Eight Great Burger Joints

You can get a pretty decent burger almost everywhere in Boston. But where do you go for a burger that is worth both your time and your money? ¬† Whether you like your burger old school- a simple patty with lettuce, tomato and mayo -or a gourmet behemoth with all the fancy fixings, here’s a guide to some of the Boston area’s best.

Of course, you can find all sorts of hamburgers at Fenway Park. But the Met Bar and Grill is Fenway Park’s ¬†(Map) only gourmet hamburger purveyor. Order the “Vermont- The Farm” with organic Vermont cheddar cheese, a fried egg, bacon, ¬†and an egg on a seven-grain bun.

Johnny’s Luncheonette (30 Langley Rd., Newton)(Map) A neighborhood spot which has achieved wide acclaim in the Boston- area for its burgers. You can’t do better than the ¬†50’s burger ($7.50)- a classic burger with lettuce, tomato, onion and Johnny’s Luncheonette’s special sauce .

Fans of the ¬†DC- based Five Guys burger chain will also need to head out to the burbs- ¬†this time to Dedham- to get their fix of Five Guys’ heavenly single and double burgers (Burger and fries $12)(170 Providence Highway, Dedham)(Map).

Some of  the best sliders around Boston can be found at Sel de la Terre (774 Boylston St., Boston)(Map). The Mini-Burger Monday Menu features gourmet $2 dollar sliders at the bar every Monday from 5-7 PM.

Winner of a recent “Boston Burger Bash” competition, ¬†the Four Seasons’ (200 Boylston St., Boston)(Map)Bristol Burger is pricey at $19, but you do get 8- ounces of burger greatness, truffled fries, impeccable service, and a stellar view of the Public Garden.

Audubon Circle (838 Beacon St., Boston) (Map) Shh! If you like Audubon Circle’s burgers($9), please don’t tell anyone else- they really are ¬†a step above the rest, reasonably priced, and there is already a wait to get in.

UBurger (636 Beacon St.,Boston)(Map) serves a really good fast-food style burger made from beef that is ground fresh in-house daily . The Boom Burger ($5) is a favorite- topped with fried jalapenos, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and chipotle sauce.

Mr. Bartley’s Burger Cottage (1246 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge)(Map) is a Harvard Square institution. Over the years, Mr. Bartley’s burgers have won countless “best-of” awards and the kitschy decor just adds to the experience. ¬†Be prepared to pay around $10 for your gourmet burger and fries, and it’s cash only.
