Today, August 25th is National Burger Day. Which is another fantastic holiday.  Especially as a child, I was a burger connoisseur. I had probably eaten one at every restaurant in Charlotte. As I’ve gotten older my pallet has slightly expanded and in an effort to keep my waist from doing the same, I don’t order them for every meal like I once did. But don’t let that sentiment fool you, I still love a good burger! But who has the best burgers in Charlotte? I’m not so sure anymore. So I was excited about making this list. And while the heavy hitters (many of which I love) definitely made an appearance on this list, there were some I wasn’t familiar with (and I can’t wait to try!). In fact, I know what I’m doing for lunch today.

I like mine with lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57, and french fried potatoes. A big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer… Ok, that’s not actually my preference (shoutout to Jimmy Buffett) but it does need to always have cheese. And lots of it. Bacon also helps a burger go from good to great in my opinion. Many restaurants have a special sauce to make them stand out. Or crazy combinations you wouldn’t think of. Do you like yours old-fashioned, fancy, with chili, or plain jane? Fries or Tots? Milkshake, soda, or beer to wash it down? Charlotte has a burger spot for you.

The rankings come from the review site Yelp and are based on the “highest rated” feature. There are 15 burger restaurants all in the Charlotte city limits. For restaurants with more than one location, they are combined and ranked where the highest rated location was. This list features 15 restaurants but there are obviously many other fantastic places to grab a burger. What’s your favorite spot? Let us know on social media.
