Tip of The Week – Win a $25.00 Visa Gift Card!

For this week’s tip, I am shouting out to my readers to tell me where to get the best burger in Raleigh or Durham. All of you who make recommendations in the comment section below will be entered into a drawing for a $25.00 Visa gift card  – wooohoooo! I’ll be taking suggestions until 8/15/11, and will announce the winner on an upcoming blog post!

In a few weeks I will start eating meat again – not a lot, but I am going to slowly introduce it back into my diet, mainly turkey and chicken. However, one of my favorite foods in the world is a great burger, and there have been a few times in the past six months where I almost broke down and had one. But I have been quite good, keeping my goal of August 21st (or thereabouts) always in mind. And I think all the waiting will make it even better!

So, readers, where’s the beef?

    You can’t go wrong with the pimento cheese burger at Duffy’s, I think it comes with bacon and I know you can ask for it.

    Hello Kelley,
    Thanks for reading my Durhamburger blog (www.durhamburger.com)!

    I only started a few weeks ago, but so far my rankings for top three in Durham are the following:
    (1) Nosh’s “Robinson Burger” ($7.99) http://noshfood.com/
    (2) Geer St. Garden ($9.00) http://www.geerstreetgarden.com/
    (3) The Federal ($8.00) http://thefederal.net/

    Hamburgerly yours,
    Crystal Dreisbach,
    Amateur Burger Connaisseuse

    • Thanks, Crystal – I am definitely going to try The Federal in the next few weeks, and look forward to reading your burger posts. Let me know if you want to meet in person (over a burger, of course!)

    A couple of Cary places that are good:

    1. Harrison’s Bar and Grill
    2. Abbey Road Grill

    For Raleigh, I tend to like steakhouse burgers…

    1. Vinnie’s Steakhouse
    2. Firebirds Wood Fired Grill

  10. Martha says:

    Satisfaction in Durham.

  11. pat trempus says:

    Of all the places I would not have put way high up on a list of restaurants for great food Ruby Tuesday’s has or had one of the best burgers I ever had; it had 4 different cheeses on it, big slice red onion, roamine lettuce and a slice of a Better Boy tomato on it; soft Kaiser roll and my drool as I ate it.

  12. Bob Strother says:

    Char-Grill on Strickland rd in Raleigh

    • Love some Char-Grill! Use to eat at the original one on Hillsborough St. three times a week when I worked at St. Mary’s College – hamburger steak jr., chili cheeseburger and believe it or not, bbq sandwich (which is quite good).

  13. Rose says:

    For a fast burger, Five Guys. But a new place on Falls of Neuse, TheFork and Barrel has a great burger and lots of micro beers on tap. Can’t beat a burger and a cold beer!!

  14. Sallyann says:

    I would also pick Five Guys for a quick burger. Their fries are good too.

  15. Jennifer B. says:

    Relish Cafe & Bar (on Creedmoor) has a really good burger!

  16. Ashley Sisk says:

    I think MoJo’s on Glenwood has the best burgers!

  17. Tom Omohundro says:

    Char-Grill Jr. withe lettuce,tomato,& mayo is tough to beat….esp. since they throw in fries….

  18. Cherie Saliby-Puszynski says:

    Love Char-Grill but also love the Fat Daddy’s burger with their barbeque sauce.

  19. Ronda says:

    I know I’m late to the party, but the Wolfpack burger at the PR is WONDERFUL!!!

  20. OK Everyone, what a wonderful list of suggestions. There are some of my favorites as well as many new places I can’t wait to try. Thank you all for your comments.

    And now, for the winner (drumroll, please) – Trina! Congratulations!

    As an aside, I had Brad pull the name out of the hat and damn if he didn’t pick his own. We had already talked about what we would do if that happened. So I owe him, but I’m not saying what 😉

    Be on the lookout for a future blog featuring some of these places and some of my other favorites!
