Hamburger Heaven

Yesterday, when I was out grabbing what proved to be a rather disappointing burger for lunch, George Motz's new, completely revised and updated version of his roadside classic, Hamburger America: A State-By-State Guide To 150 Great Burger Joints arrived at Atomic.

And while Motz's book may not have helped me at the time anyway, since Maryland is completely overlooked, there are listings for Washington DC's Ben's Chili Bowl and Tune Inn, Virginia's Texas Tavern and Pennsylvania Charlie's Hamburgers and Tessaro's.

Anthony Bourdain calls the book "A fine overview of the best practitioners of the burger sciences."

And David Page, the creator of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives calls Motz "the Indiana Jones of hamburger archeology."
