2000 Best Burger, Affordable

Mr. & Mrs. Bartley’s Burger Cottage

Burger purists like their patties thick, greasy, and unadorned. They will be most happy with the slab at Bartley’s. But why settle for plain when you can have deluxe? This is a burger institution with a huge list of toppings—from Boursin to barbecue—that will take ground beef into another stratosphere. Great fries and onion rings too.
