This list has different burger joints offering different types of burgers that are able to satisfy anyone and everyone’s taste buds.
Linger – Impossible Burger
First on the list is not necessarily a burger joint, however, it still deserves a mention for its “Impossible Burger”. Their famous “Impossible Burger” claims to be the world’s first and only plant-based burger that smells, looks, cooks, and tastes just like a regular beef patty— it even bleeds! Their patty, which is made out of wheat, potatoes, coconut oil, and heme, is described as a “carnivore’s delight that’s light on the planet” for it is entirely made from plants and officials claim that creates a smaller environmental footprint than meat from animals. “It uses about 75% less water, generates about 87% fewer greenhouse gases and requires around 95% less land than conventional ground beef from cows,” the company said in a statement released to the media.
Not only does it benefit the environment, it also benefits our bodies for the burger is produced with zero hormones, cholesterol, artificial flavors, and antibiotics. For additional information, the main ingredient in the patty, heme, is the one responsible for making the patty taste of meat and catalyzes all of the other flavors when it is cooked. So what are you waiting for? Come and taste the Impossible Burger and enjoy it with hummus, dill, Havarti cheese, Israeli salad, sweet potato fries, avocado, and arugula.

Big Al’s Burgers & Dogs
Famous for their 60/40 burger, this burger chain is worth the visit.

Penelope’s Old Time Burgers
Take a step back in time and visit Penelope’s Old Time Burgers. In this place, you will find yourself admiring and be enjoying the old-fashioned atmosphere and at the same time, feasting on their “World Famous” burgers and fries. Penelope’s will take you back in time when hamburgers were made of fresh, not frozen, 100% ground beef and cooked after ordered, giving it a fresh and amazing taste. Moreover, their fries are made fresh from potatoes and not sent from a factory and frozen. One reviewer on TripAdvisor rated Penelope’s 5/5 and stated that “the building is small, old, and really not appealing on the inside, but that isn’t the reason you are there.
The staff was very thorough, polite, and appear to have an above average work ethic compared to some younger people I have seen….If you want a juicy tasty burger then this is the place to go. I haven’t tasted a burger like that in years. They were seasoned just right as well as grilled just perfect. The fries were hand cut and fried to perfection. The place was busy but it still did not take long to get our food. The staff had a system for each task and it definitely works.” So come on! Enjoy a good throwback and post your #throwbackthursday post on Instagram.
