Best of Boston, an experiment

Ok, I want to try a little experiment. I'd like all who choose to participate to list -- without any further discussion -- your top three burger, pizza and lobster roll places in Boston. These are three particularly controversial topics on this board, each of which generates pages of discussion. But let's see if we can do it without discussion; just list your favorites. Please only include places you've been to, and although you have to limit your list to three, you can include less. Once we have a good number of responses, we can then all chime in with how we would each manipulate the data to reach whatever conclusion we want to advance. I'll go first:

Burger:

1. Bartley's
2. Bristol
3. The Druid

Pizza:

1. Regina
2. Santarpio's
3. Upper Crust

Lobster Roll:

1. B&G
2. Neptune (hot)
3. Neptune (cold)
