  1. how far SE? Rocky's Burger Bus is a fantastic take-out burger, one of the best in the city.

        Ok then, I'm mentioning Peter's Drive In.

        1. re: Scary Bill

          i don't get it - are you trying to equate Peter's and 5 Guys? you've got to be effing kidding me.

          peter's isn't in the SE, either :P

          1. re: nonlinear

            I know it's not in the SE, but 5 Guy's? Really? It's a good burger, but not a great one. Big selection of toppings, thats definitely a plus. And the fries are crap, made from russets, a great baking potato, but lousy for fries. And they're always so bloody salty.

            The best burgers come off my cue'.

            1. re: Scary Bill

              I am not a real fan of Five Guys either. I do however love the salted peanuts...Thanks to all for the suggestions..

              1. re: Scary Bill

                he asked for great burgers in the SE. unfortunately, I can't really think of anything better than 5 Guys - can you?

                and still - there is a HUGE difference between 5 Guys and Peter's (since it has changed ownership, anyhow). Those should not even be mentioned in the same sentence.

                1. re: nonlinear

                  nonlinear: saw your response in the 5guys thread. I'm the opposite - I thought 5guys wasn't all that impressive, but I love Rocky's. yup, to each their own...

                  1. re: nonlinear

                    Though I've never been, someone told me that Oscar's on Bonaventure make a pretty good burger, so I'll have to go there sometime.

                    1. re: Scary Bill

                      I've never had a burger at Oscar's, but I have eaten there and the food is outstanding. Hands down the best french onion soup i've EVER had.

                      1. re: nonlinear

                        Dang I can't believe I've never heard of this place. I hope somebody can review their burg soon or I might just have to go in there and try it myself!

                        Thanks for the heads up

                        1. re: johnjohnson78

                          go try it dude! I live really close to Oscar's, but I'm not really one to order a burger at a restaurant.... but if someone told me it was awesome, i would totally go for it hahah!

          2. 1600 Bier House in the SW on 14th near Heritage has really good sliders (and a great beer selection)r
