5. Rustic Canyon

Rustic Canyon Website

1119 Wilshire Blvd
Santa Monica, California
Country: The United States of America

Description: The burger at Rustic Canyon is one of the best in the United States, and it also has one of the highest price tags I’ve ever seen on a burger at $18.00, so it better be good. Featuring a patty made from short rib and brisket which is cooked with precision and very tender. On top of the patty is a perfectly prepared onion fondue, confit bacon, white cheddar, housemade pickles, and herb remoulade. All of this is put between a perfectly soft and neutral brioche roll to be a melt in your mouth combination of flavor. The fries and drink selection are also top notch at Rustic Canyon. After eating this burger I pondered whether I had the room (and the cash) to eat another right then and there.

4. The Attic Ale House

4247 E Indian School Rd
Phoenix, Arizona
Country: The United States of America

Description: The Burger at The Attic is one of those burgers you can judge on looks alone. A glistening patty of beef that sits atop a pretzel bun stacked with fresh and well thought out ingredients. The full list of ingredients consists of a bakery-fresh pretzel bun, 1/2 pound of juicy beef, spring mix, tomato, chipotle mayo, and your choice of cheese (and you have to add the optional bacon). The burger pairs many complementary flavors and a blend of sweet, savory, and spicy along with the combination of fresh premium ingredients that will make your mouth water. I'd personally suggest adding on the bacon and selecting provolone cheese. The chipotle mayo does plenty to bring a little bit of kick for your tastebuds. Egg was offered as an upgrade/option but I believe it wouldn't do much to complement all the veggies on the burger, and it would make the entire burger unmanageable. This gem is like hitting the jackpot... easily the best burger in Phoenix.

3. Holeman & Finch

Holeman & Finch Website

2277 Peachtree Road
Atlanta, Georgia
Country: The United States of America

Description: This is a featured burger. It has been identified as one of the Best in Atlanta and The United States. The burger at Holeman & Finch is not listed on the menu... and only 24 double patty cheesy morsels are made each night. Get there early and make sure you reserve yours before "burger time". Numerous sources confirm this is one of the best in America.

2. Kuma's Corner

Kuma's Corner Website

2900 West Belmont Avenue
Chicago, Illinois
Country: The United States of America

Description: Burgers Perfected.

The Led Zeppelin at Kuma's Corner is amongst one of several masterpieces. A soft and tender pretzel bun combined with a sweet pulled pork, acidic pickles, melted cheddar, and a 10 ounce juicy patty of beef cooked to perfection. The sweet, salty, savory, and acidic elements add a complexity that makes every bite satisfying.

Kuma's isn't just a one trick pony - their menu features over 10 gourmet combinations of burger science. The beef patties at Kuma's are a one of a kind combination of spices, juiciness, and grilling perfection. The burgers are finished in a salamander to melt all the flavors together, and the result is a devotion to the love and care of burgers that is unrivaled. This results in several burgers under one roof that all deserve a top spot. If you are in Chicago you must visit Kuma's Corner.

1. Au Cheval

Au Cheval Website

800 W Randolph Street
Chicago, Illinois
Country: The United States of America

Description: A pictures is worth a thousand words... and look at this picture... BURGER PERFECTION. Au Cheval has a contender for the world's best burger and tops the list of the best burgers in Chicago. Au Cheval's burger blends amazingly juicy and tender beef with melted cheese, egg, and thick cut bacon in a rich, messy, and completely transformational burger experience. I demolished this burger faster than my waitress could believe. The combination of juicy beef and creamy cheese along with the soft + pillowy bun make this burger seemingly melt in your mouth.

I'd recommend getting the single with the egg and bacon (you must get the egg and questions). I got the double but removed one of my patties since it was "almost perfect" and only manageability was holding me back. Once I downsized to the single I had burger ecstasy on my hands.

This burger is mastered like no other on the planet. If you're in Chicago get yourself over to Au Cheval now.
