Mentalpatient87: Wow, I thought I'd get responses more along the line of "where the fark is Evansville?"

I don't see what everyone likes about Ritzy's, Culver's burgers are indeed awful, Steak and Shake is ass, we don't have a Five Guys or Major Munch. Burger options are limited to Hardee's and... that's about it.

I'd also kill a much more important man for a Dunkin Donuts in this hole...


Actually, there is a Five Guys now, on the East Side off the Lloyd, near Hobby Lobby- I'd say they beat the tar out of Culver's.

/I'd go there more often, but anytime I'm in town I get taken to Sutler's

I'd like to nominate Panera Bread. But then again, I have a bread fetish.

In and out burger is meh. Ted's gourmet bison burgers >>> In-n-Out.

For steak joints, Outback? Really? No. Ruth's Cris or Morton's.

For seafood, I'm going with Bonefish Grill.

Strange to say, I actually had good hummus at CPK.

Lucky for me I live in the Northeast so I can generally avoid chains.

Cheesecake Factory is good, Panera Bread is my kids' favorite right now, and I love the cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster. Haven't tried Five Guys yet, but they just opened not too far from where I live.

Oh, and if in south Florida, try LaSpada's for subs. You'll never go back to Subway again.

TravelingFreakshow: The Melting Pot is awesome, if you go there "just" for dessert. You've been warnedto spend a metric farkload of cash on melted cheese in a pot.

Stopped reading after "we're starting to expect things like organic milk on kiddie menus and sea salt on fries".

Burgers ? Five Guys (baconny goodness) and In-N-Out,Whataburger,mmm-hmm.But against the Greek places around here,like Pete's and The Clock,or The Beacon ? No contest "Jumbo Cheese,all-the-way,half & half". You guys ought to get out more.

Bojangles-greasy biscuits all day long ! It's BO time !
Zaxby's-love me some Zax.
Good Eats Grill-man,that's a big fried steak !Indian Summer Soup FTW.
Paradise Bakery-Mmmm-good start to the morning cuz they ain't got no Bo in Scottsdale AZ.
Cheddars-good stuff..
Try Barbara Jeans on the coast SC/GA. (St. Simons,Ponte Vedra,Beaufort)

I'll have to try it. Culver's sucks.

And yeah, I loves me some Panera Bread. A little pricey, but the food is worth it.

Outback ins't anything to write to anyone about. But if you go, get the Mad Max Burger, and ask for it "Mel Done" - I think my friend and I were the only ones there that thought that was funny.

Ever time we went there.

The best restaurant burger I've ever had was at Joe's Crab Shack. Seriously. I have no doubt it had everything to do with the chef and nothing to do with the restaurant. And I've eaten at Apple Pan.

/the best burger I've ever had was one I made. And the second best. And the third best....

Burrito Gallery downtown has the full restaurant experience if you're willing to cross the ditch.

HempHead: HappyLittleTree: Chipotle is delicious. The rest I can live without, but no one puts Chipotle in the corner.

I generally get the following there: Burrito bowl, white rice with black beans, steak, hot salsa and corn, sour cream and cheese. I grab 2 lemons and drench the bowl. If I am at home, I add a few drops of Dave's Insanity hot sauce. Yum!

Chipolte is opening up a chain of inexpensive Chinese places to compete with Pei Wei.

Because they discovered how well rice works as an inexpensive filler. Chipotle sucks ass.

Lorelle: Much better than In-N-Out, and no Bible verses on the burger wrappers or soda cups, either.

[blogging.la image 441x330]


I don't think the burgers are actually better than In-N-Out. But I do love me some Tommy's.

I avoid at least half from the list as they are just plain to noisy. For some reason that I can't fathom management seem to think that customers patronize there restaurant for the audio 'entertainment' and crank up the volume to be sure that everyone hears it whether they want to or not causing people to yell across a table to be heard. What a great atmosphere for business lunches and migraines.

This is why we put up with the rain.

Also, Schlotzsky's is much better than anything at Jason's.

Their burgers always disappoint me. Maybe I order the wrong thing. The shakes and seasonal items are always delicious, though.

Try the pepper bacon cheeseburger. Tillamook cheddar and real thick-cut bacon. The Halibut sandwich is also great for a change of pace. It's not particularly healthy but once in a while . . .

BV's good, but drive over to NE Sandy and try this out.

Near as I can tell, that's the best burger in Portland. Freakin' delicious, unpretentious, and if you don't want bacon you have to order it special.

I can only hope these guys are a chain one day! Big Wheel Burgers (new window) Also Canadian so most of this list is impossible accomplish.
