Looking for the best burger places North Carolina? Don’t you worry! Fundreds has found the 7 best burger joints to grab one in the state. Check it out!

Hops Burger Bar

The produce of North Carolina’s farmlands is featured prominently here, piled high atop Angus patties cooked to a perfect medium (unless you want otherwise). The extensive menu of burgers means you have plenty to choose from, but you can never go wrong with the The Spicy Goat covered in local Goat Lady goat cheese. The menu of fries is almost as long as the menu of burgers, so choose your side wisely as well.

Brook’s Sandwich House

The small shack that houses Brook’s Sandwich House might not seem like much from the outside. But the burgers, dogs, breakfast sandwiches and more that come from within will change your mind quicker than you can say Liver Mush (the dish they might be most famous for). The burgers are juicy and delicious, and more than worth a stop even if you weren’t passing by already.

Emma Key’s

Inside a restored barbershop in Greensboro, the famous flat-top grill sizzles with some of the finest burgers in the city. The restaurant is cozy and inviting, reminiscent of the days where locals walked in for a haircut and a chat, but a seat on the expansive outdoor patio is perhaps the best place around to enjoy a meal.

Pinky’s Westside Grill

Two locations, one in Charlotte and one in Huntersville, give the good people of North Carolina access to phenomenal sandwiches, dogs, tacos, and burgers. Come starving and order the Triple “G,” a behemoth with three 5 oz patties covered in your choice of cheese. If that sounds like too much, there are plenty of other burgers, all influenced by the region, to try as well.

Cowbell Burger & Whiskey Bar

Burgers and whiskey go together like Amos and Andy, Simon and Garfunkel, Cagney and Lacey. It’s one of those match made in heaven combinations, and Cowbell is the place to go. The whiskey list is100-strong to accompany the inspired burger menu, and the whiskey cocktails are fantastic as well if you don’t like drinking straight.

Big Burger Spot

Come hungry. Really hungry. The menu is divided up into burgers that are “almost big”, “big”, or “collossal” and none of them would fall into anything near “small.” Any of the burgers covered in their tasty BBQ sauce are worth a try, but you can get anything from a Philly to a Mediterranean-style burger to suit your mood.

Juicy Lucy’s Burger Bar and Grill

A come-as-you-are burger bar and grill, Juicy Lucy’s has perfected the Minnesota-style cheese-stuffed burger from which they get their name. Also featuring a long list of tap beers, cocktails, and a millkshake bar that is as amazing as it sounds, it’s a great place for a casual bite in Asheville. Keep an eye out for daily, and monthly, specials as well.
