What's Your State Burger?

Like most things, America's taste in cheeseburgers varies by state. This cool breakdown of the different burgers from different states provides a fascinating look at the burgers popular in other regions while allowing you to feel solidarity with your local burger lovers.

On behalf of all the Californians, let me say "go Animal Style In-N-Out burgers!"

I was thinking the same thing! If you ask most people around here, they'd say Dick's burgers (and most say they're better than In-and-Out).

I was a bit surprised with the Washington state burger. Big Tom's does a good job, but I would have thought Dick's Drive In in Seattle would have snagged the honor.

They got the burger right for New Mexico. But the place to get it wrong. You either get it at the famous Owl (where you get it served with pintos as an ap) or from Blake's. But Blake's uses Bueno brand Green Chile, which uses jalapeƱo to get the heat. If you want good green chile on your burger, you gotta get it from Sichler's.

It's super tasty. I think part of what makes it extra delicious is that the bun (by necessity) is fresh and house-made. They obviously can't just get them from a regular bread distributor since they're such a specialty item. So they make them right there on sight. Same for the gigantic patty. You can't just buy a box of prefab huge patties. So that (like all the other burgers there) is definitely all fresh never frozen hand formed meat.

Ed Walker's is in my hometown! Yay! I didn't see it mentioned in the article, but Ed Walker's other local claim to fame besides the gigantic burger and the terrific French Dip is that it's the only restaurant in the state with curbside beer. You just flash your lights and the waitress will happily bring you a beer right to your car. Arkansas has some seriously strict alcohol laws (we still have dry counties, no alcohol on Sunday,etc.), but Ed Walker's has been running continuously in the same location under the same license so incredibly long that its license to sell drive-in curbside beer right in your car is still grand-fathered in from back in the day before drinking in the car was seen as a pretty well universal no-no. You can sit in your car and have a gigantic burger and wash it down with an ice cold brew. :)
