  • Gustavs in Leavenworth, or Elliot Bay Brewing in W. Seattle (great buffalo burgers), and of course, beer.

    Too many places to list in Socal, but agree that In-N-Out is the best fast food burger. Oddly enough, I have watched them making fries there and you would think those fresh cut would be good and they are disappointing.

  • My favorite place to grab a good burger is sad to say Red Robin (I get the Royal Burger with a fried egg), always hot and juicy and delicious...

    Second would have to be Minors in Yakima ( Back in the Day ) mid to late 80's. They've changed a bit since then.

    Dick's is always a good inexpensive burger.. Never been to the one in Seattle, but the one in Spokane is the bomb.

  • I like Burgerville, my son likes 5 Guys which I have not tried yet. I get the occasional guttbomb from Roake's on Columbia or Joe Brown's in Vancouver, as already mentioned Dougfir has a good burger, I had a Lamb burger at Ramsey's Pub and Grill in Vegas that was fantastic.

    If McDonald's is the best burger anyone has ever had, I will personally take them to a nice burger joint and buy them a burger. Out of pity, of course.

  • Vera's Burgers are the shiz. You can't beat Vera's meat!

    yeah... they make a poutine burger...

    Image

    The Hulk Burger from Knight and Day used to be a favorite post clubbing meal. It was (IIRC) 2 patties, bavarian sausage, a fried egg and a lot of bacon (and the usual burger compliments). That thing was ridic. Too bad I think Knight and Day might be on it's last legs. There used to be like 10 of them around Vancouver, now there's only 2 left. I should go get one before they're gone forever...

    My other favorite post club burger was of course Roxy Burger. This is without a doubt the juciest burger in the history of juicy burgers. This is a Vancouver burger institution. Ahh... those were the days... go to The Roxy (the club) and try to pick up a juicy piece of ass. If you strike out; go next door to Roxy Burger and pick up a juicy piece of meat. Either way you win (and will end up with slippery fingers).

    Burger Heaven in New West is real good too. It's one of those places that makes the really thin patties, but puts like 5 of them on a burger. They have a 8 patty challenge burger; 2 lbs and a foot tall. It's awesome!

    shit....... Now I have to go for burgers for lunch. And to think, I was planning on working out at lunch.

    #1 is the Velvet Turtle in Palos Verdes, CA. The mustard and red onion combination was amazing.

    #2 Rodeo Cafe in Clovis, CA. Big, tasty burger with fresh cut fries

    #3 First time I had a double double at an In 'n Out in LA back in 1986ish, before that chain spread like the plague.

    Since the last time I ate at #1 was in 1975 and the last time I ate at #2 was probably 1987, both places are probably no
    longer in existence. Also, lots of memories are rolled up with those burgers, tilting them in favor of other burgers I have had since then.



    No way. Riley went Velvet Turtle on all yall. I ate at the Turtle with my Grandpa and his brother in West LA in the early 80's when I was 2-8. I can't speak on the burgers.

    Bulldog grill in Fresno has a killer avacado burger and all the burgees are pretty swell.

  • There used to be an old Dairy Queen in Vancouver WA that was never bought out by the Brazier franchise. They used to have the best damn burgers anywhere. I wonder if it's still there. Burgerville is another favorite. But now that I'm in the Seattle area I do love by some Bob's Burger and Brew and Blazing Onion. NOM

  • #1. Helen's Drive In, in Gardiner, Montana. 1/2 pound buffalo burger with the works, served with home-style fries and a huge pickle slice. And Helen remembers your name.

    #2. Kua Aina Burger, in Haliewa, Hawaii. Three 1/2 pound specialties; all good: Ortega chili burger, avocado burger, and pineapple burger, all magnificent. Works, fries, right on the beach.

    #3. Jeff's Pirates Cove, Talofofo, Guam. 1/2 pound burgers, or optional catch-your-own-fish-and-watch-them-cook-it burger. Served with fries and plenty of pirate ambiance. Quite literally a beach bar.

    @ CANHawk: that Vera's burger looks like the shizzzzzzzznit! I'd eat the hell out of that burger!

  • Fat Smitty Burger in Port Townsend.

    Image


    The Smitty Burger is essentially a big mac with bacon, but made with real food and not whatever it is that comes out of a McDonalds. A double bacon cheeseburger with a bun in the middle. Smitty uses a blend of beef with relatively little fat (7%) that's made specifically for his restaurant by a butcher in Silverdale and you can taste the difference. It's fresh, juicy, and if you put the burger down, you won't be able to pick it back up again. The fries are good, but you hardly need them after the giant burger.

    Wow. Herfy's. Haven't heard that name in awhile. I used to work at the one on Elliot Ave between Queen Anne and Magnolia back in high school. I don't believe it's there anymore, fact, I didn't think they even existed anymore. I always thought they had some really good burgers. Half priced employee meals. Oh man, the perks of working in the fast food industry 8)

    There was a tavern on the north side of queen anne by the Fremont bridge that was known for it's burgers, 310 tavern i think it was called, yeah they were damn tasty.

    There was a place like that in Cali I went to once and I just thought it was too many options. You would have to eat there too many times before you dialed in the correct sequence. I think thsts why In & Out is so popular. Its simple and pretty close to perfect.

  • If we are talking french fries 5 guys would be on the list, but as far as a burger, not spectacular. You can't put all the crap you want on a burger, but whats required is a nice good flavored juicy beef pattie, reasonably thick but not too thick, the bun has to be just right, its a combination.. Look at XXX in Issaquah, great ambiance, great shakes, giant burgers, but its all toppings and no meat, thats not a burger, thats a mess.

    I believe he's referring to the Char Burger in Cascade Locks, Oregon folks. IIRC there's one in Hood River too.

    That looks delicious DJ. I ride out that way a lot. Will have to stop in and try one.

    The best burger I've ever had was the one at Father's Office in LA (Culver City for you locals).

    I believe he's referring to the Char Burger in Cascade Locks, Oregon folks. IIRC there's one in Hood River too.

    That looks delicious DJ. I ride out that way a lot. Will have to stop in and try one.


    We usually stop at Char Burger any time we head up the gorge. It's been a few years though. Heading in that direction in about a month to go to Yellowstone, so we'll definatly be stopping by. Good grub indeed.

  • Can't believe nobody has mentioned "Frugals".

    That place makes a killer bacon cheese.......
    But I will also give a nod to the Herfy's. If you can find one that's kind of like a Ma and Pa Herfey's, they make a ridiculously good burger.
    There is one in Fife, a little hole in the wall place. Fries and burgers there are off the charts.

    But for the best freakin fast food burger, Frugal's all the way.

  • Yea, I work just down the road from the one in Fife......
    I'm on a quest to lose weight though. I'm down 17 lbs and need to lose 5 more to be in the 170's for the first time in forever.
    The Herfy's temptation is killing me. PLUS i drive by a Frugals on the way home......oh man the temptation.

  • Wanted to tell you that I have tried 5 Guys and Fat Burger just from some of you mentioning them.

    Thought neither was up to McDs Quarter Pounder with cheese. Yes I thought they were both that average. And to add insult to injury they make you wait forever, charge you more, and give you perhaps adaquate service and barely that.

    I completely agree about Five Guys. In regards to service; the guy behind the counter kept pimping the burgers as "the best burger ever." After waiting so long for the food the spiel wore thin quickly. Decent but, nowhere near best burger ever.

    I have a fondness for Hudson's Hamburgers in Coeur'D'alene Idaho. Simple, inexpensive and delicious. Burgers are made to order and cooked right in front of you.

    My Father (67) loves the Thrifty Scotsman. I guess I missed the boat. We were on a job in the Valley and my dad insisted on the "Thrifty" Day after day. Old decor, greasy surroundings. Decent food but, appalling atmosphere.

    If you're in the Spokane Valley, go to the Big "R" better value, better price. Oh yeah. Better food.
