Salt Lake City Has Some Of The Best Hamburgers In America

Travel + Leisure has this article describing its search for the best hamburgers in the US. It's conclusion? Houston is the best city in the US for burgers. And Salt Lake City came in at #2.

Below are excerpts from the article and accompanying slide show, raveling the ultimate American comfort food.

Which American city does burgers best? That inspires a lot of debate—but now Travel +Leisure readers have picked a winner. In our annual America's Favorite Cities survey, readers weighed in on the best features of 35 cities. While some categories had obvious contenders (like Chicago for pizza or Seattle for coffee), the race for the best burger seemed wide open.

No. 2 Salt Lake City
Locals have lined up in droves ever since the streamlined burgers of In-N-Out have come to town, but otherwise the area's burger personality is quite a bit more decadent—as in, pastrami burgers. To try a quarter-pound patty piled high with more beef, check out Crown Burger, where they also add Thousand Island dressing, lettuce, onions, and cheese.

On a personal note, I've been going to Crown Burger for many years. It's my favorite.

In addition, the Salt Lake Tribune has this article on Utah’s signature foods.
