What are the constraints? Just saw something on TV about some $5k burger with Kobe beef, white truffles and Foi Gras.

Fast food?
Sit down family?
Fine dining?

National chain? Regional?

Another non-PIT topic,these belong in the Chit Chat area!

BUT - HOMEMADE rules all; price and taste! I home grind my own selections/grades/cuts of meat the morning that I am going to grill them. There is nearly ZERO reason to ever buy a retail burger or steak as long as you know your butcher (not the meat counter) and how to select.

Fast Food: Sonic, (Checkers/Rallys comes in 2nd)
National chain: Steak N' Shake
Local: Jack's Old Fashioned Hamburgers
Sit Down: Steak N' Shake
mom and pop: Jack's Old Fashioned Hamburgers (Ft. Lauderdale)

Best overall though is at my house. Where I am often asked by my fiance's family to make this masterpiece:

Damn that looks tasty. I am more a purist without a ton of toppings or condiments but it does look tasty. Can you gives us a run-down of ingredients?

EDIT: sorry, didn't notice the link. I am SO GLAD to see a recipe that is smart enough to share this info with users: "Take the hamburgers out of the refrigerator 5 to 7 minutes before you are ready to grill them."

You should NEVER put ANY cold meat onto a grill, smoker, skillet or in the over. EVER! All it does is RUIN the item.

Well, the horseradish sauce is actually quite mild and it goes very well with the cheddar. I'd say make the sauce, keep it to the side and "test" a dab of it on acorner of your burger. The fried onions are really the trickiest part. They are done a little before you realize. Once the browning starts to happen, they can burn up in an instant. Also don't fill the pot up too high with oil and get a tall pot. I almost started a fire the last time I made these.

Use yellow or white variety, not vidalia or red. Something about the water/sugar ratio makes them soggy and not crispy.

But yeah, simply the best reason to never become a vegetarian.

(I use potato or onion rolls.)

We don't have In-N-Out Burger in Florida. Is this just a West Coast thing?

I forgot all about Fuddruckers. They are damn good.

Yeah. It's a family owned chain, not an independantly-owned franchise. In other words, every location is owned by the private company, unlike most other fast food joints which are individually owned, or owned by mini-corporations who own every one of a particular brand in a certain territory.

For fast-food burgers, I'd have to say In n Out, Wendy's, and Johnny Rockets. For family restaurant style, I like Red Robin. But, I really don't have much burger eatin experience in those kinds of joints. There is a also a local chain in NYC called Jackson Hole that makes a motherfucker of a burger.
