Thanks to Antonio Ruiz and several others for sending me this picture…they naturally assumed it was EXACTLY the kind of burger I would like – and you know what? It IS!
And so is this!
Time For A Cheeseburger!
As we near the end of 2015, I got to thinking about something I love: burgers! And when I think about them – well, I think about this:
People share all sorts of wild burgers with me, and I eat some of them as well – as you are about to see!
I have chosen some of of my favorite burgers to share with you today – to honor those restaurants who have made 2015 a towering burger success!
One of Chicago’s best burgers was recently called America’s too – I will introduce you to this burger of beauty, as well as some of America’s other best burgers as well.
First however, I would like to honor myself with a burger I created many years ago…
Behold The French Fry Burger!
My favorite burger of all time – I created it in high school, when I worked at Herfy’s drive-in in Seattle. It combines all the things I love: it’s a cheeseburger burger topped with fries, then melted cheddar cheese and a dollop of tartar sauce!
When it comes to burgers, all taste combination bets are off!
And Elvis agrees!
So does Jimmy Page!
Elvis wasn’t the only superstar who liked to bite into a big burger…
Well, the Led Zeppelin Guitarist seems a bit “cautious” when it comes to his burgers, but with this kind of musical muscle behind it, the cheeseburger is the clearly the “food of the gods”!
And That Means Dick’s!
Growing up in Seattle, THIS was my favorite taste sensation:
Talk about all-american burgers! The GREAT Seattle burger stand known as Dick’s Drive-In serves up a burger that is simple – and delicious!
Dick’s Drive-In is fast, friendly, and a great Seattle institution – so the next time you are in the Emerald City, this is the place for you!
And if you need a BIGGER BURGER, but still want to honor Dick’s Drive-In, then try this!
Welcome To The Lunchbox Laboratory!
Seattle’s terrific burger bar “The Lunchbox Laboratory” serves up a “super-sized” homage to Dick’s “Deluxe” burger…

I go to Dick’s every single time I go to Seattle…and when I’m in Chicago, I head to a place with their own unique homage:
The “Big Mack Daddy”!
Big ‘n’ Little’s serves up a huge homage to the Big Mac, and as you can see, they tower over the original! This relaxed eatery was featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives”, and they are always packed with fans of stuff like their deep-fried cheeseburger:
Big ‘n’ Little’s also makes an homage to the “Big Mac” that puts McDonald’s to shame – it’s a giant burger that packs a ton of flavor – fresh ingredients, secret sauce and delicious double patties:
They also offer great tacos, shrimp and chips, and so much more! Read more about it here:
And finally, time to get your “Slayer” on at Kuma’s!
My friend Chris is staring into the face of “The Slayer”, a monstrous plate of burger madness…Kuma’s in Chicago serves it up!
Kuma’s was just voted one of America’s best burgers! They all have a heavy metal theme, which is why I love them so much – because that attitude infuses everything at the restaurant!
Their burgers have aggressive, loud flavors and signs warn you NOT to ask for a change in music – it’s their choice!
As I said, a new national poll placed Kuma’s near the top of America’s best burgers…

Let me know your favorite burger of the year!
