I can't believe it either. At minimum it should have included Father's Office over the Counter.
I also can't believe that the list only has 2 burgers from Los Angeles, which is burger central. It's a very east coast centric list, come to think of it. Of the 20, 8 are from New England.
When did this list come out. It seems that they do one every six months or so. Will say:
Haven't been to the Counter. But other than Oprah's 'blessing' have not heard anything too favorable about the place
Lugers is way over rated.
Burger joint is good. But it's all prefab even the casual look of the place. Food is all processed frozen stuff anyone can get at Cosco.
J.G. Mellons should be much higher on the list (their fries could be much better.).
Lugers is not over rated, the bacon cheeseburger is awesome. One of my favorite lunches is a Luger burger with well done fries( fried in tallow) and an ice cold mug of Beck's. What is overrated is Le Tub. Last year I went out of my way on a trip to Florida and could not have been more disappointed. It was way to big, poorly cooked and not very tasty. No sear on the outside, just not that good. It came on a lousy roll with bad underfried frozen fries.The view was terrific.
I posted in another thread about my most gluttonous day ever- lunch at Peter Lugers in Brooklyn, dinner at Barclay Prime.
As you can imagine, there were alot of great flavors, most of them cow related. The best thing I ate were the sliders at Barclay Prime. The porterhouse at Lugers was ridiculously good, as was the strip at BP. But those sliders....mmmm....
