My best burger I've ever had was in Vegas at this little restaurant that has 4 tables inside called Sammy's LA Pastrami & Burgers. They have a pretty big menu but I had the Double Chipotle Burger the first time and I can't order anything but that on my visits since then.

This isn't a picture I took but I found this on yelp.

Burger Bar in Vegas was exceptional as well.

You guys ever hit up the Burger Stop just off the I-5 north of Marysville? The one attached to the Shell station? I try to hit that sucka up every time I come down for a Hawks game or the outlet mall in Tulalip. Only problem though is I don't ever remember what exit it is, then I get distracted and forget to look for it. Then I zoom past it. Then I say "SHIT!" Then I realize there isn't a place to turn around for like 3 miles. Then I make this face: :( Then I buy an underwhelming $15 burger at the stadium...

That Burger Stop burger is a tasty little meat bomb for sure!

Sounds like the place just north of the last Kelso exit. Not sure what kind of station but people stop there from all over. The wife insists we stop there whenever we're in the area.

I'm gonna second the nomination for Fat Smitty's up in Port Townsend area.

It's not just greasy fat-laden crap that could give a healthy man a heart attack. I'm not a fan of the fatty burgers with tons of bacon and sauce.

Fat Smittys use quality local beef, it's fresh and lean, all fresh ingredients including the buns, and its about the best goddam thing in the universe after a 5-day hike through the Olympics. Many a hike through the Hoh or Queets, I find myself daydreaming about a smitty burger and it keeps me slogging through the mud. They even have normal sized burgers for those of us who try to avoid obesity.

According to the internet, this is a Fat Smitty burger. No, no bacon or fat in that! Looks good though.

I think a lot of you favor quantity over quality. What the hell is the point of a burger you can't possibly take an actual bite of? A horse could barely take an actual top-to-bottom bite out of some of these burgers you guys are posting pictures of.

Because I'm hungry, and because everyone else is doing it, here's a pic of my favorite burg from the local burger bar. Simple, quality, old-fashioned, delicious.

I'm with you. The Heart Attack grill comes to mind. Four patyies and a half pound of bacon. Thanks but no. Honestly I know I'm beating acdead horse but that is why I enjoy the simplicity of In & Out. No bacon, not greasy. Simple and delicous.

Speaking of being a pussy, is it suspect that one of my favorite burgers is a roasted zucchini & garbanzo (see: veggie) burger? I love meat (no pride parade) but this burger at The Hilt on Alberta St in Portland is pretty phenomenal. Feta, charred pepper salad, harissa sauce. Bonkers.

I have had a couple of pretty good grilled portabella and blue cheese burgers. They can stand up to most carnivore sandwiches.

Yeah that's their specialty burger. Like I said though, they've got a regular quarter pounder that is quite delicious, especially after a long grueling hike through the rain forest.

I would like to add the caveat that any burger with a fried egg immediately gains 2 points on the 1 - 10 scale.

That reminds of me of Burger Bar in Tacoma. Little hole in the wall place that has awesome burgers and teriyaki. They have an off-menu item called the big samoan which has like 3 patties, egg, bacon and just about everything else that is amazing.

This thread is like a 'to do list'!

Danny's Palm Bar in Coronado, CA is the best I have ever had.

Two local-ish places that everyone should add to their to-do list is:

Burger Express in Federal Way (near home for me - yea!)
Crazy Eric's in Bremerton

In real life it closed. Its now a coffee shop. Burgers weren't that great or they'd still be open, obviously.

If you guys want to try something next time you cook up your own...Cook the bacon, cook the onions in some of the bacon grease, melt and mix some peanut butter with the w/ onion & chopped bacon, spread on burger with some cheese like Havarti or swiss. Sounds weird, but is absolute goodness.

And like CAN said, a fried egg is always a good thing.

Hard to beat a good burger down on the Columbia on a sunny day watching all the action on the water at McMenamins on the WA side.

I'm a fan of some of the older places in Clark County. I used to go to Igloo and that place never let me down. I also used to go to Obrady's in Dollars Corner and get the Fat Clancy. That place is being demolished for a road and it's a damn shame. The old Dairy Queen on Main and 4th plain has been mentioned by some in here and it is by far the most unique and best DQ on the planet.

I will confess though, that I eat at Burgerville once too often and I'm a little miffed they tore down the original one on Mill Plain. Still, the Burgerville ingredients are so top quality (and local) that even pregnant women eat it because it's safe and I'll often eat it when sick or hung over. Extremely tasty burgers for fast food. Best there is, IMO, and they got a "Best Better Burger" award from food network. There is no fast food buger joint that is better and the owner has done a lot for downtown renovation in Vancouver. One of the big investors in the Esther Short area where you'll always find people nowadays vs the 90s where it was just crackheads and transients.

BTW, Walla Walla onion rings are back at BV. Better than the ones at The Onion in Spokane, which was my previous favorite Onion Ring, which I don't eat a lot of. Must buy in both cases none the less.

To answer the question, the best burger I've ever had is always made myself.

Fun thread to read. Thanks for all the posts.

I somehow get the idea that 5 guys out west (and perhaps there is simply variation from location to location) isn't the same quality as some of the locations on the East Coast. Not sure how that could be, but perhaps there are different meat suppliers cause such variation? In any case, my family absolutely loves 5 guys. I wondered why some out west said they didn't particularly care for 5 guys... until I noticed when visiting a 5 guys location in another Florida city that the meat wasn't quite the same. The few locations we typically visit in Orlando are great.

My oldest son is the burger connoisseur. He really enjoyed a Buffalo burger he had at a place out on Anna Maria Island. I think Buffalo meat may be a better overall choice. But, still, his favorite is 5 guys which, to me, says a lot about how good 5 guys really is. Too, we must not be in the minority with that since their burgers are continually voted the best in many locations (at least on the east coast.)

From what I remember of In N Out... I think I liked it better than 5 guys. But, we don't have it here.

Just to add something to the conversation in listing non-chain places, there is a place in Ft. Collins that serves up a tasty burger that had a topping we hadn't heard of before (though, I don't know I'd call it the best.): Cooper‘s Burger @ Coopersmith's Pub & Brewing (topped with a scoop of their "world famous" Artichoke Dip.) Give that a try next time you BBQ at home!

Sorry I'm on an Almost Live kick.

The Last Northwestener.... what's one of the things he has to save from the Californians?

There was a place called Barnacle's in Des Moines that's in this spot that basically is a revolving door at attempts to run a local joint next to Jack in the Box and Red Robin, so it didn't last. So maybe I remember this burger as better than it was just because it was a one-time, short lived thing, but they had their Barnacle burger that had smoked salmon and cream cheese on it...and it changed my life.

Smokey's in Burien on 1st and 128th might be my favorite old fashioned mom and pop type place to get a burger, ate there quite a bit when I was fixing up my grandfather's house when he moved into assisted living before he passed away. Cougar Country in Pullman is also amazing for a hungover day (everyday in Pullman). Also gotta give a shout out to Han's Burgers in Federal Way, but I haven't been there in years, so I'm not sure how much I trust my own endorsement at this point.

I do love me some Dick's, too, probably my favorite place for the typical fast food order an absurd number of sandwiches type of binge place.

I haven't really discovered anything special lately since I've moved into the Greenwood area. Burgermaster was disappointing, and I've mostly just found amazing turkey sandwiches and gyros since then. Somebody start those threads.

If you're in the Greenwood area why haven't you been to 74th Ave Ale House? Sandwiches are great there.

I know that Barnacle place! We always comment on it as we drive by, wondering what the deal is. Looks like an interesting building/space. But have never seen it open.

And I agree about Burgermaster, I've been going to the one in Kirkland since high school. Burgers are disappointing, but the shakes and fries are good.

I've actually been meaning to. I live on 95th, so I'm not usually up that far, but whenever I pass by it on the bus I think about how I've got to go there. I'll be going soon.

It's closed now. It used to be Boston Pizza, which was there for years, but since they closed, it seems nobody has been able to find success in that spot. I think a new business has already moved in, but I might be wrong.

Burgermaster gets the whole concept of the burger wrong. They make a sick grilled cheese and the fries and shakes are good. But if I'm eating in my car, which is the whole experience, then i don't want a messy burger.

I was always enjoyed Rons in the Spokane Valley when I lived there. Herfys @ Lea Hill in Auburn is my place now.

You guys ever hit up the Burger Stop just off the I-5 north of Marysville? The one attached to the Shell station? I try to hit that sucka up every time I come down for a Hawks game or the outlet mall in Tulalip. Only problem though is I don't ever remember what exit it is, then I get distracted and forget to look for it. Then I zoom past it. Then I say "SHIT!" Then I realize there isn't a place to turn around for like 3 miles. Then I make this face: :( Then I buy an underwhelming $15 burger at the stadium...

That Burger Stop burger is a tasty little meat bomb for sure!

I know exactly what you're talking about. Had to make a pitstop there while working in the area. The burger was just okay tho.
