Ten Best Burgers in Palm Beach County

The hamburger, one of America's quintessential comfort foods, has seen a resurgence of late. After all, there's just something to be said about a hunk of ground beef between two slices of bread, a sandwich that is universally loved -- and endlessly customizable. From fast-food restaurants to trendsetting gastropubs, each place has its own version of the "best" burger.

Here in Palm Beach County, finding the perfect burger isn't a difficult task -- it just depends on how you like it done. Some places use nothing but Black Angus beef, others a secret blend of choice cuts. Still others swear it's all about how you cook it, from cast-iron broiler to seared over an open flame. And still more believe that it's all about the bread and that only a brioche bun or sesame studded one will do.

Sure, there are lots of new burger joints vying for top spot -- one could argue too many. Do they deserve a spot on this list? You bet. But we're paying homage to best of the best, the places that have carved a niche for themselves.

These are the burgers that will require you to tuck the napkin into your shirt collar, unbutton your pants, and open wide. These are the best burgers in Palm Beach County.

10. HiWay Burger
One part fast food, one part burger shack, this little slice of burger heaven opened a year ago a few miles west of the beach and a few steps from Atlantic Avenue in downtown Delray Beach. Where Doc's All American off Swinton would typically get the vote for cheap burger and shake shack in Delray Beach, we like HiWay for its simple menu and ridiculously low prices. Especially because nothing on the menu costs more than $6. Even the "Triple Hi Cheeseburger" -- with three patties, a divine melted cheese sauce, and all the fixings -- is only $5.45. Pair it with a milk shake and an order of hand-cut French fries and you're out the door for right around $11.

The Office
9. The Office
Years before burger joints began popping up left and right, David Manero opened the Office in Delray Beach. The highlight of the menu: grilled burgers. Memorable selections include the Prime Office Cheeseburger, delivered beside a heaping pile of shoestring fries. The best, however, is the Prime CEO -- a 26-day, dry-aged natural prime ground brisket served with a sweet onion sauce, tomato confit, blue cheese, Gruyère, arugula, bacon, and "office" sauce.

How this list doesn't include the Brass Ring in NPB is baffling. Long been considered the best in the county.

 The fact that Johnny Brown's isn't on here makes this list a sham - blows at least half of that list out of the water. True story....
