Regional hamburgers

Anyone ever noticed that, unlike barbecue, pizza, hot dog, some sort of sandwich (e.g cheese steak, po boy) seafood dishes, etc, there is no city or state that I can think of that is known for having the best or a particular style of hamburger? Where is the best hamburger? Remember that episode of How I Met Your Mother where Marshall is talking about his first "New York hamburger"? I mean is New York known for its hamburgers? I'd never heard that. My friend told me that Colorado is known for steaming their hamburgers. I could be wrong about all this. Anybody know of any sort of regional hamburger style or rivalry?
