Hildebrandt's-went for best burger/found best malted

OK-so both Motz and Ozersky recommended Hildebrandt's in their recent books on burgers as being one of the best. I love and respect their opinions on burgers. The cheeseburger at Hildebrandt's was good but not trip worthy in itself. However, the fries which were a cross between hash browns and potato chips were memorable. Everything paled however after tasting the chocolate malted. Homemade ice cream with a whopping amount of Horlick's malt powder mixed on an original Mixmaster until straw drinkable. Perhaps that's what brought a category 7 burger up to a 10 for Motz and Ozersky. Must go back and try a double burger and a homemade hot fudge sundae.

    1. I was raised not far from there and just never got around to going. But your mention of all that malt in the malted has me trying to figure out how soon I can get there.
