As Mashed Potatoes stated above, Fuddruckers is my favorite place to get a burger. There is a place that used to have good burgers down in Edgewater called Sue's Deli. I haven't been down that way in years, so I'm not sure if they are as good as they used to be. I haven't tried most of the other places that aren't "fast food" that were mentioned in this thread.

 

As for "fast food" places, I do enjoy a burger once in awhile from Gino's since they are back (as DJ MC had already stated).

Yesterday we went to Jake's Wayback Burgers in Annapolis (the original Jake's Hamburgers is in Newark, DE) since we had a coupon. It's off Riva Road near the CVS and BB&T. We had Jake Cheeseburgers - if I remember correctly, two patties, American slices, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, raw red onion slices, and bread-and-butter pickle slices. Got some fries as well. The hamburger was very juicy and sizable, beat the hell out of anything I've gotten at Five Guys in the past year or two. Fries had a great balance of crispness and give, nice color but not overdone, just enough salt. We had iced tea, so no report on their milkshakes (which, like at any place that bothers to sell and promote milkshakes, are pretty pricey). Seating is what you might expect at a Five Guys or some Jimmy John's, except with a warmer ambience (and a large TV toward the back - not sure how much entertainment you'd get out of it, since it was 2:00 and CNN was on when we were there).

 

There is one in Bel Air also, so if you are more north than me (basically everyone is) and like the idea, that one is probably more convenient.

Im not sure how people determine what the best burger is. When I was in New Mexico, driving through this truck stop town, there was this little shack that had the "7th best burger in America" Bobby Flay had been there, did the throwdown against the owner and lost. Id like to be blown away when they say something is one of the best in America. This burger was nothing special at all. Another example is Arthur Bryants "World famous BBQ" in Kansas City...where you expect good BBQ...meh. Ive have better in Parkville.

So what makes a great burger to you? The burger itself, the toppings, size?

The roll and what they/you put on it is huge to me.

I put all sorts of stuff on mine.

I do agree that the overall quality of the burger is pretty similar for the most part.

What's the best painting in the world? Same shit. Burger is art, it's very individual. To me, well seasoned beef, roll that is dense and not fluffy, fresh vegetables. I'm a simple man.

I think a Brioche bun is a must. I prefer thick burgers over thin pressed out ones. At least 10oz if you want to be considered a burger and not a sandwich.

The quality of the actual patty is the most important and it needs to be cooked to order (medium rare for me or even closer to rare). After that, well it's the quality and amount of everything else that's patty of the burger. What specifically I want on the burger I can generally get wherever depending on my mood, but the quality of everything changes based on location.

Yes, it's very individual -- but it's still fun to talk about your favorite pizza, cheesteak, restaurant, vacation spot, baseball stadium and the other "bests" we've discussed here. For many, a burger is just a burger -- I can respect that. For me, I'm not much of a wine aficionado, an expensive bottle of wine doesn't do much for me.

 

The Counter is my favorite burger place.

I hadn't heard of that place (didn't know it was a chain), I googled it, turns out there's one in Reston. It's a little pricey. I'd like to try it at some point.

I wouldn't say it's pricey. Let me know what you think if you go.

Nice, had no idea. I'm grilling my delicious home made burger recipe this evening. Some skirt steak as an appetizer. Should be great.

No need to fly out west for Fatburger anymore...since Orlando Brown (RIP) opened one in Columbia.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I tried making these burgers recently (firecracker mix) and they were pretty darned good.
