    Time for a new track.

    Options haphazardly thrown together from what was mentioned in the other thread plus a couple more I could think of.

    I'm not particularly a fan of burger places where it costs like $14 for a double burger, fries, and a drink. Even if they are good they aren't double the price good.

    There's this place in Surprise called Jim's Burgers and Eggs which is pretty good. Fries are a little lacking though.

    Lennys is another local option.

    I voted five guys but you should also consider adding Fuddruckers. They are probably my number 2.

    Lennys is legit too, but the chuckbox reigns supreme.

    I rarely eat burgers anymore. Just lost my taste for them. My new favorite fast food place is Salad and Go. Greek salad with steak on top. Had that for lunch today. Steak probably keeps it from being very healthy but it has to taste good for me to eat it and that's a damn good meal!

    Smashburger isn't bad as long as you don't eat one at Chase Field.

    We have a Wayback Burger locally near me. Apparently, they haven't made it to AZ yet (perhaps a franchise opportunity for someone?) but there are some in Cali.

    Good burgers and shakes and not too overpriced. Although I've never tried one, they do have a triple-triple (yes 9 patties) for those who would like to attempt it. They occasionally have competitions on who can eat one the quickest (blech!); in fact, I think they are having one next week.

    Like Sniper, I've gotten away from burgers, but I'll still have 1 or 2 a month, so if I'm gonna have one might as well be a gourmet (pricier) option.

    Now, I did like the ostrich burgers at Fuddruckers (when they were available). I haven't been to one since I lived in NJ (about 9 years ago), but they are opening a new location locally on a road I use on my return home from work, so I may switch to them for 1 of my 2 burgers in those "burger-heavy" months. Apparently nearby locations have started offering Elk burgers as one of their exotic options, so I'll definitely try that out at some point (once they open).

    I'm not really a huge burger fan myself, but I eat them more often than I care to admit. With my change in employment status as of today, I'll have more time and energy to actually cook regular meals instead of picking up fast food on the way home from work "because to hell with it I'm tired."

    I do occasionally enjoy making a good homemade burger though. Preferably with at least 50% lamb as the meat. I've been over pure beef (not just for burgers either) for at least 5-6 years.

    The Habit replaced In-n-Out for me. Even more so since they just built one 2 1/2 miles from my house. :D

    If I'm going to have a big chunk of beef I'd rather it be a ribeye or some beef ribs. You can keep the bun. I'm serious about the Greek Salad with steak on top at Salad and Go though. Never thought I'd eat at a freaking salad place but it's legit.

    There's a Greek place at 43rd ave and Thunderbird called king gyro that has the best Greek salad ever. Everything else is amazing there too.

    I love burgers but apparently I'm not on top of my game as I never tried any of those restaurants besides In N' Out. In N' Out is my go to when I'm starving and want a burger.

    But lately I've been making more of my own burgers at home. It is significantly cheaper and I can make it exactly how I want it. Very simple to make.. 80/20 ground beef, pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, let it marinate for awhile in the fridge, sit it out a little bit before cooking, and then throw it in a pan and cook it for a few minutes. Sauté some onions in the leftover grease and dry those when cooked. Finally warm the bun in the pan and put it all together with some cheese, lettuce, pickles, etc..

    This is the place I was thinking of, that we used to go to when I worked near Metrocenter in the mid oughts (I-17/Glendale location). I was like "Freddy's? it sounds like that but that's not it..."

    That same job was right across from the Fuddruckers at I-17/Dunlap, and I had my share of ostrich burgers (c'mon I live in Chandler, it should be our official burger)

    That intrigues me, and I really should walk over there from work more often.
