Most folks skip right over the rest of the menu and look straight to the barbecue platters at this ever-expanding barbecue spot, but the burger deserves a look. A blend of chuck and brisket, the Roadhouse comes with your typical ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, and cheese, but add the sliced brisket for an additional two bucks and you won’t feel bad about ordering a burger at a barbecue restaurant.
列表中的最新， 哈里特’s Hamburgers’ exquisite blend of Black Angus short rib, brisket, and chuck charred and double-stacked with white American cheese, house-made pickles, ribboned red onions, and 哈里特’s signature sauce on a buttery brioche bun is a must-try. Each bite of mouthful of meaty, cheesy goodness satisfies that urgent burger craving. The teams behind Papi Queso and The Plaid Penguin are behind this masterpiece, and they sold their first 100 burgers in less than two minutes at a preview event this summer.

里德’s Fine Foods
里德’s steakburger is the gourmet market’s answer to the fast-food staple. The eight-ounce patty is a mix of ground filet, sirloin, and rib-eye, and comes with lettuce, tomato, and your choice of side (we recommend the truffle fries). If the $15 price tag is too steep, come on Tuesday for lunch or dinner at any one of their locations and get the almost half priced steakburger special. This is one gourmet meal that’s completely acceptable to eat with your hands.

Everything on the menu is meant to be paired with wine 这里, so it’s surprising to see something often preferred with beer. Topped with bacon; a soft, somewhat sour cheese called quark; pickles; a fried egg; and a roasted shallot aioli, this burger calls for something fancy—一杯金斯敦西拉（Kingston syrah），如果您问老板兼侍酒师劳拉·曼妮（Laura Maniec）。

Chevre? Ah, oui. This burger joint has a pretty simple concept: burgers and beer, the beverage that goes easily with burgers. That doesn’t mean they can’t be fancy, too. The Rocket Turkey burger has a patty of farm-raised ground turkey, chevre (goat cheese), arugula, a balsamic fig spread, and roasted red pepper—everything you never thought to put on a burger, but should have.

柜台的座位是硬塑料，但很舒适。任何其他材料对于Chubz Famous Chiliburgers的所有者来说都是一笔投资。它’要在汉堡上保留风味浓郁，牛肉重的辣椒，就像在这里不要吃得太饱一样，非常困难。
Order at the counter to the right, a burger topped with chili and all the fixin’s, then hop up into one of those hard seats at the bar. See what other guests have written in chalk along the short strip of blackboard between the dining counter and the kitchen, scribbles and doodles. When one of the owners, Antonio Watson, yells“Order!”and grabs his spatula, a show begins—part comedy, part kitchen dance.
He hurls well-meaning insults to Steve Kalik, the man who started this place in a strip mall on Woodlawn near I-77 in 2013 and brought Antonio on as a partner. Wisecracks fire across the stove in response to kitchen orders. With each ring, there’s a debate over who should answer the phone. An iguana in a cage near the window pays no mind. It’s the kind of place you can come alone, but you’ll still find yourself in good company. Antonio wraps your chiliburger in paper to help you hold it, and as he passes the paper basket across the chalkboard messages, he gives you some advice with his nose-crinkling smile.
这次，你不’不需要提醒。您拿起汉堡：两只手。 —Kristen Wile

克朗克尔顿可能以鸡尾酒而闻名，但该地点还提供美味的时令菜单。最受喜爱的企业之一ées是恰当命名的 一个非常好的汉堡，您可以在上面添加一个 fried duck egg or 炸牡蛎（还有其他选择），您可以吃得更饱腹。
布鲁克斯’ Sandwich House

It’s a tough call, given strong challenges from The Diamond in Plaza Midwood, 小指’s Westside Grill in FreeMoreWest, and the newly established Billy Jack’s Shack in NoDa, with its aptly named“Napkin Burgers.”But a burger is a working-class meal, and our homing device still points us to 布鲁克斯’humble red hut and the heft of those rough-hewn burgers with homemade chili. Eat’em there, using the unvarnished wood shelf in the gravel parking lot as a makeshift table.

Chef Greg Auten created what is now 小指’s best-selling sandwich, The White Trash Burger, when he was looking for a creative way to use the uneaten fried pickles an onion rings he had to toss every day. The five-ounce burger (you can make it a double for $2 more) comes with provolone, fried pickles, onion rings, and spicy ranch. You can customize any one of 小指’s championship burgers with your choice of toppings (“Westside”style includes mustard, chili, slaw, and onion), but the White Trash burger is more than enough on its own.

It’s one of those specials you don’t know about until someone in the know tells you. And once you’re in the know, you’re there…a lot. From 5 to 6:30 p.m., this SouthPark spot serves a $5 burger at the bar. No, wait, they serve a $15 burger for just $5—a half-pound patty made with ground sirloin and served with a side of fries. Just don’t tell all of your friends; we enjoy being able to get a seat.
