Best hamburger in the nation? Ray’s Hell Burger. Those are strong words, but for those of us lucky enough to go to Ray’s Hell Burger in Arlington, Virginia, you know what I am talking about. The burgers are HUGE, the meat is freshly ground right in the store (in fact, I think the legal name of the LLC is Butcher’s Burgers), and the place is a big ol’ dive. They’ve cleaned up the place since its become a frequent meeting place for President Obama, Vice President Biden and foreign leaders, but it still has the same “charm.” If you are ever in the Washington, DC area, be sure to make the trip, its just over the river in Virginia, and is a shiny place of food happiness.
