In celebration of comfort food season, we want to highlight the best spots for the best burgers in BG! Whether you like it with cheese or no cheese, all the condiments or none, we want to be able to point you to the local favorites. That’s right, we asked locals what their favorite spot was for a burger and they delivered. Also, if your favorite isn’t on this list, let us know about it! We don’t want the best burgers to be the best-kept secret - we need to tell the world.
