The Utah Cheeseburger, Chubby's Neighborhood Cafe
Location: Pleasant Grove
Price: $ 7, 29 (Served with One-Page Choice)
At the first bite, the Utah Cheeseburger tastes like a burger-like cloud. Everything – from the buttery golden bun to the medium sized patty – is surprisingly soft and fluffy. This offer also includes salad, tomatoes, cucumbers, gravy and a pile of melted cheese. This softness was nice at first, I admit. After a while, I needed more contrast. A little extra crunch would have been nice. If crunch is not your thing, definitely, chow down.
Score: 6.5 / 10
The CHOM Burgers, CHOM Burgers
Price: $ 5.75  CHOM Burger has fancier burgers than this title offer, but I stick to the basics here. The CHOM, though in many ways quite standard, has some pretty flourishes. This is more of a fast food burger – thin beef pies, standard fixings, etc. – so it's all about running. And they do it very well. Thin patties tend to overcook, and CHOM avoids this bug here. Particularly noteworthy is the toasted potato bun of CHOM: light and fluffy, but not threadbare, all ingredients included. There's nothing wrong with this burger, but I think that's the point. Overall, a harmonious and pleasant burger.
The Goat Burger, Black Sheep Cafe
Price: $ 15, currently served only at lunch, (served with choice of French fries or Mexican street corn )
A few friends insisted on trying Black Sheep & # 39; s Goat Burger. It has people talking, and hey, I am nothing, if not a man of the people. This burger takes more risks than anyone else on this list. With great risk (and a high price) comes great responsibility. His ambition goes like this: a beef patty cooked medium-rare, garlic goat cheese, portobello mushrooms, roasted red peppers, arugula and chipotle mayo sauce (the latter served on the side), all housed in a large piece of nanniskadii flatbread. Whoa, that's a big old burger. Unlock your jaw.
The Goat Burger has the makings of something legendary – bold flavors, surprising combinations, first-class presentation. It is not easy to harmonize these many flavors and textures. Therein lies the problem of this burger: too much dissonance. The conditions are all out. The red peppers and Portobello mushrooms are too thick way there's too much rocket, and opting for low-profile flatbread instead of a traditional bun sacrifices the fluffy texture that burger desperately needs. The crucial taste of bread and meat is simply lost. And if they get lost in a burger, what do you have? The biggest advantage of the goat burgers – his potent and wonderfully spicy garlic goat cheese – can not save him. I applaud what the Goat Burger tries, but it has to be recalibrated.

The Bacon, Egg & Cheese Burger, Smokehouse BBQ & Burger
Price: $ 7.50 (served with the choice of a page)
If that were a good looking contest, Smokehouse BBQ would bacon, egg & Cheese burgers compete for the top spot. The burger is quaint, with a big pretzel bun, sliced bacon, melted American cheese and an egg fried easy. (Plus salad and a cucumber slice on the side.) It's unmistakably American. The individual components of this burger are pretty good – good enough to score a few points in this ranking. However, they do not exceed . It's not perfect – the cheese is flooding some of the other flavors, the bacon seems more pungent than bacon – but it still tastes like something else is missing, and I do not know what it is. I needed something to grab me like a signature taste or texture, but did nothing.

The Quarter Pounder, Ripple Drive-In
Price:  $ 3.90
When it comes to chaotic fast food burgers, Ripple's has a lot of practice. The restaurant has been in Provo for over 60 years. I'm not a historian, but that makes Ripple the oldest burger in town. In this case, practice is practically the master. The Quarter Pounder by Ripple & # 39; s makes all the simple things amazingly good. There's his juicy quarter-pound patty, his soft and juicy tomato slice, his lightly toasted roll, all of which are gradually falling apart in a handy package. This burger has no tricks, he is just good.
Points: 7.75 / 10
The Dragonslayer, Cubby's
Locations: Provo, American Fork, Spanish Fork, Lehi
Price: Single Patty $ 6.99, Double Patty $ 9.99
I do not know if this Dragon kills my taste buds? Consider her killed. The dragon slayer balances a number of outstanding flavors. Benefits include blue cheese, smoked bacon, spring vegetables, tomatoes, grilled onions and a special buffalo sauce, all served on a medium sized roast beef. The creamy buffalo sauce is the defining taste here – her sweet profile and the lively kick immediately catch the eye at the first bite. This burger is not too messy, but keep it in the Cubby wrapper while you feed down. The dragon slayer Patty, cooked medium while retaining its softness / chewiness, is not an overflowing patty as some of the online photos make it seem. Instead, it's more on the smaller side of the medium, fitting between the soft, doughy rolls of the Dragon Slayer. It is balanced, fresh and tasty; an ultimately satisfying burger.
The Jack Kerouac, Station 22
Place where: Provo
Price: $ 12.99 (served with the choice of a page)
First of all, this is one fantastic burger. The Jack Kerouac starts with the burger basics (patty, tomato, lettuce, onion, cucumber) and takes things to a new level with a slice of melted brie, bourbon sauce and apple wood bacon. The key to the shine of this burger is the dance between Bourbon and Brie. The melting of Brie facilitates – but does not sacrifice – its earthy, slightly sour taste. Then the bourbon sauce comes in with the casual sweetness. Have mercy! I prefer my burgers medium-rare, and Station 22 cooked it by mistake (though they did it right in the past). It's hard to smear a burger properly: these juices must be obvious, but not so dominant that the burger falls apart. With the bourbon sauce and a piece of aioli, the Jack Kerouac had almost made it. I only needed one piece more, and maybe I would have gotten it if my patty was medium-rare cooked. The Jack Kerouac is a discreet, but undoubtedly ambitious burger.

The Bleu Bacon Burger, Art City Trolley
Price: $ 11 (served with choice of a page)
There are sensations in life that you know you want, and others you never wanted to know. Burgers are no different. The best comfort and surprise you at the same time. With its Bleu Bacon Burger, Art City Trolley delivers both in abundance. There was the comfy: a 1/3 pound grass-fed patty; mixed greens; a large, buttery pretzel roll that really shone; Slices of honey and bacon. Then there was the surprising: balsamic vinegar, caramelized onions, bleu cheese spread and Gorgonzola crumble. The addition of sweet balsamic vinegar was virtuoso – he defused the sharpness of the cheese, with the sweet-spicy bacon (honey-cured – remember?) Melting the aromas in blissful harmony. Bravo, city car. Bow

The Baconburger of Utah, Argentine Grill and Café of Asado
Price: $ 12 (Served with French fries)
A last-minute supplement, asados Utah Bacon Burger should be taught in Burger Theory 101. (You know, in Burger College.) It checks so many boxes that a score less than 9/10 would be unfair. Bring your appetite for this – it contains a large patty (made from 100 percent chuck beef, not minced meat), medium rare, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheddar cheese and some notable thickly sliced bacon, served on a toasted ciabatta bun. This bun was a stroke of genius: perfectly airy and flaky, but sturdy enough to hold everything together, you can see the charred grill marks all over the bottom. Why are not more citizens using Ciabatta? The Utah Bacon Burger uses a threefold threat of ciabatta, medium-rare chuck beef and thick, tasty bacon slices that are both tough and sturdy. So offsets aromas and textures
The Artisan Burger, Antonella's Artisan Bread Café
Price: $ 7.39 (Served with Potato Chips)
I have eaten this burger more often than anyone else on this list. In fact, the burger in Antonella is what keeps coming back to me. I know, this time I tried to be impartial. Even with a calm head and stomach, this burger is still one of the best I've had in Utah County. Here is the reason: its not intuitive approach to bread and fresh toppings. Antonella's not holds back and charges his burger with a huge pile of fresh vegetables, tomatoes and red onions.
And the bun! My goodness. Bread is the specialty of the restaurant – the owner comes from a family of bread bakers – and this know-how is exhibited here. The burger's roll is huge, fluffy and spicy – for boldness, where most restaurants choose a smaller, tamer option. The big bun and the abundant toppings do not overwhelm the actual pate, which is covered with melted cheese. Instead, these supportive players absorb the extra juices that would overwhelm a less fortified burger without taking the spotlight off the pie. As I said, counterintuitive. This burger is just different than the rest. It's almost perfect – I would prefer it if the patty is cooked medium-rare rather than medium – but man, this burger comes very close.
