    Hardee's maybe used to be a contender, but when I came across one in MT a few years ago I discovered it was just another d* (not the usual usage on this forum) Carl's Jr.

    After hearing people rave about In-n-Out, I tried one in Las Vegas. I just don't get it.:shrug:

    Sad to read of the demise of Burger Chef. Thanks, machavez00.

    Some other sizeable chains: Jack in the Box, A&W, White Castle

    You can get them in the frozen food section at the supermarket. Probably the one food item freezing can't possibly hurt. I like a slider now and then. It's an aquired taste, like stinky cheese.

    I agree FUDDRUCKERS is #1 by far. But since it is not fast food I did not say anything about it. FIVE GUYS is also very good.

    White Castle is (was?) strongest in the midwest. Their slogan used to be "Buy 'em by the Sack" when I lived in Chicago many, many years ago. The burgers were small and square with a few holes in them to allow steam to escape while cooking. They were cooked in huge quantities on a gas griddle (closed surface grill) -- half with chopped onions, half without. Back then, they didn't offer cheeseburgers and definitely didn't have fries. For beverages, it was coffee, milk or orange drink.

    I voted Wendy's, though I'm not really a big fast food burger lover. I'd take BK's whopper over McDonald's burgers.

    Personally, I'll take burgers cooked at home on the grill outdoors, topped with a slice of Vidalia Onion, ketchup and sweet relish. Accompany that with home made fries (russet potatoes, please!) and a can of Bud (sorry, guys, I've never tasted Blue Moon :) ) -- Great stuff!

    Nothing can beat a home grilled burger for me. So I'm with you 100% on that except the onions.

    One of my most current favorite burger places was Anthony's in Howell, MI. It is now gone.

    My favorite was the White Hut in Toledo, Ohio. It closed a long time ago, and my childhood memories may not be too acurate any more.

    Bill Thomas' Halo Burger (Flint, MI area) has burgers that are without a doubt, heavenly. Although I have stopped going there because they had been going to hell over the last several years.

    As a kid in Brooklyn, there was a place called Westson's.
    they had great burgers.
    When I moved back to New York City in 2003 after being away for many years, I found White Castle still operating in the area.
    For a total of about 53 cents, I would be able to get a burger. Still tasted great.
    I noticed that different in the ones I find in the frozen food section of supermarket was that it lacked the pickle.
    For me, it was thepickle that make the White Castle burgers great.

    Peace,

    Leprechuan

    Carl's Jr. - Never heard of it
    Hardees - None Around
    Sonic - None Around
    Dairy Queen – Strictly Ice Cream Around Here
    Wendy's - Never Had Their Burgers
    McDonalds – Only order McGridels and McFlurries (for the most part)
    Burger King - F'n Rocks! Just polished off a Triple Whopper w/Cheese.

    Also no White Castles, Whataburgers, Big Boys or Jack In A Boxes around here.

    I only eat at McDonalds since there's one about 5 miles from me, their portions are too small, and it seems like McDonalds employees don't understand, No lettuce, no onions, no tomato, no pickles. I do like McDonalds fries better though.

    Last weekend I went to Fuddruckers for the first time ever. Great burger, but it’s on par with the bar and grill type places, Chili’s, Applebee’s, Famous Dave’s, etc. It was good, and better then the fast food places, but nothing extraordinary IMO. There’s a burger chain called Bill Grays that’s big in Rochester and we have one in the Buffalo area, that place is pretty good…but I have yet to try their burgers, I always get pulled pork or grilled chicken sandwiches. Maybe next time :) The garbage plate diners in the Rochester area also have great burgers.

    - Best Burger - Burger King
    - Best Fries - McDonalds or Arby's Curely Qs. A lot of places (non fast food) seem to be doing steak fries, I prefer regular fries
    - Best Shakes - Wendy's Frosty and Oreo McFlurries Tim Horton's Iced Cappuccino (Not shakes but close enough :) )
    - Best Chicken - Famous Daves
    - Most Child-friendly - Hooters
    - Best Mascot (?) - Hooters

    It's been ages since I went to a Fuddruckers, but the last time I did go it was sort of a build your own burger place. They give you a burger on a bun and you add whatever you want to it from their condiment bar.... sort a Buildaburger type joint, but not so secret. :D
