The bun makes or breaks the burger. If it isn't large enough to handle the juices, turning soggy and falling apart the whole burger experience is ruined.

Bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo.

Unless you want to go chili and cheese.

And I would rather eat at McDonald's than In N Out.

I have mine with cheese, lettuce, tomato, fresh or grilled onions, and mayo or thousand island. I like to pile on the veggies since they do a great job of offsetting the meat and cheese. But yes, sometimes I just have meat and cheese to mix things up.

However, I'm about to go grab a bottle of truffle oil (not the real stuff) to make some truffle ketchup and sauce to use with burgers.

If I have the time this week I'm whipping up a big batch of burgers with onion, spices mixed in.

Fried egg on top. Pickled onions as well. That's magic right there. Half beef, half chirizo sausage, avocado. Done. I love meat between two buns. Wow, those words were placed poorly.

I'm always too nervous to ask for animal style. I don't want to be banned from my precious In N Outs. One of these days I'll have to muster up the balls to try it.
Double Double is the pro play, btw.

After moving to California last year I had to try out the infamous In-n-Out burgers, and that was the most disappointing burger ever.  It was just basically no better than McDonalds or another cheap fast food burger. 

I have no idea how people can rank that as a good burger or even talk about it, but they still have cars lined up every weekend regardless.    saywhat

I crave In-N-Out when I'm shit-hammered.  If I want a good burger, few compare to the delux burger at Delux restaurant in northern Phoenix.  Gratch has experienced it as well, so perhaps he would agree.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Five Guys.

Agreed. I have eaten there 3 or 4 times and it is always disappointing. The buns are soggy and the fries wilted. I only eat there when dragged by others. The bible verses on all the packaging is another reason I avoid the place.

That's my default for fast food burgers, but I only eat those during the winter, when I can't grill my own.

I prefer my own patties with ground beef, oatmeal, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, crushed red pepper, and garlic powder. Put a slice of cheese on top and another on the bottom, add yellow mustard, a slice of red onion, and a slice of homegrown tomato (in season, obviously) and that's as good as it gets. No fast food burger comes close.

Fuddruckers is teh awesome.  I am quite glad that there's one as close to my new place as there was before I moved.

I like Five Guys for the A-1 option, but find their fries to be lackluster compared to Fuddruckers.

A1, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato and FRESH jalapenos.  not those silly pickled jalapenos that some places use, but freshly cut ones.

i do patties with chili powder, celery seed, salt, pepper and cumin.  each burger is two little, thin patties with with a pocket in the middle, stuffed with bleu cheese and pressed together to seal shut.  i do mine lettuce, tomato, ketchup and bacon.  its really a lot easier and less busy than typing all of that made it sound.  i like the idea of fresh jalapenos and might try this

A good bun is the hardest part of a home burger. And the worst thing about 5 Guys is lack of a decent bun.

Ketchup and tomatoes are redundant.

Sounds good otherwise.

There's a Five Guys locally and they are pretty good.  agreed on the bun though. 

I must be one of the last people in Seattle who hasn't been to Dick's Burgers though.  they have a great reputation but no locations close enough.

I stopped eating at Five Guys after suffering some sort sickness from undercooked meat in 2009 when I had dinner at one in D.C. I got sick (in red appropriately, for a Capitals game) at a hockey game later (thank God we were in a private club box and so I, um, had privacy in the restroom), and was sick for several days. I used to like them, but increasingly found their burgers and fries grotesquely greasy.  puke

I only went to Five Guys once since, and stuck with a hot dog.  icon_smile

We have a bit of rennaisance of gourmet burgers here in Virginia:

BGR
http://www.bgrtheburgerjoint.com/

A one off place in Leesburg, VA makes some amazing burgers:

Melt Gourmet Cheeseburgers
http://www.meltgourmetcheeseburgers.com/

*I met some friends there back in spring, and while the burgers were amazing, seating space was inadequate/cramped, it's like a zoo most of the time.  icon_smile

The funny thing is, I think the best burgers I've had recently were simply pan-fried by my friends' mother when I was visiting with them a few weeks ago. My pal and his father unsuccessfully tried to get their old grill working outside. When it didn't work, his mom simply made some hamburger patties and fried them. They were delish -- sometimes simple is good.  icon_smile

I invested in a modest aluminum grill pan the other day, and may try to make some small slider burgers Saturday. Will let you all know how it "pans" out, and whether I get sick in red again.  icon_razz

I don't understand the fuss about Five Guys.  I tried them once and it seemed like a giant rip off.  It's fast food, but I'm paying more than double what I do at In N Out.  If I'm going to be paying that kind of money, I'd rather get Umami Burger.   ninja

Aye, that was a tasty burger.

I love In-N-Out burgers, everything else is a distant second.  Animal style is all sorts of nasty though.  

There's a local place here called Scaddys that is awesome.  It's a heart attack on a bun so I only eat there a couple times a year, but man their burgers are good.

One of my most memorable burgers was had in Australia. A buddy took me to a local burger joint in the town of Goulburn NSW.

He said can I order it for you. Sure, go ahead you only live once.

To my surprise, and a few minutes later to my joy, I was presented with a "Burger with the Lot"
Semi crusty bun, with a 1/4 lb. pattie. The usual stuff right? wrong. It had a thick slice of cold Beet root, and a sunny side up fried egg.(along with a couple of the more common additions.
But man, the taste was far better than the sound of it.

Bang! it just hit the mark for me.
