As a burger lover and a pizza lover, I've always liked the idea of some sort of burger-pizza hybrid, but it never really works according to plan. As our Home Slice Adam can tell you, designing a good hamburger pizza is no easy feat (I've yet to see a successful one anywhere, and pizza burgers rarely fare well either. This one, which is not quite a pizza burger, does a little better, I think.
Until last week, you could get the T-Rex Burger—a cheeseburger featuring nine quarter-pound patties and nine slices of cheese—at just one Wendy's location in Manitoba, Canada. Not wanting to look like they condoned the 3,000 calorie meat tower, Wendy's took the semi-secret item off the menu after someone posted about the burger on Reddit. But nothing (aside from common sense) is stopping you from combining three triple cheeseburgers.
In Portland, Brunchbox serves burgers topped with everything from fried eggs to sauerkraut and spam. AHT contributor Adam Lindsley and I teamed up to take down two burgers: a fairly classic cheeseburger with grilled cheese sandwiches standing in for buns, and a Big Mac clone.
We all know how seductive a plate of poutine can be, right? You know, that Canadian late-night dish of fresh fries smothered with squeaky cheese curds and hot, meaty gravy? After a few beers it beckons to you, seduces you. A cheese-clad goddess enrobed in gravy, ready to nip your hangover in the bud. Heck, even without the beer goggles poutine is a pretty tough mistress to turn away. So what happens when your poutine employs her crafty wiles on an unsuspecting burger? The Poutine Burger emerges.
Hopscotch's delicious, flavor-rich burger is accentuated by uniformly excellent toppings, but it's brought to a new level of beef-vana thanks to a slab of griddled tongue.
Gallo Blanco's chile-topped burger is fine if you want a sandwich where beef is one of many elements, but don't get it if you're hankering specifically for a burger.
A prolific Los Angeles restaurateur delivers a tasty Korean-inspired fusion burger at his large-scale gastropub on Fairfax Boulevard.
What's better than a burger and a beer among friends? Lots of burgers and beers among friends, with a cutthroat competition to boot! So went the Eye Heart SF Burger Brawl, which went down in all of its beefy glory this past Saturday at Fort Mason.
You could argue that an exceptional burger was programmed into The General Muir's DNA from the very beginning. Both burgers here are so good that you'll find yourself scrabbling after all the bits and pieces of shrapnel. Just remember to add the poutine.
We asked our crew of beer experts for their favorite burger-friendly beers, the ultimate pairing for a summer day.
If you're in the mood for an old fashioned, flame-broiled burger and a view of the Milwaukee River, John Hawk's Pub might be for you.
Despite that my burger fell apart, it tasted good enough that I'd go back for more. I just hope my next burger has a better crust.
You might balk at the price of the Wright Bar's burger—nearly $16—but considering the fact that the burger is more than large enough to share, comes with a bucket-sized portion of fries, and you get to eat it while staring, slack-jawed, at some gorgeous scenery, it's a bargain.
Two weeks ago, Universal Studios Orlando announced the opening of a new Simpsons-themed area later this summer. While much of the area is still under construction, Fast Food Boulevard—home to Springfield favorites like Krusty Burger, Moe's Tavern, the Frying Dutchman, and more—opened last Saturday. Inside the Magic has loads of photos and videos from opening day.
This Saturday, June 8, San Francisco burger fiends can try burgers from over 20 restaurants and food trucks (including AHT's own Wes Rowe) in one spot at the San Francisco Burger Brawl.
A fusillade of ingredients make for a messy, overcomplicated cheeseburger at Bon Vivant.
Maison Harlem is fast becoming my favorite neighborhood hang. The food—mostly classic Paris-style bistro fare—is nothing innovative, but solid enough to earn my money. The space is warm, a friendly neighborhood bar with worn-in tables and bar seats—the kind of space you'd expect in, say, the West Village, minus the oppressive crowds and loud music. And they've got a killer burger to boot.
If you want to get down on a no-nonsense, appetite-slaying burger dripping with sauce and piled with toppings at a price that rivals fast food chains, Lobby's is a worthy spot to do so. Just make sure to grab a wad of napkins before you dig in.
Burger King Puerto Rico celebrated its 50th anniversary by treating 50 of its most loyal customers to the Hands-Free Whopper Holder. Because, damn it, you shouldn't have to deny yourself the pleasures of eating a Whopper just because your hands are tied up playing a guitar/giving someone a tattoo/walking a pack of dogs/painting your nails/riding a bike/etc. The Whopper-eating never has to stop! Never!
