You'd be hard-pressed to find a Bostonian with something negative to say after tasting chef Tony Maws' burger at Craigie on Main, featuring a big, grass-fed patty, ground up with bone marrow and charred on a plancha. The burgers Tony loves in his home city are the ones that strike a nostalgic chord in the chef's heart and palate, burgers that taste of his childhood and a time long-past—burgers so nostalgic, in fact, that one of them is sadly just a memory. Here are Tony's top five burgers in Boston.

This, folks, is the Craigie on Main burger served at Tony Maws' restaurant in Central Square, Cambridge. It's one of the finest versions of chopped-beef-on-bun you will find anywhere, and it's no accident that it is.
Charlie's Kitchen in Harvard Square is correct in calling its double cheeseburger "famous." Charlie's has been around since 1951, and scads of historically significant people have walked by in burger-eating frames of mind. I bet Obama's had one of Charlie's double cheeseburgers, and all manner of Afflecks, Kennedys, and Wahlbergs are liable to have as well, along with tons of big-mouthed magazine editors and food bloggers. This is indeed one very well known burger. It is not, however, a very well made one.
