  1. Chewys food truck in Philadelphia - their cajun burger is one of the best I've ever had (their other burgers are great too!)

  2. Local Three in Atlanta does a Burger & Brew on Saturdays that is worth the travel. They feature a traditional burger (or two), a lamb burger, a pork burger and a veggie burger. All fantastic and done on Big Green Egg.

  7. Lockdown Bar in Chicago and Flub A Dub Chub's (which is kinda an underdog because I don't think a lot of people know they have burgers) in Chicago.

    And in Royal Oak, MI there is Red Coat Burger. Yum
