Look I wouldn't blame you if you felt this one should go to In-N-Out Burger. I think In-N-Out is probably #3 on my list. Number 2 is TK Burger. Number 1 is the Playground Burger, but I'm not sure you can even get it any more. This guy called it "Your favorite burger's favorite burger". To me it was a mythical burger. I didn't even know what it was called, as the menu just listed the price: $14. I asked what kind of burger costs 14 dollars, and they told me "I can't tell you. Do you want it or not?" The answer was yes, and what followed was Brode's Best.
This burger super fucked me up for all future burgers. It's not clear if they still have this on the menu. Heck, it's not even clear if the restaurant that makes it still exists. There are rumors you can find some Playground classics at Dough Exchange, but I haven't been able to verify if the Playground burger is one of them.
Let us hope.
