Here in the Bay, good burgers are a dime a dozen. But a spectacular, knock-you-off-your-feet version? That's a little harder to come by. Not to toot our own horns, but we consider ourselves experts in this heavenly sinful category, devouring these concoctions on the regular.
So, we rolled up our sleeves and gobbled up tables upon tables of delicious concoctions— all in the name of solid reporting, of course. From super messy, how-do-you-even-eat-this-thing patties to low-key yet high-impact versions, feast your eyes on some of the best creations we've tried in a long time. (Hey, if you ask us, every week should be Burger Week.) Seriously — get those stretchy pants out, because these burgers take no prisoners.
