Best Burgers In Our Great Lakes State

Check out these recommendations from fellow members to find mouthwatering burgers around Michigan.

1J & B’s Bar & Grill

”Our favorite burger place is J & B’s Bar & Grill, 1060 M-32, Johannesburg. We feel that when you order a burger that is medium rare that it should be juicy, not dry, and that is exactly the way you get your burger each and every time at J & B’s. We have never been disappointed by the burgers, no matter how we order our burgers. It is the best burger around.”

-Michelle Rohr, Presque Isle Electric & Gas

2Talley’s Log Cabin

”Hands down, the best burger is served at Talley’s Log Cabin located at 2981 Co Road 612, Lewiston. I’m old enough to remember when Hilda Talley owned, ran and cooked at the bar. Her burgers, along with the famous chili she made, brought people from everywhere to enjoy her food.”

-Dennis Nelson, Presque Isle Electric & Gas

3Wagon Wheel American Grill

”Wagon Wheel American Grill, 7888 E. Grand River Ave., in
Portland was voted Best Bowling Center Burger by MLive. Call anyone
at HomeWorks, and they will tell you we have the best burgers around.”

-Terry Schrauben, HomeWorks Tri-County

4The Station Grille

”The Station Grille in Muskegon at 910 W. Broadway Ave., has THE BEST BURGERS, bar none!!! No one else can touch them. Our family makes special trips there to get one!”

-Tina Boarts, Great Lakes Energy

5Schuberg’s Bar and Grill

”Schuberg’s Bar and Grill, 109 N. Michigan Ave., Big Rapids,
is the best of the best. Look at their menu and your mouth will water!
My favorites include the Cowboy Schu, the Mushroom and Swiss Schu,
and, of course, the Big Schu. Schuberg’s delivers the small town feel, but lives up to the legend they have made.”

-Jessica Bergman, Thumb Electric

6Buckhorn Inn

”To anyone headed north of the bridge, I have lived in the U.P. and have eaten out at many of the popular eateries and ‘mom and pop’ restaurants, cafes, and pasty shops from the eastern U.P. to the west. But of the many burger/bar combos I have ‘participated’ in, the Buckhorn Inn, 31324 W. Main Street, Trout Lake, trumps all the others. Accompanied by its comical antique attire and friendly staff, not only is Buckhorn welcoming, but so is the ‘blink of an eye’ town of Trout Lake. In my opinion, the Buckhorn burger is the best of them all! Far and wide.”

-Nick Palmer, Great Lakes Energy

7Pure Country Family Restaurant

”The best burger is at Pure Country Family Restaurant, 601 W. 25th Street, Sault Ste. Marie. Bring your appetite! Amazing homemade food
and the George Strait burger, two 6-ounce patties on a homemade bun,
is excellent!”

-William Wolthuis, Midwest Energy & Communications

8Clyde’s Drive-in

”Been going to Clyde’s Drive-in, 1425 Riverside Dr., in Sault Ste. Marie for many years! It’s a throwback to the car service restaurants of the past. The burgers are amazing, and the Big C burger is worth it! Clyde’s is right next to the Rotary Island Park, so it’s a great place to grab amazing food and then go watch the boats.”

-J. Dorr, Presque Isle Electric & Gas
