Best burger in the world

Instead of How I Met Your Mother's search for the best burger in New York, I want to know where to find the best burger in the world according to the Flyertalk community.

To kick-off this topic, the best burger I had so far: The M-Burger in Chicago http://www.mburgerchicago.com/
Very tasteful and contains bacon, cheese and a secret M-Burger sauce sold at 4 locations across the city.
On their facebook-page they also publish a monthly secret menu with a pumpkin-shake on it right now.

So, what's your favorite burger in the world?

Wall Street Journal rates The Ghetto Burger at Ann's Snack Bar, in a seedy area of Atlanta, as the best burger in the USA. Folks wait hours for one of the six or so bar stools to eat one.

Crown Burger in SLC. Ann's isn't really that good and nobody waits hours there.

In Philly we have lots of great burger options which makes it tough to find others I like out of town-500 is my go to burger joint and then if fancy, go for Kobe sliders at Barclay Prime.

Kumas corner in Chicago! Get there early...and enjoy a cool atmosphere and one of the best burgers ever. Pretzel buns, great fries and some pretty funky topping combos.
I'm heading to ATL next week so will try out Ann's...Ghetto Burger sounds right up my alley.

+1 In and Out by LAX while watching planes land!

Other places I've had a good burger:
-Chunky's, San Antonio
-Bill's Place, Clement Ave, San Francisco
-Primanti Bros., Pittsburgh (though not technically burgers, they throw the fries and coleslaw inside the sandwiches)

If you ever come to Copenhagen without the necessary change for Noma find your way to "Cocks and Cows". Order the "Governator" and you won't leave hungry

Btw fun presentation of all their burgers on the website http://www.cocksandcows.dk/ , click on the arrows.

I wouldn't think you would ever come close to a consensus on best burger. Way too many variables and everyone has a unique preference in toppings, size, bun, etc.

FWIW, I like Winsteads, Carl Junior's Western Bacon Cheeseburger, Jack in the Box Sourdough burger, and Johnny Rockets. Oddly enough, I had a prime beef burger in Amman, Jordan this year that I thought was outstanding also.

Not sure the best burger, but the best $2 burger is at Beer Bistro in Chicago on Tuesdays.

The burger at the Marmont is really rather good and I do prefer a brioche bun to a bap.

I'm back in LA and LV this month so I'll be scanning this thread for suggestions

The best burger in the world you can make at home exactly to your liking.

Have you tried it? A burger is probably the easiest thing to come out super tastey with a huge margin of [redacted per the TOS] error.

It requires the talent of the "OMG, I just made a great PB&J" chef.
