Greasy Spoons, The Best Burgers

 

I know we have a lot of the chain hamburger places but some of the best are from little greasy spoon mom and pop places. I would like to see a project of a collection of the best burger joints we have found. I'm specially intersted in AZ and So Cal. and So NV as we take motorcycle trips just to go for burgers. I'm new and don't know how to create yet but would be willing to learn if there is enough interest in this.

PS...5/28/2008
Again you don't know how much I appreciate all the interest I get with this thread, but as Miss POI and I have asked, please be helpful when submitting your suggestions. Please include the following:

NAME:
lon.(exp)-123.456789
lat.(exp)98.765432
ADDRESS:
CITY:
STATE:
ZIP: opitional but helpful
PHONE: opitional but helpful

We are up to almost 80 locations and 800 downloads. Thanks. And again I couldn't do it without all your help....Harpo

Ask and you shall receive: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/12350

Now would you like to head up this project or would you like someone to volunteer to put in the locations that are about to come flooding into this thread?

Nothing like being volunteered to do a job. I guess it would be a learning experience as long as I have someone to turn to for help.

Try these 2 out in AZ. They are called the Heart Attack Grill:

440 W. Warner Rd, Tempe, AZ 85284
6185 W Chandler Blvd, AZ 85226

Or you can always go to Islands - the burgers there are fantastic.

Heart Attack Grill

I went there Fri night (Chandler Blvd) and they are only open right now from 11:00 am to 3:00pm. Soon to have full bar and open at nights. Needless to say being closed I have tried one yet but it's on my list.... Thanks

Remember lets not kill our POI file managers

Lets make sure that we are doing the leg work for the members that are managing these files.

Please submit all the info including the Longitude, Latitude, address, phone number along with the name of the establishment. All they should be responsible for is putting the data into the file.

Miss POI

Thanks

I've been google mapping myself to death coming up with the coord. The problem is I'm getting hungry for a burger doing this... LOL Going to be a road trip this weekend.

--
Nuvi 750 And a 2006 Star Venture between my legs.

Hmmmmm..... Guess I should get some coordinates

There are a couple here in Chico called Burger Hut. There was only one for many years but they have finally opened another one here as well. I think they may have a third one in a neighboring town but that's it. Good burgers and a great topping bar so you can build them however you like. Perhaps I should grab some coordinates and post them along with the addresses.

Five Guys!

cool

Might want to combine with this file... this is not a big chain. Started out as one store... however, they have expanded significantly in the DC, MD, VA area. FANTASTIC burgers and fries!!

Great Burger

The idea behind this was to find really great burgers. I wanted to stay away from the multi state chains. But if you have a nice local resturant that has a great burger that you feel is worthy of the list, by all means post or send all the info.
Name, Address, Phone, lon. and lat. I know every town has to have that best kept secret when it comes to burgers.

I can't wait to check some of these places out!

Great Hamburgers

Check out Tommy's in California. In 1946, Tommy Koulax introduced Los Angeles to a hamburger with gusto. Fifty-four years later, L.A's love affair with his chili-topped creation is still going strong.

This place is no greasy spoon, more of a trendy Village cafe but it's specialty is burgers, really big burgers here is a link to their site and you can decide whether is qualifies http://www.bar89.com/index.htm
and they have the coolest restrooms.

Local chain?

What about a locally owned "chain" with 3 locations in two counties? If that qualifies, I'll track down the coordinates and post them.

The Worlds Best Hamburgers

grin OK I know everyone except the vegaterians have there, drive out of the way to get to there favorite hamburger joint. With pushing 70,000 members I need imput on your favorite hamburger joint. Great fries and Milkshakes are a plus to. We are NOT looking for national chains but if they are locally owned and have a couple of places in your area and you feel they are worthy of the praise please submit the info. The little Mom and Pop places sometimes have the best food. All I need is the Name, Address, Phone Number, lon, and lat. If you have comments about the place include them. You can email me the info thru contact thru the site. I'm checking out some of the submissions for my area this weekend... Thanks to all that have submitted so far.

Ali-Baba

I'm guessing the Steak in a sack is a burger and the big questions is... Are they good? Again thanks for all the submissions.

Nuvi 750 And a 2006 Star Venture between my legs.

Yes ... very good!

the burgers and atmosphere are both great!

Steak-in-a-sack

Yea, it's pretty much a burger in a pita with a middle eastern flair.

And YES, they ARE that good!

It's owned and operated by Pat and Gay Harrison.
Opened in 1970 on Perry Street then moved in 1995 to
it's present location. It's a one of a kind hole in
the wall type place that originally served only
hamburgers and cheeseburgers. They've added breakfast sandwiches, hot dogs and ham sandwiches in recent years. The dogs aren't good enough to add to the hot dog POI, but the burgers are outstanding.

This place sells only one pound hamburgers. They are so good, Oprah went there and showed it on her show. You would drive right by it, because it looks like dive.
