In & Out.

I do have to claim some local pride and say that Tonic makes a damn good guacamole/cheddar burger, though.

Good Stuff Eatery on The Hill. I heart Spike!

As much as I enjoy a good Five Guys burger, In & Out wins hands down (it's my Southern Cali upbringing). Best thing about In & Out is that there's countless things that aren't on the menu that you'd never know they served unless you just knew they served them...did you know you can get a grilled cheese at In & Out? :)

I miss it :(

Of the options mentioned, 5 Guys wins in a walk. Elsewhere, Booche's takes the title.

If I have to pick one I'll go with Five Guys. My second choice would be White Castle. It's been a long time since I've had White Castle. My mom served White Castle for my sixteenth birthday party. I miss those little burgers so much.

Ray's Hell Burger in Rosslyn. They give you a paper towels instead of napkins.

John said...

Ditto on Ray's. I feel like if they attempted fries, they'd knock them out of the park. But I love the confidence of not serving fries, it's like "no, you are going to like our burgers so shut up and enjoy it."

5 guys, the skellar in state college.

the sliders at matchbox are heaven.

Scottie said...

OOOO! Totally seconding the Skellar. And as totally suburban as it sounds, Cheesecake Factory actually makes damn good burgers.

I don't understand how five guys doesn't serve milk shakes. Seems obvious to me guys.

Theres also a place in Durham, NC called Cook Out. They have about 40 different flavors of milk shakes and you can get a cook out tray (burger or chicken sandwich plus two sides and a drink, sides include: french fries, hush puppies, chicken nuggets, another burger, and about four other ridiculous options) for about $3.50. Awesome.
