonely Guy. It has a garlic infused patty served with fried onions and pepperjack cheese. Its the most satisfying gutbomb you will ever ingest.

  • Ted’s Montana Grill.. Bison burger with Thick Cut Bacon, Maytag Bleu Cheese, and Grilled Anaheim Pepper…. Ridiculously Amazing!

  • Pretty much any burger from Red Robin.

  • It clogs all my arteries when consumed, but I cannot forget the first time I consumed a Wendy’s Baconator. I can still taste the animal screaming…

  • KnappyRoot

    In Cincinnati I like a 5 guys double cheeseburger “all the way”. Or on the way home from a night out you can’t go wrong with some White Castle jalapeño sliders.

  • cns2007

    Fuddruckers, 1 lb. Original. Difficult to eat in one sitting…though I have. :-0

    They use to have one in Westchester, New York, but I now have to travel almost 30 miles to Wayne, New Jersey to get one.

    I would be as dedicated and loyal to my Nexus 7 as I am to this burger.

  • The Bully from Bernies Burger Bus in Houston TX. Locally sourced awesome.

  • Brian Johnston

    Red Robin Ghost pepper burger

  • H2Oyeah

    In Chicago there are many option to choose from. Smashburger is my go to favorite for more traditional cheeseburgers but there are other more exotic options like Back ally burger. Of course you can always get the famous Billygoat Tavern cheeseburger. Cannot go wrong.

  • rockstar323

    The burger at Tupelo Honey Cafe in Asheville NC. They will cook it how you want it. If you want a little or alot of pink they’ll do it for you. I get mine medium with bacon, havarti cheese, jalapenos, and caramelized onions.

  • kretz7

    Cowboy Bacon Bbq from Talk of the Town in Overland Park, Ks. Perfect combo of juicy beef, bacon, onion straws, jalepenos, and cheese on sourdough bread.

    From down south in Clear Lake Texas, there’s a small chain of restaurants called Miller’s Cafe. Now these guys have a slew of burgers to choose from, starting with the simple cheeseburger to the Bet Ya Can’t Finish this Burger”. My personal favorite is the Shroom’ and Swiss burger. Comes with a lil over 1/2 pound of meat, grilled and sauteed onions, delicious Swiss chees, bacon if desired and all on a Poppy Seed buns. Fries with seasoned salt or humongous onion rings!! Yum Yum!!!!

  • dp917

    Smokey Bones angus cheddar cheeseburger with pulled pork and onion rings on top.

  • Shortbus25

    I’m a simple guy don’t need fancy burger restaurants a good old burger king whopper will do any day but wish they would bring back my favorite! The greatness of a Triple Whopper with Cheese was always my favorite now they don’t have it anymore and it costed about $8.00 two of their triple stacker makes for a great meal, not only do they have three pieces of meat they have three pieces of cheese and some kind of awesome sauce!!! If you haven’t had a stacker from BK you need too!!

    Mushroom and Swiss from Runza…. gaaaarrrrr sounds like a great breakfast… OFF TO RUNZA!!

  • JustinRhode

    My Favorite Burger is from a place called Hudsons Bar and Grill in Wausau WI. It was so amazing the how flavors of Beef, Bacon, and Cheese came together to make a burger masterpiece. It’s not a chain so it’s homemade goodness.

  • pepperonijack

    Definitely not the best burger in the world, but I used to like the Quad Staker from BK.Pure fat. I don’t think they’re selling them anymore.

  • c4p

    definitely in-n-out

  • Best burger… There is a Microbrewery in Bloomsburg, PA called Marley’s. They have a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Burger! What’s not to love? Juicy fat burger topped with a dip egg, cheese, hashbrowns, and frickin’ BACON!

  • Mike Mangano

    Has to be from Pub 199 in Mt. Arlington NJ. Cash only place, and all they do are lobsters, steaks and burgers, plus a good beer and I am set. Just a great burger with the fixins, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo and ketchup. Plus fries and a beer, I ask what more could a man want?

  • JSal

    L’Attitude’s feta burger. Perfect burger topped with the best crumbled feta cheese you’ve ever had! Yummy!!

  • Arjun Meda

    Veggie burger..

  • John Nagy

    The Shipwreck Burger at Wingharts Burger and Whiskey Bar in Pittsburgh, PA, Brie, carmelized onions, bacon, and white truffle aioli. Pure heaven when paired with a nice glass of Maker’s Mark.


    From Thurman’s Cafe in Columbus, OH, the best burger is called “The Thurmanator”! This thing is a beast! Google it! Its bigger than your head and better than a steak.

  • A Purdy Burger (1/3 lb beef with tomato, onion, and cheese) from The Elm Tree (I think it changed names) in Keene Valley in Upstate New York. It is one of the few places that raised its own beef and you could get a burger served medium rare. I only added ketchup and it was delicious!

  • kerrigjl

    Mushroom swiss from a local restaurant in St. Louis

  • Mike Cechi

    Favorite burger of all time was from Jake’s Wayback Burger. Burger was excellent, but the reason it was the best was that I took my grandfather there for lunch and he loved it. He passed away three days later, but at least the last time I saw him was a kickass day

  • Seth

    the mushroom-swiss burger at Macado’s in Boone, NC… just goodness

  • MooseCat

    I can’t believe I missed out on National Cheeseburger day yesterday. At least I can still get in on this since the winner won’t be selected until later.

    Man, just a simple cheeseburger would hit the spot right now.

  • LiterofCola

    Fatburger – any Los Angeles location. In-n-Out is okay.

  • seryozha

    Rons special in Oklahoma and Arkansas

  • TheGreatNate

    There’s a place called Zip’s Cafe that has arguably the best burger in town (I would argue that it does). I can’t really put my finger on why I like it so much more than Five Guys or other local places, but it is really excellent.

  • Champlification

    Crabby Patty from the Crusty Crab in Bikini Bottom.

  • The 1/2lb Kobe Burger from Zaitzeff in Financial District New York because they are so damn good.

  • Shawn Hickman

    Famous Dave’s BBQ in Florence, KY – Ultimate BBQ Burger – A juicy ground beef patty beneath a pile of Georgia chopped pork with two strips of jalapeño bacon, melted Cheddar cheese, and their signature Beam & Cola BBQ sauce.

  • red014

    If you’re in Boston, you’d have a hard time beating the 5 Napkin Burger. When the chef spins off an entire restaurant on that one burger and then names the restaurant after it, you know it’s gotta be good.

  • TrueGentleman

    The bacon and bleu cheese burger from schnippers with crispy onion and and the schnippers sauce.

  • MSlab

    I’m a big fan of just about any burger from Wild Willy’s in York, ME (though there are a few more locations now). It’s a tiny counter-order place where everything is cooked fresh and is constantly packed.

  • jzcombo

    If you find yourself on Staten Island, NYC and like burgers, you MUST stop by Duffy’s Tavern found on 650 Forest Avenue, 10310.
    One of the best burgers on the island, and quite possibly, the five boroughs.
    A succulent half a pound of meat cooked to a perfect rare to well done. Whatever your mouth desires! Instead of drowning the patty with a huge bun, all the flavors stay in the burger thanks to the toasted english muffin it rests on. Add toppings and criss-cut fries for an added bonus!
    If you want an overcooked burger with delicious toppings, go to Five Guys. If you want an amazing burger, head to Duffy’s on Staten Island.

  • Roswell Cummings

    Bacon double cheeseburger with sauteed onions, jalapenos, and crumbled chorizo from Astro’s Burgers in Boron, CA

  • Kopp’s Custard in Milwaukee. It’s huge and deliciously dripping in butter.

  • It’s local only but Mac’s can’t be beat!

  • Evan Creekmore

    The hangover burger from Brewmaster’s in Raleigh, NC. Avocado, bacon, fried egg, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato and bloody mary aioli. It’s pretty amazing, get it medium rare.

  • crshinn

    Five Guys bacon cheeseburger with everything plus bbq sauce does the trick for me. Plus, their fries are fresh, hand cut and delicious.

  • legalkill

    For chain burgers I agree with the consensus, Five Guys (little Bacon cheeseburger all the way for me).

  • reyztec

    In n Out Double Double, Animal style, FTW!

  • Any burger made by Pat LaFrieda. He’s a famous butcher in New York City and he makes these thick, juicy burgers that a lot of NYC places use. I live in Connecticut but there’s a little unassuming diner here called Georgie’s Diner in West Haven that gets their burgers from him. You would never in your life expect this place to have such great burgers when you walked in, it’s one of the best kept secrets of this area.

  • r0lct

    + burger
    + bacon
    + blue cheese
    + onion straws
    = awesome

    Many places make some variation of that and that’s usually what I look for.

    However if you’re ever in CT check out local chain Dutchess, fresh like a 5 guys and not fried/pre-done like the McDs.

  • Jason

    my own creation of a angus beef patty, 2 fried egg’s, bacon, and a hashbrown….

  • MattSweeden

    My favorite burger is from the Black Box BBQ in Benson VT. It comes with great spicy yet sweet BBQ sauce on local made beef with Cabot cheese. On top of that the buns are grilled with a bit of sauce to give it that extra flavor.

  • Christian Hayden

    Schoop’s Hamburgers, which are all across norther Indiana. Best burger ever at the Michigan Ciy location! It was truelly an awesome dinner experience. None of these box burger shops for me, gimmie Schoops any time!
    Also, in West Layfeyette Indiana the Triple XXX Family Restaurant. Always a must to stop when up there. Amazing burgers and tenderloin sandwichs PLUS they make thie own rootbeer.

  • mike b

    Bobby’s burger palace. LA burger – add bacon – yum!

  • Dtwiztid1

    I would have to say
    there are two favorite burgers right now and I can’t make my choice.

    The first one has been
    a favorite for years. It’s just a regular bacon cheeseburger with all the
    normal toppings. The burger is from a bar in downtown Cincinnati called
    Madonna’s. What makes this burger special is the seasoning they use there
    called “Slap Ya Mama”. I liked the burger so much I tracked down the
    seasoning myself and started to use it on all my grilled food.

    The second on comes from a newer local place in Florence Ky call
    Mad Mikes. This place is amazing. Fresh angus beef for their burgers and
    whatever you want on it. For me, I go with the “Shroomin” burger. 2
    patties stacked with the house sauce, cheese, fried onion straws, bacon, and
    mushrooms. All of the on a pretzel bun equals pure “cheeseburger paradise”.
    This burger is a monster once they are done with it. (Think Five Guys but 10 times better). PLus the do have the fresh cut fries too.

    So I guess I would have to say if I am in Cincinnati it would
    be the Madonna’s burger and if I am closer to home the “Shroomin” burger.

  • Hamburger Mary at The Works in Ottawa. It’s like having breakfast on a burger… but that does mean having lots of bacon and egg on an already juicy burger.

  • Kenny Tse

    Double Shack Bacon Burger with extra shack sauce from Madison Square Park Shake Shack in NYC! It’s the best because the beef blend is a perfect mix of high quality succulent 2 patties of meat blend that results in a juicy bite, the tomato is the perfect refreshing width, crisp lettuce, fresh baked potato bun is soft but firm enough to stay together and absorb juices, bacon just pushes this burger over the top!

  • Millers in Detroit has the best burgers on this side of the Mississippi

  • Walter Bennett

    Home made on my Home grill made just the way I like it. onion soup mix in the burger meat and all the fixin’s

  • Schoat333

    We have a local place called Inferno Burger in Medina Ohio. They have themed burgers for different cities throughout America. The best has to be the Austin burger. Chili, cheese, and sour cream on top of a 1/4lb patty with a pretzel bun. Now I’m Hungry.

  • Corey Foltman

    Wendy’s Baconator. From Colonie, NY. Because BACON!!!

  • subiedude85

    Hate to brag but my wife makes the best cheese burgers in Augusta. Bacon, egg and cheese burgers to be exact. The beef gets a special blend of spices and the cheese is usually pepperjack. Plus there is always a side of sweet potato fries and a Guiness Extra Stout. Let me know next time you are in town Kellex and I’ll hook you up.

  • Alan B

    Bacon Cheeseburger with pepperjack cheese, lettuce, tomato, extra bacon and a little bit of hot sauce for extra heat. This great burger can be found at BJ’s in Columbus, Ohio.

  • Peanut butter and jalepenos….

  • I gotta go with Five Guys

  • With the largest and freshest selection of toppings, it’s gotta be “5 Guys Burger and Fries”. I’m currently on a liquid diet while I prep for a colonoscopy. Heading to 5 Guys as soon as the procedure is over!

  • My favorite burger is the one from Red Robin that is pretty much a Bacon Cheeseburger with a fried egg on it…. delicious!

  • Robert

    I have to go with the Pitts-burger, from Primanti Bros.– A Pittsburgh staple, Almost Famous since 1933. Served on fresh Italian bread, piled to the sky with fresh-cut fries, tangy cole slaw, ripe tomatoes and provolone cheese RIGHT ON THE SANDWICH! It’s a meal in itself. Try (and love) the Pitts-Burger, their #2 seller, or nearly twenty other varieties of sandwiches!

  • Michael swaim

    Five Guys all the way, A DOUBLE WITH CHEESE, A1, BACON & ONION.


    If i’m need something a little lighter,

    I also like a BK Gangbang (double cheese with a Hot N spicy in the middle).

  • Burger bistro in bay ridge, brooklyn. Not only is it the best burger in the country but the options are unlimited. You have a menu at your table that allows you to check Off anything and everything you could Want. From the bun to the meat to the toppings to the sauce. It is a MUST try!

  • John Simpson

    The thing is as big as the plate!

  • Black and blue burger from Coles in Buffalo. I can’t stay away.

  • Fat Mo’s makes a 36ounce double stacker with everything on it. ITS AWESOME! Unfortunately their locations are getting thinner and thinner so i keep having to travel farther to get some of that triple bypass in waiting.

  • Jim Basilio

    My own, cooked on my grill and slathered in caramelized onions. Yum.

    Burgatory Bar Pittsburgh

  • Josh Parish

    5 Guys double cheeseburgers are awesome.
    But… for something a little different: Jimmy Jawbreaker (http://jimmysjawbreaker.com/) out of Lancaster, OH. They no longer have a restaurant/drive in, but I catch their trailer a couple times a year. I order the Jumbo Jawbreaker (3 beef patties). They also grill the buns, which helps the bun from falling apart from the juicy burger and the homemade sauce that they use.

  • Theodore’s in Buffalo, NY. Little T² with cheese, BBQ sauce and Onion rings…Sooo Good.

  • SJ Prettyman

    My favorite burger is from my kitchen, here in lower DE, where I know that I made it without dropping it on the floor. I know exactly that I am getting a half pound of meat, as much pepper jack cheese and jalepenos as I want on top, and I can cook it as long as I want…to get it just right. And if it doesn’t turn out right….I just blame my husband.

  • I am from New Orleans, La. There is a place called Company Burger and they offer a lamb and feta cheese hamburger with a house sauce. Its great! even at $8 a burger.

  • Chris Rocheleau

    Blimpie Burger in Ann Arbor, MI. Amazing little diner place. What makes them so great is how they make em! Old style flat top and they throw how ever many patties on the grill with what ever kind of cheese on each one (2 patties make a 1/4lb) and they sell up to a full pund burger. Think Subway style choices with burgers, but more of them! Ok, now i gotta go get some

  • If burger than Cheese burger from Five Guys.

Green Chili Cheese Burger, from the high school refreshments truck at The Festival of the Cranes at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in Socorro NM (the Owl Cafe up the road also has a good one…but there is nothing like eating a Green Chili Cheese Burger standing outside on a crisp November day with the Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes loud in your ears!)

  • Dilson Silva

    I make MY OWN favorite hamburger. I start off with my ground chuck (for less grease), get some Lipton Onion Mix and crumble up a bowl of Ritz crackers. I mash out my meat really good and add 2 beaten eggs and mix it together. I then add my Onion Mix and Ritz crackers to the already mixed meat. The Ritz crackers give them a sweet taste and the onion is obvious, gives it a twang. I cook them to perfection on my grill out, making them about 2 inches think and 5 inches or more in diameter. I then put them on a poppy seed bun with some fresh cut lettuce, a piece a Velvetta sliced cheese and some awesome pickles. I add a dollup of ketchup to the bottom and a splash of mustard to the top….that way the flavors mix in the middle and the bun has absorbed the condiments some, not to be too messy. Lets be honest, a messy hamburger is fun to eat, gives it character!

    I know what I’m having for supper tonight!! woohoo! Hope I get selected!

  • A buffalo burger, char-grilled in my own back yard, topped with thick-sliced bacon, avocado, and sharp cheddar on a bakery-fresh kaiser roll. Boom.

  • The Lunchbox Laboratory in Seattle has the best burgers hands down.



    You can decide to design your own, choose one of their “Experiments of the Week” (burgers with names like the Vulcan Death Grip and items like Hostess Twinkie shakes made from real twinkies), or stick to the classic menu items like Burger of the Gods and get a Drunken Elvis Shake.
    They also have a variety of sides like mini corndogs, fries, tater totes, and a variety of specialty salts and seasonings to add to them at your table. These factors gives the restaurant a lot of variety and makes it a can’t miss if you are in Seattle.

    If you ever stop by when in Seattle, Kellex I would love to know what you think.

  • ULT7xi

    Any Sonic burger is good. Greasy and fattening! : )

  • Ben

    The big mac is the best burger ever at mcd’s

  • Five guys double cheeseburger with bacon and jalapenos!

  • Regino Musa

    Elevation Burger in Miami, FL is an excellent candidate. The ingredients are the freshest and the meat is so tender. Also, they have a “Happy Hour” where you buy 1 burger and get another free. How can you go wrong with 2 for 1?!

  • Steve Douglas

    Burning Love burger from Red Robin… Yummy!

  • James E. Bryson

    Blueberry Hill in St. Louis has some great stuff but their newest creation is an 8 oz. Australian beef patty topped with Canadian bacon, American cheese and a fried egg with tater tots. Yes, tater tots!! How can you beat that and the monthly performance by Chuck Berry?? It don’t get better!!!

  • I’m in Queens, New York; I vote for The Delirious with Pepper Jack, Horseradish Sauce, Banana Peppers, & Onion Rings from Cheeburger Cheeburger.

  • Jim McClain

    there is a cajun resturant in Concord,N.C. called Razoos, that sell the best ‘cheese boiger’ its huge,its juicy, my mouth has multiple orgasms eating it,,, yum yum

  • Baconator!

  • I love the Johnny Rockets Rocket single/double. You can get this in any town with a Johnny Rockets, unfortunately the only Johnny Rockets within 2.5 hours of my house in Grand Rapids, MI is in a casino food court so I don’t go there often. I do hit them whenever I can while traveling for work. So far the nicest Johnny Rockets experience was in Calabasas, CA.

  • vincet3

    Lindburger’s has some pretty good burgers..

  • Robert Matic

    When traveling to Chicago area my favorite burger stop is Schoops. The Mickey has double cheese and all the fixings you add. Note: Schoops will take a year off your life though, greasy good.

  • Being from Portland myself and a northwest enthusiast I would have to go with 2 places and 2 burgers. The first being from mcmenamins, the tavern judge. And if you’re on your way to the coast, calamity Jane’s and their bacon-mushroom burger. Both delicious, mcmenamins being all around Portland and always a nice treat, and calamity Jane’s being an enormous burger made with love

  • Linuxknight

    For Portland OR there is the Hotcake House, which has really excellent burgers. For southern CA, I would definitely suggest Slaters 50/50, home of the 50% beef / 50 % pork patty.

  • kraymanbauer

    where i grew up, we have this place called Stanley”s. their Stanley burgers were and still the best burgers around..hands down. they grilled a ton of onions into the burgers and have such good Quebec fries to go with them. if you don”t know, their Quebec fries are hand cut fries topped with brown gravy and mozzarella cheese. when you eat a meal here you don”t not feel like eating for weeks. they are greasy and stay in your stomach like a hot iron for the rest of the day

    • r0lct

      you just made me hungry

    • tehserver

      A burger and poutine? What madness is this!?

  • my friends and I went to In N Out and ordered a 101×101 burger…one of the most fun times i’ve had. Here is a pic of me and part of the monster:

    Had to get extra lettuce and tomato to make me feel like i wasn’t going to die.
    Friends, fun, memories.

  • Bacon & Blue cheese at OutBack.

  • rjn23

    Pump Station burger from Albany Pump Station in Albany, NY. Thick, juicy, topped with bacon, pepper Jack cheese and served on a hard roll. Oh and its made with their pump station ale!

  • Here in NC its http://www.hwy55burgers.com/big-a-challenge burger. Its almost 50 oz. of meat(6 patties/6 cheese slices)on a burger bun, with at least four toppings. If you can eat it and a side of fries and a 24 oz. soft drink in 30 mins or less it”s FREE.

  • Smoke Shack @ Shake Shack in NYC, It’s the best because of the smoked bacon. Bacon makes everything better. I like the cherry pepper relish too.

  • Shannon Clancy

    I’m disgusted at all these people picking fast food joints… for shame, people. For shame. JG Melons in New York City. Best burger, hands down.

  • Travis Bond

    My favorite burger is the Bacon and Bleu Cheese burger from Bistro 26, Erie, Pa!!!
    The reason it was so good was because it was so different to me, bacon, bleu cheese, and BBQ on a great piece of meat!

  • Primanti brothers in Pittsburgh! Everything in one samwich!

  • Zach Egolf

    The Royal Red Robin Burger from Red Robin. Something about the egg on top that really brings out the flavor of the ground beef!

  • Five Guys burger with cheese.

  • In Carmel Indiana you need to go to BUBs (Big Ugly Burgers). They have a one pound burger that is one pound of beef cooked weight (starts as 22oz of beef). They also have smaller half pound and quarter pound versions. Bison is also available.

  • Kevin Faaborg

    I would honestly say the best burger I have had so far is the ‘Bleu Ribbon” Burger from Red Robin. It has a kick from the onion with spicy mayo, but cooled down with a tang from the blue cheese. Last time I had it was in Pittsburgh many years ago, I can’t wait until one is built in FL! Make sure you get the Parmesan fries with it!

  • Nparikh27

    In philly, go to 500 degrees. Amazing fries as well. Love the hamburger buns they use.

  • Kyle Todoulakis

    San Diego, In-N-Out. 3×3. Can’t be beat w/o paying more than $8.

  • My favorite Burger is the Epic Burger with Bacon from well Epic Burger in Chicago. Bacon always wins.

  • Jason M

    Hartford, CT. The Hickory Burger from the Wood N Tap bar & grill (a local chain). Perfect combination of thick-cut bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and BBQ sauce on a juicy burger. Awesome.

  • Carl’s Jr Western Bacon cheeseburger is my all time fave. BBQ sauce + bacon + onion rings = heaven.

  • Oscar Gomez

    Best cheeseburger at subway express in Los Angeles

  • Andrew Stuart

    I really do think homemade burgers are the best. Get some angus beef and throw some chopped jalapenos in, and either toss it on the grill or the cast iron skillet. I can’t get enough, and they cost half as much as eating out. Best part: add whatever you want. Best place to eat out? I’d have to say burger bar in Las Vegas.

  • Michael Johnson

    Koppe Bridge in College Station, TX. And it’s not even close! I’d put Koppe Bridge at the top of the list of restaurants College Station visitors should eat at! http://goo.gl/ml0o9

    My favorite chain burger would have to be Five Guys.

  • If you make out to Iowa the Sac Cattle Company is it. Their mushroom and Swiss was rated best in iowa in 2010 and still is. Most flavorful burger ever and I cant stand mushroom…that says a lot!if u make it out ask for the local law enforcement office who loves android…I’ll buy your lunch and a cold one!!! http://www.midwestliving.com/travel/iowa/sac-county-cattle-company/

  • If your in Milwaukee, WI then you have to try a Copps Custard cheeseburger – absolutely awesome! Wisconsin = cheese+beef.

    You will never feel the same about 5 guys after a Copps burger.

  • Kewpie Burger in Racine, WI. It’s special because my dad always made it out to be a special place to go when I was a kid.

  • calculatorwatch

    Mmm hamburgers… My favorite place is probably the Dairy King in Empire, CO. It’s really out of the way but so worth it and they have great shakes too. For a more accessible hamburger I guess Five Guys or Larkburger would be my favorites

  • marbean

    I’m in Tacoma, WA. The best cheeseburger goes to D.O.A.–Dirty Oscar’s Annex–on 6th Ave. with their “Dead Elvis Burger”–1/2 pound patty topped with candied peppered bacon, fired banana, sunny side egg, peanut butter, and mayo on a brioche bun! Kellex and all you other D.Lifers must try this if you are in the South Sound!

  • NinjaHobo

    Classic burger from dicks in Spokane

  • Roman Kasal

    My first burger from The Habit here in Fullerton, CA was the charburger with extra ranch and bbq, quacamole and bacon with swiss cheese and packed with a slice of pineapple. It was heaven in burger form.

  • The house burger at Red Robin in Eugene, OR with the avocado. Super simple but simply fantastic!

  • there was this thing i like to call THE BURGER. I was on holiday on a small greek island called zakynthos. When I first arrived (tired as…. a rubber duck) i sat down in this little restaurant next to a pool. And then.. it came.. THE burger. Great bread, perfect tomatoes, onions that tasted sweet, a sauce that still is a mystery untill this day .. and there was meat. so much meat 😀 I felt like spongebob on his first krusty burger!

    Wayyyyyy to many people pandering about 5 guys and In and Out. Get real. Come to NYC. Head to Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn and go to “Burger on Smith”. Your face will melt. It’s the best burger I’ve ever had, and like you, I’m a burger guru.

  • rogue_5

    My first choice would be Original Tommy’s double chili cheeseburger, its the chili they put on it what makes it stands out here in Los Angeles.

  • The Awful Awful burger from The Little Nugget Casino in downtown Reno, NV. Half pound cheese burger with bacon, lettuce, tomato, onions and special sauce. It’s Awful good! If your ever in Reno I highly suggest

  • dontpanic

    Wolfnight’s Burger, Tel Aviv, Israel. Got there someday and found out I know one guy who works there. After I ordered a regular (but excellent as it is) burger, he added Bacon, Cheese and an Egg as a treat. This was bloody sinful and tasty as hell.

  • Remo

    Cheeseburger with extra cheese at sibylla in gothenburg. its just so good with all that cheese.

  • McDonalds, San Francisco, Double Cheeseburge, why? Dollar menu baby!

  • Well chances are you wont ever be in Simi Valley Ca but one of the best places to get a burger in my city is The Hat. They have a awesome pastrami burger that is just mouth watering. They also got other locations in Ca like Pasadena so you don’t necessarily have to come to my city to enjoy their awesome burgers lol.

  • Dude

    The Downriver burger from The Mitt restaurant in Mt. Clemens Michigan. Double patty, avocado, tomato, bacon, blue cheese, bistro sauce. Soooo goood!

  • TheDrunkenClam

    The best burger can be found at The Thurman Cafe in Columbus Ohio. Just a hop and a skip from The Ohio State University campus, the Thurman Cafe was featured on Man VS Food. The Thurman Burger is to die for. With all the fixins, and even ham. It’s extremely rich and delisious, and patties are hand crafted. If you’re feeling brave, take on the “Thurmanator”. Named from the bodybuilders who flock to the town during the Arnold Classic event. It is said that Schwarzenegger himself has enjoyed this beast of burger.

  • Cody Macks

    I live down in salt lake city and the bar called poplar downtown has a burger called the epic burger. One of the most amazing ever. Bacon… Bacon and more bacon. It’s not cheap but worth every penny.

  • Namrepus221

    Burgatory In Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. (http://www.burgatorybar.com/) The food is amazing. Just everything. The ingredients, the way it’s done, everything is just flawless. I very rarely have ever paid over $4.50 for a cheeseburger. But DAMN was it worth it this time

    I just have to tell you about shake shack. It is by far the best burger I have very had because it is all natural, well cooked and had a great sauce (Mayo ketchup and some other things) I get it on 86th and Lex in NYC. Go try it when you get the chance

  • KJ

    In-N-Out in Southern California! Classic double-double with animal style fries! The burgers taste so delicious. Fresh veggies, melted cheese, grilled onions,etc.Love it!

  • CapnShiner

    I am not aware of any mobile tech events that would bring you to AZ, Kellen, but if you come to Tempe(Phoenix area) there is a real hole-in-the-wall burger joint called The Chuck Box that is considered by many to be the best burger in town, if not the world. The place looks kind of dirty with kind of a western motif and bare wood everywhere and they only take cash but they don’t mess around when it comes to burgers. It’s a simple menu and they are good at what they do. It is also a dress-it-yourself place, so you don’t have to worry about orders getting messed up. There is another place I haven’t tried yet called Lobby’s that is supposed to be really good. They have a website: http://www.lobbysburgers.com.

    If you find yourself in Tucson, you have to go to Lindy’s on 4th. Their burgers are amazing and so are their cheese fries. Lindy’s was featured on Man vs Food for a reason. It’s a tiny place and it gets busy but it’s worth the wait. There is another burger joint in Tucson that has an excellent burger, waffle-cut sweet potato fries, and craft beers(bottles) called Monkeyburger. They get their buns from a local bakery and their beef from Harris Ranch. Their website is http://monkeyburgerrestaurant.com/

    Even if I don’t win the Nexus 7, I would still buy you a pint at Four Peaks(http://www.fourpeaks.com) if you ever come to town. (This offer applies only to Kellen, Tim, and Eric)

  • krnme

    the manly burger at umami… yum yum… beer-cheddar cheese, smoked salt-onion strings, bacon lardon…

  • David

    I’m from San Francisco. The best burger I had was at Farmstead in St Helena (Napa Area). It’s not a burger joint but man was that burger tasty. All the ingredients are fresh locally grown and organic. The beef was juicy, bread was fresh and every thing was cooked to a perfection. It was delicious.

  • brintonjay

    cant beat an in n out double cheeseburger “animal style.” I would build an in n out burger as an addition to my future house if i could. mmm.

  • Tony

    Nothing beats a homemade burger!

  • Nick Saulino

    My favorite burger is the Monster Burger from the Wellington Pub in Buffalo, NY. It’s the best because it’s a half pound burger sandwiched between two grilled cheese sandwiches!

  • I celebrated today with a double double animal style but being here in San Diego as well I’ve got to admit if I’ve got the time a cold beer and a burger at Slaters 50/50 is really tops.

  • Father’s Office in LA has the BEST burger! its just melts in your mouth!

  • Keith Johnson

    In Virginia its slim pickings. I’d have to go with Five Guys. If you see one while on the road, cut over three lanes and weave though oncoming traffic to get to it!

  • Soofdawg

    Cheeseburger All The Way from Five Guys, Hanover, MD, because it tastes homemade.

    We just got a Smashburger here in Ventura County, CA, and I gotta say their BBQ burger is pretty fantastic! Definitely my current favorite.

  • carluverdrm2004

    My favorite burger ever was in Concord Mills, North Carolina at Sticker Fingers. I can’t remember what it was called, but it was either a 1/3 or 1/2 pound of angus, with pulled barbecue on top of it, with cheese and tomatoes, served with fries. It was delicious, it was pretty hard to pay attention to my girlfriend over this sandwich.

    Kansas City, MO: Two best burgers that can take any burgers in the country. I am not kidding. (Make sure to order Medium rare!)

    1) Flea Market Burger from Westport Flea Market Bar & Grill. 2) American Kobe & Oscar from Blanc Burgers + Bottles.

    I tried 5 guys, In&Out and other burgers in lots of places but nothing can come close to these two above mentioned burgers. Period. I also tried 40$ burger from Daniel Boulud Brasserie but you are really paying for the price tag of Michelin star.

    Visit Kansas City for the best BBQ food in the entire country: Oklahoma Joe’s, Arthur Bryant’s. No other BBQ can even come close to what Kansas City offers! Sorry Texas you are not the best BBQ.

  • Ashley Horne

    Well Jim Bobs country Store has the best ones money can buy. Cooked using the same recipe since I was a kid. Theres just something about tradition that makes good burgers great.

  • Aaron

    The only burger served at Sparky’s in Hatch, New Mexico. Delicious.

  • Vyrlokar

    For me it’s the bacon cheeseburger with lettuce and tomato.

  • I live in Tempe, AZ. The best burger I’ve ever had is from this restaurant called The Chuck Box! They have the juciest burger ever, cooked on charcoal grill, along with best sides, such as beer-battered fried mushrooms, zucchini, fries, etc. I can eat the infamous “Big One” every day!

  • iSlackerz

    The Flaming Grill in Sac, CA makes a Kobe Bacon Bleu burger that is amazing. If your arteries can take it add some bacon bleu fries on the side.

    Another place to check out is Burgers & Brew in downtown. Fantastic Burgers.

  • Four Peaks Cheeseburger from Four Peaks Brewery in Tempe AZ. The burgers are always cooked to perfection every time we go to Four Peaks, can’t be beaten! I get mine with Cheddar, Lettuce, Tomato Mayo and of course… BACON!!!!

  • DMC

    You can never go wrong with In N Out, but lately I’ve been all about the 5 Guys in Santa Clara, CA.

  • Prime7

    King Kobe the Fourth from 26 Beach Street, so named because it’s a quarter pound of Kobe beef. Best burger I’ve ever had.

  • The best burger I’ve ever had (and I’m a burger aficionado) was from a hole in the wall joint right down the road from my house. They’d sell a hand packed half pounder with literally everything on it with a mound of fries and drink for 5 even. I would have paid 15 for sheer taste. Rebel House in West Monroe, LA

  • KillerAngel

    I’m partial to the bacon double cheeseburger at Crown Burgers in SLC. Not dripping with grease and has a very satisfying flavor.

  • peter hamilton

    The best burger I’ve ever had was in Los Angeles, at Lucky Devil on Hollywood Blvd. They call it the Diablo Burger. It’s a giant pile of fresh beef, peppers, and hot sauce on brioche.

  • Double All American from Ja Mars in Fort Dodge, Iowa. It’s a loaded monstrosity of goodness.

  • Best burger I ever had was a staff meal at the restaurant I used to work at. Lamb burger with sauteed onions and blue cheese on a toasted brioche bun. It was simple, flavorful, perfectly seasoned and juicy. What more could you ask for?

    I don’t actually order burgers, it’s almost always been something we cook at home on a summer day instead.

  • Redflea

    My favorite burgers are theones that I make with my family…my wife makes pickles, and condimentsthe patties, my son and I slice the potatoes (homemade potatoes chips!), the cheese, grab the buns, and get the fryer and grill ready and begin production outside on the patio.

    Then we bring the cooked cheeseburgers and chips in, my wife has the lettuce, tomatoes, grilled onions, condiments, and drinks ready. We assemble our personal creations…mine is lettuce, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and mayo…the burger is hot and juicy, fresh off the grill, with warm homemade potatoe chips on the side, and a ice-cold micro-brewery beer.

  • michael arazan

    My favorite burger was at The Original Busch Stadium home of the St.Louis Cardinals Baseball and Football Teams. On may 2nd 1982 i went to my first cardinals game with my grandfather and sat behind the visitors dugout. Cardinals vs Pirates. After i had my cheeseburger from the concessions we went back to our seats behind the dugout 1st row 1st 2 seats and the Pirates pitcher winked at me and rolled the ball across the top of the dugout into my lap. Then a lot of adults topple on top of me trying to get the baseball firmly secure in my lap. My first game with my grandfather, shared my first baseball game meal, an extremely cheesed out cheeseburger with the with that awesome cheese melted all over the wax paper wrapper with mustard only cause I was the only kid who hated ketchup on earth, and got my first baseball at my first game. Best Day Ever.

  • Rob

    Red Robin, Fairless Hills PA. Their Bonzai Burger is amazing. It’s marinated in teriyaki sauce, lettuce, tomato, cheese, onions, ketchup and the best part…It’s got pineapple on it!

    • CapnShiner

      I love Red Robin but if that’s the best burger you’ve had I feel sorry for you.

  • Cheeseburger from el cap in saint petersburg florida. The bun is soft and the meat is succulent. They will nickel and dime you on toppings though.

  • Trenton Workman

    Websters ( or “W”) in Clements California is drive-in style burger place, they use this garlic/ranch/mayo sauce that compliments the greasy beef so well its so good mmmm, oh and there are always chickens loitering around and I like to throw em a little bread haha.

  • In Atlanta the Vortex has the most amazing burgers ever. It was featured on man vs. Food. The Double Cornary bypass burger is legendary. (bacon fried egg grilled cheese and more all on one burger.) But all their burgers right down to the basics are thick and great. Sides have good options as well. You’ll always leave full.

  • Addison

    I absolutely love the mushroom swiss burger from Coppell Deli in Coppell, TX. Everything is cooked to perfection and their grill is really old so its got a lot of flavor cooked into it.

  • CampyGuy

    Kellex, there’s a bunch of great recommendations in the postings, but you’re so much closer to the best cheeseburger than you know. I’m just a few miles from you, in the Brooklyn neighborhood – I’m from NY (where some of the best steaks in the world are), and I’ve been around. While you may choose another cheeseburger, you’re missing out if you haven’t tried a cheeseburger at either the Antelope Cafe in Antelope OR (they’ll make it anyway you want) or the Pub Burger at Everybody’s Brewing in White Salmon WA or the Natural Sirloin Burger at Hood River’s 3 Rivers Grill (I like Cheddar and mushrooms on mine).

    They all have Imperial Stock Ranch beef in common, from just outside of Antelope. I discovered the beef at the Antelope Cafe during a bridge construction project I was managing several years ago. The product rivals any beef you’ll find in the world, and it’s produced only a few hours from your digs. You can get it at Elephant’s Deli on Burnside, but it’ll likely be flash-frozen before it’s shipped here to Portland.

    The Pub Burger or the made-to-order at the Antelope Cafe. I’d also nominate the Beaconsfield at Short’s Burger in Iowa City IA, not too far from my Grandma’s digs, as a close second. Both sources are grass-fed beef, as it should be. I think I’m heading to White Salmon tomorrow for a snack… 8-P

  • Josh

    The best burger I’ve ever had is in Yakima Washington (not far from you!) The Big Miner burger is the signature burger at the restaurant Miners. You will NOT regret the drive to get there. I guarantee it

  • Mike

    Devil’s Spit Burger from Famous Daves… It’s a Franchise but we definitely have one in Palmdale, California!

  • Texas Weiners II, GreenBrook, NJ – Fresh ground beef burgers that are mouth watering juicy and with Awesome Chili sauce, Mmm I guess I know where I am going today.

  • droidman101

    Slater’s 50/50 burger.
    Half beef, half bacon. All delicious.
    (I live in San Diego).

  • bboyzala

    Slater’s 50/50 half beef half bacon burger. I saw it on the Food Network one time and i decided to try it out. Good thing it was close by because that was one of the best burgers i’ve ever had. A patty made with half bacon??! who doesn’t like bacon??

  • Hunter Hambrick

    wendys baconnator with extra bacon. 12 slices of heaven. its like eating a petting zoo

  • Any fuddruckers ever. their burgers are just so damn tasty

    • CapnShiner

      The best part is that you dress it yourself and their veggies are always fresh. Get a shake or one of their giant brownies with it and you’ll struggle to walk out the door.

  • Anthony

    Cafe Cola in Azusa, Ca. 1/4 pound slider with provolone and Swiss cheese. Sun dried tomatoes. Jalapeno. Bacon. Avocado. Tabasco. Bbq Sauce. Accompanied by zombie fries with rib eye steak. Bbq sauce. Ranch. Tabasco. Bacon. Sun dried tomatoes. And wash it down with a diet coke

  • Jem

    Fargo. ND – DooLittles “Guac Burger” – guacamole burger that is large and in charge. I always add cheese and it is amazinggg.

    • CapnShiner

      I find it hard to believe that anyone in Fargo, ND knows what good guacamole is.

  • World.Wide.Wes

    george foreman IV from MVP’s in long beach. bacon, avo cheeseburger and a giant bag of fries. It’s awesome because bacon and it’s run out of a guy’s house!

  • bejahu

    The Humdinger from Al’s Humdinger in Hoquiam, WA. Grilled with a greasy onion taste nd fry sauce for the condiments. It’s heaven in a bun…

    • CapnShiner

      Fry sauce is not a known condiment in all parts of the country. I only know about it because my best friend from high school is from Idaho and I tried it when I went to his wedding(he moved back there). You may want to try explaining it for those not in the know. Best way I can describe it is to compare it to Red Robin’s campfire sauce.

  • In N Out for the win! At any of their many locations in Southern California!

  • Gary Karno

    Rounds Burgers are the best. The seasoning in the patty before it is grilled. The bum is amazing and all the ingredients you could wish for. The onion strings are the best also.

  • strows

    Royal Red Robin Burger from Red Robin in Cali,
    Comes with a fresh fried egg, applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and Mayo.
    Thought it was a little odd a buger with egg but it is BOMB!!!

  • fromo

    Tommy’s double chili cheese burger in LA.

  • Pauls st marks burger,located in st marks NYC (2nd avenue &8th street) the way they cook it is mouthwatering, tastes amazing. Easily amongst tje brst burgers NYC has to offer. Its huge, most, and just right (although the place is a hole in a wall, and the waitress is a major b**£=@)

  • Lacy Lewis

    A Three by Three animal style from in and out in california. Everything about the burger just tastes good and melts in your mouth and makes you want more.

  • My favorite burger is the double Bacon burger from Bengie’s restaurant in curler,ca. It is a family own restaurant and has been there since I could remember, they put their heart into every hamburger thee make

  • oliman37

    My mom’s home made burgers, back home in Chicago. Stop by for a bbq and see what I mean!

  • Dick’s burgers in Seattle, WA. a deluxe burger from there is always good.

  • Black Iron Burger Shop – a burger bar in the Lower East side, NYC. Their Bacon Cheeseburger with fried onions is incredibly delicious (especially with an IPA on top).

  • Alexmk

    Well Kellex if you want to go to California in n out is good. Amarillo Tx. Coyote bluff cafe burger from hell or green chilly burger are the best. Or in Portland check Little Big burger, Killer burger or go to Halvatia Tavern in Hillsboro. Or Violetta food truck.

  • muddigger03

    Red Robin Whiskey River BBQ burger

  • angermeans

    Definitely the famous Garlic Cheeseburger from The Cotton Bottom Inn in my hometown of Salt Lake City Utah. I’m not the biggest burger fan but this burger is to die for

  • Best burger: McMenamin’s garden burger on Scholl’s Ferry in Tigard, Oregon. It’s absolutely delicious and won’t make you gain five pounds.

    • CapnShiner

      I’ll have to remember that next time I visit my grandparents in Tigard.

  • A Mighty Mikes Triple Cheeses stick burger.

  • Absolute best burger I’ve had was at Rays Hell Burger in Arlington, VA. My favorite is the Au Poivre (meat encrusted with peppercorns) with some piranha sauce. Hell Burger proper gets crowded so if you want a sit-down experience or have a large group, Rays To The Third across the street has the burgers too!

  • James McCulloch

    Hodads, Ocean Beach in San Diego, CA. Bacon cheeseburger. Thick slab of bacon, patties so juicy… Damn, I’m going to have to go get one tomorrow.

  • Pastrami burger w/ slaw on top.

  • David Gonzalez

    Nothing like making your own burger at home. I prefer it that way, you can make it how ever you please and add w.e. you please and its cheaper. ;]

  • Ben Leonard

    best burger ever is the hang over burger. its got a fried egg and bacon on it. from brewmasters in downtown raleigh NC. its the perfect burger.

  • Hodad’s in San Diego has a great bacon burger with a patty of bacon. Excellent!

  • Jon Ellingson

    Tucson has a great restaurant called the hub and a incredible burger called the hub burger. It has pastrami, cheese & cole slaw

    • CapnShiner

      I grew up in Tucson and I’ve never been to The Hub. But have you been to Lindy’s on 4th or Monkeyburger?

  • All of my favorite burger places are on the West Coast because that’s where I’m from.

    Places you can skip:- Nicky Rottens in San Diego, CA- Father’s Office in Los Angeles, CA- Umami Burger in San Francisco, CA and on La Brea in Los Angeles, CA

    Honorable mentions:- Hodad’s in San Diego, CA- STACKED in Southern CA- The Apple Pan in Westwood, Los Angeles, CA- The Counter Burger in all over the place
    – The Library Alehouse in Santa Monica, CA

    Here are my top 4:

    4. The Neighborhood, Downtown San Diego, California – In my opinion this place is hugely underrated amongst the better known burger joints of downtown SD. The Spicy Cajun Rubbed Burger is my fave, but you can’t go wrong with the Neighborhood burger.
    3. Holstein’s in the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, NV – The Gold Standard has my two most favorite ingredients: Garlic Aioli and Bacon.
    2. In-N-Out – Lately I’ve been all about a Double-Single, Protein-style cooked medium-rare with whole grilled onions. But you can never really go wrong with the classic Double-Double. Really, this is just some comfort food.
    1. Umami Burger – If you’ve never been to an Umami Burger before, start out w/ either the Truffle Burger or the Port & Stilton. The mix of flavors and juicy-ness is like a burger orgasm in your mouth. The buns are soft, but firm enough to hold the burger’s shape. But my favorite burger is found at their “Urban” location on Sunset Blvd. & Cahuenga: The PASTRAMI MAMI is a specialty burger available on occasion at this location only. It has a juicy, thick-cut slab of the most tender pastrami you’ll ever have on top of a beef patty.

  • PudgyPanda

    Dicks in seattle is cheap but a good basic burger. Right in my price range

  • redline135

    City: SoCal
    The burgers I cook on my grill.
    The meat is flavored with Tabasco sauce mixed with blue cheese. Then cooked to medium.
    The burger is topped with a mix of caramelized onions with brown sugar. and more blue cheese crumbles. On a kaiser roll. ( you can add some special sauce – mayo mixed with Tabasco and a dash of cayenne pepper.)
    Ok, excuse me why I go make myself one 🙂

  • Chronon7364

    Fat Lady Hamburger. Fat Lady Restaurant, Oakland CA. The perfect burger, not too much added to it, just a delicious selection of meat, and a good choice of bread. Sometime great ingredients are all that’s needed.

  • Hand made and pressed 80/20 blend need that fat for flavor. Mix some roasted garlic in the burger mix fry on a grill top in a ball then flatten out to get a good crust do on both side cover with cheddar and American cheese put a dome on it with a little beef stock to melt cheese. Build it with lettuce tomato bacon and pickle on a nice crusty roll !!! Enjoy !!!


  • The Black Label Burger from the Minetta tavern in Manhattan’s Greenwhich village. it’s a selection of prime dry-aged beef cuts with caramelized onions and it’s amazing. each bite is an intense burst of flavor, the chefs are virtuosos.

  • Matt Holland

    St. Paul, MN – The Guys Big Bite juicy lucy at the Nook.

  • Cruiserdude

    Pawley’s Front Porch in Columbia, SC has by far the best burgers I’ve ever eaten! Beef isn’t even cut, much less ground, until after you order, and you can’t go wrong with any of the choices (though the Beaufort is definitely the best 🙂 ). Oh, and get there for supper on Tuesday before 7 and its half price!

    I’ll be waiting to read your impressions after you eat on Google+ from my future Nexus 7, now gimme!


  • Chubby melt from Bout’ Time in Salt Lake City. 3/4lbs patty, bacon, and the buns are two grilled cheese sandwich.

  • I live in NC and my favorite is still an In N Out 4×4.

  • Jerome Rhodes

    5 Guys 5ever!

  • I’m in Tucson, az. The best burger in town has to be Lindy’s on 4th. They have the fat bastard. Its a 1/3 pound Burger with a fried egg 2 kinds of cheese bacon lettuce onion mayo and tomato. And the bun is a sticky bun on both sides. But you could order it with a grilled cheese sandwich on both sides for the bun. Then you twoop about your meal.

    • CapnShiner

      I grew up in Tucson and I’ve only been to Lindy’s once. I got the Rusty Trombone and split an order of cheese fries with my friend. It was messy but delicious. The Fat Bastard was just too much for me. I think I would die of heart failure in my chair if I ate that.

  • BrionBrown

    Five guys bacon cheeseburger with jalepenos. Tastes so fresh and just the right amount of grease and spice. Add some cajun fries and you’re good to go

    Karma Burger from Mick’s Karma Bar. I was recently visiting Irvine, CA staying at the Embassy Suites near the airport. This sweet little burger joint was in an office park across the street. One of the best burgers I’ve had…ever. Check it out on yelp..

  • Dick’s Deluxe from Dick’s drive-In In Seattle. So yummy, especially after a night of bar-hopping!

  • Johnny’s Fillin Station in Orlando, Fl is the best burger in town. The combination of a patty grilled to perfection and made crispy by cooking the juices correctly with a lightly toasted bun is amazing. Good beer specials always make the burger taste better as well.

  • Five Guys double cheeseburger with ketchup, onions, bacon. I’m a man of simple taste.

  • Justin Howard

    My favorite burger is the “Wisconsin Burger” from Julie’s Family Restaurant in Superior WI. It’s a half pound burger with 5 different kinds of cheese on it with lettuce tomato onion and pickles. It is so awesome, it’s a mom and pop restaurant but they have the best burger for your money in the city of Superior WI.

  • Hands down, Bernies Burger Bus-Houston TX. Best, messiest GOURMET burger you’ll ever eat from a roach coach!

  • Cheeseburgers from the Wheel House in Waupaca, WI makes the best burgers in the united states hands down. I know this because I’m practically a burger connoisseur.

  • Homemade cheesburger. Why? Tweaked it to my own taste.

  • In-n-out is always a favorite of mine for fast food cheeseburger. That burger on the header looks good though. I want to reach and take a bite.

  • “The Garden State” at Burgatroyd. A food cart (the best food cart) at the Mississippi Station cart pod in Portland, OR. It’s made with custom seasoned country natural beef and has calabrian chili aioli, provolone, pickled onions and tomato.

  • I would say Five Guys since it was founded in local Arlington, but gonna go with Washington DC’s other big burger joint- BTS burgers & tap (in Foggy Bottom on like 23rd and Penn). They have their famous 6 buck chuck burgers which are ridiculously juicy and you have loads of topping options and other specialty gourmet burgers. They brew their own root beer too, and for someone who doesnt like root beer, it’s insane. Their sweet potato fries are to die for AND OMG THEIR SHAKES I can’t I need to go tomorrow. It’s a full experience there.

  • 3/4 lb cheeseburger with Taylor ham & fried onions from Harrigans in Montville, NJ. Instantly raises your cholesterol level by 50 pts, but soooo good

    Bison Burger from Burgerworks in Richmond, VA! You can customize it any way you want but it always ends up being delicious!

  • brandito

    Living in San Diego I get to enjoy a double double at In-N-Out just about any time.

  • Easy. A Swenson’s Half-Pounder (the secret ingredient in the beef is rumored to be brown sugar) with cheese (they use Velveeta,) and “everything” on it. (At Swenson’s, everything = mustard, pickles, and onions.) The perfect combination. In 1999, Forbes named it “America’s Best Cheeseburger.”

  • Jonathan Sigua

    The burger at The Spotted Pig in New York is one of the best I’ve had. In Portland though, check out Le Pigeon.

  • There was a generic waffle shack just off Western Blvd in Jacksonville NC that had a banging jumbo chili cheeseburger, this thing was the size of a pie pan, after a long night of supporting single mothers and the bourbon industry, it hit the spot. There wad also a little food cart outside the gate of Camp Hansen in Kin Town Okinawa Japan that had a teriyaki burger that was amazing.

  • I’ve had many but the Double double from In-n-Out in San Diego California is always one that I go back to when I’m in Cali. You can always expect the same great taste from in-n-out!

  • Matt Gondek

    At Primani Bros. In Pittsburgh I always get their bacon cheeseburger, which comes with fries stuffed in the sandwich too. That my friends is the American Dream

  • Artjoseph Caballero

    Dinos Burger in LA is great. The chicken they cook there uses a greek recipe but it’s cooked Mexican style. They cook the burgers on the same grill so they absorb some of that flavor. Just their standard hamburger is perfect to me. Could get cheese if you want. And the sauce/marinade they put on the fries… Oooh man. I want to go there right now.

    Slaters in OC is pretty good as well.They have 50/50 burgers. 50% bacon, 50% beef. I’ve tried the PB/J burger and the Supreme. Have to give the upper hand to the PB/J though.

  • My first In N Out cheeseburger, Long Beach CA. I’m a Utah boy. It was a revelation. Now we have ’em here, halleluja.

  • Danny R

    I live in Modesto Ca, and there is a hole in the wall burger joint called Webb’s burgers that would be passed up by 90% of people. But for those 10% we get to enjoy the nicest staff and Knockout hamburger. It hasAngus , onions, tomato, lettuce, avocado and fresh jalapenos for that know out. Found it by accident and always look forward to grabbing food from Webb’s. Damn almost forgot wanted to win a tablet LOL. Pick me and I’ll take a pic with staff and store!

  • Tyroniousdex

    The best burger in America comes from The Capital Grille. Prime beef ground with onions and smoked applewood bacon topped with Havarti cheese and a brioche bun. It is served along side truffle French fries. Absolutely amazing. I have had In and Out and the others, but they taste pedestrian to The Capital Grilles amazing burger.

    Hey Kellex. I am going to have to say that the best burger has to be the King’s deluxe at Whitey’s
    burger stand in Sacramento CA. The King’s deluxe is all fresh and just melts in you mouth.

  • Salbucks

    Hands down my favorite burger ever would be the ‘Black and Bleu’ from Rok Brgr in Fort Lauderdale, FL. First of all, their meat quality is beyond amazing, and you can tell it isn’t frozen junk served at most other restaurants. The bacon is pecan smoked, so it has an amazing aroma and flavor that adds to the burger. The caramelized onions and bleu cheese just put icing on the cake. I’ll usually mod it with a fried egg – the richness of the yoke with the rest of the ingredients make my mouth water.

  • Royal Red Robin burger at Red Robin in Roseburg, Oregon.

  • John Lane

    the one i made while drunk that one time

    the Juicy Lucy from the burger dive in Billings, MT. Lots of cheese inside the patty.

  • Five Guys double cheeseburger with onions, mustard and ketchup.. and the fries are amazing too!

  • Charles Eger

    I’d agree with 5 Guys on a national level, but for a local burger, the Crabby Patty from Sharkey’s in Blacksburg, VA is pretty good. Can’t go wrong with cajun crab dip!

  • In-n-out has the best burgers. Period. Love the one in L.A. right next to the airport.

They are still going strong and are still the same excellent quality way back when. Of course you would need fries to go with and the best drink to wash it all down was a Fresh Banana Malt! AWESOME Lou’s Burgers! GVeserat

  • Jeff Cauley

    I went out to CA on a business trip and fell in love with In & Out burgers while I was there. Other then that, a nice, home grilled cheese burger is my fav.

  • Adrian

    My favorite cheeseburger is the cheeseburger from In n Out! There are many In n Out’s here on the West Coast! It is the best because of the special spread In n Out uses in the cheeseburger!

  • Apple Pan in westwood, California has the best cheese hickory burgers I have ever tasted.

  • In n out burger from sunny socal!! I love it with grilled onions. The burgers are cooked fresh to order and not too expensive. Check it out.

    Lentil Burger, Sierra Nevada Brewery, Chico, Ca
    Consistently better than any burger (meat or veggie).

  • Cheeseburger Cafe in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cheeseburger and Fries for $5 and the best tasting burger ever. Every topping you could ever dream up available.

  • My favorite burger is definitely a 50-50 burger from Slater’s 50-50 in Yorba Linda, CA. Its a half ground beef, half ground bacon patty, with a fried egg, and avocado mash on the burger. Absolutely epic! It would be slightly better with a nexus 7 in my hand though haha

  • Sin City Burger in Grand Island, NE! Tremendous food there! If anyone ever stops in the middle of nowhere Nebraska, check Sin City out!

  • droyd4life

    Hmm.. I could devour almost anything right now, but the classic back yard burger from backyard burger would be the best thing right now… next to a free nexus 7!

  • The Juicy Lucy from the Burger Dive in Billings, MT. A 1 / 2 pound burger stuffed with warm gooy melted cheese. The burgers flavor cooks into the cheese. It’s close to godly.

This is a GREASY burger and has a old diner atmosphere with a jukebox and all the fixins. If your really hungry they have a triple and quad don as well.

  • Preston Richmond

    Love the 5 Guys and Fry’s double bacon burger in Portland. And love it because its jucy, just the way I like it.

  • The Hamlin Pub! Burger and beer night on mondays! Rochester Hills, MI. $5.95 Burger, seasoned fries and beer. You can add 8 different types of cheeze and the 1/3 to 1/2 burger is fantastic because it is made on the same grill that has been there for like 30 years! I get my burger medium with crumbled blue cheeze, heinz 57, pickles, lettuce and tomato. Just exquisite and you just cant beat the price.

    Magic Burger in Los Angeles, CA. A little hole in the wall place that serves you a chilli cheese burger with lettuce, tomato, pickles onions and bacon with home made fries and a shake that they encourage you to dip you burger in.

  • The buffalo burger at Empire Burger in Breckenridge, Colorado. It’s always cooked perfectly (which for buffalo can be difficult). I always make sure to go there during vacations up there.

  • SysWiz

    The Big Tom Burger w/Goop from Eastside Big Tom’s in Olympia, WA. They also have the best peanut butter and chocolate shake. GOOP 2012!

  • Jerry

    Slater’s 50/50 in San Diego has some awesome burgers. My favorite was the Ballpark Burger with the perfect balance of chili, cheese, and onions.

  • Dan Portal

    Nothing beats a Steamed Cheeseburger from Ted’s World Famous Restaurant in Meriden, CT.
    The burger patty is steamed in a special steamer made in Meriden as well. They even steam the cheddar cheese ’till it’s good and gooey and slap it on top of the patty and throw it on a kaiser roll. The best thing about Ted’s steamed cheeseburgers is that they use fresh never frozen ground beef and because the patty is steamed rather than grilled or pan-fried you taste the beef and that’s all no charcoal or oil.

    If your ever in the Central Connecticut area, you need to stop by Ted’s in Meriden and grab a Steamed Cheeseburger originally made in Meriden and one of the only places to get this Central Connecticut treat.

  • evltwn

    The Habit. Double Charburger. Best I’ve ever had. Better than In-N-Out.

  • Shake Shack Smoke Shack… nuff said.

  • For me, this was easy. Nothing, NOTHING has beaten the AUSSIE BURGER at the Irish Democrat in Cedar Rapids, IA. It’s a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg and peanut butter on top (under the bun). I’ve found other restaurants with similar offerings, but they never taste the same.

  • Dustin Perone

    The Heart Stopper, 2 patties with bacon and 3 cheeses stuffed in the middle, bacon grease fried onion rings cut thin, with a toasted pretzel bun. served with a Das Boot of Sam Adams Boston Lager. small home cooked place in orlando

  • Steve Swall

    I’m in San Diego. Two picks: In N Out and Slaters 50/50. At In N Out I usually get a three by three (three meat party’s and three pieces of cheese), and at Slaters 50/50 the original… Half ground beef and half ground bacon!

    • Long live the 8 x 8 and over =(

      Ever read about the 100% bacon burger my mouth waters just thinking about it.

      Mmmm Bacon

    • shane

      I’m in San Diego too and I only consider In N Out a quick fix for a burger. I also feel for people who think 5 guys and smash burger are the best as well. All those chains are decent, but all of you guys have to have local places that are better than that. If I were recommending Kellen a local burger, my personal preference would be in the following order.

      Rocky’s (Pacific Beach) super juicy back yard bbq style
      Hodad’s (Ocean Beach) crazy huge amazing bacon burger
      Crazee Burger (North Park) weird good options, kangaroo or gator burger?

      • Steve Swall

        I haven’t had the chance to try Hodad’s yet. The line is always too long. I heard that the shakes are pretty amazing.

        Crazee Burger is good too. They have an awesome happy hour. $5 turkey and beef burgers! The place is kinda dirty though.

    • droidman101

      Hodad’s is great too.

    • in nout ftw

  • fixxmyhead

    a veggie burger from burger king with lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup,and extra onions

  • Steve Merriam

    If you ever come in to Albuquerque, pick up a cheese burger from Blake’s Lotaburger. If you can handle a little bit spice throw some Green Chili on that mofo and you will be sinking your teeth into one of the best burgers ever!

  • As long as it is after 2am, the McGangBang can never do you wrong.

  • I can’t get enough of an In N Out Double Cheeseburger with grilled onions and animal style fries

  • Rech Vanny

    My favorite burger is one from my country, way beyond to the other side of the world – Philippines. The joint is called Jollibee. They have several branches here in Los Angeles. Don’t know about other states/town. It’s probably because I grew up eating their hamburger or just because the burgers are quite juicy. Get the Aloha burger with pineapple. Yummy!

  • Cop3land

    IN and OUT burger. 4×4. It is four patties, 4 pieces of cheese, their secret sauce, lettuce, tomato and a bun. SOOOOO GOOD. For the side you want to get ANIMAL FRIES!!! That means that your tray of fries comes topped with a mass of MELTY CHEESE, some grilled onions, and a big ladle of THOUSAND ISLAND DRESSING!!! Sooo Good!!

  • Forks Burger, Bass Lake California.

  • The Vortex’s Double Bypass Burger.

  • Village Whiskey in Philadelphia. Blue cheese, bacon, and avacado with a side of duck fat fries. Unreasonably expensive burger, but it is the best.

  • Caribbeancruzer

    Bacon, Blue Cheese and peppercorns!

  • engemasa

    My favorite burger is from a little bar & grill in Jackson, MI called West Point Lounge. It’s the Smokin’ Burger: Pepper-Jack cheese, and fresh sliced jalapenos… That’s it. It’s so simple but it’s so good. I usually add tomatoes, lettuce, ketchup, and mayo. With fries it’s still under 8 bucks!

  • Jordan Harvey

    Its called the Extravanganza Burger here in Orlando, Fl located on International drive. Its literally loaded with everything you could imagine: bacon, cheese, onions, mushrooms, egg to name a few. Its amazing.

  • Little Holland in Tacoma, WA – The best bacon cheeseburgers period. Toasted buns, grilled onions, secret sauce =)

    Pearl’s Deluxe Burger, in San Francisco. First time a burger ever made me say “this is the best burger i ever had”.

  • kaufkin

    2 five guys Jr. Cheeseburgers, Loaded. any 5 guys will do. failing that, find a good cart, have ’em put on celery salt, Pepper, and loads of sourcrout. (sp) sounds disgusting, but it works.

  • TankerTuff

    Any burger from Fat boys in Columbia, SC. why? Just listen to the name of the restaurant.

  • I like 5 guys, but there have been a few times that I’ve been to Beef O’Brady’s in Tampa, FL, and there burgers have blown me away. Especially when it’s dripping with BBQ sauce and Bacon. Bacon. That is all.

    Bacon had to be said twice.

  • The Sweonso’s gally boy! By far the best Cheese Burger ever. Every time i go to ohio i get 1-5 of them during my stay.

    Skrellex, you gotta check out Positively 4th Street next time you come to the east coast, namely Charlottesville…

  • dancenoahdance

    The burger barn, in Manvel Texas. The menu ranges from classics like the original barn burger to questionable ones such as The barn peanut burger. But the one that catches my eye every single time is the A-1 steak burger, grilled onions, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, mayo and of course, A-1 steak sauce.

  • Bison burger at Roam in San Francisco.

  • prttyboiii007

  • cm_barba

    the Go Chuck Yourself burger from Holy Chuck in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In taking the “Go Chuck Yourself Challege”, one must finish the six pattie six cheese triple bacon grilled cheese burger and a regular milkshake in under 6 minutes. If successful, your face goes up on the wall of fame. If not, it’s the wall of shame for you. If you beat the best time on the wall of fame, the owner pays for the meal!

  • Davros

    My favorite is a Fudruckers double with everything.

  • ramifications

    My favorite burger is the Met bar’s barbeque sauce, pepper jack cheese, and bacon burger with onion strings. Mmm, delicious!

    Thanks droid life!

  • You can’t go wrong with the 1/3 lb., 100% Angus ‘Semi-Serious’ option from the national chain Cheeburger Cheeburger…always perfectly cooked to order and (thanks to their ‘never frozen’ pledge it’s) an incredibly consistent burger no matter which of their approx. 70 locations you visit.

    I insist my burgers be served medium rare — yes, e. coli be damned; this is one restaurant that will happily sell you a thick and juicy, pink-centered hamburger patty — topped with Parmigiana cheese, plus a smattering of ketchup & pickles. Don’t forget a bag of ‘with-skin’ french fries.

  • maverick9611

    No 5 guys in Kalamazoo, but SmashBurger comes pretty damn close. Can’t really pinpoint what the smash sauce is except for delicious.

  • If you find yourself in Vegas, stop at one of the In-N-Out Burgers. Get a double-double “animal style”. Double mustard cooked beef patty with lettuce, tomato, pickle, sauce and grilled onions. One word, amazing.

    They also started a foundation for abused and neglected children. It’s always good to support businesses that give back to the community!

  • The Okie from Bill’s Jumbo Burgers in Tulsa, OK because “7 days without Bill’s makes one weak.”

  • It is absolutely Five Guys. I’ve been to several in NJ, DE, PA, and MD over the years, but the one on Concord Pike in Wilmington, DE (they have two in one city, those bastards!) is just the best of the best.

  • James Dennis

  • SubMatrix

    There’s a place here in Los Angeles called The Standing Room which makes an amazing burger, with gigantic size and amazing unique sauces…just look at this beast:


  • Bacon Cheeseburger, any cheese will do but Cheddar, or even better, Gouda. Cooked medium with an over-easy egg on top. Toppings don’t even matter at this point but I prefer plenty of Mayo!

  • melan26

    It wasn’t a burger for me; it was a reuben sandwich with kim chee inside. I loved it, I thought it was a weird combo but it was so good!

  • Rick

    The best burger I’ve ever had was “The Ranch Hand” with chipotle ketchup from the Twisted Root in Arlington, TX. Easily worth the 6-hour drive from where I live.

And their fries are freshly cut an deep-fried right there. Sooo good.

    Honestly, the last burger I have is always the best burger (if it was really good).
    The Truffle Burger at Umami Burger (had it in LA) is pretty amazing. Pair that with their cinnamon sprinkled sweet potato fries? You got a winner.

    The burgers at Vera’s Burger in Vancouver was also amazing at the time. Unfortunately, I can’t remember which one I tried (went twice in my five day vacation there).

    Dough Truck’s (food truck in the Bay Area) has amazing burgers. I refuse to eat it with glazed donuts but they have this burger with angus beef that’s stuffed with melty, gooey american cheese that gets better with every bite!

    And of course, a double-double from In&Out can do it for me too.

  • A double-double from In-N-Out. located in several states but the store I go to is in Oceanside, CA. That tender, juicy burger patty smothered with their “secret” sauce , grilled onions, lettuce and tomato simply melts in your mouth and beg for more.

    It was a PEPPERONI, PEPPERONCINO, pepper jack, cheddar, STUFFED.half pound beast served on a onion baked roll smothered with aged cheddar and caramelized vidalia onions. Honestly….you can’t get any better than that. It’s freaking amazing….

    My mouth it’s watering now…drooling all over the place….

      In other words people, if you want the best burger you ever had, come see me. I am the true burger king. Screw that, I’m the burger EMPEROR.
      Thinking about a ghost Chile stuffed burger smothered with gorgonzola for the brave spicy freaks out there…..Lol
