Seeing as how Hamburgers are very popular on this site, How about we each list the very best Burger Joints we've ever been to. and if you feel a particular franchise of a main chain deserves recognition, go ahead. I'll start the Ball. This'll be a great thread for people who eventually visit your city (and love Burgers eh!) Please also list exactly where in the town it is (especially if there's more than one and one of them is particularly better than others). Please let's not turn this into a McDonald's vs Burger King debate :)

Quebec City, QC. Canada

- Chez Victor          [ Saint-Jean street ]
- Le Pub                 [ Laval University Campus ]
- Ashton                 [1st Avenue]
- Café Cosmos    [Grande-Allée]

Pittsburgh, PA:
Atrias Bar and Grill
   BBQ Bacon Burger - 5/5
   Award Winning Cheddar Burger - 5/5
   Bleu Cheese Burger - 5/5

If possible, go to the original location in Mt. Lebanon.  The food is actually better, and it's located next to the best hobby shop in the world.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen, think it's only in the UK, can't beat the wild boar burger they sell there.

In Wisconsin, the best fast-food burger is at Culver's.  They call them ButterBurgers, and they beat anything else around for the speed and the price.  They started here but are steadily growing and have franchises in many states now.

I also like Dave & Buster's, even though I have to go to Illinois for one.  Assuming you're gonna play the games anyway (yes you are) then you get the Eat & Play combo times 2, and you get a one-pound double cheeseburger (with fries) for $4.  It's not the best burger ever, but I'd consider it above-average and you can't beat the price.

Harvey's (Angus Burger). Holy jumpin'.

Well, the best places to eat a burger:

Meers (When I lived in Oklahoma, it was always a real treat to come eat here. They have some GOOOD burgers)

Wingers (Cajun Burger OMFG)

My House (My dad can make a mean burger)

T.G.I Fridays (been a while since I've eaten here, but I remember they had some good stuff)

Burger King (I'm eating a Whopper with Bacon and Cheese right now as I speak,freaken sweet, but to be eaten in moderation.)

Mcdonalds (2 Cheeseburgers combo, so compact, that I can eat both burgers and be satisfyed without feeling too full)

What-A-Burger (Don't remember anything about this place...besides the fact that I used to go there quite a bit,must mean it was good)

Wendys (Same as What-A-Burger)

Little known fact

You can ask the Double Cheeseburger at McDonald's to be made ''Like a Mac''

The people behind the counter know what this means: they add lettuce and put Big Mac sauce instead of ketchup/mustard which makes it really a Big Mac without a bun in the middle.

#34 Posted by khisanth (23 posts) -

BK Double Whopper with Cheese
McDonalds Quarter Pounder with Cheese

Otherwise the nicest burger I have ever had was an organic rump steak hamburger from the Talbot Hotel in Wexford, Ireland !

Wendys, Checkers/Rallys

I like those smokehouse bacon burgers at Chilis

#36 Posted by JustinNotJason (421 posts) -

I'm not really picky but I like
Wendy's Bacon-nator

and Bennigan's used to make good burgers but they're going out of business; well their company is bankrupt and most restaurants are folding so it's imminent.

#37 Posted by lordofultima (6204 posts) -

Rally's, Brayz, Hardees

#38 Posted by bigbinner (4 posts) -

I live in Michigan and the best fast food burgers are Culvers and Checkers. The best chain restaurant burgers are Chilis and Branns

#39 Posted by Gunde (25 posts) -

Best fast-food type hamburgers have to be from Max, a Swedish chain. Their Frisco-burger is really good, also very good is Texas Burger in Kungshallen, Stockholm.

But my true favourite is Valhallagrillen, a local joint that is just too good.

#40 Posted by lord_canti (1503 posts) -

theres a place down the road from me called fantastic kabab house.  it makes the best burgers ever :D

#41 Posted by Coolarman (655 posts) -

Red Robin's gourmet burger and their whiskey river burger

#42 Posted by OGCartman (4354 posts) -

Arbies!

#43 Posted by Gunnarson (7 posts) -

Five Guys all the way. You get a burger the size of a freaking softball, and all toppings are free (except cheese and bacon, I think). Plus all the free peanuts you can eat. Don't even bother ordering fries.

For a sit-down place, Red Robin serves pretty good burgers. I like their Hawaiian one.

Here is Oklahoma City there used to be a burger place called Wiggee's. The two old people who ran the place were jerks to some of the customers, but their burgers were amazing. They also had this crazy mayonnaise that was to die for.

IN-N-out   and  burger king

#46 Posted by dQuarters (178 posts) -
