Post burger files
i love me some burgers. here's some of the most memorable burgers i've had.

post yours as well! even with no pictures!

in n out is my favorite burger. not the best i've tasted of course, but my favorite.
Image

tommy's is a close second.
ImageImageImage

my wife and i have traveled a bit, and we try to get the area's best burgers

in new york we had burger joint (best tasting burger i've had so far)
the meat is cooked perfect. the veggies and condiments work perfect. the buns are tasty.
ImageImageImage

in seattle we went to red mill burgers. great stuff! the sauce is delicious.
ImageImageImage

also in seattle we had lunchbox laboratory. a bit over done, not the meat, just everything.
not as good as it looks
ImageImageImageImage

now some local burgers i've found around my area

dave's giant burgers. my favorite local burger so far. the meat is seasoned perfectly, the two slices of american are melted just right, the produce is fresh and crisp and the bun is toasted just slightly. just an all around solidly good burger. not to mention the old school feel of the place. no plate, no fries, nothing but burgers, chips, shakes and pies.
ImageImageImageImage

monsoon burger. found this place to be interesting. the way they cook the meat, they place it on this revolving grill and place the patty on a certain section depending how you wanted your meat cooked. there is a do it yourself condiment bar. the buns are really toasted from the inside.
ImageImageImage

squeeze inn with their fried cheese is an experience. not a fan of everything else on the burger, but people swear by it.
Image

went to norman rose tavern, which is the it place at napa right now. the meat was huge, but once in your mouth it melted and felt airy, as if you had just bitten a much smaller burger. the taste was phenomenal and the bun was amazing.
Image

also been to tayler's refresher (now known as gott's roadside) and tried most of their burgers. i still cannot understand why people love it so much.

hope to be going to more burger places soon and post them up!

this burger is from awful awful in reno. it was a pretty damn good burger, cheap as hell too. the burger with 1 pound of fries was $6.50 or something.

the best burger ive had so far has to be from hodad's in san diego. hodad's kills all the other burgers that i have tried. i will take a picture of their burgers next time i go there

A few weeks ago I had a a burger with pancetta, pistou, arugula and fresh tomatoes and it was fucking amazing. One of the finest in San Jose of all places.

We are going back tomorrow so I'll try to 'double post' with a picture.

Every time we go up North to Vallejo to visit Nate's family we always make a pit stop here before we see them. Locals only, family run and been there for years. Inexpensive too.

T____T I want some now.

five guys burgers are just ok. their seasoned fries are worth repeat visits, though.

Phyllis' Giant Burgers - used to be my fav in San Rafael, still great though.


Joe's Cable Car Restaurant - Real good but a bit over priced.

what's the pink pickled looking spiral next to the burger? also, what's the sauce? was the bacon on top of the meat or cooked right in? i'm getting so hungry while staring at your photos and asking these questions.

the pink spirally thing are pickled onions... delicious!
bacon was placed on top of the meat... the second burger has it.
the sauce was for the fries, but i slathered some on my burger about half way through. it's red pepper feta dip, i think.

Been to Apple Pan. It's ok. Good Burger, but nothing to go crazy over or get written up in a magazine or anything.

One of the best burgers in the City? I might have to say at Lark Creek Steaks in Westfields in Union Square. Yes it's a chain, but they make a damn good burger. get yours with Avocado. Feeling like real slut, get it with bacon too. Nice big, really big steak fries too. crispy and fluffy inside.
