There's no shame in the drive-through game.

Culver's: The Wisconsin born chain knows that everything is better with butter. The butter slathered buns are toasted and wrapped around a thin, crispy edged patty. The burgers are ridiculously juicy and packed with that satisfying, full beef flavor. A little frozen custard doesn't hurt the order, either.

Five Guys Burger and Fries: Go all the way with these burgers by getting them topped with ketcup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, pickles, grilled onions and grilled mushrooms. Fresh meat makes all the difference in these big bad boys.

Johnny Rockets: It's not just the nostalgia that makes these burgers extra tasty. Watching them cooked fresh on the grill in front of you as the doo-wop music plays while sipping a vanilla Coke does enhance the experience. It's hard not to be charmed by the ketchup smiley face that accompanies the fat French fries. However, the proof is in each sumptuous bite of meat.

MyBurger: This locally grown chain churns out the delicious boxes of burgers. The simply adorned, quality meat is charred to perfection on the outside, running-down-your-chin juicy on the inside.

Smashburger: While many chain burgers prefer the thin patty, Smashburger has a substantial bit of beef between two eggy buns.
