There's nothing better than that first chomp into a delectably greasy burger. Whether you're going the fast food route or classing things up a bit, that all-American beef patty with whatever desired amount of fixins is a menu item that can never go wrong. In order to get the real experience out of eating a burger, you must have an open mind and be willing to take it for what it truly is - a concoction of several ingredients that equals an extremely delicious dish.
With that being said, we've rounded up a list of burgers throughout the new New York area that will definitely hit the spot in honor of today's monumental occasion, National Cheeseburger Day. These patties range from the traditional to the not-so typical, whether sirloin or short rib, all complemented with a heaping amount of fries. We hope you're hungry.
