great burgers

I'm pretty new to town, and haven't yet found that great burger.

Have you read James Villas' essay on hamburgers in "American Taste"? That's what I'm looking for. I know it still exists.

I like the quality of the meat at Boston Blackie's, but I find the bun and fries to be pretty weak.

P.J. Clark's had slightly better fries and bun in my opinion.

Ed Debevic's I didn't care for at all.

The Ms. tells me that Cavanaugh's is pretty good, but the cigarette smoke is so strong in there that I won't go back.

I actually find Steak and Shake to be pretty good, but we live in the south loop.

Any suggestions?
