Kansas: Grandstand Burgers

Kentucky: Laha’s Red Castle

Laha’s has been around since 1934. They have burgers, chili dogs, regular dogs, chicken nuggets, French fries, onion rings, and that’s it! Why reinvent the wheel when you’ve perfected the wheel, right? The food is cheap and the place is relaxed. You get a burger, you hang out, you enjoy life — a timeless formula.
Louisiana: Judice Inn
> Location: Lafayette
The Judice Inn has never been an inn and has always sold burgers, ever since it was built by hand by its founders Alcide and Marc Judice. They’d just returned from World War II and wanted to provide the people with delicious and cheap food. The family business adds a Louisiana taste to its burgers with its secret sauce. They also pride themselves on not selling fries.
Maine: Harmon’s Lunch
> Location: Falmouth
Harmon’s Lunch — or Harmon’s Burgers as it’s often called — is another spot that keeps it simple and delicious. The little white building houses some indoor seating and plain decorations. They offer burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, fries, and onion rings and only accept cash. Harmon’s has the feel of an old-fashioned side-of-the-road lunch spot.
Maryland: Burger Bros.
> Location: Towson
Close enough to Baltimore to win “Best Burger in Baltimore” from Baltimore Magazine, Burger Bros. — tucked away in a nondescript shopping center — doesn’t peddle any gimmicks. They sell burgers, turkey burgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken wings, hot dogs, fries, and onion rings.
