by Greer Eat

Burgers are pretty universal, right? Who doesn’t love a meal they can really grab by the buns and tuck into with shameless messiness? Something substantive you can really sink your teeth into. Whether it’s the weight of it all, or the structure that ensures you get a bit of everything with every bite, there’s just something about it that feels ultimately more satisfying.

“But what about vegetarians?”

Please. Vegetarians have been respected in burger bars for a long time now. In fact, burgers they can enjoy feature prominently in this list, making up almost a third of our selections. So, without any burger adieu, here’s our list of 15 bonza burger recipes to fit almost any theme.
