Best burgers I've ever had because they're different from anything else. Fried til crispy in a cast iron skillet and topped with onion, pickle, salt, and pepper.

The Hamburger Wagon in Miamisburg, OH.

If you're coming, shoot me a PM and I'll buy! I'll even throw in a draft PBR or two from across the street at Ron's Tavern!



History of the Hamburger Wagon
River towns of the Miami Valley were decimated by the infamous Great Flood of 1913. Miamisburg was no exception as floodwaters from the Great Miami River caused untold damage to this small community.

As Miamisburg was virtually under water, the Red Cross set up a tent city for the refugees at the top of Mound Hill. Sherman “Cocky” Porter, a Miamisburg resident, volunteered to help provide food for the flood victims and relief workers. As the cold March winds blew through the camp, Porter knew that whatever food was to be provided needed to be warm, nutritious and readily available in large quantities. Porter had just the right answer. Utilizing a favorite family recipe, Porter began serving up hot, tasty hamburgers to everyone in the camp for many days. These sandwiches were a huge hit and were extremely popular throughout the community.

As time went by, the floodwaters receded, the tent city closed and life in Miamisburg returned to normal. However, something was missing! Miamisburg residents loved the little “Porter Burgers” so much that nary a day went by without a request to Porter to cook up a few more of his burgers. With demand swelling, Sherman Porter finally agreed to start selling his secret recipe burgers on Saturdays. The burgers were so popular it soon became a full time endeavor and these tasty treats have been a Miamisburg institution ever since.

If this is your first time to Miamisburg, stop down to the “Wagon” and find out what all the fuss is about. Ranked one of the top 100 hamburgers in the United States by the recent book “Hamburger America”, we hope you’ll stop by and give this piece of Americana a try.

"Bracken Store" in Bracken (San Antonio), Texas. If you go at lunchtime, be prepared to wait.

Their burgers are, beyond the shadow of a doubt, the best that I have ever had.

Plus, beautiful hill country rides start 15 minutes from there...

Grew up less than 5 miles away form this place and did not discover it until 18 years after I moved away. I am making up for lost time. Now I eat there every time I visit my parents.

Fantastic!

Might have saved you from a early death!

Looks real tasty.

If you get to Ellensburg, Washington - Try The TAV

They have a Hunger Mother and Super Hungry Mother Burger.

Review Below:

Good Beer and Food: I love the Tav. It is one of those places that you can count on for a great burger, good beer, and usually very good service.

In the winter months, it gets very crowded, as it was last Friday night. My husband and I met a group of friends there, and at one point we had about 10 people huddling around a table for 4. In the summers though, there is a great courtyard out back, the landscaping is very pleasant and the seating is abundant.

There is a wide variety of food, my favorite is a Hungry Mother hamburger with ham and bacon and a side of fries . They offer several good salads, appetizers, pastas, and sandwiches. The "Sandwich Boards" come with two slices of bread, the desired meat and cheese and all the other fixings on the side so that you can construct your own sandwich just the way you like it. This is a big bonus for me, since I am not a big sandwich fan, and when I do eat one, I like it in a very particular way. Also, every Friday is "Prime Rib Night" which is probably why it was so crowded when we were there last Friday, it is very popular with the locals. They have daily specials that are usually very good and usually a bit more sophisticated than the daily menu.

The beer is very good, and they have a nice selection, including pints on tap from the new local Iron Horse Brewery. My husband and I always share pitchers of Mack-N-Jacks, which is our favorite, hard to find, and only is sold by the keg. I highly recommend it if you like a strong beer.

The staff is almost always very good, and if there’s a problem, it can usually be attributed to a rush of customers coming in at once. The prices are very reasonable, less than $4 for a huge burger. There are pool tables, dartboards, and a jukebox for entertainment.

This is truly an Ellensburg treasure!

The original Taylor's Automatic Refresher, at 933 Main Street in St. Helena
+1 for Taylor's, also Red Rum Burger in Davis, Ca. on I-80 is pretty legendary.

I may get flamed for this as it's fast food but I can't pass up an In-N-Out Burger. Ever. Of course, half of the appeal is the fries.

Thank God I live 2,000 miles from the closest one - gotta watch the diet as it is.

a Sante Fe or Black and Blue at MILT'S DINER (on the way to the Slickrock in Moab) is more than just a great tasting burger w/ hand cut fries...it's the love Nellie and B.C. put in every meal and the community tradition of an honest to god real 50+ year old diner. you should have been there on 1/2 price closing day for the season 2 weeks back- damned madhouse! 6" new snow today- Happy Solstice and a day closer to spring...

The Burger Lounge in South Lake Tahoe 1/3 mile N/of the Y. What's really cool is after you ride around the lake, you're ready for another one!
