Flippin' Burgers (address and info)
You know a place is solid when it makes the official city tourism site. You can assume it's even better when it pops up on worldwide rankings from The Burger Guide, The Daily Meal, and Departures. But you know it's great when one of the most famous menu items is a simple, classic double cheeseburger with mayo, mustard, ketchup, and white onion. If you're working with grass-fed beef and baked-fresh-daily buns, you don't need much else.
The Little Lamby
Fergburger (address and info)
Queenstown, New Zealand
Customers have gone to tattoo shops with the logo in hand. International franchisers come begging for deals on the daily. And some sites have audaciously proclaimed Fergburger the "best burger joint on the planet." Despite opening as a hole-in-the-wall spot with no marketing team in 2001, Fergburger has amassed a sterling reputation worldwide. Converts praise it for its commitment to quality -- all the buns are baked in the next-door bakery, all the sauces are made fresh daily, and all the patties are hand-sculpted by the Ferg crew. Each burger has its fans, but the real move is the Little Lamby, a prime New Zealand lamb patty topped with mint jelly, red onion, lettuce, tomato, aioli, and tomato relish.
