Summer is here, and we honestly can’t think of any food that screams “backyard cookout bliss” better than a big juicy burger. Because this is the one food item we crave most often once warm weather hits, (and since that’s already happened), we’re getting an early start.
Whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan, or meat lover, we’ve got 25 epic burgers that need to be on your summer grilling agenda.
Check them out below, and just see if you can get through this roundup without craving one!
Remember, burgers are best enjoyed outdoors, with good beer, a fresh side salads and among the best people.
