    Default Speaking of good burgers...

    Last week we were out shopping and on a whim, stopped at a Fudruckers for
    lunch. I had been to one years ago but must not have been paying attention
    because the food we had was excellent.

    So we went back this weekend. 1/3 pound burger on a fresh roll (baked on
    premises), fries and a soda for $8.95 Substitute onion rings for 50 cents.

    They will cook the burger any way you want it from medium-rare to well done
    and the burger was very juicy. A large fixings bar with the usual fixings
    and jalapenos, pico de gallo and other condiments. The onion rings were
    really good!

    I don't know how widespread their stores are, but if you get the chance, try
    them out.

    We had one nearby for a while and I agree completely; excellent hamburgers
    and the fixings bar was a trip! I used to get the fries and a little container of
    their jalapeno cheese sauce as a dip for the fries, minimal stuff on the burger
    but I recall always being able to get a nice slice of ripe tomato, crispy lettuce
    and good onion, and a surprisingly nice fresh salsa. I guess I miss them, eh?

    I ordered my burger medium and it did come a perfect medium. I
    found the meat a little tasteless and came to the conclusion that I
    really like the taste of cooked ground beef than the somewhat pink
    stuff. The meat was not exactly steak tartare quality.

    So next time I order it medium-well and hope it has more of a char
    on it.

    Fuddruckers is not fast food. They may serve the same food, but
    it's not fast. Besides, the little poor kids would be bathing in
    the free cheese sauce.

    In the mid 1990s one came to town. Burgers were OK but I didn't like the way
    the system worked.

    I remember you'd pick your size and doneness then have to stand around while
    they cooked it, then you had to dress it then sit down.

    What they should've done is speed up the process a little is give you a small
    paper plate so you could assemble your fixings while the burger cooked. That
    AND have visual LED number units around the seating area for when your burger
    was ready, like the "take a number" display at most deli counters so you
    didn't have to mill around on your feet, waiting.

    That was then. I don't know if they changed all that. It, since I don't know
    when, became a Border's book store.

    There is one in Austin near where I'm getting my current Physical
    therapy treatments, but I've only been there once since mom passed.
    Good memories and good food.

    I've got late appointments next week with the McKenzie therapist so may
    have to remedy that.

    Only trouble is, I hate to eat out by myself. :-(

    Wonder if I can get sis' out of bed early enough for once?

    We had one here 20 years ago. I think there may still be one in Glendale or
    Pasadena. The burgers were OK. Fresh but bland. If you want great burgers
    you have to go on a burger safari and try every little hole in the wall
    burger joint you can find. We have some burger stands here that make
    incredible burgers but you have to go find them, they don't find you.

    [Freddie Fuddrucker's Burgers]

    I've only been to one Freddie's and enjoyed the experience.

    The best burger, hands down, I've ever had was from Father's Office in Santa
    Monica. The beauty of Father's Office (and charm): It's a harsh egalitarian
    democracy - open seating for all - regardless of who you are or aren't.
    Celebrities stand and wait their turn with Joe Pleabe. I found the
    experience of eating at Father's Office worth going once but don't enjoy
    Attitude from servers.

    FO cooked SWMBO's burger just the way she likes it (without turning it into
    an oversized hockey puck.) The burgers are great but you really have to
    enjoy Floor Trading, Car Sales, or Insurance Adjusting to fit in.

    Even better than Fat Burger? I love The Pantry for this reason; incredible
    burgers and it doesn't matter if you are Barbara Streisand, you wait in line
    like everyone else. Same for the Apple Pan. I don't know how they make
    that hickory BBQ sauce but I would kill for the recipe.

    I could learn to love them for a terrific burger. I must admit I do adore a
    great burger.

    The best burgers I've ever eaten in a restaurant were at Heck's Cafe in
    Ohio City near downtown Cleveland. They built their reputation on them,
    although their menu is now extensive. No matter what I've ordered there, I
    have never been disappointed.

    The baest no chain burger in the world can be had at "the Smokehouse" on
    Telegraph Ave, just across the borderline from Oakland, two blocks north of
    Alcatraz Ave. in Berkeley, California!

    Don't know what grade of meat they used but, it's deliciousness sustained
    me for years! :9

    <snicker> When I'm at work or home, I do prefer to eat alone. At work
    with a book or at home, in front of the computer. :-)

    It's eating out at a restaurant I prefer to share. But then, I/we only
    eat out maybe 1/2 dozen times per year at most.

    Most of my dining out alone is done at lunchtime. I probably average
    once a week. I'm willing to spend a bit to get a good lunch, and
    almost
    never eat fast food; most of my co-workers try to minimize the amount
    they spend. It doesn't leave us a lot of commonality.

    Dinner out is almost always with my husband, maybe every other week
    or every third week, on average. I leave the book at home when I'm
    out
    with him.

    Frudgies has come up here before but never to much praise. In
    September Chicago Magazine rated the 30 best burgers here and some
    from the burbs. No mention of Fuddies. I'd prefer most of these over
    fud's any day.

    I've never enjoyed Fat Burger but constantly read "high praise" for
    them. I've been to the Pantry but it was... <sigh> Many, many Bizbees
    ago; it is was an interesting experience, as you noted.

    Be assertive, in an arrogant sort of way, and you'll be fine. Just
    know they don't allow ketchup or other condiments.
