    Ah, from the In-N-Out unlisted secret menu. Very clever.

    While husband and I do love In-N-Out (maybe because we so seldom get to visit one), I find that I'm quite partial to Elevation Burger. Their buns are so-so, but it's one of two establishments I've eaten in, in the past 10 years, where the meat really tastes like meat. It's unbelievably flavorful, maybe because it's organic. Their olive oil fries are also wonderful. I've become an Elevation groupie. The other spot is a restaurant called Triptych in San Francisco... I had a pulled pork sandwich there last year that made me swoon.

    Many of my friends rave about Five Guys, but I'd rate them in the middle. Better than most fast food, but not as good as many restaurants.

    When I lived in NYC I used to love to eat at Hamburger Harry's in Midtown. Those were some delicious burgers.

    I'm a huge fan of the Triple Prime burger at Ruby Tuesday's. The bun is to die for on top of that. I don't like cheese on it though.

    Hard to go wrong with Five Guys. But, among the traditional fast-food chains, I like Sonic.

    Sonic does have a pretty good burger for fast food. I come from the land of Sonic where it was originated so I'm pretty partial.

    Nobby's in Chico, CA makes the best burger on the planet. Hell, maybe even the best burger in the solar system.

    Oh, almost forgot: my other half swears the best hamburger he's ever had in his life was from Mike's At The Crossroads in Cotati, CA - Sonoma County. Looks like most reviewers agree it's a pretty amazing burger. Mike used to toss you out of the joint if you asked for fries, but the new owners added them a couple of years ago.

    That's so funny, I was going to say Mike's is THE BEST burger hands down but figured no one would have been there it is so small and who ever heard of Cotati CA.

    But ya, if you're looking for the best burger, you gotta try Mike's. Then go across the street to Sift Cupcake Bar.

    When I lived in Seattle? The DeLuxe Bar and Grill - Seattle Restaurant

    My friends and I would go there on Wednesday nights usually, which is their "Burgerama". Buy a drink (alcoholic or non) and you get 95% of their burger menu for way cheaper. The quality of their french fries isn't quite what it was in my personal opinion but the Fuego burger (chipotle mayo, pepper jack cheese, avocado, grilled onion, and jalapeno) and BBQ burger (bbq sauce, smoked cheddar cheese, and these little fried onion bits) are freaking AWESOME. Besides, you can always substitute onion rings for the fries which is an excellent choice.

    The only fast food burger I can choke down is Whataburger. Started as a Texas chain but we even have them here in Florida!

    There are two burger shops that cater to the gourmet crowd where I reside. My current vice is a burger called Pepper Me Softly :tounge-in-cheek: that has havarti, green peppercorn sauce, cracked pepper, pickle, lettuce, fajita peppers and a few other odds and sods. They have awesome chips too!

    And don't forget a complimentary pint :smile:

    My home is wherever reality seems elastic and the
    chip's burgers for real meat (they have the best poppyseed buns)

    spiral diner for the vegan spiral burger with a nut patty (made from sunflower seeds, carrots, brown rice and spices)

    the classic burger style with a soy protein patty is decent too.
