Burgers: Top Five

Every now and then I like to create a little controversy with my blog… don’t know if this will be one of those times or not, but worth a shot.  

A couple months ago, while in Colorado Springs, I was able to take in a new Burger joint with my good friend Steve Burford.  Steve and I go all the way back to college where we enjoyed many an In-N-Out Burger (Double Doubles, of course).  Well, Steve introduced me to a new place: Five Guys.  This is no a “new place,” I believe it has East Coast roots.  Well, it was fairly new to the Springs.  It was wonderful, instantly cracking my “top 5” of fast food burgers.

I am proud to announce that Five Guys has made their way west and have landed in The Landing, in Renton.  In its first week at The Landing, Elisabeth and I have been there twice.  Re-affirming its “top 5” status.

So, without further ado, here is my current ranking of best Fast Food Burgers (qualifies as “fast food” only if you order and pick up at counter, no waiters/waitresses, and reasonable price comparisons to other fast food places).  Counting down from #5 to #1

So, what do you think?  Is your list different? 

Happy eating!

  1. I voted, but since I have never been to any of your top five, I should probably not have voted, because I marked, “A different place.” However not having been to any of the five you have listed how do I really know if I would mark a different place or not? Just thought I’d let you know the voting may be slanted somehow…

  2. sadly I can only say I remember eating @ In N Out. But 5 guys sounds amazing, so lets go get some next week when I am up in Kent.

  3. Have you tried Sonic yet? We stopped at a new one in Medford over the weekend…yum! I hear a new Sonic just opened last month on the South Hill of Puyallup and soon others will be opening around the Puget Sound area. Worth checking out, for sure!
