5. Ri Ra Irish Pub 2801 Pacific Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

The Guinness Burger 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 make-up The 609 is the definition of a perfect AC burger.

6. The Palm 2801 Pacific Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

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.
