Well it is not the dog, (at least for me) I don’t know if you can boil it down to one thing, its more of a category. My first entry to the MBF category is… The Hamburger…

Dress it up, dress it down, you can find it in the most expensive of restaurants at the cheapest of places and you can find it in the dreams of most hungry guys. Now that is utility. Here are some of the best places to get them and why:

1. Lion’s Tap, MN – to all you NC readers you are missing out, this is their specialty and for good reason. it is a plain burger ketchup, Mustard and pickles, but it is just plain good.

2. Five Guy’s NC/MD – To all my MN readers, you are really missing out. Not only does this establishment boast incredible burgers, but it also has the best fries, easy, also it has the most comprehensive list of toppings, fried mushrooms and fried onions…mmm

3. Culver’s, MN/WI – Technically It is fast food, but it is great food, not a huge fan of the fries, but the great burger overcomes this fact… bonus…they serve frozen custard!

Over-rated – in/out burger, not saying it was bad, just not flying to California for it. Plus I have only had 1 or 2, you need at least 5 to make an informed decision!

What are your top choices???
