Jack box seems only to be on West Coast so I can't comment on their shakes.

Hot Dogs, oh my gosh, that’s a whole other bag of beans my friend. 

It takes you back to when you were a kid. 

I’ll pretty much take ‘em any way you want to give ‘em to me. 

Boiled, steamed grilled, char broiled, hot off of the BBQ to me really is the best though.  A little spicy mustard, or maybe a lot, and some chopped sweet onions. 

Now, my Mom likes hers just about brunt straight off the BBQ with a toasted bun and no condiments. 

Let me rephrase my fav:

at a baseball game with my husband maybe a few friends,

a great micro-brewed beer,

a foot long with mustard and onions,

loads of napkins ‘cause ya’ know you’re goin’ drip down the front of ya’,

maybe some cheese fries or garlic fries along side and then

something sweet later for dessert,

a fantastic game with lots of yelling and that my friends is a good dawg!!

I love In n Out, which is not any more than a mile from here, as well as many other southern California locations. Everything's fresh, the burgers are grilled just right and shakes that come with them are flavorful, creamy and cold. (That's important even in December here.) I love the grilled onions, which you can get by special request.

i know this is a best burger joint thread but since we've been talking dogs, has anyone here ever had a sonoran hot dog? you kgirl? they are famous in mexico and the southwest... the tuscon version is a bacon wrapped griddled dog topped with pinto beans, grilled onions, jalapenos, green chilies, cheese, diced tomatoes,or salsa, a squirt of some sort of mexican mayonnaisey type sauce...all stuffed into a bolillo roll....then there's the condiment bar just in case you might have missed something! radishes, cucumbers, lots of salsas with varying heat levels, grilled jalpenos or poblanos, mustard, ketchup..i  probably missed something...i will drive and hour and a half each way for one of those!...well that and total wine!

Now that’s it’s starting to warm up a little anyway, there was a truck on the side of the road not far from our place with a huge sign, "Sonoran Hot Dogs", so I thought of you Joey and I stopped.  Thank goodness I had some cash on me, that dog was so good!!  Also, last night was season opener for UA baseball at their new venue, Hi Corbett Field.  It was dogs and beer, baby!!

It's actually not around any more... Charlie's in Delaware County, PA.  Was a little "shack" behind a car dealership off Baltimore Pike.  The made every burger totally from scratch... like scooping a big handful of meat outta a tub and shaping it on the spot.  They grilled it the way you wanted it... learned early from my Dad that it HAD to be pink (bordering on red) in the middle.  And they had a messa stuff you could top them with... along with lots of nakins to catch the stuff that ended up running down your arm!

kgirl,

now that you've got your hot dog groove on, try a vietnamese hot dog...the 'banh mi' dog....dog topped with daikon radish, cucumber, cilantro, sweet chili sauce, red onion and sunny squeeze of fresh lime...it's like bases loaded and your team knocks the ball out of the park!!!

early in the thread I posted about Chuck n Freds.

 

With Five Guys opening up in my ares, i find their Bacon Double Cheesebuger with Everything is a pretty tasty burger.

 

I'm also partial to the pastrami burger at a local chain, Crown Burger.

C-Lady... I take it you are from the Philly area? 

post #42 of 57

ALOHA!! Sista' Joey, are you crazy?  A bahn mi dog?  Where did you find that one? 

All though, how did you know I have been having dreams about bahn mi sandwiches...

I was just about to try my hand at making the pickled veggies myself and give this a go. 

Both my Mom and I are big fans, my husband, not so much.  I like mine with the pate and pork and ALL the fixins'...

Oh Man, Phatch!  You found Three Guys?  Are they not the best? 

Yeah Boy!! Double cheese and bacon with EVERYTING!! 

Like I said, our baby (we're talkin' 6 and 9 year old) grand nephews are saying,

"Uncle you gotta' go to Three Guys", we thought that they were talking about some video game store! 

Now we have like them here!! 

Our niece moved and there's no Three Guys where they are,

she said NOW she'll come and visit us in the desert!! 

But please, tell me more about this pastrami burger you speak of... and where can I find such a thing ...

 

post #44 of 57

Well, there are many family based Greek/Turkish burger chains here that serve such things. Apollo, Astro, Crown... Crown has a special soaking treatment for their pastrami that makes in particularly delicious.

 

1/4 pound burger, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pastrami, thousand island dressing

kaneohegirlinaz... born and grew up in Delaware County, PA... very close to Philly.  What I'd REALLY like to find is the recipe for the "secret" sauce used on John's Doggies.  Original (I think?) in Chester... WAY to DANGEROUS to even think of going THERE anymore, sadly.  Another shop on "the Conchester".  Sauce isn't a "chili"... brown, some kinda fine ground meat, LOTS of onions and garlic, if tomato is in there, it's minimal.  Next time I'm in that area, I'm gonna see if he'll just sell me a QUART of the deliciious stuff!

post #46 of 57

friend-husband is from Ambler, PA but he left there some 30 odd years ago for SUNNY HAWAII!!  And met "his girl", so can't help ya' out on your quest for that secret sauce, sorry...

I usually like my burgers pretty simple, but up the way from me is a place called Coasters. They make a big burger, hand formed, that comes on a great bun. I get it with cheese and sauted peppers, hollister uk, and mushrooms. It's messy, sloppy and when Im done I'm a mess from the eyebrows down, but boy it's great. There is a lot of good looking thinks on the menu there, but I can never get past that burger.

post #48 of 57

This is making me so hungry for a burger now! maybe its time to work my way through the top 10 burger restaurants in the US, these all look amazing!

 

There is a fantastic place next to me, its really cheap, old american-dinery sort of feel, the best thing about it is the sheer selection of what you can having in your burger, some of the combinations are absolutely crazy, you can choose the type of bun, the type of meat and as many extras as you want, so they end up being absolutely huge! they also have desert ones, one is with chocolate and marshmallow (not with meat, ew), theres an ice cream one as well. My favourite is a chicken burger with mango chutney and salad, yum!

okay, so we were out and about today doing things and it was lunchtime

and we went past an In and Out burger joint and

I thought that we should give it another try. 

A chocolate shake, a vanilla shake,

and then 2 cheeseburgers and we shared an order of fries. 

Not good at all! 

We both commented to each other that McDonald's dollar menu, double cheseburger was better. 

The fries were aweful! 

FIVE GUYS !!  That's where it's at, baby !!

Here in San Antonio, there isn't much debate as to which restaurant has the best burger. Hands down, the designation goes to Chris Madrid's. It's a funky little hole-in-the-wall (as most great burger places are).

They don't have gourmet toppings; you won't find arugula or Emmentaler here. It's all about the delicious patties and the toppings that compliment it, not hide it. The meat is well seasoned and are really thin. When they are grilled, they develop a bit of crust on the outside that is really great. My personal favorite burger is called the tostada burger. It's topped with delicious refried beans, fresh chopped onions, and corn chips.

Howdy tyler !  I had posted a thread asking for places to eat in San Antonio.  Besides this great lookin' (and sounding) burger joint, where would you go to eat?

It totally depends on what you're looking for. If you're planning a trip to SA, shoot me a PM, and I can definitely help with some recommendations. I've been here for about 2 years now and had a chance to try most of the local favorites as well as the fine dining establishments.

I definitely love this place called Lucy's - the burgers are handmade, the buns freshly baked and they always come with both salad and fries. The burgers are so mouth watering good that just describing them here right now is making me want to rush out to Lucy's for one of their burgers. The best one in my opinion is the Frida Diego - which comes wit jack cheese and jalapenos.

I was looking on Google for a recipe for something or another and look what kind of burger I found in Japan ...

 

MOS Rice Burger, this is just one type of burger sold at MOS in Japan

In and Out has expanded their chain to Utah. I've tried it once and like Kaneohegirlinaz, found it pretty awful. I also agree, Five Guys does a pretty good burger.
