Default The official CA Burger thread

The title says it all. Post your favorite burger joints! Here's some of my favorites:

Five Guys Burgers and Fries
Fatburger
In-N-Out Burger
Burkey's Grill in South Carolina
Steak n Shake
Houlihans makes a pretty good burger
Whitecastle


There's more, but I need to hit the sack.

Man when I first read the title, I thought it was CA - California and I wouldn't get to play, then it dawned on me..

5-guys - burger of choice - bacon, fresh cut jalapenos, grilled onions, A-1 steak sauce. Need I say more?

Stake and Shake is a close second, then Wendy's.

But then are times when I gotta have a Big-Mac or some Krystals. now I'm hungry.

Hands down, it's a little local joint with three locations in Bham only. Called Hamburger Heaven. Worth trying if you get down this way.

5 Guys is definitely one of the best burger joints around. Here is my go to:

Bacon, jalapenos, grilled onions, lettuce, cheese, bbq sauce.

Very similar to JKim's but with BBQ instead of A-1.

Tart's Grill---A very small, of the beaten path joint run by an older lady named Betty. Best Carolina burger (mustard, onions, chilli and slaw) in this area.

Also like the Tastee Freeze burgers, but I think the last one in North Carolina closed down recently.

Hardees (Carl's) gets my vote for the classic lettuce and tomato burger, though.

I prefer my burgers Med-Rare, so that cuts out many joints from having a decent, edible burger. Damn Food Police. My favorite joint? Mine. Nothing like a half pounder, done right on the grill with anything from a Sesame Kaiser, to some great ciabatta for a roll, good cheese, anything from Blue to co-jack, thick cut bacon, or one of a hundred different toppings. The drinks are always cold, the company is great, and you can go directly to the cigar lounge after dining, if it strikes the fancy.

Man that sounds great right about now.

As far as Burger joints go I like In-and-out and Red Robin. I&O cuz it is fast and tastes good. RR cuz burgers are good and you can have a beer when the kids can have a shake.

I honestly haven't been to one since I was a kid. I don't remember what their burgers are like.

I'll have to hit up a fuddruckers for lunch one of these days. Five Guys is awesome, I agree, but In-N-Out is amazing. The first thing I do when I fly out to the left coast is hit up the nearest stand!

Five Guys, the burgers are overcooked but the french fries are worth it.
