Richmond Good Life :: Best Restaurants in Richmond, VA :: Richmond, VA's Best Hamburger
Richmond, VA's Best
This list will evolve over time as new restaurants enter, old ones leave or slip.
Of course, meat quality is essential, but there's really not a lot of variation when we're talking about ground beef differences in restaurants (other than hand pressed fresh versus machine pressed frozen and, perhaps, cooking or seasoning technique. Charbroiled is usually better). Instead, what makes an exceptional burger are the supporting actors, the bun and the fries. The freshness of the bread is so essential in completing a hamburger. It's almost as important as the burger itself! Fries are icing on the cake. If you think about it, cakes suck without icing.
|(1) Anthony and George’s||7505 Staples Mill Rd (804) 266-4182|
|This burger has been climbing my charts...Huge charbroiled fresh ground burger with my favorite hand cut fries in the area.|
|(2) Starlight||2600 W Main St (804) 254-2667|
|Soble memorial bacon cheeseburger. Considered a Richmond institution. Not as good as the original; this is just a tribute, you gotta believe.|
|(3) Davis & Main||2501 W Main St (804) 353-6641|
Love the seasoning on this fresh big/flat style burger. The cole slaw is freakin awesome.
|(4) Cuisine’s||9503 W Broad St (804) 747-1000|
|The Spencer is the best patty melt in town. Fresh hand cut fries a bonus. Also, their normal cheeseburger is a steal at $5 on Thursday nights (includes a Fried Pickle!)|
|(5) Big Al's Sports Bar and Grill||3641F Cox Road (804) 270-4454|
|Big Al has the area's best sports bar burger. Though the fresh patty isn't groundbreaking, the bread is incredibly fresh. Enjoy it responsibly with beer and sports.|
|(6) Bogart's||443 N Ridge Rd (804) 285-1603|
Joe Rossi is an awesome bacon cheeseburger (just the right size) with steak fries. A classic.
