We Love Their: High on Fire, Lair of the Minotaur
This burger is near perfect, composed of two prime beef patties and plenty of cheese, all on locally-baked buns. If you’re gluten-free, don’t worry—they have a hash brown bun! The burger is topped off with lemon juice, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and housemade pickles, plus whatever you choose to add on.
People wait for hours to have a taste of Au Cheval’s scrumptiously stellar Cheeseburger, so line up now!

TOP NOTCH BEEFBURGERS
Top Notch Beefburgers, a long-standing, old-school burger joint might be a bit of a greasy spoon, but just one bite of this burger is worth hanging around in the divey environment. What we love about this place are its choices: you’ll choose between ¼, ½, and ¾ pound burgers, different types of cheese, and different condiments.
Just grab yourself a shake to go along with your burger and you’re all set. For a cheap, iconic burger, don’t pass up Top Notch Beefburgers.
