If you are going to experience the meal properly, you might as well get one of the best ones. So, where do you go, and which burger do you get?
The Emmy Burger – Pizza loves Emily, Brooklyn, New York
This burger is so special that they only make a limited number every night. You can’t make any modifications or substitutions because they know that it is perfect just the way it is and that’s how it should be enjoyed. In-between the two slices of the chewy pretzel bun is a dry-aged beef patty, aged Grafton cheddar cheese, Korean chili sauce and caramelized onions. If you can get your hands on one of these magnificently messy burgers, you’ll be one of the lucky ones.
Single Cheeseburger – Au Chival, Chicago, Illinois
With a steak knife stuck through the centre, even the presentation of this burger is great. This burger, although listed as “Single Cheeseburger” has two patties with pickles, cheese and a wonderful sauce. If you want to add a little something extra you also have the option of adding egg and bacon. As simple as it sounds, this is definitely one to go for if you are in Chicago.
Party Melt Burger – Better Luck Tomorrow, Houston, Texas
This burger is a James Beard Award-winning chef’s burger. It comprises of a juicy beef patty, broiled cheddar cheese, thinly sliced red onions and caramelised onions.

The Deep End – Pool Burger, Austin, Texas
