The Blue Ox, Lynn

Open since 2009, this casual American spot in Lynn serves far more than superlative burgers. But it is, in fact, the burgers—hand-packed patties, topped with lettuce and tomatoes, and served with a spicy Maitland Mountain Farms pickle, in the house version, and, more intricately, with applewood-smoked bacon, truffle aioli, and Swiss cheese, in the “Sin” iteration—that have won the hearts and minds of Lynn’s denizens. The latter even won Boston magazine’s Battle of the Burger in 2013, 2014, and 2015, and remains a community favorite. 191 Oxford St., Lynn, 781-780-5722,

A&B Burgers, Beverly  

Named for owners Thomas and Nancy Holland’s sons, Alex and Ben, A&B Burgers is a casual, restaurant in Beverly that’s dedicated to quality food. Each son has his own signature burger on the menu: one with “A&B sauce,” American cheese, arugula, tomato, and red onion on a brioche bun; the other with the same ingredients and the addition of bacon. Other bespoke handhelds include a maple bourbon burger; a burger made creamy with burrata; and the Aloha burger, amplified with charred pineapple, bacon, whipped feta, and caramelized onions. 206 Cabot St., Beverly, 978-993-7394,
