I always get asked where my top burger places are to eat here in Charlotte, NC. I have tried so many it makes my list vary a lot. However, I do have a top 5 list.
1. Bang Bang Burger
I love when you can taste everything a chef puts on a burger. Every texture, flavor or seasoning. Its created so that you can still hold the whole burger in your hand, When you take a bite you are about to experience every vision he had when he put this menu together. That’s why I like Bang Bang Burger.
2. Corkbuzz Restaurant & Wine Bar
It's the fanciest, most bougie burger you will ever have. It's called a Beef Bourguignon Burger for goodness sake. It has a red wine fondue, bacon, mushroom relish. This is a DIVA worthy, pinkies up burger. A sophisticated flavor that matches its sophisticated ambiance.
3. Moo & Brew
This is a recent add for me and that’s because of its concept. I love a burger joint that builds your own options as well as their signature. I remember when I first started this burger blog. I went to a spot and decided to try a random burger off their menu. I hated it and judged the restaurant off that burger. I appreciate that Moo & Brew offers you start but sets up the plate for you. Sometimes too many options can overstimulate you but a start can help narrow down to a flavorful opportunity.
4. Corner Bar
When restaurants are intimate and a menu is curated to match that intimacy it’s a food affair that can’t be denied. It’s limited menu only offers 2 burgers, one basic and one BBQ. The Burger is stacked high, the patty is thick and savory, the fixings are crisp and fresh. When you bite into this burger you close your eyes. Mainly because you praying on a nice big bite and also because you know you’re about to be enticed.
Sloppy, greasy and down right home style burgers are what you will get when you go to Brooks. I like to call it the most exclusive hole in the wall burger spot. It has limited hours and lines wrapped around the build. You have to get there early and it is worth it. A thin patty and I like to add cheese. You can add chilli and I do, which is like a dollop and a half. Like a giant scoop of blow your mind chilli. By the time they put the top bun it’s already coming down the sides. Just writing this and my mouth is watering. If you’re looking for a backyard burger and not wearing your sunday best go to Brooks, you will not be disappointed.
