Speaking of burgers… there have been many ‘Best Burger’ lists around town, including ours from ‘09, and Bauer’s recent commenter poll. But now SFGate’s BayList voting app — which can be slow and crashy but we digress — has tallied 70,000 some odd votes and come up with the top six. Number one (which we think speaks to the demographics of a large segment of SFGate readers, or to Silicon Valley’s e-ballot-box-stuffing prowess, but we digress again) is a chain with a location in Palo Alto called The Counter.

None of these winners, with the exception of Burgermeister and Barney’s, were on our or Bauer’s lists, so take this with a grain of salt.

The list of winners is as follows:

#1: The Counter, Palo Alto

#2: Gott’s Roadside Tray Gourmet, Ferry Building

#3: Pearl’s Phat Burgers, Nob Hill

#4: Barney’s Gourmet Hamburgers, Noe Valley

#5: TIE - Burgermeister (whose burgers, despite making our earlier list, are not exactly consistent in quality and we’d never put them near the top five… could this chain have done a little ballot-box-stuffing, perhaps?)

AND - Rocker Oysterfeller’s Kitchen + Saloon, Valley Ford (Sonoma)
