There are few menu choices as ubiquitous as the hamburger. And yet, there are few dishes as excitingly versatile and universally beloved. Topping options are nearly endless, from the classic lettuce and tomato to pepper jelly and bone marrow. You can get several stacked high. Or even choose a meatless patty. And paired with a salty side (fries, chips, or onion rings—yum!) and a sugary soda or crisp beer, there are few meals more satisfying to each and every one of your taste buds.
Are you drooling yet?
