According to Bon Appetit the best hamburger in america is found at Bobcat Bite cafe on Old Santa Fe Trail east of Santa Fe New Mexico. They not only butcher their own beef they raise it as well (grass and corn fed).
If Thomas is not still being a vegetable when he gets here we will drive up their and pig out.

@dyslexia,
Sounds good, but I think the best hamburger in America was at Harvey's house..

@dyslexia,
The secret of your meat isnt what you raise it on, but how you kill it. Death must come as a complete surprise to the beef. It must be in the throes of enjoying a final morsel of food when it is lightly killed without stirring up lactic acid in the musculature. Otherwise its tougher and bitter.

There was a little burger joint in Newark Ohio that made the best bacon cheeseburger with peanut butter on top. It was a bar near the OCF plant

I'm pretty sure the best hamburger can be found at Walt's on South West Street in Wichita.

There was a little hamburger stand about 20 miles outside Fargo, ND about 25 years ago that made the best burger I ever had. It may not be there anymore. I bought three for the road.

@NickFun,
Steve Buscemi was murdered near there in a wood chipper. They closed it down shortly thereafter.

@Linkat,
They are in 4 states now (CA, NV, AZ, UT) so you have even more opportunity.

The best hamburger I've ever had consistently was at the Berkeley Co-op's Walnut Creek store's lunch counter back in the 60's and 70's. In and Out burgers are a distant second.

I do not believe the In and Out Burger merits any discussion in this thread.

Same here. Make them thick; cook them slow - all the way through.

Sometimes best hamburgers have to do with where you had the first one you liked, and a kind of sentimental value - so I'll say one of the best for me was at the old Friar's coffee shop in Santa Monica. Simple fairly big burger with lettuce and tomato and pickles on a toasted bun that in retrospect was better than those mostly disintegrating things available now, the key being the thousand island dressing that up until then I'd never heard of. I'd probably roll my eyes at it now that I can distinguish really good meat, garden tomatoes in season, bla bla bla. But then it was fantastic.

I need to try the burgers at Indigo Crow, bet they're good.
