I was going to say Whataburger, but these other comments reminded me that Five Guy's have a damn good burger.

Mighty Fine is also pretty good.

Not McDonalds that is for sure.... Five Guys is nothing more than a grease rag disguised as a burger, so not there either. Since I live in New Jersey, I never had In-N-Out Burger, so that can't be included at all, either. Really, of the places I have been to, the best two are probably Wendy's and Burger King. I don't know what Burger King did in the last couple years, but they changed up their burgers and they taste pretty great overall. Unlike maybe a few years ago when they used to be worse than even McDonalds. I have been very impressed. The burgers are large, filling, and taste great. The fries still aren't that good though...

"Not McDonalds" is my favorite response thus far. lol. Hmm... there are a lot of good places to go out for a good hamburger, but home-cooked is cheaper. I know it's irrelevant, but true.

I think Cheeseburger Bobby's (similar to Five Guys, but better in my opinion) has pretty good burgers, but if that's not "fast food" enough then Dairy Queen, Checkers / Rally's, and Burger King aren't too bad to me. I haven't had Hardy's in a while so i don't remember how theirs are, and there aren't any In and Out Burgers in my area.

Home-cooked is cheaper AND tastes better usually. Unfortunately you have to go to the store, fire up the grill, put everything together yourself. Hitting a drive-through is just soo much faster. Its too damn convenient.

I'm going to classify "fast food" as any chain that allows you to drive up to get your food and has your food to you in under 10 minutes. As far as the big chains in the U.S. go I'd have to say Burger King, Carl's Jr/Hardee's and Culver's take the top three spots. Culver's is by far my favorite because everything is made-to-order, never frozen and they use quality ingredients/preparation. The result is the food looking like it does in their advertisements and I've yet to be disappointed.

Burger King also delivers a product that looks similar to their advertisements ( not smashed, sloppy, dripping mayo or grease, etc. ) while delivering good ( on rare occasions great or awful ) flavor/quality. Carl's Jr./Hardee's tastes better than Burger King and six or seven out of ten meals may taste slightly better than Culver's but the combination of their advertisements, costs and the inside of their restaurants ( being dirty; a problem Burger King has issues with too ) tend to keep me away.

I recently ate a burger for the first time at Five Guys. It was pretty darned good.

Burger Dive is also pretty great; but the burgers are a bit too messy to eat -- too big!! I love the sweet potato fries also.

Last excellent burger place in my area - b.good.

Five Guys does it for me. Hardee's (or its parent company Carl's Jr. if you live in the Western states) can be good too.

It depends for me. Five guys has some good burgers. What-a-burger is also good.

I'd say Five Guys, A&W, Johnny Rockets and a place called Fuddruckers where you get to put your own condiments.

As far as in the greater Seattle area, it's nearly impossible to beat Dick's, but I like Five Guy's as well. I haven't had a good burger in a very long time though as I prefer Teriyaki.

In N Out, if I want a burger with bacon or custom toppings Five Guys


You all are going to have to explain Five Guys to me as I find your championing of it in this thread to be very out-of-place. A restaurant that tells you to enjoy the peanuts they set on top of plastic trash bins full of trash from other customers, takes 20+ minutes to call you for your food when you are the only people ordering and then gives you your food COLD neither qualifies as "best" or "fast" because a burger should at least be served warm unless ordered otherwise. I had the misfortune of going to one with my mother and after looking into the chain I'll never eat at one again.

I agree with you about Burger King but not Wendy's although I do love their food. If you have a chance to drop into a Culver's give it a go because they too never freeze their meats/cheeses/fish/etc. Culver's won me over from Wendy's by being cleaner, friendlier and while the food usually takes five minutes to get to you ( it is all made-to-order and this keeps them really busy but thankfully they will bring it out to your car or to your table for you ) it has always been worth the wait. Their custard is great too; easily beating out Burger King/Dairy Queen's soft-serve. The best part about both Burger King and Culver's is the food they serve you actually looks like the food in their advertisements. Image related; a screenshot from their website. Their burgers/custard look a lot like they do in the image: compared to how they actually look the bun/lettuce look a little enlarged, the tomato/onion are redder ( but not by much; the veggies seem fresh when you eat ) and the custard in the image does not seem nearly as appetizing as it does in person.

Kid Valley is great.... a bit spendy... Dick's has been a bit too chewy for me lately. Red Robin but that's more a sit-down place.... Although you spend almost as much at McD's or BK as you do at Red Robin anymore.

Where I'm from we don't have nearly as much choices as the ones in America. I'm going to have to go with McDonalds due to ignorance

I agree... these burgers are the best freakin' burgers ever even though I never tried them before.
