What’s not to love about a good burger? When done right, it’s a juicy, oozing sandwich of seared patty, crisp lettuce, and saucy spread atop a perfectly toasted bun that’s sturdy enough to hold it all together. And that’s just the simple side of things. Endlessly customizable, burgers reach new, flavorful heights when unexpected meat combinations and delectable toppings enter the fold.
Here in the Hudson Valley, incredible burgers are everywhere. We love ’em so much that we even have a whole Burger & Beer Bash dedicated to them. Yet with so many restaurants in the region, how can we possibly choose one burger to rule them all?
That’s why we need your help! We’re looking for the cheesiest, juiciest, and tastiest burgers in every Hudson Valley county. From Albany to Ulster, we want to know which burgers make your mouth water and set your eyes — and your Instagram feeds — aglow. Vote for your favorites in each county (or just one county) in our poll, then let us know what makes your top picks so extra-special. This is not a “vote to win” poll, so suggesting the same place twice will not increase its chances of making it into our upcoming print feature.
