    For what I've had, I'd say Terry's Turf Club, or whatever it is called now.

    Turf Club is good, especially if you're looking for something "exotic" in the way it's made. But, for a regular type of burger, it's hard for me to pass up a Double Zip Burger (with cheese, of course) from Zip's Café.

    I'm partial to Zip's.

    However, I would be perfectly happy with a Swiss Bliss at FlipDaddy's, any number of burgers at Gordo's, a cheeseburger at Quatmann's, or even a cheeseburger at Pee Wee's. Heck, there are days that absolutely nothing sounds better than a Whopper with Cheese or a Wendy's double with everything.

    Bard's Burgers in Latonia (Covington) also serves a pretty good burger.

    I will add, I love the burger at Herb & Thelma's, but if parking is a hassle 100% of the time, I'm going elsewhere.

    Is that the place right on the curve coming down the hill on 25, right before you get to the interstate in Covington?

    Yes.

    Granted, you're walking up a fairly steep grade to get to the front door on Pike Street, but I can't recall a time that I've ever had trouble finding a place to park within about 100 or 200 feet of the place on Western Avenue.

    The best burger I have had all year was at Peecox Erlanger. I had a double cheeseburger which equates to a 1 pound burger (with everything on it) and again it was the best burger I had all year.

    Where is this at? It's the first time I've ever heard about it.

    I've tried all of the others except Gordo's. None of them shocked me....

    Then here you come, blowing my mind. I don't know that I've ever looked at Peecox and decided I wanted to eat there! Now I'll stop just driving by.

    It's up in Norwood at the corner of Montgomery Rd. and Quatman Ave. just across from the Holy Spirit Center.

    Honestly, that would probably be my default position too but I hangout there on occasion because they have some solid bands, they have good security, and the staff is friendly.

    When you put all that together I thought why not try it and I am so glad I did. Now when I go there I always know if I want to eat I am in business.
