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!!

Agree re: Whataburger. Great choice when in Texas. Always made to order and very good.

If you want a wide choice of toppings for your burger, In-N-Out will absolutely be a disappointment. Ditto if you like your burger on something other than a basic sponge-dough bun. Bun, patty, onion, lettuce, pickles, tomato, and sauce. The only "official" menu option is to add cheese or another patty. They do have their not-so-secret "secret menu", but that still doesn't add that much variety.

On the other hand, if you do want a "classic" burger, In-N-Out is probably as good as you're going to get from a fast foot establishment.

Here in the SF bay area we ave a very good small chain called The Counter.

I visited one of them with my daughter in Pasadena -- it was very good, but my daughter said she chose it more for the shake menu than the burgers.  Two other places around there that I like are:

and

https://slaters5050.com/

Slater's is really good!!

Closer to home, we have a couple of SmashBurgers that I enjoy

Five Guys for a big sloppy burger ("all the way") and their fries;
Red Robin for sheer variety
There used to be a place called Fuddrucker's which i dearly loved.  They even had non-traditional meats (ostrich, alligator)

Good times!

there's maybe more than one Fuddrucker's here in San Antonio. One in Lubbock also.

no non-traditional meats now, as far as I know.

got too pricey for me to consider. probably $10 for a small burger combo

I think there need to be two separate categories for burgers-

Fast food (typically smaller weight)

and

Not-fast food, maybe gourmet? Which are typically larger, though not always.

They can also be separated in the same way by price.

I don't judge fast food burgers by gourmet burger standards. Apples and oranges.

I hold fast food to the same standards because sometimes the wait is just as long. Idea! :(

But probably much cheaper.  Clever

My current favorite gourmet burger (from The Tripel a few miles from me) is $15, plus more for fries and beer.

My favorite fast food burger (from Five Guys) is $8, and even with fries and a drink is below $15. In N Out is much cheaper, as is McDonalds.

This thread makes it very difficult to get through an evening living in a town where Dairy Queen is the fanciest place open past 8PM.

Unless that deal includes someone to cook them for me, I am unfortunately not inclined...

Funny thing is.... burgers are incredibly easy to make at home. Yet very few people make them as much as they will east them out. Maybe a picnic or special occasion with a group, compared to regular far away from home. And for what? $15 for a half pound of beef? Maybe? We talking about a filet here? Nice ribeye?


Cause otherwise... Very easy to play with. Last time I cooked burgers at home, 1/3 grass fed 90%, 1/3 buffalo 90%, and 1/3 ground lamb... Bit of salt and pepper... nice and juicy... much cheaper and better than then 10+ dollar burgers around.

If you're paying $10+ for a burger, just go try to make one at home. Very simple, probably much cheaper, and often better... Just gotta learn not to overcook the suckers and you're golden.

For the full experience, you should go to the Original Original Tommy's over in downtown LA.
Heck, go right now. They never close.

I'm super lucky.  My local grocer sells a good amount of skirt steak, and they sell the ground trimmings to me on request for $7 a pound.  Luscious.
