If you happen to find yourself in Reno, NV, make sure you check out The Wolf Den literally across the street from the University of Nevada, Reno. Also, just north a few blocks is a little bar called Archie's that also has a kick ass burger, and a nifty 50s era diner where you can grab an amazing shake or malt. 
Where are your best burger locales?

If you find yourself in Redlands, CA, there's a place of Redlands Blvd. that makes a mean chili burger. Freakin messy as hell. Other than that, I always go to Carls Jr for the Big Carl.

If you're in Seattle, Dick's Drive-In is pretty fantastic. 
But if you happen to be in Mt. Vernon, Washington, The Net Drive In has the best burgers known to man.

@oliver: Where in Leeds is that? Mah Moods is pretty great for fast food burgers, though. 
Newbury, Berks, UK, a little join called Rio's. Down a tiny alleyway, but open until about midnight, and a huge selection.

Here in Sweden, go to any Sibylla and you'll get the most perfectly smeariest and fatast burgers you'll ever eat. And that in a very, very good way.

Is that the place on cap hill with the awesome fries? Was ages ago I was in Seattle but I remember those fries and as I recall on the same street was a place called Charlie's (or something like that) that had pretty tasty burgers.

@oliver: Wish I'd known that last year when I lived right by Vue Kirkstall. If it's worth a three mile cross-city walk, I may consider it though. Yeah, The MahMoods near the uni is great. Taste better than Burger KIng/Mc Donalds and cheaper too.

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.

I'm really excited for the Dick's coming to Edmonds just a couple miles from my house. They're ultimately pretty cheap shit though. It's all about their fries and shakes. I actually used to operate the machine that pressed all of their burger patties at MacDonald Meat Company down in SODO. 
My favorite burgers in Seattle are at Lunchbox Laboratory in Ballard on 15th Ave. So good, it's my avatar. Red Mill Burgers' Blue Cheese Bacon is pretty great too, slightly cheaper than LL, and their onion rings are uniquely delicious.

Five Guys just opened in my area, I'm pretty impressed. I like their burgers a bit more than similar chains like Fat Burger. And the amount of fries they throw in the bag is crazy.

In Glasgow, it's probably ketchup on Ashton lane. They offer a varied selection of pretty chunky burgers as well as a challenge burger with the opportunity to get your picture on the wall of fame. I suggest checking out the Uni while your at it, since your essentially on University avenue.

A grocery store, I've never had a hamburger at a resteraunt as good as one you  make at home.  Probably because we have excellent beef in central Nebraska.

If you are anywhere along the Wasatch Front, I suggest you eat at JCWs. Very good burgers there, especially the Hickory Bacon Burger. However, I'm sure there are other places that are good, but I just finished two hours of homework, so don't expect much out of me right now.

I like 5 Guys a lot, but at least where I am it's over 6 bucks for a burger, 3 for fries and 2 for a drink. That's a little rich for my blood, so I stick to Duchess.

Don't know, but I can tell you where the best hot dog is. That'd be Superdawg if you don't want a chain, or Portillo's if you're okay with chain restaurants. Chicago!

If you're in Calgary, AB, make sure to check out Boogie's Burgers in the Northwest of the city, just outside downtown. By far the best, and they also have a bunch of classic arcade machines. I dare you to try and beat my Ms. Pac-Man score.

If you go to Malmö in Sweden then there is a burger resturant that's called Tusen & 2 (Thousand & 2). They have over 30 kind of burgers (regular, chicken and vegetarian). They are thick and juicy. Want your burger drenched in BBQ or Jack Daniels sauce? They have a burger for that! Want to try something really spicy? They have 3-4 kinds of those. Want a Elvis burger with peanutbutter and stuff? They got that too! It's quite insane how many different types of burgers they serve. You can get a regular cheese and bacon burger with red onions but also some crazy contraption with luxury cheese, honey or awesome sauces or glaze! The french fries are quite nice and chunky too. Can't say good enough stuff about this place! 
Bergsgatan 6 in Malmö is the place to go! ^^

When I was younger, my dad and I would go to comic shops in Seattle and we'd always stop at Dick's on the way back. It was awesome. I have a friend that loooooves Red Mill Burgers on Phinney.
(I haven't had a burger in years, IDK what the kids like these days)

Mmmm Top Notch in Chicago, it is located on the south side of the city in Beverly. It is an old Greasy Spoon type joint, but if you want a little slice of heaven order a Chocolate Malt, they make them so think you need a spoon to get through it for the first few minutes, with a King burger and fries. Easily the best burger and fries i have ever eaten.

There's lots of good spots to get a burger in New York City, but the place most people (and me) would point you towards is Shake Shack at Madison Square Park. You'll want to get at least two after waiting on that line, preferably doubles at that. Mmmmm.
