Burger Heaven, Burger Hell

A quest for all that's good and greasy in an American icon

Not that I'll stop looking -- or complaining. I've yet to meet a ground-turkey burger I considered worth eating, even at 8.0, where the mere sight of a tempeh burger on the menu makes me blanch. I reserve the right to sneer at those portobello mushroom burgers, and to giggle about the beet and taro chips Ruggles is dispensing with its thoroughly modern vegetarian, chicken and buffalo burgers. And when a friend swears to me that the freshly ground burgers at the 11th Street Cafe taste "just like the old-fashioned drive-in kind," I will dutifully check them out. In the heart of the true burger nut -- which means just about all of us -- hope springs eternal.
