3. Bareburger 

Bareburger is a casual, eco-minded regional chain for organic burgers (from beef to bison) with a great selection of beer & wine. The burgers are so pretty you nearly don’t want to eat them. Nearly!

Add some crispy onion rings or sweet potato fries on the side for a real treat.

4. Flip Side Easton

Flip Side is a chef-driven burger, shake and craft beer concept by Shawn and Tiffany Monday and Michael Schwartz. While the burgers are insane, it is the fries that go with them that will truly blow your mind.

Salty, crispy, and downright delicious.

5. Harvest Bar + Kitchen 

Harvest Bar + Kitchen is best known for their pizza menu but they always have a juicy burger on the menu. Like us, they love a good burger and believe in keeping it there for a “little bit of variety”. Hopefully something this good stays on the menu forever…

6. Pat and Gracie’s

These smash-cooked burgers are served with two fresh (never frozen) 3-ounce USDA choice beef patties. With an extensive menu and build your own burger option, there’s something for everyone here!



7. Rockmill Tavern

Rockmill Tavern is a rustic spot with great local beers and food.

This burger is always a great go-to when you want something a little bit classier than a simple cheeseburger. The Tavern Burger comes with bacon jam, pickled onion, extra sharp Tillamook cheddar, ciabatta and dijonnaise.
