What’s on your Burger Bucket List?

I’ve spent days thinking about which Burger joints should be on my Burger Bucket List. The “List” includes those must eat at Burger Joints that you haven’t made it to and surely need to before your end of days. I have George Motz of Hamburger America to thank for turning me onto most of these. Tell me about your list, my list is below:

1) Minetta’s Tavern in New York, NY

2) Kuma’s Corner in Chicago, IL

3) The Billy Goat Tavern & Grill in Chicago, IL

4) Louis’ Lunch in New Haven, CT

5) The Meers Store in Meers, OK

6) Solly’s Grille in Glendale, WI

7) Dyers Restaurant in Memphis, TN

8) Holeman & Finch in Atlanta, GA

9) Bobcat Bite in Sante Fe, NM

10) Apple Pan in Los Angeles, CA

    Thomas, I'm not interested in eating at the Billy Goat because I think it might be an amazing burger but more because of the history associated with the place.

    # 7 Dyers: Oooooh. Every time I see them on food network I start drooling. And then I start thinking about all that grease and wondering if the fried burgers could really be that good and how greasy they must be. And then I drool….

    I've been trying and trying to eat at Kuma's, but the wait is crazy. They had a stand in Lollapalooza this year and the crowd seemed bigger than on some of the stages.
    Billy Goats is a very cool place, the hamburger is ok, just make sure that you are on the original one and order a Schitz on draft
