While Lynn might be the burger capital, that doesn’t mean it’s the only place to bite into a good burger.
At MarketStreet in Lynnfield, a number of restaurants that also have locations in Boston—Gaslight, Davio’s, Legal C Bar, Yard House and Wahlburgers—all feature delicious burger options. At Gaslight, we sampled the hand-ground short rib burger, topped with caramelized onions, cheddar and truffle mayo and served with hand-cut fries.
In Saugus, Rosaria Restaurant features a rotating burger special on its bar menu, made with grilled sirloin and topped with either blue cheese and crispy bacon or barbecue, aged cheddar and bacon.
Brodie’s Pub in Peabody was the clear victor in Bates’ Facebook poll to determine the best burger in Peabody, outscoring competitors Stonewood Tavern, the Wardhurst, Mike & Lill’s Black Sheep Pub & Grill and Champions Pub. The hand-crafted burger at Brodie’s is made with 10 ounces of ground Angus sirloin. Minimalists will enjoy the Brodie’s burger or the bacon burger, while the more adventurous might try the chili burger or Philips burger—topped with Italian sausage and sautéed peppers and onions.
