10. Lockdown

1024 N Western Ave
Chicago, Illinois
Country: The United States of America

Description: The Lockdown Warden at the Lockdown Bar + Grill is great culinary execution. A number of ingredients not found in the typical burger make their way into this masterpiece. A certified Angus beef patty infused with bacon, leeks, garlic, and shallots has melted Merkt's Cheddar in the middle of the patty. Top this off with fried leeks and shallots tossed in truffle oil and you have a lot of complex flavor. The melted cheese is rich and the pretzel bun pairs well with the saltiness of the beef. The sweetness from the truffle oil and fried leeks combines perfectly with the bacon and hints of garlic. The amazing part about this much dedication to a single burger is that Lockdown has several more that deserve a top spot on the list as well. In multiple trips to Lockdown I can confirm they are consistent and their burgers always great. Lockdown is devoted to making top quality burgers, and they rank amongst the best in the world. Add in some friendly service, good drinks, and lively music and it's a neighborhood favorite.

9. Miller's Bar

Miller's Bar Website

23700 Michigan Ave
Dearborn, Michigan
Country: The United States of America

Description: Miller's Bar is famous for its cheeseburger in a number of publications. A no-frills bar situated in the Detroit suburbs that is home to one of America's best burgers. It's definitely a local spot and I'm sure they can spot the food critics and tourists from a mile away.

Miller's Bar doesn't employ too much that is special in producing one of the best cheeseburgers in America. A traditional griddle, fresh bun, and a slice of American cheese. The beef has a high fat content and comes juicy, tender, and with a perfect sear. The cheese is gooey & melted, and the bun is very soft from absorbing the heat and steam from beef + cheese. Add on some pickles, ketchup, and mustard and you have perfect execution of the most simple of cheeseburgers. The burger almost melts in your mouth and is the perfect blend of textures. I was not keeping track of the time, but my burger disappeared off my plate not too long after ordering it. I find that all of the best burgers I have eaten have this intangible quality where you keep going back for bite after bite (then are gone before you know it).

Miller’s Bar has the best simple cheeseburger in America. By doing the basics right and picking ingredients that bring the most flavor, as opposed to the most flair they have been very successful.

8. Pono Burger

Pono Burger Website

829 Broadway
Santa Monica, California
Country: The United States of America

Description: This is a featured burger. It has been identified as one of the Best in the Los Angeles area and California.

Pono Burger is a product of Chef Windy 'Makani' Gerardi (of Ultimate Burger, Hawaii). Pono means "to do things the right way"...and the burgers here live up to the saying. Local and organic ingredients are made into a variety of burgers featuring some seasonal rotation. Some of the fan favorites are the Sassy Wahine with housemade wasabi mayo, pickled ginger, avocado, okinawan sweet potato chips, pea shoots, and sesame ponzu dressing ...and The Kuawa Crunch with one year Hook cheddar, housemade russet potato chips, cole slaw, and spicy guava rum sauce.

Pono gets a lot of credit for taking risks and bringing some new ingredients to the burger scene.

7. Honey Salt

Honey Salt Website

1031 South Rampart Boulevard
Las Vegas, Nevada
Country: The United States of America

Description: If you could judge a burger by its looks than Honey Salt would be love at first sight. Soft, tender, shiny, and juicy are not only on the surface. Honey Salt is committed to fresh and innovative food and their burger is no exception. The Backyard Favorite burger features beehive cheddar, tomato jam, butter pickle, and a farm fresh egg. Their Wagyu burger features beehive cheddar, bacon jam, old bay potato chips, and a farm fresh egg. We'd go with the Wagyu for the bacon and egg flavor combo. If you’re looking for one of the best burgers in Las Vegas make your way to Honey Salt.

6. The Company Burger

The Company Burger Website

4600 Freret Street
New Orleans, Lousiana
Country: The United States of America

Description: We decided to visit The Company Burger after hearing how good the meat was. I was absolutely blown away with how tender and flavorful this burger was. I believe that the meat is a mix of chuck and brisket. Whatever they do, they do it AMAZING!! The meat is juicy and packed with taste!! I had mine topped with bacon and egg. In addition, they make their own pickles and mayo. I recommend the Basil Mayo. Also, they have a simple philosophy, "Serve the Classic American Cheeseburger." I say mission complete!
