What Restaurant Chain Makes the Best Burger (Read 423 times)

    If three locations qualifies as a chain, my vote is for Blue Sky. There are two here, and one (maybe two?) in Lubbock. They make their own buns, and they serve battered & fried green chile strips. Yum!

      Other then at local cafes, I never order burgers anywhere except fast food restaurants.  My favorites are Sonic and Wendy's.

       

      I think Sonic's burgers are kinda bad, but I get the occasional craving for a Sonic #1.  That's the one with mayo.

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

         

        Yet you are telling me to drive 500 miles to get a Culvers burger.

         

        Yeah, I was gonna ask about that.  I like Culvers.  I will bike three miles for one.  I don't think they have a veggie burger.

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

          Culver's does a veggie burger although it is nothing special.

            Can we talk about poutine now?

             

            Never!!

              Well in that case I would throw in Hopdaddy. Weird fancy burgers (fits the Austin stereotype) but they are pretty good.

                Veggie burger...nothing special. Thanks, Captain Obvious.

                 

                BTW: FourBurgers in Boston. Local grass-fed organic beef (or a wild salmon burger if you prefer), local brews. Only 2 locations but it's awesome. Boston Common.

                  Some folks out there do make great veggie burgers...

                    I like Checkers best with Five Guys a close second.  Five Guys win with the fries.

                     

                    Never had an In n Out Burger.

                        Is elk veggie?

                         

                        The whole veggie burger thing escapes me.  Vegetables are wonderful in their own right.  Cramming them into a product created with meat in mind seems almost a waste.

                          Veggie burgers are just a convenience. If I am out with my fam and we stop at some random fast food restaurant, the veggie burger means I can eat with them. They also happen to taste good (in some cases, but certainly not all). Are they a meat substitute? Naw. But they make life easier.

                            My wife and I went to Smashburgers once. Our burgers were half beef and half salt. We both have a fairly big taste for salt, but these burgers were more than we could handle. No one else in the restaurant seemed to be looking at their own food strangely. So either our burgers were messed up, or the other people were even more addicted to salt than we are.  We haven't been back.

                             

                             

                            Well, I did *NOT* heed your advice and went to a Smashburger tonight for the first time.  Salt, salt, salt, salt, salt!  So I would say that your experience was not unique.

                             

                            It's been over 1/2 hour since I finished it and I can still taste the salt.

                             

                            If I go there again, I wil not be having a burger.  They do have some pretty good looking chicken things though.

                             

                            But it wouldn't surprise me if it was salty.

                              I dont like the grain and veggie style burgers.  Or the soy- let's pretend we are beef- burgers.  But spicy black bean burgers with avocado on top are worthy of their own category of foodstuff.

                                +1 i like the idea of a burger. The bun, some hot patty thing lettuce and lots of condiments. i have some premade in the freezer and they are easy to toss on the grill.
