Burgertown, USA: America’s Most Unique Burgers

For all hamburger lovers, this blog (referencing the blog and infographics by perk your day up.

Note the hamburgers featured in their infographic are apparently for the truly adventurous eater. Whether you like to sample unusual flavors — peanut butter and jelly on a hamburger?! — or you simply want to eat as the locals do (think po’ boy), these unique burgers offer something different for everyone and represent their cities’ unique character and flavor.

The sizzling selections in “Burgertown, USA: America’s Most Unique Burgers,” is likely to spark a heated debate, but it inspired me to check out four of them a few months back. Can’t say much about them being appealing enough to return for more, but simply said, there’s a new experience in every town, around every corner, and on every table.

Most unique burgers in America

San Francisco

The Cable Ground Beef Steak at Joe’s Cable Car

Steak is ground fresh on-site! Toppings are standard lettuce, tomatoes, onions and pickles, but the burger is a favorite for its low fat content: 6/8%.


Peanut Butter & Jellousy at Slater’s 50/50“PB&J” revisited! The patty is covered with bacon and topped with creamy peanut butter and strawberry jelly for an ideal salty/sweet combo.

San Diego

Antelope, Buffalo & Kangaroo Burgers at Crazee Bruger
Crazee Burger has plenty of “regular” burgers… but that’s not the real attraction! You’ll also find ostrich, alligator and wild boar.

Las Vegas

$777 Kobe Beef and Maine Lobster Burger at Le Burger Brasserie

A Kobe beef patty topped with a Maine lobster tail, caramelized onions, crispy prosciutto, brie and special aged balsamic vinegar, served with a $700 bottle of Dom Perignon champagne.


The Fat Elvis Burger at Lockdown Bar & Grill

The Fat Elvis burger mixes sandwich with burger: an Angus beef patty with bacon, peanut butter and banana. It’s a hunka hunka burger heaven.

New Orleans

Hamburger Po’ Boys (everywhere)

What makes a po’ boy a po’ boy is the bread: French baguettes. For the true New Orleans flavor, get your po’ boy burger topped with fried oysters or crawfish.


Themed Burgers at Mr. Bartley’s

Top your fresh patty with almost anything! Ordering is fun, since all burgers here are named for local celebrities: the “Scott Brown” has bacon, cheese, onions and jalapeños.

New York City

Schnitz Burger at Schnitzel & Things

Based on Austrian schnitzel, the Schnitz Burger is a 1/3 pound, panko-crusted Angus beef patty deep-fried and served on ciabatta bread.


The Picnic Burger at Disney World’s Sci-Fi dine-in Theater

This flame-grilled burger is topped with a sliced hotdog, sauerkraut, sautéed onions, mustard, ketchup and a dill pickle spear. PHEW!
