If you find yourself in Piqua, OH.... just keep driving.
 
If you don't, Zender's "Really Good Buy "is a wonderful, and greasy, heart attack on a plate. Z's Bar has a nice one two but I prefer their pizza.

If you somehow end up in Winnipeg, MB, your best bet is probably a little place called VJ's, right in downtown. Burgers are pretty damn good, and they're sort of part of the identity of the city.

Here in Cork, Ireland we have a few.
 
I'd recommend Lennox's on the Bandon Road or Looney's in Mayfield.
 
Seriously good chips, too.

The lack of Southern California related posts is saddening.  I want suggestions, dammit.

Gotta remember, In-n-Out is one of the best burgers you can buy from a chain. And it's only in Vegas, and CA. Actually, we have 2 up here in Reno, and I'm pretty sure thats it...are there any in AZ?

If you're in the LA CA area, PM me and I'll cook you a great burger with grilled onions, madeira mushrooms, pepper jack cheese and some home made garlic aioli.

I'm gonna have to try Frankie and Benny's one time. Seriously, there's one like 15 minutes drive from my house. And a Nando's just down my street!
 
I have ashamed myself by not visiting these places.

If you're ever in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, you must check out Peter's Drive-In on 16th AVE.

True enough, however both Pat's and Geno's were tourist garbage when I had them. All about Jim's on South Street, pure grease and amazingness in food form.

you gotta stay out of the typical spots in philly. the best cheese steaks are from steve's, fruscos, chinks, gaetanos, etc. none of those famous places

No shit.  It's after 10, and now i'm thinking about driving to the store to get meat or getting a fast food burger. "
It's nearly 3am, and I'm thinking about venturing out somewhere...anywhere...

If you're in the Charleston, South Carolina area - hit up Fleet's Landing downtown. Their pimento cheeseburger is divine.

If you're in Madison, Wisconsin, head down to the capitol square and find a restaurant called The Old Fashioned.  Find this on the menu, order it, eat it, and let your eyes roll back into your head:

The Old Fashioned House Burger
grilled over a live fire and topped with fried onions, Bavaria's hickory-smoked bacon, aged Cheddar, 
garlic sauce and a soft-cooked egg on a buttered and toasted roll..........................................................$8.95

I dunno? The ChickenBurger? I've never been there, but I've heard good things from friends.

" If you're anywhere in BC, head to the nearest White Spot immediately! That place makes breakfast, lunch, and dinner (including burgers) like a motherfucker.  It's literally the best restaurant in the world. "
the food there is filling and its not that expensive too.  have u checked out Vera's burgers? "
I've never heard of it. Is that another BC-only restaurant? "
yeah its great.  they have that burger joint in north van, cambie street and ubc.  if youre in one of those areas u should go check it out! "
Aww yeah.  Every time I'm in Vanny I gotta head to Vera's. My mom used to live right around the corner from the one in North Van, now she's just over on the other side of Granville, so it's still walking distance.


If you're ever in Regina, Saskatchewan, you're probably gonna have to go to Burger Baron.  Their mushroom burger with bacon and swiss definitely drops a bomb on it!  BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

@H_U_R_D: Not far from there (in Lakewood) is Buckeye Beer Engine which makes some delicious burgers with a lot of unusual toping combos.  Also, they come with a fried pickle.  Highly recommended.
#122 Posted by tropico89 (40 posts) -

Definitely agree with 5 guys being amomg the best bugers in my town.
#123 Posted by tracerace11 (289 posts) -

IDK if they have the best burgers in Florence, AL.,  but Montagu's has amazing burgers and philly cheese steak sandwiches.  I go there over fast food anyday, because they are down the street, and I have drinks at home!

#124 Posted by Bumpton (449 posts) -


There's a 5 Guys that just moved in down the street from me, but I've yet to try it. According to this thread, I'm making a huge mistake! I apologize and I'll correct it immediately.

 

Until I do that though and if you're in Houston, TX, go check out The Itty Bitty Burger Barn. It's a-mazing.

#125 Posted by myketuna (1725 posts) -

Here in my town, I'd say Billy Bob's Burgers. Little joint has some baller burgers.

#126 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

Seattle has a lot of great places, Red Mill is fantastic, Dicks are great (and shakes, come on, who doesn't love shakes???), 5 Guys, and plenty of other places. I'd say Dicks because the meal is over all the best, but Red Mill best for burgers.

In both the Buffalo and the Rochester Regions of NYS There's this semi-local chain of pubs called MacGregors. In addition to having a fantastic beer list (I don't particularly care for beer but I'm still impressed by the sheer quantity of local brews) they have their take on the most awesome burger ever, http://cheeseandburger.com/havana

#131 Posted by Rothbart (356 posts) -

Here in Rome, I'd have to say that the best burgers you can get would either be at the Jewish deli Barilli 66 or at the Chicken Hut. Not exactly traditional American, but it's good when in it's own way.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh man, I just clicked on the Havana....I shouldn't have. That thing looks outstanding. I actually have a friend studying pre-med in Rochester, me thinks its time I pay her a visit!

My house, As i make burgers how I would want them served. Multiple patties, multiple types of cheese, The leanest beef available mixed with some Fatty pork to add that extra grease and flavor. Season the shit outta it with my special blend. I'm hungry. Or Uncle Dave's if your near kitsap county in Western Washington. Not the best I have had but they are the only place thats not a chain that gives 2 fucks about what you want and not how much money they can get from ya.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries, no question. I can't think of a single good non-chain burger joint in my area. But Five Guys has some of the best burgers I've ever had.

In N' Out > 5 Guys.

5 guys is good...but In N' Out trumps all burger chains. Incredible food and value. Fries cut right there in front of you. Everything is super clean. Great service.

If you're ever in Nacka in Swedish, go check out Sjökrogen. They have some fantastic burgers.

#136 Posted by thebatmobile (983 posts) -

If you're in Lund, Sweden, and want amazing burgers you should visit Viggos Restaurant and Bar.

The Atlas cafe in Comox BC, makes a mean burger.

Get to Bath, try a Schwartz burger. Remains the best burger I have ever eaten.

My kitchen. I actually don't know of any good non-fastfood burger joints in Petaluma. I haven't actively looked though.

#140 Posted by BoG (5191 posts) -

Well, in Salt Lake, you have options. The Training Table is a local chain that is really good, though not my absolute favorite. Another is Salt City Burger Co., which I really like because, in addition to making great burgers, you can pretty much put anything you like on it. The best is this place called Hires Big H, which I just really like. They have great root beer.

I see someone chimed in from Rocky River, but let me chime in for greater Cleveland. Cleveland is the home of Iron Chef Michael Symon, who I think just won the South Beach Food and Wine festival burger competition for the 3rd year running. He's opened up B-Spots in 3 suburbs in Westlake, Woodmere, and Strongsville, with a 4th coming to the Horseshoe casino when that opens downtown, and a satelite at Quicken Loans arena. The burgers are fantastic. My personal favorite is the Fat Doug(beef, pastrami, swiss, slaw and stadium mustard. My wife favors the Lola burger(beef, bacon, fried egg, cheddar and mayo), or the shroomage(beef, a giant portabella, blue cheese, grilled onions, and the house's steak sauce). Don't forget sides though. I swear by the Lola fries and Siracha wings. And remember to wash it down with a vanilla bean apple pie bacon shake.

Ok if you are in Frederick, MD and have to eat a burger, don't give in to the pressure to go to the Five Guys, go either to Beef 'n Buns 'n Paradise or Freez King. Both aren't chains, and serve rather amazing burgers. Freez King is a long time ice cream joint, but closed a couple years back and re-opened as a burger n shake joint. Still good. Beef 'n Buns 'n Paradise used to be known as "Cheesburger in Paradise" but Buffet is such a dick he went around suing all the mom and pop joints trying to make a dollar (see the irony, both ways I do) that they had to change the name. Order a Frenny Burger w Fries and a shake, or a Double Frenny Burger if you want to die (with fries and shake) and enjoy!

Yo dawg, if you're in Toronto the best berger is at mah pad!!!

Olympia, WA. Big Tom's drive in near Ralph's Thriftway on the eastside, almost to Lacey. Get a Big Tom Double with extra G.O.O.P. Fries are shit, but shakes are great with real fruit.

If you're ever in Dublin, Captain Americas does some crazy big burgers. But if you want more traditional chipper type burgers then Leo Burdocks is the place to go!

I honestly can't tell you. I don't eat burgers.

#149 Posted by Renahzor (994 posts) -

Albuquerque NM, Bob's Burgers is a good place, get a #1 Ranchero Burger with red or green and cheese, chili cheese fries to match, and a bottle of Tums. Taco burger tuesdays is also an acceptable choice from Bob's

Other acceptable places are Blake's (Green Chile & Cheese lotta combo), 5 guys cause its good everywhere, Lumpy's, or Little Red Hamburger Hut.
