7 of the Most Insane Burgers You Need to Eat in the US

They are the backbone of everyone’s family barbecue, the cash cow of the fast food industry, and thankfully for those who like to think outside the box — they come in a million different varieties! Burgers are a real pride and joy of our nation, so it’s no secret we would devote a whole month to them.

With the weather warming up and a new month ahead, it’s no wonder May is National Hamburger Month. Hallelujah! While burgers were a standard dish at one point in our country’s history, today restaurants are surprising patrons with crazy concoctions that can burn through your mouth, be stacked as high as your face, or so fancy that they cost more than a day’s work. Sure, most of us celebrate this every day, but the fact remains that the hamburger is definitely worthy of its own month.

Since the smell of burgers alone gets our stomachs rumbling and our taste buds drooling, we’ve done all the homework for you! Pack your bags, we’re heading on a road trip and sharing seven of the most insane, crazy, mouth-watering burgers in the U.S. that you definitely need to try.

The Kooky Canuck

Address: 97 South Second St., Memphis, TN

The south has its fair share of big burgers, but none is as more beloved than this one. With almost eight pounds of pure beef on a freshly baked bun, topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles, ‘The Kookamonga’ is one burger that makes for a very delicious challenge. If you can eat the whole thing in under an hour, it’s free and you get your photo up on Kooky Canuck’s Wall of Fame.

Mother’s Grille

Address: 1113 S Charles St., Baltimore, MD

Named the Ultimate Burger in Maryland by the Food Network, ‘The Heart Attack’ is the grand hockey puck of burgers, given its brightness and appeal. This beer-battered bad body is hand-packed and stuffed with cheddar cheese, deep-fried, and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and onions, accented with a dollop of homemade chipotle mayonnaise.

Bayou Burger

Address: 503 Bourbon St., New Orleans, LA

Located on the most famous street in town, Bayou Burger and Sports Company is an incredibly fun, casual and relaxing environment for friends and family to refuel, especially after a hard night of partying. Enter ‘The Ultimate Cure’ — a specialty house burger made with two burger patties, hugging a grilled cheese bacon sandwich, topped with lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onions and Tabasco mayo on a brioche bun. It’s a menu item that is flagged for its excessive deliciousness and we can’t blame them!

Hollywood Burger

Address: 6250 Hollywood Blvd,. Los Angeles, CA

With its extravagant menu, this glittery burger joint in the heart of Hollywood brings the fun of Tinseltown to your taste buds! While its collection of burgers is mouthwatering and unique in style, its chicken burger titled the ‘The Blvd.’ is the one to try. Made with crispy fried chicken, spicy slaw, dill pickles and chipotle honey sauce, it’s a menu item that packs a punch in flavor.

Redeye Grill

Address: 890 7th Ave., New York, NY

This restaurant is as chic as they come! Located directly across the street from Carnegie Hall and close to the Lincoln Center, the Redeye Grill puts a spin on the classic American restaurant with an innovative menu appealing to foodies of all sorts — like their ‘Sushi Burger.’ Yes, you read right. Made with spicy yellowfin tuna, seaweed salad, watermelon radish, ginger and avocado topped on a tamanashiki rice bun, it’s a burger you’ve never imagined with flavors to die for.

L.E.S. Kitchen

Address: 15 Essex St. Ground Level, New York, NY

You know when a place gets named for the “Best French Fries in NYC,” it’s also got an abundance of delicious, tantalizing burgers for your hunger’s indulgence. Moist, tender and just enough spiciness, the ‘Mac Attack’ is a carb lover’s dream come true. While it’s not exactly packed with a ton of toppings, the beauty and tasty appeal comes from its cheddar cheese sauce and the macaroni and cheese inside.



Address: 33-06 Ditmars Blvd., Astoria, NY

This ‘90s themed burger joint has been named Astoria’s “Best New Burger” and dishes up inventive options in a funky space with a DJ. With an eclectic menu of food and drinks, its ‘Atomic Bomb Burger’ is a tantalizingly, lip-smacking burger you must try. Made with your choice of beef or chicken, this holy meal of a burger includes macaroni and cheese with cheddar and Sriracha Aioli. Fiery, moist and full of flavor, it’s one to love.
