Best Hamburger

Where do you go to get your favorite hamburger in Salem? There aren't many good local choices. We don't even have a Burgerville. My favorite is The Ram, otherwise I'd rather stay home and barbecue. The burger in the picture is an Angus burger from Carl's Jr. It was pretty bad.

I'm not a huge burger fan.. And I'm somewhat embarrassed to say that the new McCruncher is pretty darn good..

Cheese, bacon, bbq sauce and those crunchy onions that you would put on green bean casserole.. pretty darm good for McD's

I guess Red Robins has decent burgers..

The Burger Basket on Mission st.. is not very good.. I've been there a couple of times and never seemed to get a good meal..

I'm new to this site, so forgive me if I've missed a review of my favorite burger place, but if I'm hankering for a great grilled burger (toasted sesame seed bun, cheese that's actually melted), I head to Court St. Dairy Lunch.

Although it's true that sometimes Burger Basket isn't very good, there are also times when it's very delicious!! I don't know what makes the difference...maybe they have different cooks.

I'm going to have to make a point of going to Dairy Lunch.
We like the burgers at Thompson's . . . and the fries aren't bad either. :>)

Although I can't say much for their beer, The Ram has fine burgers, with especially nice buns.

Try the Willamette Valley Grille in the Red Lion Hotel on Market and Hawthorne: they have exceptional hamburgers. If you go there for happy hour, they have very inexpensive and delicious food as well. Also a very nice atmosphere and way better service than Thompson's or Boon's Treasury.

I will have to try Court St. Dairy Lunch; it sounds like a lot of people enjoy their burgers!

Just had a burger at Cinebarre last night and it was great! Plus they have fresh, hand-cut fries that were very tasty too. If you don't want to watch a movie while you eat they have a large open lobby (free wi-fi too!) you can eat in.

If you like burgers and fries, you need to check it out.
