READERS' PICK: And the winner of the 117th Annual Fuddrucker's Award for Best Freakin' Hamburger in Town goes to (yawn) Fuddrucker's! The folks at Fuddrucker's would appreciate it if someone would give them a run for their money next year, just to keep them on the top of their game. Actually, we meat lovers know a lot of places around town that serve good burgers, but Fuddrucker's is the undisputed monster.
READERS' POLL RUNNER-UP: Bob Dobb's, 2501 E. Sixth St. Every once in a while, we are possessed by a hunger for which there is only one cure: the mighty dual-patty Bob Burger, found only in Bob Dobb's. This recipe must have been cooked up by a mad scientist. We've never gotten one down to the lab for analysis, but the mighty Bob is said to contain a mix of secret spices, Worcestershire sauce and a healthy helping of garlic. We've got a crazy idea for the Brothers Cummings: make the Bob available at their downtown restaurants, O'Malley's and the Plaza Pub. We guarantee they'd get our lunch business.
