What is better and why?
(in my opinion the better is Shake Shack, simple menu but original, tasty, fatty... ORGASM)
Here in the UK we have the usual American franchise bullshit like McDonald's KFC burger king or we have local burger vans which serve nasty cheap horse burgers mostly aimed at fat fuckwits who think that shit tastes good, that shit only ever tastes good at 3 in the morning after drinking too much in club.
Best burgers are either homemade or in decent restaurant.
Value of the burger
>In n Out or Cookout
I love Shake Shack, but it's just too expensive to eat their regularly. So depending what part of the country I'm in, In n Out or Cookout are my favorites.
The best burger I've ever had is from "The Chuckbox"
2nd best would have to be In n' Out burgers,
>you've been to the wrong Cookouts
I've only been to one that was near my school in Virginia. I drove my drunk friends there at 1am on dozens of occasions, but I just thought their burgers tasted like a meat-flavored sponge with pepper every time and my friends and I stopped getting them and went for the bbq or chicken instead every time.
Small family-owned locations, not corporate burger giants that taste awful. Think your local friendly pizza place, but for burgers instead. Some of them are drive-ins where you get served while seated in a car if you don't want outdoor bench seating..
Best I've ever had was from some shitskin running a food cart at a fair. He grilled all the burgers in the morning, then let them sit in their own grease in one of those huge metal tins hot dog carts use to keep the dogs in hot water. Disgusting as fuck in theory, but god damn that was some juicy burgers.
Best big burger chain is Wendy's.
Five Guys is good but expensive.
Local place called David's Burgers is similar to Five Guys but just edges it out, IMO. It's my go-to now
I hated shake shack at first. Then I realized I'm not poor and can afford $12 burger and cheese fries. Made the mistake of ordering a shake the first time I went, how do you have "shake" in your restaurant name but fail to make a good shake?
Stick with the double shack burger and cheese fries and it'll be worth the money.
