To choose the best burger is to declare philosophy. For me, it's about great beef, perfectly cooked rare, which I’ll admit can be risky if you don’t know and trust your ground beef source. I don’t want too much bread, please no overpowering cheese (if you even want cheese on your burger), maybe some good bacon, possibly a tomato if they’re in season. And please, no salad on my burger. Lettuce greens have their place in things but I don’t need a mound of leaves on my beef.
Here are my picks for top five burgers in the Rhode Island area, plus an honorary pick and an in memoriam, because it was really difficult to choose five, and nearly impossible to put them in order.
