Best burger in Denver? City Grill? (The place on Colfax by the Capitol building) And of course you've got Cherry Cricket!

In L.A., I'll give the best burger (fast food style) to The Habit. That place freaking rocks, and it make In and Out look like a pile of crap by comparison!

For Houston, hmm, I'll admit I love Whataburger for a quick fast-food burger, but that doesn't include the many very awesome "real restaurant" variations I've had out here!

Lark Burger, hands down my favorite. Not greasy, but still very very tasty.

Of course burgers are sandwiches.

Also, In N Out sucks. Well, it's not that it sucks exactly. It's better than any burger at McDonalds by a wide margin. It's just that it's no better than Wendy's, and certainly not better than just about any burger that costs more than $5.

Lark Burger is great but I did have a problem with them seriously under cooking my burger one time. I like a medium rare burger but this was still mooing.

There is one in the DTC, near Cool River Cafe. The parmesan truffle fries are some of the best fries I have ever had, and their burgers are very very good. Just the plain ol' Lark Burger with Cheese will keep you coming back there.

I think there might be one in boulder too.

Well okay, but what about hot dogs? Sideways sandwiches, not all that different from a kebab...

A crepe?

A wrap (yuck)?

A burrito (double yuck)?

Haha.

In N Out DOES suck! Only redeeming quality is the use of grilled, rather than raw onions on the burger as an option. Otherwise they're nothing to write home about.

I think Good Times is just as good or better than they are. There are several chains in California I think are better, and here in Texas, Whataburger is certainly better than In N Out!

Park Burger on South Pearl is pretty good too. And for a pretty good burger and some amazing alcoholic frozen delights I would say hBurger is up there on my list too..

My Brothers is a darn good burger, especially if your sauced.

I think the Cricket has the best burger in town though. City grill is really good too.

You can also get a darn good sandwich at Marcyzk's if your willing to pay a little more. There is also a really good little Italian deli on 38th and Kalamath.

I also used to love Fat Jack's when I lived near DU.

You know, I've never notice that Kalamath continues as a regular old city street north/west of I-25/Downtown. Had to google it.

So did Jason Street south of downtown get sacrificed to make way for Santa Fe as it entered the city? Or did Jason St just never exist down there?

Smile Encore Burger

Encore Burger!! Really good burger @ the old Lowenstein Theatre.

City Grill burger is also good as Glowrock and others have mentioned. City Grill has a offer @ restaurant.com where you can get a gift certificate valued @ $10 and pay $5. Great way to try out a new restaurant (burger) for only $5.

All you guys hating on In-N-Out outside of California, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah are just being bitter that there isn't an In-N-Out in your state.

Don't hate... They are fantastically delicious burgers and the over-hyped brand makes them addictive like cocaine.

To Cirrus: Z-Burger in DC. Two spots on Wisconsin Avenue. Check them out if you haven't already.

I grew up in California, I lived a year in Bakersfield only a mile from an In N Out, xseven. Not being bitter, I just don't care for their burgers that much! Addictive? They're over-hyped just like Apple products! It's all about the brand, it's not even about the freaking burger!

You did not just compare my iPhone to a fast food burger.

It has its issues, sure, what new technology doesn't...but there is nothing overhyped about the iPhone and the revolutionary change it brought to smart phones!

Yes, yes I did, Brent. Apple is to computers and music devices and phones as In N Out is to fast food burgers. Are they better than everyone else? Not really. Is their advertising amazing and are their followers so rabid that the become nearly indoctrinated into the corporate collective? Absolutely!

The way I view them is, one, it's some middle school era nostalgia for me, two, their burgers, while not the best, sure, are still pretty freaking good, particularly for a chain with pretty fast service, and three, it's just a habit; whenever I'm near one, I grab a double double or two.

I seem to have pretty bad issues every time I eat In-N-Out. I think that's where the "Out" come from. Still, the burgers are good for fast food. Give me a restaurant burger any day.

Enough about burgers, because I love Vietnamese sandwiches (banh mi). Toasted French baguette, butter spread (sometimes also pâté spread), cucumbers, fresh jalapeños, pickled carrot threads, cilantro, some damn good Asian deli-style grilled pork, with some soy sauce and Sriracha hot sauce.

That looks amazing. Any sandwich with fresh jalapeños is a win for me.
