Brew City Grill and Brew House

This popular haunt on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester lets you Build Your Own Burger with the very best in all natural, grain fed beef from American Kobe to Piedmontese, and a variety of toppings that include everything from candied bacon to jumbo fried ravioli. Or check out one of their signature burgers like the Aloha, a Hawaiian blended coffee encrusted ground buffalo topped with grilled pineapple, smoked pork, and havarti cheese.

Cedar Street Grille's Burger for Breakfast, Sturbridge

Who says you can’t have burgers for breakfast? The Cedar Street Grille is known for their inventive menu, and they’ve added a burger fit for breakfast made with eggs and bacon on their brunch menu. These burger sliders come with double the bacon - applewood smoked bacon and Canadian bacon – and then are topped with an egg and cheddar-beer sauce. Pair your breakfast sliders with stuffed French toast and a handcrafted Bloody Mary and you’ve got the perfect burger for breakfast or brunch. Two sliders for $9.

2oven's Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza, Shrewsbury

It’s just like eating a cheeseburger, but on a pizza! 2ovens out of Shrewsbury Mass cooks everything out of their two Italian wood burning ovens - that means you won’t find any cooktops or fryolators in site. Where else can you get a burger cooked in a 650 degree oven on scolding hot skillets? The bacon cheeseburger pizza is topped with certified angus beef, spicy aioli, lettuce, seasoned diced tomatoes, and hand cut pickle chips. $10 for a small/$16 for a large.

Hailed as one of The best Barbeque Restaurants in New England and some say in the country*, BT Smokehouse is so cool even Gordon Ramsay had to check it out. But it’s not just about BBQ. Each week the smokehouse releases a new “Local Burger” that uses ingredients from nearby farms, like this burger made from Walnut Lane Farm grass fed beef, Grafton Village Cheese Company Clothbound Cheddar, Overlook Farm Fresh Egg, Crispy Pancetta with Lilac Hedge Farm Pork, and beet ketchup on a baker bill brioche bun!

Vintage Grille's Bumper to Bumper Burger, Worcester

This is the burger that’s known to turn heads. Even though it’s stacked what seems like a mile high with bread, burger, and toppings, the owner claims no one leaves anything behind. It just must be that good! Set in an old auto warehouse, The Vintage Grille has a vintage auto inspired menu and décor. What used to be the garage door now opens up to an outdoor patio on Shrewsbury Street. The “Bumper to Bumper Burger” starts off with a quality certified angus beef patty, which is layered between two Texas toast grilled cheese sandwiches that act as buns. From there it gets traditional with lettuce, sliced tomato, onion, pickle chips and thousand island Dressing. $11.99

The Fix's Crunchy Burger, Worcester

The Fix's Crunchy Burger, Worcester

The lifestyle magazine Thrillest named this burger from The Fix one of the 19 Best Burgers in Massachusetts. The Fix’s burgers have an earthy, rich flavor they account to their house grind made of 60% chuck and 40% short rib. The Crunchy is served with lettuce, fried prosciutto, parmesan crisp, potato chips, garlic mayo, and a mustard pickle on a sesame bun. Wash it down with a slow-churned milkshake for the ultimate burger experience in Central Mass. $13
