My son buys 'um for me all the time... They're great but I think I still favor IN-&-OUT. There's something about the simplicity of their burger.

Never heard of smashburger till now. I like the bacon cheeseburger at Cracker Barrel. I get mine on grilled sourdough bread with onion rings. Hard to beat. Ruby Tuesday makes an awesome burger, comes with unlimited salad bar. In Raleigh, NC there's a place called "Fat Daddy's" who makes their own bread and has a "fixin's bar" so you can build it how you like it. Awesome fries and onion rings too. Not sure if it's a chain or not. Never left there hungry. They have probably 50 micro-brew beers on real ice. Mmmmm. Live music and pool tables downstairs. Bring a designated driver!

Now I'm hungry. Thanks.

OK...I was a vegetarian for 7 yrs, just 3yrs ago I stopped. (Sweet but long story.)

This past fall I went on a search for the BEST cheeseburger.
Having tried about 30 from most of the fastfoods (never go into Mc D's), and one in every nice place around here, I have concluded that the very best was.....?...?......?.......?......

The Carl's Jr Steakhouse burger.
Quote from L.A. Times:
"The fast-food chain is taking a cue from more upscale restaurants with its Steakhouse offering. The Black Angus beef patty will be smothered with A.1. steak sauce, Swiss cheese and crumbled blue cheese, crispy onion strings and the standard lettuce, tomatoes and mayonnaise."

It was so....good...I wanted another one....but was too full !!!

Check this out....

Retire in 1yr. 3mo. , but who's counting

There is an upscale steakhouse near me that has lunch specials in the week.

My favorite is their hickory burger. About 1/2 lb of freshly ground beef with cheese, bacon, hickory sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and onions with lashings of fries and a pickle. I prefer it prepared medium rare.

It is served with your choice of tea or soda, a draft beer, a glass of wine, or a martini.

All for $10.

Our son used to work at Hardee's, and he found out a bit about the chain. Carl Jr's and Hardee's are pretty much the same, but they use different names in different areas. I've not seen a Carl's around here, but Hardee's are fairly common. DW and I prefer Hardee's for a quick burger, but when we're pulling the mpg, a place on the right with a large parking lot trumps a Hardee's on the left.

Has anyone tried the "Original" Smash Burger, the Herd Burger in Jacksboro, TX? I do not even know if they are still in business but they used to make the best Old Fashioned Greasy burgers ever.

Nothin beats a good barbecued burger loaded with fried onions and real cheese, cooked on the barbecue at the TT. Add a few great friends, a few cold beers, or a glass of wine. Sit back, enjoy the company, tell the best lie, and laugh at those fools eating processed meat and cheese at the burger joint. On the other hand, we often pass on the burgers and have lobster. I can usually get it for about $ 2.50 a pound off my friends boat. Your all invited. Canadian beer only. LOL!!!!!!!

I ate a lot of take out burgers in my single days but don't much care for them now. A Costco patty grilled on the hibachi with our own fixins at the cg is preferable by far.
We did find a good one in northwest Washington called Bob's. Reasonably priced and the signature burger is huge, I can't finish one with a side of mojos.

One just opened up near us in Louisville Ky. We ate there today. DW at the whole burger. Mushroom and swiss + bacon. First time in years she has eaten her whole sandwich. :-)
I had a big smash and enjoyed it muches.
Loved the fried pickles and banana peppers.
Pricey compared to regular burger places, bit worth it for the service and food I thought.

museum and saw the plane that crashed in the Hudson river and went to the Billy Graham Library I will post pics in another thread

Agree totally. 5 guys wins the fries war but the smashburger wins the burgers, particularly with the more "custom" burgers at smashburger. They are pricey but frequently have bogo coupons, that makes it a reasonable outing.

Ok, a little trivia. Hardee's was started in the 60s in the town I work in, Greenville NC, by Wilber Hardee. Mr. Hardee sold the small chain of fast food restaurants here in Eastern NC to a group of business men in Rocky Mount NC. They took the chain nationwide. The headquarters remained in Rocky Mount until Carl’s purchased the chain and moved the headquarters away.
When I was a teenager in Washington NC, Hardees was our hang out. Drinks were $.10, French fries were $.15 and a hamburger was $.25. We sure have come a long way from that.
