Looking for the best burger in Boston can be like trying to find the biggest sports fan - they're everywhere, and they're serious. Burgers here are just as diverse as the sports fans too - some are diehard, some are out there, and some are just plan wild.
Whatever your preference, there's a burger (or veggie burger) for you in Boston. But burgers don't have to be the big greasy heart attacks that we've known them to be for ages. Some of Boston's best burgers come in fancy and stylish settings, like at Match Burgers & Martinis, at the end of Newbury Street. Get burgers or sliders here, and wash it down with gorgeously sugary martinis for a little extra juice.
For the epicurean burger, head straight to Barbara Lynch's beef empire, the Butcher Shop, which is known for its delectable steaks and beef cuts on Tremont Street in the South End. You'll find an especially upscale burger at the Bristol, which resides in the Four Seasons Hotel on Boylston Street, and a more yuppie-professional burger at the Back Bay Social Club.
In the mood for a veggie burger? Hillstone's is enormous, and puts your average garden burger to shame by making the main ingredient beets, or Uburger, which is a slightly smaller, cheaper and healthier option.
But if what you're really looking for is Boston's best, biggest, pub grub burger, head to places that help you slug it down with a pint of beer, like Rock Bottom Brewery, Joe's American Bar and Grill, or Charley's Eating & Drinking Saloon. Oh, there's also Five Napkin burger, which is truly self explanatory.
