Best burger and fries in the East Bay?

So there are lots of threads about where to get a great burger in the East Bay -- the departed Eccolo, 900 Grayson, Cafe Rouge, Mua, Lukas are all mentioned. But where can you get the best burger and really good fries together? I love the fries at Wood Tavern, and their burger is good, but when I want a burger, I want it on a bun, not baguette. I loved the burger at Eccolo (does anyone know where any of their chefs have landed?), but did not love their fries -- my ideal fries are slightly thicker than the McDonalds type, not shoestring or steak fries. I've had some good experiences with Christopher's Burgers, which I think has gotten better lately, but I don't love their fries, they have a strange aftertaste. Is Luka's the best bet? Or is there another great burger/fries combo hiding out there in the East Bay?

Answers in enough time may determine my lunch today, we'll see.
