The Great Burger Challenge Is On

with 6 comments

Recently, our own Matt Anderson laid down the gauntlet with a review of  the McCormick Café in Billings, MT in which he claimed to have had “the best hamburger and fries ever.”   I have decided to issue a challenge to The Graduate School to see if someone can top Matt’s claim of finding the “best hamburger ever”.

Last weekend, while attending a meeting of the Western Association of Graduate Schools in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, I visited Hudson’s Hamburgers.   Founded in 1907, this is the ultimate in griddle-cooked burgers and by definition is a “Hamburger Restaurant.”  The menu: hamburger, cheeseburger, pie.  Pickles and onions are optional and condiments consist of ketchup, spicy ketchup and mustard.   Too bad if you like fries, they don’t sell them.   Odd for Idaho, but they also don’t accept credit cards.   The burgers are pressed and cooked to order and in my opinion are among the best.   Highly recommended!

Where is your favorite burger?

  1. My wife and I hiked around Bear’s Lodge/Devils Tower for a day. In nearby Hulett, Wyoming, we found a place called Charlie T’s. Great griddle burgers with beer-battered onion rings.

  2. I am quite partial to the Toasted Frog’s Moroccan Lamb burger, but nothing really beats a good old Aussie-style burger loaded up with the usual and topped with a slice of beetroot and a fried egg. (Susan Caraher)

  3. While we can’t speak for the quality, this one may be hard to top for its sheer size. http://www.engadget.com/2009/10/22/burger-king-selling-a-windows-7-whopper-in-japan/
