Tiers of A Burger

After eating countless burgers, I've come to the realization that it is impossible to assign a ranking to my favorite burgers.  There is little separation between most of the good ones. I've also come to the realization that due to my love of burgers, The Chowfather may need to be The Nutrisystemfather for a few weeks.... (I don't get/do the cleanse thang)

These are the best of the best in South Florida

TIER 1

Bourbon Steak (bar/lounge menu)

Jalapeno burger @ Love Food Cafe.

I would have to put the Michael's burger as well as B&B at least one or two tiers above Five Guys. I would also put Houston's and Pacific Time's burgers a tier above.

I would also put A Chef's Burger somewhere towards the top of that list.

I need to get to B&B soon. I didn't love Five guys my first time but it was grown on me with each subsequent visit. I have not had a Houston's burger in years and have no recollection of it.

I've only had Micheal's burger one time b/c it's nearly impossible to order with so many great options. I didn't even look at the menu the day I finally ordered it.

Yes! Re: B&B, if you don't build your own, get the Thunder Road. Onion rings with jalapeno cheese sauce are addictive.

Agreed eating lunch at Michael's is always painful because there are always so many great things that are left off the order. I've enjoyed two burgers there, the traditional (brioche bun, house bacon, white cheddar, blt) and a special one day made with two grass fed patties and cheddar. Couldn't tell if I enjoyed the meat any better and I think overall I preferred the classic.

Don't sleep on A Chef's Burger... unfortunately the guy is only open until 330/4 pm M-Sat.

I'm going to try to get to B&B this week.

Is a Chef's Burger a food truck? I think that is and yes I want to try it. I forgot to include that on "my list"
