There are five Lee's Hamburgers scattered around the New Orleans Metropolitan area that all serve similar grilled onion-topped burgers, but they're not part of a chain. Who is Lee and why are so many places selling his burgers?
'aht review' on Serious Eats
The toppings on at least one of this fancy banh mi joint's burgers are enough to make a purist reconsider a predilection for the simplicity of beef and bun, but no toppings, innovative or otherwise, can save a lackluster patty.
Get a tasty chargrilled burger with chips and a drink for a mere $5 during lunch at this new casual spot in Hillcrest.
Burgers loaded up with julienned beets, Edam cheese, pineapple, a fried egg, aioli, and tomato chutney can be yours at Queenstown Public House in Little Italy.
The cheeseburger at this pool-side bar and restaurant in downtown San Diego won't change your life, but the view just might.
The Pastrami Burger at Jeffrey's Grocery is great, but its $19 price tag is hard to swallow.
The 'Influential' Burger (That Influences You to Order Chili Dogs Instead) at The Varsity in Atlanta
Two chalky-brown industrial patties wedged between a flattened bun that hadn't even been fully split, with cheese that's not really melting so much as drooping with sadness at being exiled to this travesty of burgerdom. How is this "influential"?
Portland Penny Diner, a cheap eats lunch spot from one of Portland's most respected chefs, sells a simple burger at a price equal to its value. That price is $6.95.
In a world so inundated with meat innovation and extreme toppings, sometimes you need an everyday burger like the one at Grain & Gristle.
This stylish new spot in downtown San Diego serves an awesome upscale burger that's totally worth the investment.
Ink & Elm is pretty up front about wanting to be both "casual" and "comfort-driven," yet "refined" and a "destination." That can be a tough twofer to pull off under one roof. So it's not surprising that Ink & Elm's signature burger has a little Jekyll-and-Hyde thing going on, too.
Atomic Burger arrived on the local fast food scene late last year with the promise of freshly made and unprocessed drive-thru food. We found some beautifully griddle-charred burgers and a couple of other welcome surprises.
On Tuesday nights, Sprecher's offers a burger deal were you can get a burger and any of their beers or sodas for just $8. There's an extra $2 charge for some of the more massive burgs, but that's hardly a sticking point when it comes to these big, bold beauties.

Designed in collaboration with Ink chef and former Top Chef champion Michael Voltaggio, this burger is topped with Busseto prosciutto and Gruyère fondue and served on a French toast-ified bun dusted with powdered sugar. A first glance it seemingly appeals solely to gluttonous masochists and lovers of a good culinary mashup. Sadly, I am both.
The newest burger from Jack in the Box features a beef patty with bacon mixed right into it, hickory smoked bacon, and creamy bacon mayo sauce on a new "gourmet" brioche bun. Clearly, we had to try it.
Seafood-centric restaurants that put special effort into serving a better than average burger have a special place in my fish-averse heart. Spike Africa's is one of those places.
While they're fancying up the bookends by going all ciabatta on you, Wendy's has also quietly upped their game with a few new toppings. It all makes for a tasty-as-hell-sounding burger, but the reality is far less impressive.
