6. Zark’s Burger
If you want a quick burger fix, Zark’s won’t disappoint. The classic taste and hefty size of their burgers are enough to keep your cravings satisfied. The best part?

5. 8 Cuts Burger Blends
Juicy and greasy—this is how everyone likes their burgers, and 8 Cuts Burger Blends has truly mastered it. What sets this joint apart from the others is its customize-your-burger offering where you can select from 8 cuts of 100% U.S. beef meat (chuck, rib eye, short rib, sirloin, brisket, hanger, flank, and oxtail). Pair it up with their addictive skinny fries and you’re in for a treat.
4. Sweet Ecstasy
Perfect for the midnight crawlers, Sweet Ecstasy is open until the wee hours. This American diner-inspired burger place has been famous for its no-frills cheeseburgers that are best enjoyed with Sweet Ecstasy’s classic vanilla milkshake on the side. P.S. They also offer an alcohol-infused milkshake.
3. B&B Burgers and Brewskies
If you love a good burger-and-beer combo, B&B Burgers and Brewskies will hit the spot. But apart from that, this burger joint wins when it comes to fillings—one of their best selling ‘Call the Nurse’ burger, for instance, is packed with a hefty amount of beef patty, bacon, mac and cheese, cheese sauce, and spicy mustard. Who can say no to this?

Burger Geek takes their burgers seriously. For proof, they formulated a special “Geek” sauce and a cooking method for the best-tasting patties: chefs smash or press the patties down when being cooked to develop an A+ crusty exterior with a juicy center. Treat yourself to their best selling ‘Class President’, a stack of American cheese, smashed patty, lettuce, tomato, crispy bacon, shiitake mushroom, onion rings, and BBQ sauce!

The Beef is definitely one of the go-to stalls at Hole in the Wall. It boasts its tagline “The best uncluttered burger on this side of the planet.” Their soft, buttery, and juicy cheeseburger (with a side of fries, no less!) will make you forget your name. Their no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point burgers are what makes The Beef a must-visit on your burger joint checklist.
