Who Makes the Best Hamburger in Grand Rapids Michigan?

So lets cover what exactly are the specs for the BEST Burger? Starting with Fresh, never frozen, beef(bison, ostrich, elk, whatever). Fresh ground if possible but if not, at least quality meat that has been lightly packed into a patty. It has to be seasoned and at least 1/3 pound to even be considered. Grilled/seared and cooked to the perfect temperature are mandatory. Then fresh toppings have to be used and creativity can be a plus. Lastly, do not SKIMP on the bun..this can ruin a great burger.


So here are just a few places around town that serve up great hamburgers.
