    That other hamburger thread had me wondering if anyone knows of some good burger spots around here. I am fairly new to this area and would like visit some.

    The Gunderburger at the Irish Shanti in Elgin. Not quite CF/W'loo but NE Iowa at least.

    I would go with either Screaming Eagle on 4th, or Beck's on University.

    I saw a show on IPTV about Gunder, IA and the Gunderburger which is a one pound hamburger. They have a loaded Gunderburger which has cheese, bacon, grilled mushrooms & onions, lettuce, tomato & pickle.

    Edit: CyFan61 beat me to it.

    Being from Waterloo originally I would say good luck. But, I actually had a very very good burger at The Lone Wolf inside the casino. It was damn good.

    I don't know about the burger, but a couple months I happened into Newton's Paradise Cafe in downtown Waterloo and had a fantastic grilled cheese.

    The roast beef sandwich at Newtons is also fantastic.

    Toads or the Pump Haus on main in CF make pretty good burgers.

    If it did, then it happened really recently. I don't think it did though.

    Doughy Joey's closed though.

    I'm a super cheap date - I love grilled cheese. And, it's called 'Great Grown-Up Grilled Cheese'.

    Sakura. That was the sushi place I couldn't think of. Never been to Hickory House. Is that one of the places that sets up shop at Friday Loo? There's some really good BBQ trailers there.

    You've got to get the tenderloin at Newton's Cafe. It's huge and delicious.
