Best Burgers of 2012

Winner RibbonHere is my list of the BEST BURGERS OF 2012.

  1. The Palace Classic Burger at Bobby’s Burger Palace in Hanover, MD (score: 9)
  2. My “Build Your Own” Burger from the Kooper’s Chowhound food truck (score: 8.5)
  3. Black Angus Cheeseburger from Sean Bolan’s in Bel Air, MD (score: 8)
  4. Gourmet Burger at Sammy T’s in Fredericksburg, VA (score: 8)
  5. Sliders from Main Street Sliders in Newark, DE (score: 8)

If you are in the Baltimore area these restaurants (4 restaurants, 1 food truck!) are all local or all within driving distance. I recommend that you try all of them at least once 🙂 I’m definitely looking forward to checking out new restaurants in 2013 and bringing you more burger reviews.

An honorable mention goes to the place this food blog began… the Olympia Dairy Bar in Carney’s Point, NJ where my favorite is the 1/3 lb Burger cooked-to-order. I can’t wait for the 2013 rodeo season to open so that I can start making the trip up to Cowtown again!


Best Burgers in Harford County 2012

Winner RibbonHere is my list of the best burgers in Harford County for 2012.

  1. Black Angus Cheeseburger at Sean Bolan’s, Bel Air.
  2. Roadhouse Burger at Darkhorse Saloon, Bel Air.
  3. Rootie Toot Burger at Mamie’s Cafe, Aberdeen.
  4. Western Burger at Magerks’s, Bel Air.
  5. Jake Burger at Jake’s Wayback, Abingdon.

All of these burgers scored an impressive 8 out of 10. I am looking forward to 2013 when I will get the chance to eat a whole bunch more burgers in Harford County. Who knows… I might even find a 9 out of 10!

Is this the best burger in Harford County?

Dad drove into Bel Air and we met up with Mom for lunch. After a quick vote we decided to go to Sean Bolan’s on Main Street. Mom had to get back to court ASAP so she just ordered a salad. I didn’t have to get back to court (I’m only 11 and I haven’t passed the Maryland bar exam yet!) so I ordered their Black Angus Cheeseburger.

OK burger dudes! This burger was pretty awesome!

“A half-pound of char-grilled Angus beef cooked to your order and served on a fresh Kaiser roll. Topped with lettuce, tomato, and your choice of cheese: American, Swiss, Irish Cheddar, or Provolone.”

I ordered my 1/2 burger patty “medium well” and it was still full of juices and not dry. I had Irish Cheddar on top and it was really sharp. The cheese had melted right over the top of the burger and that was FANTASTIC!!!

I also had lettuce and tomato on my burger. Dad says that doesn’t actually count as a salad, but I think it does. My parents keep telling me to eat my vegetables and I think the best way to eat them is as burger toppings.

I award this burger a score of 8 out of 10. I think it might be the best burger I have eaten in Harford County so far.

I wonder what a few slices of thick, smoked Irish bacon would be like on this burger? Mmmmmm…. bacon! I bet that would make it 8.5 or 9 out of 10.
