We've already told you about the best restaurants in Atlantic City, but what happens if you can't get a table at Chef Vola's? (FYI... you can't.) Well, you go out and get one of the nine best burgers in Atlantic City instead, obviously.
Here's Our Travel Guide to This Nation of Over 7,000 Islands
Bill’s Bar & Burger (address and info) While any burger at Bill’s is good, the Fat Cat (which may or may not have been featured on CNN’s best burger list in 2013) is definitely the way to go: the two Pat LaFrieda patties are topped with caramelized onions, LTP, and butter before being stuck between an English muffin.
One Tun Burger
Tun Tavern (address and info) 16oz of Certified Angus Beef + bacon + cheddar = one happy customer. Don’t forget to finish the side of fries and pickles either. Not up to the challenge? You can always downgrade to half the beef with the Pub Burger, a smaller version that tastes the same, but should keep you from weighing what this thing is named after for a little while longer.
Kobe Beef Burger
Old Homestead Steakhouse (address and info) Another monster of a burger, the 20oz Kobe Beef Burger costs a measly $43 and comes with mustard, chipotle ketchup, tater tots, and a bun that's wayyy too small for it.
Wagyu Kobe Foie Gras Burger
Gallagher’s Burger Bar (address and info) If you’re looking to class up your burger experience, then look no further: this delicious Kobe meat disc is topped with porcini mushrooms and foie gras from Hudson Valley.
Rí Rá Irish Pub (address and info) The Guinness BBQ is by far their most popular burger, but we think the beef patty, Taylor pork roll, caramelized onions, fried egg, and melted cheddar cheese that are combined to create The 609 are also the definition of a perfect AC burger.
The Palm (address and info) Named after the family who owns the Palm, this burger is doing the name proud. It’s given an ice bath to congeal the fat before being topped with aged Gouda, BBQ sauce, fried onions, and dusted with porcini and kosher salt. And the tastiness doesn’t stop there because it’s all put on a toasted brioche bun.
Teplitzky’s (address and info) Looking for a great burger but don’t want to get too crazy? Then the Teplitzky’s Burger is for you. The thick, juicy 8oz patty is topped with tomato, cheddar, and lettuce. The best part? It’ll only run you 12 bucks.
Kobe Beef Burger
Mussel Bar (address and info) Many think this is THE burger to get in AC. That might have something to do with the fact it’s got smoked mozzarella, BBQ tomato jam, and arugula tossed with balsamic vinaigrette before being served to you on a griddled house-made brioche bun. Or it might be because... wait, nevermind. That's totally why.
Knife and Fork Inn (address and info) These aren’t your everyday sliders from Applebee’s, or White Castle (hmmmm... White Castle). No, these small beef patties are made with Kobe beef and cooked to perfection. Then the chef adds loosely cracked peppercorns and caramelized onions before covering it all with the Mother of all French sauces: a blue cheese béchamel.
The world is tearing itself in two. No, it's not a line between Democrats and Republicans or even between Slytherin and Gryffindor. The age-old debate between New York and Chicago-style pizza has reignited after last week's announcement of a U.S. Pizza Museum coming to Chicago's South Loop.
The museum, created by Kendall Bruns, is highlighting America's sweeping pizza obsession through memorabilia. New Yorkers have had a strong reaction to the announcement. The logic goes that if anyone is going to play host to the U.S. Pizza Museum, it should be the home of the pizza rat.

You Can Get a Free Frosty & Fries from Wendy's Right Now
Dipping French fries in a Frosty at Wendy's isn't just a weird thing people do instead of using a perfectly good spoon, it's actually a powerful flavor pairing that's legit backed by science. And while we can't find a scientific study that says the popular combo will taste even better if you don't have to pay for it, we're just going to go out on a limb and say that it will. Well, starting on Tuesday, you can find out for yourself, with a new deal for free fries and a Frosty from Wendy's.
