"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.

This is an invaluable guide to excellent burger joints throughout the U.S. But before departing on your belt busting road trip, I would suggest packing a Rand-McNally Road Atlas along with Hamburger America because very many of the best places seem to be in rather out of the way places.

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
