    It's on Main Street across from the ferries and is the little door on the right side of the Main Street Inn.

    Hello jaxthedog,
    I hit the link to your blogspot and looked at your pictures. We share a love of some of the same areas from Yellow Creek to the Capay Valley. Unless I am doing something wrong, I never found any of "your" favorite burger joints? The link sent me to a political statement. I'm still wondering where you like to go? I would like to check it out on my next trip to the area?
    Thanks,
    John

    Hey John,

    The link you sent back my way seems to hit the post about burger joints. Here it is again (I think): http://thechurchoftheopenroad.blogsp...-anywhere.html

    Sorry about you hooking into the occasional diatribe I post. [It has been noted by others that Internet Explorer (prior to IE 10) may not access the most current posts.]

    Thanks Dave,
    Man, I can see the Best Burger Joint Anywhere on your blog but can't find your choices. I am using the latest Explorer. I guess that is the problem? Thank you for trying to resend it.

    Mainly, I look for the independent burger joint. My current favorite is the Healdsburger in Healdsburg, CA on lower H'burg Ave). I also mention Taylors Drive In in Rocklin CA (on historic Hwy 40 parallel to I-80), the Burger Barn in Dunsmuir (on business rt 5), the Jamestown Frosty in Jamestown (off 108) and the Pine Shack in Chester on 36. Most of these are just hamburger places we used to enjoy as kids, but the Healdsburger, a converted A&W, is kinda special, run by a former exec for the Oakland A's whom, I think, was looking for a way of life that incorporated more immediate rewards.

    The comments from folks indicate there are hundreds of such places dotted across the US. I think I've found the tool I'll use for my next extended road trip!

    it's something new to me.)

    Is this a bit like the travel magazines that list the 10 best places to live?
    The population goes up 25% and then it isn't such a great place to live anymore.

    If I had a great, out of the way place to get a burger, I would be inclined to keep keep it that way.

    Where's the best burger joint you've run across?

    Blake's Lottaburger is a good chain in New Mexico.

    That's just how they are at Red's in Greenfield. Hand 'smashed' patties that are irregular shaped and stick out from the sides of the bun! No inside dining, walk up counter service only!

    Ardys.jpgI watched a freight train engineer across the street stop his train and walk across for a burger. It is a old fashion drive-in where young girls on roller skates serve the customers. (my son and a friend in the pic)
