Michigan residents have a passion for burgers. I did an "unofficial" poll on my Facebook page to find out where the best burgers are in Michigan. I never thought I'd get the response that I did. It really opened a can of worms; you didn't hold back about your favorite burgers in our state.

At first, I knew that you would share your favorite local burgers. I encouraged you to share your favorite burgers within the state lines. You did not disappoint.

One of my favorite burgers comes from Redamak's in New Buffalo. You can read what I wrote about Redamak's here.

What makes a burger "the best" burger? For me, it's all about the meat, freshness, the way it's cooked, the bun, and the toppings. I prefer a simple burger, grilled on the flat top with cheddar cheese, ketchup, mustard, pickle, and onion. If I don't add bacon then something is wrong with me. I have never been a fan of sloppy burgers with wet toppings like chili. I want to eat my burger with my hands, not a fork.

Two of my favorite places locally to get burgers in the past were Bonnie's Place and The Irish Pub. If you're local to Lansing, you know what I am talking about and you probably miss them too.

With dozens of responses to the question "who's got the best burger in Michigan?", I put together a list of YOUR favorite burgers right here in our beautiful state. Perhaps it's time to gas up the family ride and hit the road for some tasty vittles. Thank you for your feedback!
