Colorado: Bud’s Café and Bar
> Location: Sedalia

Bud’s, on the edge of the Denver metro area, keeps it simple. Opened in the 1940s, they sell burgers made from locally sourced beef as they have always done. There are very few options and sometimes that’s for the best. At Bud’s what you want is a burger with American cheese on top and pickles and onions on the side.

Connecticut: Louis’ Lunch
> Location: New Haven

How long have hamburgers existed? We’re not really sure but Louis’ Lunch has been around and serving them since 1895 and claims to have invented them in the first place. The restaurant has stayed within the family, and they are currently run and owned by the 4th generation. Their menu is extremely simple and the only foods on it are the original burger, potato salad, potato chips, and homemade pie.

Delaware: Gus & Gus’ Place
> Location: Rehoboth Beach

On Rehoboth Beach’s boardwalk, Gus & Gus’ Place is a staple of this coastal town. They’re known for their fantastic burgers but they also whip up cheesesteaks, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches and breakfast. The place has a small indoor seating area but patrons often just order food at the window and take it to go as they stroll along the scenic Delaware shore.
