Hamburgers

Restaurants can be broken down into not only different restaurant types but also food types as well. Some examples of these may be – Asian, bakeries, barbecue, coffeehouses, desserts, family style, hamburgers, Italian or pizza, Mexican, sandwiches or seafood.

This page deals specifically with hamburgers. Although most sites wouldn’t give them their own category, I think it’s hard not to with the number of restaurants across our country that focus on that one menu item as its specialty. In addition to that, it is as part of our history and culture as well, apple pie.  What’s your favorite go-to place for this American tradition?
