With four locations around the city, these guys serve up super tasty and simple burgers that don’t go overboard on the toppings. They also nail the “frites”, which in a country where they’re practically religion is seriously important.

Chow down on the best seasonal ingredients at Cool Bun, where, unlike the name suggests, burgers are flame grilled and smokin’ hot. The beef here is organic and farm fresh. So, you can order exactly how you want it cooked, from blue to well done.
