recently had what was decidedly the best burger I have ever had. It was a product of the Burgatory restaurant, a chain of restaurants in the Pittsburgh area. anyone who is able to try this place out needs to ASAP. They also have great adult milkshakes....

Probably around three times bigger than the regular one :D
Many think that milkshakes are just for kids, so maybe they just made one for adults  Don't know

If i saw "adult milkshake" on a menu, i would assume it had vodka or something in it. Here we call it a "Toblerone" drink.

It can be good if you've never had one!
But only a step or so above McD's,  that's all.

While visiting Disneyland, we went to the "fancy" restaurant one night.  On the menu was a $26 burger made from the most expensive cuts of the beef.  I'd been expecting to have a steak, but I couldn't pass it up, and it was indeed the very best burger I have ever had.

Overrated!  Just a decent fast-food burger with a manufactured / perpetuated image of their coolness. 

But don't tell that to the afficionados / addicts who line up for them.    Way cool

A difficult mine field to navigate is the sudden proliferation of upscale burger restaurants.  Some of them are tremendously disappointing.  Here in the SF bay area we ave a very good small chain called The Counter.

In n Out is good, but not the "best" at anything except brand recognition. Good fries too.

Five Guys is the best chain burger, though I have been served some duds in the last couple years. Hands down the best fast food fries, though.

As you may assume, I eat a lot of burgers from a lot of places... There's some good stuff out there! Just don't overcook it.

In N Out has one of the best burgers in my opinion.  Much better than 5 Guys.  Of the places I've been, my first thought for a good fast food burger is SmashBurger.

In N Out has absolutely crappy fries.  Taste is ok but eating experience is terrible.

But why have a burger when I can have chicken from Raising Canes? Eeek!

I do think Wendy's burgers don't get enough credit.

It is seriously good.

Agreed. They make good burgers, but I have a hard time going there because they always find a way to screw up my order.

I love a good burger.  I'm frequently disappointed.  In 'n Out is okay (just okay).  Five Guys is okay but ridiculously overpriced.

Nobody, but NOBODY can beat Nick's Hamburgers in Brookings, South Dakota.  Remember the Olympic Diner sketch on SNL?  "Cheeseburger, Pepsi, chips"?  This is the place.

They don't have any pictures of their food on their own site. A quick search turned up this image from Nick's:



Looks pretty disappointing to me. Is the patty secretly unbelievable and saving the meal from cheez and wonderbread buns? I want to believe that a place like Nicks is serving up the best burgers in the world and looks usually are deceiving. But... that just looks like nostalgia to me.


The Crave place in the Springs serves burgers that look like this:







And they taste better than they look.

Chain in NYC called Shake Shack... now one at the Mall of America here in the Twin Cities - the best burger I have ever had.  They have a special "shack sauce" but it just tastes like butter, and it is the most wonderful thing on a burger I have ever tasted.

It is a little pricey, but well worth it.  Good!

My go-to is Whataburger! 

IF I want to spend some money,  it'll be Twisted Root in Plano TX.

Or if I'm in El Paso,  it's Roscos!!

Nick's burgers are wonderful.  Just trust me.  You eat them like potato chips, one after another.  Buy 'em by the bag!

Sorry, but those pictures you posted just look like glop.  No thanks.
