Best Burgers East of the Mississippi?


Hey Chowhounders. I'm headed east for 2 weeks' worth of meetings. Where are the best burgers to be found east of the Mississippi? I'm open-minded: I don't frown upon chains or upscale digs... just looking for the best ground beef between 2 buns.

I will be in Cincinnati, Tampa, New York, and Baltimore. Any leads are appreciated!!

  1. Try and find Steak and Shake. There are some in North Carolina. Im not sure if they are in any of the states you are visiting.

      Morton's puts together as decent upscale burger.

      In Baltimore and NY, 5 Guys -- folks love 'em or bash 'em -- is a good, cheap chain worth a stop, although quality does seem to vary by location.

      1. Hi, you will want to post separate queries on the Midwest, Florida, Manhattan and D.C. boards, which are the local boards for each of your destinations.
