Have You Seen My Ideal Burger in Boston?

I know, I know. some thread topics can get so overdone. Hamburgers have certainly had continual interest on this board, but here's the thing. After doing due diligence in reading the latest loooong threads, and the well- written blog by Rich Chudy ( ) I am not sure if I have found that my ideal burger exists here, aside from made by me at home (sans fries). Is Craigie's like this?(and is it bar only?) If I missed it in all my research, sorry, i'm far from perfect, and I appreciate your help.

My ideal burger( and fries) required elements:

-- excellent flavorful beef

--grilled over a fire, med rare
-- a bun but not brioche
-- available kosher dill pickles and onions (I would be willing to bring my own pickles and yes, i know how funny this sounds, but we CHs should never have to justify pickiness

-- thin crunchy non-frozen fries , preferably with garlic aioli

--(great crunchy non-frozen, dredged and not-battered onion rings would be a big bonus but likely impossible)

Have you seen this creature in a restaurant in the greater Boston area? Thanks so much.
(Don't bother with the sarcasm; it's so old.)
