I live for burgers, dogs, and pizza
I get it where ever I can. Had some great ones, some awful ones. A serving absolutely needs to have Texas toast on the side! http://burgersdogspizza.com/?s=chicken+fried+steak&search=Search
Seriously? This was how it was done before the prepackaged stuff was even invented. The problem? The paper bags are prone to catching on fire.
Alternatively, go to the store in Paris called "Thanksgiving" that sells American groceries, including turkeys, sides, pumpkin and pecan pie. Even the stuff to make green bean hotdish! (Only 3.5 E for brown sugar - lol) Better yet, get invited to the parties at the Embassy or any American media outlet. http://www.thanksgivingparis.com/store.html
Try Dirty brand. Same factory, grease, taters, and workers....yet different!
my dad loved anchovies in any form. he'd even carry a tube of anchovy paste to pizzerias on occasion.
Grab a double and a side of rings. New Orleans old timey reliable.
I think I'd like to try the reubens!
Old timely Murrays in mpls used to have a great one; musso and frank in Hollywood too.
Hopefully will replace that pathetic perennial NOLA favorite Port of Call. Never understood their popularity.
Watching the game with good pals eating some tasty treats!
Umami? In N Out? Piffle. Bobcat Bite Santa Fe Green Chili Cheeeseburger. Yes!
But you got unlimited breadsticks!
A case of Pat LaFrieda beef for sure man!
Fried chips of garlic!
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/
Cafe del Rey, Marina del Rey. Cali.
You're forgiven for overlooking the tots at Keller's in Dallas.
Little Big Burger is overrated in every single category. Blech.
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.
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/
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/
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.
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.
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.
