I have never been excited about Shake Shack.  I don't get what people see in that burger.

On the other hand, I would kill for an In-N-Out to open in Tacoma.

I'm also not a fan of In-N-Out.  Thin patties all cooked medium well do not get my dick hard.

Five Guys has gone downhill a bit, but I agree, when it was young, it was incredible. Now, that broad is not aging well. It's no Shake Shack.

Louis' Lunch is a horrible burger. Sure it's the first place to serve it, but man, they are not that good.

Ted's is good if you like steamed burgers.

The best burger in CT is from Goldburgers in Newington.

Minetta Tavern is the best burger I've ever had.

Louie's Lunch is a great burger, but not in my top ten.

Shake Shack is incredible.

In-N-Out and 5 Guys are one in the same, a step above McD's.


The thing is that it depends on what kind of burger you're in the mood for at that moment. There are times when I'd love to go get a Shack burger, and other times when I just want to pick up a sack of sliders from White Castle. As long as it puts a smile on your face there should be no argument.

As a resident of DC, please let me say "Where?" Followed by another "Where?" for Arlington, VA.

However, we are carpet bombed with Five Guys here, so it's all good. And yeah, quality has slacked a little, but it's still a damn fine burger.

I wish these lists would include prices. I don't think a burger meal - however good - should require financing.

/In-N-Out is slightly above average.

The Peanut Butter Bacon and Jelly burger at Twisted Root trumps all! No seriously it is quite possibly the best burger I've ever had, next to Seattle's Red Mill Bacon Blue Cheese burger. Yes, you can find good beef in Seattle.

Just look at the place.

as for fast food bugers, in and out is ok.. but its overrated.. smash burger is pretty good. I really like the burgers at Kelly's Roast Beef ( locations around Boston ) maybe just because i dont get to have them around here. They just put in a 5 guys down the road.. havent tried it yet, but its on my list of things to do.

Seems the thoroughness of their review of burger joints is equal to the quality of their slideshow. Everything is in New York/NE area except the few places in Cali and Nevada that they had overheard about at a rooftop wine party. "oh it's a simply diviiiiiiiiiine burger".

Now that's a tasty burger. But you defiantly need a beverage to wash it down. It will hit the spot.

Don't go to the Spotted Pig then. I did have the burger there about 3 years ago and it was very good, but it cost about $20 if memory serves.
