 Top 10 Burger Joints in Kansas City

We are a country that loves a great hamburger.  In fact, last year in the United States more burgers were sold and served than any other item in restaurants across the country.  We have everything from the $1 double cheeseburgers at America’s biggest fast food chain to the $175 Kobe beef burger topped with gold flakes and black truffles at the Wall Street Burger Shop in NYC.  With new chain places and local establishments popping up all the time, how do we wade through the choices to determine where to get the best burgers in KC?  Fortunately for you, we’ve done just that and are prepared to share our findings with you.

Personally I’ve tried the burger at over 50 places around town using suggestions from places like Urbanspoon, Yelp, and other local blogs in the last year and still feel like there are places I have overlooked or don’t even know about.  So just like my thoughts on Bar-B-Que, some of the best burgers in KC come from some of the most unassuming places.  So if you know a place that should be on the list send it my way.

If you suggest a place and I haven’t been there, I will go try their burger.  If it makes my list, I’ll send you a $10 gift certificate to said burger joint and your next one is on me.
