The Cheesecake Factory has over 200 different menu items, several of them burgers. I tried three different options: a classic burger, a Skinnylicious burger, and one topped with deep-fried macaroni and cheese balls and cheese sauce.

Sea Rocket Bistro's burger may feature a half-pound of 100 percent grass-fed beef, but the main attraction is the bacon jam on top.
Wendy's new Son of Baconator burger is a scaled-down version of their original Baconator, made with two smaller patties, two slices of cheese, and four strips of bacon.
The 'Merica burger from Slater's 50/50 features a 100 percent bacon patty, topped with bacon cheese, "bacon island" dressing a sunny side up egg, and (as if that wasn't enough) two strips of bacon.
In Coronado, Leroy's Kitchen + Lounge has created a flavorful burger made from 100 percent brisket that's ground fresh daily, in house.
The Red Door's brunch burger is one elaborate beast that comes together surprisingly well. Bacon, cheese, LTO, a fried egg, and Hollandaise sauce top a 1/2-pound patty.
Burger King has released two new Whoppers for a limited time only: the Texas BBQ Whopper and the Carolina BBQ Whopper, along with sweet potato fries. Only one of these is worth your time.
Del Taco's burger offerings haven't changed in years, but you can make a few new versions using existing menu items.
American-run burger and steakhouse The Bird claims to make Berlin's highest-quality hamburgers, and seems to have the credentials to back it up. But there's trouble in paradise.
The prime burger at Morton's is no double-cut filet mignon, but at less than half the price, it's a reasonable compromise.
The burger they serve at San Francisco's Park Tavern is the same as the one on the menu across town at Marlowe. Did San Francisco need the same exact burger at different location? Absolutely.
A duck egg, wild boar bacon, and fried shallots top this premium burger from The Lion's Share (with a premium price to match).
Burgermeister occupies a building under the train tracks near U-Bahnhof Schlesisches Tor formerly used as a public restroom. Yeah, don't ask. The point is, now it's a damn fine hamburger restaurant.
Dubious claims of TV fame, bland burgers, and boring fries make for a disappointing experience at BGR The Burger Joint.
Sometimes mini burgers can feel a bit too dainty to satisfy the primal urges of a burger lover. But with the multiple versions on the slider offered at The Sycamore in San Francisco, the result is a chance to a little variety to your dinner.
The three course prix fixe lunch special at Jsix in downtown San Diego is a pretty spectacular value.
Prather Ranch Meat has plenty of reasons to celebrate its own product. Their meat finds its way into some of the best burgers in San Francisco. So we met the opening of American Eatery, a restaurant designed to showcase Prather Ranch's meat, with considerable excitement. And then we had our hopes dashed by a cook who left our burgers on the grill for way too long.
A new burger joint, Bunz, has opened in an unusual location: the on-site restaurant of a Days Hotel in Hotel Circle.
Rally's seasoned fries are tasty when hot, but the burgers? Not so much.
San Francisco's Slow Club serves a consistently tasty hamburger. Which is why I was so surprised to discover they'd switched out their very nice bun...for an English muffin. Turns out they'd simply run out on that day. Disaster averted! But an abject lesson in why we should not overlook the humble hamburger bun.
