My wife's friend is visiting tomorrow and wants a really good burger. My gas grill is down so Chez KenWritez is limited to fried/oven-cooked and In & Out is always my go-to burger, but I wonder--am I missing out on other burger happiness here? (The only thing about In & Out I dislike is the fast-food plastic booth ambiance.)
What do other area 'hounds recommend? Holes-in-the-wall welcome.
