1. Holy Smokes - Charcoal Burger
If you’re looking for a charcoal bbq burger, that has a perfectly pink, medium middle filled with meat juices that can block an artery, Holy Smokes is what you’re looking for.

Try it in a ciabatta or a brioche bun, both are just as stupidly delicious. They also have a lobster roll on their menu that can cure any sadness you have.
2. Bhukkar Khukkar - Butter Chicken Burger
Burgers are an overly saturated market. Bhukkar Khukkar takes fast-food and desi food and mashes them both into a symphony of delicious, albeit confusing flavors.

This is definitely an option for people who are sick of traditional burgers and crave a desi twist in their food instead
