The Squeezeburger from Squeeze Inn Hamburger - a small Northern California chain with less than 5 locations.
I love the quality of the hamburger patty - it's always juicy and fresh tasting. The buns are perfect, but the mouthwatering part is all of the melted cheese everywhere. I pick off the edges of the cheese first before biting into this delicious burger, and wash it down with an ice cold beer!
100% beef, 1/3 lb., mayo, mustard, tomato, lettuce, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun

The Angele Hamburger from Angele restaurant, a French bistro located in the Historic Napa Mill walking distance from the Inn.
The Angele burger is a local favorite. Angele specializes in excellent cuts of meat, and you know the patty is going to be spectacular: cooked perfectly and with amazing flavor. I enjoy it with a glass of their house red. Right now that's a Cotes du Rhone.
Local, grass-fed beef with choice of cheddar, blue, or gruyere cheese. Avocado, Bacon, and Fried Egg available as well. Comes with French Fries (in a paper lined clay pot) and served with ketchup and aioli.

The grilled ½ pound Fume Ground Chuck Burger from Fume Bistro, a popular local bar, and grill.
Whenever I need to take my husband out for a burger, I take him to Fume. This is a man-sized burger with lots of options and a relaxed environment with a full bar. We enjoy our hamburger with a full-bodied red -- the 2011 Hess Collection, 19 Block Cuvee, Mount Veeder, Napa Valley. Oh, and we like to go on Monday's for dinner when burgers at the bar are half priced.
100% Angus beef served on a Buttercream Bakery (local) brioche bun and offered with lots of options: grilled onions, Applewood smoked bacon and mushrooms.

Sometimes a visit to Napa is like that first year in college - you leave with great knowledge, an amazing experience, and an extra pound or two around the waist.
