15 Best Burger Joints

...or so the article says.

I was happy to see my fave "In N Out" on the list.

15 Top Burgers

1. All-American Drive-In - Long Island, N.Y.
A famous and delicious "double double" for only $2.10? Fantastic!

2. Chris Madrid's - San Antonio
Try the "Tostada Burger" with refried beans, chips, cheddar and salsa.
3. CityGrille - Denver
Go high-end with a Steakburger, or local with a Buffaloburger.

4. Dick's Drive-In - Seattle
It's all about their famous special sauce with zingy bits of pickle.

5. Goldyburgers - Chicago
Serving 'em up hot, huge and cheesy since 1926

6. In-N-Out Burger - Los Angeles
The perennial favorite also won in Vegas, OC and San Diego.

7. Jack's Old Fashion Hamburger - South Florida
Hand-shaped, charbroiled perfection served up your way

8. O'Connell's Pub - St. Louis
Juicy, charbroiled nine-ounce burgers for more than 40 years

9. Peter Luger - New York
Prime dry-aged beef and signature steak sauce from a famed steak house

10. Roaring Fork - Phoenix
Try the "Big-*** Burger" stacked high with green chiles.

11. Stanich's - Portland, Ore.
Try the amazing "Special" topped with a fried egg, ham, bacon and cheese.

12. Tessaro's - Pittsburgh
Fresh meat ground daily in-house and flame-broiled on a hardwood grill

13. Thurman Cafe - Columbus, Ohio
Thurman Burger = a 3/4 lb patty, ham, mozzarella and American Cheese

14. Val's Burgers - San Francisco
You think you can handle the One-Pound Behemoth at Val's?

15. 96th St. Steakburgers - Indianapolis
Perfection with ground steak cuts and buns grilled with mustard

It made the top ten in the GQ version of the best burger list last year!

Yeah... In & Out Burgers are all right... but I'm on the other side of the fence here in Vegas, more often supporting the other leader - - Fatburger!

Maybe Miller's intimidated them by being just too handsome (you did say GQ, right?)
