What is the most expensive hamburger you ever eat?

I heard some online friend told me that, at London, a traveler ever order a burger that cost him around $24, including fries and a drink. That is way too expensive for me to taste. I once order a hamburger and fries from Five guys, that cost me over $10 already. I might not try it regularly, even though they are good, I can't afford it though. Also, on creative loafing, I saw a restaurant in downtown Atlanta that is called 5 napkin burger, it cost over $13, including drinks and fries. It is called 5 napkin burger because this burger is so messy with cheese and all other tasty ingredients, that you need 5 napkins at least to clean it up. But that just too much for such economy though. What is the most expensive burger you ever have?

For just the burger itself, I'd say the most I've personally spent is in the $10.00 range. Most "fast food" burgers are in the $5.00 range. And I think In-N-Out and Johnny Rockets are good values re price for quality. I've heard of burgers in the $100.00 range. These might consist of Kobe beef and foie gras.

I think the most expensive was something like $15.00 and included the drink and fries. I usually do not spend this amount for a burger but it was a must order something where we were at. It certainly was well worth it to splurge that day as we were amongst a few at a restaurant gathering. I would not usually go to a restaurant and order a pricey burger like this but I heard it was really good and nothing on the menu appealed at the moment. It is not a place I would intentionally make plans for because there are other restaurants that are cheaper and taste just as good.

The most I spent on a hamburger was $7 Wow 24$ for a hamburger? I hope it was twice as big as a whopper burger, with $24 I can buy me 2 burgers with 3 boxes of fries and 2 sodas lol
