Question Which restaurants flame broil their burgers?

Are there any chain or popular restaurants, other than BK, that flame grill their burgers instead of frying them?

I do not know of any other national chain that does, but I have been to a few local places that do flame frill their burgers.

Carl's Jr. flame broils some of their burgers, such as the Six Dollar ones and the famous star. They seem to fry the rest of their burgers on a flat grill.

But then, is a previously-flame-broiled-recently-warmed-up-in-the-microwave burger any better than a fried one?

Only slightly off-topic, but one time in college I went to a BK and asked for "lines on both sides of my burger" really confused the person at the counter.

Burger Joint does (N California) IMO the best Flame Broiled burger anywhere
The Habit (S California & AZ)
Houston's (Major Metro US Cities) if you want to pay $17 for a burger

Their flame broiled turkey burger on a whole wheat bun is quite tasty.

The Burger Inn in Calgary.. I think it has 3 or 4 stores.. serves turkey burger, but I can't remember if they are flame broiled..

Here's a sample of the menu..
