My top burger choices would be either Christian's Tailgate or Mel's
Ill second these choices.
Christians has a good selection of beers on tap and great onion rings. The only problem with Mels is they have many other great options like fried catfish and chicken fried steak. Im one of those people who have been saying for years im gonna eat that MEGA MELS burger. One day i will!!!!
Rockwells Tavern, PO's, 5 guys and Smashburger. This would be my order of preference of the places tried so far.
Rockwells Tavern: Awsome burgers. I noticed some of the customers just order 1 burger and share. The buns were awsome. Oh ya, did I mention 140+ bottled beers available.
PO's: About 100 yards north of Rockwells is PO's. Great burgers. I tried the Hot Bob. bacon, cheddar cheese and jalapeno peppers. Service was great.
5 guys: well cooked, juicy burgers with plenty of options. Fair price when compared to becks prime etc. I would probably rate this the highest of the chains based on value. Hint: order 1 larger order of fries for every 4 people.
