The Best Burgers In The USA


By Scott Kearnan

They’re here: the Top 10 results of Boston’s Best Burger Survey. (If you haven’t already, check them out here.) But as we were compiling the results, it became clear that there were many more beyond the Top 10 that deserved a tip of the hat. So here’s your at-a-glance overview of some honorable mentions that landed outside the elite 10, but still deserve a round of applause. Just wipe the ketchup off your hands first.

Worth the Drive

It’s heavenly. Shout out to the Sin Burger at The Blue Ox in Lynn, which scored strongly and proved that Bostonians will make the 30-minute drive (or train ride) to the smaller North Shore city for chef Matt O’Neil’s burger, topped with applewood-smoked bacon, truffle aioli, and Swiss. It’s been a good month for the burger, which also beat out 20 other patties to win Boston Magazine’s “Battle of the Burger” competition for the second year in a row.
