Blogger Matt Bites on Chimichurri, the Dominican hamburger: "In the simplest of terms chimichurri is a Dominican hamburger. But a burger of the highest, messiest order and one that left me swooning and pining and all those other hyperbolic terms we love to use. Imagine a soft bun, a patty, grilled tomatoes and onions, cabbage (sometimes quickly pickled) and dollops of mayonnaise and ketchup. It's messy, greasy, and one of the tastiest things to pass my lips in such a long time."
Chicagoist hits up Top Notch Beefburger on the Windy City's South Side: "The burgers here, hand formed from fresh beef ground daily, take you back to a time when GIs walked the streets with pockets full of money, ready to cut themselves a slice of good time. Which makes sense, since the place dates all the way back to 1942. After sixty-five years, you'd think they could do this in their sleep." 2116 West 95th Street 60643; 773-445-7218
La Jolla, California Burger Lounge: New burger joint serves grass-fed, free-range burgers: "And then there's the special taste of grass-fed beef.
