Where can you go for an fantastic sit-down burger at peak hours without the hassle of a big crowd?

Arsenal makes a pretty damn good Kobe beef burger, wilafur declares.

The Shack makes a really good cheeseburger that’s more like what your uncle would grill up at a BBQ than what you find at the high-end burger bistros, sumo10 says. Their signature burger comes topped with a Louisiana hot-link or a Portuguese sausage.

Houston’s California burger is a very juicy burger that’s worth the rather high price, says ThatPat. 26 Beach makes a very good burger, too.

George Petrelli’s Steak House makes a great burger. For a chain restaurant, Islands has good burgers (check out their Hawaiian burger). Beechwoods does an awesome burger. And don’t miss the French flair of the burger and frites at Nook Bistro.

Avoid the weirdly topped burgers at Izzy’s Deli and stick with the regular cheeseburger and fries, Xericx warns.

The bar at the Gardens on Glendon makes a superior blue cheese burger on sourdough.

Get a burger cooked rare at San Francisco Saloon; it’s never crowded, always good, mollyomormon raves.

It might seem lame to some, but the Apple Pan’s hickory burger is worth checking out, jessiebelle insists.

If you’re more of a backyard BBQ warrior, Trader Joe’s aged steak burgers are amazing, Cinnamon adds.
