If you ever want to argue with someone ask them what their favorite food might be.

Better yet, ask them the best place to get their favorite food. Those two questions are bound to have differing opinions no matter who is involved in the conversation.

That's why I found a new study taken by the Harris Poll finding Five Guys as the top burger joint so interesting.

According to Yahoo! Finance, the Harris Poll ranked the restaurants "based on familiarity, quality, and how likely they are to consider purchasing its items."

The Five Guys in Rockford is located at 611 Highgrove Place just off of Perryville Road near Panera Bread and Chipotle.

Rockford residents disagree with the national poll. Five Guys ranks as only the 6th best Rockford burger joint.

The five best Rockford burgers, ahead of Five Guys, according to Yelp:

  • 5. Pete's Tom & Jerry's  5446 E. State St.
  • 4. Portillo's Hot Dogs, 6090 E. State St.
  • 3. Vintage@501 501 E. State St.
  • 2. Buddy's Burgers 6551 E. State St.
  • 1. 15th & Chris 201 15th Ave.
