Happy Hound: Great burgers, and you gotta love those fries. 15899 Los Gatos Blvd., Los Gatos. 408.358.2444.

In-N-Out: Everybody's favorite fast food burger chain. Read the coded message on the underside of the drink cups for a surprise. 5611 Santa Teresa Blvd., San Jose.

Johnny Rocket's: The retro image can be a little much, but it doesn't affect the quality of the burgers. Locations in Campbell, Milpitas and San Jose.

Juicy Burger: A perennial South Bay favorite. 375 S. Bascom Ave., San Jose. 408.295.4510.

Kirk's Steak Burgers: With locations in San Jose and Palo Alto, Kirk's has been serving up beefy burgers for more than 50 years.
