Best Burger in Bucks County?

It's Memorial Day Weekend and I want to search out the best burger this weekend. I am planning to go to Dilly's Corner, Chopper's and Issac Newton's. Where else should I go to get a great All American burger?

        Hey TwoBellies, took your advice and went to Mikes's for a burger. I had the Mike's Super Burger and it was great. I also had their wings kinda so-so but the burger was super. I posted the whole experience to my blog. You can read about it at http://petersfoodadventure.wordpress....

            Thanks for the Shoutout! I just posted your article on my forum! Get Some!

        1. Wow! Dilly's Corner! Haven't been there in quite awhile. Let us know how their burger was Peter

            I love Dilly's. There DillyBurger is great. Here is the link to my post about my last visit there. http://petersfoodadventure.wordpress....

          2. I think the best burger is just over the border of Bucks County. Bubba's Pot-bellied Stove in Coopersburg, Lehigh County wins the burger competition for me!

            1. Should have checked before my last post - Bubba's is in Quakertown, so for my money, it is the best in Bucks County and those Lehigh County people will have to "come on down" to get a taste! Mea culpa!

                Thanks Bucksguy. Other food suggestions in Bucks Co would be great. I'll let you know how it went at Bubba's

                1. re: PeterJustason

                  Bubba's was worth the drive from New Hope and made our Top 5 list for Bucks Co. You can read about our Top 5 list for Bucks Co Burgers at http://petersfoodadventure.wordpress....
                  The post about the visit to Bubba's should go up in the next couple of days.

                      Glad to hear you liked Bubba's! I'm not a wings guy, but my wife like's the hot ones there. I like both the Gene White & British burgers you picked and, if I'm in the mood for sloppy, I go for the Kennett Square (I'm tasting that garlic herb cheese right now!!). We always get an order of onion rings I see a ride to Upper Bucks in my near future.

                        Reading these posts, I am forgetting I had quite the meal today. I want a burger!

                        1. re: crazyspice

                          Very cool Bucksguy14. We will have to try the Kennett Square next time. Other reco?

                          CrazySpice, Are you eating in Buck Co these days?

                            1. re: crazyspice

                              Any recommendations for wings or margaritas?

                              1. re: PeterJustason

                                Sorry, Peter. I don't partake of either. I am a wine girl.

                                1. re: crazyspice

                                  Been to any good wineries you can recommend?

                                  1. re: PeterJustason

                                    While not generally a fan of Pennsylvania wines, I really enjoy Sand Castle wines. Located on River Road in Erwinna.

                                    1. re: crazyspice

                                      Been there and had some nice wines. I liked their reds. Been to Washington Crossing winery in Washington Crossing?

                                      1. re: PeterJustason

                                        I have not. I prefer white. What can you tell me about them?

                            2. re: PeterJustason

                              I like their onion soup on cold days. My wife likes the Coconut Shrimp. I've had the Ed Wynn Samich but it was so long ago I don't really recall what I thought of it. I've been hooked on their burgers for about 10 years! Can't beat a burger, onion rings and an ice-cold brew!

                              1. re: PeterJustason

                                One other thing, since we moved to Montco about a year & a half ago, I've been searching for a burger to come close to Bubba's. Haven't been successful so far. If anyone has a Montco burger recommendatiion, I'm all ears (maybe I should say eyes since we're on-line!).

                                1. re: bucksguy14

                                  I've just posted a long review of Yo Dogs, a burger/dog takeout joint in Wyndmoor (Montgomery County). Thoroughly enjoyable. I think you might want to take a spin down Willow Grove Avenue to try it out!

                                  1. re: kiwijen

                                    Love a good dog. Any suggestions for Buck Co?

                                    1. re: PeterJustason

                                      at risk of ruining my new found fame, go to Lenny's at Bustleton and Street Roads for the Combo, fishcake, dog and Pepper Hash. It's the only place I know of that still has them. It was a childhood fav growing up in Philly!

                                      1. re: TwoBellies

                                        Very cool. Will give it a try and report back.

                                        1. re: PeterJustason

                                          TwoBellies Lenny's wasn't so good. Might have been a bad day for them but take a read and let me know if you think what I wrote was fair. http://petersfoodadventure.wordpress.... I also went back to Dilly's Corner and had a very good dog with tons of onions, peppers and fries. It's also on the blog

                                          1. re: PeterJustason

                                            I let ya down, Dag! Don't remember bad buns, at least not on the dog. Haven't been there is a few years. I owe you a lunch, pal. Say when and where!

                                    2. re: kiwijen

                                      Yo Dogs in Wynmoor has the best burgers in the area. Hands down! The Famous Garlic Fries are the bomb as well.

                                      1. re: jessjackets

                                        I think Wynmoor just a little outside the boundaries of Bucks County. You could start a best of Montco!

                    2. Choppers in Lahaska is out of business. You didn't miss anything.
