What's the best Burger you've ever had?

Build it / grill it / fry it yourself?

Your favorite place?

Something special about the way it's made or adorned?

I'm REALLY liking the burger on a jalapeno sourdough bun with pepperjack cheese, and thick crispy bacon.

I have sent Mrs. CP out in search of some jalapeno sourdough buns so we can try this at home! :yummy:

We once made some bison burgers that I topped with marinated portobello mushrooms. Yummy.

Five Guys. I'll even say it's better than In-N-Out.

(waits for West Coast to flip out)

The Mirror Pond burger from the Bend Burger Company. It has Swiss Cheese, Portobella Mushroom and I ex the grilled onions for bacon. It's topped with mayo and Bend Burger sauce. :yummy:

No way! (that's my flip out) :teeth:


However, I will say that their soda machine is AMAZING! I go there for that alone...


That being said...

In-N-Out is probably still my one of my top burgers for a chain.

Of course the real winner, IMO, is a place called Hodad's here in San Diego. The bacon cheeseburger is my favorite of all time. Still haven't had a burger come close to it, IMO. :teeth:

Oddly enough, mine is a drug store in Troy, Alabama called 'Byrd's Drugs'. They're famous for their chicken salad - which I'll try someday when they run out of burgers! :yummy:

A Burger King double bacon cheese burger. I don't exactly choose burgers when I can get something better at a place that has better food available.

"Best burger ever" is a bit tough, but it's amazing what two (or three, if you're ambitious) different meat patties can do for a home-cooked burger, e.g., beef patty + chicken patty + salmon patty*.

Also, though it wouldn't seem to be, diced celery is a tasty topping for a burger.

*Bacon is, of course, assumed.

I've never been to In-n-Out, as I've never been to California. If I ever go, it's high on the list.

Smashburger (http://smashburger.com/).... My favorite burger there is the Avocado Club Burger (usually listed as a chicken sandwich but you can get it as a burger), though their other burgers are all good too. (My Mom had a Mushroom Swiss and she said it was the best version of that burger she'd ever come across.) And, oh my gobbles!, the Smashfries are so good. SO GOOD. Mmmmm!

Seriously, just thinking about this place is making my mouth water.

I like them better than Five Guys. Five Guys burgers are ok, but EXTREMELY messy and greasy, and I intensely dislike their fries. I think I've been to an In-and-Out twice? But it was years ago and I can't remember much. What I do remember is feeling totally ambivalent about their burgers so... *shrugs*

No fast food burger ought to ever be included in a list of "best burgers." That's like saying Taco Bell makes the best Mexican food.

Five Guys just has a ridiculously high number of options for toppings so I like to experiment.

It would be bad if you had a peanut allergy, though...

I reiterate that this thread should've been closed after Five Guys was mentioned, because that is the correct answer.

Actually, it was in Bellevue, not far from the military base IIRC.

I was stationed there in 1988-89!! I got kicked out of that Runza one night when we were sloppy drunk... :lol:

I still remember their commercials. Bow bow bow!!

The Westport Flea Market in Kansas City has the best burger I've ever had. If you ever go, bring cash - they don't take cards.

I saw an episode of Undercover Boss last week that had the CEO of Fat Daddy's. He was a convicted felon who got suckered into a real estate scam by his lawyers and spent 14 months in jail. Was a very good episode.
