10 Best Burger Joints in the US

Perfectly cooked patty, with caramelized onions, juicy slice of cheese, don't we all just love a tempting hamburger once in a while? Here are few places in the US that all burger-lovers must watch out for. They're not only finger licking good, they're very affordable too!

Bless Your Heart’s Cheeseburger, Portland

John Gorham's projects don't always age well. The globe-hopping restaurateur's debut, Toro Bravo, is a classic, but we've lately been less enthused about other spots in his empire, even including the Tasty N Sons bruncherie, a former Restaurant of the Year.

Chris Madrid's, San Antonio, TX

This San Antonio joint is serving up some unforgettable cheeseburgers that are not to be missed.

The Company Burger, New Orleans

There are a few different burger options here — including lamb and turkey — though owner Adam Biderman seems to have included them begrudgingly. To him, the whole restaurant is about a single item, called the company burger or simply "the burger." Its composition is not up for debate, much less customization.

Gabby's Burgers

“Ooey-gooey and delicious” burgers “stand out” from the crowd at this Nashville “institution” drawing lines “out the door” for locally sourced, grass-fed beef patties, “addicting fries” and milkshakes; “limited” lunchtime hours come with the “greasy-spoon” territory, but for a midday bite “there isn’t a more jovial” staff around.

Hiho Cheeseburgers

Grass-fed Wagyu beef burgers and fresh-cut fries star at this casual counter-serve in Santa Monica, a reboot of the original (and shuttered) location up the coast in Ojai. The modern yet barebones eatery evokes a roadside stand with simple counter stools, small tables and an open kitchen grill.

keller's Drive In

For a true old-school experience (since 1963) and a griddled burger on a toasted poppyseed roll, fast-food fans head to these cash-only joints where the neon shines bright, the carhops bring the food to your vehicle and the beer is always cold. Along with burgers, they're known for their tater tots – not fries.

Nation kitchen and bar

This trendy Over-the-Rhine joint offers hearty burgers with names like Whiskey Bacon and the Quesadilla alongside inventive potato sides, a deep beer list and signature cocktails. The brew taps are made of iron pipes, the bar back is crafted from wooden crates and there's seating indoors and out.

Pie'n Burger

“What the name says is what you get” at this Pasadena “classic” that's been putting out “juicy” griddled burgers, “heavenly” pies and “superior” shakes and malts since 1963; the decor “hasn't been updated since Jimmy Carter was in office” and service “runs the gamut from accommodating to hostile”, but true fans cheer that “it still delivers.”

Tookie's burgers

Down-home joint serving signature burgers & other casual fares in rustic environs with vintage decor.

White Hut

White Hut falls a bit short on the beef barometer; no fault of their own, churning out mass quantities of burgers is the goal, and technically speaking they are successful. But the bland beef is hard to escape, most certainly originated from a frozen patty, there is almost no seasoning to speak of. Maybe it’s unfair to be so tough on a burger that costs less than $3, but still, it’s hard to overlook the mediocrity of the beef.
