  • World's Best Burger!

    All Wimpy approved!

    One dish that translates into every language known to mankind. And probably a few alien one's too!

    The United States might have a lock on traditional hamburgers, but restaurants around the world, from Stockholm, Sweden, to Santiago, Chile, are cooking delicious versions.

    While I love a good burger, I hate it when they drip all over your hands or fall apart as you eat them.

      Seems everyone is trying to out do the other and charging us for the privilege of their supposed better creations. Gimme the local burger from the diner, greasy spoon or hole-in-the-wall any day. Those are burgers, real burgers.

        we've had an explosion of kicked up burger joints using ground wagyu/kobe-style beef on brioche buns with a side of truffle fries, etc. they don't bat an eyelash charging 20-30 for a burger. the burger scene is way over crowded in So Cal, my retail broker friends tell me landlords put the kibosh on leasing space to burger stores. I sense they're past their peak and will die off and loose momentum like the 'chipotle' pizza phenomena (blaze, pieology, 800 degrees et al). that said I'm with johnny, the simpler the better.

          My wife make some of the best burgers we've had: good sirloin meat, salt, pepper and onions. Add L/T. Ketchup would kill the taste of the burner. Damn good.

              Any Shake Shack near you? To me, they are the best 'fast food' burgers.

              There's a Bobby Flay's Burger Palace near me. Also very good and a close 2nd to Shake Shack.

                there are now two shake shacks in So Cal. notice how long it took them to open out here, not a coincidence since the competition is stiff. it would be like bringing a califonia pizza concept to Noo yawk.

                One of my clients is Danny's attorney and I know it was a corporate decision not to initially expand past the Mississippi. Interestingly, Shake Shake opened the year of The Great Recession and was successful beyond their wildest dreams.

                I'm not a fast food burger guy so none of these rank on my list. I would say mine, made at home, simple with chopped onion mixed into the chopped meat, Kaiser roll, cheese of your choice, condiments of your choice, and a great IPA is my first choice. After that I really like Slater's 50/50 out here in CA and I suspect our own Kenny Golden must make a great burger.

              Can you prepare burgers in that or just smoked steaks, turkeys, etc? I am tempted to a get a small one...

              I don't come here for burger threads, but since I had one yesterday:

              Steakburgers from Brennans market
              Fresh sesame kaiser rolls from Clausens bakery
              Slice of Hooks 2 yr old Cheddar
              V. light spread of Dusseldorf mustard from Brennans
              Teapoon Heinz sweet pickle relish
              Two thin slices of tomato
              Leaf lettuce.

              Grill to taste - preferably medium rare.

              You can't get these in New York or California. ;->

                In my home town we have a old style dinner the guy who runs it does 800 burgers on a slow day and 1400 on busy day he is in his 70s worked and owned the place his whole life. Harmony Lunch all pork burger may not be the worlds best but it has history. Good burger and a good milkshake they also have home made pie . Some times that is all you need in life. watching them put a 5 gallon bucket of onions on the grill at one end and burgers on the other end . Life does not have to be complicated

                  since posting my fav burger joint has gone on the market for sale only 1/5 of a acre and old building for one and a quarter Million they serve 800 burgers a day with a shake less than ten dollars. How long to get a return on your money.

                  Never understood the restaurant trade the guy or gal who owns a restaurant is in a room full of waiters cooks and food and the first person to starve to death.

                In lieu of a nice outdoors grille, I kinda like making my burgers on a George Foreman grill. Can get both sides and juicy in the middle. At least for those of us who like their burgers medium rare!

                  for the best burgers i'm a cast iron skillet type of guy. i like grilling when mesquite charcoal is involved but not with burgers, it tends to dry them out. med rare is right!

                  There's that Pittsburgh style for steaks that works for burgers (though we did it long before they had to assign a name to everything). Get a really hot fire and sear the outside sealing the juices in. For me, there's nothing like a burger cooked on a grill. As a boy, we'd use dried apple wood to cook burgers.

                I've only gone to two on the list, Keller's and Blacow. For me its all about the meat. These two ace it albeit I am more partial to Angus than Wagyu finding that Angus has the better texture. Wagyu's mouth feel is too silky. I too think that simpler is better. As far as fast food burgers go, Shake Shack. No question.
