Places we have visited in 2014:
Long history, friendly service, and old-school techniques make this joint a classic hamburger experience. Be aware that seating is limited and there may be a bit of a wait at peak times. If you are in the Ardmore area, it is definitely worth a visit. I know they open early for breakfast, but think they close after lunch... so it may be wise to call ahead to confirm they are open.
The Hamburger Inn looked like a quality burger joint from the outside and didn't dissapoint.
Overall, this was a good burger experience. Comfortable atmosphere, good burgers & decent sides, with friends and tasty beverages. I'd make a second trip without much hesitation.
Today I went to On The Border specifically to eat their Hatch Green Chili Burger. A friend on my baseball team has a mom who works at On The Border. When she heard that we were doing burger tours she strongly recommended the Green Chili Burger, and we promised her that we would give it a try. This burger is only available in select locations in the DFW area.
Stackhouse was overall a good experience with a great burger and some great chili-cheese fries. I will definitely want to return!
Today I went to Burger Island with the Watson's. Everything was as good if not better than what I remember. The burger was nice and juicy and the fries were seasoned to perfection just like last time.

The ingredients were mostly the same, but i'll go over them again anyway. They were:
