The Village Idiot (address and info)
Any gastropub worth it's salt has a killer burger on the menu and The Village Idiot in Lexington does not disappoint. Its signature burger, dubbed The Idiot, is an embarrassment of burger riches, a half-pound of Angus beef topped with cheddar and a massive onion ring filled with pulled pork. When you've got all of this sandwiched between a warm pretzel bun, you'd be an idiot not to order The Idiot.
A cheeseburger with everything
Pat’s Snack Bar (address and info)
You know you're in a classic, bordering-hole-in-the-wall joint when your burger is served to you wrapped in plain white paper, with warm cheese oozing through that wrapper. This is how they serve the hand-formed patties at Pat's Snack Bar, and Manchester residents, both current and former, continue to fill the room for a taste of Appalachia's best burger. The burgers are made to order at Pat's; the cheese and bun added to the beef while still on the grill, ensuring maximum greasy goodness.
