I am glad that you mentioned Sizzler. I had forgotten about them. They do in fact make an excellent burger. A bit expensive but with imported ground beef.

A couple of weeks ago I was in Chiang Mai. There is a new burger place on Moom Mueang Road near then end. It is almost next door to Maddog Restaurant which is also near the end of the road. This place is amazing and has about 25 different burgers, ribs salads and a few other things. I can't remember the name. It is very beautiful and simple inside. The service is good and the food was good.

I have not had a burger at Sizlers but have a couple of times had a beef pattie made of shredded beef with roast potatoe and salad bar and find it an excellent meal. They seem to have it in two sizes. The smaller one for lunch is more than adequate. Australian beef.

Barry's restaurant has been shut for months. Hungry wolf's as recommended by others I find good. Plus they have Belgian beer on tap and some Oregon micro brews in bottle.

The C Word has sliders that are decent. I have yet to try the VW van place but am intrigued to do so.

Thanks for tips so far, looks like quite a few nods for Hungry Wolf. I will go there first

Donald, I am not to worried about meeting my specs. I've been in Thailand 12 years so my standards are very low.

If your standards are that low, then any Brit-inspired eatery with so-called burgers made from unidentifiable meat and meal should suffice.

Find the local Burger King. The new Burger X-T is Australian Angus beef with cheese and bacon and the best I have in Thailand in ages. Not cheap at 238 baht just for the burger or 280 or so for the set. Damned fine eating. i had one today.

Chiang Rai is not good for food even trying to find a place to eat Chicken noodles is difficult

When my hamburger craving hits, I head for Duke's in Chiang Mai. Worth the trip.

Long way from C/Rai to go for a burger.

The SanFran placed mentioned is in a lot outside yes?

Had a wonderful burger there a few weeks ago, but not sure if they are still there.

I had one horrible service experience at Hungry Wolf, but their food is pretty good.

Wow, I am guessing that Belgium beer on tap must be really expensive no?

What is the name of the place near Doi Chang?

The local Burger King for Chiang Rai is 200 kms away in Chiang Mai.

Good lluck finding a burger that meets your specs in Chiang Rai. Since I closed Don't Cafe I have given up eating outside except for Thai food.

The other big problem for making at home is to find decent ground beef that is not filled with gristle. A solution for this is buy the top round in bulk at Makro and grind at home. You many need to add a little ground pork in order to get the fat content up to 30-40%.

Best of luck and please let us know if you find the right one.

You are definitely right about making your own at home. I do and have ever since I came to Thailand. Was sick and tired of trying to find someone who knew what they were doing. I buy quality beef and pork mince from Makro, it costs a little more but is so worthwhile. I also buy hamburger buns, with sesame seeds from the same outlet, then toast and butter them.

Cook my onions, add shredded lettuce, beetroot, if it's to you liking and if you want the works, just add bacon, egg and sliced pineapple. You then top it off with either BBQ or tomato sauce. . With the buns, I buy four packs at a time and freeze them. Thaw them in the microwave for 30 seconds on high. God, just made my self hungry, I have two for tea. Try it and enjoy, you will not go and buy another

SanFran burgers are nice but very small. Without a doubt the best burgers are at Hungry Wolf's, the pizzas, lasagne, spaghetti & balls etc etc etc are all top notch too.

I think the salad bar adds a lot to the Sizzler experience - it is a decent burger and you know what you are getting.

I would try Don's place, he has been here 40 plus years, I guess he knows about burgers.

Should I squawk Troll at this post, it seems to be the fashion these days.

He's not a troll, but anyone who calls Chiang Rai 'the Rai' needs drawing and quartering, immediately. Along with the little snots who call Malibu 'the Bu'...

No hamburger for you!
