Jay Leno once asked Guy Fieri (the awesome host of Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives) what is the best hamburger in America? Guy said that the best hamburger in America is in San Diego BUT the second best hamburger in America is in Sacramento, California at a place called the Squeeze Inn. When our good friends, Brent and Marie, told us about this we immediately headed over to the tiny dive and got some highly coveted seats at the counter (there were only ten seats and we occupied five of them).
The atmosphere was awesome and the food was amazing. The place was exactly how dives are portrayed in the show- small, loud, and run by a few trendy yet intense cooks at the grill. If you ever go there you need to get the cheeseburger. They melt the cheese right on the grill, making it crispy and oh so good. The fries are spot on and the buns are brought in fresh everyday.
I don't know about you but I love it when cheese gets crispy.
What's the best hamburger you ever ate? If you ever are in Sac, let me know and we'll go to the Squeeze Inn together.
