If you’re dining at Marlow’s Tavern, the Classic Tavern Burger is a must. While the burger is simple, the delicate seasoning and fresh toppings take it to a whole new level. The burger comes with a toasted sesame brioche roll and the delicious house-made tomato bacon jam.

BurgerIM Gourmet Burgers

If you’re dining at BurgerIM, you need to try the Spanish Beef Burger. It’s a nicely grilled patty topped with grilled jalapeño, leaf lettuce and pepper jack cheese. The flavors go together wonderfully, but the jalapeño peppers add a kick of spice that isn’t for everyone.

BurgerIM also offers you a choice of premium toppings, but I recommend adding bacon for some extra crunch. If you aren’t sure what kind of burger you want, BurgerIM also gives customers the opportunity to try multiples with their duo or trio packs.

Farm Burger’s No. 2 Housemade Veggie Burger is another great alternative for vegans or vegetarians. The patty is made out of quinoa, black-eyed peas, kale, roasted mushrooms, sweet potatoes and spices that pull all the flavors together.

Veggie Burger pairs well with the Farm Burger fries, which are hand-cut, tossed with spicy garlic and covered in parmesan and herbs. For dessert, indulge in the Farm Burger classic chocolate milkshake, which gets sweeter with every sip.

Even though Cheeseburger Bobby’s classic burger is legendary, the Bucket List reigns supreme. This dish, which can be ordered off Bobby’s Specialty Burger List, includes two perfectly grilled beef patties, a fried egg, an onion ring, American cheese, Bobby’s sauce and a pickle.
