For all hamburger lovers, this blog (referencing the blog and infographics by Venere.com)will 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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
