Good call on nominating Islands, I haven't been there in a long time. Sad to have so recently lost the Counter... :( I don't think it's well known, but Burger Hut, by Nugget, would be a good nominee.

Squeeze Inn with the cheese skirt is to die for!, Honorary mention to Five Guys.

Counter was overrated crap. Is BH still open? It always looks closed to me.
A S June 20, 2012 at 10:42 PM
Claim Jumpers. Sad that we don't have many local places with good burgers - I found Bunz & Co to be overrated.

Care to elaborate on the Counter or just slam and run? Haven't been to Burger Hut in a while, maybe I'll check it out tonight.

Burger Hut is closed here in Roseville, which is a bummer because it was one of my favorite burger places when I lived in Chico.
A S June 20, 2012 at 10:57 PM
I thought it was overrated, because the meat was barely seasoned, and wasn't cooked any special way (such as flame-grilled like at habit etc.) Sure, it was unique that you had complete customization ability, and their sauces were good; but those are only a small part of the overall picture. Don't get me wrong, we went there often - I just feel that overall it was on the lower end of the list of great burger places in Roseville.

I agree, Squeeze is great, but IMO the one in RV isn't as good as the one in Galt. The one here is so much greasier and less flavorful.
Sean Carter June 20, 2012 at 11:00 PM
Fair enough. I've only been there once, but there's a Counter-ish place in El Dorado HIlls called Relish, maybe you'd like them more. I did enjoy the customization that the Counter offered.

Toss between Smash and Five guys: Smash - egg bum sets off the flavor of the meat 5 guys - love the double meat and they have the best fries Habit - tastes like Carl's jr. Lacks definition and substance. Squeeze inn - the WORST customer service experience ever. I got banned on their FB for writing a complaint Counter - way over rated, horrible customer service (25% of my meals were comped by the manager because of bad service).

Burger Hut closed! Lived on those burgers in Chico!
Nancy Klevickis June 21, 2012 at 02:18 AM
Crazy, but I have always loved the CA burger at Original Petes :)

How many of these are local non chain burger places? How many of the local non chain places have you visited? This should be about the local guys! Not a place where you could go to any state and get the same regurgitated crap! Smash burger 5 Guys Habit Burger, get real. Why don't you people get out and eat some local NON CHAIN burgers and get a real vote together!!!
Sean Carter June 21, 2012 at 03:25 PM
Do you have any suggestions? Other than Nubbins and maybe Chubby's (neither of which I'm particularly excited by) we just don't have a whole lot as far as local non-chain "burger joints." If you wanna get really in depth, I suppose we could suggest a list of local non-chain restaurants that have at least 1 burger on the menu: Crush 29 Nubbins Paul Martin's (though they do have other locations) The Boxing Donkey Parker's might have a hamburger (but their online menu is so awful that you can't read it) Chubby's Waffle Barn Denny's Cafe *shudder* Johnny Garlics (technically a chain) Country Gable's Cafe Pacific Street Cafe Sports Page Restaurant & Bar Granite's Famous Cheesesteaks & Wings AJ's Casual Eatery Back Forty Texas BBQ Ginger's The Glass Turtle Mr. Subs Original Pete's (technically a chain) Islands (also a chain, just not a very big one) Squeeze Inn Suede Blue Tahoe Joe's (another small chain)

I'm surprised Smashburger was on the list. I found their burgers to be greasy and not very tasty. My favorite is Granite's. Great burgers, and their garlic fries and hot wings are excellent too!
John Herby Hancock June 22, 2012 at 02:31 PM
@Sean As Long as they are local NON chains. You say you're not crazy about them. Have you tried them? Anything local should be the focus......
Sean Carter June 22, 2012 at 02:40 PM
I have tried both and they weren't anything special in my opinion, but to each their own.

Reading this article, I was reminded that it's lunch time, we took a trip to Nubbins. You really have to classify these burgers based on several different things: best for the price, best regardless of the price, best for the service. For example, In n' out is possibly best for the price (I give them three forks and a knife). Nubbins double burger, however gets four forks and a spoon, but their single burger only gets two knives. Squeeze Inn gets two forks and two knives for the burger, but the service only gets 1/2 of a spoon. The Habit hasn't been mentioned. For the price they get two spoons and three knives. Can we include Lincoln? Fatburger, at Thunder Valley has really good burgers. I give them three knives, a spoon and a saltshaker.

Can you explain your rating system in some more detail? I'm very confused...
Franklin June 22, 2012 at 11:35 PM
No. I'm confused too.
