Burguesa Burger: A New Definition For Tex-Mex

Burguesa Burger is a new Dallas based burger franchise that is combining classic Mexican with classic American. The Mexican in Burguesa Burger is a lot more than the usual Jalapeño topping.

Fat Ho Burgers in Texas

There’s a new burger joint in Texas that’s proving to be… how to put this… not exactly for everyone. That’s Lakita Evans standing in front of her shack on 11th Street in Waco, Fat Ho Burgers. Evans says she got the name after watching the 2006 movie Phat Girlz, starring Mo’Nique. “I was trying to […]

Churchill’s: Better Than the Best

Say you’re a movie junkie.  Not a professional film critic, but a good judge of what at your local cineplex is good and what’s crap.  How would you react if someone said that an independent student film you’ve never heard of is better than “The Godfather?” Welcome to my state of mind not too long […]

Walt Disney World’s Muffalata Burger

The muffuletta is one of New Orleans’ signature contributions to the culinary world. Born in a French Quarter grocery store in the early 1900s, the “muff” is now as much a part of the Mardi Gras experience as po’ boys, etouffee, and gumbo. That’s a beautiful shot from passionateeater’s wonderful blog.  A circular loaf of […]

Hardee’s: Grilled Cheese Bacon Thickburger

One of the unforeseen hazards of having a job as a professional cheeseburger eater is that it’s actually not easy for me to just dash out on a burger run when the mood strikes.  Before this gig came along, when I felt like a cheebie for lunch, I’d hit whatever joint was closest and grab […]

Stuffed Blue Cheese Burgers

“I have an idea” are words that tend to scare my wife, especially after my Backyard Blowout Burgers that, while awesome, were admittedly quite an involved production and managed to dirty every single dish in the kitchen.  Still, I decided to start my Labor Day Grillathon with another new cheeseburger I’d been dreaming of.  This […]

Steak ‘n Shake: Frisco Melt

Wanna start a food fight?  Wander into an online chat room full of hamburger connoisseurs and announce in all caps that your favorite kind of burger is a patty melt.  Then sit back and watch World War III erupt. Die-hard foodies will get downright violent in telling you that a patty melt is NOT a […]

Heinnie’s: Best Burger in Indiana?

Elkhart, Indiana knows hardship.  Three times within the past century, whatever industry Elkhart has pinned its livelihood on has dried up and blown away, leaving this small town of about 50,000 with little more than a blue-collar work ethic to fall back on.  (You may recall that President Obama all but named Elkhart the poster-child-city […]

Classic Indiana: The Breaded Cheeseburger

A recent family vacation had me “Back Home Again in Indiana” (native Hoosiers and anyone who has attended the Indy 500 over the past 30 years now has Jim Nabors’ velvety baritone voice stuck in their heads – you’re welcome) for a couple weeks of R&R. My trips back to Indiana- like most homecomings- are […]

Bub’s: Elk Burgers in Indianapolis

In writing for this site over the past 14 months, I’ve read reviews of hundreds of burger joints from all over the country.  The ones that really strike my fancy go on a master list I keep.  When I find myself traveling, I check my records, looking to cross off another hamburger hotspot while I’m […]

Krystal vs. White Castle: Head-to-Head Burger Battle

Nashville. The capital of Tennessee, the center of the country music universe. Home of the Grand Ole Opry, with a downtown entertainment district full of enough neon-lit nightlife to earn it the nickname “Nashvegas.”  For sports nuts, there’s the NFL’s Titans, the NHL’s Predators, and Vanderbilt University of the SEC.  Fan of road food?  It’s […]

Backyard Blowout Burgers

I told you it was coming. Back in April, when The Cheesecake Factory was soliciting entries for a custom-built burg to add to their menu, I submitted my own creation.  Sort of a “what if…” burger idea I’d been mentally preparing in my head for the better part of a year.  And I told you […]

London: Beefeaters and Burgers at GBKBurger Reviews

During a recent visit to the UK, I found myself at one of the most popular tourist attractions in all of England, the Tower of London. The sprawling complex on the River Thames, consisting of numerous buildings inside a double-curtain stone wall and moat, is positively dripping with almost 1000 years of history.  Construction began […]

Shakespeare’s Globe: Burgers with the Bard

I recently had the opportunity to visit London for the first time.  My list of must-visit places filled up quickly: the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Harrod’s.  But as an English major and former theatre rat, I knew I’d also require a pilgrimage to Shakespeare’s Globe. Shakespeare’s Globe is a reconstruction of the […]

Strasburg: Big-League Pitcher, Big-Time Burger

The Washington Nationals are not a very good baseball team.  About 40% of the way through the MLB season, they’re 11 games out of first place.  Last in their division.  But a 22-year-old kid named Stephen Strasburg has given Beltway baseball fans and cheeseburger chowhounds alike something to cheer about recently. The right-handed pitcher from […]

Fatburger: The Best Burger Joint You’ve Never Tried

Fatburger is one of those chains I’d heard of (probably because of that overtly-obnoxious name) but never been to.  Then, at a red light a few miles from home, I suddenly saw one I’d never noticed before, sandwiched between a Starbucks and some place wanting to buy my gold.  I don’t drink coffee, and I […]

Griddle Burgers: Memorial Day Cook-In

Ah, Memorial Day.  The unofficial start of summer.  Few things are more universally American around the last Monday in May than to take a dip in a newly-opened swimming pool, flip on a car race, and fire up the grill for the first big cookout of the season. Unless, of course, you’re staring down the […]

CPK: Cheeseburger Pizza

The best of a cheeseburger blended with everything that’s great about pizza sounds like a no-brainer awesome-on-awesome hybrid.  But while the idea of a cheeseburger pizza sounds spectacular, I’m usually left feeling like I got neither a true cheeseburger experience nor real pizza taste.  I was forced to reconsider, though, when the family and I […]

Farm Burger: Local Cow Makes Good… Lunch

For someone who eats cheeseburgers on a semi-professional basis, I’m admittedly terrible about hitting new places.  I finally made it to Grindhouse Killer Burgers months after they opened.  It took me over a year to get to Flip Burger Boutique.  And I spent an embarrassing 15 years in Atlanta before I found Ann’s Snack Bar, […]

Flip: The $40 A5 Kobe Burger

Back in August, after Business Week published a “Most Innovative Burgers” list, I kind of pissed in celebrichef Richard Blais’ cornflakes.  The molecular-gastronomist-slash-foodie-rockstar behind Atlanta’s Flip Burger Boutique had an entry on the list, and I was none too impressed.  About his Pate Melt Burger, I scoffed, “…if veal and pork pate topped with lingonberries […]

Cheeseburger Pie

As the primary chef in our household, I’m the one responsible for putting dinner on the table on a nightly basis.  And with a 6-year-old and a 3-year-old in the house, finding meal options that actually get eaten can be a challenge.  But I’ve never had a complaint when cheeseburger pie is on the menu.

The Varsity: Burgers from a Hot Dog Stand

To say that The Varsity is an Atlanta landmark is an understatement.  “Institution” is a more apropos word to describe this 82-year-old, two-story, full-city-block-long hot dog joint that serves 2 miles of frankfurters EVERY DAY. I call it a hot dog joint because that’s what the World’s Largest Drive-In is best known for: greasy little […]

Jack in the Box: Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger

Funny how we mythologize moments from our past. That girl I made out with in the Holiday Inn hot tub in college probably wasn’t as cover-girl gorgeous as I’ve built her up to be over the years.  That last night in Paris in 1988, if I could re-live it, certainly wouldn’t be as wild and […]

New MLB Stadium Goes Upscale with Stuffed Cheeseburger

We’re just hours away from opening day of baseball season, which means chowhounds like us can soon start taking BP- biting practice- on the year’s new stadium concession stand offerings.  One of the most eagerly-awaited debuts in the major leagues for the 2010 season is in downtown Minneapolis, where the Twins are set to open […]

Back in October of last year, we told you about Burger King’s efforts to step up the burger experience for hungry customers with a restaurant redesign for its 12,000 locations.  Part of that revamp was to include shiny new “flexible batch broilers” that would allow BK kitchens to crank out extra-thick burgers, grilled chicken and […]

Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Grilling backyard burgers is damn near sacred to me.  I definitely subscribe to the whole “approach love and cooking with reckless abandon” philosophy, but only to a point.  After I spend an afternoon manning the grill, they had better be really good.  Taking one bite and shrugging off a new cheeseburger twist as a failed […]

The Vortex: Spanish Fly Burger

Last Thursday, while the overexposed celebrichefs and starry-eyed foodie gawkers were noshing their way through Rachael Ray’s VIP event in Miami, I decided to have my own personal burger bash at my favorite spot, the Vortex Bar & Grill. While their location in Midtown Atlanta isn’t as in-your-face crazy as the Little Five Points store […]

Ranch Burgers: A Sweet Taste of Summer

In the mood for a new cheeseburger?  Start poking around online and leafing through cookbooks, and it won’t take you long to find all kinds of “secret ingredients” that promise to make your next homemade burger a culinary masterpiece.  Hell, this site has a bunch of them.  Walnuts, cola, cherries, curry powder, pepperoni: you name […]
