Consider the burger. It’s a timeless menu item that can be enjoyed in so many different ways. Whether one prefers a veggie burger, cheeseburger, black bean burger, or triple-patty-extra-bacon-egg-and-cheese-burger with all the toppings, the combinations and possibilities are endless when it comes to this classic sandwich.

The burger competition in Bushwick has been fierce as of late, giving the neighborhood’s discriminating gourmands a plethora of delicious options to sink their teeth into.

In light of this, Bushwick Daily thinks it’s about time to let all the citizens of our beautiful stomping grounds weigh in on the burgerscape. Why let a small group of writers have a final say in what is clearly a subject everyone will have a take on?

So with no further ado, we present a list of some of the neighborhood’s best burgers produced by local, independent businesses. Vote for your favorite! And if you see one missing from the list, let us know in the comments!
