America’s burger obsession is nothing new. But these days, chefs across the country are reimagining the classic beef patty-and-bun combo.

 Saltie Girl

Offering up a totally new take on surf and turf, Saltie Girl in Boston tops its signature three-beef burger with fried lobster, house-cured pork belly, Gruyère, avocado and angry sauce (house-made spicy aioli).


 Tavo Burger

It doesn't get better than the grilled Wagyu beef burger at Tavo in NYC. The indulgent dish is loaded with pan-seared foie gras, avocado, sharp cheddar, a portabello mushroom and bacon, and served on a brioche bun.

 The Daniel-San Burger

East meets west at Ohana Burger, an Asian fusion burger joint in L.A. The top seller? The Daniel-San, which combines marinated Angus beef, chile mayo, a fried egg, furikake, caramelized bacon, crispy onions and spicy miso sauce.


 Cindy's Casa Burger

Created by supermodel Cindy Crawford as part of Umami Burger’s Artist Series, the Casa Burger boasts two jalapeño-and-beef patties piled high with smashed avocado, butter lettuce, oven-roasted tomato, miso mustard, caramelized onions, American cheese, tortilla chips, salsa brava and queso fresco. Order it and you’ll be chowing down for a good cause: a dollar from each burger sold is donated to the American Family Children’s Hospital. 


 Terlingua Burger

The best way to eat Fritos? On a burger, of course. The Terlingua Burger at Hopdoddy Burger Bar in Austin is topped with chili con carne, Tillamook cheddar, Fritos, sassy sauce, red leaf lettuce, white onion and sliced beefsteak tomato.


 Rise N’ Shine Slider

A slider counts as a burger, right? It does when it’s topped with bacon, cheddar, smashed tater tots, truffle honey, aioli and a fried quail egg—like this one from Ricky’s South Beach.

 The Ballpark Burger

An ode to nearby Dodger Stadium, The Ballpark Burger at PS 213 in Downtown L.A. combines everything you love about a ball game into a winning burger: a beef patty smothered in beer-cheese fondue and piled high with beer-battered onion rings, avocado and pickled jalapeños. It’s all piled atop a pretzel bun.


 Chimichurri Burger

April's chalkboard special at Pincho Factory in Miami: the Argentine-inspired Chimichurri Burger, an all-natural beef patty brimming with provolone, spring mix, tomato, grilled onions and peppers, and homemade chimichurri crema.


 Bagel Burger

What better way to start your day than with a bagel burger—oozing with egg yolk, "rooster ketchup" and lots of cheese—from Abigaile in Hermosa Beach, California?


 Odd Duck Burger

Odd Duck in Austin, Texas, "keeps it weird" in the best possible way by piling house-made American cheese with green chiles, refried bean mayo, pico de gallo, cabbage and a tostada, atop a toasted sesame seed bun.
