5 Essential Steakhouse Burgers

Not all steakhouses are equal, and not all steakhouses have burgers. (How dare they! And in this day of aged beef, they dare). We’ve got our picks of some of the top houses, with grounds for beefing it up, usually at the bar or just for lunch. What’s your favorite steakhouse burger and when it is time to indulge?

Abe & Louie's: If you're looking for something sort of fancy, yet not pricy and business-like, head to this Back Bay stalwart, and tuck into nine ounces of ground sirloin topped with aged Cheddar cheese and caramelized onions ($13; 617-536-6300).

Capital Grille: For lunch and dinner order you can tuck into an Angus beef patty that’s ground to about 10 ounces, mixed with minced white onion and bacon, cooked to order, nestled on a brioche onion roll, and topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle ($16; 617-262-8900).

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar: Here’s the deal at this Park Square steakhouse, and what a deal it is: order the Prime Burger between 5-7 PM at the bar (they are only open for dinner), and you get your burger with cheese and peppered bacon for only six bucks. After 7 PM, you pay double. Then again, that’s a steal, too (617-292-0808).

Mooo…: Looking for meat, we mean a lot of it? Take your time at the bar at this tony steakhouse on Beacon Hill with this 12-ounce sirloin burger topped with Vermont cheddar, sautéed onions and, of course, fries ($16; 617-670-2515).

Ruth’s Chris: This Beacon Hill steak shrine offers a lunchtime only burger of prime ground beef, topped with your choice of cheese, then the classic fixings of lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle, served with French fries ($13.50; 617-742-8401).
