As one more year comes to a close, we took another hard look and put together the best burger and a few memorable places and experiences we’ve enjoyed in 2012.
Angel: There we were, in Syracuse, 2 days behind us, 2 days ahead of us.
Angel: We awoke in Binghamton with three more days of burgers (and a lot of driving) ahead of us. With 150 miles planned for the day, and (only) 90 before our first stop, we started the day thinking we had some time to kill and should enjoy the scenery.
Angel: “We’re on a road to…(burgers).” Okay, so that isn’t quite the lyrics to the Talking Heads song, but that was ours. 4 days, 3 nights, and (at least) 6 burgers, many stops, and fun times for all… or at least the two of us. Every journey starts with a single step and the first [...]

Sean: Before the votes were tallied and the winner chosen, we had to make a trip to each of the 10 nominated regional winners… a trip that would start somewhere familiar and somewhat in our own backyards at AJ’s Burgers in New Rochelle.
Angel: How can you go wrong with a name like Ale ‘n’ Angus Pub? – Sean: Easily. Far too often I’ve tried a ‘world famous,’ ‘greatest ever,’ or ‘award winning’ food only to walk away extremely disappointed. While I tried to keep a clear mind and walk in without any expectations, it’s hard to deny [...]
