Summer is hamburger season. (But then, what time of the year isn't the right time for hamburgers?) Green-chile cheeeseburgers at the Steuben's truck at Civic Center Eats. JCBs on the patio at My Brother's Bar. A big burger for a growing boy in this Guess where? post yesterday.
But sadly, there's no sign yet of a new Walk-In Burgers.
News that a place named Nobu is going into the one-time home of Walk-In Burgers on Sheridan Boulevard brought out fans of the former occupant:
I miss Walk In Burger!!! Please open up a new restaurant somewhere! Best sweet potato fries and best Quinoa/Veggie burger!
Since closing I have tried Smash Burger, Five Guys, and a few local joints -- for the money nothing comes close to Walk In Burger. I sure hope they re-open at a new location.

What should replace the Tarbell's burger on this list? Post your favorite spots below.
