The Baltimore Sun lists the Top 10 Burgers in Baltimore:

  • Heavy Seas Alehouse Burger is served on a brioche roll, the signature burger is a half pound of Angus beef, topped with Double Gloucester cheese and onions smothered in Heavy Seas Peg Leg Imperial Stout.
  • Crosstown Burger at Hamilton Tavern is Roseda Farm beef, shredded iceberg lettuce, onion and horseradish cheddar. Add “sticky-spicy” bacon or a fried egg for $1.
  • Pat LaFrieda Burger at The Food Market is dressed with lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese and pickles. The secret, chef Chad Gauss says, is the diced bacon, which spreads the bacon flavor evenly on the burger.
  • Classic Bacon Cheeseburger at Of Love and Regret starts with a custom-blend of all natural hormone-free chuck and rib eye. It’s served on a toasted kaiser roll with Bibb lettuce, tomatoes and pickles.
  • Prime Rib Burger.
  • Woodberry Kitchen Burger is now a permanent suppertime feature at Artifact Coffee.
  • Burgers at Kooper’s Tavern are made with Creekstone Farm Black Angus beef, and the new brioche buns are from Stone Mill Bakery.
  • Ring of Fire Burger at Golden West is a Springfield beef patty topped with roasted jalapenos, chipotle ketchup, hot sauce and queso blanco cheese.
  • Harry’s Bistro Burger at  The Abbey Burger Bistro is made with Roseda Farm beef and topped with cheddar, bacon and an egg, sunny-side up.
  • Alonso’s Famous Burger is the only burger in Baltimore that can legitimately call itself famous, and it lives on, at everyone’s favorite Keswick hangout.

If you are in Ellicott City, go to Bare Bones Bar & Restaurant in St. John’s Shopping Center and get the Bare Bones’ BBQ Burger with bbq sauce, aged cheddar, applewood smoked bacon, and fried onion straws. Any burger at Bare Bones is yummy and tastes like it is hot off the grill. Each burger comes with two sides – try the Corn Fritters and Apple Sauce.
