Default Elite eats: Survey names America’s favorite burger

Elite eats: Survey names America?s favorite burger - foodwine - TODAYshow.com

Quote:
According to the latest Fast Food Survey by Zagat, the best burger in America comes from Virginia-based chain Five Guys. But while the regional chain edged out national players in the hamburger category, Dairy Queen rules the Best Milkshakes category, while the best fries still come from McDonald’s.
Five Guys is good ... but I keep hearing about In-N-Out from my West Coast friends. Never had one, but I hear it's unbelievably good. What is your favorite burger joint?

In-N-Out was pretty good, but I've had better burgers. The value was very good.
My favorite burgers come from my own kitchen, but I've had an excellent burger at a little hole-in-the-wall place in Iowa City.

We have a pretty cool place here called The Counter. Gourmet burgers with the most extensive list of toppings you could imagine.

Fudruckers and Steak & Shake are also good. Hell, I'm getting hungry writing this.

The best burgers are homemade patties, and then you toast the buns on the grill.

Speaking of meat, I've started liking my meat cooked medium, as opposed to medium-well like I used to growing up. You get more flavor when it's a little pink, right?

You're learning, Marc. I managed a steakhouse a number of years ago and most of my customers liked their steaks done a bit less done than they thought they did.
Steak & Shake isn't bad.

I ate at a 5 Guys last Fall and wasn't impressed. I grew-up liking Steak 'n Shake, but now like burgers at local spots around the country. I know most will laugh but for a good flavor burger can be found at Hardee's. The local, private places are best.

Thanks catman. Here is a new survey done by Consumer Reports on burgers:
In and Out and 5 Guys tied at 1, Fudruckers 3, Burgerville and Back Yard Burgers tied at 4th. Then Culver's, Whataburger and Hardees. McDonalds was last.

No surprise that McDonalds was last. Their burgers haven't been good for 30 years.

I've never liked them (McD's) Even the kids don't like them. They have to put them in "Happy Meals" with cheap toys to get kids to want them.
