I really enjoy In-N-Out fries, they somehow retain more of the potato's essential potatoness. Of course I might just like them because I like the holistic experience of the fries and the double double, not because of any innate qualities of the fries.

In other news, my town recently got a 5 Guys, I've been there twice since it's come in, and once a year or two ago when I was visiting Portland, and 66.7% of the times I've been to a 5 Guys they messed up my order somehow.

I just tried five guys for the first time. I don't think they're anything amazing, but it's better than the average fast food place. Burgers kind of remind me of wendy's. However, for the price, I'm not sure it's worth it. I prefer in-n-out's burgers, but five guy's fries are better, while still remaining in the "just ok" category (although I appreciate them leaving the skins on).

I'm prefer fat burger to five guys for both the burger and the fries.

I need to try Fatburger. There are several here in Las Vegas. They're considerably further away from my apartment than Five Guys (which is three blocks away) and In-N-Out (which is about seven or eight blocks away).

I don't know if it's just the one near my parent's place, but every time I've been to Five Guys, it's been more grease than meat on the burger. Also it seems to come only in "well done." I want my burgers pink.

If you're in Baltimore, Kisling's on the corner of Fleet and Chester. Easily the best burger I've eaten. Nothing fancy, not super big, just really really good. Get an order of Bay Fries too.

I don't mind a well done burger. It's a bit dry, but if you get a sauce as a topping it's not a big deal... What's that, they left the steak sauce off my burger? FFFFUUUU!

Five Guys is the best burger place by me. They just opened a new store and I bet the traffic to McD's and Burger King went down drastically since then. It's so freakin' good.

I tried Fatburger tonight. It was pretty darn good. I had a turkey burger and fat fries. They put relish on the burger, which I wasn't expecting and actually liked.

I finally went to Griddler's a few weeks back, for any Bostonians reading. It was alright, the selection of burgers made me think of uburger, though. Good milkshakes, but the great big seasoned waffle fries were the best part. Otherwise, the burgers were fairly middle-of-the-road. It won't be a go-to burger place for me like 5 Guys is when I make a point of traveling to Medford, or uburger, or bgood can be when I'm passing by them.

Has anyone tried DMK in chicago yet? It was on food network, and it apparently just opened.

LaserGuy wrote:The Works is probably the best in my part of the world. Elk burger with caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, horseradish, dijon sauce and gouda is my choice, but there's 60-odd different possible toppings, and some of them are pretty out there (peanut butter, strip bacon and fresh banana slices all on the same burger, for example).

I'm late, but holy crap, I went to elementary school with the son of the owner of the Works when there was only a single restaurant. I didn't know they were doing so well! Awesome.


I went to this place called Umami Burger in downtown San Francisco last week. Holy crap. The truffle burger. Unbelievable.

Yesterday I decided to sell my old Nintendo DS system and games to GameStop. Hadn't used it in nearly two years. Doubted it was ever going to get used again.

Found a nice restaurant located next door to them, called Ted's Montana Grill. A couple of coworkers had told me about this place, and how much awesomeness was cooked into their burgers, especially their bison burgers. I decided to try them out, and holymotherof$DEITY was it delicious. Had the bison burger with cheddar cheese. Their fries are nothing to snub at either: fresh-cut and parboiled (helps remove the starch) right there in the restaurant.

Pricey? Hell, yes. But OH-SO-FUCKING WORTH IT!

Ah, burgers! On saturday I went to what is probably my favourite burger place, Honest. It is a place of goodness. Their regular burger is great, but I now always get whatever special they have - and it's usually pretty crazy. This time, their special was a burger, coated in black pudding, topped with apple tempura, and a caper and tarragon mayonnaise. Sweet jesus it was good. The pudding added delicious saltiness, and the apple tempura and mayonnaise provided lots of moistness.

There's a chain around here(north Carolina) called Cook-Out that does a pretty good flame broiled handmade patty. They also rarely screw up orders which is good for my acid intolerant father. Off topic but they have a crazy huge selection of milkshakes, some odd but super good, like banana-pineapple. They are usually drive through only with two lines for cars.

There's a bar nearish me, Whit's End, that's got the best goddamn Bacon Cheeseburger you'll ever get for five bucks.

It's not the *best* burger I've had, but the best I had was consumed in the North Sea, so...

McDonalds is made cheap and actually really tasty but if were talking good and classy burgers then it would have to be Shake Shack or Five Guys.

We liked 'The Cheesecake Factory' in California. They do yummy burgers with all the trimmings you could wish for.

Been a while since I was last here.

This past Friday some coworkers and I went to T.G.I. Friday's for lunch. Had one of their Jack Daniels burgers. The burger was OK but that sauce? Yes, I'll take that shit via I.V. right here. I poured some on and then added ketchup and mustard. One of the coworkers had her daughter come with us, and she was fussing at me for "ruining" the burger with ketchup and mustard. Didn't matter; the JD sauce overpowered them.

Didn't care for the fries that much, though. I don't like my fries extra-crispy.

if any of you dip in to los angeles, visit tommy's burgers.

it has to be the one at: 2575 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA ‎

There are many, many impostors, and for good reason.
as they say, "if you don't see the shack, take it back!"

hands down, best burgers anyone makes in my area. also, best burgers served at 3 AM.

if you like chili burgers that is. you can order them without chili.

amusingly, its so full of chili, if you ask for extra, they take a ladle and dump it on top of the burger. served with a fork of course.

Apart from some poster in page 1 whose name I don't recall, has anyone else tried Back Yard Burgers?
