First, take pounds and pounds of sirloin steak. Trim and roast it until the fat is rendered and the solids have browned. Cool and paddle the fat into your aged ground blend of chuck and other cuts. Grill and place on brioche bun. It’s seriously insane.

My favorite bar burger, bar none. All the fancy stuff can come and go, but this is the burger I grew up on, and it holds a special place in my heart. Order it with cottage fries and spinach salad on the side.

An ancient roadside institution. Aged grass-fed beef purchased from the same farm for generations, griddled, served big and thick and juicy with green chiles if you want ’em. I think this is one for the record books.
