This one is for the DC/MD area readers.
BGR The Burger Joint is a chain of burger restaurants in the DC metro area. I visited the Bethesda, MD location which is outfitted with 80s music and decor.
After doing a little research online to supplement my own experience, I found that a lot of people really enjoyed the pricey burgers ($ 7 for a basic burger, no cheese). I, on the other hand, found the burgers to be pretty dry and just lacking flavor. The fries, though, were great.
Oh, also, during my research, I found that there was an issue with Salmonella Poisoning. Yummy!!
About $7 for a burger with no cheese

Shake Shack is a burger joint in New York City. Actually, there are a few of them, but they're owned by the same guy/group/company. People who live in and around New York know this place is infamous for it's long lines but the burgers are great. They can be pretty messy and greasy, but they're very tasty!
I also recommend the shakes as well as the fries. All of the shakes are great, but you may wanna share it with a friend, they're pretty big.
Bottom line: the burgers are great but really greasy
About $5 for a single Shack Burger
