Gayot’s Best Burgers in the United States

Gayot, the Guide to the Good Life, recently posted its list of the Best Burgers in the United States. Since I’m all about living my best life, I needed to see exactly which burgers made their list.

Since 1969, restaurant, hotel, travel & other witty reviews by a handpicked, worldwide team of discerning professionals—and your views, too.

I could not find anywhere how the ten ground beef sandwiches were chosen, so I’d rather we focus on who’s on their Best Burgers in the U.S. list instead.

Burger Joint, Cherry Cricket, Farm Burger, and Kuma’s Corner are the four restaurants I was familiar with already, so we’ll skip those. Side note: I’m dying to eat at Farm Burger.

I love that 4505 Burgers & BBQ, a barbecue joint, made the cut. I love a good smokey chargrilled burger, so hopefully, one day, I’ll have the opportunity to enjoy one of those bad boys.

The grilled onions on the Becks Prime and Mr. Bartley’s Burger Cottage burgers will be creeping into my dreams tonight; thank you for existing.

My one real takeaway from Gayot’s burger list is that it’s heavy on the larger patties. It’s odd because of the proliferation of smash burger restaurants and popups around the U.S. currently.

Speaking of which, I’m even more shocked that there is not one Oklahoma fried onion burger mentioned. I’m not so sure that omission is easily forgivable by a true burger fanatic.
