I agree that the bun is secondary but impotent is a little strong. More bun than burger is always a mistake as in an unheated cheap bun.

The best burger I have ever had was made with badger spleens. It was amazing.

Best burger I ever had was a Mesquite grilled green-chili bacon and cheese burger at the Hidden Valley Inn in Tucson - man that was fantastic.

Red Robin has excellent burgers for a chain BTW....

I would rate the Five Guys cheeseburger - Worth Driving 10 miles for.

Gooey goodness. Nice flavor. Like In/Out all ingredients are fresh. (Or would appear to be)
The patty itself seems to be loosely packed and squished on the griddle. I've read
this is the way to do things but have not tried it. At $5.69 is a lot more than a Double Double, but it's also a fair bit bigger.

The fries as noted arrive by the pound. Thank dog I didn't order a large, I left about
1/2 the "small" order behind. I thought they were ok, but I like mine more crispy,
next time I'll ask for that. I assume they do that just like I/O does.

All in all, Five Guys is light years ahead of your Burger Kings and McDonalds junk. I know, that's not shocking.

Is it "better" than a Double Double? I would say it ranks very very close if not tied. Im talking flavors now.
I will have a D/D later today or tomorrow to compare. Hey, it's for science right?

Five Guys is very worthy.

And now to wash down that burger, the one lager to rule them all.

Yah, gotta agree with you there. I can only imagine how much better
it would be with cheddar or swiss. Or both.

YES, extremely important for a great tasting grilled burger. Although, I even disagree with the 'squishing on the griddle' part. Here's what I do, and I usually get great comments about my grille burgers. Tear off a chunk of ground meat, push lightly one time with your hand to flatten to the correct thickness, and then STOP PLAYING WITH THE MEAT. I don't care if the damn thing isn't round. Place on grill, and do no more mashing/squishing.

For my next cookout, I'm thinking about grinding my own hamburger during the cookout. A simple hand meat grinder, and a mix of select beef, pork, and maybe a touch of lamb.

Cool man! We've batted around the idea of pub crawling Santa Rosa again.
That pub was freakin' AWESOME!

If you need to stop on the way between LA and Vegas Mad Greek in Baker makes an excellent burger and the best strawberry shake evah. Do *not* order the large unless you're splitting it. Order the fries crispy. Their Greek food is just average.

Yepper.

Lag has limited hours, so we'll need to figure that into it. But this needs to happen.
