Eater recently published a Burger Heatmap that shines a spotlight on 19 of the most buzzed-about burgers across the country. For the most part, all of the restaurants are less than a year old.

The highlighted burgers include the lunchtime-only burger topped with Comte cheese and spicy pickles at The Elm in Brooklyn, "hand spanked" burgers at Bohemian Bull in Charleston, and Trifecta Tavern + Bakery's pimento cheeseburger on house-made brioche buns, which Portland-based AHT correspondent Adam Lindsley said is the best burger he ate in 2013.

It's worth checking out the post on Eater to see the photos of all the burgers (along with a brief summary), but if you want a quick snapshot, check out the list below:
