evidence 1: a1 thick and hearty hamburguesa
Anything but Shake Shack
Revival St Paul gives it a run for it’s money imo but still an amazing burger.
My favorite burger right now is at Ikes in Spartanburg. Nothing special just tastes like how a burger should.
they do some elite wings too
cribbs or nu-way are my faves in town. dudley’s is pretty good too. small creepy place called Boss Pa’s in Cedar Springs is really greasy
we have a bunch of great wing places.
Had a Dudleys burger the other night. Pretty good but still prefer Ikes. Need to give nu-way a try. Hate The Stripclub got rid of Burger Friday.
i can never get to stripclub for lunch. ike’s fries make me mad fwiw.
The OG Holeman and Finch burger lived up to the hype.
Yeah I pass on their fries.
Gtfo w vortex. How can you enjoy your burger with all the cig smoke in the air?
why is a tree good? Why is the sunset good? Why are boobs good?
it just does
Georgia still lets people smoke in restaurants? In 2018?
'bout to blow your mind bud
One of the worst things about ATL imo. Otherwise great city to go out in.
The state whose motto is “Live Free or Die” and the state that is home to Tobacco Road have both managed to save diners from ruining their meals with cigarette smoke. The fight is over, rest of America. Just acknowledge it.
but i miss answering "smoking or non?" at every restaurant
What are you talking about? You can't smoke in bars unless the places in 21+ all the time and the bar actually allows it (most dont)
Most cities in Texas ban indoor smoking
I don't care how good or bad the ingredients are. Cooking and constructing the Burger are key in my book.
I can't believe we're 3 pages into the thread and no one has mentioned Red Robin. Everyone should be ashamed of themselves.
i think freshness, not necessarily the quality of the ground beef is the biggest factor, then it's beef:bun ratio. those are what i look for.
Fried Eggs don't work well with much. This trend of putting the Fried Egg on other foods is fucking disgusting.
For best hamburger? Nahhh. Their unlimited fries can only help so much.
Agreed, just because asians do it doesn't make it ok to do on other foods
Yeah. Gimme a good sesame seed bun and keep it simple.
There was a local place here you have never heard of that had the best burgers I have ever had, but they went out of buisness because I live around a bunch of old rich white people
I can't remember the last time I went to a restaurant that had smoking inside. It's effectively banned except for places that want to be 18+ at all times.
They’re saying “boo-ne”
Had a burger recently that was 1/3 beef, 1/3 boar, 1/3 chorizo. It was the most delicious thing of all time.
You haven’t lived until you’ve tried a human burger. Medium rare, of course.
Welp. Looks like I learned something new today.
This sounds v good
The 10 Highest Rated Burgers in the U.S.
By Leena Kollar, updated on October 24, 2018
Kalbi Burger from Corner Grille (California)
The owner of Corner Grille outside of Los Angeles has nearly 30 years experience in the culinary and restaurant industry. That should come as no surprise when you browse the menu.
The Korean tacos and BBQ sound quite delish but it's the burger selections that really impress. There's the Crazy Boy, loaded with pork cutlet, BBQ beef, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, shredded cabbage, tonkatsu sauce and special sauce.
There's the Chili Cheese Burger, made with beef patty, mixed cheese, chili, fried egg and special sauce. And then there's the crowd favorite — the Kalbi Burger. This masterpiece has Korean BBQ beef, pickled onions, shredded cabbage, spicy mayo and special sauce. Clearly, the special sauce that is used on the burgers does make them something special.

Avocado Burger from Hippo Burgers (Texas)
Hippo Burgers started in a small yellow shack back in 2014. Four years later, the burger joint is still pounding out its 1/2 lb. Angus beef creations at two different spots in Humble, Texas. Non-burger menu offerings include Hippo Chicken, the Hippo Mexican Hot Dog and the Hippo Chili Cheese Dog.
There are also a few tasty shakes and a variety of fries to choose from. But the real reason to visit is for the burgers. In particular, the Hippo Avocado Burger. It's got mayo, guacamole, grilled onions, tomatoes and white cheese.
It's like having a Cinco de Mayo party, right in your mouth. We'd love to be invited!
If you want to see what all the fuss is about, you'll find Hippo Burgers at these two Texas locations:

Humble, TX 77338
Wagyu Say?! Burger from Burgers and Things (Hawaii)
It's not like you need a reason to go to Hawaii. But just in case you're trying to convince someone else, let the Wagyu Say?! Burger be that reason. It's one of the items on the menu at Burgers and Things in Honolulu.
The Wagyu beef burger is braised in a mustard jus, topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions and then covered in horseradish sauce. It also comes with lettuce and tomatoes. And if you think that sounds good by itself, add a side of the Kim Chee Li Fries to really treat your taste buds.

Pioneer Burger from Ground (Tennessee)
This Tennessee restaurant is located just south of Nashville and specializes in burgers and sandwiches. Among its offerings are a bunless burger served with avocado, tomato and lettuce, a burger stuffed with pepper jack cheese and jalapenos, and a bacon mushroom Swiss burger.
But the real menu masterpiece is one of Ground's more simple burgers: the Pioneer Burger. It's about as classic as they come, made with lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, choice of cheese, mayo, mustard and ketchup. Cheese choices are American, Parmesan, Cheddar, Pepper Jack, Swiss, Provolone and Bleu Cheese. The restaurant also features a "design it your way" option that allows you to select your choice of burger or chicken sandwich, along with cheese and toppings.
All burgers are cooked medium well (unless otherwise requested) and come with your choice of fries, baked potato, sweet potato or Caesar salad. Oh, and if you order a drink, you take home a cool complimentary signature cup. You'll definitely want something to remember this place by. Well, besides the lingering flavor of pioneer perfection that you hope will never escape your mouth.

Bocado Burger Stack from Bocado (Georgia)
The rotating seasonal menu at Bocado makes it difficult to serve food that customers can come back for on a regular basis. But if you're lucky enough to find the Bocado Burger Stack on the menu, it's one of the most raved about in the nation and well worth trying. It comes with American cheese, pickles and fries.
While it may not sound fancy, there's something about it that's irresistible. The burger is generally available on the lunch menu but also makes appearances at dinner time. Both menus change often, depending on what local produce is available.
Since the Bocado Burger Stack seemingly doesn't require any produce to make, we're guessing you'll be able to find the customer favorite on the menu whenever you visit.

Atlanta, GA 30318
Emmy Burger from EMILY (NY)
Emily and Matt Hyland are the founders and co-owners of EMILY, which has locations in Brooklyn and West Village, New York. The restaurant is mostly a pizza joint, modeled after the couple's love of pizza that stemmed from their personal relationship prior to opening EMILY.
Both locations use wood burning ovens to make the pizzas but there is far more on the menu to enjoy. Case in point: the Emmy Burger. It's made from dry aged beef, Grafton cheddar, caramelized onion, cornichon and a special EMMY sauce, and then sandwiched between two pretzel buns and served with fries.
Enjoy The Emmy for lunch or dinner with a glass of wine, beer or a fruity cocktail. And if you're really impressed with your dining experience at EMILY, snag some swag with the restaurant's logo on it from the online shop. You can also recruit the team for private events or catering.
Find EMILY at these two spots:

Brooklyn, NY 11238
Bash-Style Burger from Lure Fishbar (NY)
New York's upscale Lure Fishbar offers fresh seafood, sushi and a rotating oyster bar. It's also one of the restaurants that serves one of the most highly-rated burgers in the U.S. You're probably wondering how a burger from a seafood restaurant made this list. All we can say is, don't knock it until you try it.
It's one of just two burgers on the menu (the other is a Grilled Tuna Burger) at Lure Fishbar, which means it has to be good. The "bash style" creation has bacon, onion jam and pickles. Its counterpart, the "lure style" burger, comes with the works and is served with onion rings. Beer, wine and cocktails are available to complement your meal.
And if you want to recreate the burger at home, Chef Josh Capon actually shares the recipe with Loews Hotels for anyone to try. But first, head to Lure Fishbar to get the real deal.

Mushroom Cheeseburger from Port of Call(Louisiana)
The Port of Call is a steakhouse located in the French Quarter in New Orleans, La. The restaurant was established in 1963 and today is known for its burgers and steaks. All of the 1/2 lb. burgers are ground fresh daily and come with a baked potato.
So, which one should you try? Well, there are really only two options: the hamburger or the mushroom burger, each with or without cheese. The one that's earned rave reviews is the Mushroom Burger. It comes with lettuce, tomatoes, onion and pickles on the side so you can enjoy it the way that you want to. Have it for lunch or dinner because the restaurant is open seven days a week for both. You don't need reservations and you can even bring the kids.
The only bad news about ordering the Mushroom Burger? If you want sour cream, cheddar cheese or mushrooms on your baked potato, it costs extra. And since that really has nothing to do with the burger itself, that means there's no bad news when it comes to ordering the burger.
Port of Call

New Orleans, LA 70116
Jucy Lucy from Matt's Bar (Minnesota)
Located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Matt's Bar & Grill started as a neighborhood burger joint in 1954. Founder Matt Bristol has received numerous awards and appeared in multiple food & travel publications and on television programs. His claim to fame from the restaurant? The Jucy Lucy.
It all started shortly after the eatery opened, when a customer asked for two hamburger patties with a slice of cheese in the middle. When he proclaimed, "That's one juicy Lucy!" the concept for the burger was born. The misspelling of the word "juicy" is intentional and is the barometer by which to measure whether or not you're eating the real deal.
Many restaurants have created variations of the burger but Matt's definitely gets credit as being the source of the original version.The secret to the Jucy Lucy is the molten hot cheese that fills the inside. Matt's Bar & Grill's motto is "Fear the Cheese," and when you order a Jucy Lucy, you'll understand why.

Pope Burger from The Pub on Passyunk East (Pennsylvania)
This Philadelphia restaurant has a traditional pub menu that features dishes like chicken fingers, nachos, grilled cheese, meatloaf and tacos. And while all of those foods will cure a major case of hunger, it's the Pope (which stands for Pub on Passyunk East) Burger that possesses most of the magic.
It's an eight ounce burger topped with cheddar cheese, fried tomato, grilled red onion and basil mayo. Choose from fries or a house salad on the side and rinse it all down with a cold beverage.
Passyunk East offers a fourteen draft beer system and bottled beer selection that can both be savored on the outdoor seating area. The restaurant is open seven days a week and serves brunch and dinner.

Tattooed Moose Burger from Tattooed Moose (South Carolina)
At Tattooed Moose, the burger by the same name gives you two 1/4 lb. patties topped with cheese. (Choose from American, Swiss, Smoked Cheddar, Bleu or Pimento.) Also on the burger are lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, garlic aioli and a special sauce- all on a toasted Kaiser roll.
Are you drooling yet? If not, you should know that the burger comes with a garlicky dill pickle and a sweet & spicy pickled green tomato. Add bacon or pork for a small charge if you want your burger even more loaded. Beer, wine and other beverages are available to accompany your meal.And if you somehow manage to have room for dessert once you've devoured your moosey feast, the restaurant offers featured desserts for customers.

Are we supposed to know what mpls is
It’s an acronym for “my posh luxurious suburb”
"My pussy looks shitty"
The wife and I ate at au cheval this weekend. Was only an hour or so wait.
It was really good, but American cheese is trash and ruins the burger. Everything else about it was good.
Also, their wait time is so long because their waiters are slow. We were done eating and ready to leave and didn't see our check for 30 minutes. Same thing happened at the pizza joint we went too. Guess it's a Chicago thing.
always first available
Nothing ruins a good burger like a dry, dense bun.
What's the best drink with a burger? IPA IMO
I’m not a soda drinker, but fuck me if root beer doesn’t hit the spot when I’m eating a burger.
Yeah, Co' Cola was my other thought
