3. Russell House Tavern

14 John F. Kennedy St
Boston, Massachusetts
Country: The United States of America

Description: Russell House Tavern took the burger and messed with convention. The R. House Grass Fed Burger comes on an English muffin. Between that muffin lies 8 ounces of Maine Family Farms ground beef, sharp cheddar, bacon, and caramelized onions. This melty creation is juicy and has an excellent blend of flavors. The aioli on top paired with the ketchup and caramelized onion makes a combination of creamy, salty, and savory that will wow your taste buds. The English Muffin holds the entire package together and soaked up the juices. This is a premium bar burger that took a gamble that paid off big. It's a bit like a breakfast sandwich on steroids (and that's a good thing in this case).

1. Craigie on Main

853 Main St
Boston, Massachusetts
Country: The United States of America

Description: The Local Grass-Fed Beef Burger at Craigie on Main is one the hardest burgers to get in the United States. A secret menu item limited to only 18 burgers a night. I showed up early to wait to enjoy this combination of Shelburne Farm cheddar, mace ketchup, house-made bun, and house-smoked bacon.

The bun is tender, beef is juicy, bacon is salty, and the pickles pack a punch. The onions are sliced thin, which is good for the texture. The final toppings on the burger are a melted slice of cheddar...and some lettuce which may be better left off (however it added a splash of color for my photo). My only issue with my burger was that the house-smoked bacon was a little tough (almost like beef jerky), however I loved its peppery flavor. All of these flavors work together brilliantly and the taste of the meat is the star. The meat is very juicy, tender and perfectly cooked. The ketchup, pickles, cheese, and bacon create a savory palette that complements but never overpowers the beef.

This is probably one of the best burgers in Boston, and one of the best in the country if the bacon was not so tough like the burger I experienced.
