Kellers Drive In  is on the list.  So it's not completely without merit.

I would recommend Kuma's Corner in Chicago, excellent little burger joint with entrees named after heavy metal bands. Just tried it this past weekend. Also, three in NYC alone CNN? Really?

I'm going into Manhattan tonight for a little side work, I'm tempted to try the English muffin burger at Billy's for dinner.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: Kellers Drive In  is on the list.  So it's not completely without merit.


I used to live a little over a mile from the Keller's on Northwest Highway..

You could always tell when the seasons changed from spring to summer, when the fat, ugly, marginally-toothed waitresses gave way to the not-so-fat, somewhat less-than-ugly, more-toothed waitresses..

Truly, it's one place you definitely just go for the food, and not the scenery.

It's also cool to see some guy in a suit, sitting in his SL500, chowing down on a burger next to the construction worker that somehow manages to eat and smoke, and drink a Keystone tallboy wrapped in a napkin, and do it all at the same time, without ever removing the cig from his lips.

There's a reason editors use headlines like "Top 10" and "Ten Best" for subjective topics like food and movies and music, subby, and it's precisely because it may not be what you like.

70% chuck 30% sirloin, 1 egg 1 packet french onion soup mix. Mix together and cook to medium. Top with a good soft baby swiss and fresh mushrooms. Serve on a toasted bun. Dip in ketchup each bite. Was that so hard?
 
2013-05-29 06:50:21 PM  
It's not that hard to make a good burger, but somehow every national chain has managed to fark it up. Even decent burgers like Hardee's and Whataburger don't compare to your local burger stand.

That said, Cook Out in NC and parts of VA really captures that great burger you get at a weekend barbecue. Anything more complicated than that just puts me off. I'm sure I'll find something similar wherever I visit, but it's definitely not Shake Shack or Five Guys. You're out, sorry. Finish cooking the farking thing, five guys.
 
2013-05-29 07:05:33 PM  
Don't really get the love for Shake Shack.  Best burger in NYC is Minetta Tavern, IMHO.

Not sure if I can even agree with his basic premise that the burger has to be salted, 4 oz. and on "squishy" bread (wtf is squishy bread? White bread?)

2013-05-29 07:12:39 PM  
Bah...I travel the states and world and have sampled numerous burgers. A 10 best list simply doesn't realistically exist...I just say "one of the best" because it's subjective and relative.


Kinda like comparing tits...they're all good ones.

Kuma's is a good burger.

There are lots of good burgers in Chicago. Within a well-struck golf shot of my place you can eat at Dukes, Fatty's Burgers & More, The Peasantry, Kuma's Too, and Michael Diveresy's and get exceptional burgers.

But I'm partial to Edzo's for griddle burgers (mustard, onions, and Swiss cheese) and Taylor Street fries (soaked in beef jus and tossed with giardinera).

I don't know if there were the same links for everyone but there is another link on that page of the 25 best burgers in the country and there is only one burger on both lists. What farking idiot at that website links to an "article" that completely contradicts the one we are reading? I realize there is probably some algorithm that finds similar articles and links them but shouldn't someone oversee and override that? It's just silly.

I use about the same recipe, but with toasted onion powder instead of the mix, plus a pinch of fresh ground cumin.

I'm convinced that pretty much every city and town has atleast one place that knows how to do a burger right.  It's too simple.  Pay more for better quality of beef and the other ingredients.  So the fact the guy can find a single restaurant here and there with a good burger... well, BFD.

What is more impressive is the idea that a (regional or national) chain can put out a consistently good burger at a decent price.  That's more amazing.

"mixing" the ground beef destroys the burger. the more you work the ground beef with your hands, the more your burger is going to resemble a hockey puck. that does sound like it would be pretty good to coat the burger with before you slapped it on a griddle though.

I've never had a 'good' burger at a chain. Five Guys included.

Five guys cooks their burgers well done. They even have a sign saying so.
Want medium or medium rare? Tough shiat.

Best 3 chain burgers:

1) Sour Dough Jack n the Box

2) In n Out double patty (better with cheese)

3) Fuddruckers (any of their burgers)

I don't eat out fast food all that often, but I enjoy In-N-Out burgers. Take one home and serve with fries and have some Sir Kensington's gourmet scooping Ketchup on both. Very good. No trolling.

I don't actually think Kuma's burgers are all that good.  Their burgers are all about the other crap they put on the burgers.  The patty itself is pretty meh, and you wait forever to get it (although perhaps Kuma's Too has changed that slightly).  I agree Edzo's is damn good for the griddle burger, and for the fancier burger it's hard to beat Owen & Engine (house-ground blend of short rib, brisket and chuck, sauteed onions, on a house-baked potato bun).

Have you tried adding worcestershire sauce to your recipe? If not, give it a shot, it adds a nice flavor to it.
