    Was reading the weather forecast thread and someone mentioned higher end burger franchises like Whataburger, etc. So, what is everyone's favorite burger place? I ate at Whataburger in San Antonio, and was impressed with how well they handled the crazy crowd. Food was good, but not great. Good enough that I would definitely go there again if it wasn't bowl week. Not sure if there are any of those in Iowa. Stopped at B-Bopp's on the way to the Des Moines airport and thought it was outstanding for the money. Wish there was one in Cedar Rapids area.

    Steak N Shake and In and Out Burger are the best deals I've ever seen.

    Crazy anyone would go to a McDonalds or BK for 20% more money if they're near one of those.

    Is this a franchise? Never heard of it. Forgot about Steak and Shake. Lots of choices there.

    There used to be two B-Bops in the CR area (near both CR Walmarts). I wasn't impressed with it, even though I loved it in the DM area. I recall they were overly greasy.

    Very, very small menu and fair priced. Employees are paid well.

    Was that B-Bops? I remember something like that there, but didn't remember the name. Didn't last very long, and I ate there was didn't like it as well as the one in Des Moines. I know there was a Sonic by the NE Walmart at one point in time, but it didn't last long either.

    I really enjoyed the In-N-Out burger, but the fries were trash. I gotta pick up B-Bops whenever I'm back to visit my parents.
