    O.K. Most of us carnivores have a favorite place for hamburgers, and or cheeseburgers, however one tops them. What's yours? It may give us all a new idea on where to go to satify the urge for beef. My favorite is too far off to do except on vacation,,, Big Bear Hotel, Hawk Junction,Ontario Canada.
    It's about a half pound burger, topped with a slab of Canadian bacon, onions,
    Swiss cheese, mushrooms, on a toasted bun. Damn!!!!! they are good. I know you fellas must like to gnaw down,,, tell me some good spots.

    Good eatin'

    Richmond VA. Little walk-up place called Uncle Roy's Big Burger. Been there for about 40+ years. Go there at lunch time, you have businessmen in suits,waiting in line with construction workers, hip-hop teens, and the occassional nun. Big 1/4 lb, served with mustard, diced onions, diced tomatoes.

    Place that was run by my late aunt in Centerville VA called Satterwhite's also had a speciality. Called the Mammoth Burger, weighed 1 lb, looked like a meatloaf on a bun. :D

    Now, if you are ever looking for the best club sandwich in the world, it is in Honolulu- Chief's Hut at the Outrigger hotel. 1/4 inch thick turkey, thick applewood smoked bacon, sweet Hawai'ian bread, Maui tomatoes. Served with Maui potato chips and fresh cole slaw.

    I made my signature burgers this evening.
    I start off with 70% Bison meat, 20% venison, and 10% pork fat. Toss in some montreal hamburger seasoning and some diced onions.
    I run that all through the meat grinder/extruder and make 1/2lb patties.
    My wife makes the buns from scratch in the oven.
    I cut fresh lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, and pickles. Get the mayo, catchup, relish, and mustard.
    Cook burgers on charcoal or hickory (no gas) to desired finish and pile all ingredients on the bun.
    Serve with some home made potato chips, home made beans and a fresh garden salad.....Hoooooooo doggie thats eatin'!!:D

    No doubt there gus,,, sounds great. Try some elk or moose if you can get it.
    I agree,, gas grills just don't produce the great flavor as does the charcoal.

    There are a few local spots that the mere thought of makes my mouth water, but Five Guys is one place that I know will never disapoint me no matter where I am (at least as long as Im on the eastern seaboard).

    And where in Richmond is Uncle Roy´s? I´ll have to check it out some time.

    MPD, it is at 5200 Lakeside Ave, right at Bryan Park. Hole-in-the-wall looking kinda place, but eat one, and you will be hooked.

    Oh gawd, you guys are talking about meat.... ARGH....

    The best burger I've ever had was an In N' Out burger. The resturant burgers here in my town... to be honest.. did not compute. It's the only fast food burger that both tastes amazing and it doesn't make me sick to my stomach like McDonalds does... which I stopped eating 6 years ago.

    Crap.... I'm craving a 3x3 right now.

    Five Guys would be my favorite burger joint. The burgers are very good and the fries are excellent and the price for what you get is pretty good as well.

    a big DITTO on the in&out. After moving from CA to OK for 6 years, in&out was severely missed. i think the closet thing was wattaburger and adding 1000 island dressing ourselves. it's been nice living back in CA and being able to get a double double and fried. :)

    Far be it for a certified 'Spawn of Satan' (ie vegetarian) to advise on burgers lol

    But a burger is NOT a burger in my country unless it comes with tinned sliced beetroot added...to do otherwise is sacrilege! :eek:

    I am with Yunus Five Guys is grease running down and dripping off your elbows finger eating (can't just lick them you have to chew on them a little) good old fresh burger deep fried bacon and real cheese burgers.

    Now back home in CA I love me some Marco's pizza burger I forget the name but it comes on grilled thick sliced sourdough bread slathered in garlic butter and mozzerlla cheese and then you put on a 100% fresh ground chuck burger and 4 strips of bacon with that veggie crap if you want. I prefer meat and cheese with carbs on the side burgers.

    I just had a great burger called the bacon cheddar burger from Wegmans. It has cheese and bacon in the burger then you top it with even more cheese (1/2" think slice if your me) and more and more and more and more bacon like 6 strips more bacon.

    In New Zealand, the McD's Big Mac comes with the "beetroot" as a standard. I've actually eaten one there and its not too bad.

    I have traveled all over this country, and around parts of the world, and I can tell you that the US is the only place to get a real, honest to goodness cheeseburger...

    One good place is a local, established bowling alley. They always have pretty decent burgers if the place is old and run down and doesn't have all the lights working... LOL

    In & Out burger is the best quick burger I have found.

    Qwik Stop in Fife, near Tacoma, makes awesome burgers, and they are only open during the summer months....

    Paradise Burgers are awesome too.

    I have to think a bit, but I know of a couple of other really good places that I have visited...

    Now, you want to talk steakhouses?!? God damn but there are some good steak houses in this country!! :D

    There's a diner about an hour from me into W.Va. that is called Big Al's. His Big Al burger is the most decadent creation I've ever eaten.

    And no, it is not served on SGT-MILLER's buns. :eek:
