I gotta tell you, folks. I love a good CHEESEBURGER. Not all the time, mind you, but every once in a while...yeah...bring it on! So I have to be honest that I was pissed that I missed National Hamburger Day.

National Hamburger Day falls on May 28th--EVERY YEAR--and I missed it...Damn. I guess I'm going to have to make up for it when May 28th rolls around again and perhaps try and eat two of those suckers!

Tell me, residents of the Berkshires, were you even aware that Massachusetts has one of the best cities for burger lovers in the entire country? Oh, you were aware of it? Then why didn't you tell me???

Lawn Love recently conducted one of their awesome studies. Their objective? To find the Best and Worst Cities for Burger Lovers in 2023. And I can happily report here and now that Boston landed in the top 5!

And I can also state that (as a qualified burger lover) some of the BEST burgers I've ever had the pleasure to chow down on were found in Beantown. Have you ever sampled some of Boston's Best Burgers?

There's Tasty Burger. Hojoko. Boston Burger Company. Lola Burger. The Capital Grille. Oh my goodness, I can't forget Charlie's Kitchen in Cambridge and their Double Cheeseburger King! The Patriot Burger at Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage! And that really is just the tip of the iceberg!

I'm getting way off-topic here (and super hungry too!). Lawn Love compared the 200 biggest U.S. cities based on four main burger categories and nine key metrics including burger access, quality, ratings, etc.

Here are Lawn Love's choices for 2023's Best Cities for Burger Lovers:

  1. New York, NY
  2. San Francisco, CA
  3. Chicago, IL
  4. Los Angeles, CA
  5. Boston, MA
  6. Minneapolis, MN
  7. Washington, DC
  8. Pasadena, CA
  9. Miami, FL
  10. Fort Lauderdale, FL

Showing the burger some love (whether it be "ham" or "cheese"!), Boston is ranked at #5 and based on numerous past experiences, my stomach can agree! Also according to Lawn Love, here are the top 5 for 2023's Worst Cities for Burger Lovers:

  1. Paterson, NJ
  2. Miramar, FL
  3. Pomona, CA
  4. Thornton, CO
  5. Chula Vista, CA

And there you have it. If you truly love great burgers, take a look at the full rankings on Lawn Love's website here. Who knows? In your future travels you just may find the perfect burger. If you haven't already.
