1. The Barrel Burger

Where: Cornerstone Barrel House (1456 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48226)
Why: Cornerstone Barrel house is a funky place in Downtown Detroit. While it functions as a whiskey and sports bar, if you go downstairs you’ll find a techno and jazz bar. Sounds a bit wacky, right? Well the burgers are to die for. We love the Barrel Burger. The patty is made from a prime custom beef blend, and the burger comes covered with “Barrel Sauce,” aged cheddar, lettuce, onion and tomato. It is juicy and delicious!

2. Über Burger

Where: HopCat Detroit (4265 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48201)
Why: The Über Burger at HopCat Detroit is a killer, spicy burger that we can’t get enough of. You better come hungry because it is a lot to handle. Check it out: a 10oz porter braised beef paty, topped with jalapeño-bacon mac & cheese, beer cheese sauce, haystack onions, and blue cheese-black pepper mayo all stacked between a jumbo English muffin. Are you drooling yet? You also need to order a side of Crack Fries to make the meal complete.

3. The Lola

Where: BSpot Burgers (176 N Adams Rd Rochester Hills, MI 48309)
Why: BSpot has so many incredible burgers it is hard to pick a favorite. But we love The Lola. While we aren’t always a fan of eggs on burgers, the flavor combinations at BSpot are killer. The Lola is a juicy burger topped with a sunny side up egg, bacon, pickled red onions and cheddar cheese. YUM! You also can’t go wrong here with the Fat Doug (burger with coleslaw, pastrami, stadium mustard & swiss cheese).

4. BBQ Bacon Slider

Where: Green Dot Stables (2200 W Lafayette Blvd Detroit, MI 48216)
Why: Green Dot Stables specializes in small bites and sliders. There are so many sliders to choose from you’ll have a hard time deciding what to go for. Luckily they are all only $3 so you can mix and match. But our go-to here is the BBQ Bacon Slider: a beef patty, with sweet potato-Housemade BBQ Sauce. You also can’t go wrong with the Corned Beef or the Cuban.

5. Topor Burger

Where:  Mercury Burger Bar (2163 Michigan Ave Detroit, MI 48216)

The Topor Burger is a thick, juicy burger that comes topped with: Corktown’s own “Topors” Hungarian hot peppers, grilled onions, cheddar, fried egg, hot sauce, burger sauce, and crispy onion straws. It is a cozy family friendly spot that kids and adults alike will love. Plus, they also serve great sandwiches, hot dogs and sides like poutine fries. Come here hungry and leave full.
