I was talking to a friend the other day and we were discussing what Detroit Restaurants and bars had the best burgers. For most, it is very easy. For others like me it is very difficult to name just one place who has the Best Hamburger in Detroit. I personally have different favorites for the different type of hamburger I may want and where I might be on a given day. I think the only thing my favorite hamburgers in Detroit have in common are cheese and bacon. This list will be added to and revised as I visit more Detroit Restaurants and bars. So here is my list of 5 hamburgers in Detroit that don’t suck.
Sandy’s by the Beech is a long time Redford staple and the burgers are so fresh and juicy. When I am here I like to order the Bacon Cheeseburger with Cheddar, what you add to it after that is completely up to you. 1/2 lb burger with fries $7.95.
Eclipse Hamburgers located in Sterling Heights is a nice burger joint. Here I order my burger with Bacon and White Cheddar. Again, whatever you do to your burger after that is up to you, given the numerous toppings from which they have to choose. They 1/2 lb burger, fries and drink for $8.99 and they do deliver.
Jay’s Stuffed Hamburgers in Downtown Plymouth is a fast favorite of mine. I love how they stuff the cheese and toppings inside the burger (hence the name). Here I like to get the All American which is stuffed with Cheddar Cheese (other options are available) served on a toasted Brioche bun.
When I am in the Royal Oak/ Clawson area I like to stop in at Tavern on the Main. Here the Tavern on the Main Burger is my selection, a 1/2 lb burger, bacon and Swiss cheese on a Brioche bun always hits the spot.
Shelby Pub & Grill in Shelby Township is an East Side favorite for me. Here I like to get The Works Burger, 1/2 lb burger, with bacon, mushrooms, onions, Swiss and American cheese on a Brioche bun. I also like to upgrade to the Waffle Fries.
