"Hamburger America," is the greatest book ever written about the greatest food item ever, written by the greatest Burger lover ever, George Motz. The book has now been "Completely Revised and Updated," just as the title states.

The original edition of the book featured 100 stories, reviews and photos of some of the most important Burgers that make this great country as great as it is. It is a veritable bible of quality Hamburgers that can be used as a historically based road map for those of us on a Glorious Pursuit of Delicious Burgers.

I met George in October of 2009 as he invited me out to have a Burger at Schnipper's Quality Kitchen in NYC, which later was added to my list of The Best Burgers in NYC on burgerconquest.com. George is always smiling, always laughing. always excited to eat and or talk about Burgers and is the man behind The NYC Food Film Festival. It's a week long event based around George's passion for film and food. It's a fantastic series of events and when they announce the line up for 2011, you best jump to get tickets.

George is the Indiana Jones of Hamburgers and this book is his way of keeping the ark from becoming lost. No Hamburger lover should be without.

This is a great book for hamburger lovers all over. I live in Oklahoma and have already tried some of the joints here in my state. Can't wait to go on vacation. This is a must for road travelers.

Author George Motz comes across in his book (AND his TV show) as someone who is genuine and passionate about the All American Hamburger. He's thorough and complete in his choices by state, and seems to be the type of guy you'd LOVE to not only sit down and enjoy a burger and a beer with, but road tripping with him would be a never ending stretch of fun stories, experiences and adventures. The book is a must have for anyone that enjoys hamburgers.

By George, I think hes got it! A perfect travel companion. Also gives good hints about making burgers at home (you can easily replicate many of the styles and recipes). I highly recommend this to every young chef who wishes to start a burger stand. I hope George makes it to Phoenix soon - we gotta get on his map.

I found this book quite interesting though a bit repetitive at times. I planned to only read a little here and there but wound up reading the whole book. It was surprising the types of places where good hamburgers can be found and the variety of ways they can be prepared.

I saw this book while watching Burger Land on the Travel Channel. There were several burger places that we want to try and this book covers those same places as the program did. Disappointed that it is now off the air! The book (and the program gave very insightful information about the city, the burger place and the main thing, the burger itself. The book goes further in giving the address and in some cases the phone number. I was disappointed that not every state was represented in the book, but those that were have some burger places that we will definitely visit. Now that we have the book, it can travel with us and we can find those delicious bites.

Sounds like a cookbook. HAMBURGER AMERICA by George Motz. What is a love story about hamburger (not really) and a travel guide to fine the best burger stands in the country. It is THE burger guide (there aren't many). I really enjoyed the book. It made my mouth drool. This book is divided by states and a little history of each burger joint with addresses and hours provided. Hit the road! Have a burger. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
