Fuddruckers is still around,  at least here in Texas.  Pretty good.

...

There's one in Boston as well.  The burger is OK, but the variety of fixin's is incredible!

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!

There a few Shake Shacks along the East Coast, and one here in Orlando. It was pretty good, but nothing special in my opinion. I'd sooner go to Five Guys (it's cheaper and closer for me).

Honestly, a lot of the "gourmet" burger places are really same-y to me. They're all good food, but its difficult for me to justify going to one over the other, so my choice would mostly be based on convenience.

McDonald's is a guilty pleasure for me, if only because there are so many of them and I can get my entire meal + drink for around $7.

OK, I looked up "adult milkshake". 

Yep, there seems to be alcohol involved.   :/

Personally, I like "kid" shakes.  We have a chain here called "Friendly's" who had a shake called "Awful, Awful" which was so thick the metal spoon stood up.  I think they renamed it a "Fribble".

I like the taste of McDonald's shakes, but they are so high in sodium (probably the thickener) that I can feel my blood pressure rise as it digests Amazed

Haha Friendly's!

I forgot about that place! I liked how you got a whole shake, plus what was left in the metal mixer cup.

I miss them!!! The stores in my area were closed down as part of the bankruptcy a few years back.

We used to have one adjacent to our local Pathmark supermarket (also gone).  My wife, being a good Brooklyn girl, was a die-hard Pathmark devotee and coupon clipper.  In the early days of our marriage, when food shopping was an evening out, we would go to Friendly's for dinner and a shake and sit there and clip/organize coupons (when they were paper!) before heading next door to Pathmark.

Fond memories!

Here in New Mexico, the green chile cheeseburger is so popular that 66 different restaurants are listed on the "Green Chile Cheeseburger Trail" :

The only thing I have to say about burgers:

If I go to a restaurant and the burger they make is too tall to fit in my mouth without taking apart, or it has to be held together with a skewer or a knife stabbed through a cutting board or some other artsy crap, then that restaurant sucks at making burgers.

You are more of the standard burger type of person I see:

If you really want a GREAT home-made Burger try this.. It works and they are delicious
Take your patties (don`t pack them too tight)
On each side of each patty - worchestershire sauce
                             Good Olive Oil        Rub in the two sauces
                             Sea Salt
                             Fresh Ground Pepper
                             Garlic Powder
                             Onion Powder
                             a little Fresh Rosemary
Rub everything in cover and let marinate for 24 hours
Grill them up the next day with a good bun and some sharp Cheddar.
You`ll never have better

The best burgers I've ever had:

1) Giant Burger in Berkeley (lived on these in college)

2) Carnival in Portland, OR

3) George's Giant Hamburgers (suburb of Portland)

Very sadly, all of these are now closed.  So I'm afraid to tell anyone what the next best burger place is. :cry:

The places near me that I find decent are Cheesecake Factory, Fuddruckers, and Red Robin.  But none of them hold a candle to Berkeley's Giant Burger.

The Red Eyed Mule in Marrietta Ga is fantastic. The Sloppy Slaw Burger is great.
