Okay, there are plenty of lists like the one I’ve indicated in my post title, don’t you think? You can hardly surf the web without coming across one or more in your travels, am I right?
The reason is, those sorts of post titles and headlines get people’s attention, make them want to know. People love lists. They want to know what the best things are, what are the top five, or eleven, or six hundred and thirty-two somethings. They want that.

Wait … first a little context.
I love hamburgers. I’ve never considered myself to have a refined palate, but I’ve come to believe it might be more sophisticated than I thought. Still, I’m a basic person at heart, and one of my favorite foods of all is the good ol’ fashioned hamburger.

I can’t stress this enough; meat, in particular good old-fashioned red beef in most of its forms, was meant to be cooked over fire. Fire good, me like. Insert chest-thump here. It’s primal; it’s smoky; it’s delicious, dammit, and they are meant for each other, I tells ya.
So when I say “burger”, you think “charbroiled” or “cooked over flame”, okay?
Fine. Now, then. Here are my five best places to get a burger.
