Re: Favorite Burger Place

I'm not sure it it's actually "good", but this place (very near me) is insane:

For good, yeah, I'll go with home cooking, grass-fed beef (mixed with a little ground buffalo), cheddar cheese . . . man, I'm getting hungry . . .

Re: Favorite Burger Place

Foreman grill, hamburger, spices, jack cheese, guacamole, tomato, red or romaine lettuce, red onion. Mmm mmm goodness. So good, I make two. Generally use whatever bread is available.

I stopped by there on the way back from a weekend camping trip. I didn't want to pass up the opportunity to sample the burger due to the place's reputation. However, since I was on a road trip back from a weekend of camping I opted not to try one of their novelty-sized (1lb and up) burgers).

I wasn't particularly impressed with my one and only meal there. If their regular-sized burger wasn't absolutely delicious, it makes me more reluctant to attempt their 3lb burger.

Re: Favorite Burger Place

I have learned to avoid chains. Though Culvers' has a good burger, it isn't the best I've ever had.

The best burgers are cooked outside over real charcoal.

If you are eating out, SMALL bars have better burgers than any resteraunt. Just make sure there is a real grill in there and the bartender cooks it himself. Small is key here though, many large bars have bad food (cooked elsewhere and often microwaved). You know it is good when the bartender grabs the ketchup bottle out of your hand because "If I wanted ketchup on your burger I would have put it on myself!"

Re: Favorite Burger Place

True, whenever my dad used to go the bar when I was in HS, he always brought me back a burger and it was bloody good.

Ditto that. I ate there exactly once, and . . . eh, it's a diner. The food was edible. I usually stick to breakfast, no matter what time of day; it's hard to screw up an omelette.

Its main advantage is that it's open 24 hours; not a lot of options at 3 a.m. out here in the far suburban sticks.

One of the bars I go to back home has one of the greatest "kitchens" I've ever seen. Next to the bar on the shelf is a toaster oven, where they reheat everything on the menu. Order wings? Well, he just heats up the frozen ones he bought from the grocery store. Cheese fries? Frozen fries and cheese whiz.

I love that place.
