Old timely Murrays in mpls used to have a great one; musso and frank in Hollywood too.

Game-Changing Cheeseburgers in New Orleans at The Company Burger

Umami Burger in NYC Misses the Point

I tried it early in Los Angeles and was completely underwhelmed. I compared the umami effort with the seinfeld episode about making a tv show about 'nothing' http://burgersdogspizza.com/2010/04/los-angeles-ca-umami-burger-snicker/

You're forgiven for overlooking the tots at Keller's in Dallas.

Staff Picks: Burger Places with Stand-Out Sides

Little Big Burger is overrated in every single category. Blech.

Where to Drink Coffee in Portland, Oregon

Happy you didn't include the highly overrated stumptown, but I think barista is in that category too. I like my neighborhood guys in SW, Baristadors.

Japanese Fast Food at Gabutto Burger in Arlington Heights, IL

I had a little different impression, a different bun and fry experience. I'd do it again. http://burgersdogspizza.com/2013/07/arlington-heights-il-gabutto-burger/

Poll: Which Burger Execution Issue is the Most Unforgivable?

I'm with suzanne, filler is a no no. Also calling it "american kobe". And if the word umami is on the menu. That's all.

Titus, have you had this Wisconsin great? The "Detox" burger at the Detox Bar in Arcadia, WI. http://burgersdogspizza.com/2013/05/arcadia-wi-detox-bar-grill/

In-N-Out really that good? Do you like Whattaburger?

I'd go for Whata over In N Out. I think In and Out's mystique is just that. Granted, they have very fresh, pretty veggies on their burgers, but that's not what makse a burger for me. Take theirs apart, and that's a very thin, flavorless slab-ette of ground beef.

Portland Burger Week - suggestions/info?

The best burgers in Portland are at sushi bars.
bamboo sushi first, yakusa second. funny that the yakusa got started little big burger which are awful. also skip "local faves" like stanichs and helvetia. brunch box is good, too.

5 Boston-Area Chinese Buffets That Are Actually Quite Tasty

I love Chinese buffets, and have been to some really great ones. The one place they all seem to fall down is with their "American" food, though that's not what I am there for, obviously somebody wants it.

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat LaFrieda Burgers

No question.....Green Chili Cheeseburger at the Bobcat Bite, Santa Fe!

Staff Picks: Favorite Burgers for $5 and Under

I don't get Little Big Burger any more than I get Umami in L.A. Both long on hype, short on substance.

Chain Reaction: Famous Dave's

Sounds awful. Only time I ever stop there is if Mrs. Burgerdogboy is craving a pork rib feast, and I'll pick up a mess o food to take home to her.

Wedl's - Jefferson, WI

Since 1917, these guys have been frying burgers with a little lard and a lot of grilled onions on a flattop in an 8x8 shack on the sidewalk, open summers only. This is seriously one of the tastier burgers I have had in the past couple years. It's a hike, halfway between Madison and Milwaukee on US 18. Balls of fresh ground beef smashed on the griddle, bakery soft buns, you add condiments on your own.
