Gourmet Burger

Elm Square Oyster Co., Andover 

Standout qualities: Meat is ground fresh daily, loosely packed and topped with charred red onions and a whole grain mustard aioli. Perfectly juicy, it is exactly the way a burger should be.

Insider tip: Owner Matthew Morello tried to take his divine burger off the menu earlier this year, but customer outrage brought it back, even more awesome than before.

Burger Joint

A&B Burgers, Beverly 

What’s Unique: The 7X Wagyu beef patties—for a $5 surcharge, upgrade to ultrapremium Japanese purebred beef from cattle that wander freely through forests and meadows, grazing on natural grass and sipping spring water. 

Fun fact: When the weather is nice and the garage doors roll up, A&B is Beverly’s first—and likely only—floor-to-ceiling open-air storefront.
