The cheeseburger has a long history in America, and its evolution is one of great benefit to foodies worldwide. No matter the toppings, the best burgers start out with quality ingredients and fresh, never frozen, beef.  We’ve scoured some of your favorite cities to find the best cheeseburgers, and they don’t at all disappoint. From simple house-made toppings like pickles and secret sauce, to the more decadent renditions featuring foie gras bordelaise and Wagyu beef, every palette will find something to love on this list!
