Hamburger America 2 Almost Done

I'm at the end of my rope and almost done with final manuscript for the completely revised edition of Hamburger America. 50 new (old) burger joints have made it into the new edition and I am completely wiped out. I've worked harder on this book than anything in my life and I can't wait to put it to bed. I've actually had a blast in the past 2 weeks checking in with the 100 burger joints that are in the book already. Not surprisingly, nothing has changed at these places and that makes me happy.

My love and appreciation of the Great American Hamburger has grown ever stronger and I've met 50 new hamburger heroes. I'm looking forward to sharing the fruits of my labors, soon, come April 2011. And starting next week I'll be able to get back to blogging.

Below is a shot from the new book. See if you can guess where this was taken. Could there be anything better than a beer and a burger at a classic drive-in? (comments are open for this post)

I have a guess - does it start with a K?

Hamburger America said...

Yup. Did you get there?

You got a #5 on the 5 tray?

Great! Can't wait to get a hold of that book! Cheers from The Netherlands where it is tough to find the all american hamburger

@ Anne en Eric: You said Tough. But is it impossible? Any tips for a fellow Dutchman?

Hamburger America said...

Yeah, it's Keller's in Dallas. One of the most satisfying burgers I had during the research for the revised edition. So good.

Dunno, but I like the looks of that Budweiser.

Hi George,

Congratulations on your book! We look forward to checking it out next Spring.

I'd love to send you details about a new burger stand about to open in Seattle. If interested, please reply with the best email address.

Thanks,

Janna
