Grass Fed Bison Hamburger with Lettuce and Cheese

Everyone does, or should, love a good burger. Hey, even if you’re a vegetarian or vegan, you can enjoy a great meat-less burger, so nobody is left out. As it turns out, Pennsylvania has one of the best burgers in the U.S. Here’s the Michigan best burgers news.

The story comes from Yelp, who used Yelp reviews to crown the best burgers in America. “From bacon-barbecue burgers to hummus-topped veggie burgers—and even sushi burgers (yes, that’s a thing!)—they’re one of the most searched foods on Yelp,” the study says. “But this year, forget everything you know about America’s favorite comfort fare. Based on our patty-loving community’s ratings and reviews, it’s clear that a ‘burger revolution’ is underway!”

Yelp posted this research in honor of National Burger Day, which was May 28. That date is also the official start of burger “search season” on Yelp, which must mean that burger searches spike in the summer. They’ve put together a list of the Top 100 Burger Spots across the U.S. The tally includes lots of choices for different burger types and taste, from fast-food to diners classics to “outrageous stack-ups” and more.

Pennsylvania Best Burgers News:

Also, No. 43 is Food 101 in Gettysburg; No. 75 is Bubblefish in Philadelphia; and No. 94 is The Burgery Company in Emmaus. Find the full list of the best burgers in America here.
